Does this not make it a little harder for people to activly hunt them though ? Seeing as there is thousands of battles on at once ?
Before you knew that you were increasing your chance by playing "Tier ?" at a certain time in order to kill the WG tank, now it's even more random and down to pure luck

But props for making it automated !

Still haven't seen once since I started playing this game way back in 2010. That's a lot of battles.

Even less likely to see one now...

Why remove the publishing of winner's lists?

If it it is all automated then it should not be that difficult for the names to be collated automatically and possibly even published automatically for all to see.

Or are you embarassed by how few people have seen this event in game and how many less have taken part, let alone won?

73.8% from the Poll had not heard of, or seen this event. Only 18.3% had seen it once.Last results, only 41 won.

I've seen one but it was on my team, a few months ago. Two of my WoT-buddies have actually destroyed these and gotten rewards, those lucky bastards.

I like the changes for this one.

73.8% from the Poll had not heard of, or seen this event. Only 18.3% had seen it once. Last results, only 41 won.

The gold is added to your account right after the match.

You have a higher chance to see someone now than before.There is more staff members taking part, the tanks are really really easy to notice in both the team list and in-game I mean these tanks seriously stand out and players will quickly know about them. There is also no tier limits or time limits for when to see these tanks.

The poll was added specifically to show our current method wasn't working and needed changed.  In the old system, getting gold for battle hero status when the WG tank survived wasn't really fair as there was instances of the WG tank getting these medals. Because we're not supposed to be just a free kill, I would play normally and frequently come away with say, Top Gun or Defender. Sometimes that just couldn't be helped.

If you're on the same team as the WG tank now, you don't have to worry about protecting the tank and trying to get a battlehero. You just play your own game and try to damage and take out as many enemy as possible. If anything you have a great distraction to help lure enemy out and you can be sure the WG staff playing those tanks will be using that to their team's advantage. In any situation I want my team to win. I won't burden them and neither should any of the other WG tanks.

If you're against the special tank, do you risk going for the gold or do you support the team? One thing for sure is you shouldn't expect a quick and easy kill. :Smile_blinky:

My HE shell arrived about 1 second too late to punch Tuccy's ticket. But that's been the only one of your mob I've ever seen.

I'll make sure I have a single gold round for ya.

This event would be more fair if you get rewarded for damaging the tank instead of killing, because it only rewards kill stealing... would be fair if like 1 damage=50 gold or something.. And a kill still rewards the same amount of gold... This way more people would have a chance to earn gold.
