The King of the Sea tournament goes on, beginning July 29th!

 

The king is dead, long live the king! The World of Warships seas have a new ruler; Odem Mortis.

We never saw closer semifinals and final and the celebrations went on for weeks. But the title is also a burden; many teams fallen to the king rise again, and revenge is a dish better served cold, even during a hot summer. Will OM keep their crown? Will OMNI take it back? Will we see a new king? The next Tournament will tell!

 

 


We will use the time to make bigger changes that we hope will move us towards better KotS tournaments. Ruleset is being finalized  but here are the basics we can anounce now:

 

max of 32 teams Running into a top team and going out in the first round is no fun. Up to the round of 16 the tournament will be played as double elimination Win out and you play the same number of games as you would in a knock-out tournament. Lose once and you get another chance, against a team that's also lost a game. Lose twice and you go home

The top eight teams from the last KotS are seeded

If you are not a quarterfinalist from KotS III it is still first come first serve, so be ready when sign-ups open and have your team line-up prepared!

 

Big changes on the basics for the first time: 

After looking back at previous seasons of KotS, and other competitions, we have noticed that there is an inherently stale, “campy” meta, which is also reflected in #feedback. To combat this we have changed the lineups to (tier 8 will stay):
            - 2 BBs
            - 1 Kutuzov

            - 2 USN DD

 

Teams: King of the Sea is open to all teams. Sign-up is first-come first-serve for the 24 open slots. You must provide a team lineup of at least nine players at registration. There will be 14 prizes per team.

 

Map pool:  Loop, Warriors Path, Sea of Fortune, Trap, Trident, Atlantic, and Neighbours

 

 

Schedule: 

 Day 1 - July 29 - Group Stage

 Day 2 - July 30 - Group Stage II, Quarterfinals and Semifinals

 Day 4 - August 6 - Final and 3rd place match

3rd place starting at 16:00, final after that

 

 

Rewards:   Will be provided by Wargaming!

Are there any restrictions on aircraft carriers? Or are they forbidden?

I like the reduction in Battleships and limits on the Kutuzov and the keeping of the USN DD limit. 
Perhaps a suggestion in the future when there are more ships and lines is to have only 1 of each ship per team. (although that would mean just an Alabama & North Carolina in BB terms) 
But in 8 vs 8 the team line up is going to be interesting (excluding CV's would anyone be brave enough to take the Enterprise? but there will be 1 per team) limiting the number of BB's puts a question mark on what else to take, more Radar cruisers? more DD's? The Edinburgh?

hopefully this will encourage a change in tactics and have to offer a choice of the core groups or a flanking group.

Drawings of the groups and maps will happen tomorrow on Izos stream:

https://www.twitch.tv/izolate

 

We are going to change to 4 groups of 6-8 teams per group because of the fewer signups we have. We want to give teams the best experience as possible and to fight as many fair games as possible. There will be 2 seeded teams per group and the best 2 of each group will advance into the quaterfinal.

 

 

Teams are allowed to sign up until thursday but after the drawing they will not be seeded and randomly distributed into the groups.

 

We will post a new schedule soon, we will likely start on saturday at 14:00 CEST playing 2-3 rounds per team and on sunday 15:00 CEST 3-4 rounds per team.

Saturday: Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, Loserround 1 Loserround 2

Sunday: Loserround 3, Loserround 4, QF, SF

Upon further deep inspection, I've concluded, that your schedules need more shades of green.

Currently Eclaire is writing a book, working title: 100shades of green.
I think it has the potential for a movie too!

I never anticipated, I'd become famous in China, but well done cat-guy! Also, not to put any pressure on y'all, but it's Tuesday already & no schedule has been posted (if it's somewhere on Discord / Facebook, sorry, my bad).

 

Cheers,
