Welcome to Jester's Trek.
I'm your host, Jester. I've been an EVE Online player for about six years. One of my four mains is Ripard Teg, pictured at left. Sadly, I've succumbed to "bittervet" disease, but I'm wandering the New Eden landscape (and from time to time, the MMO landscape) in search of a cure.

Picture of the Week: Unlucky

The process for the silent auction is pretty damn depressing, so all of us in Rote Kapelle were really hoping we'd get picked up in the random draw today for Alliance Tournament XI.


Nope.  Congratulations to those that did get in this way, though!

  3. I'd prefer there to be two auctions, with the random drawn in between. (To have less random slots go to rich alliances who can pay for their slots anyway).

    (Just my 2 cents)

  4. It could be worse, for the second time we forgot to send the plexes...

  5. PL and Verge of Collapse didn't make it?

    1. No, CCP elected not to give anyone a bye this year. Everyone who wants in has to either be drawn or pay for a slot via the silent auction.

    1. I think these are in the order that teams submitted their five PLEXes for the draw. Rote's kinda poor, so it took us a while to get that much ISK together. ;-)

  7. Silent auction for what?

    1. Over today, the remaining alliance executors that wish to participate in the tournament have to send contracts of PLEXes to the CCP employee coordinating the remaining 32 tournament slots.

      The 32 alliances that bid the most PLEXes get the slots.

    1. For the brackets to work, that means 64 teams, no more. With more teams, some teams would need a larger number of matches (thus spending more ISK and more pilot time) to get to the same final.

  9. I hope Rote gets in.

    See you in PE1, Ripard.

  10. Surely you're joking... You were the Exiled ones, probably lost it at a Choke point in the draw, probably your chances were in the Verge of collapse. Hope The initiative your Brave collective had there gets rewarded some other time by ensuring a Fatal Ascension to all of the next Castabouts. Don't get in the Retirement Club and keep up the good work! Transmission lost, until next time...
