This would be much more interesting than Hetzers Spamming HEAT: the Tournament, but sadly I assume this is an error.

Dance, bringing a tier 3 TD would be acceptable right?

I have evil intent and it's parked in my garage.

There is no minimum tier requirement as far as I've seen, someone brought a Matilda yesterday in my group and did well.

Ofc I wish the tier wasn't 4, Hetzer derps incoming.

I can't think of a good tier 3 TD that would outperform a tier 4 TD... especially on this map.

 

I might try using the Somua SAu 40. Imagine that.

Pak 40 would outspot everything.

Thats the only good use for it. But this isnt a large open map full of bushes.

Most engagements are in close quarters, Unless you have the gun elevation to camp spawn, which the Pak 40 doesn't.

With camo net and binocs with a full camo crew on it, there's a fairly good chance you can outspot and get a free hit or two on the opponent on the hills at the start.  Only takes 3 pens to kill a tier 4 TD.

I hope they change the tier, or this 1 vs. 1 is gonna be lousy.

 

Tier 4 TD is dominated by the Hetzer, and Mittengard makes it impossible to out manuver them.

​Agree 4 is kinda a lousy tier for TD's 1v1.

5 would have been a LOT better.

But I love the lower tiers anyway.

this could be a lot better with w better prize.

Like a low tier premium tank of some sort. 

Rare would be best. Not every one does clan wars or league play, yet everyone should be given an opportunity for the same IN GAME prizes.

I'm a HUGE fan of the match up melee tourney's.

Here's another idea. An open tier tourney where you can bring ANY type tank you like, so long as it's in the same tier.

I.E. tier 5 TD vs tier 5 Med. ect. etc.

I'm repost this I have in another thread because I think it's relevant.

 

Agree the payouts are not worth the time.

Example...I signed up for the 1v1 tier 4 td tourney on sat....thought it'd be fun.

TOP PRIZE- 500g.

 

Ok so everyone will be bring Hetzers most likely. In 4 yrs of tanking I've never owned a Hetzer.

So I invest in:

1 Hetzer 127,000 credits

 

Upgrades:

Tier 5 Gun - 28,000 credits

Radio- 33,600 credits

Engine- 9,120 credits

Tracks- 4,370 credits

Subtotal: 75,090 credits

 

Equipment:

​Gun Rammer: 200,000 credits

Coated Optics: 500,000 credits

Small spall liner: 50,000 credits

Vents: 50,000 credits

Subtotal: 800,000 credits​

 

Premium camo paint:​ ​ 30,000 credits (one week)

 

Total credits invested: ​905,090 credits 

​Now since I'm not going to be stupid enough to go into a tourney with stock crew....I'm going to have to retrain my Female crew from my Stugg IV. and convert them back after this is over.
 
Crew training:
@200 gold per crew member = 1000g x2 2000g.
2000g = $10.34 USD - REAL WORLD MONEY (Now since I'm not a super uniScum in a top CW clan or a top "pro" player in league I have to buy my gold with real cash instead of freeload off WG)
 
4+ hrs of playing 3 sets of Personal Reserves used....and at last my new Hetzer is ready for the tourney on Saturday.
 
​And IF I win WG is going to give me 500g. YES! this is totally worth my time.

Like I said, with lousy gun elevation, you cant camp spawn and shoot from it, although the north spawn has less of an incline. It still would be difficult to shoot anyone untill they get close.

@310thCopperhead, why would you ever in life waste your female crew in a prem tank like stug4 when you can put crew of any german TD in it since its prem, wasting the exp to train it to Stug4 instead of any TD is pretty dumb lol, since you could train it even to Grille 15 and put it in the Stug4 without any penalty.

@dance210 the copy paste is strong today dance, did you see that you put "Run into a player that brought something other than a medium tank?", anyway this tournament will be like that ------> Hetzers everywhere spamming HEAT, yup not funny at all, you guys could at least disable prem ammo in tournaments, that way the matchs would be more funny. Its not that hard to do anyway. =P

1. don't retrain them back to the stug, it is a premium so by training them for a hetzer they will be able to play both the hetzer and stug without penalty
2. you could use credits to retrain them to hetzer so you don't use any gold, they lose a bit of training of course so you have to make a choice

you guys are missing the ENTIRE point. We are getting HOSED.

 

WG is being cheap with the payouts. I don't expect league money...but damn something besides a measly 500 gold.

A special camo. Something to make it actually WORTH the time to do.
