This is a complain and a question. How it is possible in the current 5vs5 a team that had a defeat and a draw on monday group stage is among in the best 32's and my team that only lose 1 battle has to fight in the 64's? It's seems to be fair or just a WG a joke? We finished 1st in our group and we consider is very (BS) unfair. They have better position they dont have to fight the first battle on wednesday  and we do, of course they have advantage and more posibilities to earn some gold... I hope (maybe dreaming) WG do something to fix that and take them away that advantage before tomorrow. If you need a screenshot or the name of the team I can post it here, cuz maybe you dont see this post now.

 

Hello!

 

Per the rules, teams are seeded randomly for the Playoffs.

Well... sorry but, it seems this is a lovely and unfair excuse than a rule when a team with less points get a beauty advantage...

in fact, looking the upper teams of the weekly 5v5 february 6 -10... there are more teams in the 32´s line (22 teams) than 64´s (20 teams)  wth thats the random seed? just BS

why cant make the distribution like tournaments in any sport? set random places in the 64´s line up for all the teams, if the number of teams leave a team alone advance that team to the next round, 1 team,  not half of the teams fuk*** to play 2 battles to reach the place that half of the other teams will reach only playing 1 battle.

If this has some logic, our team after wining the first battle should move right to 16´s lineup and let the teams in the 32´s line to fight and set a winner to fight us.

then again, this rules are pure BS

Hi Bedwyr!

 

I love hearing player feedback, as it allows us to improve/change things around. Saying that, is there anything in particular that you don't like about the format or particular advice for what you would like changed. Giving specific examples (e.g. dislike playing multiple playoff rounds in one night, wish it didn't last three days, hate playing encounter maps, etc.) is usually much more helpful when we consider changing things around. Thanks!

You are welcome Dance!...I guess my main issue with the current version is the one and done on Wednesday night..I would prefer either a similar set up as the Monday night or a bracket situation of best of 3 out of 5 rather than 1 shot at it and your done.

If time allows a best out of 3 would be great instead of single elimination.  Each team gets each side of the map, then a random flip for side.  If a team technicals 1 battle they are out...

Is there anyway to make rental vehicles available for the tournament?  Tourneys seem to come down more to tank composition than skill.  So instead of a tier 3 tournament, pick 3-5 tier 3 vehicles and have all the same vehicles available to everyone with 100% crews.  I would rather the tourneys be about skill, than depth of people's garages.

I would like to start off by saying thank you for having tounaments for your clientel to take part in. It is something different from random battles. Now with that said there is one thing that I just don't understand, why are teams with an average personal rating of lets say for example, 3500 matched up with a 9000 rating? Isit just random or do you split those high rated teams all up so it will end up with them in the final rounds? I understand it is hard to make all the groups equal and all the high numbers in one group and the low numbers to another. And then let them make it to the final rounds to see if they can hold there own. but knowing that there are teams from the top clans in each group make it almost diffecult for me to even get players from mine to even want to sign up. Plus if your going to have a tournament that splits up ( higher / lower ) playoffs just shows me you know this. Why not have ther tournament for higher and a tournament for the lower with same amount of pay out? Well I would like to hear what WG has to say but I'm sure I'm going to get some of those that like to get free gold give there opinion. Thanks for your time .

I also wonder that... Sometimes it seems random, but I'm not entirely sure... :P

Is there any issue or bug in 5 vs 5 weekly? Playoffs are scheduled to play Feb 16 at evening... (What?) says the tournament page.

Is it possible that the 16th is your local date when that round of the trny happens?  I'm in New Zealand, so my trnys dates are always one more than what is given in the trny american version of the schedule. 

 

You've got to be very careful with any date and time values that WG give you because they're extremely inconsistent. There are browser pages where trny dates are given in my local value but the start times are given in US value.

My tournament team usually plays the 3v3s. We decided to try the 5v5 this week, and recruited two additional members to make that possible.

 

We finished in the first two places from the round-robin stage, so were put into the alpha elimination bracket. We lost the first elimination battle, so that was the end of us. One single loss = you're eliminated = no gold for you.

 

We unanimously decided not to play in any more 5v5s. It was silly for us to make sure we were free for 3 nights of the week, only to be capriciously eliminated by a single loss on the second day. In no sense is that "fair". "First to 3 wins" would have had some semblance of fairness to it, but "First to one win" is absurd.

Was a bug already. It was corrected before battle and yeah sometimes web tournaments are inconsistent XD

For next week 3 maps listed, is it a random draw of maps, or will we know when battles are scheduled?

The format changed at the beginning of 2017 from five days of group stage, to one day of group stage followed by a single-elimination playoff. The days are Mon/Wed/Fri and players requested not having overlap with the Platournaments on Tues/Thurs.

 

If you could explain what part(s) of the format you dislike, that would make it easier for us to determine any potential change(s) going forward.

There will be a random map selected for each round. You will be able to see the maps to be played once the battles are scheduled.
