Hello Tankers!

 

Below is the preliminary schedule we have planned out for the month of December.  As always, all of this is subject to change.

 

Some important bits:

  • We have increased the time between rounds and stages to 5 minutes to avoid any timeout issues (no invite bug) that we have experienced in the past.  Minutes between battles will remain 2 minutes.
  • Like Gold, Credits and Free XP will be paid out in the same fashion where the number of battles contributed to your team will determine your split of the prize.
  • After the 22nd of December, we won't be running anymore tournaments due to the holidays.  We'll pick back up with the start of January 2019!
  • Registration will now close 1 hour prior to the tournament start to provide enough time for brackets to be published.

 

12/1 to 12/6:

 

 

12/7 to 12/9

 

12/12 to 12/16

 

12/19 to 12/23

 

Tournament Missions V2:

 

The missions will stay the same, but we have changed some of the parameters to make the end reward a lot easier to obtain.

  • We've changed all of the mission conditions from "Once per account" to "Once per day."  This way, you are not required to complete every single one to earn enough tokens for the Garage Slot.
  • Blocked Damage seemed to be least completed mission, so we've drastically lowered the threshold.

Again, these are very simple missions as we don't want to create some that would warrant a different play style or how a player approaches the tournaments.  Also, the prizes aren't crazy good either, but its nice to get a little something if you didn't manage to qualify for a reward in a tournament. 

 

Missions:

I am confused by the list you have. 

 

 

12/2 - 3v3: Sunday Toons! - Mastery

  • 3/14 Format 
  • 3v3
  • Tier VIII only

​With this format you have 3vs3 tier 8. but you have 3 tanks bringing a total of 14 tier. which is not equal in ANY format. is this a 2v2 tier 7 or a 3vs3 tier whatever adding up to 14 tier points?

(This has been corrected.)

 

12/7 - 2v2: Refill Friday!

  • 1/4 Format 
  • 2v2
  • Tier VI only

​With this format you have 2vs2 but only 1 tank can enter with a tier 4. 2x4 is not 4. Is this a 1vs1 or a 2vs2?

 

12/9 - 3v3: Sunday Toons!

  • 3/15 Format 
  • 3v3
  • Tier VII only

​With this format you have 3vs3 three tanks going in with a total of 15 tier points but its a tier 7 battle. 7x3 is not 15. is this a tier 7 battle or a tier 5 battle?

 

12/19 - 2v2: 

  • 3/27 Format 
  • 3v3
  • Tier II only

​With this format you have 3vs3 totaling 27 tier points but they have to bring tier 2 so 27/3 is not 2. it would make sense if this was a tier 9 battle. but not 2.

Thanks for bringing that up. Corrected

The registration will close an hour before the tournament to give everyone enough time to review the brackets.  Also, some tournaments will be starting an hour earlier to give players in later time zones more time and there is one tournament in the morning.

Thank you very much for the heads up. Would you be able to update the post with the prizes available for these tournaments as well, similar to previous tournaments announcements? :)

5PM PST is where everybody in West coast are at work Jambijon. Not a good thing to move weekday tournaments one hour earlier. Please keep it 6PM PST. We have been through this lots of times and it keeps coming back again. Not sure why?

Also not sure about resetting the tournament missions daily. What if you can't get 6 kill on the same day or blocking 30k dmg. Are we going to loose the progress and the count goes back to 0 next day.

That's true, but we wanted to try some a little bit earlier.

The missions won't be reset, it means the missions are able to be completed multiple times through out the month.

The tournaments will have prizes.  Just like our other tournament schedules, we'll update it with the prizing the closer we get to the tournament.

We won 3rd place in the 7V7 tournament yesterday, and were promptly paid the gold portion of the prize. However, 3rd place also earned 750 bonds, which have not been paid yet. Is this normal?

 

Thanks!

I must say I get tired playing 9 rounds for a tournament. Also i think the time between rounds increased, making the tournaments last forever. 

Also, before, prizes would get 3 out 5 teams. Now it's 4 out of 9 in 2v2 and 3v3, 5 out of 9 in 7v7? Hmm...

Yes, bonds are paid manually. AFAIK they didn't pay a single tourney that had bonds yet

Hi Jambijon, Not sure why you want to screw up the timings for the whole west coast just to try out some thing new. Some thing new should be an improvement. Going to be the last post on this from me. 

 

Either way 2+ hours of tourney is not my thing. One hour is the sweet spot. Not sure who you are catering to. People who doesn't have any thing to do who can spend countless hours or people who has family and work and can spend only finite time. You should try to balance for everybody. Keep it one hour and if you are going overboard with gold then decrease the prizes a little. But 2+ hours of tourneys for sure will eliminate good amount of people out of tournaments. If that's your intention then you are doing the right thing.    

 

Either way thanks for the reply.
