Steel Hunter is here and it is accessible to grizzled veterans and rookies alike.

The problem is that over the years you've pissed off all my friends that were playing this game and they've left......

Mainly due to bad balancing (and catering to worse and worse players) but also the over the top RNJesus nature of this game.

 

Some of them have come back recently but have left yet again as it's only gotten worse over the years (gameplay wise).

Nope, I will not trick my friends into playing this dumbed down consolified game mode. Make the original game great again (i.e. more tactical and "realistic" and less arcadey) and I will consider it :)

Its funny how suddenly i need to kill Flammenschwert , Rattlesnake and Red Dawn for expert badges , but will never be able to , since i need to see those tanks in Random etc battles ( this turned out as suggestion for support , and further - devs  :teethhappy:  ) 

 

Other than that , others are bringing their " friends " in solo mode , kinda reminds me of T22 rigging.

I really like this mode, however teaming in solo is a huge problem. I already sent the first reports for that.

So on NA they say NO to a toxic behavior and on EU is encouraged. But again, we are on a server that encourages people to "Forget school". Can we have the people from the content team replaced with some that at least have a bit of common sense?! And would not spew things that are suggesting that you don't need an education, just WoT....

 

As for bringing friends...Nope...Most of them left anyways (i wonder why)...

Lol, they encourage people to bring friends to form a platoon with them, you know, to play the platoon mode of Steel Hunter.

 

Can you show me where they encourage players to make synchronized launching to be able to team up in FFA/solo steel hunter battles?

I only see them doing advertising to encourage people to form steel hunter platoon if they want to play Steel Hunter with friends.

Did you even read the article?

 

Announcment

 How to invite your friends?

Once again, it's simple. Once you've joined the Garage, which is our main interface, choose Steel Hunter in the battle selector and you'll be ready for some "royale with shells" type of battles. You can either go hunting alone or in a pack, with up to three-players platoons. Just click on the "Create Platoon" button and find some friends there.

 

 

You guys are epic.

 

People rigging in FFA/solo by teaming up.
WG do an announcment reminding Steel Hunter have a platoon mode, so use this if you want to play steel hunter with friends.

"OMG! WG Europe is encouraging rigging in solo battles!"

I have been killed by a team of two and i was playing in solo mode (if this is justice then no comment). Also is too easy to loose chevrons.

For me was enough and said good bye to this mode. At least in frontline is only progres, slowly but surely.

Teaming is also happening in platoon mode.
Yesterday we were 2v6, but we managed to rekt them since I was level 8 and the other guy in platoon was level 7. The teamers were not smart enough to go outside the middle of the map for any pickups.

LOL.... that's just silly. 

Yes, I have played a few games in that mode and half of the time I can see tanks who are visibly acting together. On the other hand, how is it breaking the rules? "Every man for himself" doesn't mean that you have to kill everybody at once.

Timing and entering the battle at the same time with friends could be classified as one. But everything else - blame the game mode for being stupid. My best game so far = hiding at the border of the red zone whole game = 5th place. And I was unlucky enough so that red expanded too fast and pushed me to the open.

All friends gone from WoT and I'll not bring them back because the reason they all left are still not solved.

If they want some battle-royale we have way better to play and it's free!

I recently got a battle in which I became 5th, only because a team of 2 tanks chased me around the map for 6 minutes ( I used up 8 turbo charges for that). They didn't shoot each other but instead were fighting back to back the whole game, until they were the last 2 standing. If that isn't unfair, I don't know what is.
