Mordu's Tourney: Round 1 Roundup

 Many misconceptions were dispelled this weekend regarding the perceptions in New Eden. When the virtual dust cleared only the strong survived. It seems many of us underestimated certain groups and overestimated a myriad of others. While some are still baffled by the absence of groups like STB, Tritan Industries and Betamax in the competition. While one can hardly blame CONCORD for limiting the contest to 16 contestants, some felt differently. We reached out to Quickgloves of STB who took the opportunity to bash the decision to include two ROFL groups into the tourney. "CONCORD did not properly screen the event. This tournament was a flop. Some corps couldnt even field the full 16 needed. ROFL House had to play its own team KEQ Cmon man really how do u lose that match !! LOL ... My comment to ROFL is this DUMB MOVE NOT ONLY DO U LOOK BAD ONCE WHEN U GET STEAM ROLLED BY REAL CORPS BUT U GET TO LOOK BAD TWICE GJ!! YOU ARE SO SMART! To the guys like Betamax and Tritan that got left out its really a shame."

Mordu's Tournament: The Sweet 16

Less than an hour ago, officials from Mordu's Legion in cooperation from elements from CONCORD, announced the sixteen corps that have gained entry into the highly publicized contest between some of the best corporations currently training in Morduspace. The participant list is a virtual who's who of early training engagements. From groups like SI, WTF, Zion TCD, SyN, PRO, Shadow Company, ROFL House, OSG and of course The Imperfects, who many consider the front-runner, who have recently added members of Global Conflict to their roster.

Report: Imperfects and Global Conflict Merger?

 To those in the know apparently this was a merger in the making for some time now, but it took the rest of the corps training in Mordu space by surprise. The Imperfects, a group with ties to Betamax and reportedly veteran New Eden corporations as well. Global Conflict, the infamous battle-hardened veterans of the MAG border skirmishes of the past linked to the anarchist led 'Burn New Eden' movement.

Which Corp will be crowned Mordu's Champion?

Old addages often tell us that even in the worst of circumstances the cream will rise to the top. In the case of the Muryia Mordu sponsored Corp Wargames, this may prove to be the truth. Yesterday his legion announced that the training area countless corporations are currently using for combat exercises, will hold a series of graded VR battle simulations where months of training will finally be put to the test. Before the announcement was an hour old veteran New Eden corps were already wagering millions of credits on who the winner would be. Next, more than twenty of them donated currency and other assets to an escrow that would be held for the winner. A little over twelve hours ago it was announced that the amount garnered for the winner of the event had grown to 250 million credits, a kings ransom.

Cerebral Wolf: Goon Leadership or Lackey?

“He who knows not and knows not that he knows not: is a fool - shun him." - Proverbs

Less than a week ago representatives from our blog were approached by someone claiming to be a member of GSF. The man referred to as Cerebral Wolf had answered questions for us previously in regards to our Corp Power Rankings series, but seemed almost too happy to do it, much like a subordinate just a little too eager to give his credentials. "Me! Me! Look at me i'm a Goon!" was what the skilled observer would have seen. Shame on us for not knowing better.

A Look Inside the Betamax Transcripts!

It seems that on top of leadership not informing membership as a whole regarding the "restructuring" there have been other concerns not addressed by leadership that have brought [BETAMAX] to this point. An inside source gave us a look inside their forum for some of the details.

The Fall of Betamax?

The Fall of Betamax

 One of the top corps in the leaderboards of The DUST 514 known as Betamax is almost no more. This has just been revealed in a recent post on the DUST 514 closed Beta forums. A member of TCD asked the question Betamax? In the title of his post and here are the responses.

Link between Faux GNN and EON Discovered?

In this exclusive, our source inside the EON Alliance supplies us with private discussions from within the group where leadership discusses the reputations of current alliances, avoiding the missteps of corps like STB, and most importantly an instance where they openly discuss using the Faux GNN [no relation to us] as a disinformation tool.

Necessary: Friendly Fire ON

 Recently it was acknowledged that some areas of space [high-sec and low-sec] may be 'friendly fire off' zones as far as Dust 514 is concerned. We can't imagine a worse decision for CCP to make. Throughout gaming, similar decisions have been made that have had horrible results on the hardcore fanbases of shooter titles. We take a look back at the long history of the debacles that friendly fire OFF has caused.

What is MT246?

Its roots seem to point to some secret group or organization with a purpose. Five characters that hold some hidden meaning. Code words that represent commands or initiate plans have a long history in New Eden, is MT246 the command that starts some manner of mobilization? No one will forget how the word 'Nicole' was the impetus that preceded the assassination of Ubiqua Seraph Corp's Mirial by the Guiding Hand Social Club.
