$25,000 Up for Grabs at EVE’s New Eden Open

Posted Thu, Dec 05, 2013 by Martuk

New details have emerged about EVE Online’s next New Eden Open tournament out of CCP with registration set to open and run from Tuesday, December 10th, 2013 through Friday, December 20th, 2013. At that time, the number of teams will be announced and the silent auction will begin.

Team sizes are being reduced to 12 this year but will remain at only 32 slots with 28 of those being up for grabs in the silent auction. As for the other four slots, one will go to last year’s winner and the other three will be dispensed via raffle.

The prize for this year is as follows:

  • 1st place: $12,000
  • 2nd place: $8,000
  • 3rd place: $5,000

On Sunday, December 22nd, 2013, winners of the silent auction will be announced and the final list of teams will be published with the first tournament weekend commencing on Saturday, February 1st, 2014. The second competition weekend will take place on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 with the third and final weekend taking place on Saturday, February 15th, 2014.

In closing out his blog, CCP Bro offered some words on the payout issues from the previous New Eden Open.

Finally I wanted to quickly address the issues with payment that occurred with last years winners. It is no secret that paying out the prizes is something that has taken longer than it should. The original arrangement was that our partner at the time was supposed to handle payments of the prizes. When they closed down their service we stepped in to deliver the promised prizes without any prior experience of paying out prizes like this. This resulted in us learning multiple lessons and streamlining our processes.
