I will bring this up, but to answer your question it was limited due to Visa concerns. The countries listed do not require a Visa for entry into the United States so long as the person meets the listed requirements.

If you are a part of a clan that has multiple WoT clans can each one form a team or is it one team for the clan regardless?

Can I assume from the rules stated above that there will be no Oceania version at this stage? if at all? even if less gold was offered as prizes to account for less clans entering than NA Clans.

Sounds like a much better format than the 5 man tournies of late but alas there is no hope of getting 12ppl to play from Australia due to most ppl having jobs at that hour :(
Must you be a clan to compete or can you form a team especially for the event?

Is the 21 years of age limit applied to U.S. Citizens?(Answered in Post #19, thanks)

What is the maximum number of tanks in this battle? Am I correct in understanding that a team is between 12 to 15 tankers. I was hoping to verify that 12 was the minimum in the battle and that 15 was the maximum.

What about clans that have multiple chapters (reserves etc)?

So, is there anything preventing a team from signing up with 12 people, then showing up to the game with less than 12 people and still having the full amount of points?  (Ex. 6 x Tier 10 Heavies, 2 x Tier 8 Arty, and 2 x Tier 6 Lights = 10 players, 90 points) I know there have been rules regarding this in previous events, but I did not see anything here.

Each team has to represent a clan, but those teams can have up to four members that are not a member of the clan the team is representing.

The age minimum of 21 applies to whoever would be flying to the Bay Area. They must be 21, as they will be attending events that will require that age for entry into the event.

Clans with multiple chapters can have multiple teams compete; one per World of Tanks clan. I should stress this, because when I say World of Tanks clan, I literally mean a clan that exists in the game, not on the internet.

So, it's one clan per "chapter" in your example.

We will not be able to have a tournament at different times for this particular tournament, but we will look into it for the future. Because of how time-sensitive this tournament is, the schedule will be rather demanding -- not only for the teams but also the person managing the tournament. They will have to work a lot of overtime to properly schedule the rounds each day. Unfortunately we don't have someone trained to use the tournament tool to cover all time zones right now.

Nothing is preventing that. I purposely put "Up to" in the rules because any number of players are allowed to join the battle, up to 15. If you want to try to win with 9 tier 10s, you're more than welcome to. On the flip side, if you want to try to win with 15 tier 6s, you're also welcome to try!
