FL requirement is only tier 8 tanks which practice a big joke since everyone with own one tier 8 verhicle can join in. I suggest totall change into requirement at least having 3 tier 8 verhicles, 3k battles minimum and credits for reparing the tanks.

I have a few T8, my problem is trying to win too hard and I die and sit out at least 6 minutes per battle..  but that's me, I need to learn not to try..

Dont think if it as winning or losing, just get rank. the rewards are the same.

I know but its just because it feels better when team is trying to win... also you get longer if you cap but don't lose the caps too fast if you defending.  lots of people destroy objectives and there are still 3 bases to cap...

I'd like to see FL available to a wider range to tiers, but restricting who can play it seems a bit counter-intuitive

Either limit it to 3 tanks min or just give everyone with tier 8 tanks > 0 and < 3 two techtree tanks as rentals for this mode exclusively - that would allow testing other lines on the live servers and maybe mix things up a bit :P

Does that include 3 premiums? Or even a gold rental in those 3?

 

Then again I find it funny that you think it will make a difference. As most you do play with have 10 tier 8's and 30K games and still play bad. Then again you would also exclude those that did not tier rush to get all the tier X's instantly. But took their time up. And got their first tier 8 after 3K games. That still play better than most of the 30K on your team.

When first announced it was tier X only. Or showcased as tier X. According to WG it proved... problematic. No idea on what though. But then again, you have more premiums to sell for FL on tier 8.

Today's news is that WG have taken your concerns into careful consideration, sat around a table, discussed the matter in hand in much depth, paid much attention to your suggestion.........

 

and promptly ignored it due to more pressing concerns regarding getting plastered on Vodka and merrily singing communist folk songs:bajan::D

You can make fun of the OP, but it is a sensible suggestion, imho. It would certainly help poor newbies from getting into a game they are mostly benched. WG should offer a package of three rentals, though.

If they dont have 3 t8s they can rent some. Buy fort knox packages and support the game, owners, devs & admins.

Just for info's sake, if you reach prestige X, and there are 2 more FL's planned in next 2 months, if you attain level 30 in each, do you get the 6 prestige points which can be exchanged for 1800 gold & 600 bonds?  (essentially X 2 since it would mean prestige 12.)

Do you play with a premium account or credits reserves? Do you use food or large consumables on tanks for FL?

 

I know it was not really fun for the most part but it was at least useful for grinding stock tier 8s and credits. That's why i am asking.

I do like FL, but I also wonder why I do,well the new map is awesome,but what I can't understand is how you get these credit point things, are these awarded to you at the end of the event?

Took me 6 months to run into it and start level 2

If you right click on the FL tab you can get options

Cash it in to start again

I agree with the logic behind the OP's suggestion. The thing is, if you only have one tier 8 tank, once you are dead, you can't play for ages (is it 6-10 minutes?).

 

In theory, if you don't have the credits to repair, you can't play again that battle, but in practice, isn't the cost calculation done AFTER the battle? Not sure on that one.

 

I don't think the minimum number of battles is relevant (I've seen players with <1k battles that are better than me now), but requiring that players have enough tanks and resources that they can actually enjoy the mode is sensible.

 

Not forgetting of course the benefit for their team (or even the enemy) if they are actually on the board and playing, rather than benched because they have nothing left to play with.

After the battle. Otherwise, my thoughts exactly: don't allow players to play the mode that literally can't play the mode. Whether they be new to the game or sold all T8's or forgot to put crews in their tanks, a minimum of three available tanks is not unreasonable.

Must people do have tier 8 tanks but I think they sold it because tier 8 battles are unpopular in random mm. I see players more rental tanks now in FL.
