To answer some questions:

 

"How do I register?"

All you need to do is post in the thread that you're interested in registering! That's it! 

 

"What is the tier limit?"

We're going to be having tier AND plane limits, to keep things fair. For the Sand Cup, we'll be flying in Tier III fighters limited to the Hawk 75M, the Ar 80, the Bristol 133, and the A5M, as these are the fastest planes in their tier.  

 

Just as an FYI, we won't be racing in any high-tier planes for this race. (Such as jets) They're not suited to the courses. 

What? No Ki-33? That is the perfect plane for this event.

Why is this being done during the War Academy time slot?  Have we just given up on teaching and Community Ace participation altogether?

 

I appreciate what you're trying to do to keep things interesting.  But in an easy-to-learn-but-hard-to-master game with a high skill threshold that continues to struggle to retain players and build a viable population is this really wise?  Two weeks of shows already have been pretty much dedicated to the races.

 

At a minimum the show should probably be re-titled if this is the intent going forward, but in all honesty that feels like a mistake. 

 

Have no worries, Rock18: we haven't stopped using War Academy for its original purpose of teaching the community. We decided to commandeer the timeslot during the races as we already had it "blocked out"; the official Wargaming twitch.tv channel has a lot of programming for our products--which now includes World of Tanks Blitz!--so we needed to find a timeslot that worked. Since we already had War Academy, we just used that.

 

But again, that in no way means that we have stopped teaching during War Academy. We're going to be calling the event the "Grand Prix" during the show as well, and not "War Academy Grand Prix," or anything like that.

The Ki-33 would be a great plane for the event, however as it's a special release Premium plane it would be unfair to include it. I want to stick to planes that players are able to acquire.

Done and done, thanks for the reminder holakc.
