I understand your frustration tanqtonic. Unfortunately, I can't speak for Clan Wars  :Smile_sad: . This is merely an event offered by our eSports department. We're all hoping for a quick resolution to Clan Wars.

Thank you for a very civil response to a not-so-civil rant.   I thank you for putting on the "alternate events", and this should not be taken as a disparagement of the efforts.  You all have done a fine job putting ribbon on a bad situation; but the singular fact remains that the "cute ribbons" are starting to show wear around the edges.

The situation would have at least a little less edge if there were *any* communication; even a post of "it will be more than 3 weeks".  If the situation was now rectified, you have already had *some* damage to your "product".  If the non-CW continues for awhile, and if there is no attempt to communicate, the damage will be far worse than that with no-CW but *with* communication.

The frustration is palpably worse with the "no communication" stance that WG may have adopted here.

Again, this is not to denigrate the efforts to provide *something* in the light of what has happened.  But, I am reminded of several scenes from videos of the Costa Concordia where, when the ship is sinking, the activities director tries to keep the party going.  The fault lies not with the activities director who is attempting to keep things calm with distractions, but with the captain for both running into the reef *and* refusing to let pertinent information out until it was too late.  Given that, your efforts *are* very much appreciated.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.  :Smile_Default:

We really want to encourage participation. So we've analyzed the prizing further and would like to offer the following!
  • 1st Place Team - 1,000 gold
  • 2nd Place Team - 750 gold
  • 3rd Place Team - 500 gold
  • 50 gold awarded for every round you win
Also, please note that tied teams will split the prize pool for 1st - 3rd place.

This change made the scrim totally worth playing or attempting, great job WG.

Maybe I should have demanded 3k >_> I was just trying to point out that below 1500 gold everyone, even the winning team, would probably lose money while playing this.
T10s are surprisingly a bit more expensive than T3s. IMO it would be best if they just disabled the costs for repair and ammo for tournaments.

Seriously, if this is practice for Clan Wars, then that means shooting gold. And if you're shooting gold in your tier X and mauling your way up a bracket through 9 matches, 1000 gold may not even cover your costs. A "reward" should not be simply defraying part of your out-of-pocket expenses.

We're easing the "Ultimate Conquest" rules for these scrimmages for the sake of maximizing the number of opponents.

All battles for this weekend are scheduled. Have fun all!  :Smile_Default:

"Additionally, teams will be awarded 50 for each round they win"

I think this is great! it will really encourage people to play. Thanks. More like this, please.

Is it still possible to add a team member now? One of our clanmates could not be logged in until now, and he cannot sign in. Our team has been accepted..

División Armada de México[MEX]

Thanks for letting me know!

This was great fun!  :Smile_great:  2 hours of play for 1350 gold is awesome in my opinion.

I obviously did not spend gold on my ammo so I probably spent ~200k credits. I only needed to fire gold 3 of the 7 battles so I didn't mind the ammunition cost much. I'll just run my Type or SP twice to recoup my costs  :Smile_veryhappy:

Anyways would love to see move of these quick fun tournaments.

You already get paid? I am just wondering if the 50gold per match won is every team or just the teams that place?

Thanks

My guess is that gold payments will go out once all 3 days are done and it should be 50 gold per win regardless of final outcome.

I think you may have eased them too much: http://worldoftanks..../22925-Tankers/

That kind of team shouldn't be allowed to participate.  I like the free gold, but come on, not one of them owns a tier 10.

My sources confirm that your gold hasn't been distributed yet. But you can expect it shortly.
