I. EVE's Alliance Tournament X begins this weekend, the 10th version of the greatest e-sports competition in gaming where player Alliances put their own ships and modules on the line and practice for months in as much secrecy as they can muster. A single shared universe ups the ante in a way not seen by other gaming tournaments, where the victors' prizes are magnified with gained fame and defeats not only carry a heavy price in material loss but also in pride. The rich history of the tournament suggests inevitable drama and deal brokering behind the scenes.
If you were ever curious about EVE's notorious PvP, this is the perfect intro with some of the top pilots in the game and full expert commentary--streamed completely for free.
Rounds begin Saturday June 30th at 15:00 UTC with Agony Empire vs. Exiled Ones.
A full schedule and information on streaming can be found here.

II. We would be remiss not to point out something else that can only happen in EVE. Our universe is truly in the players hands, on a scale unmatched by other games. And they revel in it.
Summer is coming...
