Captain : Garmon

According to Team Captain Garmon:

“Hydra is an alliance that wins every tournament we enter. So far we won 5 tournaments (AT9, FanFest tournament 2012 + 2013, SCL 1 + 3). In AT8 we finish number 2 but it doesn't count because we had PL spy called Gobbin (every1 beware don’t let him onto ur team) and NEO doesn't count because darkside is cursed to never win anything and they were on team (haart so dum why would u put them on ur team lol) also thats why they live in curse region because they have 1 lol”

TMC> What is the greatest strength of the team?

Garmon > Our greatest strength is that we have no competition at all. everyone in the tournament is either completely overwhelmingly retarded or are completely overrated and predictable + we have the best battlecry.

TMC>  What is the greatest weakness of the team?

Garmon > overthinking and giving retards too much credit

TMC>  What teams would you like to face in ATXI?

Garmon > 0utbreak - Got us banned from last tournament fuck those guys

Verge of Collapse - Easy bracket in AT10, luckers had HUN link go offline in final, possible hackers but I don't have proof, won’t sell us Etana those diks in return we poached knifee and edenmain lol owned no00obs

Rote Kapelle - So they can post about how they lost in that terrible failheap syndicate thread and talk more about 10 thoraxes endlessly, poached brent for tests but he doesn't shut up ever christ (possible spy)

Pandemic Legion - All they do is lose now so would be good to have an easy match where enemy doesnt move

TMC> What team would you like to see stumble and fail?

Garmon > No Holes Barred - They keep tryin to mess with our wormholes and we just want to make isk to be ready for battles vs any enemy that are against us pls if any wormhole ally want 2 help defend against this griefers and make a blue pact so we can fight NPC in peace then pls contact xXxDrAgOnWrAiThxXx1996, you can call him timothy.

TMC> Any remaining comments?

Garmon > We r making recruitment for any Korean warlords for playing eve, apm must be above 200 or application reject automatic. Must speak Korean and no English. We are learning Korean to make tournament team for next year so we don’t have any spy.

TMC> Special question for Hydra, do any connections remain with 0utbreak?

Garmon > do you know that they got their stupid pedobear logo into the game and we can't get ours? im p sure they did this 2 make fun of us like look "lol we can get this accepted but ur amazing logo is make reject every single time lololol" so basically rite now we hate them for 2 thing, 1 hate is because they got us ban in AT10 and number 2 hate is because of stupid logo teasing

[Serious Information]

Hydra Reloaded is a selective WH/Null PVP focused alliance built around the corp “Genos Occidere", home to luminaries such as Garmon and former CSM representative Prometheus Exenthal. Hydra Reloaded has a long and successful history with tournaments in EVE, culminating in the infamous ATIX “scandal”, where Hydra Reloaded and their “B-team” 0utbreak collaborated and nabbed First and Second place, with 0utbreak throwing the final match halfway through. Due to this incident, CCP officially banned the participation of “B Teams” in alliance tournaments, leading to Hydra’s disqualification from ATX. Meanwhile, Hydra participated in the NEO to some success, and had a tug-of war-with Pandemic Legion in the SCL over first place. 

Noir Mercenary Group <NMG.>

Captain : Alekseyev Karrde

Noir Mercenary Group is a mercenary alliance led by former CSM member Alekseyev Karrde, and formed around the corp Noir after their brief stint in Black Legion. NMG is perhaps the only “Universal Mercenary” group in EVE, accepting contracts for mercenary work in Null/Low, as well as Wormholes and Highsec. Noir participated in ATX, but failed to advance past qualifiers.

TMC> What is the greatest strength of the team?

Alekseyev> Our communication and coordination is pretty strong, though tourney matches are not really comparable to real EVE PVP, the fleet sizes and level of coordination are something we're used to. 

TMC> What is the greatest weakness of the team?

Alekseyev>We're already one of the smallest alliances in the tournament, and over 1/3 our current membership is not eligible due to the cutoff date. If someone doesn’t show up we might not be able to replace them with someone who can fly what our setup is supposed to be on paper. We're probably going to have do quite a bit of improvisation.

TMC> Who is Noir.’s most anticipated opponent ?

Alekseyev>Our first round match up against Shadow Cartel is prize enough for us. They're a major name in lowsec and we've lost moons to their formidable faction BS fleets. An upset victory over them would feel pretty good. 
If we make it past Shadow Cartel we face the winner of Darkside/HUN Reloaded. Even though they're former champions, we're hoping its HUN. Our first ever AT match was against HUN and as last-hour replacements we pretty much had to come in the ships we were in at the time. They won effortlessly. Would love another shot at them to at least make a good showing this time.

TMC> Any remaining comments?

Alekseyev>I really like the new 64 team single elimination bracket style. I think it's a format that raises opportunities for participation, makes early matches more exciting, as well as makes the tournament more accessible to a wider audience. 
Noir. has a lot of respect and excitement for the alliance tournament. Regardless of how we do this year or any year it's an honor to get to participate in the competition.

Perpetually broke pilot of Goonswarm. Will shill for isk.
