The Showdown Invitational was a 6v6 tournament organized by Streamfleet, and took place on January 19th, 2019 on the Thunderdome event server. Four teams competed over a 10 billion ISK prize pool and "The Jin'Taan Trophy of Superior Internet Spaceshipness". The event distinguished itself from the Alliance Tournament ruleset by disallowing remote logistics.


  • Four-team single elimination bracket with third place decider match, with random seeding.
    • Grand Finals is played as a best of three (Bo3), all other matches played as best of one (Bo1).
  • Match victors are determined by most number of ships remaining at the end of round, then largest ship remaining, then most DPS remaining.

Prize Pool

The total prizepool for this tournament was 10,000,000,000 (10 Billion) ISK and the "The Jin'Taan Trophy of Superior Internet Spaceshipness" [1].

(adapted from a rules document posted by Jin'Taan.)


  • Each team must come up with five preset compositions, each with one ship from each of the following categories:
  • A ship can not be used in more than one composition.
  • Precursor ships are considered faction for the purposes of this tournament.

Composition Usage

  • Each team selects one composition to use each round.
  • Once a composition is used in a round, it can't be used for the rest of the tournament.
  • Teams can ban one of their opponent's compositions each round. Bans do not carry over between matches.
    • In the case of the grand finals reaching a third round, all previous bans in that match are nullified.


  • The fittings, and layout of these compositions must be sent to the organisers 1 week before the tournament starts.
    • The ships of these compositions will then be posted, although the fits will not. The fittings will be shown to the commentary and analysis staff in order to allow discussion and commentary with no hidden information on their part, giving them everything they need to help explain what’s going on - and forecast play plans from both sides.
  • No Remote Armor, Shield or Hull Repairers, or Remote Armor, Shield or Hull repair drones may be used, or fit to any ship of a submitted composition.
  • The Micro Jump Field Generator may not be used.
  • E-War scripts (Damps/TDs) are ONLY allowed to be used on T1 Frigates OR Faction E-War Frigates. Other ships may use E-War, but only without scripts.
  • A maximum of 1 Ancillary Shield Booster (ASB) may be fit to any ship.
  • Only T1 and Navy Faction drones may be used. ECM drones (EC-300, 600 & 900’s) are banned. All other E-War drones are permitted.
  • Only EG-603 or EE-603 implants, or Mindlinks (T2 or Navy) may be used. No drugs may be used.
  • Only T1, Meta and T2 mods may be used, and only T1 rigs may be used. Storyline, Faction, Abyssal, Deadspace, Officer, Event and other high meta level items may NOT be fit.
  • Ammo is limited to NAVY faction, T2 and T1 variants.


  • pre-October 2018 ECM was in effect due to the version of EVE Online on Thunderdome.
  • No Triglavian ships were actually available, due to the Thunderdome version predating Into the Abyss.
