You can already register here on our tournament page. Next one is a Tier 4 1v1 tournament.

You can refer to the Tournaments page on the WoT portal. The date of each individual category has been stated. :)

Please note that these dates are displayed in my timezone format, and yours may very well differ from mine. So please visit the Tournaments page yourself for the most accurate dates and times.

When it is around 15 minutes prior to the start of the category you registered, there should be a small box appearing at the bottom left of your screen next to general chat called "Special Battles" or something. When it pops up, you can click it, and in it, you should see the upcoming match. Click on the match and you should see a team panel. Either use the arrow on the screen or double-click yourself to transfer to the main team (so that your name and the names of your teammates if applicable appear on the right of the panel). After that, you must click the button at the bottom to indicate you are ready.

It used to be Gold Galore long time ago, when the reward for 1-st place was 10000 gold, but more important - groups were of 6 teams, and there were gold prizes for 1-st, 2-nd and 3-rd place there, respectively 350, 200 and 100 gold. Then WG decided they were too generous and started to nerf the prizes, again and again... And the last nerf happened 1-2 months ago, when the prizes for t9 got slightly cut.

I was also mostly disappointed by the last Advent calendar, where at least 80% of the offers were either trash or available in bond/gold shop or already presented in 2019's calendar, so gold is not so valuable currency nowadays.

WTF is this?
I waited on ready with my P46 on EU2 for T8 battles, ALL 3 of them, and after countdown i just got that notification, no match, no nothing.

WHAT IS A TECHNICAL DEFEAT, and why did i get defeated in garage. 

 

What are the mechanics behind these decisions? This is literally 30 minutes of waiting for NOTHING. I even had better PR than 2/3 enemies.
What are the criteria? Is it because i picked Progetto 46 and they picked.. idk O-HO's? or something? and the game just decided its an automatic loss?

T6: Cromwell

T8: AMX50-100

T10: not sure

no, the 1v1 tier 6-8-10 was on 6th january. on 7th is 2v2 etc. Check the dates. In tier 6 i fought etc, but when i got at T8, even tho i was ready and waiting to start the battle, it just automatically decided i lost and drawed. 
For tier 10 i just didnt bother going in anymore, waste of time.

This is not a game mode or an special event. You can always join the daily tournaments from our Tournament page on our official portal.

You just need to pick a tournament, find or create a team if needed and then log in and wait for the notification.
Good luck!

No in-game interface for now, the process is still the same and you need to register via our portal like any other official tournaments. 

 

 

I see a lot of confusion and I just want to clarify that this is not a limited time event or a special game mode that you can find in game. 

Those are the daily and monthly tournaments available for everyone on our Tournaments portal. If you wish to learn more about it, please refer to our Tournament guide

A technical defeat is when your team was not able to actually make it into the game. Check that you and all your teammates have been transferred to the Main Team (the panel on the right), and that everyone has readied up.

Stole this screenshot from a friend of mine, upon joining the special battle as it pops up in your game, you will first be placed in the queue (red arrow), you must then transfer yourself (and all your other teammates if applicable) to the Main Team on the right (blue arrow). When you are ready to fight, click the "Ready" button at the bottom (orange arrow). Every player in the Main Team must be ready in order for the match to happen.

If your team fails to ready up when the game is scheduled to start, it will be counted as a technical defeat, and the team that was scheduled to fight against you will get a technical victory.
