Hi all!

 

Sorry for the delay in responding and for the glitch in last night's battles. It appears as though the glitch only affected those in the Lower Playoffs.

 

As the tier settings were not correct, the battles from last night do not count. There are two options to fix this:

  1. Lower Playoffs ONLY are cancelled and all players receive 250 gold
  2. Battles are rescheduled for Friday. Playoff bracket will have a max of 16 teams, to allow all rounds to conclude within one day. Prizes will be paid out per bracket.

 

The current plan is to go with Option 2. The currently scheduled battles for tomorrow will be cancelled. New playoff brackets for the Lower Playoff will be created and re-scheduled, using the correct tier limits. This will allow all teams to participate, as there is quite a difference between tier III and tier VII.

 

 

Again, apologies for the glitch and good luck tomorrow.

 

If I'm understanding this correctly dance, you're considering screwing the players with both options. We either get less gold than we would have otherwise won, or simply put half of the lower bracket will be removed since you noted a max of 16 teams (Unless there will be multiple Lower Playoffs due to 63 teams being in the lower bracket?).

 

Isn't it a better choice to just reward players for their versatility and allow them to continue with the exception of giving the players that didn't advance up to the 250 gold reward mark, the 250 gold. I'm just confused with the way the second option is setup due to the wording.

No, because the tournament did not run as planned and the rules state that if the tier is not correct than the tournament battles don't count. The second option allows those who were not able to participate to play. Because there are fewer teams in each playoff bracket, more teams will be able to win prizes.

 

The 250 gold compensation is the standard amount given when there is a technical issue that prevents the tournament from running as planned. If the battles can't be rescheduled, then the compensation is given. In this case, it is possible to reschedule the battles using the correct settings.

Hi Dance... this not the first time weekly has problems. And for that you removed skirmishes? Is just a fair quiestion not an attack.

I wish I had read the forum sooner or WG sent a message to the team's Captains with the change.  We lost on Wednesday so my team thought we were out.  We didn't know about the rescheduled battles until special battles popped.   As a result, my team was short and we lost again lesser team that had a full team. I vote for option 1.  250 gold per team.

Hi I have a question, why did my team only received a portion of the prize we won. we came in the 9th-16th bracket of the most recent 5v5 and only received 750 gold out of the 1,000 gold we were supposed to have gotten.  https://worldoftanks...eam/1000317175/

Something about the description below doesn't add up.

 

It says "Maximum 9 battles" then only shows ONE time for Monday: 20:00
 

The Lower Playoff shows Maximum 2 battles and shows FOUR times: 20:00, 20:35, 21:10 and 21:45 on both We, and Fri

The Upper Playoff shows Maximum 2 battles and shows FOUR times: 20:00, 20:35, 21:10 and 21:45 on both We, and Fri

 

Does this mean each team only plays TWO of the four listed battle times?

  • Lower Playoff

Hello BlueJay_20,

 

Congrats on earning 2nd place in the tournament! Please be aware that it can take up to seven days after the tournament ends to receive your prize. We thank you for your continued patience :)

Hey Dance I know this has probably come up before but what is with the requiring mixed tiers for these 5v5 tournaments? 

 

The current one is 5v5 but you set tier point to 28 so we have to a bring a tier 4 or two tier 5s.

 

Makes it harder to play to win when you have to bring a tank that is basically cannot fodder.

Hi!

 

It's intentional, to encourage players to bring a variety of tanks. Part of the fun is deciding to bring two tier V tanks or one tier IV tank.

If I understand this correctly, after the round robin on Monday, teams get split off into upper and lower playoff groups.

Do we still play 2 matches on Friday if we did not make it high enough on Wednesday?

so after group stage we go to playoffs, which is a single elimination. Another words you play until you lose. If you win all your battles on wensday you move onto friday. The higher you get the more gold you make.

Thanks for clearing that up bro. So on Wednesday as soon as we lose 1 game, we don't get to participate on Friday?

Correct. As soon as you lose a round, you are eliminated from the tournament and do not continue to play.
