The new steel hunter mode will be available from 26th of August to the 16th of September.
 

 

Gameplay from the new mode...

 

 

Regulations...

 

 

  • The 4 km² map (zone 404) area gradually gets smaller. If you stay inside the hazard area, you'll lose HP.
  • You can improve your tank by collecting loot from around the map or doing damage and kills.
  • 20 single players or 7 platoons of 3 players can play on the map. The last player/platoon standing wins.
  • The platoon must be full (3 players) to enter the battle.
  • Platoons fights against each others. There is no mixing platoons and solo players in the MM.
  • Using the radar mechanic allows you to find enemies but it also shows your position.
  • Special equipment for this mode can be mounted on your tank which add new capabilities.

 

There are 3 tanks to choose from. They can be upgraded during the battle extensively...

 

Red Dawn
 
Rattlesnake

 

FlammenSchwert

 

Zone 404 Map

there seemed to be some custom mutant tanks in the mode.

i hope they let us decide what kind of hull - turret - gun. combo we want to use. 

going to be a pass most likely if we dont.

There are 3 tanks to choose from:

 

Flammenschwert

Red Dawn

Rattlesnake

 

I don't know if you can customize those or not.

well thats a shame.

could have been cool to pick parts that i want to go with.

a cool power score thing could have worked to keep some kind of balance.

Spoiler

 

that would be so cool.

Just noticed that all 3 mount a derpgun. Hope the higher level will have AP guns too...

 

Wait... They said up to tier 8...

What if we get a KV-4 hull with an IS-3 turret? That would be epic! :D

 

Edit

Of course the gun would be the long 107!

It isn't very clever really. Those are the abilities you can activate during a battle:

 

  • Smoke screen (hide)
  • Trap (slow down enemy tanks)
  • Airstrike (well, that's the crying part :))

 

A few bits n' pieces from the cool folk over in RU...

 

  • The platoon must be full (3 players) to enter the battle.
  • Platoons fights against each others. There is no mixing platoons and solo players in the MM.
  • Looks like the upgrades to those 3 tanks are quite extensive.
  • More information about the rewards will be available soon.

Thats indeed why I am not going to bother. I think we get way too many events this year. One after another without any time to just play WOT.

 

If you need events for people to play you have:

Spoiled them way too much so they expect it every week

Your game isnt good enough to keep people playing and perhaps you should fix that.

 

All these events are interfering with the normal gameplay and that is something I do not like.

Medals, who cares about medals? Like really, what the hell?

And this mode again shows how wg don't care about actual game problems and stil using their resources on short modes which most of players will play once or twice.

Maybe you, me and the Dutch can platoon for a game or two. Maybe even KinkyTail can join us. ;)

 

It doesn't have to be all or none. A couple of games, a few laughs with the possibility of derping someone in the face. You can't catch them all! :)
