PST is pacific standard time.

EST is eastern standard time. Searching online for a time zone converter will help you further if you need it.

For future reference:

EST = Eastern Standard Time

CST = Central       "               "

MST = Mountain   "              "

PST = Pacific        "              "

Hey everyone,

 

I'm super stoked that you are all passionate about US Timezones, but if would you kindly steer this conversation back on topic of the Weekday Warfare that would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Be aware if you get into the final rounds and are tied for 16th place. you'll probably only get 500g and not 3000g (unless you do well in the finals).

Costs a lot to run one night in a tournament so don't be fooled into running two extra nights with the promise of additional rewards.

 

Please note: making the final two group stages does not guarantee 3000+ gold. Merely a chance at making the top 16 to win 3000+ gold. Please see tournament prizing for more informaiton

How about you change the wording to state the top 16 will be getting more gold and the others (who made the top 16 and had to play more days) will get nothing more.

The Prizes section on the Weekday Warfare Tournament page has always made this abundantly clear. Please see screenshot below:

Thank you for the picture, but nothing is "abundantly clear".

The post does not mention that you will be taking the top 16 to the finals (including ties) and that some in the top 16 will not end up in the top 16 and will receive no additional rewards for the extra days they must battle. 2 extra days of battles for zero reward is not worth the effort and is a bit of a rip off.

I just feel it's not clear (and so does my team and two other teams I have spoken with) and that you should consider making sure everyone knows the entire rules before others fall victim to what our group has. Also, having anyone battle for another day or two should justify an additional reward of some amount. Giving them all 1000g for attending the final two days would be a little more fair.

I made a post here to make sure other knew the exact rules related to the finals and feel you should amend the wording to ensure all who attend are fully informed.

It is clearly stated, that playing on Monday to Wednesday in a Weekday Warfare is what creates the entry pool for the Top16 (and any tied at 16th place).    If a team only wants the minimum Top 16 gold win your games Mon.-Wed., then do not show up on Thursday & Friday at all.  However if your team wants a chance to earn the top prize of 10,000 gold you better create a team that shows up to play on Thursday & Friday.  That's a pay out gap of 7000 gold for playing two days, depending how teams do.

 

Participation gold(?), then go play a 'Stand To' tournament if that your goal and enjoy the lesser gold rewards on a per day basis.

Weekday Warfare tournament's on a daily basis pay out more gold overall already without a 'participation' gold bonus.  It's call 'earning' it.

I am not asking for "participation" gold. But when a tournament runs 2 days, pays people 500g for doing ok, then makes some teams play for two more days of the tournament with a chance at making no more money, why bother. The cost of a tournament on the players is greater than the reward but at least a little gold is some compensation for your time and expense. When doubling the days you will be playing in the tournament, they should at least pay the teams that participate in the finals more than those who do not.

That is 1/2 of what I am pointing out here. The other 1/2 is that they should change the wording to eliminate the confusion.

And if you think anything WG writes is "clearly stated" than you obviously have never read their instructions and rules to anything they run.

Looking for a fun team who also shows up.  I always show up.  Need a guaranteed backup with tanks?  Look no farther.

 

We missed the Thursday finals by 2 games.  Even shorthanded many games.
