The World of Warplanes tournaments organized by Wargaming.net are a great occasion to join the competitive scene. You can find tournaments for teams of various sizes, different tiers and a broad range of available planes.
There is however a “core” set of rules for all of the tournaments. There will be some cases when these rules will not apply, but it will happen only if the special rules specific for a tournament are in place. You can find the General Rules below.
List of prizes:
|Team Place || Prize*
||8,000 per player
||6,000 per player
||4,500 per player
||2,500 per player
|5th Place (4 teams)
||1,500 per player
*Both the starting line-up and reserve players are awarded the prize.
Team captain obligations:
- Rules infringements must be posted in a dedicated thread within 15 minutes of the game/battle end. After the deadline passes, reports will be deemed invalid.
- All team captains must keep up to date on the forums.
- As a general rule, no specific planes are prohibited. The exact limitations of tiers and plane choices are tournament-specific.
- Use of premium planes, ammunition and consumables is allowed.
- The team roster size limitation will be announced in the news post for the tournament or on the specific tournament page in case of recurring tournaments.
- Each player can only play for one team in one tournament, cup or championship.
- Any player can change team if they want. Players are not allowed to play for a new team within 10 days of their departure from their old team, and may not take part in any games or tournaments for his new team during this period. This also applies to newly registered players playing for an existing established team but not for entirely new teams.
- A banned player whose ban has recently expired cannot play in any new teams or participate in an existing team for 30 days after the expiration of their ban.
- Wargaming.net staff or affiliates are not prohibited from playing unless they are part of the tournament administration (these people will be stated). A maximum of 2 Wargaming.net employees and/or affiliates per active team are allowed.
- Once the team has been created, it cannot change its name (please be very careful when naming your team).
- Team and player names must not violate the Wargaming.net naming rules; any team violating these rules will be disqualified.
- Each battle lasts for 10 minutes.
- To win a game, the team will need to destroy all enemy planes or win on superiority. The winner is determined by the system.
- The default tournament format is “Double Elimination”: After the first round, the tournament tree is separated into two brackets - one for winners and one for losers. All the winning teams play in single elimination against each other, as do the losers. A loss in the winners’ bracket means the team drops into the losers’ bracket. A loss in the losers’ bracket means elimination from the tournament. This format gives teams a chance for a comeback after losing a match.
- The final is played with the “Best of 5” rule. Under this rule, a team that wins 3 games wins the match.
- If a match ends in a draw, the teams will play a bonus game (rematch). Planes can be re-picked, map sides will be switched, team captains may swap players for reserves, etc.
- Starting spawn points for all games will be automatically allocated by the system.
- Maps will be announced in the tournament signup announcement.
Administrators (admins) and Casters:
- The official Wargaming.net admins are: Bump, 0xyde, Berbo, Alpacalypse and Kejjak.
- Administrators resolve disputes.
- The ruling of an Administrator is final.
- Official Casters will be named in an official tournament forum thread before a tournament starts.
- If any official Caster requests entrance to a game, he must be invited.
