I said this once and i say it again because it needs emphasizing, bring back Homefront because the BOTS in that makes the general playerbase in Randoms look really bad and is it just me or since the Disabling of Team Damage increased Passive/Camping play tenfold!?

Now i don't mean to sound judgemental or anything bad because i understand not everyone is perfect and just the casual player but the amount i see who dont even try to play the game is what i am targeting this response to..... How does one have fun not doing anything but just camp and wait is beyond me

Homefront was a failed project.

Homefront was good, far more challenging opposition on average than on randoms. I'd wish WG would give us bots already on randoms, so Id have teammates to rely upon.

The greatest challenge in randoms comes from your team, not the enemy... :hiding:

Perhaps there was fun to be had with five friends at same tiers but as a solo game it was kinda garbage.

Yeah, Solo was not all that but in a full Toon was great fun!

I found it dull, ground out some camo which was reward enough couldn't stick it out for the equipment, would agree that the bots were better than many random players myelf included at times!

I found it decent and liked it. Never platooned in it, finished 5 out of 6 divisions anyway, except for the british one with slow tanks. The bots are much better than the average trash that appears in randoms.

 

It should, maybe have an episodic system similar to Frontline, and each episode would have some small rewards.

Camos are good enough prize, better yet If they are historical.

I just skipped all Fronts to Tier 3 as the Reserves were good with 60 each 1hr 100% from Tank & Crew XP i believe it was but also managed to get both Special Equipment..... Yes i have no life, i know :D

Well..interesting sure. Long time fun? Less so. If they added a few maps for it and removed the fuel aspect. They have something. If anything it also showed how WG can make more lower-tier maps. By using smaller areas of current larger maps.

If we take the average IQ, which at 100 is not exactly smart, and reduce that a bit for unfamiliarity with a game that has quite a high learning curve and benefits those who can be bothered to acquire a deep knowledge base, it is hardly surprising that even bad AI is capable of taking on and defeating an average player.

Long term fun always depends on how creative you can be. Add a small garage for the mode so people can play different levels, more unique consumables, more complicated axes of attack and you got a popular fun alternative to randoms EASILY. The question is if WG actually wants that, an alternative to randoms i mean.

 

About the fuel, it was a geometric increase. Once you unlocked levels 2 and 3, you can play as much as you want. That's not bad in itself because that system of progression was designed for the 12 days period of the event. It had a couple of side effects though.

 

  • Math isn't why people play this game. A new mode is available and i want to explore this new stuff. Playing 2 or 4 battles per day isn't going to help with popularity as much as following the constraints.
  • People who bought level 2 or 3 and had a lot of fuel to play were in a bad position. They can't platoon with friends unless they buy fuel too and if they solo they'd hit the MM wall of frustration.
