I am interested in doing an AT8 DVD and maybe BLURAY.

I would assemble the footage provided by CCP (with permission) and any Adverts submitted and burn them on a dvd or possibly make it available for download (I have 50mbps fiber).

What I am trying to gauge is interest and value.

Please bump this thread if you would be interested in acquiring a copy of said DVD and how much in ISK you would be willing to pay.

Please remember that I would have to provide DVD's sleeve/cases and shipping.

Thanks ahead of time.

Can I get an official ruling on whether or not I can use CCP footage for a dvd? Videos will be used exactly as posted on youtube

AFAIK in the United States, as long as you have the permission of CCP to publish thier Internet TV Broadcast, then you would be able to distribute the DVDs.

And I, for one, would love one.

Considering costs for shipping and materials (especially international shipping), it'd probably be equivalent of a PLEX, so figure 200-250mil ISK?

Great idea tweakboy. Would you be making said dvd's on your iphone while driving down the highway and pvping? I hope not, could be dangerous to the people around you.

I'm interested, willing to pay a plex, maybe more.

Why don't you do DVDs of previous tourneys in the meantime?

I really enjoyed the fanfes/alliance tournament DVD that came with EON magazine a few years back, and would love to see something like that avilable again.

I WOULD LOVE THIS!!!

if you can do this while still providing premium quality and what not go for it man, remember get the permission from CCP and ill buy it for sure. though i dont know the rules around the EULA but according to the EULA you are not allowed to trade any ingame money for RL objects. i dont know if this DVD would count as one of those things. or maybe it could be put on as the same basis as what the GTC's are. either way this would be a fantastic idea. and i would think aprox 1 plex which sounds suitable. and if your doing this on a large scale (you might get 2000 copys ordered which is a high possibility), you can get rebaits from shipping companys for doing this in such a large scale.

More bump.

I second this. And if we're going to have a DVD, why don't we go all the way, and have a board of competitors, with character names, ship, ship fittings, and the like?

I would be willing to pay at least one PLEX for this. Probably two (that's a fairer price - $30 USD)

I wonder if CCP might support this in-house?

Devs, look at this thread!

By the way, no, I am not an alt of dairusire, i'm a corpmate.

What I have been missing the past years are interviews with the teams that make it through to the quarter finals.
They currently have to post their experiences on the forums which is just not proper for a sporting event such as the Eve tourny.

Something like that would likely have to be done by EveTV (even if just audio) so probably wont happen in my life-time though Sad

As for a DVD; if you get permission then perhaps working together with the EveTV team to get better material than that which is posted on Youtube might be in order.
Was a lot of abrupt beginnings/endings last year in the posted vids as I recall .. they may even produce a DVD proper but in that case they might as well throw it up as a torrent for people to fetch/burn on their own.

I hope you realize the quality posted in YT is nowhere near what is needed for a decent BluRay.

Good luck with your crappy BluRay, though. :)

Bump for a great idea.

Wonder if CCP would jump on this and nom nom all the royalties from it though...or whatever you want to call it.

This is a cool idea. We are looking into this to see if it's a possibility. I will keep you updated.

Always nice to have CCP chime in after 4 mails and a petition. :-P

FYI: TweakBoy was sold and this "Idea" now belongs to Jupacha A.K.A. TweakBoy 2.0.

Don't send money to Tweak, as this idea hasn't been approved and he won't send you a dvd, at least not one about AT8 (ymmv).

I patent/copyright/drm this idea so there is no tomfoolery with CCP stealing it for their own ISK making schemes.

Would you be able to provide more details? Such as will this be a free service, for ISK, or for real life money? We are still looking into this and we may have additional questions.

As sticking with the EULA and other rules imposed by CCP regarding hard and soft services I was thinking that an ingame ISK/PLEX payment system would be most acceptable.

The current economy suggested in the above posts indicate that around 1 PLEX per DVD shipped is acceptable to a large portion of players.

I would be providing the authoring, burning and shipping of said DVDs. That would, in essence, make this a cash for isk trade. If this is unacceptable to CCP I can buy a ****-tonne of PLEXes and then donate them too CCP and you guys can mail me blank disks, stamps, etc.

On that same note, if CCP wants to snd me some raw HD footage on HDD (maybe include AT6/AT7) then more accolades to the awesomeness that is CCP (hint hint).

CCP can have final say over whether the product ships, and to facilitate that I can upload an ISO (50mbps synchro fiber FTW).

Any other questions? Please contact me ingame/petition/evemail/email/phone.

I would suggest making the footage available in a torrent file or website download, as creating a dvd might require the transfer of funds from one person to another, and I'm not sure how CCP would feel if you were "selling" their stuff. I'd gladly seed a torrent.

I support this idea, but only if the content from CCP is also publicly made available via torrent, so that no one person has an advantage to make billions of isk off of it.

But i would gladly pay tweak a plex for his work compiling it into a DVD, but other could have the option to compile it themselves. etc.

Why not? It was his idea in the first place and he will be doing all the work. If CCP gives him the green light why should anybody else get to cash in on his idea?

Also I too would love to see this go forward.

Can you explain why?

Is it due to shipping addresses?

I will happily seed a torrent instead....

Bumb for great idea.

AT8/7/6 DVDs would be teh sexay. i could understand CCP not wanting to use torrents since there is not a way to regulate who downloads what. Shipping DVDs ordered through the EVE Store would be nice. I'd gladly purchase all three Alliance Tourneys on DVD. Still curious to see what CCP wants to do.

I am quite happy to have an unofficial copy if VII & VIII. However I have no intrest in snail mail, a DVD/Blueray is so old hat, might as well put it on vinyl or record it on a tape.

I also do not care very much who produces it. Having a nice AT archive would suit me, and would when rewatching AT matches allow me to hop back and forth in a most pleaseing way.

With that said, I would not be willing to part with more than 100m isks, and if you wanted volume 50m isks would be better.

However if you were gona compile it for your self anyway, the best way might be to ! - do it for free, downloadable from eve-files or similar (maybe as an image file) with a "please donate some isk to" sign.

Just a though, because watching AT online is a pain with bandwith limits, and the format. (although for the first watch threw its rather cool). Smile

If you plan to release a dvd with tournament #8, u maybe should do dsme with 1-7, as much as ccp help you with or by their own management.

Contact me ingame by interest.
