All you need to find is six pilots out of an entire alliance that understand basic PVP and they come up with a guy who burns out his guns like a noob?

Sounds legit to me.

Mr Epeen Cool

I know you like strawman arguments, but you might be interested to note there is a pretty high precedence for this happening in the past. Most notably last year, when RvB crashed out for doing this on their Tengu(s).

I like how everyone is getting all butthurt and suggesting it was a thrown match with no basis at all.
Snake wasn't our primary second Vindi pilot and had reservations about flying it having not put in much practice with that setup. He burnt out his guns, it happens. You should be giving Nulli props for pulling off a win with what is a pretty mediocre setup.

Nulli definitely deserve credit for the most spectacular metagaming of the tournament by convincing one of their members to throw himself in front of a train on the Bakerloo line thus delaying our primary second Vindi pilot, Amantus, as he traveled home.

Froth at the mouth all you want, we're advancing to the next round where I'm sure you'll see many more surprises from us.

Deal with it nerds.

Also, does that even mean anything. Who cares if large sums of money were transferred to people? You would hate to see my wallet if thats all you care about.

People complaining about metagaming in a tournament in a game that has more metagaming in it than anything else...


However usually (in rl) fixed games get punished by those organizing the tournament. However in EVE it results in ... nothing?

Personally i don't rlly care either way, i find those tournaments rather boring.

Of course not. It's an EVE alliance tournament.

With the new rules, they've prohibited competing against yourself and it's up to the referees to determine whether a match is to be considered thrown or not. So far, that judgement has largely been held for pre-arranged matches rather than bribes during a match, though, so it's all a bit fuzzy… Blink

They allow it, they time and time again refuse to fix their mistakes. When goons exploit their mistakes it's against the rules and they take action but when a CCP pet allince or corp exploit the rules it's a game development.

Remove T2BPO fix EVE.

Massive alliances with multi billion ISK ships... and we are force fed 6 vs. 6 with maybe a faction BS and a handful of paper frigates for 2 weekends in a row? And don't even get me started on the EA ads. How does that Sony j!zz taste CCP?

Finally, the douc#e with the captain morgan mustache.... *facepalm*
