Due to the number of participants, we will be running 2 playoffs. Please note the prizing is identical for either playoff.

Some randomly put together team gets in but mine doesn't?

This is non-sense.

I am a little put off by this skirmish. Registration started on April 24th. Yet there was nothing on WoT's page until the evening of April 25th. We only had a day to put together a team. We get said team together, of all clan members and not random pubbies, and we get declined because we did not apply fast enough.


First of all, WG should be giving clans and everyone else enough time to put a team together. Secondly, if we don't apply until close to the closing time because WG didn't post the info until 24 hours out, we should not be the ones penalized for it.


This is the 3rd skirmish/tournament in a row that my clan has attempted to or has participated in that something was screwed up on WG's end. Not giving me a lot of faith in the system guys.

Skirmish information normally goes up on the forums sometime Wednesday afternoon/evening (I am Eastern time zone, so it's Wed evening for me). At that point, even if a news article isn't posted, all the information and registration is available in the tournament section of the Portal.

If you are interested in doing the weekly skirmishes, I would strongly suggest checking the forums and/or Tournament page on Wednesdays; that should  give you enough time to get together a team and submit it before the Friday deadline.

There wasn't a link to the sign up until Hellsau posted it.  Also, my team bugged out, I applied my team less than a minute after the last member joined and I ended up with only four.  I had to ask lord_faquad to reopen the team but it send me to the back of the queue.

I'll point out that the only reason I had that link, and indeed the only reason I was even able to enter a team in this skirmish, was because I edited the "305" in Skirmish 16's URL to "306". Five person max team sizes is ridiculous, and there's no mechanism to limit or punish teams who don't even intend to participate in the skirmish. Skirmishes need some sort of round-robin qualifier round to cut out the teams who don't intend to bring adequate tanks - I would not be surprised to see tier 5 premiums brought to this one, for instance. With only 128 spots for 300+ teams that applied within a day of registration opening, a team getting in that had no intention of attempting to win is a shame.

Oh well, let's hope there won't be any teams that technical in the first round.

I completely agree with you. We are a clan that is trying to get more into the skirmishes/tournaments/challenges and put together proper, "adequate" teams... Well, all I can say is the way registration was handle here is a little discouraging.

Pointing out the obvious isn't clever, people know what they have to do, they're complaining because they don't like it.

Repeating the obvious isn't clever either.

Actually, it seems as though people did NOT know what to do, which is why Millard, Silver_Fox and myself pointed out the obvious. Perhaps it is confusing to people new to skirmishes, but there is never a link to the tournament page posted on the forum article; that is why I suggested going directly to the tournament portal if a news article wasn't posted on the home page.

Other than complaining about inadequate time to apply (which is false, there was 48 hr to apply same as every other week) what issues are people trying to get changed? Because I'm confused and can't find anything else....

It took me a while to be able to quickly find a skirmish, but I just go straight to tournaments when I get home on Wed. evening. Now that I know the "last week's URL +1" trick, it will be even easier.

Rounding up players is the hard part sometimes, it depends on who is online from the clan when I am trying to drum up support. Our team for Skirmish 18 is already full, but last week, we didn't have enough until Thursday evening, by which time 62 other teams had already been entered. Other weeks, we can't even field enough players to form up.
