The video name is drawn from Battletech/MechWarrior and roughly means honorable combat.
This video is mostly solo with 2 small gang fights thrown in. I have NO gang links, pirate implants, K-space scouts, hidden support, or fighting with gate/station guns on my side. For the WH stuff I do have a scan ship inside with me as I don’t want the WH to close and be trapped inside forever/self-destructing.
The video is in full screen view. I recently purchased a new monitor (wide-screen) with my new computer and I knew the footage would not mix well so I had a choice of throw the footage away, not use my new monitor, or make an Eve PvP video out of it. I obviously chose the latter with this post here. The footage is at different quality due to buying a computer that can handle Eve at full graphics. Future videos will be in wide screen at max graphics.
For the vs list, white means alive and visibly on-grid, yellow means it has left grid/cloaked/jumped, and red means dead.
Length: ~ 15 minutes
Ships Flown: Talos, Vengeance, Ishtar, Hyperion, Sacrilege, Drake
Marilyn Manson - Resident Evil Theme (intro graphics)
Paul Udarov – The Chosen
Apocalyptica ft. Marta Jandova – Wie Weit
Last Exile OST - Road to the Light (middle graphics)
Last Exile OST – Fleet of Little Ships
Ashley Mac Issac – Wing Stock
I hope you enjoy the video. I make piloting mistakes, you will not find flawless execution of Eve piloting in this video. Hopefully the music won't make your ears bleed.

Cool video, really liked how you played with the wormhole mechanics to fuck over those tengus.

The 1vmany fights were easily the best thing in this video. Some of the other fights just looked like super pushovers, though. A better transition between your intro/talos intro would also probably help the quality. Still an enjoyable vid, made even moreso by the lack of scouts/links/etc.

Thanks everyone for your responses.
For the 1 v 1s, I wasn't quite sure how people would respond to it, especially the frigate stuff as I haven't flown one much since I was able to afford cruisers and certainly never FRAPSed any footage so it was a bit of an experiment. Mostly I picked the songs I wanted for the 1 v many clips (and the rattlesnake kill) and then fit in what 1 v 1 fights I had around that.
Actually, the 2nd CG scene in the video was going to be something different:
That image is a single frame of a scene that would end with the Talos in the exact same position as the Talos at the start on the Rattlesnake clip to provide a neat transition. Some files were corrupted which would cause about 70 more hours of GPU rendering to take place in which 99.9999% of my graphics card would be used for that preventing me from actually doing much of anything with my computer. As I had just finished a 72 hour render sprint like that I created the middle CG in an hour and combined it all together for release.
As for the first scene, yeah, no excuse on the lack of transition there, hehe.
