The first player-run Dust 514 tournament and the first Dust 514 tournament on Tranquility concluded Saturday over Evaulon VII in Placid where the finals took place in District 13 outside the ruins of the city of Rilnais.
SVER True Blood (STB) of Unclaimed. and Pink Fluffy Bounty Hunterz (PFBHz) of Rise of Legion reached the finals after coming out on top in the Open Round-Robin and Double Elimination phases of the tourney that included over a month of fighting.
A massive 300+ ship fleet battle occurred in orbit to see who would take the 1 billion ISK prize for the first orbital bombardment kills during the final match. Both fleets were out for blood with Unclaimed especially driven after loosing a titan during logistical preparation for the tournament. ROFL's 50 man fleet forced their way through Unclaimed's 200+ mass of Talwars just long enough to deliver a single orbital strike before having to withdraw. On the ground, after close fighting the majority of the match, PFBHz was able to seize victory through using strategic drop-uplink positioning, HAV suppression, and excellent orbital strike placement.
