All active tournaments can be found by searching the Tournaments Home Page. Interested in what we having coming up? Check out the July  calendar!

 

 

A player has two ways to register for the Platournaments! When you create the team, make sure that you are using the correct registration!

  • Register as a Team!
    • Registration works the same as normal.
    • Team captain makes a team and recruits players to join.
    • A complete team has 3 - 4 players.
    • Captains do not need to submit their team; all teams with the minimum number of players will be accepted.
    • The team is now ready to fight once the tournament starts!
  • Register as a Solo player or as part of a Party!
    • A party is a group of players that does not meet the minimum team size requirements.
    • Create a team. Teams do not need to be confirmed; all players will be accepted for the Solo/Party Registration.
    • Once registration has closed, the player will be combined with other solo player(s) and/or a party to form a complete team
    • After registration has closed, players are encouraged to check back to find their new team!

 

So how do you register as a solo player? It's easy! When you create a team, there will be Registration Option with a drop down menu. Simply switch from Register Team to Register Solo and you are ready to go!

Attack/Defense doesn't play very well in the round robin format, unless a team plays once on attack and once on defense :)

Dance, could you please make it so that players without battles and / or without the Tier of tank yet owned needed for the Platournaments can't sign up?

 

My last team ended up with a player with 0 battles. Needless to say, he / she / it didn't show up.

As of now, our tools don't work that way. It would need to be a manual process after registration closes to determine who owns/owned a tank of the correct tier and/or to see which player(s) have 0 battles. I may be able to figure out something, but I'll take time (if it's possible). Sorry.

I'm sorry if you feel insulted and these are "normal" tournaments. If you mean the Skirmish, Weekday Warfare.....those sadly will not be returning anytime soon, if at all.

Why does WG want to actively kill their game?


Might as make every tier 10 worth $5 in the shop and allow credits to be converted to gold 

10c = 100000g

Dance, will the Platournaments or any other regularly scheduled tournaments have occasional additional restrictions like the Skirmishes used to, such as no more than one tank from each nation or no more than two of any tank type?

 

I really enjoyed the varying format of the Skirmishes, particularly that aspect - any chance those features will be carried forward?

Thanks dance. But I beg to differ.

 

WG: you better bring those normal tourneys back. Because these ARE NOT.

Why? you know it. But let's recap: these are WAY worse in terms of prizing and time demanded.

It may have fancy names but that's pretty much it. And we are not as stupid as you have assumed, to take them as a new shinny great thing that is thrown upon us.

Don't underestimate us, WG, do not insult us.

You cut the payouts. You may have done other things as well -on purpose, to masquerade this-

 

Fix it WG, or your WoT will disappear, only at a faster pace

Dance,  

 

We already know WG does not listen to players.  Look at maps with corridors and no bushes to passive spot, look at gold rounds, look at MM and look at arty.  All easily fixed, but instead WG created a sandbox to distract players and further break the game by rebalancing tanks that dont need it because WG DOES NOT LISTEN TO PLAYERS AND DOES NOT CARE WHAT WE THINK!!

 

Your job Dance is to drive players out of tourneys and into CWs by reducing payouts and increasing our time involved because WG feels CWs brings in more cash just like this push forcing players to platoon. 

 

We know that so please dont insult our intelligence.

If WG cant program the game to do something this simple WG might want to contract out the computer programming to another company.

 

There are only 350 players in the tourneys and MUCH less going through team selection.  WG made 500 MILLION last yr but wont pay someone min wage to do this simple task that would only take a couple of hrs per tournament?  That is really sad.

So basically the entire post about the change and you looking at the results of the last half of June and all of July and deciding if you where gonna bring them back was all a lie. Good to know.

 

See this is some of the crap we hate about WG, they're never [edited]up front and honest with us, don't string us along saying oh maybe they'll be back at the end of July, just tell us you wanted to cut the gold and those tournaments are never coming back. I'd respect the company a hell of a lot more.

 

Anyway thank you for the information, now I know I can uninstall the game at the end of the month once I hit 500k.

These current tournaments take up WAY too much time i could be doing something else with, spending credits the entire time, to earn a "prize" thats worth as much credits as i spent.  I will not be doing these tournaments again, unless the prizes start becoming worth my time again.

Poor payouts 4 time spent

Guest_scarybolts_* #19 Posted Jul 08 2016 - 16:03

  • Guest

Agreed to the poor payouts, CW is a joke and a waste of time for most clans as they are dominated at ALL tiers by the already existing top clans.  Yes Yes I know what these clans and its cronies will say, you have to get your clan to that caliber.  I cant really speak on the new tournament format because I looked at it and there is no way for me to be able to play that much AND get so little return.  Quite honestly I have thought of uninstalling, yeah yeah you stat mongers lol ssshhhhh, because the only format I enjoy is the LEAGUE format and ranked TB's, though both have been off the radar for some time now with ZERO explanation other than "were trying to work some things out" but that is for a different part of the forum.  

WIth that being said, no need to be so salty about everything, really doesnt help get any results being a jerk.

Well I agree with RECON. Yes, it's poor payouts. 

 

But here's my argument, and the reason I say WG is insulting us

a) It's WORST than the normal tourneys (Stand-To, Skirmish) in terms of frequency, prizes and length. (Here I outlined some examples)

b) And they are masquerading the payouts cuts with: name changes, false arguments about redistribution (at least, what I can remember right now)

 

So WG is giving us less and they say -some of it- it's in response to "feedback". Which is a lie from all that can be read about this -unilateral- changes.

And we won't allow it.
