Skirmishes now have three days of group play (Monday-Wednesday) followed by a playoff (Friday-Sunday). Teams can choose to play only in the weekend playoff or participate in group play for better seeding and greater prizing.

 

After completing group play, a standings table will sort all teams across all groups based on points earned against points possible. Prizes are awarded at completion of group play to teams finishing in the top half of the standings. These teams qualify for the Alpha Playoff. All remaining teams qualify for the Bravo Playoff.

 

Alpha Playoff

  • This playoff consists of the top 50% of group play teams who will play for a larger prize pool. Group play performance will determine playoff seeding.

 

Bravo Playoff

  • This playoff consists of all remaining teams and includes teams registering solely for the weekend. These teams will compete for a smaller prize pool and the playoff brackets are not seeded.

 

Both the Alpha & Bravo Playoffs will use multiple brackets holding a maximum of 16 teams. This means multiple winners are awarded prizing for their standing in their respective bracket.

 

Teams and players may only register once for the skirmish.

Clicking "Tournament Page" leads to Skirmish 13's page... :hiding:

At least on the main website. The link here works fine.

I can see a skilled team of Matildas, Hetzers, and a good Arty and scout rolling through this Skirmish

That is what I am hoping to capitalize upon with my own Matilda - but I need a team that needs a 100% crew/upgraded Matilda.  Any takers?

Skirmishes/Tournaments etc. are always on NA East

Guess going to the tournament page - which they linked - is too much trouble?

 

(And even if it was linked to Skirmish 13 before the link was fixed, it would not have been difficult to have gone to look it up).

Great, another tournament that starts at 11pm  for us on the east coast. We need west coast and east coast tournaments just like we have separate servers.

Unless you living in a new Canadian time zone that the rest of Canucks don't know about, isn't that 10:00pm your time?

If I was able to play in this tournament, that's not what would be ideal in my judgment given the constraints of tier/class/map/mode.

 

Just saying the Hetzer is utterly inferior to other nation's tank destroyers at tier 4. Likewise arty as a class at tier 4 is rather under-powered given the multiple alternatives given, in the categories of medium and tank destroyer.  Trouble with arty is the aim times versus its targets mobility and/or view range & camo balance. 

 

What comes to mind as a better group of tanks?

T40, M8A1, SU-85b, Alecto

T-28, Matilda

 

These particular vehicles above tend to be the main damage & tank knock out dealers, in a tier 4 meta-game presently.

Granted a common counter-move of this in organized play can be a lightning quick group of well camo'd LT's flanking distracted opponents. Question is can you get those LT's in close enough to survive and do the job? Or not?

 

Seriously why take a Hetzer if one can have a T40's view range & gun characteristics with a great gun arc, a M8A1's awesome radio range with a turret, a SU-85b's excellent camo & strong gun instead? 

 

Taking a Hetzer in one or more of the three spots TD spots, speaks of 'rookie-hood'.

Ok have a problem, I have a team "Aliens Misfits" I applied for entire tournament, says I am on the team but still says pending and when i search for my team nothing is found?

Found the problem they have me on the Bravo side? Any way this can be rectified?

Spoiler

 

Alien's Misfits is registered for the Bravo Playoffs (weekend only). The team will be accepted once registration for the Bravo Playoffs is closed.

No hope of being added to the full tournament?

That has to be a mistake on your end, as we always sign up for the Alpha tournament. The round robin group matches are a giant part of the fun of the tournament.

Of course its WGs fault as its IMPOSSIBLE that you may have accidentally signed up for the wrong tournament.

Looks like the sign-up page was borked sunday night. My team and it looks like a few others had been rejected even tough the captain submited the team.

 

So it looks like we are going to have to steal candy from bravo teams

chill my team steel wolves has players from all across north America including Newfoundland which is 4 hrs ahead of me on the west coast ... they dont complain about the time.... so like a person said along time ago " suck it up buttercup" or register for the bravo part of the tournament so you can play on the weekends instead ...

Well, according to Flashram, his team and a couple others got screwed out of the Alpha bracket too. Kind of like how we received a technical defeat 58 seconds after finishing a match a few weeks ago in another tournament.
