oh i see thx :)

 

 

 so this will be our opinion for this new tournament mode:

1. the time is about right for this server 19:00 UTC+7, no more waking up waiting people to show up

2. 40 points tanks will be just fine.

3. reserve player could add some like 2-3 reserve player.

4. the map could be more than just 3 though.

and some suggestion, how about we cannot see what map we will be playing like team company or team battle mode.

so we(team) had to make a fix tank choice. so team should be prepare in any map.

the team will depends on flowing tactics and not just tanks that they can bring in some map.

just a suggestion to make it more fun :D

 

and thas it from "Warung Kopi" team. see ya in battle

So we have to give you feedback before the tournament to claim any prizes? And is that feedback from every member of the team?

As much as I enjoy flying around in an M24 Chaffee, war of 5s would be more interesting if you Tier limited scouts to T4. There's some feedback for you.

5/40 is a perfect match number. all tier8 5 members easier to create a team. 

since only 5 members each side, suggest to limit to small map or custom map for it. if it is large map, it will be difficult to battle within 10 min.

Team captain's feedback is necessary. And we also welcome other feedback for your team members! But don't forget to send the screenshot after tournament battles!

I dont see the point of 5/40 when it will be similar if not the same combat type as 7/42 but a little more campy because of teams having no tier 1s to scout ahead.

We just deleted our team, we had a talk and tanks is suppose to be fun what you are asking us to do is not fun. One guy said he has to write reports for his boss, he's not going to do it for a game. So thanks but we will give this one a miss.

I like the idea of 5/40, small team size makes it easier to get team members and should produce more teams. Map sizes need to be on the smaller side.

it is  easy to get a member coz it;s only 6 on each team.But it has so many requirements to  join and to claim the prize.Can you make it simple like the WGL 7/42?

1.) Tier8 limit is fine lots of great tanks to choose from.

2.) 7 Tanks max is fine, 5 tanks are too few for some of the large maps and might make the game boring.

3.) Increase max tier point limit to maybe 44 points, 46 points or 48 points to allow creative usage of low tier light tanks/ arty etc.

Mandatory feedback for prize eligibility from every team member BEFORE and AFTER is overkill and very off putting!! If it were up to just me I would delete the team as others have done or just play without submitting feedback forfeiting the right to any prizes but I don't want to let my team members down.

 

Feedback from the team captain just the once would be have been a more reasonable request.

 

The option for all team members to give voluntary feedback would have provided you with plenty of ideas without alienating those who don't wish to contribute as I'm sure there are many very enthusiastic tankers who would be happy to share their ideas.

I'm enjoying the (no tier 1) in this tournament, they really are pointless other than a 1 shot scout role, it brings closer engagement for both teams, an force's the change of tank choices! AEST starting times are around 10pm which is getting late for the Aussies. 3 maps really? there are plenty more maps that can cater for this tournament, if you were going to continue this maybe introduce a few more for verity. Other than that I'm looking forward to it! GO VG!
