    I do feel like this was honestly PL's strongest team for years, with some top decision making and beating all the teams that made it to the last 4 even with the high profile boundary violations. Its super heartbreaking to be left with the 'What If' of the third match, I imagine for both sides honestly. The PL team will always wonder if they were denied the win, and the Tuskers team will have to deal with the accusation that they 'Won because of DC's.

    My heart says we would have won match 3 but obviously I'm biased. My head doesn't know either way but I definitely feel the DC's hit us harder than they hit Tuskers (scimi)
    Thanks for the kind words. Honestly, I feel that the PL team this year was much stronger than previous years, with much less mistakes in terms of execution. Honestly, it felt like fighting Warlords all over again.

    On the 3rd match, I think we (Tuskers) were slightly ahead at the point the issue occurred - your Scimitar had to ran into us to save your tackle, so it was right on top of Arty Sleipnirs. Unless if you manage to drop the Kitsune immediately afterwards, I think you would have struggled to tackle & kill two Sleipnirs whilst losing locks, whilst being fired upon by our entire comp. Hunting down Orthrii is also never fun and it would have been a real struggle IMO.

    Hydra's influence on this AT ran pretty deep, with ex Hydramel pilots spread across multiple very competitive teams basically everyone had some insight into their lineup and strategies from last year. Whilst it was a boon for some (NC benefited massively this year with their new tournament pickups), It didn't pay off for everyone (Lumpy).
    I think this is a pretty big factor - NC. suddenly got much better this year as did a few other teams. For info, I got some ridicule about not aggressively head hunting the ex-Camel / Hydra guys as we ended up with none.

    And @Suleiman: You keeping that flagship alive for more than five minutes in the semi finals was one of the key points that made you win the whole show. Most awesome 'I can tank that' moment in like forever. Well fucking done.
    Thanks man. Honestly I didn't believe I could survive when I asked how many minutes were left in the match and the reply back was "It's not even been 5 minutes yet". Was pretty tight and really GF to Volta - they pressed us very, very hard.

    Must say the meta this year made for excellent entertainment. Multiple viable strategies and no 'easy' setups made for a whole bunch of close matches where it was too close to call until the last couple of minutes. I doff my cap to Fozzie on that one.

    Congratulations Tuskers! I was hoping that PL went all-in on the last match with some crazy RSI-Flagship+support combo that would have been legit but given the connections issues experienced in match 3 i can't blame them for playing it a bit more safe :/

    PL lost 3 dudes to DC, Tuskers 2 at the same time. Shitty situation. Classic AT scenes though

    :thinking:

    Did CCP admit on stream that the DC was server side? I did not hear it, but some people claim they did.

    IIRC, no. It was essentially "if stuff happens, it happens. This is why it's in the rules."

    Blood Raider SKINs, PLEX, an AT prize logistics cruiser that's like an armor Etana but with Blood Raider neut/nos abilities (future tinker core?) and an AT prize covert ops ships that's... weird.

    What's going on with those SKINs BTW? AFAIK you can apply the Sansha one to any Sansha hull but this year there's like 6 different victory skins in the TQ database.

    The pirate armor logi cruiser is going to be interesting. Consider how powerful the Etana is, then consider that armor cruisers are even more survivable. The only reason we don't see more Etanas from rich teams is because they aren't good at kiting and the Scimi is. But armor is a whole other kettle of fish...

    For some perspective, here is PL point of view:

    We are not in a full counter to their team but basically there was no way we can lose. You kill scimi + sleip + sleip and wreck face from there. [...] I mean I don't know how not to sound salty as hell but we legit should have won the tournament right then and there .
    Here is the full writeup.
