Please forgive me


Repent and all is forgiven? Repenting involves knowing what exactly one did that was...WRONG? I mean. This reads like someone didn't realize they were in the backroom when they made the deal.

It's like this. When you stack the deck, you're cheating. Of course, you weren't the only one. Everyone involved and the EVE announcers who served as your apologists in order to save face. I find it difficult to believe grown people with no moral compass.

All is forgiven as soon as all involved admit what it was they did that was WRONG WRONG WRONG. Till then, this so-called "Tournament" will be known as rigged front to back.

I can't believe anyone would sell their credibility so cheaply.

"Some people may see this as cheating, but it's the way EVE is." Right, folks. We're a bunch of cheaters. After all, it's EVE.

Reminded me a lot of the FingerPoke of Doom in WCW , which coincidentally helped sink the promotion.

You dont have to apologize at all because you dont care audiance ever, this is just s**t talk. If you have some balls to really apologize refuse the prize. You dont need wall of texts to cover your fail most of the eve oldies knows how garmon or genos players is good. I hope CCP learned his lesson.

As confused and disappointed as I was, you guys surely know how to coordinate.
With all the apologies and sadness, I suggest you donate the price money to the next " plex for aid" event. This way at least something good would come from it !

Finally I`m sure we wont be seeing any new alliance teams come in, thanks to the massive efford put into metagaming, and considering the limited versatility of this tournies fleets (Rush min/gal, Kite/Ecm Cal) there is no sense in competing.
You are the best in espionage ,but with this omniscent knowledge base you have ruined the one thing, that makes this tourny fair.

I`m feeling actually sorry for the Hydra/OB combo, because you will from now on be considered total liars and cheats, so prolly even Goonswarm wont be dealing with you anymore.

CCP will have to find a way of dealing with this via the tourny rules, you guys didnt break any rules, but u literally took a dump on the passion , empathy and joy of all viewers.

I fully understand why you guys fixed the match, i would probably have done the same thing in your position. However a little more subtly in your handling of the fix would have made the match better for everyone...

Now, as repayment to the community, I want to see Garmonation 8 with Vangels in it! Very Happy

Wall of text. I believe in what i see and for what i care all the matches you guys won, might have been fixed. Either way, the fact remains that hydra and outbreak will be remembered as the participants of the lamest and most disappointing final in the history of AT.. Good job.

PS and cut the metagaming bull****, lame is lame.

It looked like serious line-ups & a serious fight for about 2mins, so I'm amazed Outbreak got the upper hand on you so quicklyShocked

Having said that, Hydra deserved to win as you can't have the pupil beating the teacherugh

Dear OP,

This was the first Tournament I'd ever seen and, due to family commitments, I was only able to watch the final live. I had high expectations.

It was perfect - everything I hoped it would be and more. I started giggling about two minutes in. It was the most perfect Eve moment I've ever seen captured: funny, meta, hard to explain to outsiders, guaranteed to be the subject of anguished posting ad nauseam... It was everything I already love about Eve, distilled into a spectacle.

I can't wait to see how anyone's going to top it next year.

You're not only forgiven, I congratulate you.

As Shadooo would say little too late...

A tournament is called a tournament for a reason, while meta gameing is perfectly fine in EVE it's not in a tournament.
IMO EVE tournament is for 2 reasons:
1. For alliances to make a name for them self
2. To entertain the viewers


While we can put a check next to 1. I'm pretty sure we can't put it next to 2. Because a riged final it's just sad and upsets a lot of viewers.


You guys just turned away alot of ppl from watching next year tourney. And also ruined the hard work of EVE TV...


Exactly!

Why plan anything? Just fight each other and let the best team win. That's what a competition is all about.

I'm sure no one would care if it wasn't televised.

Don't worry, the people who though the final was lame should try 0.0 pvp.... This was pretty much sweet revenge to all the 0.0 POS heroes, the blob fighters the loggers and the hot droppers.

This post was brought to you by Logitech brand leader in PC peripherals. Very Happy

There is a simple solution for everyone.Idea
Those who hated the final getting spoiled by idiots, just block the alliances and mark them as bad contact and kill on sight.

I nominate this as THE best post of this entire threadnaught. Congratulations, you've won Eve.

That said, I do agree with this sentiment:


Originally by: Issler Dainze
Thanks for sharing all the work you put into the AT. Both teams clearly deserved to make it to the finals. But...

If you were going to tank the final match I wish you would have done it with more style. Why not have both teams show up with low level frigates, civilian level gear and rockets then really fight it out to the end. It would have been hilarious!

Wardec would be "playing by the rules".. and as we have now learned, you people dont play that way.

All I am saying that only thing you won this year is just really bad taste for the name of your alliances.

guys seriously, 24 hours after the event and all the weak eve players are still creating nonsense posts.

Winners do what losers won't.

So many of you do not understand eve.

No-one cheated
No-one broke any rules

Some of you got robbed of 10minutes of your life wathcing 2 mates thinking...JOB DONE and having a blast after smashing all other opposition. The simple fact is they were better than anyone else.

Does it affect anyone other than in OB or Hydra who actually won?

Ok, some people bet on OB to win... well i'm sure the people that bet on Hydra arn't complaining.

You could have given the community a show to remember, an epic fight, an epic laugh, ANYTHING, but instead decided to take the trolling to 11 and spit in the face of CCP and 30k viewers.
I hope CCP trolls you back, hard

THIS - and from the looks on the CCP panel's faces after that farce of a match, and from their comments today, good luck trying that travesty again next year. In the game yah you get your stupid 'lols'... to be so childish in a televised tournament was incredibly short sighted and selfish.

I did ask CCP to have a seriouse think about banning such silly things... but they din't so I just cant feel sorry for anyone apart from my corp mates, If they forgot to collect some important corpses then no pat on the back, ill eat my way through them all.

for all you ladies who feel cheated

if you still feel sore about 0utbreak or think it was easy to keep duncan alive for so long with his muppet piloting.....

then find us in space BUT spred your legs and relaise your just another one of them.
