I think there is an error with the links, because the link to the tier 6 and tier 4 tournaments, bring you to the tier 8 registration.

River of Blood is going to focus on the Tier 6 Challenge.  What can I say, we favor smaller tanks.

Good luck everyone!

I have a team set up for tier 6. Looking for some players that are interested. Prefer to have the team completely form ASAP so that we can use the training room to practice. Send me a message if interested.

Hey all, Im looking for a tier 6 team. I have a maxed out M4A3E2 and by the time of the tourny my M6 will be maxed. Also have a VK3601H but I'm more effective with the American tanks at this tier. I have tier 4 T40 that is maxed out (100% crew) that Im pretty good with also if there is a tier 4 team out there.

Thx

I am with a previous poster to this thread. Where exactly do i find the sign up for the Tier 6 or 4 challenge? the link in the info page always goes to tier 8 sign up. I have tried so locate another link, and have tried to type in a 6 or a 4 where the 8 is in the address bar and still found the same issue. Just some clarification would be nice. Thanks for the help
