Seriously?! A tournament where you can bribe and pay your way to the top? ... Worst tournament, and i tought that CCP would consider atleast changing the rules.. This is just stupid and a waste of the viewers time!

The metagaming is the best part of the alliance tournaments and EVE in general. Makes everything unpredictable.

Eve Tournament is far more honest than the World Cup.

Welcome to Eve, where fights can come down to more than just who has the bigger ships and the bigger guns.

And how would you ban it? How do you know any result isn't due to an agreement made in a private convo? At least let it stay open so we know sometimes when it happens.

Since there is no way of preventing people from different teams communicating with each other - it's best to keep the rules that way. Who would want to control the teams using means of commuication like E-Mail, voip etc...

Frack Off! Do you seriously think the real world of professional sports dosen't have behind-the-scenes negotiations? Players come and go, but its the Owners who decide who will win.

Can you think of a game or competition that does not have some secret mney change hands to affect an outcome?

Grow the hell up.

And if you don't like the metagaming, too bad, the tournament is streamed live in high quality for FREE, if you don't wanna watch it, go back to mining asteroids.

Truth is, if people buy their way to a victory it implies they have no confidence in their own skill and this will probably be reflected in their combat. At negative ten we're sure going to fight, it's in our nature.
