It is now 60 days and still no announcement by WG regarding the return of weekly tournaments.

PM'd about the WoT Academy question, as for "soon" - It's not an intentionally ambiguous answer designed to cause frustration.  Sometimes when we are working on new stuff we have a whole lot of ideas, and have to whittle them down to what is possible and what is practical.  While we're in that stage of determination it doesn't help to give out any details because nothing is finalized yet - but it's not that far off either.  

 

So it's been just shy of two months since your last answer... Please define 'soon' for us again. Or clarify 'not far off'.

The moment Dance or whoever in WG said "we're gonna try this new tournament format for a while" I knew that was the end of any and all tournaments actually worth playing given the gold payout they had.

Even with the nerfed gold payouts, the tourneys were still fun so it was still worth playing them but it is sad WG has ended them.  DANCE was never all that competent, but more importantly she was just a low level clerk with no real authority.  She was brought in to slowly end weekly tourneys, but to try and put a good face on it as she is polite and responsive, but impotent.

I thought Dance was a great, reliable employee who cared about customer concerns.

 

The 1vs1 tournaments only happened every once in a while before, but got so popular that Dance had them virtually every week. 

 

1vs1 tournaments should be resumed.  I don't even care if they lower gold payouts, they were some of the most fun you could have in this game.   1vs1 tournaments, game modes, etc should be expanded, not eradicated.

Do you have a link for that?

 

And by the way (to the OP), DANCE was a big reason why we even had tournaments.  Notice that when she got a new job elsewhere was when tourneys died?  That's not a coincidence.

Dance was the only employee on WG NA handling everything related with tournaments. Obviously after she moved to another department tournaments stopped. Now why is so hard to re-implement Tournaments back? is not Like they have to add anything New, everything is already in Place just need the WG NA employee assigned to this area.

 

It cant be that hard can it?

 

2 Months and counting...

 

Please Bring Back 1vs1, 3vs3 and 5vs5 Tournaments WG NA!

Posted this in another Tournament post, but worth repeating.  Look at the WoT EU current tournament page:

 

And WoT NA page:

That's odd.  Didn't EU start having tournaments because EU players complained that NA had them, but EU didn't?  We've done a complete 180` then?

No I don't have the link for it mainly because I can't find it. I saw it long enough ago that it has gotten lost in Discord channels and search history on my computer.

Cabbic Mechanic says: Other Tournaments: Fans of the regular 1v1 and 3v3 Tournaments  - Tournaments outside of the Seasonal Classic Series will most likely not be returning in the 2017 Calendar Year, but we have not forgotten you.  More info to come for 2018.

By the time the tournaments do come back (assuming they do) we will have forgotten about WOT.
