I as some of you have noticed there is/was an issue with the times on the 2v2 tournaments. One was corrected before one of the tournaments started, the other players had to play one battle then the bracket was reset and the tournament was delayed for 30 mins. I have lowered to the number of teams in each group for this reason which will increase the total prize pool.

 

This is because the Tournament system uses Zulu time (UCT) and because of daylight saving time the tournament started an hour early. 

 

This is not a great excuse but I figured I would let you know why and that I have now learned this lesson (the hard way).

 

This means that the date and time for the next week tournament for South America are probably incorrect.

Hmm, still show the same teams and amount of teams in my group.

Can you explain this part please? Or rather, detail which tournaments this statement is in regards to?

Please Translate:

1) Will the tournament still go off today?

 

2) When will Special Battles pop?

I respect your intentions 1984BigBrother, but this does not necessarily help an individual team. Yes, the number of teams that get a reward increases, but what if you just removed another 1 or 2 teams that a team could've beaten, bumping them up to the next prize level? I would rather have a flat out lets say 1000 gold compensation to ALL teams, rather than just having this method which doesn't ensure anything.

ZULU?

 

I heard some guy forgot to put the clocks back, but then when he finally did reset them the batteries were bad.  WG did not have any AAA's so now we are sitting here waiting for him to get back from the store.

Next time, maybe have enough AA's and AAA's to run all the clocks on the server.

The bracket still has the same number of teams in my group, with the exact same teams. Battles did pop now though, which is nice. ;)

Wait, why are we playing the same team TWICE?

 

You mean I have to shoot all the gold again into a Type 5?

We beat a better team the first go. No we have to play them again? And if we lose, is it too bad so sad? We won fair and square the first time round. Shouldn't have to fight them again.
