Oh god, why can't you guys have these playoffs and rounds on the weekends?

I can't do these things during school nights, and I'm always missing out on these great opportunities.

So is it Encounter or Standard, you have both modes listed.  I'm going to guess Standard since Lakeville doesn't have an Encounter mode.

So teams need to register without knowing the full battle schedule so they can plan around possible time conflicts? Seems oh so typical of WG's thoughtfulness.

Yup, all the postings say both standard and encounter.

I thought the battle of kursk was the largest tank battle in history, or was I wrong?

So...

There will be battles fought 3 weeks ago if it really means April, but if it means May, there will be a playoff round on the 13th of May when there aren't supposed to be any rounds May 12-14? I'm extremely confused here.

And the battle will be both standard and encounter mode on Lakeville? Lakeville has an encounter mode? Does that mean there will be 3 bases? ... lolwut. (No I'm not that stupid, I'm just confused.)

1. A little help?
2. Please announce these tournaments an extra week in advance to allow people more time to plan.

The contest are great for the players, but I think the game servers needs the money the most. I want to say I mean nothing personal to the players and a thought came to me when we have over 28000 players online and how slow the servers get, and at 35000 players it is double the lag for players. and  I beleave and hope you feel the same way we need more servers to take the load off the game, so we can have better game play for ever one... it is not that I bashing the contest, but just a suggestion to WG whats needed most at present time...........CHEERS

IIRC Prohorovka was, though that one is like a sub-battle of kursk so eh.

Prizes are in gold, not real money. The announcement on the front page makes this a bit more clear.

Darn it peoples! Atleast show some earlyness for us EDT people! So have some battle that people in the EDT zone can participate in! Some of these sound really fun and I'm sure you people in War Gaming would hate to miss it because it's late.
