Our captain is listed as IGN_NA13 which is not even a person.  Our captain is supposed to be GravesMD or myself.  WHY is there issues with every single tournament?  Can we get this resolved before we only have a few hours to finalize our teams?

Your captain signed up as GraveMD. I've already emailed the captain to get the proper username, but now that you've said it I'll look into fixing it myself.

I've assigned you as the captain. You can have GravesMD visit the team page to apply, here: http://uc.worldoftan...m/uc/teams/855/

I sent you an email about that -- you were signed up via IGN as Ta0ism (user doesn't exist). Can you apply to the team with your account? I'll log into the IGN account currently maintaining it to get you fixed up.

You're free to register the team yourself, yes. But just so I can double check our data, what was the team name and captain name used to sign up?

A tourney for 3rd tier? At least it would be more active battles than a tourney of tier 10s.

Giving premium tanks as rewards, huh? Are all of those tanks already in the game? I know the Valentine, Ram II, Lowe, and KV-5 are. Kinda self-defeating if a player already has one of those in his/her garage when he/she wins it from this tourney. Is there a alternative plan in such a case.

You know, you could have added a premium arty (especially if from the as-yet unimplemented french tech tree) to each victory class.

as it stands, I didn't have any reason enter this tourney. I have all three of the arty you allowed in the tourney in my garage (fully equipped and crews fully skilled); but I didn't want to sully my arty lines with more turrets (having to keep the KV in just for the KV/KV-2 split is bad enough).

A chance to win a premium/french arty would have been enough to pull me into the tourney, even with my most hated map (Himmelsdorf) in the mix. It would have gotten me playing again before my self-imposed abstention from WoT was expired.

Oh well. just another view of how the devs don't truly look at the game as players do.

And General, I'm sure I'm stating a common view When I say it's nice to see you responding so quickly to player needs.

The reason it's limited to tier III is because the tournament is part of a promotion with IGN to bring new players into the game. That's what the intent behind the free M3 Stuart, 750 gold and a week of premium was. So we also set up a tournament for those IGN Prime members who would become new players, and knew that it wasn't reasonable to expect them to have a comfortable experience with higher tier vehicles in the tournament.

The premium tanks aren't the only rewards for placing in the top 4 teams, though -- there's also a full compliment of nice PC hardware.

That said, I'm sorry you weren't interested in the tournament. Perhaps the next one we plan will be more enticing for you.

When did you sign up? I'm not seeing the team in the most recent file I received from IGN, which contains all teams registered through last night. You'll probably want to create the team again to make sure you're included in the tournament.

this is the 1st tournament that me and others are going to attempt to do so i got just few questions as captain....


on this site,

http://uc.worldoftan...tournaments/12/


when i go to my team page i see,

"Modify team "
"Close team enrollment "
"Apply "
"Delete team "


so, what is close team enrollment, and what is apply, and when and which should i do 1st and last to complete registration for this tournament? how many team members can i add in the group before i click those final buttons? should i have a total 8 (including the ign_na member)...(5 normal originals + 2 alts)...? or should i add like 10 more members just to have incase but 2 at most would be alternates?



(on a side note, a team member was stated as captain for my team when i know for a fact i made myself captain when i registered the team orginally.... he was cool and made me captain again but i thought that error should just be noted)

(p.s. also is the tier 2 hotchkiss premium tank allowed?)



thanks,

Mozam

You'll want to add your reserves (2 players) before clicking Apply. Apply changes the status of your team -- essentially submitting it for approval by us. It's the step that finalizes your team, telling us "Alright, we're ready for the tournament!"

Thanks, I'll take a look at the data and see where that fell through the cracks.

Yep! There are no restrictions on tanks -- premium or not -- aside from the tier III maximum, tier II maximum for SPGs and TDs.
