Although plagued by some server issues (caused by elephants in the CCP office apparently), the seventh alliance tournament was a big success so far. We saw a mixed bag of awesomeness with a touch of failsauce the past two weekends.
Shield tanked Sins and Megathrons, hero tengus, nighthawks, a lot of destroyers, bombers that failed and bombers that succeeded and drakes slowly dieing. A lot of ISK turning into spacedust.
I followed the matches through new eden radio and their ingame chat channel, and had a lot of fun. People cracking jokes, commenting on the matches, predicting outcome of the games etc. Well done new eden radio team !
Here is a list of some of my favorite matches:
My absolute favorite from this weekend, and maybe of the tournament so far. A real nailbiter ! Kanagawa in his Hero Tengu takes on 4 battlecruisers.
When the PL setup was announced against 2 nightmares, I thought they’d be pulverised. But PL showed their piloting skills by locking down the opposition with two rooks and let two manticores and brutixes pound on the nightmares. Very well skilled match
A very close match, 2 Kronos and a damnation vs. 5 T3 ships plus an Oneiros.
Two Rattlesnakes beating up a bunch of marauders
A battlecruiser show down. This one shows why battlecruisers were so successful in this tournament so far.
A very exciting match, showing the power assault frigs can have in capable hands
And that’s it. Check out CCP’s youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/ccpgames. Very much looking forward to next week’s final.
