Amarr, Domain - Three Guardian Vexors are slated to be given away through a lottery as rare as the prizes themselves, the Interstellar Correspondents have been informed.
The Guardian Vexor, a variant of the widely-available Vexor class cruiser, is prized among collectors for its expanded drone control systems that allow it to field twice the number of drones normally supported by sub-capital ships.
During a recent interview, Chribba estimates that out of a possible fifty-five Guardian Vexors known to have been made available to capsuleers nearly five years ago "Thirty to Thirty-five Guardian Vexors are still in existence." It is also unknown how many of them may sit in retired capsuleers hangers; Chribba agreed "I'm sure they could be, or kept as trophies."
Whatever the number may be this is a chance for all of New Eden to acquire a piece of Gallente history. Chribba stated "Most seem to enjoy the chance to own such a rarity for a small sum of ISK compared to buying one for some 15-20 billion."
Speaking of the reaction to the lottery so far, Chribba stated that the interest had been overwhelming. "I estimate it to end in a few days as about 75% of the tickets have been sold."
"I'd like to thank the owners of the ships for providing me the chance to make such a special lottery," stated Chribba. "Thank you to the pilots of New Eden for showing such an interest in this event."
