English language version;

WoT – Battle for the “The Final Frontier”. (New PvE event)

Intelligence reports that the enemy is armored to strike your positions. Command order: to hold lines at any cost!
 

Tankers!

Soon you will find a new PvE event. Choose one of the units and fight side by side with other players against the advancing waves of enemies under the control of artificial intelligence.

The enemies are many and your chances of victory slim. Will you be able to survive this last stand?

Team-based PVE battles are coming to World of Tanks – stay tuned for more details to be revealed soon!

 

Meet the enemy fully armed!

I am not so sure, if that will break the community... AW was not that successful with PVE and PVP...

It could work, we have a lot more players and IIRC AW PvE mode was well liked, there were just other issues with that game.

 

Plus it theoretically takes the players out of the game who just want to press W and shoot tonks, this could, if done correctly, improve the level of play in randoms leaving the more competitive, multiplayer driven players there, whilst the casual I just want to shoot tanks players might more go to PvE. 

 

Just a thought.

If i interpreted that teaser correctly, this mode will have more of a historical setup in terms of tiers and tanks. Remains to be seen if there will be any XP or credits income from this mode or if it has special tanks like the dark runners MT-25!

Not sure about that - yeah the tanks shown might be more historical, but I wouldn't be surprised if they got swarmed wave after wave with stronger tanks, starting with many lower tier tanks, and ongoing successively stronger, maybe ending in some +2 or worse "boss".

Basically comparable to what WoWs does in its PvE battles.

The timing is suspicious! :)

– On July 25, a PvE gaming mode called “Homefront” will start (the last frontier in Russian): it’s a new event in WoT! The enemy is coming. It’s time to take the defense. 

Be one of 5 heroes who can stop enemy tanks and hold lines at any cost

 

Choose one of the units and fight side by side with other players against the advancing waves of enemies under the control of AI (PVE). 

 

During the night from July 24 to July 25, 2019, there will be a micro patch with the PvE itself, the Homefront mode, and the change of directory names for modifications to / mods/1.5.1.3/ and /res_mods/1.5.1.3

Basically "Art of Defence" from nineties games.

 

It could be an interesting addition, though how one keeps it from becoming stale is another matter entirely, as most modern games with such modes have now fallen from grace due to franchise fatigue.

 

Also, there is no way on this Earth that this is going to be a completely free mode, thus the question of what form the Hook shall take is a worrying consideration.

Yey! I've been asking for PvE for YEARS. Now is this just a temp mode or a perm mode? 

 

Now, before the whiners get here complaining about AW's PvE killing it, all im saying is a lot more than just PvE killed AW. PvE was well liked in AW even if the bots were ridiculous sometimes. 

What put the nail in the coffin for AW was them firing obsidian, it emerging my dot com was owned by mail ru, mail ru deciding to turn AW into a clone of WoT, players deciding they didn't want to play the same game twice, and the CC's rightfully trash talking it to death. Absolutely nothing to do with PvE.

 

Now, lets look at the potential for adding PvE to WoT. 

We could all have the pre-nerfed, 1 shot capable artillery. We can fire as many HESH and HEAT rounds as we like, as bots wont come to the forums complaining about gold ammo spam. 

EBR's can platoon in 3's and have fun racing around without annoying the living hell out of another unfortunate player who's on the receiving end. (and that player quitting the game because they don't have the time or money to grind a tier 8 prem.)

We can buy and play with as many OP premium tanks as we like without being shamed or made to feel guilty for playing them / buying them. 

Toxicity will be reduced. 

Increases creativity limitations - I.E - the devs can develop more new ideas, scenarios, missions, fun modes etc. 

 

WoT needs to get out of the rut it has been in the past couple of years. Im not saying PvE will be perfect and will fix everything, but at least they would try something new instead of doing nothing.

Yeah? What did you call to Halloween 2017's Leviathan and Halloween 2018's Dark Font if not PVE?

Bots won't accuse you of cheating after the battle.

Depends if they give it a trash reward and make it into a grindfest like Frontline has become. 

 

Correction, it will be great until it's "tweaked" and then ruined.
