That music track, Aleksandr Khilko - Race 2019, sounds very much a plagiat of Jan Hammer's Crockett's Theme.:harp:

Read the page but it is still not completly clear what I have to do to get the commander. Any can link me to it or explain ?

If you well / do damage / do stuff in a race, you get one or more race rewards. For every seven rewards you collect, you get one jigsaw puzzle piece / photo fragment. There's three commander photos, which each consist of 20 fragments. Every fragment you collect lowers the gold cost of one of the commanders by 5%.

So you need 420 rewards to get all the fragments. That will be a looong grind.

Will probably be too much of a grind for me to go for rewards, hoping for a fun and casual game :justwait:

Well people on Discord have gone with Turbo, so I guess you are already at a disadvantage.

"other solo players" = "players from the same clan" maybe?

Since when 3 x 20 = 420? Am I missing something?

 

 

EDIT : I guess it depends if we can get fragments we already have or not.

Just the quote from my post.

 

For every 7 rewards you get 1 picture fragment.
1 photo consists of 20 fragments so you need 7x20=140 rewards to complete one photo.
There are 3 crew members to earn, so you need 3x140=420 rewards to collect all the fragments since at least there won't be duplicates.

This is an excellent distraction helping to vent out the frustration when the game client freeze randomly for 1-15 seconds every time a wheeled vehicle passes SPG's bird's-eye view aim. I hope this is not freezing as well. All hail Wargaming.

 

PS. Please note, that I am not claiming that the graphics engine is not able to handle properly super fast vehicles properly as that would be toxic and heretic. World of Tanks is perfect as it is and so are the wheeled vehicles which are so much fun in Armoured Warfare for those who like that game and play it.

i thought you can only choose one commander?!

edit:
i was wrong...

Racing Collections

During the event you will have the opportunity to collect three racing collections. Each collection is a puzzle consisting of 20 Fragments. Once you have completed each collection, you will receive a reward —a unique commander with the Brothers in Arms perk, and enough experience to learn two more skills or perks.

The reward for each collection may be purchased for gold, and each received Fragment provides you a 5% discount on the purchase of a reward for the collection.

Each completed collection earns you one commander.

@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...

 

Just keep the tournament page open and refresh often. :)

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!

Please think really hard about how this mode has to compete with x2íng your tanks, Frontline, clan battles, and even other games....better rewards are a must, especially credits.
