Seems cool, shame I'm not around but I'm sure lots will enjoy it, although I can imagine it will be a 3v3 capping/killing contest as 95% of players will get to the cap circle about the same time. But great idea players - get all your team to focus one enemy tank on the race to the cap as it improves your chances of killing all in the cap circle

 

Hey WG, perhaps let us know a little earlier next time please?

This has been the biggest delay that we could have with keeping the secrecy factor in. :B

But why do you want to keep it a secret? (or misinterpretation)

Not really keeping it a secret, but having a slight "taste" of secrecy.

I can see your idea for the "anticipation" but it's kind of counter-productive. Take me as an example; I'm in my 40s and Sat night is usually date night with the wife and on Sunday nights we cuddle up and watch a film. Friday is my dedicated gaming night but, with notice, I can change my gaming night for special stuff (usually CW or clan game nights etc). These are arranged a good couple of weeks in advance so those that are interested can plan ahead. I'm not the best player around and therefore this type of event (to a degree) levels the playing field and therefore I want to play. Then this weekend is probably "millionaire's weekend" (payday) for most and they will have planned to go out rather than stay in - ergo not playing tanks; so yet again you are limiting your audience.

 

I appreciate your ongoing effort to provide us with new content etc etc but probably my biggest issue is the lack of notice for events.

Hi!

I was wondering what date it takes place? I want to participate, but the date is not very obvious: In the article it says it takes place 28th - 29th, but on the tournament page, it says it takes place the 29th, and play offs are the 5th of october? What day and what time is it?

 

Best regards

Swb2_Player

Post Administrators, please pass this information to the developers!

Wargaming, reopen the ability to join the race for everybody as you have announced wrong information about this event right from the begining. Many people were led to believe that the pick-crew deadline will be available until 24th of September.

 

Here, the community has found your information posted on Spanish webpage version (imagine how many people missed the oportunity to join the race!) (I don't know why this webpage is making this picture small, it's actualy large):

info_bigrace_5_es.jpg

Also, on English version, you have stated that the team-pick deadline will be until the 23rd of September, but failed to mention the exact time. Which lead many people to believe that the deadline will end, as all weekend missions do, on the Tuesday morning.

 

Also, you have mentioned that people who will not chose the team now will be able to do it later.

 

CORRECT YOUR MISTAKE WARGAMING - REOPEN THE TEAM-PICK ABILITY NOW - SAVE YOUR EVENT - TIME IS CRITICAL!
