Tankers,

 

We are pleased to inform you, that, as of this time, tournaments will occur much more frequently (by this we mean daily). We hope this offers you a better format and tier choice.

 

“What?”, you say? Well, the new tournament schedule will be divided into three types: Weekday Scuffle, Challenger Bracket, and Mastery Bracket.
- Weekday Scuffle might contain any vehicle tiers, but we will try to focus more on mid-level tanks, so these tournaments might seem more attractive to starting competitive players.
- Challenger Bracket will be played mostly on weekends and contain tiers VIII to X. It is positioned as our middle-ground for new and experienced players.
- Mastery Bracket will heavily concentrate on top tier tanks and strong teamplay, much like the 5v5 Attack/Defense.

 

“When?”, we can hear you asking next. First, only a small number of tournaments will pop up today, and they will continue to do so daily. Registration time for most tournaments will be around three days. For the Mastery Bracket it's five days.

 

Also, we are adding the first regular tournament for the South American server. This will be held weekly.

 

You are welcome to leave any feedback in regards to the new schedule or any issues you may face along the way.

What a good news am I reading!!?!! Thanks a lot for this initiative. Really! 
What I really hope is for good rewards. Not the kind we have in the past... but certainly not the kind we have today.
Thanks again.

When are we going to get discounts on crew training/retraining/skill reset, equipment, consumables, tech tree tanks, and camo? When? When? When?............ WHEN???

 

(But that is good though about the tourneys.)

You might see some familiar reward types, but that is a subject to change in the future.

Each tournament has a countdown to when registration ends, I'd suggest also putting a countdown to when the tournament begins, as some of us live in vastly different time zones.

 

Actually, looking at a hover pop up, it seems as though times are displayed in my time zone, so that saves a lot of hassle. Thought the battle was tomorrow, but it's today. Nice.

Thank you for an honest and fast answer. I hope we can talk with you with opinions and ideas for the tournament system.
Like modes, tournament statistics, etc.

Will the rewards be increased for the higher brackets? Or since there is more tourneys then the gold output would be decreased and spread out?

I hope we are stepping back into the right direction for tournaments again.  It always feels like when Tournaments get good payouts again or happen often then it changes quickly.

A variety of different times is nice.

Not everyone lives in the core of the US and have 1st shift jobs.

The time zones for this server population spreads out over 6 hours in differences.

Brazil 3 hours ahead of Eastern and Pacific 3 hours later than Eastern.

 

Personal Opinion: We already have CW and Advances from 7 pm - 11 pm EDT keep the tournament times out of that range and let others that cannot play during them times have some form of competitive mode to play. However I am also in favor of equal opportunity.  A start time of something like 7 pm in each time zone 1 day a week would be most fair. That would spread the times from 4 pm EDT to 10 pm EDT.

And when we can see the gold league again? That kind of tournament really give life into the game, if Wg want to get new people and stimulate the actual gamers, should do that... I remember when the gold league and the grand finals all our friends was seeing those awesome players, and dreaming someday be like them... And like us, thousands of anothers players could be like that.

I'm hoping you will keep a Mastery bracket in the 1v1 weekend tourneys like the Friday Night Fights. Can't always find 4 other people to show up. Perhaps a reserve player?
