How many battles did it take? I feel like it's quite a lot.

Say what you say about the FV4202, cent 1, Sabaton.  Mine are excelling in this mode. 

 

Switched from using the STA2  to the 4202 or the SWE machine.  This two tanks alone made me over a Mil. 

 

Love the mode.  Great argument for tier 8s to get their own mode anyway.

I'm skeptical. Haven't seen anyone in game with more than 1/2 so far.

I don't even leave work for another two hours after that.  Then an hour to get home, then dinner, then anything that needs to be done...

 

Restrictive playtime is a d***

Depends on your ranks. If you get general or Major often, not that long as you can skip 2 ranks then at a time. Vs 1 or at the time or less if you get Capt or lower often. I'm almost done with my 2nd prestige and it did take way shorter then the first one. As I had more general ranks this time around. As you learn the lay of the land better on each zone, you learn to attack and defend it more effective to farm the most damage.

 

Personally I've mostly played the Progetto 46, ELC and CDA 105 as defenders to train crews. And Progetto 46, Emil I, T32 and a dose of 44-100 & T34 "with the FL crews" as the attacker for Crew XP and normal XP. As I lacked the engine and tracks for the Emil I, but 15K into the gun atm. Stock gun pen as the attacker is not terrible as most play meds and TD's as defenders. So gotten 5K damage on it a few times in one life.

 

And yes I find it fun. But it's only due to re-spawn, repair zones and portable arty or recon vs targets you can't pen or see etc. If it was just random on a bigger map, I suspect most would find it less interesting.

I'm finding the opposite tbh.

As a defender you're set up to lose.

Kills/deaths lose their meaning. You don't gain or lose control of the map, you go to a flank and clear out enemies, turn back in towards the base and get shot in the back from where you just were as new tanks have appeared from thin air.

That only three objectives need to be destroyed means that no matter how well you defend, the zone 5 minutes away being lost loses you the game.

The destruction after cap mechanic shits on you if you have a slow tank - you can't get away fast enough

The spawn points are too far from the action as defenders, most of the repair points are too exposed

You can be winning a fair engagement and are then suddenly outnumbered by new tanks coming in

New cap mechanics make it pretty much impossible to defend a cap alone when your team are to busy trying to farm damage instead of play for the objective.

That it is only tier 8 brings OP tanks to the fore.

VK100 far to strong pushing up.

SU101 and CN TDs far too strong on the defense

You can't flank them, the flanks keep gett8ng reinforced, so they get into a good position and are nearly impossible to dig out, then you kill one and another takes its place...

 

Oh and tier 8 random mm is even worse as there are less tier 8s to fill the matches.

 

Suffice it to say i don't see why everyone loves this game mode.

Seriously, go play UT, Quake, TF2, CS, overwatch etc instead if you want this sort of gameplay.

 

I would seriously welcome randoms on a bigger map.

And chatting on the statusreport discord last night, at least with those who were there at the time, all of the above seemed to be the common opinion.

I mostly used progetto and try not to die. Once I stayed alive for the whole match and did 20k combined. Skorpion G is good at both attack and defense aswell.

i was thinking it's easier to defend but opinion might change only played it a couple of days

 

it seems that if you push the attackers of the cap, you can then just farm them coming back in, especially if you get on top of their respawn rate as you then out number them as defenders

Then they die, respawn elsewhere, overload that cap and advance that way.

They'll also happily come back later in bigger numbers too.

 

 

Also, just wtf is up with the freecam?

Freecam has been in the game since forever (freecam mod is literally just a config file change to enable it) yet they introduce a new one with this mode that is of a fixed height above the terrain, so when you move it around it bounces up and down all over the place, and the camera rotates like it is on the end of a sick.

Both combined actually make me feel nauseous.

I used FV4202 in this mode too. because it doesent need to brawl with its worthless armor and can use its accurate gun to snipe and generally be a good medium, places to go and flanking is viable.  then you play it in randoms and its worthless.
