Hey guys! On behalf of the Iron cavalry, I'm starting a 7/42 tournament! Teams can be clans, or any group of players you can get together who would like to play for you.

What is 7/42?:

7/42 is a special game mode in which teams of up to 7 players each may select tanks worth up to 42 tier points, with tanks no higher than tier VIII(So no tier IX or X tanks). For each player less than 7 that a team brings, they forfeit a tier point. For example, most teams field 5 tier 8s and 2 tier 1s. However, if they only field 6 players, they can only field 5 tier 8s and 1 tier 1(Not a tier 2) since by only fielding 6 players, they forfeit one of their 42 tier points. While the most common/effective setups are generally composed of 5 tier VIIIs and 2 tier Is, any other valid combination may be used (i.e: 7 tier VIs ; 2 tier IIs, 3 tier VIIIs, and 2 tier VIIs ; 4 tier VIIIs, 1 tier VII, 1 tier II etc...)

Unfair play - Unfair play includes: Intentional losing, the use of tank skins showing modules, and unnecessary chatting. Unnecessary chatting is defined as any chatting that is not included in the following list: greeting messages, end of game acknowledgements (i.e "GG"), disconnection notifications, or notifications of illegal team setups. Teams engaging in unfair play will forfeit the match.

 

 

So .. no smack talk during the battle?

 

I'm out.


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Neat! I wonder if Mahou will participate? Probably wouldn't let me play anyway, I'm too scrubby :P

It's called 7/42 because there are only 7 players total.

And I'm perfectly sure I'll take you on with 41 other T1s. You won't win.

What am I going to drive? A KV-4. Have fun penning that.

 

On another note, thanks for hosting the event, Panzer! I have a team ready and we're in it to win it!

Well, that's DURING the battle. You can smack talk all you want in the training room chat though!

Seriously no premium tanks? I understand the IS-6, IS 3D, and some others May be annoying but what about low tier prems like Angry Connor or the PZ. Anko SP they are not going to be as big an issue as the other tanks it would make a little more sense for no tier 7 or 8 premium tanks.

Send 41 T1s to form a wall and send 1 to cap.

In one corner, 40 T1 Cunninghams, each weighing a whopping 7 tons! In the other corner, a single KV-4, weighing in at 106 tons! Bridge sumo time :P

Well, they can only choose 5 IS3's. 2 of the slots have to be tier Is. And a lineup of all IS3s is not without weaknesses. They will struggle on some hilly maps due to poor gun depression, and especially mines against a lighter lineup.

This is a bad rule.

 

Someone is going to "chat" - -then the other team will demand a forfeit because someone said "nice shot" when they died..

It's 7/42 format not 7/56...


I have quit the game for now.  It is no longer what I began playing in 2014, and while change is not inherently bad, it is also not inherently good either.

I talked to my clan mates, and that clause is to prevent IS3D spam. I don't really expect any teams to field anything other than tier 8's and 1's.

Just keep quiet during the match, and you should be fine.

It doesn't have to be clans. You just have to PM me a clan name and a team captain.

It's one of the best Tier 8 TD's right now unless you're suggesting that TDs won't work here...I really hope this doesn't devolve into 5 IS-3's and 2 Cunningham's like WGLNA on PC

Nah, I'm pretty certain that 5 IS-3s will not win against a fairly competent team.

Also, PC mode has a lot more tanks to choose from, like AMX 50 120, T69, 110, etc.
