I just wanted to post my views on how our first alliance tournament went.

Our first match against Probable Cause was unfortunate.
we are a small alliance of 33 members and due to real life cirstumstances, 3 people were unable to attend the first match.
of course we only found this out about 30 minutes before the match so we had to reinvent our setup. changing it from 9 pilots to 6.
We tried but with the loss of the E-war the 3 other pilots would have fielded, we were simply no match for the E-war they had on the field.

The second match against KIA we did everything possible to ensure we had enough pilots for our match.
It worked we were able to field what we wanted and we won a total hell death victory over KIA, a known tourny alliance that in the past made it as far as the semi's (i think) so for us that felt like winning the whole damn tournament. haha Cool

Alot of things the commentators said during that match were totally inaccurate. we had 4 dampeners on the field in total.
So KIA was never completely damped.
And the domi's were giving cap to the abaddons, not the other way around.
Their damps had almost no affect at all on us because the domi's were remote sensor boosting and since they only locked the abaddons next to them dampeners from kia on them had no affect. my abaddon lost lock a few times,but never for a long time.
and because none of us got killed, the E-war by kia got less and less with their ships dying.

I am not saying that if we had been able to field our setup in the first match we would have won, but i think we would have had a better chance and might have gotten the points we needed, but that's life.

I wanna thank my alliance m8's for enduring my continuing nagging about getting on the test server to test my setup ideas. i wanna thank them for their input on the setups and the commitment to coming to matches (usa guys were getting up at 4 am in the morning to attend). And i want to thank them for the awesome job they did in our match against KIA.
well done lads! you made me proud!!! Very Happy

I think with beating KIA we proved that small alliances do have a place in this tournament. with a good setup and decent skilled pilots you can beat the larger richer and higher skilled (point wise Laughing ) alliances.

see you all at the next one!!

Phel out!

I was really proud of the way you guys pulled through, and it was so good to see you in the tourney after we talked about going for it a year ago ^__^

We didn't get a chance to play you guys but I watched your matches :)
I'd also like to say I think the inclusion of the Factional Warfare teams this year was a step in the right direction.

Good going man!

I had similar no shows so I know about last minute changes, or reversal in my case. Hope to see you next year.

Reserving space to post my thoughts about our first fight against atrocitas later.

We enjoyed it - but given the tourney format we could have played it differently. Will explain later Laughing

The commentators should have the numbers total of the alliance fighting and taking that into account. You can see at times that teams have to go with what they have and not what they wanted based on low numbers and lack of expertise in the field needed.

What possible other excuse can there be for fielding tech I sentry drones?

We'll probably do a writeup once we get bounced. It's been an experience for sure.
