I wanted to let you know about some of the upcoming tournaments and some of the changes you will see.
- Instead of an overall prize pool that is divided between the winners, there will be set prizing per place.
- The challenge with this is the initial number you see on the tournament screen. I can put 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 or 9 as inputs and then I select Gold, Credits, or Free XP as the icon. The prizes will be variable as a total due to the prizing per player.
- Control types will be split for most of the tournaments. Touch controls will have one tournament and Keyboard and Mouse will have a second. They will run at the same time and have the same prizing and rules.
- We will restrict the tiers to 9-10 for most of the tournaments. There is a new check in place at registration that requires the team to have a tank that fits the tournament restrictions in order to confirm their participation.
Scheduling and Types
- It is looking like there will be an average of 2 tournaments per week
- The majority of the tournaments will be 2 day tournaments (Blitz Brawl - Battlegrounds Style)
- We will have two Tier 7 Tournaments
- Supremacy for all the tournaments
So that is what I can share for now - keep an eye out on the tournaments menu. Prizing is still a bit low but it is what it is. I am still fighting to get it a bit higher.
Supremacy is still what is being pushed so - expect to see lots of that.
As far as I know here is what is working and I will continue to do unless given other feedback - if anyone has feedback or suggestions let me know here!
- 23 Hour registration window ending 1 hour before the start of the tournament
- Tournaments start at 17:00 PST and usually run ~ an hour and a half.
- For a single stage tournament (Blitz Brawl Style) - 128 teams seems to be a good number
- For two stage tournaments (Blitz Brawl - Battlegrounds Style) - 256 teams seems to be a good number
- I am worried about splitting the KB/M and Touch control crowds - putting the KB/M version down to 128 teams.
