unbelievable

start a game, don't listen to some to lay low and hide and wait the count down to 14

start to fight, first prem round misses, the enemy doesn't miss, the second round, a regular, does no damage, the enemy is lighting me up, and half your HP is gone,,,

the rest doesn't matter

2 chevrons lost, for WG "funny" (read idiotic) idea

 

next game, almost the same *edit, my shells bounce, while he (the opponent) magically hits weak spots

 

why bother WG? to satisfy some jester in charge in management?

 

STEEL HUNT is dead for me, I'm sick enough of random's "magic", shooting all game, not to do damage, while some 2K PR player, with less than 1K games, hits me on the move every single time, not even in a wheeled "tank", just because the outcome is rigged.

 

needless to say?

You're not supposed to drive backwards.

 

Jokes aside, the idea is probably to place some emphasis on hunt, and give people an advantage in an ambush. Think of it as headshot for tanks - just that your head is up your ...you get the idea. Also, consider that shortening combat encounters might be a good thing. If it took ages to take down an opponent, you'd have even less people seeking combat - and even more 'threesome' - which are arguably rather frustrating if you've got your opponent in a vice.

Can't say i catch fire in this mode more than in randoms. :teethhappy:

 

They said that in the article...

 

Steel Hunter: Regulations

Your Garage displays a diagram of the vulnerable zones of tanks. When an enemy hits these zones, the chance of critical damage is much higher than in Random Battles.

 

It's a part of the design so if you can, don't get hit in the back. Even if you do it's not a big deal as HP is plenty in this mode.

How can OP "close wallet" when Steel Hunters is entirely F2P.

 

Also OP should be happy, as Steel Hunters also doesn't not affect the stats so no need to reroll again.

Don't.

Fight.

(Early)

 

Seriously, people who waste their time fighting early in the game end up being bottom of the scoreboard.

Too true, however, if you get bumrushed by some red army hero, what can you do? I lost a number of chevrons. Solely because of people going out of their way to attack somebody else within 10 seconds of the start of the game.

I think hilariously the game I met you this happened. A guy rushed me right off the bat but unfortunately for him he only tracked me (and didn't even try to get around me while I was tracked) three times and bounced one of his shells too, so the guy had absolutely no ability to kill me. I on the other hand had spawned next to some ammo and also made my shots count. I almost felt bad when I could tell he'd ran out of shells and he just turned around and presented his rear to me, but I mean, he absolutely deserved it for going for the yolo as soon as the game had started.

He did, but the next time he will pen all his shots on the move or start a fire with his first one. I should know, been on he receiving end more than once.

 

By the way, how did you manage to get your minimap to show the whole map? I only ever see part of it.

What? My minimap specifically always shows only 1kmx1km (AFAIK), but I can bring up the whole map with tab. :unsure:

On that screenshot (forumites met topic) it looked like you had the whole map. Might just have been my misunderstanding, though.

Nah, it's very much only 1kmx1km. You can't see the railyard in the top left, or the frozen river through the middle.

So, you're here because you believe it would be as easy as seal clubbing in the Matilda, but apparently isn't so it must be rigged.

Maybe you need to lie down, relax and maybe try some PAIN__KILLERS?

Fire should be completely removed from this game mode....
It completely breaks the otherwise really good design!

Engine damage is ok, ammo rack is ok, view range/radio damaged is ok, but fuel tank is just completely broken. At least add damn fire extinguishers!

 I agree that fighting is risky most of the time. Tonight i have played aggressively and end up collecting nothing. 

 My last game i finished second killing only the third while he was fighting with the first .  So this guy fight that long and collected blue boxes to come this far and end up below the sneaky player like me.

Every fight turns into a dance of who will hit the other's fuel tank first. I thought using a repair kit extinguishes the fire, not sure but i guess not from some of the comments.

The fire is a bit too powerful in this mode. Would have been nice if you could pick up a fire extinguisher consumable.
