A proper internet gameplay montage doesn't include things like side-scraping, hull-down or any other overly cautious tactics, but instead free-fall tanks, epic rammings, insane no-scope shots, and other crazy moves! From 20 October at 07:00 to 23 October at 07:00 CEST (UTC+2) it's about that sweet damage. And while you're at it, why not look cool at the same time?

 

Naaaah, think I'll bushkemp with an invisible high alpha TD and farm tears damage.....

Among other things , this is whats wrong with WoT ,  the tendency is for last 3 years. 2nd part breeds retard-like players with 0 knowledge of game mechanics. Why should we teach people proper gameplay , if we can send them to fight like swordsmen :facepalm:

You can only get the major reward once, so that is only worth 150,000 credits. :trollface:

Good of you to recognize that doing damage is the most important thing in this game to win matches.

 

Now make sure that pretty much all personal missions reflect this fact. So no more "capping" or "blocking damage" missions, it promotes dumb gameplay and stupid tactics.

20-22 October: Doing cool stuff is cool. But doing cool stuff while looking cool is even cooler. That's a lot of cools for one sentence, but you get the idea. With this special, you'll be able to gather lots of consumables and give a fresh lick of paint to your tanks. 

WAT ?

Definitely not what was on the October special calendar...

Damage mission and xp bonus, not bad, at least not hard to do, and it's more then nothing, I take it!

 

BTW the Halloween event is really boring as Hell!

Knowing when to give up the damage and cap instead is also important. I had a game in my Ru 251 yesterday where me and an AMX 13 105 won the game alone simply because we capped when the enemy team was too busy mopping up our artillery :D

 

And the blocking missions comes naturally when playing armored tanks as their job actually is to "soak up" the damage to protect the tanks without any armor. The thing that mess up these missions are all the premium clown ammo flying around.

 

Instead of just writing that they should remove these missions, maybe also suggest what should replace them? It sounds quite boring to have personal missions where every single mission is just about damage or assist :)

This is completely (well, maybe not completely, but close to it) contradicting to how WoT is designed from a game mechanics point of view. Why having complex armor, pen, aiming and spotting mechanics, if WG seemingly wants a completely different game?

I'm not complaining about the missions themselves, but something here is missing :unsure:

Well as you mentioned the customisation thing, how come now when you put camo on a tank you cannot re size the camo, why has this ability been removed.

 

 

As for this mission or whatever it is does this mean I can yolo like a boss:D

WG does not have a clue what they want, except your money, they want all of that.
