Today, DHB WildCat, formerly of Genos Occidere, a former member corporation of Alliance Tournament XIII winners Warlords of the Deep, today announced that Warlords of the Deep, along with second placed Camel Empire, colluded to win the alliance tournament. This statement was published on the EVE Online forums, and can be read here.

The moment came during the final weekend. For me and several of the Warlords pilots we knew something was wrong. This is the true story from a non leadership pilot of Warlords final weekend.

First some clearance. All things that I hated because they are underhanded but are / were absolutely legal.

-shared wormhole / pos / and joined new testing sisi corporation with camels.
– shared logistics and spies.
– shared set-ups
– shared AT uniques for matches between the teams during tournament. Or more specifically Camel used our AT ships for the most part.
– shared prizes. yep once Warlords and Camels took 1 and 2 we joined the prize pool of 80 ships and distributed prizes amongst both teams equally.

August 29th, Camel vs Warlords.

Match 1 – Legit fight. Except for some very weird target calling. Was nothing like what had practiced. We should have won that fight. Also side note / this was the only match I didn’t fly in because for the final weekend Kadesh SOS’d Garmon to come fly in case Haart couldn’t be here. Instead he took my spot. Meh 4 months of practicing and working hard to be replaced by someone that had absolutely 0 input or help to the team prior to the final weekend…… I was a bit bitter. Garmon however manned up and realized that I was probably a better fit to fly the Battleships. Lets be honest Haart (Sgt Anti) missed 4 out of the 5 bump attempts he made and only side scraped a vulture once after it was already 30km away.

Match 2 – This is were the **** gets interesting. You’ll notice that we lost this fight but that the 2nd fight of the finals was almost identical with a totally different outcome. After this loss I was irate! I was yelling on comms and questioning Leadership thinking something was off. Then I get a Skype convo by Kadesh.

[8/29/2015 1:43:30 PM] Kadesh: dont get depressed m8. Our matches were staged. We ran 1st setups predefined which were decided by online coinflip
[8/29/2015 1:43:44 PM] Kadesh: who lost 1st match was supposed to get ff/shallow vs heaven
[8/29/2015 1:43:57 PM] Kadesh: so we had just 1 real fight which we lost
[8/29/2015 1:44:32 PM] Kadesh: and 2nd was 0 chances for us to win
[8/29/2015 1:44:41 PM] Kadesh: this is to get more time to prep vs bo1 in losers
[8/29/2015 1:44:47 PM] Kadesh: otherwise we’d have like 20 minutes
[8/29/2015 1:44:56 PM] Kadesh: while tuskers had 40 or 1 hour
[8/29/2015 1:45:14 PM] Kadesh: and regarding finals we will talk again later with camels
[8/29/2015 1:45:33 PM] Kadesh: i want to win and will do everything to. We just couldnt set up semifinals because of massive PL rage on forums
[8/29/2015 1:45:42 PM] Kadesh: and we had to do ~real fights~
[8/29/2015 1:46:35 PM] Chris Gaidzik: well still not happy about it, but it really would have been nice if you let us know that before we bet several billions of isk on our team thinking we had a chance
[8/29/2015 1:46:44 PM] Kadesh: we had
[8/29/2015 1:46:48 PM] Kadesh: if we won 1st fight
[8/29/2015 1:46:53 PM] Kadesh: camels would throw 2nd
[8/29/2015 1:47:05 PM] Kadesh: it was just 1st match
[8/29/2015 1:47:17 PM] Kadesh: we basically reduced bo3 to bo1 + 1 additional match
[8/29/2015 1:47:31 PM] Kadesh: we also changed many fits so PL dont get an idea of what our setups are
[8/29/2015 1:47:43 PM] Kadesh: so it’s better for overall chances
[8/29/2015 1:48:20 PM] Kadesh: we can’t spread this info because if any ****** talks too much
[8/29/2015 1:48:26 PM] Kadesh: we’re banned as both teams

At this point I didn’t know what to do. I was the bad guy. On a team breaking rules. I was and am torn. I wanted to quit. The only thing that kept me there were the guys that weren’t in leadership for both teams that were legitimately working their asses off to win. I couldn’t quit on them. I hated Kadesh so much at this point. I didn’t really get along with him anyways before.

So we went on from there. Beating Tuskers. and then beating PL.

So now the finals. I don’t know what to even think of it myself.

Match 1 – Nothing to me seemed off here. Our set-up was designed to destroy the logi fast, which it did. Then just won on outlasting the opponent.

Match 2 – almost mirror match of what we lost to the first time we faced Camels. I was nervous. Ran backwards 20 km to line up a bump. Then raged in and bumped vulture out of range. We killed it and then won after that. However it was nice using our regular set-ups and not having logi perma jammed.

Match 3 – Sacrifice the Chremoa. So I dont know what to think. After the Kadesh convo I was questioning everything. We removed most if not all RSB’s and replaced them with REECM. We then proceeded to get wrecked by damps………….

Match 4 – Finally got tired of the bullshit and told Kadesh to shut up and took over calling. We played passive for a while. Kadesh neuting the primary claymore. I begged and pleaded to the point of my voice going out for Kadesh to stop being an idiot and go neut the logi. He wouldn’t initially saying we had to neut the claymore. I finally told him I would take over the neuting and tackle, just go neut the GOD DAMN LOGI SO WE CAN KILL SOMETHING! So I sacrificed myself by tackling the claymore in my phoon and neuting it. now with the logi neuted the bombers started dieing. The claymore died. I died but not before rage cruise put the second claymore into hull. Haart kiting at 60km was able to finish the claymore and then SNI’s with bomber help as the t3 wing killed bombers, until soldat went down in our own logi and then I made the call for the t3d to take down their logi. Which is why the last bomber didn’t die right away.

All in all I don’t know what to think. I just know I’m pissed. And I waited this long so the guys that did this legitly could be rewarded for their efforts. Warlords and Camel leadership fixed 1 match I know of. As for the finals I don’t know what to think. I honestly don’t.

All I am certain of is that………….

1) There are still some good guys on the Camel and Warlord team that had no idea of what was going on and just worked their asses off!
2) PL / Exodus …… I’m sorry you guys were up against overwhelming odds and did fantastically.
3) I have still not won an AT legitly and cannot call myself an AT champion.
4) This probably means I will never fly an AT again since I am leaving Hydra and noone will probably take me in. lol
5) CCP I am sorry.

I am sorry to the Camel and Warlord guys that played this legit. You all rock.

Communication was attempted with DHB WildCat, however, he was unavailable to comment at the time of publication.

With this in mind, should CCP begin a thorough investigation into the conduct of both Camel Empire, and Warlords of the Deep, or should it be accepted that these things happen in online tournaments such as this. What is your opinion?
