Really nice to see this game mode back again. Good job. 

 

Please, for future, think about bringing Winter Showdown mode (with Mammoth, Polar and Fox), that was also awesome mode, credits, crews, fantastic.

Rewards are definitely nothing special.

 

Some paintjobs which I'm not going to use it anyway...

 

I think rewards for playing "Steel Hunter" was way more better than this...

 

I will try to get that Special racing medal and after that will probably not going to "touch" this mode again...

At least the three commanders with 3 skills will come in handy.

Yeah. Other than that, nothing else.

Well, you know, gotta clean up and prepare the track, remove the debris, add more flaming barrels... 40 minutes cooldown shouldn`t be much of an issue.

Hmm! Winter Showdown was pretty cool indeed :)

You are right, but the mod is supposed to be fun in the first place. Occasionally there are, and will be modes that do not only provide fun but also a decent injection of rewards :)

Too early to say for sure. Still, as you can see, we have not forgotten the Port!

@Falathi: any plans to let this race mode allowed for real tournaments too (https://worldoftanks...en/tournaments/) ? 2014 a real tournament was a part of the race event. This would be more fun and challenging, because the rewards are not so good...

Port is near useless without a decent selection of cheeses, though… We can always use more cheeses… :popcorn:

One question, though… Since the tanks are Russian, German and American and the crew training booklets we can win are Russian, German and American as well, does that mean the reward commanders will be Russian, German and American? Or can we select their nationality ourselves when we recruit them? :ohmy:
