I played around 5 times this mode and I was already bored from the second match. I read this articles and I still can't figure it out how can players benefit from this game mode: low income, XP is meh, crazy ppl running around like blind donkeys chasing ghosts, etc.

Unplayable mode with literally no point to it.

It's entirely possible to lose money (1-3k) on a win.

And to win you have to pray that your teammates have two brain cells to rub together, since tripling the amount of flags to capture apparently makes them three times as dumb.

Can't we get a little more credits and xp for it?Right now it's a waste of time.But ofc. WG wants us to lose credits and buy more premium tanks and account.

Glad to see all the money WG squeezes out of our pockets goes to the development of incredibly boring and pointless things, like this mod. Instead of fixing the basic things which have been broken for years.

No more base capping PLEASE. And also do not give tier X vehicles to new players. Maybe just maybe this way this mode would matter.

Saying new game mode is avaiable to test...

 

Yet the Test server is Unavaiable.

 

:facepalm::facepalm:

 

WG, When you say you Launch the Test server to test something then Launch it, Dont just say "A new gamemode is Avaiable to test" yet you Dont activate the test server.

Dear WG

 

Domination = good idea, poor implementation.

(a) mode is excellent for newish players as it gives them experience of tier X before actually grinding up to one. Or for a player without a particular tier X they might want to try the top tank before grinding the line,

(b) at the end of the event players will be gifted 100% crews with maybe a bit of perk on (which of course they will then need to re-train for either credits or gold = good for WG profit).

 

BUT few if any long term players will play this mode because;

 

(c ) the crew experience per vehicle used is far too low,

(d) the silver rewards for doing well are set far too low.

I've played this mode a few times and never done less than 8,000 damage and sometimes as much as 12,500 damage. In silver terms that has been profit of 16,000 - 33,000 silver (this is with a premium account). The crew exp is about 450-550 in those battles. Thats per crew member per battle generally spread across two tanks bat chat (only three crew) and T57.

Taking those figures into account I will get more experience on a crew, and more silver in my account if instead of playing domination I play a tier VIII premium, plus I have more choice of which crew I put in a tier VIII premium I own, hell I'd probably even do better in a tier VII premium than running Domination.

So lets take a comparison and just say I put my T57 crew into a T34 premium and had an average game and got 1,000 experience. With the Acclerated Crew Training turned on my crew would have got 1,100 experience each, and the one on the lowest experience would have got an additional 1,500 for a total 2,600. In a 1,000 experience battle that tank will make approximately 65-75,000 silver as a guestimate.

 

So roughly speaking to persuade more players to play Domination mode my guess would be that (1) the crew experience needs to be multiplied so that even if two tanks are used the experience is not halved between them (which looks like to me what is happening at present), (2) WG also need to compensate for the 1.5 crew additional experience of ACT in an elited or Premium tank that could be played in a random, and (3) Up the silver profit on winning to closer to a premium tier VIII tank.

 

Obviously I am just a player and cannot see the take up numbers, and I am only guessing more "beginner/early" players will play this mode presently compared to more "mature/long-term paying" customers. But lets see what the rest of the posts on this thread come out with.

So , what i will win if i separate time and join in this event ? Here are the answers:

 

1.Gold x10 , x100 , x1000 ???

2.Credits x10, x100 , x10000000 ???

3.Premium time (day/s) 1 , 10 , 100 ???

4. All from Up ???

5. Nothing , just waste of time ???

 

I think the right answer is number 5 !! So u can keep this event  for u WG!

Only thing for this mode is good, and i do it, is to sell all ammos and get the crews!

Maxim, it's in the normal game, not the test server.

Well, I plan to play few games, get a ribbon and that's it.

 

Domination as it is won't be popular as long as you're not earning good XP and credits and you're not training your own crews.

 

Perhaps some Free XP as a reward would be more encouraging?

It needs bribery to get us interested, even the instructions are too complicated to read without any obvious rewards like good crew XP or silver. Both tank football and Chaffee racing had good credit and / or crew XP inducements, and both of those games were easy to grasp & potentially ace (depending on personal taste). Steel Domination Supply Hunt Swarm appears to have no good credit or crew XP inducements at all and doesn't look like it would be fun even if I knew what it was about. I've come to conclusion it is in fact a game equivalent of garage chat.

 

No

Thank

You

 

But I'm pleased if it acts in anyway as a swab for the real game :-)
