Heya Tankers!

 

So - we tried out the whole separated by input type. With only 9 teams signing up for the KB/M tournament - it had to be cancelled. An unfortunate event, but we need at minimum of 64 Teams registered in order to run a Blitz Brawl - Battlegrounds style tournament.

 

Due to this, we are putting a stop to the separation of input types in regular tournaments. In major tournaments that may end up with an offline portion - there may need to be separation in order to assure consistency across teams, but that will be a bridge we cross when we come to it!

 

For now we plan on adjusting the remaining tournaments in February to allow both control types. This does present us with an interesting opportunity. We have prizing scheduled for tournaments that no longer need to happen. The prizing is also hard coded so I cannot customize the amounts.

 

Let's run some other tournaments alongside the regular high tier ones! The big question is what should the variables be? Post your ideas below!

 

Controllable Variables 

  • Tier Limit 
  • Team Size (Must all be in the same clan)
  • Number of players allowed in the battle (1-7)
  • Maps
  • Battle type (Supremacy or Encounter)
  • Round Robin / Double Elimination / Single Elimination Style
    • Blitz Brawl / Blitz Battlegrounds Style
  • First to 1, 2, or 3 wins
  • etc.

Notes

  • Win rates/Skill ARE NOT filters we can use.
  • Seeding is random.

Tier 9-10 only.

 

So many clans signed up not knowing they would be fighting 7 tier 10s in their little T-43. It's not fair to them and it's not fun for us. 

 

Maybe add a tier 7-8 tourney for those interested, but don't have tier 9/10?

Finally you realize that KB/M doesn't have an advantage over Touch! This is a good step for competitive gameplay and will improve the overall quality and diversity of gameplay.

 

As for suggestions, i would like to see some 1 game single elimination tournaments at tier 5,7, and 8. I think these tiers have a good variety of competitive tanks and the gameplay would be more intense and less time consuming. In other words, a single elimination tournament is more accessible to the player base.  

 

As far as map choice and supremacy vs encounter, i would like that to be determined by a vote from both teams. 

 

Edit: Only allow tier 7 vehicles in the tier 7 tournament for example.

I like the idea of having a tier 5-7 tourney and 9-10. No tier 8 tourney tho lol. 

 

I kid about tier 8, but having a "top tier" tourney and a "mid-tier" tourney is a good idea.

Weeeeeeell...

 

It's not necessarily that KBM or touch has an advantage over another, it's just that the KBM tournament completely flopped so WG said "welp, let's not do that."

But why would it be separated in the first place? 

 

Because WarGaming and a large portion of the player base thought it had an advantage.

Also, some suggestions

 

  • Make some smaller team tournaments, ie 5v5 tournament with two subsitutes per team
  • Try tournaments on different days than every single tuesday and saturday/sunday
  • Spell 'separation' correctly
  • Have a blind mode where you can't see the enemy team when the room invite is out
  • For every tier X Blitz Brawl, have a lower tier tournament with a different tier each time (not always tier 7)

Where did you see the word "advantage" in CC_Sly's post?

 

It's cancelled because of lack of participation. Not which platform has advantage or not.

I am a KB/M player because i don't have a mobile device capable of running Blitz. However, rumors have always been around that it for some reason had an advantage. People complain about auto aim, and they even thought KB/M had more zoom. All of this is false, and im glad WG is officially recognizing it.

Yes, a friend of mine plays on mobile and I have tried on his account. Imo its basically the same just with different controls. You are either good at one or the other.

Did your 'friend' have a, persay, LTTB or any other fast tank for that matter that you had a chance to run? Just curious.

Having played on both, it is really just a matter of preference and availability.
