 You are free to install Equipment and Consumables and even use matching Crews that you already have in your Barracks.

 

I've just assigned my Leo 1 crew to the Leo 1 (D), and it shows the crew as being 80% only.
Is this how it's supposed to work, or is the display glitched?

Also I think in general the (D) vehicels should act as vehicles, accepting any crew of the same class and nation.

Like Domination (with T110E5, Obj140, & 50B) this event has given me a load of 100% tier 10 crews, and I bet when the event ends and those crews become free, we'll get consecutive Top of the Tree events for all of those tanks, just like the last 3 have been T110E5, Obj140 & 50B. And all these tanks, from Domination and now this (B/C, Leo, T57, IS7, Obj268) are the better / more viable CW's tanks.

 

These events are a cunning plan to make us get tier 10 tanks and play CW's :-)

 

(But you need to fix your CW's campaign reward strategy WG to get the majority interested in CW's cuz currently it's too exclusive & is actively demotivating, in fact encouraging people to get involved in CW's risks taking currently content customers and making them massively discontented. It's no good helping people with the tools to play CW's if CW's just uses them).

Tried a couple of matches, i don't like it. Please in the future stop with these kind of modes. Make real permanent ones like Team Battle or fun periodically ones like football/race. This type are boring, annoying and are not even good for farming crews or silver. Only good thing is the option to hide the (D) tanks.

Already loving the new "Steel Hunt: Lone Wolf" game mode! 

 

I've been making 30,000-40,000 credits profit per game (about 7 min average time)

Do we get to keep the event vehicle crews after it is over? If not, how about if I were to retrain them to my regular tanks?

 

Judging by info from past events, they should, but just wanted to double-check.

I guess it will be just like the 3 Domination Crews, we'll keep them, I think that's the whole point of these modes, to get us into playing some tier 10 tanks in a fun mode and give us a 100% crew for them so we're motivated to buy one for real when they're then Top of Tree immediately after. But those last crews nearly burst my barracks. When these 5 tanks go, if we keep the crew then I won't have enough barrack slots, wonder what will happen?

 

And yes - bring back TANK FOOTBALL! :izmena: I still play it in Random's but it's just not the same.

There is one thing wich is absolutely bad about this gamemode : when there is 4 guys alone VS 3 teams. Please change that, by deleting this gamemode, or giving a chance to this 4 poor guys, by ... i don't know, make a 4th team with 4 players ? Highliting those alone players (only for alone players ) to prevent  "team" killing, or to make them work together ?

 

Thanks.

That mode actually works surprisingly well. I'm barely an average player, normally stuck at T5-6, but I still managed to rack up ~70 points solo when the winning team finished. The other solo guys above me had 76 and 80. The solo guys get crazy points for damage and vehicles destroyed. If the teams split the flags, and some solos snag a few as well, I actually see this mode as tilted towards the average solo player, rather than a random rag-tag bunch team.

Its not about profit, its about crew, you got a free crew after this mode right? Why are u complaining? Maybe if there is mode where you can earn every game 100k credits you will be happy? I earn every game 5k-15k profit, its not much yep, but its fun mode, and we are here because of fun right!

If it's the same as the other events, they will use up any empty barrack slots then create temporary slots which makes it impossible to move crews around until you either dismiss the new crews or pay for extra slots.

I've just finished clearing the barracks up from the last lot of unwanted refugees :facepalm:

While yes its nice to get free crews, the domination mode gave barely any xp to train them. And what point is it giving out 5 t10 tank crews if the majority of players dont have 25-30 million to spend on buying said tanks
