First impressions: seems like it definitely isn't worth it. Marathon like play to get a commander of some CC with an annoying voice. I mean I've heard of these guys but that's about it, it's not something I'm going to work to get. Perhaps if you're a big fan or something ...

 

Tbh I'm getting a bit sick of WGs 'keep em' playing' tactics and it's nice to have an event that's so easy to ignore.

IDC about the voice or the looks. I like some free camo though and a free 4 skill commander would be cool.
I'll play to get the rewards if the mode doesn't turn out to be awful.

I'd like to have one of the super commanders, but I have a bunch of decent ones still sitting in my barracks.

And it looks to be a major grind.

Having Awesome Epic Guys screaming in your ear is something I'm willing to grind for. :trollface:

To be honest the last thing I want to look at in my garage is those bunch of crime-watch looking chaps and tbh people who wear masks on Twitch...just a bit weird . Where's Sofi or SwedishLady you could have had 2 male commanders and 2 females.... it's 2020 not 1820.

Dont play for the commander just play for fun. Do you want to keep playing the same 15x15 random battles every day?

Won't 7v7 be dominated by platoons of good players?

Sofi is from NA and SwedishLady seems to not have a large enough following yet.

Half the numbers so 3 players will represent a very significant proportion of the team.

Not gonna bother with it.Sure the camo is nice but don't care for an extra commander.

Am I misunderstanding or can I probably just continue to play randoms, not bother with the mode at all and still get my stuff. I'm hoping that's the case, because for the life of me I'm not interested in playing a 7v7 Tier X Only mode when in truth, I don't even need any more camo, Commander or anything of the sort. :teethhappy:

No you won't earn enough points.

Got lots of spare camo's and still 7 commanders that I have no use for. I think you can guess my answer

Not going to bother.

 

600 points over 11 day period is 43 55 points per day.

- You can earn 17 points per day by playing a bunch of Randoms per day.

- Then you have to play 7 vs 7 tier X where a win gives 4 points and a loss 2. So at worst you have to play 13 19 games in this mode.

- Total time per day (@6 min battles) is 2 hours minimum

 

Tier X gameplay is considered a whole different level then other tiers, so lets give everyone (including 'bad' stats players,  newbs who dont even have a TX tank yet, and average players who have just started playing TX) a TX rental tank, without crew and go play against TX regulars with CW & Reward tanks (you know which ones), 5+ crew skills, premium consumables and improved equipment who can afford to gold spam. What could go wrong?? (Yes, WG did the same in FL, but thats a 30 vs 30 format so the gap between teams would be less noticeable.)

 

And correct me if I am wrong, I have never played 7vs7, but it seems to me the skill gap between teams becomes much greater in this 7vs7 format. Since only 1 platoon is allowed per team; having a good platoon vs an average platoon will be dificult to overcome, let alone if one team has more newbs vs the other. Imagine one team having a platoon of players in their rental WZ-5As with standard loadout, crew and equipment vs a CW-regular platoon in their T95/Chieftains with all the bells and whistles...:facepalm:

 

Unless WG are introducing a skill-based MM in this special where players are matched not only by vehicle type (including CW tank vs CW tank), but also by skill (blunicum vs blunicum and tomato vs tomato) to balance the teams, I fear this is going to go horribly wrong. TX regulars will rage more (correctly) at the newbs/noobs on their team, and those same nebs/noobs will have a fantastic (first) experience playing Tier X (/sarcasm).

 

One of the biggest mistakes imho is that this mode is restricted to TX tanks. Why not Tier 9? or Tier 7? We already have FL @ Tier 8 and CW @ Tier X. 

 

EDIT: adjusted the maths: didnt have my second cup of coffee when I posted. :hiding:

Yeah, I'm so not going to bust my rear in tier 10 7v7 to get a commander that I dont give two hoots about. 

 

I saw Crybaby's YT vid about it.   But Dez, yeah I like his content, but whats with the hiding your face sht, its like hes ashamed being associated with tanks. ((I'm going to sound a like a complete tlt if hes scared from an accident or something) Skill, I like the idea of a voice saying, RASHA! at every snapshot (if that could be a thing)  :) Never seen content from the other streamers so both mean nothing to me.

 

I'm passing on this. 7 V 7 tier 10 going to be fun for those without current Meta tanks.

T10 only? No thanks.

Grinding multiple hours per day? No thanks.

7v7 format? No thanks. Really strange decision to bring that format back shortly after Teambattles were discontinued.

When your event promotes suicide rushing over normal gameplay it is not a good event.
