There were five no-shows in my bracket this week.  I know real life happens at times, but there's clearly too many people signing up for these that make no effort to show up.  It's incredibly boring for the rest of us to just sit here through technicals for 40+ minutes.  I realize there's limited things you can do about this within the system, but I'd say on average there's 3 no-shows in any given bracket I've had and it's been getting progressively worse since the earlier 1v1 tournaments.

Good game all, but I there was way to many no shows, In my bracket (148) I only had 3 actual battles, and also faced 1 bot who just sat on the hill. The bot was username brandonalexis (can't complain about all the afkers cause schedules do change but the bot I just find annoying)

What are the payouts for 8th place lol? You players are awfully rude to the admins. I would ban you for life if I could. Dance does a great job.

He might have crashed; unless he lost all his matches to real players in which case it would seem the poor attendance has become so known that people are just botting through the technicals for free gold every week.  They might not be able to punish no-shows, but it would be worth checking with the other guys in your bracket to see if they all have replays of the suspected botter not moving the entire tournament.  Botters I would hope they can actually ban.

Yes, hecka good matches....   the only issue I had was that one schmuck brought a T26E4 Super Pershing so should I file a complaint even though they finished not in the top 3.  Then there were two poor sods came in with tier 7 heavies.  yikes sorta like taking a baseball bat into a sword fight. I hope a good time was had by all.  I know I learned.

3rd place for me. Lost to the guy who got 1st place. 50 100 seemed to be boss. Take a hit, unload clip. Voila. :)

 

My loss was to another 50 100 he had BiA and food. So his loader beat mine by a second or two. All that matters.

Our tools don't allow us to restrict to only one tank type, which is why we have a dispute process. I can understand that it is frustrating to face a team that breaks the rules and need to do the dispute process; however it's either that or to never have special restrictions. And last time I mentioned that, some player's said they would prefer restrictions, even needing to deal with disputes.

OK! I KNOW  I TOOK 2nd PLACE in the Heavy 1v1 Throw Down.

 

STOP SPAMMING ME BOTH IN GAME AND ON WOT PAGE!  :P

 

Seriously, I came out of a battle to find 20 messages that I took second in the 1v1.

 

As I'm typing this I got 5 messages MORE that I took second in the 1v1.

 

Can you fix this obvious glitch ASAP please?

Well I had a great time!

 

I ran in the tier 6 on Thursday - 4 technical victories (no shows) - came in 2nd in my awesome T-34-85

 

And I ran in the 1 v 1 heavy on Saturday - 5 no shows, the guy with the 8200+ PR bailed after he lost his first match (wow, just wow) but that let me go on to win so too bad tough guy!

 

Thanks for the tournaments!
