I'm out, can't tank sober, that's why my stats are so bad.


 

Will fennel stem powder be permitted?  Does that count as equipment or would that be considered cheating?

It says tiers I-X. If your team enters with all tier I, will you face tier X or is MM +/- rules still in place?

Order unlocked: T110E5, IS-7, T110E4 & STB-1.

Anyone have some spare credits, send my way please and thanks.

You will face whatever the other team brings, which can be any combination of Tier I-X.

In the rules it says you must bring your own equipment and you must not have any illegal "computer programs".

 

It does not state anywhere in specific about the use of computers however.

 

I would like to clear up some confusion. My team wants to attend the Blitz Twister cup but 2 members only use Laptops to run windows 10 and have never used an Ipad or Iphone. Is it still within the rules for them to attend if they bring their laptops and they have no illegal mods etc.

Just to be clear - if one team is all tier 8 and the other team is all tier 10 the match will start regardless?  If Yes - this means that the only people that will be playing the tournament are those with tier 10 tanks?  

 

So why announce the tournament as tier 1-10?

That is correct.

 

Why announce it like that - because maybe someone has a Tier IX tank that works perfect with their teams X's. We wanted to keep it open to any possible combination. In all likelihood, it will be full teams of Tier X, but it won;t be because we forced the competitive scene to be that way. It will be what it is naturally.

A t95 or a st1 has a very valid use in a tier 10 game. The frontal/turret armor is much heavier and unpennable by most tier 10 guys. Plus it is totally unexpected. Let alone the tier 8 scouts. Insane camo and they retain it while moving. One of these guys could light up an entire team
