As per the title, do you like the new siege mode? Personally, I'd much prefer it to be manual. I often find myself in a close quarter fight on a ridge, nudge forward a little to take a shot, and the siege mode kicks in just in time to poke my butt in the air and put my shot into the dirt 2m ahead of my tank. It also seems to disengage the moment I press my W key, when what I'd actually like is to edge forward a meter or two IN siege mode, fire, and pull back again.


Anyhow, I'd just like to see other peoples view on this, especially compared to the siege mode used on TDs.

Not sure yet. Esp. on the T8 with no armor and pretty long reload you always want to pull back as fast as possible, so TD-like manual control would be a two-edged sword. A mix where siege mode is automatic, but you can enable a speed limiter with X to not disable it by accident might be best.

Less buttons to fumble with is always better.


Now they need to change the wheelies so they switch travel modes automatically.

It does screw up aiming quickly every now and then.
