    Hmm you got a point there, it says Daily knockout, but the tournament always goes on for 2 days.

    They changed this after a few weeks, in the beginning it was 5 tournaments (monday-friday) with a few tries on each tournament (and most of them with different requirements). Then they added Friday to the WL and had 4 tournaments with 4 tries on each. They then realized that 4 tournaments with all different requirements was quite hectic and unnecessary, so they changed it again to two tournaments with 8 tries on each..

    The name however is no longer correct in that way, but it's been like this for the last few months now.. (You still get the same amount of tries though, that did not change as far as I know).

    If you only played 8 games means... You lost in the first round, 8 times in a row?

    That aside, it's been a 2-day tournament for a long time. The name is a bit misleading, sure, but you should have also noticed that it said 1 day, X hours while you were playing yesterday.

    It’s not 8 games a day, it’s 8 attempts

    i know its 8 attempts ... but that should be 8 attempts daily should it not !!!! otherwise no point in calling it a daily tournament - might as well be called a weekly tournament - i think EA cocked up somewhere and it is meant to be 8 attempts a day

    They've clocked up many places, but I don't think this is one of them, seems to be the name has just carried over through the changes.

    No. JorisDB summed it up perfectly. That the name stuck might be a bit misleading but other than that EA did not „c*ck up“ for once

    You should actually be happy, since I assume you did not qualify as you used up all your 8 attemps

    Imagine if you had 4 attempts each day, it would be even more harder to qualify since all the 'good' players can go win it again each day

    im gold 3 weekly - thought we had an extension so left 20 games pass until monday to find out there is no extension Doh - so yes trued to qualify yesterday but coming across full icon teams - fin idiot teams just because they want a free player

    Its not for the free player, I play DKT most weekdays even though I don't need to qualify

    if there was any other option to play on dedicated servers during the week I would gladly do that instead. But seasons feels like a totally different game, and I want to keep my chops up for WL

    Well then you have only yourself to blame then. You seem to be the king of not reading things. First the deadline for the WL, then the deadline for DKT. What's next...?

    no i dont have myself to blame - maybe if the ppl who have already qualified BOG off and play another mode then it would make life a lot easier and 2 if EA make it a daily tournament instead of a 48hr one - that would also help

    Am I one of the few people that had his 8 attempts yesterday, failed in all 8 of them, but know that I can't try again until next week?

    It certainly looks that way. Daily or not, i have 8 goes, i fail in 8 goes, so its back to practicing until next week

    I swear EA do 2 DKT. Monday-Tuesday usually a reward/ requirement
    Wednesday-Thurday- Free for all with no rewards

    think if the Fuxxx **** made it 4 Attempts a day then everyone is happy .. at least we know where we stand in all this .. 8 attempts a day - not really hardship though is it

    What makes you think you can win it today anyway if you couldn’t in 8 attempts yesterday

    I won it 3 and I have a full icon team...it’s a free player you can then use the SBC to upgrade, which I did and got Thiago.

    Don’t blame the players, blame EA for not running two separate tournaments.

    "bog off" :D :D haven't heard that before

    gonna keep playing DKT, sorry dawg. the other mode's are too different

    and as said above, if EA made it a daily tournament I'd be competing against you again tonight. As it is I've already won yesterday so maybe you'll have more luck tonight with much of the autoqualify crowd having won

    I get the point on the 2-day vs. daily knockout tournament name.... but seriously... of all the things that EA need to fix, this one is pretty far down on the list.

    Call it the Pink Polka-dotted Rhinoceros tournament for all I care, just don't have it lag when I play it.
