"Ivan, how do we improve tournaments and participation?"
"Boss, I know the solution. We lower the rewards and make them lose more credits than they will get as a reward."
"That is genius Ivan, we're already milking them with containers, might as well destroy their credit stash so they are forced to play the game and buy more premium tanks!"

While I joke, there is a serious issue with the regular tournament setup for tier X. I don't wish to take away from the decent prizing that the large tournament this weekend had, but there are still very active tournament teams that look to play several times a week in tier X tourneys and tend to run into 1 or 2 problems. First problem is the tier X quick tourney system. Many times for example, an odd number of teams will make it to tour 3 or tour 4 of the quick tourney and while an even number of team will get matched, there will be an odd team out and will be stuck waiting for an opponent that simply wont arrive. The second problem is the prizing of the standard weekend tourneys. While these weekend tourneys may have been given larger images in-game, the prizes are still horrifically low and teams can easily have a net loss or break even in credits even if they win the tourney. The high credit cost of vehicle repairs and ammunition resupply causing the drain on credits. If WG would really like to see more people participate in Tier X tournaments on the NA server, they need to drastically improve the rewards and not simply re-brand the tournament image to mask the underlying problem. 
(Also to be very clear, I am not criticizing all tier X tournaments, merely the weekly ones. I think WG's E-Sports division should be commended for the creation of such tournaments like the Professionals Tournament and their continued involvement in massive offline events like the Amazon Mobile Masters.)

NA will become the next Asia, working as intended.

Hello! 

We've not made the rewards for regular tournaments higher, because of we did not want to make Off-Season regular tournaments like a place, where you can receive much more stuff than in the random battles. Off-Season tournaments are training platform before the upcoming Season for clans which want to reach the new heights.

Yes. Now it’s like a place where there’s no life, no activity and vast empty space.

Did you realize that your game is becoming increasingly painful to play?

 

The game itself is not what is defective, it is the lack of an appropriate skill barrier of +/-2 MM. You have dealt permanent damage to this game.

The problem with that is that you can play like 3 pub battles in the time it takes to put together a tournament battle... I might be exaggerating a little, but seriously that's B S and u know it 
"Newer Player"

I'm working to improve my winrate. Currently: 45% 46% 47% 48%  49% 50% 51%ish >>> 30 days is 60% ... Currently working to become a unicum, and all tips are appreciated!

Make the game more playable for wot fans and not kids on their phones that is all I ask. And anything arcadey with a timer and freemium has to go I have been waiting what feels like years so i can get some compensation for the ridiculous amount of money i spent. Had I known the game would in this direction... “Passion” development, to profit development.

You bet. When blitz was released comparatively it was an amazing game probably the most serious and optimized game on mobile. But now it is apparent that it is tailored to the platform in a bad way. Heres a good example AAA games “ported” to mobile have content

targeting its orginal audience, but not coincidently it is far more than that because it improves on the game and subtracts nothing.. But with an obvious change in buininess model wotb took a 180 and is increasingly becoming a  “spinoff”. I understand that some things arent working but what happened to “continuing the experience on the go” is that no longer profitable?? Im just going to say it straight up; mobile tools, features, develoment and everything in between mirroring other platforms is the gaming industries future.
