While the Alliance Team tournament for 2018 has been put in the record books and the clock slowly pushes on. In today’s world of participation trophies, one team fought to reach an honorable mention in the record books. While all of the Alliance tournament (AT) teams fought hard for those top prizes, one team went above and beyond and the statistics show it. Their story so unbelievable that it desires a moment of investigation. Let’s take a moment and diving into the Cinderella Team of the Alliance tournament.

Anveri Vestigo

Captain of the Team, Anveri Vestigo started in 2011 playing in highsec for a while before eventually graduating then to low sec. When he heard about the fighting in Null sec he wanted to head out there for the action. He went to a medium sized alliance called Phoebe Freeport Republic that was very heavy with AT team. Anveri saw this this and wanted to be a part of it. So he started taking notes and training from an early age in it. He joined up in the 2nd AT ever.
When Histaria Concord was reformed Anveri went there and originally was a logi guy. Anveri claims that his mentor in that team was Ninja Uitoh. During his time in Histaria Concord their AT team won two and lost two during AT 15. Anveri actually tried to recreate his mentor’s style of an AT team for Triumvirate and believes he succeeded in his goal.

Team History

The last Triumvirate team was two years ago, for the most part they had ran themselves into the ground and the team had crumbled apart. So Triumvirate had to rebuild their team. This years Triumvirate team was a fresh start with new leadership. They found the new leadership with Anveri Vestigo. While he had played Eve online for many years he was still a young 18 year old player. While he was only 18, he already had years of FC-ing and pvp play under his belt, he was the equal of any other veteran player. Anveri was joined with ElDiablo DelRojo, from the former Alliance Team, to become Co-Captain of the Triumvirate team. ElDiablo DelRojo depth of experience and leadership background was another pillar of experience for the team and for Anveri to draw from. Triumvirate team now with old school knowledge and new blood leadership formed the core for a chance to craft the next meta. The team’s roster was full of newer, fresher faces, unlike some of the other teams in the Alliance Tournament.

The Run Up

This first year team and first year captain started training May. What they lacked in experience they made up with pure determination and dedication. They practiced 3 to 4 times a week. The Triumvirate team put in over 780 hours in practice alone. These massive chunk of time doesn’t include time spent theory crafting and building ships. Which was a huge time sink, remarked Anveri. Anveri was also thankful for the volunteers that helped with partners for their training.
For 3 months Anveri focused only on the AT. He didn’t do fleets. So Anveri and the Triumvirate team practiced their flagship tactics every day. They saw the meta in the Leshake and so they practiced with it daily until it was second nature to them. Anveri believes it was crucial in getting as far as they did. With so much training in this doctrine they became confident in their abilities which was why they fielded it in every battle. Practice became reality as their Leshake craft helped them carry the day in the multiple conflicts

The members of the team had to sacrifice with the Corp and Alliance. Every day Anveri would take 10 to 15 guys away from the fleets to practice. Anveri said, “I hope to believe they are finally ok with so much time taken away from the fleets for the results we were able to achieve.” They would try to schedule practices around the clock. Members would get up an extra two hours before going to work just to make the training sessions.

The Mission

Anveri stated, the Triumvirate team went to the AT with the sole purpose of Fighting TEST. “We were at war with them and this was a grudge match.” This was a really big win for the guys on the team. They had reserved, quiet players screaming in the comms out from the excitement. It was an amazing thing to beat TESY 100 to 0. It made the practice and dedication worth it.
After the battle with TEST the Triumvirate team were going to face off against Skill Yourself. The team began to have doubts, “man we might not make it. These guys are good.” However, those were private thoughts as the team went out to the field like, “Let’s do our best.” Then in similar fashion to their training, they defeated Skill Yourself team.

Templis Calsf was training partners with the Triumvirate team. They had worked hard together fighting. So when it came to the bans the team leadership knew what they were strong in. Anveri admitted, “it took away the good fight from them and I felt bad. However, All is fair in love and AT.” Anveri remarked, he really does like those guys and they were great partners. Triumvirate stacked a bunch of ECMs against the Templis Calsf and so they were able to permanently jam most of the team.The first kill didn’t come until about 6 mins into the match, which is a testament of how good of pilots of Templis Calsf were.

Bright side of Death match was the scariest for Triumvirate as Anveri looked at the ships they brought this year and last and the bans they generally used. Anveri stated, “These guys never brought in the same comp twice, ever. So we were worried.” Sometimes Bright Side of Death would bring drones, which Anveri knew they were comfortable with. So Anveri was thankful when the team banned the Ishtar. If they brought drones and burst jammers though Mallas and Kares. “It would gimp or at least slow our DPS,” said Anveri. “The burst jams hurt us a lot. It was really stressful to keep people alive.” That match was really important to theTriumvirate team because they clinched the top 4 spot and the AT prize, AT ships. This had been the personally goa,l but was thought of as far fetched.

Anveri’s Thoughts

I asked Anveri if there was any regrets in the AT tournament. He remarked that the only regret he had was not being able to tackle and pin down and kill the Northern Coalition Flag Ship. However Anveri remarked that there was some amazing moments. Such as the time in the 2nd match of the tournament he was down to 64% hull and he burned out his Afterburners to 94% and just when he thought we was going to be killed Irenia Tsurpalen his logibro for life was able to get reps to his beleaguered ally and save him.

Asking if there was anything else Anveri wanted to add, here are his thoughts.

“Many people hounded us. Even some in our own alliance didn’t think we would get that far. I didn’t even think we would get this far as well. However, I am not going to complain and I believe its because of all the hard hours we put in working and training for this. Which is the reason I believe we did so well. We were a D team starting off and looking at how far we came is crazy to me. I am still in shock. I will say it before and I will say it again I am so Proud of my team and we surpassed everyone’s expectations.”

After Effects

Everything in EVE was devoted to the AT team for Anveri. Such was his dedication that the moment he went back to regular fleets after the AT and assumed the role of the “logi guy.” He would scream out info over comms before realizing he isn’t in the AT anymore. He found that he was calling out and over communicating like when he was on the AT team.

Conclusion

Special thanks to Anveri Vestigo for taking time out of his schedule to help with this article. 1st and 2nd place for the Alliance Tournament came as no great shock, they were seeded first and second respectively. I believe the true show of grit and talent came from the Cinderella Team that came from nowhere, brought together by young fresh faces and did almost the impossible. A ranked 50th team placing 3rd place in a highly competitive match. This story I believe extends further than just EVE Online, this is also a life’s lesson. If you want something bad enough, you can achieve well beyond your dreams through hard work and determination. I don’t believe we have heard the last of the Anveri and his team.

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

    advice from someone with experience. Any help would be
    enormously appreciated!
