Wait what? I was under the impression players would get to drive the Mark I themselves... WAS kinda looking forward to it. Oh, well... :izmena:
WG: "To celebrate 100 years of tanks, we give you machine gun strapped racing cars!" ... :facepalm:

So we are driving around in fast cars, picking up stuff and shooting each others... Mario Kart?

 

Sorry, but for real. I play this game, because i like driving tanks. Which are slow. If i want to drive fast stuff i play other games.

So far you have been playing Random Battles and now they add a separate game mode, but you can continue to play Randoms and ignore this new game mode, but you just quit WoT?

 Also, these missions are a prelude to something really juicy coming in September.

 

Is this it? Looks more like a mush to me.

Where did i mention, that i will quit playing the game? I love playing random battles and will continue to do so.

 

I have tried every "minigame" WG has released in WoT until this point. 8-Bit mode, Football, Racing, luggage throwing etc. and i am sure i will try out the mario kart stuff coming up. I just think, that time and effort for those mods could be used otherwise.

 

Not one of their previous mods has convinced me to play more than 4-5 times. And to be honest. player numbers in those are far from high.

 

It will be another way to sell premium consumables you will need to be competetive. And of course you can earn a nice badge/medal if you win 100 times or defend the mark1 50 times... or something like that. And these badges/medals will be enough for a certain playerbase which will pay for the development cost...

The timing - Marathon on EU together with this Convoy event - is really bad.

However, I have to see if I'm going to play the Convoy event at all. It depends highly on what's in it. And sorry no, "fun" is not enough.
If I want to play something casual and fun I probably will look outside WOT. What I want, or rather wish for, in a WOT event is the possibility to earn something I can take with me after the event like the 8 bit game where we got good crews and plenty of training for them during the event and could use the crews after the event. Both the Moon event and the Football event failed big time here.

 :child:

 

So I hope that the event brings something and is worth the time and effort from players as well as for the WG development team.

:harp:

So you put this on at the same time as the marathon, wft.

 

Or is it just very clever of you, get people distracted by this mode so the don't spend enough time on the marathon and have to buy tokens, that's it isn't it?

I can understand that from a gameplay perspective travelling in a mark 1 tank would not deliver much in the way of fun due to them crawling over the landscape at a snails pace if you made it a 15 v 15 or even 7 v 7 battle. Also, I understand that the tank itself really wasn't designed for fighting other tanks.

 

Sad though that the trailer makes reference to the tanks you can't use in the upcoming event and doesn't seem to tell you a lot about what exactly the event is unless you read the description below it.

 

Surely they could have thought up something in which you could actually use the tanks, even if it was to slowly go over trenches and take out gun emplacements while moving the tank to spots where it could cross in a downsized map so it didn't seem so slow paced. Maybe have other players attacking it  and only damage they can do is to its tracks if they hit it enough to stop it from making it to the other side by a set time limit.

 

Alas, it is too late and so we are given to play as someone else has said, "Mario kart."

maybe they mean this http://worldoftanks....k-rewards-sept/

 

It's from the NA server. Of course the Paris office is too busy with something else to implement an event calendar announcing events with a months' notice ...

Luckily there are a few, or a few hundred tanks in the game with which you can do that.

Touché. :)

 

What i meant was, that WoT is more slow paced instead of LoL, CSGo or other online teamgames. And i like that.
