Alliance Tournament XV Starts Next Week!

Once again, this year’s Alliance Tournament is fast approaching. Teams have been practicing for months in preparation for New Eden’s premiere tournament. Who will take home the prizes? Watch the action over all four weekends starting July 29 to find out.

Tournament Times

As mentioned earlier, Alliance Tournament XV will take place over four weekends. Each weekend, the stream will start at these times:

The full match schedule can be found here on the community website.

The first two weekends will be broadcasted by EVE_NT on their twitch channel over at https://twitch.tv/eve_nt_tv. EVE_NT also have an excellent collection of articles and videos regarding the tournament and the teams fighting in it that should not be missed, as well as analysis of the Feeder Rounds that took place in June.

EVE_NT is also hosting a viewer party at Antenna in Nottingham, United Kingdom. If you’re in the area, you should grab a ticket and join them for all the fun and action from the tournament. More details can be found here.

The final two weekends will be broadcast by CCP from our studio here in Reykjavik Iceland, where we’ll be covering every match with the help of a team of expert player commentators. Make sure you’re there for every match as this is when the best teams will be bringing everything they have to the table to win.

Show your colors

This year we are adding some new ways for you to show your support for the Alliance Tournament. First up is a new IGC themed background for your character portrait. This is available for free to every pilot in New Eden right now, so show your support by grabbing it today.

Additionally, we will be offering IGC themed SKINs for the entire line of Serpentis ships in the New Eden Store. We’ll be rolling out a different group each week starting July 25, starting with the Violator and Daredevil SKINs.

July 25 – Aug 1

  • Violator IGC SKIN – 55 PLEX
  • Daredevil IGC SKIN – 110 PLEX

Aug 1 – Aug 8

  • Vigilant IGC SKIN – 110 PLEX
  • Vindicator IGC SKIN – 250 PLEX

Aug 8 – Aug 15

  • Vehement IGC SKIN – 390 PLEX
  • Vendetta IGC SKIN – 390 PLEX
  • Vanquisher IGC SKIN – 390 PLEX

 Aug 15 – Aug 22

  • All 7 IGC Serpentis SKINs will be available at the above prices

As a special bonus, we’ll be offering the complete set of SKINs from July 25 for only 1525 PLEX. This is great if you want to either grab all the SKINs, or want to grab some early.

Additionally, we’ll also be offering a bundle of IGC SKINs offered during the previous EVE_NT Championship containing the Cormorant, the Caracal and the Drake. If you’ve been eyeing other pilots enviously that managed to pick them up the first time, make sure you grab them when they’re available from August 15 to August 22.

Billboard Blitz

If you have skills with making videos, you’ll be pleased to know we have a contest just for you. The Independent Gaming Commission is commissioning the creation of advertisements to be played on billboards across New Eden to promote the upcoming tournament, and is now accepting submissions from Capsuleers. They will be selecting four videos to be played on billboards, and as a reward are offering 1000 PLEX and IGC SKINs. Details are as follows:

  • Videos must follow all normal rules for billboard submissions. Note that the Fancy UI used for the tournament broadcast is permitted in videos if you wish to use footage from tournament matches.
  • Videos must promote the Alliance Tournament. Part of the judgement of videos will be on how well they promote the tournament
  • Videos may also contain promotion of a team participating in Alliance Tournament XV
  • Videos may not include promotion of player entities not involved in Alliance Tournament XV
  • Videos must be submitted to logibro@ccpgames.com before 23:59UTC, 2017-07-30
  • Please include your character name with your submission and email it from the email registered with your EVE account
  • 1000 PLEX and a complete set of the IGC Serpentis SKINs will be awarded for the four best videos as judged by CCP. Each person may submit and win with more than one video.
  • Video creators may find the following two images useful: Alliance Tournament Logo; IGC Logo

We are also still taking submissions for ads during the Alliance Tournament broadcast itself. If you’re interested in seeing you, your corporation, or your alliance up in lights, make sure you check out this forum post with all the details.

That’s all for now. As always, we look forward to seeing all the teams compete and having the community join us to see who comes out on top.

On behalf of the Tournament Team
