Hello there Eve Radiophiles! I am tankus2, and I am here to tell you lot about an upcoming Frigate Tourney!


What's up for grabs? A pot starting at 800 mil isk for starters, with the winners taking home two rigged Rooks with half of the pot. If our goal of 18 players is reached, the top prize will gain a Zealot (unrigged) on top of the previous prize pool!

For now, the prize pool is as follows:
first: x2 Rooks, 400 mil isk.
second: 200 mil isk.
third: 100 mil isk.
forth: 50 mil isk.
Most unique team set-up: +25 mil isk.
Most unique ship set up: +25 mil isk.

Last two winners are chosen by the DJ, who can be influenced by public opinion


What's the tourney? A frigate 2v2, Red Rover style where teams of 3-5 assemble up to duke it out! This does mean that each team has more than 2 participants (unless only six show up, sigh). However, if the 18 player goal is met, we'll bump it up to 3v3s for more fun!

Fighting is simple; the last team standing wins! On a per-battle basis, the team with at least one pilot still flying is the victor. Members of the winning team may reship and/or repair, though each ship is a one-shot deal (so a guy who trades his incursis for a griffin can't fly the incursis again). Losers are knocked out of the battle entirely. Warping away from the fight is a forfeit.


!!!Rules of Engagement!!!
participating players will use the dueling mechanic against each-other. Of a 2v2 consisting of player A and B vs X and Y, Player A duels X and Y, B does likewise. Player X duels A and B, and Y likewise.

Once all are ready to fight, they make sure they are 38-42km from each-other and about 20km from the DJ. After then, it's a DJ-countdown to the fight proper!


Penalties may be handed out to the losers as follows;
-prizes will be withheld until after the final; encourages pilots to play nice and watch.
-external aid will be dealt with accordingly.
-the DJ is the boss

Should a team consist of an odd number of players, the remaining teams may agree on what pilot(s) that was/were previously knocked out can return. The DJ has final approval on this matter, or can simply go over everyone's head and choose for us all. Her call.


M'kay, how do I sign up (and what can I fly)? Evemail me (tankus2) at least two frigate fits.

First thing is that the frigate fits are tech one ONLY. No meta modules, no faction/deadspace/officer/t2/named/whateverelseImaybemissing. Implants and boosters are fine. Also standard ammunition, so the only way you can truly triumph over your foes is to work together and play against their weaknesses.

Second thing is to make sure you have spank over tank, no one wants to watch two guys smack each-other with 75mm rails for pennies in damage while their tank can absorb dollars. I will let you guys know as soon as I can if a fit is too tanky so we can get a nice, powerful fit that sticks to your playstyle while still giving the opposition a chance at killing you.

Third, each team gets access to every non-exploration, non-faction t1 frigate, though only one of each. On a per-pilot basis, each pilot can receive up to three frigates. This means that each team will get one slasher, one incursis, one bantam, etc. Once that ship is gone, there is no replacing THAT SHIP, though the pilot (provided his team won) can return in a back-up ship. Teams may also share replacement frigates, just in case.

Fourth, ewar and RR are perfectly fine, as long as they are on the 2-3 ships involved and are used against the opposing 2-3 ships.

The final note: Registration has already begun, and will continue until March twenty-third (23), 23:55 eve time. After then, all the players should make their way to the target system, or be prepared to. Once the show starts we will begin RIGHT THEN, NO EXCEPTIONS. There is only two hours of air time, and I'd rather it be done early than to go over.


So... Where is this at? link up the system 'Tekaima' and you are good to go. This is CONCORD space, so unless you are on bad terms with them you can go regardless of your -10 status with a faction. Fighting starts at 18:00 eve time on the 24th of March.


What about betting? Good question. I'd ask for the tourney players to not bet themselves (so they can focus), and I will NOT be handling any betting. Any isk donation to me for whatever reason other than for registration will just be added into the pot.


Any further questions should be sent here in this forum, though I'll accept Evemails.

Later dolts!

hello, i want to join the tourney with a friend and i have some questions.

1. is it fine for me to enter with 2 pilots per team or do i need 3 pilots per team? kinda confused here.

2. when i read up this part, i dont quite understand it.

"Third, each team gets access to every non-exploration, non-faction t1 frigate, though only one of each. On a per-pilot basis, each pilot can receive up to three frigates.

2.a) what i understand is, i can use ships like slasher, incursus, bantam, merlin but for only one per ship type per pilot? for example if im using incursus my friend isnt allowed to use it?

2.b) and when my incursus is lost, i cannot return in incursus even if my partner won? meaning i can come back with another ship like condor provided condor has not been used by my partner is it?

thats all for now, please enlighten me, looking forward for the tourney.


Firstly, I hope you don't hunt me down for copy-pasting a message, as you do bring up excellent points.

First Point: you can bring in as many pilots on a team as you could possibly want, just be aware that you may have to cut some out once the fighting begins if other teams do not have the same numbers as you. Given DJ blessings, they may end up in opposing teams.
We would like each team to have at least two chances to fight before being knocked out completely, so for the 2v2s the optimal number would be 4 per team. The more, the merrier.

Second Point: Each team has the same pool of frigates to pull from. That means any pilot can fly any ship, but there can only be ONE ship of a given hull. So no, if you are flying an incursus, your friends can't, and if its gone, its gone. But you can return in a condor if your partner(s) are not using one.
I should note that each team can have the same hull, so team A could have an incursus along with team L and team S, for example. Though if they lose their incursus, it is gone!

heh, I should have written something here earlier, but the previous tourney worked out well despite only four contestants showing up!

next date for the fight is TBA, but you can bet it will be at the 18:00 timeslot on sundays when it does pop up!
