It is highly unlikely that old Skirmishes will return (unless you mean the original, 64 team single elim version of the Skirmish).

Yes, for the 3v3's the first week of January, any tier VIII tank, including light tanks, are allowed. If there are ever any restrictions, it will be under "Additional Information" at the top of the tournament page :)

Is there going to be a big tourney like we used to have(12 Days of Tanksmas Tournament) or something like EU having right now  (End of the Year Marathon)?

I think what he is referring to is when the Skirmish tournaments ran Mon, Tues, Weds (could win a lil bit of gold each night if you did well) to sort out the seeding for the Alpha, Bravo and Charlie brackets. Thursday was a night off with Friday, Sat and Sun being playoff days. 

It was very disappointing when that format was killed off.   The part that everyone liked was that you could still make a little bit of gold if you had one good night and sucked the rest of the way. It made you feel like you didn't waste your time completely. At the end there was a chance of winning a good amount if you kicked butt. 

It was something to look forward to and check the standings after every night. I find the Platournaments boring to be honest. The 1v1 tourneys fill the void for now but I would much rather have the Skirmish format back

Are 5v5s being phased out for 3v3s and Throwdowns these days? I'm not a huge fan of these small battles to be honest. RNG is too big of a factor and often if you're lucky/unlucky the game can just be compeltely thrown.

The 5v5's will be returning in January :)

What is the chance of doing the 5 v 5 in several tiers at the same time/day using the format we used last year?  Slambob Quote - "Mon, Tues, Weds (could win a lil bit of gold each night if you did well) to sort out the seeding for the Alpha, Bravo and Charlie brackets. Thursday was a night off with Friday, Sat and Sun being playoff days."  Doing a Tier 6, 7 , 8 the same night would give everyone the choice of what tanks to run and not be force to go down to a lower tier just to play a 5 v 5.  The 21:30 EST time start seems to work for a large portion of the tankers.  Lower skill guys that are learning and working their way up the tank structure would have a chance to learn team play without (I wish) being slammed by more experienced players.  Maybe you could use PR total for the team as a restrictor?  All I know is that we need to encourage learning how to play as a team at an earlier stage and not have their teeth kicked in and stop trying.

Is there a tier limitation for the 3v3s and 5v5s? As far as I can recall, I've never seen any tier 9 or 10 ones and would be interested to know whether they happen.

I have a tendency to stick with the most popular tiers (tier IV - VIII) for the tournaments. I am more likely to run a tier IX or X tournament for the 5v5 tournaments.

 

If people are interested, I can run some higher tier for the 3v3, to see how well they do.

Hey dance, I would love to try a 3v3 on either Mittengard,Prok, or Ensk at tier 10. Would you be so kind to make that happen? I love the 3 on 3 platournaments as it's an nice way to stack up the gold. BTW, great job. You've made quite the name for yourself in the community.

Before, one could earn a possible of 10k gold or more per week. A good standing in one day of the skirmish could bring in 2k gold. Now, playing whole week of stand to does not even match the amount of gold we got from 1 day of skirmish before.

Now, it is always 1 v 1 or 3 v 3. Whatever happened to unique tournaments  like before 

 

Grats wargaming on ruining the joy of tournament and decreasing the amount of payout by 90%.

 

P.S I really hope wargaming goes back to the old tournament set ups and get rid of this current one.

That setup won't be back as wargaming is trying to cut off our gold income from tournaments. Set up like this would make them give out more gold which they won't. This is why they got rid of this system but I agree with you on that they should bring it back.

Have we been paid for the 7th? I received 800 gold on Monday, which was what I calculated my winnings were on Thursday. I haven't received gold since then.

I messed up my calculations.
