Typical of the cold, merciless Caldari mindset. Our mercenary ground forces are much more precise than that, but it'll probably cost you more. Twisted

I'd be interested in getting Capsuleer opinion on this option included the Dust side event thread:

Add EVE side betting.

This one is more complicated and must include one of the tournaments, but we've got a few people in the community I know might be able to pull this off.

I think if we could allow the Eve side guys to bet on the outcomes for matchs it could really peak interest and draw some big publicity to Dust and even New Eden as a whole. (Think superbowl or FIFA World Cup with people shooting each other).

This would also have to be kept clearly separate from the charity option if that shows interest as well.

*DISCLAIMER* all betting would be with ISK.

NO AUR, MERC CODES, OR ANY REAL CURRENCY would be allow to be used to make bets.

2nd Place: 1 Merc Pack


I'll see about adding some special prizes for most warpoints, most kills, etc.


**************

Best Dust-side footage of Orbital Bombardments (may also include ground fighting, but again, I'm looking mainly for Orbtial Bombardment Footage) during the tournament or Dust OB events will be given 1 Merc Pack and a Dust 514 T-shirt!


The best footage that is submitted that shows the same Orbital Strike from space and the ground (this footage will also be more likely to win Best footage award) will be eligible for the following prizes:

-For the Eve side footage of the strike: 1 PLEX

-For the Dust side footage of the strike: 1 Gurista Saga Pack

***************

Additional EVE-side Prize


The pilot with the most confirmed kills over the course of the tournament will receive 1 PLEX.

Hey guys. We're going to have something a little different today. A lot of corps have battles scheduled for their Round-Robin matches. Today is your chance to come to the "Dust OB" channel and coordinate directly with the Dusters.

Videos recorded of Orbital Strikes today and submitted to NewEdenSports@gmail.com using https://www.wetransfer.com/ will be eligible for the grand prize for the recording contest that includes a PLEX and official Dust 514 T-shirt from CCP's office in Shanghai.

A reminder the Eve pilot with the most confirmed kills during the Double Elimination phase of the tourney will be eligible for a PLEX as well!

We have continued to be there for our ground teams and have on multiple occasions fought off pirates and war targets in space above the planet successfully while still providing OB to forces on the ground. While it continues to be a great rush for us we have some problems with what the tournament organizer is doing. We waited until we were out of the tournament to discuss this because we did not want to raise issues while we were in the tournament.

We will no longer be taking part in tournaments where the tournament operator is more interested in media splash and in his boredom continues demand battles in warzones of HIS choosing and then blows operational security by broadcasting to all of EVE where the battles will take place. We will not be taking part or risking our fleets or ground forces because some dude risking nothing and running a tournament gets bored and wants an "audience" for his amusement.

Also anyone who uses the DUST OB channel... we will be watching and waiting to kill ships above tournament areas and Infantry on the ground, I would recommend not using it unless you like getting "blapped" .



DUST2EVE channel is a great place to get your DUST & EVE related questions answered and find targets!

While the systems for the tourney have been announced to allow pilots interested in participating in the events to plan for the occasion, separate faction channels have been created to help increase operational security. Specific planet and district information are being kept to those channels. Pilots should still be cautious when discussing fleet movements though.

Also, since the channel and relationship between the Capsuleers and Dusters has matured I have not been announcing general contracts publicly and expect Dusters to reach out to Capsuleers themselves to arrange for secure orbital support. The Dust OB channel serves as a mixer to facilitate that interaction. Unfortunately, right now there is no way for a Duster to guarantee that he is talking to a pilot of the right faction and that is one the reasons the faction specific channels have been created and are moderated.

I find in unfortunate that you would chose to lash out at the Dust and Eve Online community due to your frustrations over your loss in the tourney. I also find it surprising that you would publicly announce your desire to attack members aligned with HBC and ROFL alliance who will be participating in the finals. The tournament was established to spur interest in Eve for Dust and the over 4 Billion ISK in the tourney betting pool shows that there is a definite interest.

It is up to each pilot to weigh the risks of whether or not to engage in the OB events and to always remember that these engagements take place in low security space. Join the Dust OB channel today and ask questions about how OBs work and talk to Dusters to see how things work on their end. Numerous business relationships have been established through the Dust OB channel and the next one could be yours.

Please check out the most recent tutorial video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQwqINItxPg

Thanks again to everyone who has participated so far in the "Dust OB" events.

Kane I am not going to get into a flame war with you and you make statements which show you are missing a great deal of what was said.

We are an alliance, OSG is a member of the alliance. Our alliance is not in your tournament, but OSG is. If OSG or any other DUST corp in our alliance requests OB support we deliver and we have been doing it just fine including within your tourney and we go in hoping for more than just an OB.

http://covertintervention.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=3571 <--- This was during one of the tourney fights and we still delivered the OBs requested on target.

Our alliance like any other good alliance has internal channels supporting our fellow members. We are advising against anyone using the channels you put up... Which we noticed are also vain attempts to advertise and find recruits. Besides... most of the militias already have Highly successful OB channels they should be using, your channels are just a massive leak.

We recommend If a DUST only corp wants OB support, they should privately set that up with a trusted EVE corp or join an alliance with pilots willing to help them... if they use your public Faction Channels they are screwed once everyone figures out what you are doing.

But you have been mentioning contracts publicly. Just. Stop. Doing. It.

You over reach here, and show how little you know. We aren't lashing out and you certainly don't represent the EVE and DUST community at large so please stop pretending to represent everyone. It is a strawman tactic and in this case a poor one.

We specifically waited until our member corp was out of the tournament to make our concerns known of your operating practices. Our Alliance and OSG have been nothing but classy about the whole tournament and we love the fights over the planets on the planets and on our way to the planets. OSG has publicly stated this tournament has forced them to raise their game and improve Their humility and class is one of the reasons they fit in well with the alliance. We will publicly state it has enhanced our own SOP for various tactics to provide OB in hostile space.

Many of our us have of real life friends in HBC and ROFL, some of which are taking part in the tournament as well. I just spoke to one of them today on the phone. We wish them all well and encourage them to continue to work within the tournament they have done well at. So please stop eve-mailing our members making ridiculous statements regarding war threats on HBC or ROFL, it just shows lack of context on your part.

That being said we warned you regarding the information leaks... keep running tournaments like this and see what happens when no one wants to show up because a neutral fleet is going to be waiting for them or worse.

If we had raised the same concerns during the tournament what would your reaction have been? Would you accuse us of lashing out against EVE? or give the same spiel used below on "its up to the pilots to weigh the risks" and then accuse of lashing out against DUST & EVE? in either case... based on your reaction I am only more concerned.

We expressed what our issues are, which is you publicly stating or leaking information which under other circumstances neutral or hostile groups which have nothing to do with the tournament would be unlikely to have either in channels, forum posts, or other publicly accessible locations. We find this risk unnecessary and based on what we have seen thus far you are using it for either your own amusement or boredom, because it doesn't have a purpose serving the tournament itself.

We also bring it up because we also noticed you have a lot less skin in the game than the pilots do for your tournament.

I dont see ROFL or HBC needing those channels any more than any other good alliance so why use them. If a corp needs help that badly we recommend joining an alliance with capsuleers to ensure you get support.

You are welcome to show up to the Tourney system on Saturday and try to engage targets in orbit. As I said in my mail to you, I hope you do.

The channels have been primarily established for new players who have no idea how to OB. They learn the ropes and then move on to more formal lines of communication. The channel is a mixer for Dusters and Eve pilots and helps put them in touch with alliances, militias, and individuals interested in exploring the links between Eve and Dust.

These events have also been run to provide feedback and testing to improve the game and numerous people have been involved with testing orbital strikes since December.

The OB events are a party that everyone is invited to, so show up and have some fun shooting stuff, and, for Saturday, try to get a billion ISK.

Is this all vain advertising? Absolutely. It's not for myself though. Our corporation doesn't really need any advertising. My main goal is to bring as much attention to Dust 514 as I can through these events and shout from the rooftops regarding the primary direct interaction we have between the games, which right now is Orbital Bombardments. I'm not sure I really see a point to your posts, especially since these are your first posts ever on the forums. If you don't want to use the channels you don't have to. I'm not really sure why you would want to try and prevent people from learning as much as they can about the Eve/Dust interaction.

Running OB events is also open to anyone. If you would like to run an event including picking the system, Jon, let me know and I'll get you set up. I'm sure it would be a great opportunity for you to show your alliance off to the Dust community and have some fun.
