Caldari PvP Tournament: Day Four Review

By Svarthol

Day Four of the tournament saw the knock-out stages begin take shape in a bruising day of battle that ensured some intriguing final group games. Few would have predicted some of those advancing and even fewer some who fell, which all lent to an air of mystery surrounding the championships as tens of thousands of pod-pilots crammed round any available holo-reel to watch developments.
