So if any of you capsuleers out there live in Hawaii you know how confusing a timezone it is for EVE events. We pretty much bridge the west coast USA crowd and the Australians. This ridiculous timezone proves problematic for watching the Alliance Tournament live as the tourney starts every weekend morning at 5am... I must love EVE because I've been waking up at 5am every weekend to watch the live feed.
Well anyway on Sunday for the last day of the finals Grafterion, my RL friend and corpmate who also lives in Hawaii, decided to hang out Saturday night at a bar and listen to local band Elephant. We planned on waking up and watching the tournament the next morning on his massive TV.
Jump forward its 2am... and we stumble into his and his roommates house. We drunkenly realize that there is no hope that we will wake up for the show if we fall asleep now. So we made the decision to stay awake so we could watch it. Capsuleers, we succeeded and I'm glad we did, but my god was I in sad shape at work the next day. People just don't understand when you tell them you are hungover and dead tired because you had to stay awake all night to watch other people play video games.
Sleep or no sleep this weekend was a blast and I don't regret it... even if the final match was a complete anti-climax. Good job to all teams! I'll be watching you again next year, making bets, and swaying in my cups.
