Bump must have written those news :D

Anyway, you should add some information about 7on7 to the eSport guide. Those questions about T1s used in 7on7 are repeated every time there is a WPL stream :D

We will be making some sort of FAQ soonish, we may include that too. I need to call Niklemos to help out  :glasses:

Could we possibly see less of these news stories on the launcher? I look on the launcher news feed to see what specials are on, please put esports announcements somewhere else. If I care about esports, I will go look for it, would rather not have it forced down my throat.

Well, i am quite doubtful when it comes to Wargaming EU and e-sport. My recent experiences tell me that one has to waste so much time that its basically not worth it.

For the "8.5 strong start" competition, as example, every other server has the results - WG EU however doesnt even have the *data* itself, 12 days after the competition ended...
... before that, in the 8.4 competition, many players (including me) had to go back and forth and back and forth with support, as WG EU forgot a whole server (EU#2), and after days having support explained me that "only base xp, no specials, no doubles" would be taken into the consideration as answer to my screenshots+replays stating "base xp, no special, no double", they realized & finally admitted that their leaderboard was wrong and after some more days, suddenly 3 tanks won...

i am not sure if i want to have that level of stress for esports, i guess i will rather stay away from wgs e-sport offers until they get their basic office&communication to an acceptable level, its no fun to wait like 2 weeks for results + having no information at all for a week, no leaderboards etc.

That is not part of  the eSports I'm afraid.

eSports stress is something that players like a lot, especially the stressful situations when they play the final games. Winning the tournament is not easy, but it's rewarding.

"World of Tanks is now a big player on the world eSport scene"

so when are you planning to balance the game
as the game grows older it becomes more imba with wg's RNG-power creep-idiot friendly-greedy policy

What I seem to miss is why these Wargaming tournaments are still not fully automated? It cannot be that hard to count the tier points, the type of vehicles and the number of players while still in the lobby. The system should be able to determine if the teams fullfill the requirements and otherwise tell them what is wrong. After the battle, this same system should also be able to determine; who has won, or if it was a draw; if one of the teams has met the required tierpoint difference for victory.

BO1 rounds: 10 minutes of battle, 10 minutes break, 10 minutes battle, 10 minutes break (example: round 1 - 19:00, round 2 - 19:20, round 3 - 19:40)

Victory conditions: Kill all enemies or capture the enemy base.
If draw: The system calculates how many tierpoints are still alive per team, if the difference is greater than the required amount, this team passes to the next round, otherwise both are disqualified.


BO3 rounds: 10 minutes battle, 5 minutes break, 10 minutes battle, 5 minutes break, 10 minutes battle, 10 minutes break (example: round 4.1 - 20:00, round 4.2 - 20:15, round 4.3 - 20:30, round 5.1 - 20:50, round 5.2 - 21:05, round 5.3 - 21:20).

Victory or tierpoint difference gives one team 1 point, draw without tierpoint difference gives both teams a point.

Example:
Team A - Team B
1 - 0 (base captured by team A)
0 - 1 (all enemies killed by team B)
1 - 0 (9 tierpoint difference for team A)
score: 2-1 (Team A is through to the next round)

Team C - Team D
1 - 0 (all enemies killed by team C)
0 - 1 (12 tierpoints difference for team D)
1 - 1 (0 tierpoints difference for both teams)
score: 2 - 2 (Both teams are disqualified)


BO5 rounds: round 6.1 starting at 21:30, round 6.2 starting at 21:45, etc.

Victory or tierpoint difference gives one team 1 point, draw without tierpoint difference gives both teams a point.


Alternative schedule for BO3 and BO5: If round 4.1 ends at 20:04, round 4.2 can start 5 minutes later at 20:09. Round 4.2 ends at 20:18, then round 4.3 starts at 20:23.


Would such a system work? It at least wil speed up the endless waiting times and cups do bot have to split over 4/5 days. Sign-up could start just two days in advance and cups could be held more often.

Hm, imho it should be:

- its a competition for the best xp; but it lacks any ranking / league table / leaderboard / ladder / current positions.
- the best players win prices as gold and tanks; but the awarding lacks any professionalism, is erroneous and/or slow etc, no cool show at all
- it requires pretty good or even off-the-scale good players, luck, endurance sometimes to score one of the server-wide top 100 matches of the month; but if i understand it correctly these events are handled by... yeah, by who? the CC?CM? Marketing? why not e-sport?
- the top 100 contests offer all the necessary drama/suspense etc, the winning games are often QUITE entertaining "one-man-army vs 15+14" matches, and i personally srsly prefer a great solo-performance over a trained "ballet-style" as its typically much more entertaining; but wargaming e-sport ignores the most played mode of the game (random) and only promotes special modes (as esl/company/cw)?

I know that several veteran players like me, who are not interested in ESL & CW, as those need to be planned ahead and one can´t participate if one (as i have) flexible working hours prefer the top100 contests.
Also, the typical WOT-match is NOT cw or company - its random; so why cut off THE most popular and most played game-mode?

It would be so easy, as you have all the data already. Simply add a league table / ladder and make it a permanent event, maybe with a variation of tanks every week or month who participate.

That would certainly make me participate in e-sport.

Well, not in the case of the top100 challenges; those are not rewarding, but rather frustrating to participate.
Lackluster awarding, sloppy analysis of the results and no league table / ladder / leaderboard at all.

I dont understand why you throw away this opportunity, server wide top100s i guess, no, i am pretty sure, would become the most popular wot esport pretty fast.
CW & company however always will stay a niche for few player, and honestly, only a tiny fraction of the wot players even care; 95-99% are not interested at all.
