After a glorious tournament in January King of the Sea returns on May 13th!

 

Not only do we have a new ruling King of the Sea with WGP2W for EU but we also established dominance in the Atlantic ocean by fighting the top teams from North America.

 

While we were fighting there a new power is rising, bigger and more dangerous. CIS is challenging EU once again and EU is thirsty for revenge. So as a grand finale the best teams of both servers will meet in this iteration of King of the Sea!


 

The ruleset is fundamentally the same as for King of the Sea V:

  • Tier 10, restrictions of 1CV and 2 BBs, no other limits
  • A round robin group stage, playable in one day for all non-seeded teams to qualify for the knockout stage
  • Top 16 teams of Clan Battles Season 2 will be seeded into the Round of 32 and will not play on weekend one
  • A prize pool of over 500,000 doubloons sponsored by Wargaming
  • More spaces, up to 80 teams can sign up to take their shot at the crown
  • Intercontinental, the top two teams from EU and CIS will face each other
  • The finals weekend will be a live studio cast, featuring our beloved Wargaming crew MrConway and Crysantos together with the illustrious guests Izolate, Flamu aaaaaaaaand the Mighty Jingles!

 

Teams:

  • King of the Sea is open to all teams. You must provide a lineup of at least nine players at registration
  • Sign-up is first-come first-serve after the seeded teams have confirmed. If you are a top-16 clan battles team and wish to participate please contact us before May 1st.
  • Rough structure of the tournament: here

 

Map pool (all maps played as "tournament domination"):

  • Loop
  • Sea of Fortune
  • Shatter

  • Day 2 - May 19, - Qualification Round of 32 (group first vs group second) and Round of 32 (featuring seeded teams)
  • Day 3 - May 20, - Round of 16 and Quaterfinal
  • Day 4 - May 26, - Semifinals and EU final

What is the point of asking teams from all league and players outside the clans to put forward teams and then only pick from the top 3 Leagues. So WG is getting elitist and I am sure that I am not the only clan leader that puts time into the game to constantly see elite teams made up of people that have barely played enough games to be rated.. In fact one player admitted in chat he only comes on WOWS for clan wars and tournaments and never plays randoms why o why are these people allowed to take part.. 

After this Fiasco I will not bother entering any further Comps and related games as I see that you obvious want us all to leave the game..

Hi @MungoKiller

 

I'm sorry you feel like your clan has been intentionally excluded - I assure you that's not the case.

 

We do get support and prizes from WG, but ultimately we're a community run tournament that depends on people volunteering their time in order to happen at all. We can only make the number of spots so large before it's beyond our capacity to pull off. 48 was the number this time, and we received 83 applications. You can see the list here if of interest.

 

We announced ahead of time what the selection criteria would be. Unfortunately your team did not make the cut but we have teams from Hurricane, Typhoon, Storm, and Gale leagues playing. In three tournaments that all have the same prize pool - the winner of Hurricane gets no more than the winner of Storm. I don't think that's elitist, and in fact we explicitly structured the Poseidon Cup in such a way that it would give the broadest possible spectrum of teams the opportunity to play against evenly matched opponents.

 

I hope that goes a ways to explaining why your team did not get a spot and why we had to make a cutoff somewhere. If you're looking for more, bigger tournaments with broader participation we're always in need of volunteers to help make them happen.

as a sidenote, this is the thread for the old KotS6, best to continue here
