We tried to put an entertaining brawl on at the end, with 2 viable teams. We didnt expect it to go so one sided. But at the end of the day if people don't like this happening then come and beat us.....

It's widely known that we have been working together and the last fight was conducted on the same TS server in the same channel.

Went a bit **** up at the end but really we could have had a fight that looked completely legit and it would have still been rigged, just you wouldn't have known so does it really matter?

Rigged or not, you could have at least given a proper show. You literally had nothing whatsoever to lose, even if you had zero control over the outcome.

But this, that was just lame.

Except you didnt have a brawl. If you have a brawl Outbreak would have won and the only critique against you would have been that u brought a crap setup. I love the meteagaming aspects of EVE, but in the end, the final just wasnt good TV.

good show, i find it funny all the tears being shed.

a lot of the people complaining dont even know what they are complaining about, trying to say the whole tournament was rigged is pretty stupid, ccp didnt assist in any way and was always possible things didnt go your way.

props to the careful planning and metagaming that these whiners dont even realize how much trouble you guys went through. a lot of pvp is decided on the fitting screen and if we really did have "honour" fights it would mostly be rock paper scissors type stuff so a lot of the competition is the leg work leading up to it the tournament and getting info on other team fits(which isnt always easy).

this is eve people. there are spies everywhere, scams, things arent always fair, and you should know this playing this game, and you are free to shed tears all you want about this tournament but it mostly provides lulz for the majority of us who can appreciate what happened here. srsly, if you dont wanna watch the next tourny good riddance. YARRRR!!

one thing that sort of baffled us though is where the damage from the vindicators was at the start? they were literally on 0 on the sleipnirs shooting with blasters... those sleips should have melted

Cheat? How was it cheating? we had to beat every team in the rules, yes the final was crap and we wish wuld could go back and do it different but knowing what you know now or knew then, would it make a difference?

Hydra were always going to win end off. We knew that and we did everything in our power to do it. Including the main bit of killing the other teams put in our way. Darkside were so close to putting a spanner in the works.

Really we had a WH in sis for about 2 months and did 5/6 hours testing every single day on every set-up. Now to the whinners... did you put that effort in?

srsly this, people are *****ing but dont even realize how much effort was put into this and the fact that every team they fought werent bought out or part of some huge conspiracy plan. and its like a bunch of these asshats think hydra and outbreak are suddenly bad at pvp and dont deserve to have won or something. good job guys and like its been said, maybe a more entertaining finals woulda been nice but still mad props to you both.

i for one congratulate you guys on beautifully engineering this the whole way although i'm a bit miffed since we might have done way better against your vindicator setup in the semis

in any case congrats on winning

You had to beat every team in the rules? Sorry, but I don't believe that anymore, not from people doing what you did. Enjoy your victory, but do not expect people to believe what you say anymore. That's the price to pay. Congratulations for the win.

Cheers

Believe what you like but the only "deal" made was Outbreak v RZR this was only so that Outbreak could get into the other side of the draw and hopefully, as at this stage it was early doors, would meet Hydra in the final.

We beat the other teams en route to this simplez.

Just to tell you guys that this was awesome, I was cracking up the whole time. The best part was the Oneiros blowing up at the last second. Ha, classic. :D
Anyway, I might just be a carebear, but I loved both teams' performance throughout the entire tournament. Very entertaining, good job.

Thanks, it was a proper brawl up untill we realised that the vindi team was getting owned big time which was a bit of a surprise.

This might be due to the fact that as we had, together, already won the tourney we fielded some players who weren't involved in earlier matches check the footage. This might have caused some confusion and miscommunication during the start of that fight. But as we were all on TS together and having a bit of a laugh we weren't too bothered.
