It's easy to see why. WG assumed players would be equally split between two teams, however they didn't count on herd mentality - everybody wants to play for the winning side. So atm Sharks heavily outnumber the Eagles, and there is no mechanism to even this out. 

Points bonus WG gives to team that falls behind is  flawed in this respect. For example, even if Eagles get close in points, bonus for points difference disappears and number of players per team comes into effect, widening the gap again. 
If something isn't done about this the competition is over.

I saw this landslide coming a mile away as soon as i saw the team selection screen....

 

1. Blue is the most popurily picked color when you give people a choice.

 

2. if they are uninformed, people most often pick the first thing they see, and sharks were on the left side when choosing team.

 

Of course way more people are gonna pick sharks, its basic psychological, i dont know what wargaming were think making sharks both be blue and be the option to the left at the same time, id have made sure that the blue option was the one to the right, to try and balance the psychological bias as much as possible.

"To those who have everything, more will be given. From those who have nothing, everything will be taken." Looks like it really works....

A lot of Streamers and CC's announced that they will be picking sharks way before the event starts.

A group of highly skilled players from clans picked sharks as a directive from their clans since every win in a CB match means 700 points for the team..

 

No amount of compensation will make the gap getting closed..

wait for the 15th day, when a lot of players complete the 75 loyalty points then it will be a stream of players towards to the eagles... to get more tokens.

You are wording this as if this was the 1st time WG did such an event, hint: its not.

They keep hitting their toes in the same stones over and over in every instance they can, it truly is a "special" company WG...

But what if it is justice? What if this is exactly what the feathery sky-poopers deserve? Anyway, my bet is that come day 16 the Eagles will start winning a lot more.

You missed the part "Even if they hath not." or something like that...

 

I am an Eagle, I have stayed an Eagle.

 

To be fair every game I have played, bar one, has been a victory...

I usually hum "It's the final countdown." and if I can I type thank you for coming and goodbye just before my torpedoes hit.

WG was for some reason under the impression that in a community that plays a game about ships, on the ocean, half of the players would choose the team symbolized by a big pigeon.

 

Instead of something that lives in close proximity to the ships we play, and is arguably the coolest animal on the planet Earth.

This outcome was already clear to me when ppl went "but sharks has dasha!" in the forums, plus as already mentioned the streamers going "I'll play sharks" and clans simply ordering members to pick what side.

 

Could one say this  was rigged? No idea, next time WG should just put players randomly into teams... without option to switch. And then just watch how it goes....but meh, like WG gives a crap what forum says.

I went for the Sharks because the eagle, through no fault of his own, comes across as being a bit too full of himself. Eagles have been among the top 10 heraldic animals since ancient times, and still figure heavily on national flags and coats of arms across the globe. The much maligned and heavily set-upon shark? Not so much. In spite of being here first - sharks predate eagles by several hundred millions of years - he's been shoehorned into the villain's role for far too long. But now the time has come to put things right! Join the Sharks, and strike a blow for justice, freedom and bikini-clad happy meals! :fish_haloween:

Dasha is an eagle. People basically chose the less ... eccentric Wooster camo. In 15 days their loyalty will be full and they'll start switching over.
