It's time for the Medium Throwdown! This weekend, grab your favorite tier VII medium tank and head to the battlefield! Players will face off in an epic 1v1 clash on Mittengard for gold and glory!! Don't have a tier VII medium tank? You're in luck! Players can rent the German Panther M/10 to join in the fun!

 

 

Joining a tournament and earning a prize is easier than ever! In the Medium Throwdown, single-player teams are split into groups, with each group having no more than 10 teams. Facing all other teams in their group, the best tier VII Medium tank commander will earn the 1st place prize - a cool 500 gold! If you're not at the top of the pack, don't worry, players will earn gold all the way to 7th place!

 

Stop by, sign up and join the competition!

Well, this is new record for a 1v1 bracket:

Six no-shows.

One guy brought a Cromwell and tried to run away the entire match.

One guy brought a bone stock 3001P.  Yes, with the L/48.

One guy actually brought a proper tank and put up a fight.

 

The two guys with tier 6s will still get gold.  A stock lower tier tank that probably didn't do a single point of damage will essentially get gold for clicking the ready button.  Not the first time I've seen someone who just tried to draw every match either.  Nothing against the 3001P guy personally, free gold is free gold and you might as well take it, but something really does need to be done at this point about the poor attendance in these 1v1s.  People are just entering these and running random garbage because they know they'll still end up in the top 5 through technical victories.  I've probably seen on average 3-4 no-shows every week.

 

Edit: One no-show showed up to collect one technical win.  He went (1-4-4) and didn't actually play a single match.  He will get 100 gold for that.  This is not right.

Meh all the updates locked up my computer so I missed first 2 matches.

Then I had 2 guys running heavy tanks on me.

Then 1 guy was snapping shots that ammo racked me 2 times in a row and I never even damaged him.

I would hope after all this time that this game has been around things like this would not happen.

I only had 1 guy bring in the wrong tank which was O-I or whatever heavy it was. You came in second! Easy to do when you can take away almost 1/2 a mediums hit points and modules in 1 shot. Either I followed the process and reported him. Sure it's free gold, but why should someone who cheats get free gold?

 He won't get any. I know of at least 3 people who reported him, so you'll move up in the standings

This was my first tourney and I had fun! there were three technicals out of 9, but the others were well dressed and ready. First two games were the toughest for me and I had to make adjustments and run premium consumables because the Panther m10s apparently were. But I hear this is the way most of competitions  go. Much like stronks or team battles.
I went 9-0 and I was kind of disappointed it wasn't some kind of bracket system which the winners played each other and all fought it out for a 59 or something.
I look forward to next weeks two, now that I know that the type 59 chance is only on the Thursday one.
Not quite sure what to run though. Tier 6 O-I spam?
JT 88 for the td one?
Will those be the meta we should plan to counter you think?
Anyways GGs all!
Was a lot of fun!

I got my first win this time around. Won two games by ramming the opponent. That's always fun!

Yeah, I reported him too. Just makes me mad that people think they can cheat and get away with it.

Lately, it's been paid out on Tuesdays, but as the first post says, it can take up to 7 days.
