EVE Online is bringing back its Alliance Tournament, which will take place this November. Announced via a trailer this morning on YouTube, the Alliance Tournament will see 10v10 space battles take place again for prizes and glory, all while New Eden looks on, cheering for their favorite faction.

The Alliance Tournament (the 17th tournament, to be precise) will take place in November, though sign ups will begin as early as next week. Teams will be able to sign up for the tournament and start getting their strategies and such together as they ramp into the actual tournament later this year.

"Take up your flags, the 10 v 10 battle for alliance supremacy returns to EVE Online this November! Alliances will once again be sending their champions to battle it out in the arena for glory and epic prizes, while a desk of experienced casters will break down the action for you as you cheer your team on to victory. There will even be some exciting new prizes for viewers to earn while rooting for their teams!

Signups will open on 19 July at 11:00 UTC, so expect a follow up article with full rules and signup instructions on that day. Until then, rally your alliance mates, get your propaganda artists working on a new video advertisement, and blow the dust off your alliance executor (so they can register your team on time!)"

CCP Games states that the tournament will be broadcast professionally from Reykjavik in the team's new studio. Players will be able to submit in-game advertisements for corporations and more to play during the broadcast as well. More information on sign ups and more will be announced next week.
