Short summary of the tournament rules (full tournament rules are available on the signup page):

Special Rules
  • Only players born before the 29th November 1999 will be allowed to enter the Grand Final. This means that you have to be at least 16 years old to participate in the tournament.
  • Only United Kingdom passport-holders are allowed to participate in this qualifier! Qualifiers for other regions will be announced at a later date in specific language versions of the portal.
Team captain obligations:
  • Rules infringements must be posted within 15 minutes after the round end in a dedicated thread. After the deadline passes, reports will be deemed invalid.
  • All team captains must keep up to date on the forums.
Vehicle Limitations
  • No specific vehicles are prohibited.
  • Total tier points for a team must not be less than 20 points and no more than 42 points.
  • If any team member is missing from the team, the total tier point limit is reduced by 1 per missing player.
  • Declarations of tank choices before the game are not required.
  • The table below depicts tier limitation for this tournament

Vehicle type

Tier limit

Self-propelled guns


  • A team roster must consist of 7 players, and may include up to 1 registered reserve player. 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
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.
  • 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 there is no clear winner then both teams are disqualified. 
  • 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
How to get to the game
  • Teams are automatically invited into games, there is a great guide to this, and a guide on what to do when you have the invite!
  • 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.
  • In the event of a team-member violating any of the above regulations, the whole team will be disqualified.

Additionally, every player is advised to carefully read the “How not to get declined” guide.

If you’ve got any questions regarding the tournament, you should ask on the Multiplay forum.

Good luck and see you in China!
