Doesn't look like the T10 stage award leaderboard is much bigger (if at all) this season than last season. By comparison, the T8 stage leaderboard last season had 20 more award places (35 vs. 15).

 

Was hoping T10 would have been adjusted accordingly, since it's the only game in town, but ah well. :(

You should not be surprised. WG seems to be (unintentionally?) limiting the ability of all but the top clans to participate in any organized WOT activitys. Even Tourneys are currently limited to Ultimate CLAN Cup and Gold League Tryouts. The individual and small groups can apparantly go EFF themselves for all WG cares.

^RushB is a small group. Bulba is a small group and some friends along for the ride.

As has been stated by WGNA, they're taking some time to redesign how they're going to do tournaments and work on the back-end of them. (The clan cup is a complete and utter disaster, but that's a whole different topic).


Leaderboards should be limited, Clan Wars is competitive end-game content. This isn't a 3rd grade soccer "tournament" where every kid gets a ribbon.

Hoe is wargaming limiting who can participate. Sure, they upped the level of competition but they did not say you arent top 25, you cant play.

I dont think anyone is asking for "everyone to get a trophy". He is pointing out that there is obviously not an increase in Tier10 participation due to the elimination of tier 6 an 8, imho. also, Sofaking was meerly pointing out that the small groups that cannot field a 15 man team have no outlet for competitive play now and wg seems not to give an evv. nobody said that they were not allowed to participate in CW or Clan CUP, it is just that there are no more 1v1 or 3v3 or 5v5 tourneys, and 7v7 and 10v10 cw are gone.not hard to understand man.

Last season, only a few clans participated in T10, and the stage award places were also limited, whereas a lot more clans participated in T8, and the award positions were proportionally higher. A possibility existed that WG would continue that proportional approach by adjusting the number of T10 stage award positions to match the potential influx of clans.

If I am correct in remember last season the T6, T8, T10 (novice) got no rewards at the end of the season. The T10 map gave out camos to the top 10% of clan based on participation. And from the looks of it we have had more clan participation already on the t10 map. Along with this they increased the gold for the stages from 30k to 45k and trickles down to more clans.

I don't think anybody has ever argued that it should be that way. If we're going to use the soccer analogy, the English football league system has 11 tiers and dozens of series. By the same token, we had tier 6 and 8 CW as well as various different tournaments for all tiers and many different team sizes. Tier 10 CW is end game content, but that doesn't exclude other competitions from existing, and I fail to see why people who play tier 10 and aren't affected by the existence (or not) of other competitions care so much about it.
