Typical. I know this is going to be another rant post, but for some reason, WG seems to love doing something wrong, even when they introduce something decent. The limitation of the event to such few battles per day is rather disappointing, and even though I understand the argument of "but we don't want to disrupt the random battle queue", I still disagree with it due to the fact that other events didn't have such limitations.

 

Overall, the event is alright, but I don't have that much of an idea about it because I was only able to play 4 games -.-

Flaws based on what I read seen are

1) game has been crashing when I try to view what mission I've got for near on a year now after server numbers pick up, so I've not known you can earn fuel.

2) get one or more afk in the team for the whole event and you're going to lose whilst they get points is seems?

I haven't played this yet (still at work) but the posts on here are already convincing me to quit this mode, before I've even started.

 

So I get 2 battles a day ... unless I grind a mission in randoms - which case I can "earn" 2 more, OR I pay money to progress to a higher level that will give me a few extra battles.

 

The battles themselves are going to be far to hard* unless you are in a coordinated clan platoon,

Especially when you consider that the match maker will put you into a tier 3 battles (because 1 (or more) of the 9 others in your battle has splashed the cash to get to tier 3) and at that level ALL of the enemy tanks are the super elite, "instant loss is they cross the line",

Oh and you're going to be firing HE from tier 4s at tier 7 heavy tanks that can 2 or 3 shot you. 

 

*And even if you're in a coordinated platoon for all your battles over the whole of the 5 days, you're still going to struggle to get the 2000 points required to win a rammer.

 

Did I miss anything ?

Fellow tankers, a question. I don't care for purple equipment, but I like to paint my tonks in (more or less) stylish camo.

In Homefront, three different camos seem to be up for grabs: 1st Guards Field Army (RU), Desert Rats (UK) and Old Ironsides (US), awarded upon reaching Level II of the related division(s).

 

Conveniently I could buy my way up to Division Level II for 350 gold, which is the usual discounted price for 'preset styles'. Huh, isn't that something?

Basically, I can buy the camo and be done with the event. Or play a bit and buy the ones I didn't get for free (for playing).

 

So, the question is, what do these camos look like? Do we know? Would WG kindly show us the stuff they're selling?

Halp?

What is this mode? This is a blatant cash grab. You said that you will never sell bonds for real money. Well 9k gold=10k bonds. Good job! Also this is a very nice idea of PvE with very bad implementation. Fuel Cans? 4 per day? Really?

3. Awards are pathetic

I am done with this nonsense

Not worth time and money, for sure

Let us play the mode as much as we want... you put so much work into it and then put a token- AND time-limit on it? Why? Does not make any sense at all...

 

BTW: Did the servers just die? lol

I just got kicked off the server for "sceduled maintenance". Yeah, right.

 

I bought one of the boosters and it didn't boost my level but gave me the rewards for having done so. Maybe that's why they shut it down.

Do they stack ? do you know that ? I mean those 2 we get every day. If I am not able to play one day, do I still get two new ones or are the gone by the end of the day ?

 

They do stack and you do get 2 cans per day whether you consume them or not. :)

Be carefull what you edit. We might get Eekeeboo in a bikini now Friday ...

 

If you made a Dingers bikini we could try to convince him.

 

Please keep your cool and check again the information available before making accusations. With this mode we are experimenting a PvE format and we are open to your feedback to see how well it works, and if it doesn't, why and what can be changed in the future if we ever decide to introduce similar initiatives. We are open to your criticism but we invite you to express it constructively.

The event cannot be considered pay to win, as you are not paying to achieve the prize or win every battle, you're just getting a helping hand to get there - you still have to play to earn the rewards, even if you get to division 3 right away.

While the game is free to play, we still need to sell part of the content to keep it running - you are not obligated to buy it (as for example, in this situation, there are ways to earn fuel cans for free, that you can check in previous staff posts, all of you seem to have forgotten that you can earn more cans by playing well) but of course there has to be a point in spending your money if you are willing to.

As I wrote just these days in another thread, limitations are added to the game to make the challenge consistent throughout the whole duration of the event - no challenge, no fun, no interest. Plus, as Eek's written before, it makes no sense to have a huge rush to play in the first 2-3 days, have everyone achieve the prizes, then quit the mode entirely.

And finally, I can't believe I have to write this but, please do play the mode before criticizing it. :)

 

PS. The servers are temporarily down for emergency maintenance and they should be back up in roughly 1 hour, apologies for the inconvenience, we will update you.

point 1 is moot - in this mode you can flank (if your own team hasn't folded already)

"scheduled maintainance" they call it xD - then again, I had loads of disconnects before, so hopefully they stop that at least ^^

Absolutely garbage mode tbh. Forgetting the fact that probably newbies are cannon fodder to those panthers, you dont even let us play the freaking mode. 2 cannister a day at start? You dont even get to make an impression. And ffs, let us use our own tanks. I have probably most of the tanks that can be used. Why am i forced to use a garbage retal? Better just hand us those rewards as gift and spare yourself some 50 pages of negative feedback.
