Matchup Bonus for the Playoffs

Each matchup during the Playoffs will also have 18,000 gold on the line. This gold will be distributed equally between the two teams in the matchup based on how many battles are won in the matchup.

Examples:

Clan Score Prize
[CLANA] 1 3,000
[CLANB] 5 15,000
Clan Score Prize
[CLANC] 3 6,750
[CLAND] 5 11,250

 

Notes

1 Industrial Resource will be given out over a period of several days due to the limit of how much IR a clan can hold. When there is room, we'll keep adding it until all is paid out.  Clans have up to seven days to make room for IR to be added, otherwise they forfeit the prize.

2 The Stronghold Reserves will be distributed based on which buildings a clan has. For example, if a Clan doesn't have a Financial Unit building, they cannot receive the Battle Payments Reserve.

Players must be in the Clan at the time of the Finals match.

There will be a lot of complaints about the "all players must use a vanilla client" rule and no reward tanks.

Since this appears to be the newest version of the clan league, will the matches also be streamed like they were last year? If so, where can I volunteer to be one of the casters again? After all, I'm assuming that's why there's only 14 people to a team instead of 15...:)

Will we have to submit them every night after battles to that email listed like in Clan League or only if WG requests them?

I would just set up a google drive folder. Where you just make each player that played in a match, to make a folder and upload their replays. If they don't they do not receive any gold or prizes. As the XO can just inform dance, not to send it to that person.  Makes life much easier for everyone. And instead of having to zip the 20 or so emails you get from players, you just email the link to WG.

Should make this a World clan tournament not just America's this should be played in the world championship not teams of 7 paid profesional players.Clans are the actual people who are dedicated to the game not the rage quitting pro's when they loose. Never see pro's in a random battle . Haters hate! As$ clowns speak up!

^^ I think that will probably be the issue for any of the clans that do place top three. I think maybe a better prizing system is give the top 3 a unique 8 reward and maybe 4-8 a choice of one of the old ones. or 4-6 - not exactly sure how many tanks are regularly given out in tier 8 Campaigns.

About the rewards, only the players in the team will receive the play off rewards? or every player of the clan will be able to choose a vehicle? After all is a Clan League, the entire clan should receive the rewards IMO

the playoff rewards go to entire clan. suchas tanks, reservers and things like that. how the clan wants to split the gold is up to the commanders.

Hey Dance,

What I'm wondering and hopefully I get a response...

 

Is that if this is basically just an extended (or series of) Clan Exhibition Tournaments which are normally registered as 16 + 84 why is this now changed to a 30man roster? And on top of that we need to resign and resubmit the 30man roster each week for 5 weeks? With the 16 + 84 there is far less micro managing to do for each clan that participates, even if we have to submit 5 times. 

 

And if the concern is that the Playoff Prizing would pay out too many individuals per clan, simply change the rules (plenty of time left) to include a minimum battle requirement to qualify for Tank Prize payouts (Top 3 Playoff winners).

Playoff prizing goes to everyone in the clan anyways and this is more similar to Clan League than the Exhibitions

Sweet more cool stuff for the top Clans . Just what all the Unicom's need more crapto crush the scrubs with . As if ranked battles wont give them even more stuff to crush us scrubs with good job War gaming . You keep giving all the perks to the top players hey they are good and should win goodies , but you forget the regular guys all to often . How about some type of victory point system{ Top players would still get more points } where for X number of points you get a shot at something cool like a tank or something anything accept a fooking sticker that does nothing for 6 months of clan battles . I spend a lot of money on this game top players don't have to they get pay outs from CW and or always do well in tournaments . Most of the guys in my clan have spent enormous amounts of cash buying premium vehicles and to me it feels like WoT just over looks us .  Anyway I'm sure Ill get a bunch of negative comments to you all I say ... whatever .
