It really sucks when something even the presenters were looking forward to seeing gets cut off like this due to technical issues. At this point it’s still unknown whether was due to issues at CCP’s end or their streamer’s, but history with Alliance Tournaments have shown there’s no perfect solution for presenting this kind of EVE content to the masses.
They have, however, nailed the timing aspect of ticking everyone off. :)
In CCP’s defense, a repeated broadcast of the Pandemic Legion vs. Kill It With Fire match was done just after five thousand people switched off the stream. Whether this was due to them just getting up to go do something else, rage at the outage, or the eardrum-raping dubstep mix broadcast just after the tournament switched off is anyone’s guess…
