This is great news about bigger maps and new mode, that are so much needed. Hope they will have success with this mode, not like Rampage.

I think some players will always be unsatisfied whatever WG does. Bigger and new maps are badly needed in this game!

I am so glad they are trying to implement a new mode! Always up for more variety in the game!

It's 3km x 3km, basic math :), so those maps have the size of 9 current 1km^2 maps

This could be something nice .

I like    30 vs 30  

I realy like new maps that go with this mode -- i hope the maps are nice

 

I'm not sure about the tier 10 restricion -- like advances -- it just means a lot of players cant play it as they lack a tier 10.

Not sure about all platoons -- but doesnt have to be a bad thing .

 

Tier 10 has the disadvantage that it can cost a lot of credits --- i think one big reason rampage didnt take of -- besides the idiot mm where people could join a team with only one tier 8 tank , why was that even possible , when u was in a bad team , the costs of repairing 3 tier 10 tanks could get annoying.

The campaign missions that were to go with rampage were a bit to hard for most to take a shot at.

let's hope WG will leran something from their mistakes! Sure thing is though, they'll really need to think through the economics of the mode really well. And about the players that dont have tier X tanks... I really dont think they should have the opportunity of being included since they still need to learn the basics of the game. Having all those new players there would just ruin the exerience for the others.

30 vs 30 players ... dayum!!! Sounds interesting.

 

But restricting to tier X makes me remember the failed rampage mode because when it was introduced I had no tier Xs in my garage, I could only use the rentals you gave us for playing tier 8s and it was expensive as hell for a non premium user to repair 3 tier 10s.

 

And a lot of players still don`t have tier Xs. Are you sure you want to restrict it to tier 10s?

The idea sounds great, except for the fact that it is restricted to tier X. It will seriously cut down the popularity of the mode if it won't be open to lower tiers too, maybe tier V or VI at minimum. Not only because tier X tanks can be awfully expensive to play, but also because not everyone has a tier X tank to even play with.

Of course, if the mode catches on new players will be motivated to rush through the tiers even faster and buy a premium acount.

And if the mode fails they will have suckered a bunch of players into buying a premium account. It will be much fun to play with even more players who mindlessly raced through the tiers though

Happened to me during Rampage. There was also the lure of the T-22 medium...  Rushing to high tiers before being able to hold my own there, it wasn`t fun. 

 

Man did I suck and got my [edited]handed to me, and add to that the high costs of repairs, even on a victory, made me quit Rampage mode.

 

For the sake of the game let`s hope they learned where to improve and how to balance it. Because it does sound like an interesting mode. :)

I believe what they meant to write regarding the new maps is that they are working on 9 maps that will be 2 km x 2 km - double the size of the current maps. This makes more sense, since it is clear that doubling the amount of players requires the doubling of the map size.

Making them 3x3 km is insane.

 

9x9 km is even crazier. What are they smoking?

 

Later edit: 2x2km is actually 4 times the current size of the maps.
