Good idea to make tournaments less intresting - groups of 4 , no groupstage awards and lower awards .

Way to go .

This is hugely dissapointing but kind of fits in with what is happening to this game at the moment .

So, there are no more t4 cups, we got instead twice per week t6 - both for 1v1 and 3v3. Maybe it will be better to replace one 1v1 and one 3v3 t6 cups with t4 instead. But I don't care a lot, cos will most likely stop playing these cups, as the prizes were nerfed (again), but this time into oblivion. Maybe winning gold from playoffs now will be a little bit easier, as I will need to win 4 PO battles instead of 5 or 6, but yet the chance is low, the new prizes are miserable, and the removing of the rewards from group stage sucks big time. Hopefully in the future the rewards for group stage will return, but it seems WG are pushing the players in the ranked battle mode instead of the tournaments.

Hello,

 

In tournament Fri #1 3v3 Title says it's Tier 10, but in tournament info it's t6. Which one it really is?

Au contraire!

 

With 4 groups we're fixing an issue of a lot of afk teams. Plenty of teams after losing 2 or 3 games give up. Meaning a lot of rounds are free wins.

Gold problem in the groups is that many many teams would take it and simply AFK  in the tournament. We want to remove this kind of behavior and offer rewards to those commit to the tournament fully.

 

The rewards are lower indeed but the amount of tournaments is increased. Additionally, we'll have multiple playoffs so 1st place can be won by 1,2,3 or any amount of teams (depending on sign ups)

I know this step may not look well by many of you playing but we made necessary steps to keep the tournaments healthy and to be able to provide you more and better tournaments in the future.

 

We'll give our best to make a lot of weekend tournaments with really good rewards, the daily tournaments are there to entertain you during the week and prepare for weekend madness :)

 

Cheers!

These are daily tournaments, expect a lot of weekly ones, a lot of tournaments with our community for our supported languauges.

As for 5v5 and 7v7 there will be plenty of both in the future. We simply changed the daily tournament structure, we'll definitely add 5v5 and 7v7 but most likely during the weekend periods.

Hello there,

 

We're not trying to push players anywhere. Ranked or Tournaments or Random, whatever fits you. I personally would love to have the whole EU server playing tournaments but that's unrealistic right :)

Group stage gold didn't have a logic in the whole tournament economy, for various reasons but I do understand why players don't like this decision.

Hey,

 

Thanks! Always look at the title. I fixed the tournament settings to show T10

just 2 questions from me:

 

1. Why no rewards for group stage? (even like old 1vs1 will be ok due to smaller number of battles)

2. Why you dont mix a bit tiers? Its boring to see same tiers for such a long time. Instead of adding same tournament twice (tier 6. i.e.) why you dont add tier 5, 7, 3...etc?

Are the 5v5 tournaments also going to use the multiple playoffs format or the current one with only one winner?

Better be some really good weekend tournaments since this weekly thing is something that is completely not worth it to play. Like this thing almost makes CW worthwhile which doesn't really give anything anyway. I hope you realized that when you decided to make these.

Hey Swoopie!

 

It actually depends, it can be both. For example if we do end of the year event where we need to get 10 teams to play vs streamers then we'll have 10 playoffs. 

This format of multiple playoffs is mainly designed for daily tournaments where you have lower rewards but better spreading. But for bigger events it may be other way around, 1 playoff but bigger rewards and more spread with even top 64 getting rewards for example.

 

We'll see how this structure is functioning and then see can we squeeze 5v5 permanently as a daily cup. There's a big chance for that but not immediately.

Well, we cannot have it as it was before. Where it was worth it too much. In group stage you'd need even 2 wins maybe 3 to get 300 gold. 

Decent teams will reach top places and win rewards and with more opportunities it's not as bad as it seems.

Rewards got lower once again so tournaments are becoming (once again) less and less popular. I don't wanna blame you guys too much because obviously it's the head of Wargaming (or at least not you) who desides how much gold can be distributed. When less gold is distributed, players will have to buy more premium tanks, premium account etc. to be competitive in the game. And as Wargaming is a company, I understand that they are trying to maximise the winnings.

 

Now when that part is over; the prizes are a joke. I hope WG realizes that when there's no players playing the game, you won't get any money. Tournaments and CW is not worth playing. Random battles are unplayable without shooting premium ammo. Buff armor, nerf accuracy, make city maps, release op premium tanks, this game is becoming unplayable.

 

I understand that you can't really do much about it so I'll tell my opinion of the new tournaments. 5/10 tournaments are 1v1 which is a bit too much. Also I don't understand why is the tier IV replaced with tier X, many of the tier IV players doesn't even have tier X, and as the prizes are so low I don't think there will be much good players to get some competitive gaming.

 

Now that you made a new set of tournaments, the rules STILL tells to report on the forums if you are missing gold after two weeks. The two week line hasn't been true for a long time, will you actully try to make it happen or are you (still) too lazy to fix it?

Well that just tell how low the prizes were, not to even mention how low they are now. For 30% of the teams it just wasn't worth to play playoffs.

Well, the reason above is a really bad reason, could you tell me some more of the various reasons?

Why are you telling this when you for sure know it's not true? To get 300 gold you always need to win 4/5 battles. Even then if you lose the 5th battle you wont necessarily get 300.

well done managed to make cups useless. group gold was the reason to play. chance of getting any playoff gold has always been very very small. u say u want to reward commitment then give gold in every round in playoffs. even little will make it more tempting and getting players to play.
