So WG is only going to do like 1 major tournament for the whole month and only 16 teams will get gold? What garbage this is. You guys were hyping it up about the "big" tournament you will have for every month, so we all thought it was going to be like march madness where you have a lot chances to earn some gold, but looks like only a mere 16 teams will get gold after 2 weeks of play.

 

The new tournament format was already getting a lot of negative feed backs, and looks like will be getting a lot more with the the reward and the time you have to put in. The rewards don't compensate for the new format changes at all.

Members of my team will not be participating in this event, in protest. Echoing what the other tournament teams in our community have already said, we want the regular Weekday Warfare and Skirmishes back!

Don't know what the special prize is. It was supposed to be confirmed by now, but for some reason there was a delay :/

 

I will be on the team! Other than that, I'm going to be recruiting around the office, so if there's anyone that y'all would like to see, lemme know. I'll try to get them ;)

 

Rampage hasn't played WoT PC for awhile -- it'd be nice to get him involved.

We are going to participate, just this time and only because we need tournaments for play... but, like other say... Skirmish are better. Gold for group stage... better playoffs... better rewards... Here you win ZERO playing 3 days... July come with less gold in all the ways.
And the format of monday, wed, friday... mmm dificult for a lot of people. Monday, tuesday, wed... was better. We dont care about any article o spot about the players o special reward... we know that cant reach good instances of playoffs with this format. Good luck to all and we hope that skirmish return in august.

 

See you on the other side in the final playoffs. :trollface:

So soccer tournament v2? Were if you have a bad night your effort is for naught. Well I will not be playing this game for a month, heck if skirmishes dont come back I really dont see myself keeping the game installed. Tournaments like this are not with the time or hassle, making it so a majority of people get nothing for there effort is not a good way to get people involved in tournaments.

Funny to see people whining about prizes in an optional tournament.  Don't like them, don't play in the tournament.

This is not an 'optional tournament' except in that all tournaments are optional. This has more to do with the fact that all the big tournaments were unceremoniously removed for one month (maybe forever) with no real explanation other than 'trying something new'. Here is the thing, the "new" isn't worth it. 

 

The Skirmish tournament was 'anyone that was halfway skilled could get something'. This is 'you better be unicum to get anything'. 

I don't understand why they think that Personal Reserves are a real tournament reward. The time I am spending on the tournament could be spent grinding thus gaining the same or more credits/exp/free exp.

 

This is why people are upset and frustrated. We feel this is a huge step backwards. 

If WGNA thought that the previous gold rewards were too high they could've told us that and perhaps we would be more understanding, instead they have told us that that the gold rewards were fine.

So we are left scratching out heads and understandably annoyed at what has happened to our favorite tournaments. 

 

Hopefully, they will bring back the favorites.

God this is [edited]pathetic, I don't like to brag on forums, but c'mom, as someone said, this is the so HYPED TOURNAMENT FOR REAAAAAL BRRUUUUZZ???

 

No gold for group stage? 16 teams winning gold from like, 200 or more? God I can't even start on how much pathetic this is.

 

You better change all back on august, or everyone will start leving this game, and I assure will, (at least on my part) trash talk this game to the infinity!

 

I will personally contact every streamer, reviewer, social media accounts, EVERYTHING, to show everyone how [edited] up this game has become if this is the kind of crap we will get from now on...

why people complaining about wargaming giving out less free gold its not like they have to

 

WG made 500 MILLION last year and WG was a MUCH friendlier and customer service oriented company with WAY more giveaways when the game first came out and they were all poor than now that they are all rich.

Well, that's an idea. The problem is that WG is gonna look at the numbers (players and teams) and they'll have an "argument" to keep them

March Mapness was great. Memorial weekend tourney was pretty good.

 

Summer play is just a joke.

No, they dont. But if they are going to take away a whole lot of popular tournaments and then replace them with a much smaller number of unpopular tournaments shouldn't that be discussed? Clearly they want tournaments. They have always stated that they want them to be a success.

I've been a fan and a participant since you started competitive, non cw play. Just gotta say, this tourney, very underwhelming, bordering on sucking.

Not worth the time to play this tourney. I am pretty sure this won't have much participation in long run. Only purples will play and get the top 16 slots for gold. All others will loose interest in this tourney pretty soon. If you wanna save some gold then your plan is perfect WG.
