1. Rewards offered were very inadequate (very small amounts of gold/and or credits)

2. Using boosters as tournament rewards isn't a good idea; I'm not going to drop everything I'm doing, (and leave work early) just to jump on blitz for a tournament, and get 50 boosters as reward for winning. Instead:

3. Offering Spare Parts (and in large quantities, 15-25k would be nice) or increase the gold/credits given out as the reward for winning the tournament.

 

And last but not least, please please please make sure all the bugs are worked out before reintroducing tournaments into blitz. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to get 7-9 guys together, geared up and ready, only to have the tournament cancelled, with no warning and very little compensation. (if at all.) I am more than willing to wait a few more weeks if need be, if I knew the tournaments would work as intended. 

Thanks for all you're doing! Keep it up!

 

edit: And I would make increasing the Spare part drop rate a priority over tournaments. You would have 1000's of happy players if you were to increase that, as opposed to a few hundred players excited for tournaments.

1. Rewards were increased since the last time tournament series took place on NA )

2. Boosters are additional reward. Anyway sometimes you can use them and find pretty helpful )

3. For the Gold series IX-X (example) 1st place in each group will receive 15K Spare parts per player now.

 

About technical issues: our technical specialists already checking tournament system for any problems which we potentially can face. I can not guarantee that we will never face any issues again but we are ready to solve them asap.

About your "edit": pretty interesting idea! Will resend it to my colleagues.

Dear players!

 

Now you can check tournament series for the next week. They are published in the game client.

Please check start time and regulations for everything is OK. If you will find any mistakes - please let me know (I'm sorry in advance if something is wrong, I'm pretty new on NA and a little bit worrying about is everything OK).

 

You can find full regulations on the forum threads:

 

 

Also please don't forget about poll I created. Your opinion is very important!

We have had multiple experienced clan members create a team and attempt to register but invited players (all members of our clan), are not receiving the invitations.  The team shows up as "enrolling", the team roster shows several players invited, but no invitations received by the players.  So, we are unable to get players registered, which means we cannot complete the team registration.

 

Why are tournaments so buggy?  Is there no beta testing going on, or are we doing that on the production systems now?

Also having invite/registration issues.

 

Many East Coast members unable to play because of such a late start time at 11 pm. Most of us have family and jobs, 11pm is an unrealistic start time.

Hello!

 

Sorry for technical issues. Please try to create your team now. Problem with players invitations was solved.

Niora,

 

As one who is not interested in Tournaments - can you please advise me on how to turn off the notifications that Tournaments are available?

 

I had to click into about 15 tournaments just to make the darn blue numbers go away.

 

Please -- tell me how to turn that off!!!

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.

I think there is a "mark all read" button in the lower right corner.

It's bottom left corner to turn off new notifications.

 

invites and registration are working now.

 

need to figure out a way to do 2 different start times. One for east coast and the other for west coast, central can pick from either that suits them better. May need to ditch the silver/bronze format, that's 6 tourneys in one night. No wonder there are so many glitches.

Why so? Try to re-enter the tournaments page. There are a lot of tournaments, at least 8 for the next week.

I can confirm that if your internet connection is occasionally sketchy you will sometimes see no tournaments and be forced to "refresh" the tabs by either going back to main menu or going to "current" or "previous" and then returning to "future". The tournaments are still all there.
