    Excellent vid selection. The last segment was the most calm target calling I have ever heard from an FC.

      He's blobbing them, no challenge, no pressure. Good pewers in hard fights are loud excited and work together on comms, there is a difference between chaotic comms and a group that works together well. If the best military action is anything to go by, then listen to recordings of actual Dogfights by the US and communications between JTAC (ground forces) and CAS (close air support) in high pressure battles.

        agreed, Flatline are super bad, if you want to see a calm FC fight outnumbered and still win feel free to watch this video :)

      Agreed. Good video.

      It would have taken Mintchip an extra 10min due to all of the 'umm…yeah', 'SOOOOO awesome' and looking at her crappily placed(and poorly utilzed)[teleprompter].

      So people, just know there are better options out there.

          You are missing out. For the ultimate in chill FC experiences, you've gotta fly a few fights with Kevin Lar in charge. He's an awesome FC that never yells. And he usually gives fair warning when he's been doing drugs.

          Really sad that he is no longer in my alliance, now that IRC booted his corp. His 100-man Fat Man Ballet abby fights against the Goons were a highlight of the past year in nulsec for many of us.

    A monkey could call those targets, it's 3 vids of people getting ganked.. there are no fights here at all, no threat at all to the group the footage is recorded from. I like the format of the video though, get some decent action and it could be really popular.

    1. I don't mean to be rude but that EVE

      "Fair" fights so very rarely happen. We take 3 videos uploaded this week and try to find a theme. We never said they weren't ganks. I just examined how the FC acted how the people in fleet acted and the results of said tactics. Glad you enjoyed the format there are more episodes I'd love to know what you think.

      1. norsegod

        no, its not eve. That is a completely dismissive way of looking at it. I'm not suggesting a "fair" fight has to happen, but a fight in which an FC has to maybe:

        – Select a target *tactically* not just try and blap either the only thing on the field or the ones who havent managed to run away yet
        – Make a tactical positioning, or call a warpin to ideally place his fleet
        – Switch targets to negate reps, kill incoming tackle

        These fights happen all of the time in eve and there are plenty of them available for you to choose from on youtube, the FC's in all three of these videos are not making any real decisions they're just participating in whelps. if you have an email address I can even forward some for you. Best of luck and I'll definately be keeping an eye on your vids.

        1. It's not their are not videos on youtube of good FCing it's just the format of the show is videos that have been uploaded this week. Perhaps in the future we'll do a look back at best fc's of all time or something like that. Thanks for the support and comments.

  10. -A- FC

    A bunch of small skirmishes and ganks with what sounds like a terrible FC.

    Makes me glad I am in -a- where the fights are hard and we are often outnumbered/gunned and still win.

  15. Horrible examples of good FCing. Try this ;

    Chatgris is an FC for Qcats, a Gallente Militia corps.

    In this video, he shows;

    – the ability to educate members (re: looking for celestials to align to)
    -strong target calling skills
    -calm and articulate
    -shows patience

    PS- There's a bit of hesitation after he thought the primaried rapier was dead but that happens. There's alot of stuff he does before the fight as well that gets everyone on one page in minutes.

    Honest question, not a troll: Why would Eve News 24 post this youtube link? Most of you are in large alliances and know what real fights and real FCing are all about.

    Even given that they were ganks, the FCs were terribad. No one called out whether or not the Brutix aggressed in the first video, Thorax should have been ordered to warp out after secondary points in the second video, no aggression calls in the third video. And no calls for bumps either. Doesn't bother me that these videos are on YouTube, but I wonder why EN24 deems this worthy of posting.
