The iconic leader of the Clusterfuck Coalition and his opposite number have agreed to participate in a duel which will seal the fate of the Fountain war. The one on one fight will take place in RP2-OQ on Sunday 21st July, and is expected to be watched by tens of thousands of players. The winner of this event will take over the region of Fountain, the stakes of a 1v1 duel have never been higher.
Initially suggested as a joke during the early days of the way, the idea gained popularity with Test's directorate after it became clear how protracted the war would be. Although Test's wallet has managed to keep its head above water thanks to donations, it's likely that avenue of funding will soon dry up. With Pizza attacking and destroying R64 moons in Delve and the CFC occupying them in Fountain, it seems unlikely Test will be self-sustainable while the war lasts. It appears that BoodaBooda accepted the idea after realising that the odds were not in Test's favour, hoping to bring the war to a close sooner rather than later.
The CFC had a different reason to accept it. Test does not stand alone in the war- assistance has slowly been pouring in throughout its duration. Major powers such as N3, Pandemic Legion and Northern Coalition. have joined Test in their fight against the CFC, and the recent expiry of their agreement with Black Legion to not attack structures also seems to have been a contributing factor in The Mittani's decision to accept.
The CFC and Test have agreed that should either side fail to honour the agreement, any future diplomatic agreement should be considered forfeit. Thinking of trying to interfere in the fight? Think again. Hundreds Test and CFC bubblers will be working to create a safe arena for the two parties to do battle, which will be around 500km in radius and will consist of hundreds of large bubbles. The ring will be guarded by 50 Tornados from each team, ready to alpha anything that tries to enter the arena.
This is the first time a major nullsec war will be decided in the manner, with the stakes higher than in any other single battle in Eve's history. The entire war will be decided by just one fight, which could last for mere minutes. The fight itself is likely to be watched by thousands of people in person, who ideally will be gathered peacefully around the arena. To ensure fairness, the only people in fleet shall be The Mittani, BoodaBooda and Chribba, who has agreed to referee the match. This will prevent the use of off-grid boosting. Although it's not known what ships will be used to duel, it's expected that only T1 frigates will be used. There will be no fitting restrictions, meaning implants and any modules may be used in the fight.
Battle will commence at 20:00, and if you can't make it to RP2-OQ in person there will be other places where you can watch the most decisive duel in Eve's history. This five minute long engagement will determine the fate of thousands of players and leave an imprint on nullsec politics for years to come.
