EVE Online: 5th Alliance Tournament E-mail
Monday, 25 February 2008
The 5th EVE Online Alliance Tournament has been announced and the bravest capsuleers have once again been called to battle for fame, honour and fortune.
16 matches will be hosted per day and streamed from CCP's studio in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is a multi-stage championship, similar to the FIFA World Cup. The 40 teams are divided into 8 groups, with the two victors from each group progressing to a knockout phase compromised of four single-elimination rounds. A firm winner will be determined after this elimination round.

Here are the rules:
  1. This is a bracket tournament with eight brackets, five teams in each bracket, for a total number of 40 teams.
  2. Two teams with the highest points scored in each bracket advance to the elimination rounds.
  3. Alliances can field up to ten pilots on the battlefield. The team captain has to be announced beforehand. Any alliance member can fight at any time.
  4. Alliances will be allowed entry on a first-come first-serve basis.
  5. A pilot cannot compete on behalf of more than one alliance at a time.
  6. All competing pilots must be members of the alliance they are competing at the time they fight.
  7. Fights are limited to 15 minutes in the first round. After that the fight will be stopped and whichever alliance has destroyed ships with a higher number of total point worth will be declared winner. See, "Winning a match in the group stage" for more details.
  8. In the elimination rounds, fights will be stopped after 20 minutes if both teams still have ships on the battlefield. The winners will be declared based on the following:
    8.1. The team with the higher number of total point worth of opponents ships destroyed, wins.
    8.2. If both teams have destroyed equal amounts total point worth, the team which advanced from the brackets with a higher total score will advance.
  9. Intentional podkilling is NOT allowed. Accidental podkills will be reimbursed and no penalties incurred.

Entry fee
Entry fee is one billion ISK. The fee is returned once the group stage is finished and the team has participated in all of its scheduled fights.

Place and Tactics
  1. Teams are brought to a star system in uncharted space and designated as Team 1 and Team 2.
  2. There are eight beacons in the system, which serve as start off points. Four beacons are marked for Team 1 and four marked for Team 2. The teams must assemble at any of the four beacons designated for their team.
  3. Once the word is given, teams warp in to the arena from whichever beacon they assembled, at a range they prefer, up to a maximum of 50 km. Team members are allowed to warp in at different ranges.
  4. The arena will measure a 125 km radius.
  5. After the teams have warped in to the arena, they will wait for EVETV clearance to begin the fight. This is to allow time to set up the cameras.
  6. When EVETV is ready, the host sets of a powerful ECM burst and warps off. This signals the start of the fight.
  7. If a player warps out/leaves the arena, His/her ship will be destroyed.
  8. Warping within the arena is not allowed.
  9. Dropping secure or insecure cargo containers is not allowed. Dropping regular jettison containers is allowed.
