It’s that time of year again.

Eve Fifth Alliance Tournament

Alas, I’m not in alliance that will be participating. This year promises to be entertaining to watch the magic exploding ships as well as the commentary and shenanigans. It will be broadcast again for free off the eve-online site. The online TV provider from last year returns again this year, which should guarantee a flawless and high resolution experience. Last year brought a lot of upsets (Band of Brothers and Mercenary Coalition getting spanked or DQed) and a lot of interesting tactics. The main ones that stick out in my mind were massive Ishtar drone swarms, ECM sillyness, remote repping bonanzas, and Thoraxes of fury.

There’s a lot of preparation, tactics, skill training, ship build discussion, and coordination that would rival a military operation.

To the winner goes bragging rights, some in game fame, and a whole bunch of loyalty points with a faction of the winner’s choosing.

This year introduces new ship types such as the Electronic Attack Frig, Maurader, Heavy Interdictor, and Black Ops Battleship. Expect a whole lot of EAF’s rocking the ewar and maybe even a few comedy Mauraders in the mix as high value targets. The game has truly changed.

Good luck to all the participants!

One of my favorite parts was the local chat thread where Derek Knows Us banters with the Eve TV cameras and the GMs:
