Hey dance, just so I don't miss it: there isn't a Skirmish for this week, right?

 

And a little off topic, but tourney related, the "new" interface is final? Because the one filter that's really useful is not available: by type of tourney (Skirmish/Stand To/...) 

It's unnecessary hard to find one at times. I mean, I don't know if the tourney I'm looking for it's 3v3 or 8v8, I know I wanna play the Skirmish or another specific one.

And what is Category, btw?

 

I know this has been somewhat covered, but this specific part I don't recall, sorry

Hi spedkey,

 

Skirmish XXI runs from May 30 - June 5.

 

Skirmish XXII runs from June 6 - June 12.

 

The tourney interface is a work in progress. Rumor had it that eventually we may be able to create our own tags, best suited for our region. Whether that function comes soon or soon™ is unknown. In the meantime, I try to have the most current tournaments with registration open set to "featured." This means that they should show up as red and on the first page when you click on "Tournaments" on the portal.

 

I find the best way to find a specific tournament (e.g. all Stand-To tournaments), is to click on "Tournament Search" from the tournament homepage. In the upper right corner, you should see a tournament search box. If you type in the tournament name you are looking for (Stand-To) it will show all our Stand-To tournaments. It may not be the best system, but it should allow you to quickly find the tournament that you are looking for.

dance, a little question... WG never think in put all the info of tournaments inside the game? That can be amazing. A window or something where you can see the battles, times, players of your team, positions... Just an idea, what do you think?

I think it would be amazing if there was tournament information within the client! A calendar of events, tournament registration, all the info a player would need. Sadly that's not something I can dev, so all I can do is suggest it and hope it gets put in soon™.

Edit: My first communication was garbled. Here goes again.

 

Questions about how the maps work.

 

First, I assume from the information ("A map is randomly chosen for each round.") that the same map will continue throughout an evening of battles. Is that correct?

 

Second, when will we know the map for the evening? Will we know ahead of time so that we can plan our tanks accordingly (like, when the first match pops)? Or will we not know until the first match actually begins?

 

Thanks.

Why are there only 2 reserves? With a rotating map pool you would ideally want a good variety of tank lineups and cutting the reserves to just 2 really hurts the teams that don't have many tanks available per player. Could we get it bumped up to 3?

 

 

Looking for a team, PM me if interested.

Looking for Skirmish team, for perm or semi-perm.

 

I have played in more than 30 Skirmishes and 70+ tourneys in total. Many of those in the last eight months were with other Rel players. I've captained the main Rel2/Aux tourney team for the last six months. But their focus is now shifting from tourneys to CW, so I'm looking for a new team. Last weekend my team came first in our group for the MDM for tiers 5,6, & 8 and top 10% of prize winners, as well we won our playoff bracket in last week's Skirmish. I don't mind being an alt or benchwarmer, will ready up & be there for the team (though usually I've played, but however I can help us to win), and can practice before the Skirmishes too.

 

For Skirmish 22 the suitable tanks (with sixth sense) I have include: Chaffee, KV-1S, T-67 and Luchs for the t4. Plus 10+ more tier 5s. I have suitable meta tanks for tiers 3 to 8, at least what the good teams usually use.

 

Please forum message if you have space on a suitable team. Thanks.

I have said this before , if all you are looking for is the

blue and purples... you are missing out on good players.

The greens are a vast untapped pool of players

to round out your teams. I don't know why , at least as

a filler / stand by , so many teams would not pick up

a player like me. You would find that we ( mostly but not all)

really want to play and we pay attention more then the

players with ultra high wn8/win rate. I really enjoy the game, as

many do , I have several tanks with much higher  wn8/win rate

then my average like many greens. I may be talking to a wall

because you don't want to be seen running with greens but

I see teams go in with 1 or no reserves just because the wn8

dose not " make the grade".  Just how/what I see going on.

I'll answer your post for you m8.

Your first point is if that people are only looking for blues and purples they are missing out on good players (greens), could be they are, but there's reasons why everyone wants the blues and purples and not the greens.

The biggest one is consistency, I was on a team about 7 months ago (at the time I had been running with them for around 8 months) and we needed a spot filled for a tournament so we picked up a green overall light blue recent player just to fill up the reserves and didn't expect to play him, well turns out some of our guys where gone a couple nights and we had to play the filler guy and he ended up doing ok, so we invited him back for the next week (a tier 5 tournament) and to be fair he consistently did more damage than the rest of us sporting purple / dark purple recent, however the tournaments started going up in tiers, tier 7 where he played like he had no idea what was going on and repeatedly went the wrong way even after we had gone over the strat, then there was a tier 8 tournament where he did just as poor as the tier 7, the straw that broke the camels back was another tier 8 tournament where he drove his heavy tank up onto of a ridge took a hit from an enemy IS-3, pulled back without returning fire, waited until the enemy IS-3 was reloaded and crested the ridge again this time to be tracked and damaged from the enemy IS-3's shot, it was at this point that the rest of us realized he didn't have a repair kit or the repair skill on his tank, so he was perma tracked and killed costing us a match.

 

Now as I said he did outperform us all in the tier 5 tournament but he did terrible in anything above tier 5, meanwhile the dark blues and purples and dark purples can perform well at every tier, not just one or two here or there like the pick up player could, that's not to say even the best players don't make mistakes (no one is immune to making mistakes) but they are generally much more aware of the map and their surroundings and much more consistent.

This isn't the only time it's happened to teams I have been on by the way, he was just the most memorable one that I felt like using as an example.

 

Another reason why you might not get picked is because a lot of teams have a set lineup of guys they use only adding new people when someone isn't going to make it for that week or when the amount of players raises, and even then they usually already have people in mind to fill those spots.

With people not filling their reserve slots there is no reason to fill your reserve slots if you know everyone is going to always be there, the weekday warfare team I am on could run with just 3 people (and never have to fill our reserve slot) because we never miss a day or a match.

 

Lastly, the teams that stack themselves up with purples, and blues with purple recent are in it to win, as far as a lot of them see it greens are not good enough to play to at the level that they play at to consistently win or at least place near the top of the tournaments they play, I tend to agree with that sentiment, that's not to say it can't be done, Commander Jay used to win a ton of tournaments back in the day and he used to use a lot of green guys, but it's just a lot simpler to get people whom are already great and know what to do than to hold their hand and walk them through every little part of the strat and what to do if something doesn't go according to plan.

It maybe due to the perception of green consistency in pub battles, rather than our ability to play better when there is coordinated teamplay in tourneys, and also SH and CW. As well since many of these tourneys are at the tiers we more often usually play (5-8), rather than X, we can perform at those, but not always at higher tiers. Though those tourneys aren't as common as low & mid-tier.

 

I'm also still looking for a new team or alt role for next week.
