You play a team, 1st to 3 wins advances to next round. It's a knockout tourney not a league.

Thanks, couldn't figure out how it could be anything but that, but nice to hear nonetheless. That would mean that highly defensive strategies would not be nearly as effective as I heard it was was the league format. The one point for a draw, thing seemed to favor conservative play, where the 3 wins thing seems to suggest aggressive play will be favored? VK2801 Derp Rushes?

Is this mode going to be encounter, or is this going to be "encounter"?

The Zhukov Challenge is officially scheduled. The majority of teams will have a bye during the first round. However, there are 42 teams, due to luck of the draw, that are scheduled to open the first round on Monday night.

Good luck to all teams!

Although, with the tier 6 TD's being allowed, the M18 might be pretty good option.

turrent is to slow, my m4/2801 will 2 shot ya in matter of seconds before you can even try to spin me, bad choice in my eyes

How do we see if we're one of the teams who are playing Monday night? Any I don't see how only 44 teams are playing? Aren't there several hundred teams signed up?

Where can see a line up of who IS fighting?

Since you can't seem to figure anything out.

http://worldoftanks....ukov_Challenge/
click either "battle schedule" OR "tournament page" OR go to your team page and look at scheduled batles

Less teams are playing than total because they're an odd number of teams. First rounds often have many byes in order to "even up" the team count at either 128 or 256.

It never occurred to me to look at that link. ;-( Of course I read the link and checked our team page. I have 8 people I have to let know if we're playing Monday or night so they can schedule the time off from regular lives.

He said specifically that the majority of teams would NOT be playing Monday night..There should be some odd number of teams not playing but the vast majority would normally play the first round with A FEW receiving a bye. How, with hundreds of teams are only 44 playing? Unless the hundreds of teams that shows as accepted is not accurate.

THAT is what I"m asking....not asking for snide comments about I can't figure out anything for myself. My clan is just now starting to enter these events and if I don't have it organized well, the team may  be less enthused next time to participate. I'm trying to avoid that. I've been working hard to get my team interested in these kind of events and if I can't reliable tell 7 other people with vastly different life schedules where and when they need to be there, they will not continue to participate.

I've entered other special events and tournaments. It is this one that our clan is entering in an organized way for the first time that I'd like to get an answer about.

Why are only 44 playing Monday night? Because with 22 teams after the first day that creates an even number for the rest of the nights, like 256 total? I need to be able to tell my team that this is the way this was formatted so next time to be prepared to play first or second night depending and adjust their schedules accordingly.

So, you think if you have a bye you don't get to advance?

to help your English skills.

As far as telling your team what to expect next tournament. The schedule and possibility of a bye round are dependent on registration numbers, something that changes every tournament.

Had a question, but found the answer. Can't figure out how to delete this post, so don't pay any more attention to it.

Please note that due to an issue with registration, we have accepted some additional teams who applied later. If your team was previously rejected, please check your team's current status as it may now be accepted.

I have a question.
On this page http://worldoftanks....ukov_Challenge/ My team Cazadores don't have to play today, but in the standing http://worldoftanks....allenge/?draw=1 we do have to play today against W1nners, and also appear the same team in our schedule http://worldoftanks....6571-Cazadores/, but without date.

Can you fix/tell us if we have to play or not?
