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!

Yay, more Platournaments! But the prizes should really be increased, dance. 1k for first, 800 for 2nd, 600 for 3rd, 400 for 4th, 200 for 5th, 100 for 6th kind of thing.

 

As it stands right now, it's about 1 hours & 40 minutes of battles, plus initial queue and prep time, so approximately a 2 hour commitment per Platournament. With random teammates, it's a lot of effort going into them for not a lot of return. And whilst I enjoy doing them, there isn't nearly as much incentive as there should be considering the effort involved. It would be a lot easier as it stands right now, to simply work 2 hours overtime and get far, far more Gold with that money than these Platournaments even come close to getting you.

 

And yes, whilst the enjoyable experience from playing the Platournaments is why we do them rather than working overtime for that Gold, there really isn't enough of a long-term incentive to play these. And considering that teammates can be random, I think you should have 5 player teams for the solo/team registration options (3 players, 2 reserves) rather than only a single reserve as full team registrations have.

 

Otherwise, the playing field is a bit biased towards the full team registration; despite the entire reason for these standing out over Stand-To's is the fact that you can have random teammates such as in Match-Up Melee, which is why these are so fun; they're a combination of Stand-To's and Match-Up Melee's. The big thing about Match-Up Melee's though, is that you could always count on having sufficient reserves to get a full team going if you contact your teammates ahead of time. All of a sudden, only having 1 reserve for 3 players, despite the teams being randomly selected, is quite a more difficult task.

 

Just my thoughts & analysis after participating in a handful of these. I've been signing up for every one so far.

 

Also, just a question - Why are there no longer early registration options for these Platournaments? Having 2 time slots to choose from was fairly convenient.

What the [edited]? 600 gold only for first, 5 teams win anything (with the 5th place team getting enough gold to move complex equip around for 3 days, big whoop de [edited]), and Lakeville encounter. 

 

Please explain the upside of this. This is the same crapthat happened with CW/stronkholds, to get any negligible amound of gold, it's a chore to participate to the point where it's borderline a second job. 

 

Chances are, the times and crapare going to be [edited] up like they were with some of the more recent tourneys. Idk what's changed, if someone else has been in charge of creating/organizing tourneys, but this is [edited] [edited]ing [edited][edited] [edited] full of [edited] [edited] [edited] with more [edited] [edited] than [edited]ing ebola and [edited] bread.

The Minsk office wanted a reduction in gold payouts for tournaments across all regions.

It was such a good idea and welcomed by the players that WG quickly got rid of it.

It looks like brackets are not randomly selected but rather grouped according to skill level.

 

Every single platourny so far has had us grouped with WOT personal rating teams averaging >8K.  

 

Will WOT please confirm if brackets no longer random?
