Tier & Point Limits

Teams may deploy no more than 3 members in each match. A team must field a selection of tanks based on the below tier limits.

 

  • Heavy: 6
  • Medium: 6
  • TD: 6
  • Light: 6
  • SPG: 6
  • 18 points maximum

 

The encounter battle mode will be used for this tournament.

 

Victory Conditions

Group Stage

  • Battles begin every 15 minutes.
  • 3 points are granted for a win, 1 point for a tie, 0 points for a loss.
  • Each battle will last 10 minutes max.
  • The number of teams advancing to subsequent group stages is published on the tournament page after close of registration.

 

Draws at the end of each Group Stage are broken using the following criteria (and in the following order):

  1. Head to Head
  2. Head to Head Against Group Leader
  3. Opponent Strength - final rank of opponents that have defeated your team
  4. Complete Draw - all teams move advance

 

Playoffs

  • Teams are seeded into the playoffs according to the win ratio in Group Stage 3, Group Stage 2 and Group Stage 1, in that order of priority.
  • Each battle will last 10 minutes max.
  • The winner of each round will be determined as the first to 2 victories out of 5 maximum battles.
  • If neither team wins twice, the playoff round is considered a draw.
  • If teams draw after 5 maximum battles, a *one game playoff determines the winner out of 3 additional battles.

*One game playoff does not apply to championship. Unlimited battles, instead of one game playoff, determines champion if necessary.

 

Schedule

The full schedule is subject to change once the final team count has been determined at the close of registration. Rounds will begin at 6 pm PDT (9 pm EDT).

The WGLNA Gold League (Season 4) live final is free - all you have to do is show to claim a seat! :popcorn:

 

What we're offering here is a trip to the live final. And throwing in some passes to PAX Prime as well which will be the talk of Seattle that weekend.

 

You can find more info about the WGLNA Gold League live final location here.

The tournament is designed to award three winners a trip to our Gold League finals. And we can only send players that currently reside in Canada or the United States. This is the only reason for the 'resident' eligibility requirements.

 

Keep in mind that several competitive events will still be held next weekend in spite of this contest:

 

-Skirmish 30

-WGL Format Test

-Clan Wars Invitational

Why watch when you can do any of the activities on your own.

Ok, i'll say it outright as you missed it. People enjoy different things in life. Some like to watch and others like to participate. Different strokes for different folks.

well a few reasons. one, you learn a lot by watching those greater than you. two, it can be really interesting to see what sort of crazy things the pros can come up with... you dont watch any pro sports? Why watch movies when you could just go make your own, right?
