Howdy Tankers,

 

It has been a long time since I've seen things like Tier 5 or even Tier 3 tournaments.  For months now, we've had the same Tier X, IX & VIII schedules.  I know there were glitches before, but are we every going to have more variety in the tournaments? 

 

Just curious.

Those high tier tournaments used to really eat up the credits, years back when we still had the weekday warfare that award up to 10k gold for the top performing teams I went through like two or three million credits when it was for tier 9 that one week. Low tier tournaments back in the good old days were one hell of a gravy train if you had the right tanks and good crews.

i would actually play low tier tournaments. they may never reappear.if high tier tournaments are credit-sinks,WG will stick to those alone.

 

i loved the old-style low tier tournaments where you put yourself on an open roster and WG would form your tournament team for you. cant remember the exact term

They would be fun.

 

 

Edit: Plus, they would lower the gap in skill so more players could win. Lower tiers arnt so technical like higher ones. Itd be better for the community.

When and where do they even announce these things?  I swear, I think that I'm the most oblivious WoT player.  I still don't even understand Clan Wars... ugh!

I infer that lower tier tourneys are just as they sound: tourneys for under T8 that are open to any commanders of any skill level (PR, WN8, whatever), correct?

 

Has there ever been a tourney based on one's level of skill ranking?

 

If not, why not? WG could conduct tourneys for a specific tier, using WG own Personal Ratings on our NA Service Record to determine the competition level.

 

I get that lower tier vehicles are less technically challenging than their higher tier counterparts, which should result in a more level playing field.

 

BUT, a commander with, say, a WG NA Personal Record of 4000 would still mop the battlefield with me, not matter what tier level we played.

They have Tournaments every week but they are for Tier X, Tier IX and 1 for Tier VIII.  There's nothing for Tiers VII and below.  But when I started doing tournaments, I played in a couple Tier V and one Tier III tourney.  Those were fun and I had a blast - plus they didn't cost a ton of credits.  Was just wondering why we don't have them anymore and/or if they'll make a comeback.

warchild...you answered your own question..."they didn't cost a ton of credits"...and of course in the old days you got some gold when doing okay..."they didn't cost a ton of credits". what tiers cost the most credits to run..."they didn't cost a ton of credits". WGNA is moving away from the 'they didn't cost a ton of credits" modes to " i only get THAT???" mode. im just resigned to the pennyante stuff...but incremental free stuff STILL does add up. my take...whenever a mode/event goes on "hiatus" or disappears for a while...the resurrection of the event or a similar event are just ghosts of former glory.

 

Tank Rewards and Tournaments are the foremost examples.

I have tanks set up for tournies at tiers 4-10 but don't get to use most of them. Would also like at least one 5-7 person game every week. Small teams of the same tiers gets boring (same set of maps too).

The current tourney system gives you just as much gold, if not more.

 

Skirmishes were six days a week, and you could win around 10k gold, but only one team would win 10k. Even if you had a very good team, you weren't guaranteed that each week. You might win 6-7k a week, which averages out to just over 1000 gold a day. Currently, you can get just shy of 4000 gold between the four tournaments on three days, which averages out to the same amount of gold.

 

I actually like the current system better, since with Skirmishes you had to show up 6 days otherwise it wasn't worth it. Now, I can pick and choose the tournaments I can play.

I can only play 1v1 tourneys, so I'm limited to the Friday night Tier X and Sat Morning Tier IX.  I would like a little more variety and more fun at lower tiers.  But that's just me.
