EVE Online: Expert PvP Tournament Commentators Wanted
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
CCP Games has announced work on the upcoming Seventh Alliance Tournament event for its sci-fi online MMO, EVE Online, and is asking expert Player vs Player gamers to apply for the commentator positions. Using voice chat from their homes those chosen will describe the unfolding action during the qualifying rounds, and on the final weekend of the tournament will be flown to Reykjavik, Iceland to help the CCP team run the live broadcast.
It's time again to put the wheels in motion for the Seventh Alliance Tournament. Starting in early September this year, you can all look forward to three weekends of mayhem and explosive action on the greatest stage in EVE.Read the blog post below to learn more.
EVE Online Blog: Tournament Commentators
We have some pretty exciting ideas for improvements this year to the whole show, and there will be a full blog on the tournament itself in a couple of weeks. That will be when we announce the instructions on how to sign up, full rules, tournament format and all the rest.
For those who missed the last one - all the matches from Alliance Tournament VI are available on CCP's YouTube channel.
The most important thing we want to announce today is that we will once again be opening up the application process for players who would like to be PVP Experts - who would fly to Iceland for the tournament finals and fill the roles of commentors for the qualifying weekends.
As an Expert you'll be on the set discussing the tournament, tactics, teams and talking with developers about EVE live on air. You'll also take shifts in the commentary booth providing live commentary on the matches themselves. You need to know your PvP and you need to know how to keep on talking!
You'll also be commenting on the two qualifying weekends from your own home. You'll be given special access to the tournament arena so you can give your view on the action which then will be relayed over EVE Voice and through partner radio stations!
But the final weekend is where the fun is. You'll be flown out to Reykjavik, Iceland to join the team here at CCP HQ to help us run the show during the live broadcast of the final weekend. Flights (from all Icelandair destinations) and accommodation are supplied by us. All you need is a little spending money.
