Did someone say kladdkaka?

edit/This is a great update CCP! GOOD WORK!

Now it's time for me to find some teams to sponsor! And with the sponsor slot this makes everything easier. I assume that you when listing teams also will list the sponsor?

You can see a list of teams that have signed up on the tournament sign up page.

This is the plan Smile

Essentially what will happen is that an Alliance executor will submit a petition saying something like, 'Perihilion Alliance will sponsor Team Peri.' Once this happens we will be in touch with the respective Team Captain and once we have agreement from both sides we will then have a contract. In the event that Team Peri win the tournament they will receive the cash prize along with sponsor prizes. The Alliance executor will receive the PLEX.

"people fail"

tbh I like how EvE will be a new player on the e-sports market, next to LoL, Starcraft, maybe GW2, etc.

So far the annual tournaments provided a nice (niche) insight to eve's pvp but mostly for the ingame community,
hopefully this new format will give other people outside of eve a glimps that eve isn't all online spreadsheets.

One question; how will the commentary tackle the lack of pvp knowlegde for the uninitiated ?
Eve rule no.1: The players will make a better version of the game, then CCP initially plans.

That page is still less than stellar. :)

This tournament will be a huge boon to EVE Online.

CCP needs to collaborate with other major media outlet and host more competitions.

Now that sounds a LOT better then before. Thank you for wading through the whines & tears and picking up the useful stuff that made you modify this tournament.

To carve a successful niche for yourself in EVE you need to be able to out sell, out produce, out fight,  out run, or out wit your competitors.
If you can do none of the above, your only option is to complain on the forums that somehow you are at a disadvantage using the exact same tool set as the rest of the player base.

“There are only a select few that are wealthy enough to participate”


I don't know why you're pandering to anyone who actually believes this. Despite having barred faction modules, tournaments in Eve are not typically won by those who cannot put in a significant chunk of isk to finance their team's equipment. If they're poor enough that twenty plex instead of ten was some sort of enormous financial burden (oh no a whole twelve billion isk!) than odds are they'd probably not do well anyway.
