But the 8.6 will not be up in time!
the tournament will be this month!

Maybe it's a simple mistake

Similar rules to other tournaments yes. As with any tank it's map dependant and not something you'll see a lot of. It's a gamble for any team to sink points into a tier 8 arty as you only have 42 points per team and you want a balanced spread.

Standard competition rules or if I may say ESL tournament rules. Nothing surprising, 7/42 good set up. I only wish more teams were rewarded.

Nope. I didn't miss this, or any other cup WG arranges. Because they suck at it. Seriously never seen such a low level of tournament managing skills in any game I've ever played.

And you know what really grinds my gears? That we play one battle on one day... and if you get seeded through that and win on a walkover because there is no enemy... you get to know that one hour earlier. ONE HOUR. So 20 guys still show up to fight, and then there is no battle, so they just freakin' wasted their day. Good job WG, I'm done with your retarded tournaments, your idiotic map selection, and your completely useless Bump and that other dude running this bullcrap. They suck at it. And listening to their commentary of the later battles, it's obvious they have a serious lack of knowledge of the game.

WG - step it up, do this right, don't half-ass it all the damn time, and postpone EVERY single time. I'm sick of it, and not taking part of these laughable excuses of "tournaments".

I personally prefere this Tournaments to the ESL stuff. In ESL you really kan sink hours just in naming teams and seting up training rooms. I really had enjoyed ever last one of this competitions and i hope WG continues. Keep up the good work guys and dont listen to the whiners... whiners will always whine, and winners will always win.

It's the official eSports format. Tune in to see WoT PRO League streams or try to play Go4WoT. They all use this format.

You shouldn't pass it. All players who want to play WoT at the highest level should play this one. Nearly 500 teams play 7v7/42 in Go4WoT

Would you please explain what was "low" and what you didn't like?

Info is always there, if we plan to play 1 round we say it in advance. We can't notify 1000 teams and send everyone their tournament schedule.
Once the round is set up, all you need to do is to visit the tournament page and see do you have an opponent. If you don't have an opponent that means you don't play if there's only one round on that day.

We selected all popular maps and we add a couple of new ones to test them in the competitive play.

Sorry if you didn't like our commentary we will do our best to improve.

Apart from from the cruiserweight when our portal went down and we had to postpone one round, I honestly don't remember a single delay in the last couple of months

Thank you for your feedback.

You can't add them, they have to join your team. You can see more info here http://forum.worldof...to-join-a-team/

If you have more questions please check our eSports help desk http://forum.worldof...orts-help-desk/

Kind regards

Info is not always there. It gets updated almost criminally short before the tournament starts. If a team is not going to play - let them know that a couple of days in advance. Not a few hours before the battle is supposed to start.

When we announce the tournament we mention the start of the first round, as we can't post the whole schedule because we don't know the number of participants.

Once the tournament starts we publish the whole schedule.

Dude, give me a good reason why you can't release it fairly quickly after the signups are over? The tournament isn't on for several days after that. When the sign-up is closed - you know how many teams there will be. Hence you can inform us already then, not at the last minute, and then postpone everything when there's more than one battle to be fought like people didn't have a life.

         I believe flipnode has a valid point here. In my opinion, your last call schedule delivery is very unnerving to many players who respect their real life. As much as I enjoy tournaments, this thing is literally a fun killer that needs to be dealt with very soon.
