July Monthly Tournament

Hello everyone,

For the past couple weeks, we’ve seen a lot of instability in automated tournaments. Because of this, we have decided to cancel the July monthly tournament. We’re working to get these issues resolved as fast as we can. Once we do resolve the issues, we will hold an extra “monthly” tournament to catch up.

Thank you for your patience.

    Seriously? PvP doesn't work, so we're going to cancel the one thing pro players (not saying I'm included in this, as I'm like an emergency emergency emergency backup to players who win this thing) look forward to.

    Maybe you would talk differently if you would be stuck for hours in pvp map after it bugs out. Or if it would bugged out during finals, not giving away any rewards.

    Yeah, this happened to me twice. I'm not talking differently.

    You could just let it run and see what happens right? Most ATs just go fine it seems. If it bugs out you can still organise a new mAT later on when the bug is fixed.

    Will you fix the number of bots in ranked as well?

    Those are called CI Chaos Mesmers and they're a feature.

    Yeah, I'm sure an actual human is racking up >2500 matches. Couldn't possibly be a bot.

  • lol :// ok anet. are you gonna fix the normal queue bug while you're at it too? i mean how hard can it possibly be? :( is it more than just a simple coding issue or what? you've already lost a huge portion of your playerbase for stuff like this.. it's so sad watching your favorite game die over the course of 3 years when it's really simple things like this ruining it. this game used to have so much potential. big RIP

  • If only Anet listened to their players. :\

    so......this is legit happening lmao? Why not a few months ago when it was all over the place? Why do it during the Week of Monthly? Why not AFTER the monthly? What logical idea was this?

  • Xtrverz.4069Xtrverz.4069 Member ✭✭

    Will this "extra monthly" be before the August one or will that be delayed as well?

  • dagger dave.5201dagger dave.5201 Member ✭✭✭

    Everyone is complaining about lack of content.

    So... Anet removes content...?

  • @FamousKid.7681 said:
    This is a great game, i heard FF14 is having a monthly with better rewards, PvErs are already leaving for FF. We might aswell too.

    Leaving GW2 for FFXIV for...PvP? lmao good joke. I'd rather shoot myself in the head thanks.

    It's unfortunate, but we felt it was necessary. We felt it was better to postpone the tournament rather than having something go wrong in during the tournament and compromise it.

    We put up a partial fix not long ago for the queues a while ago. Incidents have dropped dramatically, but we know we still have work to do there.

    It's just going to depend on when we have a good fix. Hopefully we have one before the August monthly, but I can't 100% guarantee that right now. But once the fix in place, we'll communicate a schedule out on how we catch up.

    I appreciate Anet doing what they feel is right. I just wish you and your team had more resources to devote to something a lot of us at least used to love. I feel the mode is bleeding players and playtime, and with just a little bit of love, that wouldn't be the case.
    Cheers.

    really simple things like this

    Yeah! Programming is so easy and debugging big projects is always very straightforward /s

    Thanks for the heads up @Rubi Bayer.8493 and @Ben Phongluangtham.1065, communication is always appreciated. Hope you get it figured out soon without losing too much hair.

    Wait, so our qualifying points will still be valid for the upcoming AT (whenever that is), right? I really would rather not waste 300+ QP.

  • Hello ,
    Perhaps it would be time to set up the Swiss round system, ithat was announced for the first time in 2018. This would avoid the frustration of knockout elimination Brackets.
    In addition, I could be wise to set up quickly in pvp ranked 5v5 (full team) and ranked 2v2, with the same kind of ladder as the Solo/Duo Ranked, but with every game mode with his own ladder (Dont think it's that complicated to set up)
    I can give you screenshots of examples I designed in a few minutes.
    Good evening to you and good luck

    Yeah, we're planning to not clear QP until a monthly is run.

    PvP Content developing backwards in this game. Instead of getting anything new, we lose stuff that was working fine in the past. State of the game I guess.

    We want 2v2 and you take it away from us and we're stuck in those boring 5v5 conquest that everyone throwing games there. nice, make more single player content and new maps with new currencies to farm some collections and achievements that no one will ever repeat.
