Boring? where you watching the first round? Outbreak v VoC could have been a final match it was that good! Also a few good other matches. If your going to have hefty personal bias of it being boring then the mittany should find someone else to report.

I was nearly biting my nails at the initiative vs obsidean front match. Would not be surprised if it was the closest match in this tournament.

Just because you hate goonswarm doesn't mean they are hiding behind every bush. Take a walk or something.

Goons lost so no detailed write up, reminds me other other fights of late :)

Oh look a bunch of grrGoons comments. I'm shocked. Day 1 was pretty standard, only 3 or 4 matches with anything interesting or with any degree of suspense or uncertainty. Most matches went down as expected, including us getting ran over. That VoC v Outbreak match was pretty great though, hope to see more like that as the tournament progresses.

Because goons losing was a massive shock and completely worthy of its own writeup over the other 31 games.

Is Angry Mustache planning to post the 3rd "meet the teams" article?

I Liked the part when Pizza won and micheal balding the 3rd was wrong.

"Eight teams will be eliminated tomorrow." No. Thirty two teams will play in the elimination bracket, sixteen of them will go home after their second loss.

Nothing to do with goonswarm. The mittani still run this site. The guy is right. If the reporter doesn't want to report properly, put someone else on the job. I'm sure a lot of people are willing to write about the alliance tournament.

Ah, but the Groon pvp juggernaut triumphed over space furries. Goon dignity remains intact.

Is there a place to watch a day one recap? Disregard that, i'm dumb.

I hafto agree i thought there would be more info on some of the more intense matches. Theres always tomorrows matches though.
Avatar
Came looking for interesting analysis of matches and comps. Left disappointed by information I could find on the really bad eve-o tourney page.
Avatar
well why don't you take a look?
Avatar
yeah yeah yeah. we always lose these. Its no big deal.
Avatar
indeed, I'm i glad you see my point
Avatar
Almost a "didn't want that tourney anyway" :)
Avatar
Why not also mention who the winners fought against, and who lost? Coverage that just sends me to google for very basic information seems like pretty shoddy coverage.
Avatar
Those waffle ads from today, wow.
Avatar
Update: Goons lost BOTH their matches, while Test won theirs.

I don't think they would ask you to write your own article as the editors would knowingly be shooting themselves in the foot with that horrible spelling.

See my other comment. The one I posted 24 seconds after the first one. And at no point did I say I should be asked to write an article, I was nipping the stock response from unthinking morons in the bud. But yeah, good attempt at a troll. Cunt.
Avatar
So angry! You do realize there is another article recently updated that goes on to interview some of the other participants right?I will give you some points for being able to spell this time however. And I am not trolling, I flat out told you your spelling was terrible. Because it was.
Avatar
Read the other post yet? Calm down dear. You cant sort out the worlds spelling mistakes yourself. In fact I have looked at your posting history and spotted several by you. Nobody is perfect. Deal with it, and learn to accept imperfection. You will live longer.
Avatar
You do realize that article is part 3 of a series of interviews made before the tourney, and is not an analysis of the first round matches?
Avatar
Thank you for the attention. I apologize for any spelling mistakes I have may have made, I try to keep my mistakes to a minimum.You should still have an edit function, perhaps you could exercise the same level of standard yourself.
Avatar
So now I have under-utilized one disqus feature while over-utilizing another? Your powers of trolling are fading fast. Actually, they've gone now. Sorry.

Why is it so hard to put videos on youtube? Cmon CCP. I was not able to be online last few days. What is the delay? You dont need to edit anything. Just upload videos.
