Any suggestions for players that have zero chance to reach top 8 , and lets be frank , teams with regular players or even worse , have just absolutely zero chance for top 8 , any suggestions why regular players would put time and effort in this ?

I need convince players to just join the team and play for fun , while they could play any other mode in wot and have better chance for some kind of reward for the efforts ?  Is it fun to play this tourney while knowing your team is just absolute cannon fodder , good players get more rewards then bad players , and the best get the most -- this is normal ,  but need think what type of player u want competing in your competitive modes , then need to think how this also could be rewarding for mediocre players , mediocre and bad players thats a pretty large part of the player base .

Mediocre and bad players put time and effort in also ,  but play for nothing or only tiny rewards ?

Players that may put more time in then the good players in a mode like ranked , but can never get beyond the lowest division , they play for some less awards then better players yes .  How much will bad clans get out of playing on global map compaired to good clans .

Then the rewards like bonds or reward tanks , that keep increase the gap between good and bad players , so there is not even a level playing field , bad clans will have to win with worse tanks , have worse crews , have less or no special equipment , cant affort to shoot all gold .

There will be a number of teams that will have a chance to reach top 2 , but i would have no problem if WG just hand out 1500 euro to Fame and Invil without even playing this tourney . Just give them the money and add some gold and bonds also .

Then cancel the tourney , and use time to come up with a better structure .

Think about balance all the OP reward tanks that cause problems all the time in all your competitive game modes .

Its a bad situation when OP reward tanks are allowed in any competitive mode they way they are OP now .

Its also a bad situation when players get some reward tank for efforts , but then are not allowed to use in several modes , as WG came to conclusion the tanks are too much OP .  Why we have so many events all the time and almsot nothing stands out anymore .

Got tank wars going on and "highway rock " event just runs at the same time , while there is ranked going on also .

Why not come up with something good instead of all these mediocre events that even overlap a lot of the time also with global map .

Where are the fun and special events , that really have some impact on the WOT playing community .

Instead we get  crappy designed events like highway rock , that have just hardly any impact .

Tank wars another example of just mediocre event that should be way better . Then also all these extra missions etc .

Here we have a special tourney that could be something when done right , but now will only have some small extra impact compaired to the underwhelming tournaments we already have . over 90% of player base will not care or not even notice its happening .

Ill stop as to leave some space for comment from others , not sure if really needed ]

tank gods are extremely time demanding and favor only true champions :(

 

1) most of the events are designed to keep an average player in front of the PC for a couple of hours every day

i heard horror stories from even above-average (52-53% winrate) players wasting 6+ hours every day for 14 days during global map and not being able to get a reward tank

admirable dedication... but i find the concept ridiculous

unhealthy, toxic and potentially very frustrating for most... except the true champions

 

2) and as if the advantage in skill, organization and experience wasnt enough, champions have very likely the advantage of better tanks, equipment, crew, consumables, ammo

 

now back to tournaments - a little less time demanding and at least you dont need 15 humans to align (heck, cant even get 4 guys to agree on a time for beer lately)

but realistically, if some elements of randomness or "little leagues" will not be introduced, then i see no logical reason for anyone without a champion status to join

 

this should be a fun game... not daily chores we perform under the fear of missing out on something

So you want to reward players who play badly, perform badly and essentially do nothing? 

 

That's the point of the tournament to motivate all players to play better and achieve better results and therefore rewards.

Kinda this, the idea is indeed to reward excellence and a high level of play, as well as motivate people to reach these levels. Of course, it is nice to have things for everyone, but this isn't one of those times really.

Not really, the number of people who watch these sorts of things on twitch and youtube tends to disagree. But there isn't much to discuss with these things as it either appeals to your or doesn't (in terms of taking part), but watching it and seeing the high levels of skill tends to appeal to a lot of people.

Make it a fair fight where all players had instant access to the same tank choices, crew skills and top spec equipment just for the tournament then you might get more people interested in participating.

 

The end results probably won't change, the players with the higher skill sets and better teamwork on the day will win, which is natural, but the event would gain numbers and engage more of the playerbase, rather than cater for the top 5% and alienate the rest.
