So our tournaments like Quick #xx are set up where two tiers could be used (5-6,7-8,9-10). However, EVERYONE knows that if you come with all tier 5, you’re going to lose. Or all tier 7. Or all tier 9.

 

Why shouldn’t each tier have its own tournament? I understand the idea that someone might not have a tier 6 or 8 or 10 but still want to participate, but making all tier 5/7/9 useless isn’t the answer. If they don’t have even tier 6, then have a level playing field and make a tier 5 tournament.

 

I have no tier 10, but I have a maxed T-54 that I’d love to use in a tournament, except using it in a tier 10 tourney means a loss for my team. I have tier 7s that’d be awesome to use in a tournament (Drac, E25, M6A3E1, SU-122-44, SP 1 C, Type 62...), but it’s just not feasible. Nobody uses the lower tier, so just take it away and make it its own tournament

Stop,trying to make changes to the system the try hands have found all the loopholes too.......they don't wanna play a tank that requires patience , skill and tactical understanding ....they want a slow moving camp machine with 205 mm gun......it's not team based play anymore....it's cash grab give the whineass wallet warriors what they need to keep spending blindly......those of us who like historical tanks and to drive them have to just deal with the fuken window licking clowns now.

I remember BPL doing tier-point system to require matchups to include lower tiers .

So we had to use (2) tier9's or (1) tier8 with rest of tier10's.  This was so much fun

Only tier8 used then was RU.. still able to do something

What was this whole rant? Are you drunk??? :teethhappy:

 

I think you need a lesson in skills and tactics but that wasn’t even what the thread was about. Btw how’s that Jg.Tiger 8,8 doing?

WG had to put in a feature where you can get UpToured in a tourney because the wait was getting too long. Last tourney we had a 10 minute wait an opponent in tier 10. Now split all those tiers and you increase wait times. If you can't bring a tier 6 don't tourney. With the new streamlined (re: nerfed) tech tree you can get to teir 6 in a jiffy, long before you are any good at it.

 

Still IF there were enough players I wouldn't mind seeing an all 7 or 9 tourney to add some variety (Clan Wars is doing that now). I'd also like to see an all TOG tourney but everyone knows I have not recovered from that head injury.

We have run all tier 5’s in a tier 6 tournament several times. It’s fun and I can only imagine how much it annoys the other team. Especially when they still lose.

Maybe if you’re a unicum :P I am not, and usually the team I’m on is comprised of upper 40%ers to mid 50%ers

True, I guess wait times are an issue. It’d be nice if WG made an in-game tourney recruitment thing (like the old GC?)

For quick tournaments, which don't mean anything anyway, I would like to see them switch it up every now and then - e.g. every third set of quick tournaments, run 5, 7, 9 instead of 6, 8, 10. But I really don't feel strongly about it.

That’s actually a really good idea
