    Alliance Tournament XIV - Day 3

    We're now down to the last 24 teams:



    The first 8 matches are in the lower bracket, with the last 4 being the upper bracket matches. We're in the stage of the tournament where every match has the potential to be an amazing match.

    This AT is a bit like the AT where volta won (i think, or the triple vargur teams whos name ive forgotten), if the top 2 (or 1) team is missing it takes a bit of the fun out of it . I just want to see a exodus or tusker vs PL match to see if Pl got last years title by sheer luck of being the last to face hydramel or if they are actually any good. (if you dont know what im talking about, last year the top 2 teams got dqed leaving pl, exodus, tusker and nulli (or someone else cant remember) as the top 4 with pl being crowned the victor - but of those only the 4th place actually met pl in the field, all the others never competed against each other and were all kicked out by hydramel, but due to how the brackets worked pl got kicked out last).

    Mistakes were made:

    1. We were running a comp that we'd never practiced with because "max links".

    2. We didn't have link pilots, so I was thrown into a dps/link ship (which I'd never practiced with - I'd practiced vindi etc etc, but I was 100% the logi pilot)

    3. We originally wanted the HFIs to be BNIs, which got banned. Last minute we threw together the HFIs which were bleh, rather than going with an established comp instead.

    4. I fucked up colossally with the MJD ><

    RIP us.

    We actually prepped pretty hard, and had stuff pretty well planned out ahead of time with plenty of comps and backups planned and ready.

    No idea why we flew absolutely random comps we didn't practice with (technically we did have the rush comp at least sorta tested and typed out to be fair) last 2 matches.

    We definitely should've gone much further, but shit happens and mistakes were made.

    I'm not going to shit up things publically with things I mentioned ahead of time, we'll go much further next year I think.

    didn't say you haven't prepped hard, i said you didn't prep well. at least i don't see how you can have if it falls apart at the fundamental 'what shall we fly?' stage.

    I'd be happy to explain what happened (at least from my perspective) off record. Sadly, that's not really doable over the interwebs - but I'll be at Eve Vegas if you or anyone is around there. vOv

    if it's anything like our first AT run (tuskers), we got ourselves into trouble totally overthinking things once we got to the 'good' opposition. the whole "they banned 'x' to make us take 'y', the counter to 'y' is 'z' and they're a good team so maybe they're really expecting 'z' so we will take 'j'!" double guessing clusterfuck. with experience i guess teams learn to rely more on their own strengths than necessarily counter their opponents.

    btw i have nothing to do with the current run, barely log in. so it's not like i'm in touch with the 'meta' or have a valid opinion on anything :P
