MAKE THE GODDAMN SINGULARITY WORK KTHX

Singularity is currently down for a schedule maintenance. As have been said before, this server is not specifically for the testing of alliance tournament setups and fights, and as such we cannot always accommodate people, however, we do try as much as possible, since we all want the best setups and the best fights in the tournament.

Well, then maybe you could arrange a server for practicing for the alliance tournament? Or would you like to see trash setups and untrained pilots duking it out?

Would you watch a football world championship where the teams were not able to practice?

We all want to see a more interesting alliance tournament.

In the future, could you leave one of the servers up, even on an old mirror, throughout the tournament season without changing anything? I know we would appreciate it, as would all the people who have been put out (it must have been hundreds) in the past few weeks of server choppiness.

A couple of years ago, when it was just PL who did any kind of serious practising this wasnt so much of an issue, but now with most alliances running frequent practices, a stable test server would increase the competition in the tournament by a fair degree.

Sure. They have it up and running 23/7... It's called Tranquility.

Not a very amusing troll, but I'll answer nevertheless. Practicing on tranquility is

  1. Prohibitively expensive for everyone except the richest alliances. There's a reason why faction and officer modules are not allowed in the tournament.

  2. Impossible to do without showing your setups. It's hard enough as it is to avoid it. Training on tranquility would make it nearly impossible.

lol i love it how everyones like cant they just put up a new server for us to practice on, forgetting that servers cost money and would mean more upkeep needed! which they struggle with atm with sisi as it is, having to bring in the new rules and all.

Yes, god forbid CCP does something properly. "Half-assed" is their second name, after all.

Providing a way for teams to practice is a prerequisite for a tournament where skill determines victory, rather than luck.

You missed the point here. It's a prerequisite for a team owners, not for tournament organizators.

Yes, because the alliance tournament was not CCPs idea. They don't advertise it, don't stream live matches, and generally care very little. Also, they didn't just accept around 70bil ISK for 4 teams to secure their participation, and tournament fees are not 2 bil per alliance, payable to CCP. No, it's just a side event for them. The main show are 500 man supercap lagfests where the winner is the alliance who was first in the system.

CCP don't care whether the alliance tournament is a fun event, both to watch and to participate in.

Sure, they do it just as any good organizator would. Get your mind straight, will you?

Outdated information.
I've undocked fine with the current build on Duality.
Even shot a bunch of rats.
