Interesting!!

 

Question though: one of the big issues was the "fail-toon" in Homefront where Tier 3 players would get into the same battle with Tier 1 and 2 players, yet the mission requirements were those of the highest tier (in this case tier 3), which meant that the team had almost no chance of completing all the levels in one battle. Has this been addressed so you get in battle with players of the same tier only??

Want to speed up your progress and earn more Progression Points to reap rewards faster? Use "Assault!" Orders—special boosters that multiply Unit Experience and Victory Points earned in battles.

 

How is that in any way related to the Fuel system we had during Homefront? Its basically XP boosters...

The way I see it is that everybody starts with tier 1 vehicles that you can upgrade during the battle when making acchievments. The ranking is purely for the stages and prices .... but that is just how I understand it.

Oh ok, I was confused about that part: everyone starts the battle at tier 1 all the time and levels up depending on ingame performance. 

 

But then how do yuu explain this: 

You have the chance to boost your progress and shorten the path to rewards by purchasing special bundles in the game client. They instantly level up all your Units to Level III and contain nice additional extras

As far as I know we tried to take into account the levels of each player to adjust the difficulty according to it

You can play as much as you want. The orders are just multipliers

In the past we quite often had requests from players regarding PVE modes especially with a historical background.

What does that mean? 2x Tier 1, 2x Tier 2 and 1x Tier player in battle will have Tier 2 difficulty opponents (and xp rewards) in stead of Tier 3 level enemies?

Tank rewards should be up in May. If you check the US website it shows it is active at least for the US.

Like in Homefront you have different "factions" this time they are called Units, each of these units start at level I. As you play with a certain unit they gain Unit experience until you've collected enough to level up. Not in battle but in the garage. So the next time you take The Winged Spearhead out instead of level I T-34-85's you'll have level II T-34-85M's. You continue this until you reach level III with one Unit and then switch on to another Unit to level them up and so on.

 

Since Berlin gives double the victory points and you only get that map when you've reached level III it's safe to assume there will be a certain amount of grinding left to do for the Victory Points to get the rewards.

So far I do not know how exactly it will look like. The system will try to tune down the difficult to still let anyone enjoy the mode.

Ahhh ok, you might very well have a good point there.
