So today, an hour ago, CT got updated to feature a new game mode. It's called Battle Royale.

Supposedly it's for the April's event, in a test phase for new features/modes.

You should be able to download it yourself already.

- Now you can turn off your engine by pressing N.

- New spotting system where you can only see main info about your enemy while aiming.

- Map decreases by 5 squares.

- It's done by a new team.

- New (reworked) map BF Epic Normandy

- 40 players. One against all.

- You can loot your enemies.

- Airdrops.

- You spawn without any ammo, perks, etc.

- NO ARTA.

- New music.

- Duo mode. Groups of 2 people, so 20 platoons.

- Inventory system.

- Map is 3000x3000.

4 normal shells and 10 HE.

If that means how it was in beta then it will be 0.03 seconds before someone writes over target markers mod for it.

 

As for the rest, it sounds like they jumping on the bandwagon of the latest trendy game mode.

Also, every man for himself.  How long before the mode is dominated by one tank?

 

You wouldn't want to play with a turretless TD for instance.

I see (elsewhere) that you are limited to set tanks.  That's OK for a short term fun mode but I don't see it having a long life if people can't use tanks out of their garage.

At the risk of appearing negative, it sounds like the kind of garbage I'll play once, then wonder why they didn't do something more useful with their time, like make their game better.

I don't know if the mode is bad or it just feels bad because the game is garbage.

Well you can thank gamespot for giving them the idea awhile back. I don't see how this can work well here vs other games. But battle royale is the new zombie mode everyone must have. I guess it was just a matter of time before they got it here.

If this is just for April's event then I'm fine with it, since it sounds quite bad to me and just WG riding on the Forntnite/PUBG hype wave. Don't see the point of them wasting resources on a shoehorned mode, would much rather see them bringing back Frontline.

I myself think its a very interesting idea and one that is in full support of it.

 

No doubt there will be whiners about this mode as there always is, no matter what is done or tried..... Players complain about OP tanks but when they bring one that isn't OP they still complain, people complain about maps being taken away or needs changing yet when one is added or changed they still complain and now with the players complaining about lack of variety in game and when they do try adding something different and giving it variety and what a surprise, players still complain...... There is no winning but i digress.

I think it looks very interesting HMMM..

 

I love the map size and the look and 'Reach' of it...For it to work it might be better also to have more options in the way you want to play the map ie ;3 man platoons or even 5?..

 

 

Would like to see the map introduced as mabye a... '6 to 8 teams of 5 to 7 players'.. so there might be some thought or even tactics used?(I could see clans using this mode?)

 

 

..Not to sure about the single player concept tho?

Id try it.. Can you choose from selection of tanks what to play or is everyone playing the same tank?

When even QB is EXTREMLY salty about the mode you know you got yourself a turd in your hands.

I watched him play and right now he just called it "RNG total trash". That should tell you what kind of gamemode this is.

 

I wont touch that pile of trash with a 10 inch pole.
