Absolutely love this ending. Well done guys, congratulations on the victory!


we watched the same ??? i dont think so




Oh we did, I'm just enjoying the outcome a lot more than you are I suppose! I think a metagaming ending to this contest is the perfect eve ending.

Yeah I mean don't get me wrong, I love the scheming and politics in Eve, but I really cannot be arsed to watch a fight like this again and there have been too many in this alliance tournament. If even the finals end up like this then I'm not gonna bother with it anymore.

"unexpected" final in some sideshow in eve.

Metagaming is part of eve and it's everywhere, rightfully so and exploited likewise. That's eve.
From a viewers point it's getting old and boring to see it in the tournament though but i guess as long as people publicly rage and cry about it it serves it's purpose.

If people have problems with the metagame aspect then just dont watch next time and save yourself some "wasted" time and surely dont come here and cry about it.

It's eve wether you like it or not. Dont throw a fit because you "think" you have first dip in the honour pot.
Decide next year if you want to watch again or not, see you then Wink

If you don't like it, you could always sign up your own alliance for the tournament next year and actually play to win, much like Hydra + Outbreak just did! hth!

I got an idea.
Every Alliance in next years tourney turn up in T1 fitted Rifters. Brawl it out.
Then when tourney is over splitt the lootz with all teams that made it to final's weekend.
Profit.
Any takers? Rolling Eyes

What rule do y'all want? 'Don't make it too obvious when you make an agreement for one team to win'? I'm pretty sure if you wanted to ban metagaming the only way to do it would be to ban absolutely every team...

That said, CCP could respectfully ask the teams to at least put on a good show, as this probably hurts viewer numbers in later years (though I don't see why it should), which hurts [possibly] everyone.

I'm gonna think outside the box and disagree with pretty much everyone saying this was bad.

We wanted a proper slugfest for the final match and that's what we got, Outbreak and Hydra went at it guns blazing and Outbreak won in the fight overall...

However Outbreak and Hydra are friends, and they've just shown the whole community that's it's not all about winning, it's about taking part, playing an online game with your friends and just having fun. The fact that Outbreak won the fight but let Hydra take the match was an amazing showing of friendship between the two that got me a little emotional 'cos it's rare nowadays to see people being so generous to each other.

So from me, +100, good on them for showing all these Eve trolls that's it's not about winning, it's about having fun! Loved the tournament, loved the commentators, was a bit bored of all the Minmatar ships but y'know, can't have everything ;)

Looking forward to next year :D

There's no place safe in EVE from metagaming, especially not the AT, which is a delicious viper's nest of spying and deal-making.

You should make peace with that, or find a game where your cries of 'honor' will actually be listened to.

Notice how even the presenters were so disinterested and bored with the sham they stopped talking about it immediately once it was over, and moved onto other topics. Funny how none of the "<3 tears" crowd seemed to notice. I guess they don't want anyone to care... well, ok :-D I won't bother next year :-)

I absolutely love EVE because of its metagame, and all the backstabbing that it has. However the AT is supposed to be viewed by others, and say what you will it serves as a promotion for EVE. People who watch it watch it for the same reason they watch any other sporting event, which is to see a good game being played. As it stands the final would have been much better if all of Outbreak just self-destructed immidiately, or just left one of the frigates of HYDRA alive and then self-destructed.

This personifies EVE if you don't like it

you know what I'm going to say

GB2WOW.YARRRR!!

Well played Hydra and Outbreak, a well earned win


Hmmm that just proves the point that you're one of the few over inflated egos in this game that justifies the "Meta-Game". You're flying in the face of the majority view that this tourny turned into a farce. All Meta-Gaming achieves is the ruining of the game for the vast majority of players caught up in it. The only ones that benefit are that small clique of players who believe in the self centred hype that they are in some way better than every one else.

In this instance the vast majority of people watching would agree that this tournament final is probably the worst advert for this game that could have been thought of... come play EvE, nothing you do will matter because you're not even the boot scrapings on the bottom of the shoes of a small group of players with Oedipal complexes.

I think it was a crap ending to an otherwise amazing AT. It's supposed to be a combat tournament. FIGHT! lol

Kudos to the CCP folks involved in it and the commentators for putting on a great show. I thought it very telling how the 'winner' wasn't even mentioned nor was the 'match' even discussed when it was over. Smile

I was upset because the final match was really boring to watch, but threads like this make it worthwhile. Great job to the participants.
