Day one was a success too tired to write much right now.  

 

If you watched, go here and read: http://mangala.rvbga...uk/day-one-mvp/  then pick your MVP for the day. I'll tally the responses in a few days.

 

See y'all tomorrow at 16.00 UTC for Finals Day.

Well, that didn't go so well for C.U.N.T. But I still had a fantastic time dodging war targets,  and flying logi for the first time (albeit very badly - safety off next time!) and I've been enjoying watching back the stream on http://www.twitch.tv...eve/b/536270705. I'd like to say a huge thank you to Mang and anyone involved in the organisation, the commentators, anyone who killed pesky WTs, WTs (yes, even Ace), all the other competitiors and most of all team C.U.N.T. Captain Tamp, Svarrox (sorry you lost your pod), Hanz , Broski the king of kites and not forgetting our MIA compatriot S33k3r.  It was a blast guys, here's to next year!

Here's a sneak-peak view of Vash getting face-checked repeatedly by Thoraxes, while his fleetmate's rep drones are set on someone else, and his own go rep the guy he's shooting.

And here's a fight from my unstreamed camera view, where Y't tanked them all and the team he was in (I'd say his team, but I think he stepped into several to help us out) won out against those with a logi at range.

 

 

I might cut up & otherwise edit some of the other stuff I captured locally for fun snippets & goofs, unless someone tells me YT's doing something terrible to the quality once these process.

 

Edit: seems the ingame effects & textures were at max, but the encoding is causing more 2D compression artifacts than I'd like :(

Thanks Mang and all the organisers, and a VERY special thanks to the pilots of RvB who jumped in to fill holes in teams and ensure they could take the field and the tournament could be the awesome specticle it has been so far!

Amazing ! Honestly, I didn't x up in the past few weeks, because i didn't think i had it. I'm not a good pilot after all.

And yesterday, I got a last minute spot to replace someone in the Rainbow Apocalypse Ponies team, and I helped them get two victories.

Awesome !

Give a man some fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Malus Fenix is our captain, I'm just providing propaganda and reckless flying. He's also the one helping out Yng's team.

RAINBOOOOOWS!

All in all, this event is massively awesome. Thanks to Mang, the commentators and everyone else for making my weekend enjoyable.
Special thanks to a certain Frenchman with skill and quite some balls - you saved our asses (looking at you Yeux). I knew why I asked you.

Can I get some clarification on what the rule regarding the arena boundary is as it seems to be "evolving" a little?

 

Is it now a 100km radius from the mobile tractor unit but you get 30s to rectify if you go outside?

That was a spectacular day yesterday. I'm gutted that I'm at work today and won't be able to see our team through to the end.

 

Thanks to Mang and his team for organising and to the streaming guys for the super-slick presentation.

 

Once again RvB provides the best content in 8ish years of EvE.

It's 100km from the can named Arena Centre. The MTU's near, but not what we were going from & sitting on afaik.

And yes, Mang was giving people 30seconds to get back inside, because it's a smaller scale fight.

 

We had a Maulus blast way past yesterday, and he went to >150 and warped back all within 30secs. We allowed it on the basis that in doing so it wouldn't have broken any locks it hadn't already (except maybe the enemy damp ship), and then died very quickly after landing, so I don't think any next-level damp war flip happened.

 

 

There's my view of that, and you can see Mang say he's using the can as the point to keep within 100km of.

In short: staying outside 100km radius for too long would be disqualification

In theory it was always 100km radius - 200km diameter, however I cannot into mathematical terms and got them reversed....  Took 4 weeks to notice too.

 

And yes, I went with a 30 second FIX IT time as thats usually close to my lock time on stuff :D

Thanks for the clarification. Might be worth adding the 30s majiga to the OP. Keep up the good work boss!

Here's a full fight where we went to Sudden Death, though I'm not sure it went exactly to the rules in the OP. I think Mang wanted to have fun with the reduced arena idea rather than check the points situation. Also Vash's lot did much better here, also seeing off war targets, but I'm still not sure those armour rep drones are doing anything good for them. I think the Hyena was better off when mwding rather than going slow enough for those to rep him. Hopefully there's still time for people to learn & evolve their setups.
