(OOC) Alliance Tournament 8: Round 2… FIGHT!

Wow. Really happy with how many matches I called right. Maybe I should start betting isk!

All the videos as well as some impressive write-ups can be found at the Alliance Tournament site. The statistics being gathered by the site become more interesting as the tourney progresses.

Some quick notes before my calls for round 2.

– HYDRA and AGONY… did anyone see that happening at any point in alliance history? More to the point, does anyone see such a gambit actually working?

– I am saddened by the extensive use of fail-Drakes.

– Good on DarkSide. for using Maelstroms. A very underutilized ship. Fear the alpha!

– Amazing showing by WE FROM VOLTRON. Kudos to such amazing FCing as well as fielding the first flagship with such effectiveness. That Bhaalgorn was awesome.

– As seen in the showing by The Tusker Bastards vs. HUN Reloaded, having a flagship on the field is not going to assure victory. Interesting that it was another Bhaalgorn.

– Odd that all the flagships of the first round were Bhaalgorns. Especially since Amarr ships are much less common than Minmatar or Caldari ships this year.

– If anyone wants to see what perfect FCing looks like, look to The Wrong Alliance. Not a crazy setup, but beautifully executed against IAC.

– While we won, I was expecting a better showing from the Ushra’Khan. Hopefully we can step it up in the next round.

OK, round 2 picks!
