Dear community,

 

As a player that actually enjoys the Tank Football mode that currently is running I have a humble request.

 

If you decide to play this mode, do it seriously. It doesn't matter if you are good at it or not, but at least try.

 

Why am I asking you might wonder ... well ... I'm trying, together with my son, to actually achieve a nice ranking. This requires some serious winrates, and as an E100 player also some hard work scoring those '15 points' rounds. 

 

So many times, we end up with these nitwits that turn a 3 v 3 into a 2 v 4 right from the beginning.

  • By actively working against their own team
  • By just driving around, trying to see how far they can drive up the wall
  • By just sitting still, only shooting from where they spawn,
  • By being AFK from the beginning
  • By giving up after going 0-1 down 

 

Where some of those things might be overcome in a 15v15 (or 1v29 according to some), it's very hard to overcome with 2 guns (1 T-62 and 1 E-100) and basically it's annoying as fook, a waste of time for the team.

 

I realize this mode might not be taken seriously by some but if you really want to play 'just for fun' (aka be a pain in the butt to your team), please create a 3-man platoon and give the opponent an easy win ... 

 

Thank you.

You're preaching to the wrong crowd, here in the forum.

 

But yes, I agree with what you are saying. It is a bit of a pisser when folk just don't try.

And we get that in any, and every random battle too.

lol ive had some really crap games, well "Team" mates lol

 

Some will actually track own team, then complain for some reason, OR i'd get the other team just drive upto me ( am the defender ) and just sit infront of my tank just shooting me lol.

yeah i feel your pain seeing your goalie just shooting the enemy keeper all game :(

 

Only had about 3 games with 1 AFK'er on my team. But had about 10 games (still small amount) where one team mate has no clue about shooting the ball

 

edit: had one game where a 1700 WN8 player (other team) just drove into me all game, pushed me, shot me, tracked me etc etc. Still managed to score 1 and we won 3 nil though

I promise that I will never play the football mode. First time it featured, I did. Second time, I played a few. This time? No, never, not once and don't intend to.

Never played it and don't really have the urge to play it either.
Why or how should players take football mode seriously when the majority can't even take normal gameplay seriously? 90% of the playerbase plays "for fun" after all.

Fair enough when you don't want to play Tank Football ... :) ... each to their own I guess, the only thing I'm asking for is not so spoil the fun for others.

 

Personally I find the level playing ground, the no 'skill ammo' and no 'anti camping sky bombardments' a nice change of pace, not to mention enjoying some father/son time (the kid is actually good at this as well, which is a big bonus/help ) and you know what they say, A change is as good as a holiday :)

Request followed, haven't played a single game in that mode and won't in the future.

 

Should however Chaffe races come back, now there was a fun one :)

Agreed .. that was good fun as well :) ... And for CircleOfSorrow, tracking was actually encouraged in that  game mode :)

I try to track the enemy when they're near our own goal. Kinda makes it hard for them to defend their own goal when the ball does get in their half.

 

*I should add; when I'm in goal.

I tried it once, then opted for the 'not-at-all'.

It's football.  In a tank.  Why would anyone NOT take it seriously?
