So we just got the following announcement on the Shipstorm-Discord:

It's very unfortunate that there will never again be a Shipstorm tournament.

I want to take the opportunity to express my regret. I fielded a team once and had hoped to participate again.

 

I think Wargaming has made a bad decision here. The Shipstorm event always had a good mix of a tournament and still a certain lightness to it. It was unique . I strongly disagree that Clan Brawls have taken on this role. Clan Brawls are no tournaments. And Clan Brawl teams are from the same clan, whereas Shipstorm saw many teams of players across clans. It promoted a sentiment of community that went beyond the loyalty to your clan. For many players it was a bit of KotS-light, a dress rehearsal. One would participate in Shipstorm to see how the chemistry in a small team works and if there is enough teamplay to go for bigger events.

 

Many hours of volunteer work went into organizing Shipstorm. The organizers must feel like someone has utter disrespect for that effort and the free publicity it brought to WoWs.

 

So once again, I want to stress how much wiser I would have deemed it, had Wargaming made up their minds.

Another brillant move from wargaming to annoy their playerbase. They're really good at it ^^

Clan Brawl is no tournament. You just play against noobs for the first 10-15 games to get useless rewards. Shipstorm was fun, average level was way better and rewards meant something to players.


Really bad move from WG

It is a pity as Ship storm was a lot of fun, however it's not in the least surprising that WG have pulled their support.

You may have seen some examples in previous years the commentators used to have to commit suicide at the start of a battle so then they could have over views of the map. 

 

It was great fun to play and although I only participated a couple of times I hope the community keep it going even if WG has pulled their support.
