Possibly starting on or about the 7th of August end of September...

 

"Tank racing returns"

 

This little dude is also probably involved...

 

 

More details later! :)

I mean I loved the Chaffee races, as even the rewards was fun as it did not take much effort to get them. But.... lets not hope that recent events have inspired either fuel tanks with 2 races a day. Or that you need to grind 90 races a day to get anywhere. Fun as it might be.

I do hope this washes off the bad taste "Homefront" left.

Why no AMX40 races?  Would require far more skill.

It was suggested along with the T95 when the races were on last. As tbh... that would be more fun. And give them the yellow duck camo they teased that one April.

I don't think the T95 would be a lot of fun but the reason I suggest the AMX40 is that I have clocked 80 kph downhill in it, so I think it would allow a lot of scope for ingenious play.

Was the previous Chaffee Races as good as I heard some people say?

Chaffee races will most likely require you to install an old build and then you get a camo from playing it 3 times... like that one we had earlier this year.

I like where this is going. Let's paint the most horrific of pictures to ease up on the upcoming pain of disappointment. Game Center will be a must.

It depends what you've heard.

It was a fun and forgiving mode to play, imagine a Chaffee with 1k hit points, 90 km/h top speed and an 1000 hp engine. A bit repetitive if you bore easily but there were missions with credits and XP rewards to help with that. I believe the rewards will be even better this time around.

 

Good morning and have fun! :)

Played it twice back than. Didnt like it. I am just not that into racing and suck in fast tanks.

 

But it will most likely turn into a grindfest so I am not that exited.

I never really got the fuss about it, it was pretty boring from what I remember, fun for a couple of races but then that was about it. 

 

Knowing WG there will be some sort of snorefest grinding required.
