Only 1 reserve spot? Seems unfitting to force teams of 7 to sit someone for this when the goal is increased participation

Yea can we please get the reserves put to at least 2 this is bugging me as well.  If you have to lower prizing to allow it then do the same as the classic.  If someone brings 6 they get the listed prize and if they bring 7 have them get lowered totals.  

With it being this time of year the weather could cause a team to lose simply because 2 of their team members are stuck in traffic or lose power.

Will there be a rule concerning a team bringing 4 tanks to a battle instead of 5? Will a team of 4 be forced to use 31 points or will that be permitted. I know there has been confusion over that in the past and I'd gotten used to the rule. Thanks so much I plan to have tons of fun.

From what I heard but I may be wrong, you have to have 5 player setups

OddBall1965 ( 13,000 + battles)  is looking to join a team. Any tier, any time. Will bring only fully upgraded tanks/spgs with 100% + + crews, gold ammo etc. I am a team player and will sacrifice my own glory for that of the team ( i.e. play smart, stay arty safe, sacrifice own tank to save better/healthier teammate if neededetc)

Let the games begin! :Smile-angry:

You can go lower. 5v5 is just the max setup.

And I don't know what everyone's talking about... we are allowing 7 members per team  :Smile-hiding:

Are you really allowing tier 8 arty in a tier 8 matchup?

Yes, we are, as history has proved that in matches involving 7 or less players per battle, deciding whether or not to bring arty is a harder call than you might think.
