The tournament has 2 stages:
- Group stage: 16 groups of 4 teams, 2 top teams from each group qualify for the play-offs stage.
- Play-off stages for 32 teams with full double elimination.
21 respawns are available for each team. Every player can respawn up to 4 times. The following restrictions on vehicle types apply to all teams:
- 10 spawns in a medium/light tank
- 4 spawns in a heavy tank
- 7 spawns in a tank destroyer
- 4 spawns in a SPAAs
- 4 spawns in a fighter

Players can view the list and the number (reserve) of team vehicles on the battle map. This is shown in the upper right corner of the map. After a successful landing on the airfield, a player can change aircraft without the change being counted in the total number of team respawns.
