New campaign, it's been a while :)

 

Honestly, it's really a shame you are putting the 907 up again, more of them won't be beneficial to tier 10 in general.

 

The new reward system sounds funky but was it needed, that is the question?

 

At then end of the day though I'm appalled the CW's are only in Tier 10 vehicles nowadays, it completely kills variation and drastically narrows the tank selection. Tier 8 and even Tier 6 add a nice spice to proceedings both in tank selection but also tactics.

Honestly I don't know why other tiers were removed from CW campaigns. To be frank I find tier 10 wholly boring to play with all the completely over-armourer tanks and compulsory premium ammo spam 24/7.

Great job announcing a campaign 10 days prior to it starting. How hard can it be to announce the start and end date two months prior? It can hardly have been a surprise that there will be a campaign.

Probabaly as Tier8 is now dominated by premium wehicles.

Once before for Tier8 CW most of people used IS-3 and T54lw with T-32, AMX 50 100 etc. etc which were all tech tree wehicles and everybody could get them for free (if you do not count your time).

But now T8 is dominated by premium wehicles and would make t8 CW pure P2W.

 

Not sure how is situation with T6 but I guess T35-85M is quite dominante there so...

Plus 7 O-I base camp on city maps was not much of fun

they could solve this by preventing premium vehicles from taking part in campaigns

Well, that is WG's own terrible fault with atrocious balancing but why remove the actual variation from the campaign? It's bad enough to play WoT for weeks on end every evening but when you see the same 3 T10 tanks all that time it quickly becomes a chore.

 

Besides that, the IS-3 is still very viable for T8 and so is a WZ-132 for instance, same goes for Tier 6, the Cromwell still works fine etc.

That being said, for most clans/enemies/fights the problem lies not in the minute differences between tanks but rather inferior tactics.

Yes, could be solution but would probably open lot of problems.

Because people purchased them with RL money and can not use them in CW and they purchased them with intention to use in CW (and did use it) etc. etc.

Clasic story with changes of Premium wehicles...

 

BTW, I like that it is again 2 week campaign. I never wanted to commit to those "old" 4-5 weeks campaigns as for me it was to long time to commit for.

That is why I only played old T8 campaigns that lasted 2 weeks.

What's the minimum number of points required and or games played to enter the hall of fame? Looking at this from the perspective of the people who misses out on the top 10,000 and so their only way is to bid on the 400 up for grabs in the auction.

Errrh, could someone be that kind and clarify this for me?
"At the same time, the cost of a reward vehicle will be based on the amount of the personal Fame Points of a player on 10,000 rank plus 4,000 bonds.

 

Are the reward tanks going to be for 4000 bonds or it will decrease in the price (for example: If im at position 4500 the tank price will  be 3000bond?)

Probably the price is set at 4k, but you will get bonds as a reward which in a way lowers the price. That's how it were last campaign.

How does one enter the Alley of Fame? Are there preset criteria, or would playing one battle be sufficient?

as I read that bonds will be given on different amounts from the 75% to the top, I'd say HoF is going to be filled with the top 75% of partecipants. Position10k will be functional on the FP, no chance to anticipate an amount

no, it means that if you're the 10k guy, you'll have no FP spare to buy other rewards because yours are gonna be exchanged (+4k bonds) for the tank

if you're higher as position, you're gonna have (youFP - pos10kFP) FP to buy other rewards aside the tank

Can anyone point me in the direction of an up to date guide on clan wars as it is now?

All the information I can find is in bits and totally disjointed.
