Are the times on the tournament page EST or PST? Or is it assumed its EST unless it says PST like some tournaments have shown since the portal change.

The times at the top of the page are in your time zone.

 

Times under Regulations - Schedule are listed first as Pacific time, then as Eastern time.

New Tournament page isn't as "friendly" as it once was.  Perhaps some improvements will come later.  One, if I may, would be to allow the Capt of the team appoint another player Capt in the event of a real life circumstance (comes up).  Also, weekend times and registration aren't easy to find as before.  It used to be weekend teams' registration was by Thursday but it now looks like it is the Sunday before, right?  Or am I missing something?

I see no regulation page as per how many of what can be used. Or is it saying you can bring 5 heavies or 5 TD's or 5 of anything as long as it does not total more than 20???

A few complains about the new tournament system.

 

  1. No longer can I instantly populate my screen with 100 teams and ctrl-f to find the one I need to join.
  2. Links to teams appear to be broken.
  3. Annoying notifications at 12, 2 and 30 minutes before Skirmish which repeat themselves.

This ^

 

Especially #1. Nothing new or fancy needs to be created (no reason to get bogged down into the details) heck you don't even need to create a search field if there isn't the resources to handle working on this, most users now adays know enough to use CTRL+F to do a find on a page. All that would be needed is just make a team list and members for each team viewable, 100 at a time and pagination, and perhaps filter between approved and pending status if it's not too much of an ask.

 

In fact a list of teams and its members all on one page would be more desirable then a search field in some cases to more easily filter through teams (pending and approved) so that you can see what teams still need people that you can contact to potentially join. Not sure how so many of the previous system features were lost in this new iteration, but definitely a step backward in many ways. The developers should have looked at the existing system, taken from it the best parts and built upon those ideas, not thrown the baby out with the bathwater.

 

TLDR: Essentially WG just needs to have their web development team look at the old system in terms of functionality (which should have happened beforehand) and it would solve multiple issues and shouldn't take long to implement, not sure how this version went to production, but it is what it is. Now we'll find out how quickly and accurately things can be fixed?

If the captain needs to be changed, you can always send an email to tournaments@wargamingamerica.com or send me a forum PM with what change needs to be made. I will also pass this suggestion on to the devs.

 

No. Unfortunately, we use tools in ways that they were never intended. One of the....side effects that we weren't aware of is that once the tournament starts, teams can no longer get to the registration page, even if registration is still open. So for now, registration will have to be closed on Sunday. If teams want to make changes or submit their team between Sunday and Thursday, they can send in an email to tournaments@wargamingamerica.com and I will be more than happy to help.

 

The long term solution may be to separate the weekend playoffs from the Skirmish, and form their own tournament. Or, to make a different tournament that only runs Fri-Sat-Sun (or even Sat-Sun).

Yes, you can bring five of any tank type, as long as it is at or below 20 tier points. If there are any restrictions, it will be under "Additional Information" and/or in the Regulations section.

1. I'm trying to see if a search bar can be added to make finding teams easier. Barring that, I would suggest trying to get a link to the team page for now :)

2. What do you mean?

3. I've already asked if there is a way to tone down the notifications. They are sending out one before every battle. For the group stage, that means 7 notifications per round.

Okay I think I was just sent the wrong team link by the captain...

 

Honestly if anything, an email notification 2 hours before would be adequate. I'm not sure most players are even aware WoT has a notification system...

Better yet, if there's a way it should be optional. 

Either way it should be disabled until it's fixed. It's not even reporting the correct ETA.

And, even if it works it's really annoying, like the "new" notification icon flashing in yellow for every little thing happening in the game

(I said it in Skirmish IX, but I guess it was lost due to the mishap chatter on Wednesday)

Is there going to be a "bracket" or everyone just show up at given start time? Seems somewhat crowed then.

Hi! Teams will be separated into different groups.

 

For the Group Stage rounds, each group (or bracket) will be a maximum of 8 teams. For the Playoffs, each bracket will be a maximum of 16 teams.

There seems to be something wrong: the tournament page says there're 117 confirmed teams but the standings list only 103...

Because there are teams that will only participate in the weekend playoffs. They are still confirmed, but don't play until Friday :)

Actually that is only part of the difference.

 

I've looked closer and I have found some team that have registered for the entire week and are counted towards the 117 but have apparently been declined - e.g. BattleDHOX. 

 

It looks like there's no way to check the status of that team. The only clue is that their battle schedule is empty... They shouldn't be counted as confirmed at all. Also it would have been better to show the count for the week and for the weekend separately.

 

Thanks.

What, specifically, are these XP packs (the other prize)?

The XP packs are the experience personal reserves. When you active a personal reserve, for a limited amount of time (usually two hours), you will get an increase in the amount of experience earned. For the Skirmish, I normally do the medium size reserve, although it does vary week to week.

​OK, it may the 5-50% XP bonus for 1-6 hours.

 

Thanks.

 

p.s. - I like the addition of things like this. Keep up the good work.
