I've read this three times and i see no mentioning of the maximum members allowed.

Also, from experience, standard mode on Ensk with only five tanks allowed max just encourages camp.

Teams may deploy no more than 5 members in each match.
If you ask about maximum including backup players, then I do not see note about it. But usual amount is 2.

The prize is great but you know its the autoloader world all over again ... or the camp fest whichever way you look at it.
41 is tricky though - 4 AMX50 100s with a T1 cunningham.. man those T1s are op.

Gun depression is not too crucial in such maps.

I have a question... With DST(Daylight Savings Time) starting this weekend, will the start times be affected at all? Quick response will be appreciated.

why do you still put the times only in US timezones instead of using UTC?, ar at least put the UTC time in there like in some other tourneys/challenges/thingies

what, you just discovered this?, "competitive" play now it's all med + autoloaders and speed....
HTs?, practically obsolete apart from the autoloaders (and T57 obsolesced the 50b) and the OP5
TDs?, noone wants them, except for maaaaybe one turreted TD
armor?, pfft, heat makes armor meaningless
talk about a healthy endgame ecosystem....

pretty sad state of affairs really, and i don't see WG doing anything to curb the powercreep and making every tank viable for endgame content

i'd rather prefer if they make more of those challenges/skirmishes with specific rules like "tier 9, no autoloaders allowed" or "no meds allowed" or "only TDs" or "only heavies".
They have made some in the past limiting certain specific tanks or types, don't know why they don't do it to curb the autoloader op powercreep infection.

for example, what can i do in a T95 against a amx 120, i shoot once and with the horrible accuracy probably miss or track absorb no dmg, the amx can charge me, maybe take another shot(and still survive because the T95 barely rolls above -25% maybe one every 100 shots) and then drum me with complete impunity.
heck, a 50/100 can do that and maybe even survive....
what is WG doing to CURB THAT no idea...

I smile that you added "NA qualifier winner" to your siggy. Please win something else real, and recent, before going off on power creep and comparing a T95 to facing an AMX 510 120.

Dear WOT,

Since this is our first time for challenge battle, few question would like to confirm with you guys:

*If on the first round of Battle Schedule, there is no team to fight for. Do we still need to show up for win to next round?

*And the battle time show on the web is 12.03.2013, 09:00. Is this a PST time zone or any kind of time?

Best Regards

MS06/Stevo

Hi, welcome to your first challenge!

1. If your team does not face another team, that means you have a bye. You do not need to show up to battle, but will move on to the next round automatically.

2. The battle time is always in your timezone. So for me, a battle time of 21:00 is 9:00 pm EST.

Good luck :)

Most of the teams have a bye tonight and don't play until Wed. If your team had a "---" in place of the other team name, then the challenge doesn't start until Wed for you :)
