On the video Eve Online - AT8 Day 5 - Leguinea Romana v HYDRA RELOADED. The Hydra Claymore apparently starts the match in 50% structure, 50% armour and 70% shields, but the commentators make no mention of this.

Can anybody explain ?

They do mention it at the end of the fight. In the alliance tournament, once you have warped to your beacons and are waiting for the countdown it is illegal to move your ship. If you do move your ship before the countdown has finished you will be penalized 50% shield, armor and structure HP. The commentators noted that HYDRA could have moved the ship deliberately to encourage LR to shoot at their strongest tanked ship.

So there you have it.

I like how sometimes the commentators overanalyze and starts conspiring... Like the 2nd match where we (BDEAL aka Important Internet Spaceship League) dropped a can at 0.

In reality it was just a last ditch effort to give a pilot some dampening scripts because he forgot about them... Amateur efforts being highlighted as planned and very clever moves 4tw hehe

Moving a ship once is just an pilot error, "Oops, mouse double click in space..."

Doing it TWICE requires some real effort (Mactep in their FlagShip Bhaalgorn) and then forgetting to rep up the 75% structure dmg it has before next match, priceless :P

HYDRA is just really bad. People think we're strategic, we're just ******ed at times.
