So since we’ve seen the first batch of Qualifiers I guess most of you are now either sitting down all psyched up about the matches, some of the surprising setups or possibly with a big question mark on your face, since apparently CCP Soundwave is either on Hoth, in Africa or trying to liberate various cuddly cats from the claws of defeat.
In either case, for those following the Disco at the Undock during the pauses you’ll of course know most of the details already.
So, with the first round over, 64 teams has been fighting over the first points. In the qualifiers its a potential 6 vs 6 setup and each team can field up to 50 points. Teams that take home a flawless victory will get 62.5 points, and for each lost vessel its a reduction in point gained for the winning team. Even though its common to see teams fall apart on the playing field, some are capable of holding out with just a few ships, taking home a few points which leaves them better off in comparison to the other losing teams – or possibly for next round where we of course expect a few losers to take home a few more points!
Losing may be bad, and the losers should feel bad about it, but its still important to gain points!
Here are the current standings, from the teams in the qualifiers:
For some teams, it would seem that the fight at this point is over, even with a win – its going to be a bloody weekend come saturday!
