    AT XIV Draw and Prizes

    https://community.eveonline.com/news...-draw-results/

      Spoiler:
    Greetings again honorable spaceship warriors. Today, we’ve got some information on what you’ll be fighting for as the prizes for Alliance Tournament XIV, the participants that were picked in the random draw, and which commentators’ soft vocal tones will guide you through this year’s conflict.For those of you just tuning in or new to the game, the Alliance Tournament is an annual competition in which EVE Online player alliances pit their best members in a grand contest to see who the masters of spaceship combat are. Alliances will spend months honing their skills to give themselves the slightest edge in this grueling competition that is played out over three weeks. Some of the most memorable moments in EVE’s history can be found in the Alliance Tournament, with priceless ships being torn apart and turned to ashes, great dynasties falling to an unexpected newcomer, and long standing feuds between rivals played out in nail-biting matches that leave everyone holding their breath right up to the last moment. Any alliance that manages to win this prestigious event will find themselves showered in fame and fortune and rightly respected by all citizens of New Eden.
    This year, Alliance Tournament XIV will be held starting October 1st over the course of three weekends, with the finals taking place on the 16th of October. The action from the first weekend will be broadcast by the wonderful EVE Online volunteers of the Interstellar Services Department (ISD) and other community groups, while weeks two and three will be broadcast live by EVE TV.
    The Blood Soaked Riches

    With Alliance Tournament XII, we introduced a prize structure that had several goals:

    • To provide strong and unique rewards that match the epic levels of passion, training and mastery displayed by our competitors
    • To ensure that teams feel they have a good chance of being rewarded if they put in the effort to field a competitive team
    • To reward the entire alliances behind each team, since in the Alliance Tournament there are often hundreds of players providing support for each team member that you see flying in the matches

    As this structure found great success in AT XII and XIII, we’ll be using it again this year. As for the actual prizes, here’s what you’ll be fighting to claim this year:
    The Alliance Tournament Cup

    The Alliance Tournament Cup is an ingame inventory item of which only one copy may ever exist. Every year we edit the description of the item to reflect the complete list of former tournament winners and move the item to the possession of the most recent winners.
    The Alliance Tournament Cup was given to the Pandemic Legion alliance in the most recent Alliance Tournament XIII, and after the conclusion of Alliance Tournament XIV it will be taken from wherever it resides at that time and given to the AT XIV champions.
    Alliance Tournament Medals

    In previous tournaments, we have given ingame Alliance Tournament Medal inventory items for the teams that places first, second and third in the tournament. The number of medals granted was the same number as the maximum pilots that could be fielded in that tournament. We will be continuing to do this for Alliance Tournament XIV.
    However, like Alliance Tournament XII and XIII, we will also be giving out medals to every character that was a member of the participating alliances on the first day of the tournament. These will appear on the character sheet, exactly like a medal awarded by a corporation. There will be medals for Tournament Competitor, Top 32, Top 16, Top 8, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, and 1st. Each character will receive only the highest medal that their alliance earned.
    Remember, the medals will only be granted to characters in a participating alliance on the first day of the tournament (October 1st).
    PLEX

    As with previous Alliance Tournaments, we will be distributing the PLEX collected as entry fees as prizes in the tournament. If a very large number of PLEX are bid during the secret auction, the number of PLEX awarded may potentially increase.
    This year, the PLEX will be awarded as follows:

    • Teams that place between 17th and 32nd will receive 5 PLEX
    • Teams that place in the top 16 will receive 10 PLEX

    Alliance Tournament Prize Ships

    Ever since the 7th Alliance Tournament, the main prizes each year have been a set of special edition frigates and cruisers, with unmatched combat prowess. Only 50 of each type of frigate or cruiser are given each tournament.
    As with Alliance Tournament XII, this year we will be distributing the special edition prize ships to the top 4 teams, with each team receiving an equal number of cruisers and frigates.

    • 1st place: 25 Cruisers and 25 Frigates
    • 2nd place: 15 Cruisers and 15 Frigates
    • 3rd place: 7 Cruisers and 7 Frigates
    • 4th place: 3 Cruisers and 3 Frigates

    This year, the ships on offer from the Independent Gaming Commission (IGC) are based on Blood Raider ships. Skilled pilots are sure to be able to use the strengths of these ships to drain and defile their enemies. The preliminary ship stats are as follows (and may be subject to change):

    Alliance Tournament Edition Blood Raider SKIN

    As with Alliance Tournament XIII, we will be offering a ship SKIN that can be applied to any of the Blood Raider ships to give them a unique visual style. We will be awarding 10 copies of this SKIN for each series won by a team. This includes the single match series that make up the bulk of the tournament. This should provide an additional incentive to try and win every match you can. Again like last year, these skins will be handed out later than the rest of the prizes at a yet to be determined date.

    Secrets and Auctions

    As the draw has now concluded, we move on to the Secret Auction. Beginning tomorrow, 27th of July after downtime, the remaining teams that were not selected in the draw may have either their Alliance Executor or Team Captain EVEmail CCP Logibro a PLEX bid. The minimum bid is 5 PLEX. The same character that mailed the bid must also place the same number of PLEX in the redeeming system. All bids must be submitted before downtime on the 29th of July. Any bid without the respective number of PLEX in the redeeming system at the close of the auction will be considered invalid.
    Welcome to the AT, I’ll be your Guide

    This year, we have again selected 4 player commentators to help guide you through the tournament.
    Congratulations to those chosen, and a big thank you to those others that applied.
    Rule Updates

    We’ve also made a few changes to the rules since their release.

    1. 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
    2. Heavy Interdictors have increased in points cost by 1 to 13

    The Thunderdome Proving Grounds

    Unlike previous years, we will not be providing support for teams practicing on Singularity or Duality. Instead, we now have a dedicated events server called Thunderdome that will be made available only to participating teams for practice usage. This server is hosted on dedicated hardware rather than Virtual Machines, and will allow teams to practice at their own leisure using the same tournament tool the tournament is run under. More details about server and how practices will work will be coming at a later date, so make sure you keep watching the EVE Alliance Tournament Discussion section
    With rewards like this for those that find glory, we’re excited about the many matches between competing teams as they compete to claim the blood soaked prizes on offer. As always, if you have questions, feel free to head on over to the Alliance Tournament Forum.
    On behalf of the Tournament Team
    -CCP Logibro


    tl;dr

    Starting October 1st over the course of three weekends, with the finals taking place on the 16th of October.

    Prizes are a super cloaking curor with an extra lowslot and a cloaking guardian with a super NOS.

    Teams below got auto buyins because of last years placement:
    End of Life
    Exodus.
    Hard Knocks Citizens
    Pandemic Legion
    Phoebe Freeport Republic
    Shadow Cartel
    Tactical Narcotics Team
    Test Alliance Please Ignore
    The Afterlife.
    THE R0NIN
    The Tuskers Co.
    Triumvirate.

    Only one Unique (AT Prizes) ship can be fielded. HICs have gone up one point.

    Practising teams will (hopefully) get access to the 'Thunderdome' test server.
