Interest in another Box Tourney?

I don't have a huge amount of Free time atm, but I do have a little and am curious how much interest there is in having another box tourney of some kind?

If you don't know what a box tourney is, it's a small tourney where opposing teams are given a box of random ships, have to fit them out and plan a strategy, and then defeat the other team. It gives people the chance to fly things other than flavor of the month or the same pvp ships everyone always flies.

While it'd be great to do a multi-event one, I don't think I have time for it. I'm only going to have 4 days of in September and considering I work 12 hour days, 7 days a week when I'm 'on', it doesn't leave oodles of time. And I have to keep the wife happy so spending huge amounts of time playing EVE will not do that.

So, new box tourney, yes or no. If yes, How big? I do think I'll keep it cruiser and down, cause if I'm supplying the ships, it gets expensive.

Re: Interest in another Box Tourney?

This sounds like a lot of fun. I'm willing to help if needed.

If it's just 2 teams, then perhaps we can make the teams as large as possible depending on how many people show up.
If it's going to be multiple teams and a tournament, then 5v5 is probably the most practical.

Re: Interest in another Box Tourney?

I'm interested, but only if it ends up at a reasonable time for me.

Also, I second the idea of excess ships.

Re: Interest in another Box Tourney?

I'm also down! Structured fights are pretty fun in EvE, and a randomizer sounds intriguing!

Re: Interest in another Box Tourney?

There will only be one for this one, which is why I lean toward 20v20. I also try to have them at 12:00-14:00 CST time in Texas. This puts it early afternoon here in the US and evening in Europe. Usually on Saturday.

It looks like there is enough interest so I'll start looking to see when I have a saturday off. (For those who don't know, I work in the oilfield, on a prototype rig for Schlumberger, so I don't have tons of free time at the moment.)

I should have a date later today, so I'll post an official thread in the events section with date and time. The poll has another day to go, to see what size and once it's done, I'll do up the team list (You will need to know what race ships need filling and pick team captains.) It's really too bad this idea doesn't catch on with CCP. I think it would make for a FAR more exciting Alliance Tourney than watching teams that spent months setting up. It also requires more general PVP skills that mimic quick reaction fleets vs the preplanned stuff.

I proposed it to the CSM, for whatever it's worth, feel free to go comment.

This sounds like great fun to captain and/or FC. Reminds me of the E-UNI cup earlier this year.

Re: Interest in another Box Tourney?

It looks like August 25th will work. And while the poll hasn't finished, the vast majority seem to want 10 vs 10. Will see what I can do.
