Invitation: Saturday Shootout

February 1st 2020 from 20:00 CET to midnight (4 hours)

 

Players participate in the “Saturday Shootout” tournament by playing regular battles alone (no flights of 2 allowed) on tier 4-10 thereby making progress on tiers, nations and plane classes. 

Progress updates and calculations relies 100% on data obtained from the Wargaming API.

 

The total progress for each player is converted to points using the players winrate as a factor.

In addition to progress, it’s also possible to compete for bonus points.

 

Each players points plus any bonus points equals the total points,which determines positions in the overall standing.

 

The updates of progress, conversion to points, distribution of bonuses and calculation of overall standings are done hourly (at “o’clock”) for the entire duration of the tournament.

 

Various limitations are in effect.

It is highly recommended that the participants knows about these limitations before start of the tournament, in order to avoid any “surprises” - see link to rules further down for more details.

 

After the last update the player with the highestnumber ofpoints is the winner of Saturday Shootout.

 

The winner will receive a special skin made by zen_monk_. See details futher down this thread.

Thanks, zen, for taking the time+effort to do this!

 

Saturday Shootout is for all - there are 30 seats available.

 

The only requirements are that participants must fly alone (no flights of 2 allowed), have played minimum 1000 battlesand have access to minimum 2 tier 4 planes of different nations and classes. Apart from that there are no restrictionsin relation to winrate, clan membership or similar. 

 

Sign up by responding to this post with “I’m in”, “Sign me up”, “Let’s get ready to ruuuuuuuuummbleee” or some other brief comment confirming your participation, and I’ll add your name to the list.

Registration closes at February 1st 17:00 CET (3 hours before we begin).

 

All rules can be found here:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bXqa_KuQ4cWI7pDdFPQShi9uCnZKzu-loZ8FiCieIWc/edit

If there’s anything unclear after reading the rules (English is not my mother tongue) just ask and I will try to explain.

 

By participating in “Saturday Shootout” you also give consent to having your in-game name as well as some of your plane-related data shown on a site created specifically for the tournament.

After the tournament is over all data related to the event will be deleted from the site.

 

Good luck to all that sign up!

The tournament for which there is no specific prize is OK. Congratulations on the idea. Play for fun, NOT prizes. It's cool.

Answer my questions in the second topic.

However, zend_monk_ mentioned something about creating a skin to the winner in a different post in relation to this.

It is ofc. completely zend’s own decision if that is still on the table or not, I respect both outcomes.

 

Who is this zend? So my offer was not good enough? :teethhappy:

1) Hi, thank you for organising this.

2) Sign me up pls.

3) Maybe I just overlooked it, but is it so that there should be no flights of two for participants? We know that flight of two good players increases the chance of victory tremendously. Therefore I believe that the rule should be that participants must fly solo.

Yes there will be a reward for the winner (if one can consider it a reward of any kind :teethhappy:)

 

I will make a special personal commemorative skin for the victor, for the plane of his/hers choice (provided I have the said plane) along the lines of:

So maxram68 feel free to include this in OP.

No way, man.It must be a little bit with POLISH color.

White and red chessboard on P-38 WILK, or Polish eagle ;-)

 

It is best if you cover these German signs on the plane - without offending people from Germany, of course, but as if you could.

 

 

 

 

Or my new logo, which will be soon:

 

 

He was not a POLISH pilot, but he fought in the D-303 Squadron in the Battle of Britain, he died - a great pilot.

 

I am like HE. INDIVIDUALIST.........

I apologize for talking about Frantiśzek Jozef but I am very impressed with what he did and surely if he flew bombers he would do the same as me in the game :trollface:Czechs should be proud of such a PILOT.

Thank you for participating. Nice to see you're still around mate.

 

You didn't overlook anything in relation to 2-man flight (it was I who forgot to address it - thanks for the reminder).

It is certainly a valid point.

 

It is now included in the rules: no flights of 2 allowed.

i would like to participate, but i´m not sure if my  time allows me to make 20 battles on Saturday...
There is an art to flying, or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. ... Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, that presents the difficulties (Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

Er, sorry, I don't remember asking to participate.  Good luck with it, but please don't include me.  As it happens I don't play on Saturday evenings anyway.

I'll keep your name on the list.

If you only have time to f.ex. do around 10 battles, just make sure you win all of them in order to get a top spot. :izmena:

So - correct me because I don't understand some things:

The tournament starts at 20:00 CER, February 1, 2020, and lasts four hours.

- you can't fly in a platoon,

- levels from 4 to 10.

- means I have to fly at least two aircraft of different types and nationalities - YES? Can't one type two other nationalists? Yes?

- a change of aircraft during the game - airports with the possibility of change - is understandable allowed.
 

I don't know what's going on here - can you explain it to me?

"

Various limitations are in effect: +/-3 for individual tiers/nations/classes, max. 15 in progress between updates and a maximum of 20 attempts (battles) for the duration of the tournament.
More details below.

Maximum of +3/-3 progress for individual tiers,nations and classes within a single update.

"

Exactly!

Yes!

It is allowed, yes.
 

 

 

In relation to: 

"Various limitations are in effect: +/-3 for individual tiers/nations/classes, max. 15 in progress between updates and a maximum of 20 attempts (battles) for the duration of the tournament.

More details below.

Maximum of +3/-3 progress for individual tiers,nations and classes within a single update."

 

I will try to explain that a bit more - I'm sorry if it looks complicated in the rules. 
It really isn't once you get to see how it works during a live tournament.


Tournament runs from 2000-0000 with updates of progress, points and bonuses every hour: 2100, 2200, 2300 and 0000.

In each "timeslot" (that is: from 2000-2100, from 2100-2200, from 2200-2300 and from 2300-0000), there a limitation of +/-3 progress for individual tiers, nations and classes, as well as a limit of 15 in progress across all tiers,nations and classes in each "timeslot".

 

That means that if your progress is HIGHER than +3 (or lower than -3) for any individual tier 4-10, any individual nation (Japan, USA, Germany etc.) or any individual class (light fighter,heavy fighter,multirole etc.) in one of the "timeslots" mentioned, then the progress will be ADJUSTED to be within the +/-3 limit.
For an example see page 3 in the rules.

 

A similar limitation exists for the sum of progress for all tiers, nations and classes within a "timeslot". It cannot be higher than 15.
That means that the sum of progress for all tiers 4-10, all nations (Japan, USA, Germany etc.) and all classes (light fighter, heavy fighter, multirole etc.) cannot be higher than 15 within a "timeslot", or it will be adjusted to 15.
For an example see page 4 in the rules.

 

The 20 attempts is a limitation to make sure that everyone gets the same number of attempts to make progress throughout the tournament.
Nobody MUST use all 20 attempts - it's just an upper limit.

 

If you never switch plane during battle, then the 20 attempts is equal to 20 battles.

However, on some maps and in some situations, it might be a good idea to switch to a different plane.

 

So: If you switch plane during battle that will count as TWO attempts - even though you might think of it as being just one battle.
Also note that if you switch, you're also playing for the DOUBLE amount of progress...(in other words: do not switch, if you're behind f.ex. 80:750 and enemy has all caps...).

 

Again: I'm sorry if it looks complicated in the rules. 
It really isn't very complicated once you see it in a live tournament.
