You've had plenty of time to restructure and bring back Tournaments. It's time to stop being lazy and bring them back. There is no excuse for not having any type of tournaments.

They hope, that eventually you will run out of tournament gold and pull out you credit card.

Or you know you could join the seasonal classic and earn gold by being in the top 50% of teams. Just thoughts.

If that tournament was at reasonable time...

I find it hard to believe a player with 114k battles is worried about the time of the tournament but sure, time can be an issue. I wish people would complain about that instead of whining there are "no" tournaments.

In case you didn't notice, they only let 896 people participate in that tournament. So of the whole NA server population, only 448 people will get gold from it.

Seasonal Classic is for GROUPS that can dedicate several days in a row to tourneys. And it is the ONLY tourney they are offering. To not recognize that is an underwhelming attempt to provide tourneys compared to the past is sticking ones head in the sand. Tourney Daily's and One V One tourneys used to be the norm for a reason. There is no legitimate reason for them to not have them going by now.

I think it's reasonable to assume that after the Seasonal Classic is over there will be new weekly tournaments.

In case you didn't notice the average turnout for tourney registration is quite under 2k, not that close to "the whole NA server population" And that's with easy reward value 1 day events.

Nobody is sticking their head in the sand saying this isn't underwhelming, but there is almost certainly a legitimate reason and it's silly to outright state there isn't.

As Poi said, they will likely have more after the classic, and yes the number of short tournaments is lacking but dailies are nowhere near as competitive and exciting as playoffs. I recommend clan wars or in game modes for short quick gold or fun in the meantime.

Yeah we tried, they only took the first 186 teams, before the registration even ended the team allowment was already full, so sorry thats not an excuse. And besides it wasnt even sponsored by WG, :/

It was only the first 128, and plus it was open for over a week before it filled up. It finally did fill up a couple days before, so the only reason people didn't get into the tournament is if they waited til the last minute to either form a team or submit it. Also the tournament is sponsored by WG? They're hosting it on their game on their website with their tournament tool. Even the icon has a big WoT logo on the front of it. Hell, even the name is "World of Tanks Seasonal Classic"

Well regardless, it filled up fast. There shouldnt have even been a team limit seeings how rare tournaments are these days anyway.

the problem with this tourney was that you couldn't have reserves, so the people you recruited had to be able to attend all the dates and be on time. I found it difficult to get 7 people who were committed to be there , every day. I had many who couldn't make it 1 day or were going to be late by 1/2 an hour. Being short 1 gun in a tournament is a liability.

In case you didn't notice playing randoms and tournaments puts you on a different schedule.

 

Until the kids are in bed I cannot commit to the tournament not to mention I have other commitments on one of the days and yeah - no reserves.

 

I'm sure the team will appreciate me going AFK in the middle of the game to take care of the kids.

it has been long enough for them to get tournaments running if they wanted to. don't believe they want tournaments for lower level players to join.
