General Challenge Rules & Regulations:

By participating in any World of Tanks Challenge tournament, you agree to abide by all rule sets, tournament regulations, and administrative rulings.

Teams captains are responsible for their team’s conduct and their team’s full understanding of the rules.


Team names

  1. Team names must adhere to game and forum rules.
  2. Team names violating game or forum rules may result in tournament disqualification and include game bans.
  3. Tournament administration reserves the right to edit team names.


Participation Requirements

  1. All participants must log in to World of Tanks at least once before being able to register for any Challenge.
  2. There is no maximum number of teams; all teams that fit the registration criteria may participate.
  3. A team must have at least 5, and no more than 8 members to be eligible for acceptance in the challenge.



A dispute is a claim against an illegitimate result by an opponent’s violation of a written challenge rule.


Disputes must adhere to the protocol detailed below or risk having the dispute dropped by tournament administration.

  1. Disputes must be submitted immediately after battle.
  2. Disputes must be emailed to tournaments@wargamingamerica.com
  3. The email subject/title must include the word “Dispute:” followed by the name of the event for which you are filing a dispute.
  1. Disputes may only be filed by team captains or a team member listed under team’s contact details.


Disputes must include the following in the body of the email or risk having the dispute dropped by tournament administration:

  1. In-game name of the player submitting the dispute
  2. Name of the challenge
  3. Your team’s name with a link to your team’s page created for you during registration
  4. Your opponent’s team name and a link to your opponent’s team page created during registration
  5. Reason for dispute: e.g. “I would like to report the team for using a tank that was not allowed, the StuG III.”
  6. An attached replay of the disputed battle(s)


Additional notes:

  1. Opposing team captains will be alerted of the dispute by forum PM after the dispute is processed.
  2. Captains are responsible for monitoring their PM inbox.
  3. Three upheld disputes during group play reverses all scores from offending team for that round.
  4. One upheld dispute during playoffs disqualifies offending team from that round.
  5. Publicizing disputes prior to resolution is subject to penalties at tournament admin's discretion, not limited to:
    1. Disregarding the dispute
    2. Immediate team disqualification
    3. Removal of offending player from the event


Remakes & Server Issues

A server issue is any instance where the server is unable to correctly deliver the tournament battle impeding tournament progress for all teams.

  1. If server issues cause a missed battle, the battle will be rescheduled by tournament admins to reproduce the missing match. Visit the Challenge forums for the latest information.
  2. Teams must allow up to 30 minutes for a scheduled round to initiate. If the match remains missing after 30 minutes, the match will be rescheduled another day.
  3. Map settings cannot be adjusted once a special battle is initiated. Map settings become valid as they stand once a special battle initiates and are valid toward point accumulation.


Other Warnings and Disqualifications

All penalties may take into account the severity of the violation, resulting in greater consequences.

  1. Teams can be disqualified from future challenges and Wargaming tournaments for unsportsmanlike conduct including, but not limited to, foul language, racism, profanity, disrespect of an official, streamer or caster.
  2. Teams can be disqualified for intentionally use any prohibited bugs, exploits, hacks or are found to be utilizing unfair methods of competition by the tournament administration.
  3. All warnings are final. A second warning for any other infraction of the rule-set is grounds for immediate removal pending an investigation by the tournament administration.
