⦁ #1 What if the number of teams registering is not divisible by 4, for the preliminary stage of the tournament? We will use some groups of 3 or 5 and re-balance how many teams progress from each group. Seeding is based on team registration times; the first registered team will be slightly more favoured, but minimally.
⦁ #3 What if there aren’t very many teams who register? Will there still be a ‘preliminary stage’ to the tournament? Yes. The preliminary stage will still be used to determine the seeding into the tournament with more teams per group progressing. A key principle of the tournament is to play, have fun, and encourage more players to take part. In all circumstances, every team registering will have the opportunity to play more than just 1 or 2 battles.
⦁ #4 What if some of my team cannot make it and I don’t have 7 players? You can play shorthanded, but will still have the same limits on ship type selection. IE: Only 1 destroyer.
⦁ #5 If I know one or more of my team have a good reason for being unable to be at the game, can I nominate someone else to fill the space? No. There is a ‘reserve player’ system in place and why captains can name up to 10 players when registering. If the reason is more serious, please contact one of the moderators as soon as possible.
⦁ #6 What if there is a technical problem, causing significant interruption to the game? One player experiencing lag or connection issues is unfortunate, but the game will continue. If the server itself, for example, is the problem, then the game will be aborted and rescheduled. Any decision will be at the sole discretion of Tournament Staff.
⦁ #7 I have a Tier 5 destroyer that I would rather use, can I? No. All ships must be tier 6.
⦁ #8 A member of my team accidentally had a Tier 7 ship selected when battle started, what happens? If anyone takes an incorrect ship into a game (such as 2x Destroyers, or a different Tier ship), the game will be aborted and restarted. Strikes may be given to the person and/or the team as a whole if it happens again. Accidents can happen, but please try to avoid them.
⦁ #9 Can my team consist of players from different clans? No. Each clan is only allowed to register one team. We consider [WALLY] and [W4LLY] to be different clans. For example:
One full team of [WALLY] and one full team of [W4LLY] – Yes.
One team with both [WALLY] and [W4LLY] members – No.
Two full teams of [WALLY] – No.
Half the team with [WALLY] and half the team with [OTHER] – No.
⦁ #10 I am not a member of a clan, can I still take part in the tournament? All teams need to be associated with a clan. If your team does not have a clan, you can always start one yourself, or there are plenty of clans looking for more members.
⦁ #11 Have a question about discord – good to explain that although discord is mandatory, you don’t need to pay anything or install any software on your computer, if you don’t want to. This is important to help remove reasons why someone might not want to take part. And also something about there’s a general chat channel in Discord to talk to everyone and anyone before and after battles – meet some new friends
⦁ #12 My clan normally uses Teamspeak, do we have to use Discord to talk? No. You can use other systems for your in-game communication (Teamspeak, Ventrilo, etc); however, every team member must still be connected to their Discord channel as described in the tournament details.
Please keep in mind that The Seven Seas Tournament is still a Beta, And we are testing the water to see what response we receive by the community.
Our main aim is to help people connect with new players from around the world, Making the World of Warships community Stronger.
We also designed this event for new and experienced players to engage in a sporting manner.
If you do not have a team of 7 to 10 players and want to join a team, Then feel free to join the WALLY clan <Discord.> And also join the Seven Seas <forum>
and make it known you are searching for a team.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post, Hope to see you all out on the high seas.
Good luck fellow captains
