Is the joke that you need to download a 7GB client to enjoy a simple gamemode meant as an april fools gag?

Indeed, if they wanted people to test it out, then they could have made it available in the real game for a limited time and then remove it after that... like all their new game modes :trollface:

I am actually confused by reading that, is this game mode just a joke or is the joke that the gamemode is real but just in a bad state on purpose?

So I expect you download a 7gig "game mode" just to get a colourful screen of 'APRILS FOOLS' when you start up.

april fools jokes work differently. First announce the fake information and create false hopes and believes, THEN reveal the (un)funny truth. but thx for the January-to-December fools treatment of your customers anyway ;)

 

what you just did is "hey, this is the april fools joke for this year, hahaha, Ruskie is funny person."

Try disabling update seeding in the settings, as backwards as that sounds.

 

You can also try the old 'backup trick': Install the Sandbox/CT client, but quit the download. Then copy the entire WoT folder (save for mods, replays, screenshots) into the Sandbox/CT folder. Restart the downloader. That usually leads to a smaller download as well as kind of a bloated folder and potentially, but unlikely, some issues. I do it with almost any CT and has worked fine so far.

WG You don't need to try so hard. You constantly deliver April Tools with nearly every patch. Now to the actual mode:

1. Make basic repair and aid kit base for every player (upgrade with drops and spawns).

2. Make best drops more spread on the map.

3. Make killing players worth it (with random upgrade or something), right now there is no point to do that its better to run around and gear up.

4. Make upgrades respawn in some random points. Right now if you are unlucky at the start or you kill players at start you only get weaker then players that collect gear and drops.

5. If you change tank you should keep more ammo and let players pick from 2-3 tank There is to much RNG in what tank you can get.

 

Great mode with great potential :great: Reduce RNG balance and polish it a bit and put it in game please :izmena:
