Hey guys

Here is the place to discuss the changes we've made to the rules for AT XIV since the release of the original rules.

So far, these are the changes:

Quote:
Teams may field no more than one unique special edition ship at any given time.

The current list of unique special edition ships includes: Apocalypse Imperial Issue, Armageddon Imperial Issue, Megathron Federate Issue, Raven State Issue, Tempest Tribal Issue, Guardian-Vexor, Mimir, Adrestia, Vangel, Etana, Moracha, Chameleon, Fiend, Rabisu, Stratios Emergency Responder, Gold Magnate, Silver Magnate, Freki, Utu, Malice, Cambion, Chremoas, Whiptail, Imp, Caedes

Quote:
Heavy Interdictors have increased in points cost by 1 to 13

Current ruleset: https://community.eveonline.com/community/alliance-tournament/rules/

We don't currently foresee the need to make any other rules changes, but we of course reserve the right to do so if needed.

I also want to make sure everyone is aware that there will be two monthly EVE releases between now and the tournament start, and another release in between the 2nd and 3rd weekend (on October 11th). There likely will be some changes to EVE ships in some of these releases, so teams are advised to stay flexible in the specifics of their tactics.

One other clarification to make: Cosmetic variations of ships (such as the Rattlesnake Victory Edition) will be counted as their base ship and cannot be used to bypass hull limits or bans.

Will these changes include warfare link mechanics? If so, it would be pretty important to have that information early so we can at least simulate the behaviour in testing.

I would take this to mean no more that 1 special edition ship feilded by a team at a time. Ie a malice and etana would not be legal only one or the other

just wondering if that unique-word is part of the special edition term, or if UNIQUE special edition ships have a hardcap of 1/comp

It means that you can have just one of any of the listed ships in any given comp.

For instance:
2x Malice isn't allowed
Etana+Fiend also isn't allowed

I think EW scripts like dampeners & tracking disruptors must be allowed this year, as sensor booster mechanics changed. Banning scripts for EW modules will make tournament too primitive in my opinion.

If a flag ship is a "unique ship" can you still field another unique since the flag is the flag?

Example - Imperial Navy Apoc + Malice

or does it not matter if the flag is an unique?


Also how many pts are the ships like the Imperial Apoc / Tribal Tempest?

Are they 21 pts like faction ships? or 19 pts like navy ships?

The flagship doesn't allow you to bypass limits on numbers of any ship type, so no a Imperial Navy Apoc + Malice would not be allowed.

The unique battleships are produced by the four empires so they count as navy faction battleships: 19 points.

Great that CCP is giving people a heads up on things like this, though could you maybe try not to land ship changes directly in the middle of the tournament? As a spectator it's generally just not as much fun to watch when everyone is scrambling to adapt to something. That's not to say that it can't make for fun moments, but more often than not IMO it doesn't.

I personally think the playerbase would understand if ship changes were pushed off into a point release so they don't interfere with the AT, and I believe CCP has done something similar in the past as well.

No, over-full modules will not be allowed this year.

Benefits for the game as a whole always need to be higher priority than clearing the schedule around the tournament. The good news is that as always any game balance changes will impact all teams evenly, so the teams that prove to be the smartest will adjust faster and come out on top.

Fair enough, thanks for the response!

Looking forward to both the tournament and incoming balance changes! (In before someone fields a team of Exhumers xD)

Truestory: we don't allow Exhumers in the tournament because we're afraid someone would actually bring battleskiffs and tank for days.
