When will the tanks disappear from our garages and do we get to keep the crew (all 3 of them)?

FYI: If one had unopened cards after getting reaching enough points to recruit Buffon, WG sent the cards to oblivion and one does not get the 30,000 credit compensation per duplicate card one deserved.

 

Edit: The unopened cards were actually credited today (2.8.2018) when the football tanks and garage slots were removed.

It's over - thank goodness for that.  I no longer have to put up with the Bufoon *edited* and his cheesy idiot grin.

Was told in general chat to quickly sell those TX Sport tanks for 3m each as a nice easter egg :trollface:

 

 

Quite a funny play-style BTW. The old version was pretty cool as well.

 Those stats, are interesting i wonder if this could be implemented for individual player next season just for curiosity. Despite uneccessary hate iam going to miss this mode.

I think it was sort of fun, but only when you could platoon-up with your mates. When you "randomed" your chances of win dropped considerably... (as regular MM, but that is another topic :hiding:)

 

I wish in the next football iteration it would be more tanks and less football.

  • Let us use our full crews and let them be trained as good as a premium tank (or perhaps better), then it would be worth the effort. The free XP and cash was ok.
  • Make it possible to ram the ball with better effect, this time the ball just moved a bit. If i remember correctly the last time you could really ram the ball and it got a big bounce.
  • Do not use a boring football field, but more like a regular map with bumps/undulation and mud. I am thinking of something like parts of the field in the Pilsen map (but without the all buildings). This would eliminate the boring direct goals, when one team missed their first shots and the other hit, which often made one of the members just leave the game and that team lost.
  • Do not make it so easy to leave, I saw that happen too many times. That made it a sure loss for that team.
  • Insert some and breakable items, like cars, trucks, tractors etc for more mayhem.
  • Make it more crazy, perhaps add artillery strike and smoke from Frontline Mode. And maybe respawnable power-ups! "I smashed the tractor and got an artillery strike! Ye-haw!"
  • Use the funny/weird tanks of tier 1-3 instead (and smaller ball?), how wonderful wouldn't it be to machine gun the ball across the map with a Light Vic or a T7 Combat Car :great:
  • Add more stage prices, emblems, camos and stuff... Minor items, more often. This time it was a horrible RNGesus prayer fest. Same card, same card again and same card again and again...

 

Full disclosure: I did grind the whole stuff to get the camo and commander, not of joy but of greed ;)

That's a strange definition of horrible RNGesus prayer fest when the mode was rigged into giving you all the cards you needed as long as you played enough battles to earn them. Unless you are one of those guys who skipped reading out the description and didn't find out that different missions always gave a certain type of card.

 

Daily mission I: Score 1 goal - Always hands out 1 Midfielder card

Daily mission II: Win 3 Matches - Always hands out 1 Defender card

Daily mission III: Win 5 Matches - Always hands out 1 Striker card

 

There were 2 Striker, 4 midfielder and 4 Defender slots that came with 3 tiers of cards. If you wanted you could skip mission III after day 6 since by then you would have them both maxed out and further winning your daily 5 matches would always drop a duplicate Striker card. After completing Missions I and II on the following 6 days (12 total) you had a full set.

Was a fun event, liked it very much.

only 58k got buffon? :ohmy: glad i am one of them!

By the way, do we get "extra gold" for keeping the sport tanks in our garage until they removed next patch as with FL tanks few months ago? :)

Yeah, we got in this mode for a whole month. It was good enough to make old friends team up again ! :honoring:

About stats, there could be more leaderboards with some rewards. 

Anyway, in the end i can't be unhappy about the mode but still the fact that there had to be money rewards is still fact and a huge motivation for thousands of players that could be playing in the tournament.

1,886,015 participants, interesting, I am one of those participants, I played maybe 3 times, hardly significant, which is how I viewed the game mode.

I wonder how many others played long enough to find the game not worth the themed garage, and how many played more than a dozen games?

Always take statistics quoted to you with scepticism because someone is trying to make their point using data they have processed and chosen!

Well, this time i found this mode way less enjoyable then 1st time its been in game, so haven't bothered more then 3-5 times. But hey, entire game is much less enjoyable then what it used to be anyway, so maybe its just me.
