I must admit I was disappointed to see the final be a rigged fight.
However reading the effort that went into making that fight actually happen makes it a much better victory and a much deserved win.
These are the stories that make Eve. Well done Hydra and Outbreak pilots.
This is amazing. I can't even imagine the level of tourney expertise we could pull off if there were 4 "winning spots" and Raivi and other PL people with massive experience at putting in immense amounts of effort worked together with you guys
Great tourney synopsis. Reading about spying is always good, as I'm sure you'll remember from Raivi's last year write-up
Missed Raivi's write-up last year, any links?Originally Posted by The Monkeysphere
The amount of spying and metagaming... never though that much could happen for single tourney
After reading all that, don't care that much about the fixed final
Well played and a most excellent write-up!
faggot damage control is succesful.

Here's some of Raivi's last-year spying reports.
So proud (and yet mildly bitter)
It's actually for good that final battle ended the way it ended. It put your strategy, buildup and preparation into well deserved spotlight.
I especially loved how you fucked up goons (PL B team)
Aye exactly. Unless you're dense (i.e. most Eve-O forum patrons) it actually makes you wonder what went on to reach that conclusion, and Duncan's post nicely satiates that interest.Originally Posted by Pelias
Nice writeup. Seems you were totally focused on nullifying PL. Did you do any intel gathering on other opponents? Or did you consider PL to be the only real opposition?
The bulk of our intel was on PL but we had data on most of the possible opposition (with the exception of Darkside).Originally Posted by McKinlay
All I can say: 'Welcome to the Sandbox.'
You guys made the next GHSC-level story.
I welcome the next 50k sub caused by the AT9-heist.
Worst best Alliance Tourny!!
well played boys.
You are truly obsessed bordering on insane....and I salute you for it. Well played.
Good stuff, pity the final battle wasnt really indicative of all the time and effort that went into getting there.
Alright, well it seems you put a lot of effort into it. However I wonder why you didn't have the courage to just play it out normally without the match-fixing? To me there seems a distinction between spying on people to learn their setups (after all, what are cov-ops ships for), and actually arranging with teams to fix matches.
This may be a bit of weird analogy, but it reminds me of Dick Dastardly in the Wacky Races cartoon. He's easily got the fastest car, but he wastes his time on stupid traps that blow up in his face and he loses. You have the skill and the dedication to practice hard, come up with solid setups and apply that practice in the matches. Yet you feel that's not good enough and you have to manipulate the result more directly, and in doing so make the whole thing look a bit stupid at the final, and embarass CCP etc.
Wouldn't a legitimate win have been more satisfying than this? Or do you not care and want the prizes? I dunno, food for thought.
we in no way intended the final to look stupid or fake... the whole problem was that we tried and it back-fired
