Hello Pilots,

You can discuss the new Tournaments here. You can find the rules and the schedule for both tournaments here:

As always please keep it civil and stay on topic.

No icons this time? I'd really prefer to have one from these tournaments,instead of the one i have from the nemesis.


Also.. are those quantities right? 100 ammo rounds? And mostly things for strikes?


Edit: Exp boosters as prizes, and double exp events... Why would i care about exp if there is no use for it? And most people who stand a chance to place probably have all skills maxed as well.

yeah, cool. do lots more of these for everything all the time... ;P

you could put these on rotation, mixing up the times, reason, places and systems every month?
and every month (worthy newsletter length months even) Add lots of new ones?... about new things?... with many more pve related ones too? our avatar must also already remember what it does so it cant be too hard to keep adding rewards for milestones?
call them -non instance fleet missions- stop pitting factions against themselves and we have the beginnings of good, repeatable and rewarding Content.

I see my nemesis icon in my profile, after this last update. But indeed, it is still not visible above my name for others.

I'm not hoping they fix that one anyway... but i expected the new, fair, tournaments to have them too.

Are you kidding...its my ONLY trinket. I want!!!!

As far as the others...bad timing for the 2nd one...got to work at the time of that one.

The prizes are kind of meh....I like tuning kits..but guns, ammo, and such is a waste especially if the guns are anything but level 10+!!!

If it is correct and it's just a 100 ammo. . . then it's a complete and utter waste as that amount is so paltry that it will be burned through in a few seconds of combat.

As for the strikes, I would much rather they offered more things for them as an incentive to actually stick with the ships that the game is suppose to be based on.

Not saying that escort and line ships shouldn't get things but seriously, this game all but kicks you out of your strike at level 10.

On another note, they REALLY need to get their arse in gear and fix the combat assignment rewards so that you can pick which "package" you want. Not everyone jumps to the next ship at the EXACT level breaks.

Will a tournament ever come that is based more on an arena format with rules?I don't know about everyone else,but after nemesis and the spawncamping/blockading and op hugging i'd rather have fights on a 1 to 1 basis,these tournaments in systems just don't appeal to me anymore.

I think it would be fun to have a Peggy vs Basestar (1st colonial and 1st cylon in the tournament) as a final, in a way people could see the battle.

As it was said.. unless it is at least level 10 equip, it wont be much incentive for anything.
After they gave carriers in the first one, the rewards for the Real tournaments now seems very weak.

And again... 100 ammo must be a mistake
