I think it goes without saying there were a lot of challenges this Alliance Tournament faced.
Beyond the technical problems, I really feel that some of the announcers had some serious difficulties.
Specifically Crovan stood out in the issue department. I don't know if this was a training issue, or just other
In addition to losing announcers left and right, many many technical faux pas all of your radio partners
were slightly off-sync, where they would talk over your announcers every match. Annoying.
The live video coverage though only a test went flawlessly (which was something only a select few
matches enjoyed in the audio broadcast). With live video coverage, the relevance of the of the
announcers becomes lessened in addition to feeling more engaged and entertained in
the whole process.
We love the alliance tournament and really appreciate the efforts of everyone involved, some of us
monitor every single match. I realize that EVE TV is hard, and expensive.. But it also generates
revenue through "spreading the gospel" as it were. I would love for EVE-TV to cover the entire
tournament. If it's too expensive to do twice a year, I would rather see fewer tournaments with
higher quality coverage.

I too would love for a 100% eve tv tournament. Unfortunately, the last time CCP did that it cost them over 1 million USD. So as much as I'd love to see it, its just too expensive.
