"fun mode" my *ss.

 

Not sure what they do in Belarus for fun, but if WoT's fun modes are any indication Im guessing the latest craze is getting rocks thrown at your head.

Not only is the mode completly broken in design (see other posts) every game there's atleast 2-3 AFK's and not to mention the balance, Im almost 10 games deep and is yet to see the defending team win.

 

1/10 (would be a 0 but the map is pretty atleast)

So many filthy casuals complaining about no mods. Oh no, you actually have to get good at the game again, until they update the mods.

Well, I wanted to try it out before commenting...

 

I think the game mode itself it really fun, and a great way to celebrate 100 years anniversary of tanks. But there's 2 major things that I don't like:

 

1. The rewards. And this one you keep messing up time after time regardless of how many people that tell you to increase the rewards. Yes, there're some people that are willing to play this event mode for hours just for fun without any rewards, but most players just try it out because the rewards are not worth the time. Right now we get 15k credits if we win, 0 if we lose. Regarding the crew, it's limited to british crew and its limited to LTs... now lets see how many mid-top tier LTs britain has... oh wait right...

 

Solution: Increase the rewards. 50k credits + 5k xp for a win and nothing for a loss. And please make the event vehicles multi-national and multi-class. So it should be possible to put a crew from any nation from any class in that vehicle, and still receive 100% of the crew xp.

 

2. The game mode is massively unbalanced. It's so much easier to attack than to defend and almost every time the attacking team wins. Delivering the bomb itself is not the problem, it's that we have to do it too many times in a too short timeframe.

 

EDIT: For clarification, I mean that it's much easier to attack the base than defending the base.

 

Solution: Either reduce the speed of the Mark 1, or make the bombs do 500 damage.

Considering how the defending team tries to defend they should have made the map look like Iraq or Syria.

 

Thank you, this made my day :D :D :D

Any mode that can guarantee driving around without being one shot by some clicker has a lot going for it, even if the tanks were balloon shapes firing marshmallows.

 

Jus' sayin'

 

 

Too bad this game mode features "large caliber" powerup that enables you to do just that. Click and one shot enemies for full hp quite reliably. Oh the irony... :trollface:

...which you can then retrain into a medium crew.

 

Besides, Covenanter and Crusader have called and they demand an apology.

It was fun only 3-4 games, not even getting money from it, and rewards are not worth it. I will skip this one. Football and tanks on ice were the best so far. :great:

Opposite team bombed our Mark I near our base... repair kit spawned near enemy base -> LOL 

We couldnt get repair kit to Mark I in more than 3 minutes. This is just beyond joke.

Yes those bomb/repair kit spawns can really screw you over. Like, you spend good amount of time getting to a repair kit on the other side of a map, and back to the Mark I, only for bomb to spawn 50 meters away from the tank, and tank gets blasted again before anyone can even react.

 

That, and people who really shouldn't try to get bombs/repair kits as they slam into nearest group of enemy vehicles with it thus trapping themselves and dying, costing your team a lot of time trying to pick that up again.

 

But can't really complain since the whole thing does not mess with your stats, you get your ~750 XP no matter if you win or lose, and on defeat your credit losses aren't even worth mentioning, whereas on a win it's a guaranteed ~15k credits. So yeah, brainless fun, and if we get to keep the crew all the better.

That would be a nice reward

At the end of the event, all Lanchester vehicles will be removed from the garage, and the crews will be placed in the barracks. If no slots are available, the tankers will be placed in temporary ones which will disappear once the crews are placed on a new vehicle. All XP stored on the Lanchesters will be transferred to the Vickers Medium Mk. I.

 

Did you read the article? :P

Mods are for noobs anyway. If you can't play vanilla WoT comfortably, then I don't know what's wrong with you.

Some people need extra help in the form of 'special' mods.
