Heya Tankers - We have run into an issue with this tournament.

 

The TL;DR version -

Groups of Death are broken and now this tournament will not resolve to a finished state. Prizes will be awarded normally but Groups of Death can no longer happen and this tournament may be stuck in "Current" until HQ fixes it.

 

Now the longer explanation:

Groups of Death seem not to balance the seeding automatically. They take the remainder of the teams and shove them into a group rather than spreading it out between several groups. What this looks like is instead of 6-8 groups being 7 teams instead of 8, we are left with a group of 2 or less sometimes. When this happens, since there is a 3rd place, the game tries to find teams that do not exist for the 3rd place match and play that match. At this point everything goes south and the tournament is stuck.

 

We have the data for who won what - I will just have to credit them out manually instead of using the automatic prizing system. Prizes should be credited by the end of the week at latest.

 

We have brought this to the attention of the devs and as they work to fix it we will have to return to the Random seeding we have been using previously.

Imagine that, an issue with Tournaments.

 

That never happens.

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.

Sly,

 

Don't worry, the latest trend is for clans to load the the nine slots with a couple low WR players to bring down comp level.

 

This kind of reminds me of a well known strip joint in Nashville.

 

Their billboard reads, "38 beautiful women and 2 ugly ones".

 

:P

Looks like my clan's team got placed in pergutory for this tourny. Are there issues across-the-board, or just certain teams? This in reference to the v/vi that was to srart at 8pm central tonigbt.

My clan (FL-TH) signed up for the tier 5/6 tournament last night, 17th May. After sign up closed we received a messaged that stated: "The teams participation in this tournament has ended in accordance with the Regulations". It seems 100 teams registered for this tournament and only 75 gained an actual place in a league. Can we please have some explanation as to what happened last night? We would like to know if this was some kind of error or on purpose. I'm sure this is equally disappointing for the 24 other teams who showed up and expected to play. Thanks.
