This is nothing to do with Pandas - I repeat nothing to do with Pandas
Based on what i've seen on the PVP forum so far, Mini's survey, Novalus' suggestions, CSI 's & TFS's lead, and also trying not to fall into the same pitfalls sadly the mentioned fleets / people fell into, I want to host a Space PVP tournament for all in and out of the PVP community.
I am going to keep the rules simple.
01. Have fun - Most important
02. No siphon drones and danubes (Not fun and skillfull)
03. No more than 3 of the same captains or ship types
04. No Boarding Parties (Broken)
05. No Dkora EMP burst (Broken)
06. No scramble sensors with the DOFFs (Without DOFFs no issue)
07. No Grav Pulse (AOE 50 second hold not fun)
08. Once you are in 1 team an have played, you cannot move to another
09. Temporal Inversion not allowed
10. Tachyon Mines
Reward: Knowing you are the victor and vast amounts of fun.
All I'm gonna ask for is put your team down
Rules may and will change based on the latest screw up by STO :0
There is not going to be a debate of any description
All I will say is I will be extremely fair
Please Put down your name / Fleet / Team in this thread and nothing else.
If you dont like the rules, please don't derail the thread and you dont need to participate if you dont like the rules.
Thanks in advance and remember, we are here to have fun. Forget the bad blood of the past and aim for the fun PVP bit which we are all looking for.
Time & location finalised:
The tournament will be held on 6th April 2013 - Time 9pm GMT
The Teamspeak Server will be the Boot camp server (Thanks goes out to Pheo - Again)

A big thank you goes to CSI fleet for combining their previous efforts into this tournament. Thank you.

"No, there is no real problem with P2W in STO. Obviously, if you fight against someone with an equal level of skill in the game, better equipment will give you an edge. But usually, it is the skill level that determines the outcome, not the P2W." - Sprinkles
Why even bother with any restrictions whatsoever? If everyone wants to ride carriers, let them ride carriers; they want oddys, they'll use oddys; etc. Seriously, you're just in it for winning period and while my brain tries to rack-up a decent response, I'll let the late George Carlin say it for me.
