Just want to say a few things regarding my take on this year’s tourney:

Thank you to the staff, volunteers and dedicated people behind the scenes that all invest time and effort into bringing all of the fans what has been the best alliance tourney yet. Too bad the final match was not taken seriously but that is for the other 400 threads on the forums about it.

-Level of professionalism and technical / social production better than any previous year (from the HD feed stability to the stage props, camera and mixing)

-Level of real world performance in the realm of true entertainment was well above the norm for what we have seen. Another two or three years and you will be ready for the major networks!

-I liked the fact you decided to wear decent clothes on the FINAL day. Props. Forget all the kidz comments...

Seriously, thanks to all of you who make this happen and continue to improve on it year after year. Looking forward to the next.

Agreed completely.

Much better than previous years on all counts! Especially the commentary and little insights into what's coming.

PS: Bring back Shadoo next year!

That won't happen... A tournament is called a tournament for a reason, while meta gameing is perfectly fine in EVE it's not in a tournament.

IMO EVE tournament is for 2 reasons:
1. For alliances to make a name for them self
2. To entertain the viewers

While we can put a check next to 1. I'm pretty sure we can't put it next to 2. Because a riged final it's just sad and upsets a lot of viewers.

Yeah, thanks CCP for a great tourney. I enjoyed both weekends a lot.

nice organizing ccp but that's the last time i watch a tournament. Metagaming's lame

I agree, great job CCP!

However, I will not be watching any more Tourneys due to what happened and the joke made of your hard work and the work of others by the "finalist", outbreak and hydra. I feel bad for all the teams who actually worked hard to do well and it was sad to see how fixed even the Eve Tourney is.

Good job to all those teams who were in the tourney (except hydra and outbreak) and win or lose at least you tried your best. Much respect.

Overall a very good show, gets better each year.
Even Zastrow had his moments. ;)

Final fight was a huge let down though. Meta gaming being a fun/crucial part of eve does not make it very entertaining to watch in this environment. No idea why they didn't fight it out instead of that silliness.

Posted - 2011.06.19 22:14:00 - [23]

Thanks for all of your hard work. It was fun to watch, and it was a great distraction from all of the things I should've been doing this weekend. Laughing

In fact, I'm so distracted that I somehow accidentally logged into my alt's account instead of my main's.

Awesome tourney although it was rather tiring with so many matches on each day. It would've be nice to have them spread over more weekends but I suspect real life timing restrictions made that impossible.

CCP Soundwave rocks. The CCP guests were all interesting and had interesting stuff to say. The commentary team was the best yet (yes, all of them).

The camera coverage of the fights was awesome - I loved the tactical overlay window providing a birdseye view in addition to the usual 3d person ship viewpoint - a great improvement!

Thanks for a successful AT9 CCP - may next year be as good if not better.

Tournament is getting better each year. Great event - great commentators, better camera crew, Quafe, double tournament cat...

I just miss Stevie SG Sad.

awesome job, soundwave you are the only good think about Denmark

Well don't bother making an effort next year - I won't be wasting an entire night on crap like this again.

Thank you!

It takes a huge effort for CCP, volunteers, ISD and of course all the participants.

Lots of matches were great shows and good stuff.

Only tear is that the 5 vs 5 were not broadcasted, maybe that can be changed next year?

Anyway, thanks again.

A few things:

* The stream quality was excellent and it didn't drop out at all this year.

* Hosts were highly entertaining. If I had to choose between watching the matches and watching the studio segments, I'd choose the studio segments! Michael Bolton especially <3 (No homo...well maybe just a little bit.)

* The studio looked fantastic.

* Suits!

Also, to anyone complaining about the final match - EVE is what the players make it, and that's what the EVE players made the final. dealwithit.jpg
