There is no reserve player limit. Therefore, I must recruit copious amounts of players regards of whether they participate or not. Try to pinch us on gold wg? Be prepared to pay out to 200+ players on each team.

edit: nice work on front page accouncement

Others have noticed too, I see. The article on worldoftanks.com is almost an exact copy of the Skirmish VIII info, not the same as the thread on the forums here. I've gotta say, I was pretty confused for a minute.

Glad to know we aren't having duplicate tournaments :P

I'm confused.  Website says 60 max tier points and that 5 + 5 = 15... post above is completely different.  Anyway we can get the post on the website to reflect the actual requirements?

I'll have our team correct the portal's announcement. Sorry for the confusion all.

In the meantime, please reference our tournament page for all accurate rules and settings.

Maybe I'm just being a little picky or what not but why are we having a tier 3(besides 2 tanks) challenge right after CW's on the NA map has been that for the last week? Sorry for complaining lolz just figured there could be something else better to do, and one last thing only 8k to top place? Might as well call this a skirmish then.

Questioning the almighty WGA moderators is unacceptable Mallak.

I call this feedback- not complaining  :Smile_Default:
I hear what you're saying. But consider the tier of the tournaments that are currently open (AP2, Classic 2, Skirmish 8) and open registration for our pro-level "world of tanks championship series". All things considered, I think there's currently something available for everyone's interest.

Until now, we've treated eSports as a single community. We're gradually transcending to a point where our competitive player base will have to prioritize which tournament best fits their needs.

Haha no I'm fine with everything just the dudes that run with me on VS are sad to see a low tier challenge. Cause they like the multi tournies going on so there is always something to do at all tiers. Like we just got knocked out of AP2, I'm doing Classic on another team, Got VS going in Skirmish 8, and maybe running in this Challenge so it's not to hard to do all of them just manage your time and rosters :P

Or the top teams could just eat, sleep, breath tanks and continue to dominate.
