2 questions:
if a player wants to take a lessor prize than the player wins, can they opt to a lower tiered prize?
IE: a team gets first place, but one of the players has a strong desire for the 3rd place reward
 (that Th'Ak'Len 17 being the most valuable prize on this list since the devs LIED about making it publicly accessible 2 years ago, and some people are running out of patience)

I ask because of rule 20

It is not possible to opt for a lesser reward, contracted games will end in bans from the event.
However, if this competition proves to be of greater interest to player, there will be more events like this, with that, more chances of winning that prize and much more.

 

One more thing, if there happens to be a lot of teams with full replacements, i would like to advise you to consider making teams with other replacements.
Rank 3, 4, 5 and 6 ships are allowed since it's a commonly asked question.

Now, this event is an encouragement, in all honesty this is nice ! Not sure whether the rank range is right though, certain ships/gear may be excluded but ranks 3-6 are far too low. Just wondering whether the rank could be open and in case low ranks participate can always get the buffs [low ranks] used to get.

The ranks are set so anyone can participate if they chose to.

Actually no, the mode more or less requires clearance level 15 to get the 4th ship slot. So going r9 would be as accessible for everyone

Math, if you wanna join my team, I'll take ya ^_^ my plan is to be strong enough to get third place, but short on numbers so I can at least make it look legit when I fail to take first or second :)

Actually, players can have up to 4 ships in their lineup. Access to 4 ship slots is not required to participate in a team.

Yes not required, but not having 4 is a significant handy cap in Capture the Beacons, since you can use every ship only once.

Actually since low ranks could get buffs, and that was quite common not long ago, imo a successful event would have had open ranks. Tournaments favor ranks 7-9 as they are available for 2 full days while max ranks just on Sundays. Despite of the fact that this is very nice idea, I have no intention to play those low ranks. The rewards are max rank which means the winners [if they are actually low ranks] will have to store the gear - assuming they will continue to play to rank up, or will be high ranking players and use immediately the rewards. I doubt that a lot of low rank players will play this event and in the case that some will then the high rank/experienced players will dominate. So why not leave open ranks ?

The idea was to attract both new and old players to participate, the ranks were chosen in a way that it wouldn't allow too many meta ideas that would be too hard to beat. Basically an even chance for everyone to get the podium as long as they mastered the basics of the game. The weapon prizes are more of the collectibles side of things rather than endgame, the focus was more in resources that can boost a players progress regardless where they are in ranks and the first prize is suited for the rank range proposed here since r10 is just outside of the tournament which also provides a nice incentive for people to hunt for more ships and better equipment in their play. Hopefully this explains the confusion if there is any left.

I favor th'ak'len 12 on my wazie, haven't brought wazie up past 12, because I decided to wait for the th'ak'len 15 (now 17), which I was promised nigh on 2 years ago (on December 13th, 2017, by CinnamonFake, who promised it would be available soon to Myself, Koromac, WolfKhan and others) and I still don't have it...
I think the most discouraging thing to new players is the lack of integrity on part of the Devs, the LIES they tell us, and the fact that the only thing you can trust, without fail, is that when a Dev makes a promise or assurance, it is guaranteed never to actually happen.

but that's just my personal experience, as well as the experience of the rest of those who asked about, were promised, and denied, this weapon that is integral to aggressive waz'got play, rather than this passive BS wazgot play we always see... most people don't even realize how good a ship it is when it's fighting up close and personal, because they don't really use was'gots first special that much... IF one of wazgots other weapons also served as a tractor beam to feed it, I probably wouldn't be giving this issue so much focus, but alas, I do really hate liars.

In the last tournament, Mzhelskii asked us to participate, promising us in return, the stiker in game of our corp logo!
He specified that he would give it to us only for the presence! We had participated only for this!
But they never gave us the sticker! and Mzhelskii no longer responds to my messages
now .. why should we participate?

We need to look into the fact that this is the English forum and i'm not Mzhelski. The rewards proposed will be the ones you will get depending on your performance in the tournament.
