It has now been over 60-days since WG announced the end of weekly tournament.  WG "says" weekly tournaments will return, but I say WG is not CREDIBLE and that this is just a lie to placate players.  I believe WG has no plans to return weekly tournaments, but instead of being honest, WG is misleading players into thinking they will return so these players will keep playing the game hoping they will return.  

 

I have had many detractors, but 60 days later I am still right.  There will be no return of weekly tournaments.  WG will announce this eventually, probably when they shut-down the NA Server and transfer all accounts to EU in late 2018.

You're butthurt that WG isn't giving you free stuff in the form of tournament rewards? Perfect example or someone who thinks they're entitled to something for no reason.

Giving you free stuff in the form of tournament rewards as you said implies that you sign up, and bam, free stuff...

No, we crave competitive play outside CW, and also a form of gold income that players that do not do CW can take part in...

And nothing is "Given" it is earned, we want that opportunity to earn gold outside of CW again...

 

I mean personally, I used Tournament rewards coupled with CW earnings to get tanks for my clan, this is slowing down that process...

 

And no I'm not a welfare warrior, I buy tanks, I haven't had a need to buy gold in years... But my reserves are running out

That's just plain ignorant.  Or is it salt from not performing well in tournaments?

 

Some players play it for the challenge.  The gold WON (thats a reason) is just icing on the cake.

 

I miss the 5v5s and especially 1v1s.  Just you and the tank you are going to destroy.  No excuses of bad teams if you do bad.  And quick and satisfying succession of victories in an hour.

 

WoT at its best and purest.  Wish they would make 1v1 Randoms a thing.

 

I would be happy just for pub random 1v1s available at any time.

 

Wow.  Unless someone suggested this before, I think I may have had the first original good idea in this forum since god knows when.

Well, this coupled with the removal of tier 6 and tier 8 clanwars means that WG has to pay out a lot less. Which from their point of view means you'll spend more real money because you'll still need gold. Pretty simple. And crappy.

Yeah, but I'm thinking completely random, you pick a tank and ready up and when someone has a tank same tier ready, and you fight a stranger with no hassle.  Other than if they leave and forfeit.

 

Random...who knows who you will fight.

Of course they're not returning, you actually believed WG when they said they would? LOL, they're slowly eliminating any way to make gold without whipping out your wallet and have been doing this for years now.

If u have not tried the FACEIT 1v1s, they were fun and challenging.  I quit them because most r now members only when before they were all free and WG nerfed the payouts into the ground.

WG has monetized the game reducing or eliminating any gold payouts and introducing OP premiums to milk the game for as much cash as they can as the playbase declines.  I have not spent money on the game in 2 years.  I do the monthly missions and that meager gold is enough with what i save from prior tourneys to give me a free premium acct for around 2 yrs. 

 

I am really surprised to still see players dumping money into a dying game.

 

Yes, i believe i will be proven right, weekly tourneys will not return.
