Syndicate Competitive League: Weekend 2

First post

Weekend two of the Syndicate Competitive League starts Saturday, April 6th at 1700 GMT with a second day of matches Sunday, April 7th at 1700 GMT on the SCL channel. We are back with a full bracket of eight exciting teams, an improved format and even more content. The SCL staff is excited to bring you a thrilling weekend of Eve Online PvP and wants you to join us as we bring you a unique entertainment experience only internet spaceships can provide.

This weekend's team line-up is spectacular. Not only do we have several returning teams, but we also have a round of teams new to the Syndicate Competitive League. Make no mistake. Just because these teams are new to the SCL, it doesn't mean they are strangers to the Eve Online tournament scene. This weekend's contenders are:
  • Reputation Cartel - Bob Shaftoes
  • Insurance Fraud - Fafer
  • TEST Alliance Please Ignore - Dukrat
  • My little Nulli - Cas Mania
  • Guiding Hand Social Club - Tyrrax Thorrk
  • Pandemic Legion - Gobbins
  • Perihelion - IceGuerilla
  • Last Huzzah - Ryans Revenge

Format Changes
We made several updates to the Syndicate Competitive League format to enhance the tournament. The second day of matches ran longer than we liked and it caused many of our viewers to miss out on the live action. The length of the second day was also difficult on our production staff including the gracious and talented CCP Fozzie who volunteered his time to assist with the event. To compensate we've switched from double elimination to single elimination. To compensate for the difference in number of matches, we've changed the final matches to best of five. We've also increased the team roster from 8 to 16 to enable teams to field A and B teams for practices.

The SCL staff had a great time hanging out with our viewers between the matches in the in-game and channels, but it's not really the content we think you should have. You deserve better and we want you to get most out of your time viewing the Syndicate Competitive League. In addition to the match commentary, the SCL is bringing you studio commentary. Between matches our studio host will bring you interviews with CCP developers, community leaders, team captains and contests.

This weekend we have a full slate of CCP developers to come and talk about everything from the DUST514 connection and Odyssey to the CSM 8 elections and Fanfest. Threads will be posted in the Eve Alliance Tournament Discussion thread so you can have your questions answered by the devs on air. You will not want to miss this weekend as we pull out all the stops to bring you a weekend full of Eve Online entertainment.

The second weekend of the Syndicate Competitive League will be bigger and better. We look forward to you joining us for another fantastic weekend of PvP.

Been looking forward to this for a while. We have some new voices to add to the roster this time as well as those of us returning, and hopefully this time is even better than last time around!

This will be awesome weekend, the SCL Team

and CCP have done great work for the first SCL event, and now they even did better with improvements such as between the matches content, including commentaries and interviews with CCP devs!

Please have the content published along with the actual fights.

I wish good entertainment to everyone, and also good luck to my competitors, they will need it Big smile

0 risk pvp arenas. sneaky sneaky. wasn't even on the feature list /sarcasm

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Crazy upset on the first match, looks like most people were expecting Nulli to win. Congrats to those who stuck with GHSC and went home with ~4x payout odds Shocked!

Monocle Madness has betting open for the 2n match of the day: Last Huzzah vs Pandemic Legion! Bet on both the overall winner of the match and on the winner of individual rounds. All over here.

Great commentators, both matches and studio! Nice to hear about Stuff and Things from the CCP devs :p.

Last Match of the Day:

Test Alliance Please Ignore vs The Reputation Cartel

Double your fun by betting on your favourite team!

We also have a side-pool: Will luckyccs (Reputation Cartel) die in a fire and eat vacuum? He has 2-3 rounds to survive, bet on what you think will happen to win ISK!

Why are all the matches starting late?

It's one thing for people who know what's supposed to be happening but for anyone coming to this from fresh they will have switched off before the match starts.
