    Fractured Space
    Designed by members of the Strike Suit Zero developer team, Fractured Space is a capital ship space combat game, offering PvE, Co-Op and PvP. Within the game, players choose a ship class and customize its loadout further to specialize the ship, with teams being able to exploit synergies between different ship specializations. Given the vast potential of the game and the fact that it is free2play, we deemed this game to be an excellent choice to host for the EF.
    As such we will host the second Fractured Space event this Saturday, the 11th of Febuary at 4pm EST/ 9 pm GMT.
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.
    If you want to suggest ideas, discuss the game or make other recommendations, then feel free to do so in the EF forum here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/31185-future-ef-games-post-your-suggestions-here/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.

    By Conan, in Frontpage,

    Behold the Angry Army, Warriors of the Inner Sphere!
    Mission: This is a casual drop mission. We will group up and proceed with Quick Drops for the duration of the Event. This is an open event, all are invited.
