Our team handling the announcement side is at WCG. We're hoping the skirmish is publicly announced in time. In any case, your scheduled skirmish must continue!

Is it 10 per team or 7?

The Tournament page says 7, this forum thread says 10.

Here it says:
With maximum number of 10 players per battle, a team (maximum 15 players per team)

But on WoT.com, it says 7 players, with 10 on the whole team.

Which is it?

Sorry for the confusion. The opening post has been edited to reflect the tournament settings :)

Sorry to keep poking at you.

Battles for Skirmish XXVI are now scheduled. The majority of teams have a 'bye' for tonight's first round. Good luck :Smile-playing:

Are the British lend-lease premium tanks under the Soviet tree allowed? (ie. Churchill, Matilda, Valentine)

Critical info that we didn't make clear soon enough. The intention of Skirmish XXVI was to use British tanks from the new, British tree. However, we're forced to allow the British tanks under the Soviet tree seeing as how we didn't make this technicality clear earlier.

To reiterate, the following tanks (under the Soviet tree) are permissible in Skirmish XXVI:
  • Valentine
  • Matilda
  • Churchill

I dont think you were technically forced to do anything.  A big Russian flag behind it makes it Russian.  Should of just said no, I was hoping for a battle of new British crews not sticking my 5 skill Russian crew in a  premium.

Definitely a valid point.

We're including the aforementioned tanks in order to squash any possible disqualification melee. We want everyone to play and it would serve no use to simply breeze through rounds due to disqualified teams.

We'll be sure to host another British only skirmish in the near future with better defined rules.
