Not gonna bother watching the next tourney to be honest.
I think both teams have some truely awesome pilots among them but i feel robbed of what i think would of been one of (if not the best) Final in ally tourney history.
What is the point in watching if the outcome is rigged?
There is no fun in that.
Congrtaz to Hydra i suppose. Rolling Eyes

I wonder what CCP ~really~ thinks about this final battle...?

I think it is mixed. Some will say that this is EVE Online and cheating/scamming is valid, this is completely true.

However only very few people like watching obvious fixed fights. The people that say that they like such fights are only interested in the responses from the viewers. This makes the Alliance Tournament far less interesting, it has become less of an epic battle and more of a clown fight. And as far as I can see there is already a decline in popularity. This is something that CCP doesn't like.

This is EVE, not Hello Kitty Online, to the hater´s this teams worked together and beat up all others, they won together, when they wanna put up a show in the end, they earned the right to so so.

Worst AT yet.


+1

Just to be clear... the reason the final is the worst ever is because it was the same team fighting each other. For the commentators to eat it up and claim that they had "earned" their success, when they obviously doubled their chance to win by entering two teams, are complete morons. I lost a lot of respect for CCP today.

All that build up and all those matches, and it ends up in this farce!


Exactly, so many people have invested so much time and work to compete as well as they could and offer us four days of exciting fights. This final was such a cold shower :(

Both outbreak and hydra should be banned from next tournament


Not only this. They should be banned from the CURRENT tournament as well. They should NOT receive the prices!


Don't worry, they won't receive the "prices" they will however receive the "prizes".

Honestly I too found it a bit odd that a team that had just wiped the floor with 80% of the enemy team with no losses (And almost no damage) could then lose the match horribly like that. I'm not calling staged, as I've seen weirder things happen in eve battles. But then they mentioned the oniros was RR the enemy team. That raised an eyebrow. Still it was entertaining, and if legit was a hell of a comeback.

This is the first tournament I have seen and probably going to be the last. The outcome of that final makes me want to swing from the ceiling. I've literally wasted all day to see this final. They should be disqualified, it's an obvious fix unless i've been licking the backs of too many toads and i'm missing something.

I'm of two minds.

One the final battle should have been an honest battle. even if they brought rifters and went for the last man standing, not really an alliance tournament but something /honest/.

Then there is the EPIC meta game and HOURS and HOURS of polticing, plotting and planning that went into this. Never knowing if they would succeed to be the 1 - 2 temas. The training.. Serious win there.

But do I think CCP should void the battle. There was no rule against it.. Can't write the rules after the act is done (BUT I ANT THEM TO)

ccp promated this, iam sorely disappointed, it was an obvious rig, they said it themselves, that two alliances coperated in getting into the tourney and had ccp switch sides so they could fight each other. i am disappointed in the finals match and was surprised that the annoucers did not say something about it. as far as i am concerned no prizes should be awards and the the semi fianls losers should battle for the prize.

Boring/lame final, but they earned the right to do what they did. I like how soundwave basically ignored the final completely and asked the panelists about their favorite tournament moments. A lot of the crybabies in here would do well to follow his lead.

Every bit as meaningful as the World Wide Wrestling Federation, which is not "world wide," not "wrestling," and not a "federation" but an entertainment company that is only nominally publicly traded, being 96% controlled by the McMahon family, of which Linda McMahon tried to buy herself a US Senate seat with a self-financed 2010 campaign.

I guess that makes the EVE Tourney Final "real," but in a fairly disgusting sort of way.

Dunno what everybody's so mad about. Yes, Outbreak threw the match, but before they stopped firing they smashed Hydra to pieces. Outbreak was the superior team (or at least the team with the superior set up). If it makes you feel better, just tell yourself Outbreak won. I mean, they'll be splitting the grand prize anyway, who cares?

And yet why is a "World Cup final" more important? That's just a stupid sport someone watches where as this is a game people put hours and hours into playing. A tournament like this is more personal to someone than some sports world cup.

Absolutely disgraceful final. They were going to share the prizes after the tournament anyway, there was no reason for them not to give us a proper fight other than some little *****es in Hydra having to be on top and having their names on the trophy. ****ers!

Sad but true, meta is a huge part of eve but maybe you should drop the name Tournament to something like Alliance Show.. Wonders how many will pair up next year as most seem to copy what they see in past years. Also probably my last time viewing the AT's as it seems its no longer about honor.

Agree with the OP. Yes Metagaming is a part of "normal" EVE. But "fair" arena fights are not. The tournament format is in fact NOT part of normal EVE but designed for the explicit purpose of showcasing "fair fight" PVP and make good TV entertainment for 20-30.000 viewers. I dont blame HYDRA or 0utbreak for playing the game. But after this, the ruleset needs to change before the next tourney. Because if THIS is whats going to happen, I am not gonna be arsed to stay up and watch. I'd rather just read about it in the forums the next day.

Yeah, and GG to Vile Rat and Mittens for showcasing their cluelessness on the difference between a sandbox and a arena format.
