On the weekend of June 7th & June 8th, RvB will be holding our very own tournament. 

 

This tournament will focus on 5 man teams, flying no ships larger than cruisers. A tournament that will play to the strengths of RvB and is entertaining to you all.

 

The victors - and there will be many - will take home a share of around 18-20 BILLION ISK in prizes including ISK, PLEX, Ships & in game medals.

 

 

The details:

The tournament will be a double elimination format much like the NEO II & the SCL. This means that to get knocked out a team needs to lose two matches in the early stages rather than one, and makes for a more interesting format indeed. The tournament will be managed by me using challonge.com.

The finals will feature a best of 3 matches with the teams coming in on the winners bracket allowed to ban one ship type per match.

 

Sign up deadline has now passed (Downtime on 18th May), anyone who signs up now, will be classified as a standby.  If needed I can assign them as a 6th man to a team just so they can be ready to help out if that team has a numbers problem on the day.

 

Yes, you have to be in RvB to take part.

 

 

Schedule:

Current Teams:

Points:
We will be using a points as with the AT, SCL & NEO. This will make for more interesting matches as the points & rules do not allow you to just bring 5 mallers!!!
Teams are responsible for providing their own ships and fittings.
Teams have a maximum of 30 points to invest in the following ships:
 
  • Logistics Cruiser – 13
  • T1 Logistics Cruiser (Augoror, Exequror, Osprey, Scythe) - 10
  • T1 Cruiser – 7
  • Electronic Attack Frigate – 5
  • Pirate Frigate – 4
  • Faction Frigate – 4
  • Assault Frigate – 4
  • Interceptor – 3
  • Destroyer – 3
  • T1 Logistics Frigate (Bantam, Burst, Inquisitor, Navitas) - 4
  • Tech 1 Frigate – 2
  • Tech 1 Industrial Ships (aka Haulers) – 3
Ships not mentioned in this list are not allowed.
 
 
Fittings:
  • Tech 1 & 2 modules are allowed
  • Faction and officer modules are not allowed
  • Tech 1/2 Rigs are allowed
  • ECM target jammers are not allowed
  • ECM target jammer drones are not allowed
  • Only one local repair module per ship
  • Only a logistics cruiser or logistics frigate may use remote repair or capacitor transfer modules
  • All implants are allowed
  • All boosters (drugs) are allowed
  • Faction ammo is fine. Pirate ammo is frowned upon (and will be demanded as tribute to the AT team anyway if you use it).
  • Faction drones are fine. Augmented drones are frowned upon (and will be demanded as tribute to the AT team anyway if you use them).
  • NO smartbombs
  • Boosting via command ships or tech 3's is not allowed
  • NO Deployables. Only I will have one out, and thats an MTU.
 
 
Rules:
  • Teams will field a maximum of 5 pilots.
  • A MAXIMUM of 3 of the same ship types are allowed per setup. Example 3 x caracal 1x burst 1x random frig is fine; 4 caracal 1 x condor would be bad. This includes skinned ships.
  • Only one T2 logistics cruiser OR T1 logistics cruiser OR T1 logistics frigate per team.
  • The arena will be have a diameter of 200km (so a radius of 100km). Leaving this arena bubble will mean disqualification if you do not rectify this within 30 seconds.
  • Teams will be allowed to warp to the arena before the match starts. However only at a range between 0km & 50km.
  • NO podding - do so and your team will be disqualified.
  • NO warping in the arena.
  • NO prelocking the other team. Only lock them once the match countdown has started. 
  • Matches to last 10 minutes. No more. (In the event of a tie, an extra 3 minutes sudden death combat will be added and the arena will reduce by 50km. First side to kill a ship wins the match).
  • If a team is more than 2 minutes late to a match, it automatically forfeits that match.
  • Team that goes into the Finals as the Victor of Match N, will be allowed to issue 1 ship ban per the final "Best of 3".
 
 
 
Location:
Will be held on TQ. Will be held in Nomaa.
We will use arenas that I will setup. Spectators will be allowed, however they will have to show up in shuttles, so as not to clutter the overviews of the participants.
 
 
Streams:
Commentators to include Catalyst XI, Sir Squeebles, Dantesi, Apothne, Mizhir, Connall Tara and Thecla Elarik
Streams to be run by commentators, and other additional parties.
 
 
Prizes:

First Place Team:

750 Million ISK per pilot

1 PLEX per pilot

1 Navy BS per pilot (of pilots choice)

In game medal

 

Second Place Team:

500 Million ISK per pilot

1 Navy BC per pilot (of pilots choice)

In game medal

 

Third Place Team:

250 Million ISK per pilot

1 Navy Cruiser per pilot (of pilots choice)

In game medal

 

Tournament MVP (Voted for by myself & the commentary team):

1 PLEX

2 Pirate Cruisers of pilots choice

 

Pilot of the Day: Day One (Voted by the spectators)

Navy BC of pilots choice

 

Pilot of the Day: Day Two (Voted by the spectators)

Navy BC of pilots choice

 

Bottom of the barrel (Team that is knocked out with least points earned overall):

1 Pirate newbship per pilot (of pilots choice)

 

Participation medals for all pilots who fly in the tournament will be awarded too.

 
I am open to further donations from anyone who wants their name in lights or just wants to help make this the biggest event of 2014 that is not an RvB birthday event!
 
 
Notes:
I'll be banging the drum for folks to help me out as arena judges and the like in the day or two before the event. So if you somehow do not get on to a team, you may well be able to participate in another way.
All spectators will need to have a combat vessel in system on the weekend in case we need to deal with war targets, or idiots wanting to crash our party.

Also, I'll captain a team if the need exists, but give RvB vets priority please.

"The caspuleer in his spaceship can focus only on the present instant of his flight; he is caught in a fragment of time cut off from both the past and the future; he is wrenched from the continuity of time . . . in other words, he is in a state of ecstasy; in that state he is unaware of his age, his wife, his children, his worries, and so he has no fear, because the source of fear is in the future, and a capsuleer freed of the future has nothing to fear.''

Thanks for letting me know this.  I was planning on starting pre that time, however it would still be the first round at this point so I can just ensure that whatever team you are in has its first fight after that time.  

 

Obviously if we do not get many many entrants - and after a day we have quite a few so thats a positive start - then timing would shift to later anyway.

Additionally, keep slinging those x's in guys, lots of sign up time left - like 2 weeks!  The more the merrier, tell your mates!
