Players:

  • A team roster must consist of 7 players, and may include up to 4 registered reserve players. Team must be fully registered and accepted before playing. (A reserve player may replace a primary player at any time).
  • Each player can only play for one team in one tournament, cup or championship
  • Any player can change team if they want. Players are not allowed to play for a new team within 10 days of their departure from their old team, and may not take part in any games and tournaments of his new team during this period. This also applies to newly registered players playing for an existing established team but not for entirely new teams.
  • A banned player who’s ban has recently expired cannot play in any new teams or participate in an existing team for 30 days after the expiration of their ban.

Naming:

  • Once the team has been created, it cannot change its name (please be very careful when naming your team).
  • Team and player names must not violate the wargaming.net naming rules; any team violating these rules will be disqualified.
  • Wargaming.net staff or affiliates are not prohibited from playing unless they are part of the tournament administration, these people will be stated. (Only a maximum of 2 Wargaming.net employees and/or affiliates per active team are allowed).

Victory conditions:

  • Each battle lasts for 10 minutes.
  • To win a game, the team will need to destroy all enemy vehicles or capture the enemy base.
  • The first rounds will be played in the “Best of 1” mode.
  • Subsequent rounds will be “Best of 3”. Under this rule, a team which wins two games wins the match.
  • The final is “Best of 5”. Under this rule, a team which wins 3 games wins the match. 
  • If a match ends in a draw, both teams will be disqualified for passive play in a best of 1 game. In best of 3 and best of 5 matches the below rule applies.
    • If a match ends in a draw, we will use the 8 tier points rule. "In the case of a draw, the total tier points of surviving tanks will be added up for each team. A team with 8 tier points advantage over their opponent will be the winner" (This must be checked with a screen shot posted on this specific forum within 15 min of the game’s end). If a there is still no clear winner, the game will be replayed, unless the referee/admin decides differently. The decision of a referee/admin is final.
  • Starting spawn points for all games will be automatically allocated by the system
  • Games cannot be replayed unless an issue with the set up causes a problem. Unfortunately we will be unable to restart games due to disconnections or PC crashes

Maps:

Casters and admins:

  • Official casters will be stated before any tournament starts on the forum by the admins Bump, 0xyde or Berbo, if an official caster requests entrance to a game then they must be invited.

Replays:

  • Replays must be recorded by the teams from the quarter final onwards. If replays are required (i.e. to resolve disputes between teams), the details on where to send the files will be provided by the admins.
  • Replays may be uploaded to the World of Tanks Replays service for easy access.

How to get to the game:

  • All games are played on the World of Tanks EU1 server.
  • Teams are automatically invited to join games; there is a great guide on how this works!
  • As there was some confusion in the past on how to move players to participate in a round, we have created a simple guide that should help you with any possible match-joining problems.
  • Additionally, every player is advised to carefully read the “How not to get declined” guide.

In the event of a team-member violating any of the above regulations, the whole team may be disqualified.
