I know that the timing isn't optimal but that mainly due to the situation in Minsk and we couldn't postpone SH but the game by now has different events and game modes for all of our players. Steel hunter progression was reworked and you can see by now a lot of players already reached the last stage. I'm playing SH casually and haven't won a single match YET and I'm on stage 8 :) Should be easier for you!
I guess the same goes to the A46 marathon but in the end it's up to you and your availability. If you want to go for the A46 or if you want a tier 9 tank from SH you still have 3 episodes to catch up (if you already have the tokens from Frontline)!

 

Good luck :)

WG is a huge company, can't it say "torturing political prisoners makes us uncomfortable, please stop it" ? The president can't really do anything to you.

i played solo and it took only 4-5hour to reach rank15, there is daily missions for bonds, but yeah there is no reason to play after rank15.

Maybe it's only me, but Frontline was much much more fun...

Not come across any teaming up, so far. But I did discover the frenchie is particularly adept at hiding to get the win :trollface:

Not enjoying one bit - too depended on luck, multiple tiering inside single game mode etc. I'll most probably just slowly grind with the daily missions (max. 2h per day) as this seems quite forgettable for me but for the minimun effort tier IX tank is an ok reward.

 

But nwih I'm gonna touch this mode after rank15.

Unbalanced as [edited].

The Alrequin is too slow to outrun anything on tier 1.
For some reason other tanks are just as maneuverable and can keep up on tier 1 so the Arlequin is dead when found early.
The tier 7 HE cannon is garbage. 

The machine gun is the only worthwhile option on the tank.
The powerups of the Arlequin are underpowered compared too the rest.

An airstrike that does basically no damage and stuns, and the top power up is a bomb that can be shot down that does 500 damage tops.

While the Raven's trap means that the Alrequin  is always dead. the trap is way too powerful.

I gotta love steel hunter, i enjoyed it last year if we ignore the massive rigging but till now that seems omost non existent.

My opinion is it should be harder the grind but better prizes, theres no gold like in frontline and ranked and there should be more credits and bonds too. WG stop cutting the prize pool, its getting annoying.

PS: Try to balance tanks.

Certainly not my favorite mode and not a patch on Frontline. Yet again, WG bring in a mode which favours only good players, You can drive around for 8 minutes ignoring the battle just collecting supplies. Really hopeless tanks and uninteresting mode so gone back to random battles which are much more fun, Only good thing is the Arzagir 4.04 map which is awesome. Really hope WG ditch this pointless and uninteresting mode and stop making players having to play it who do not want too.

Okay, so, you cannot upgrade your tank whilst in active combat.

What are the precise conditions for being in active combat? Does being hit by an enemy count? Penetrated? Damaged? Do you have to be during yourself?e

Because I just got killed by an enemy who I was face hugging and who upgraded their turret whilst I was shooting them.

First of all, I don't really understand players whining about having to finish top 5. You absolutely don't! You deal 15000 dmg over any number of battles and kill 1 tank and you earned 1100 points. You can finish 20th as far as WG is concerned. Being top 5 just makes things faster. 

Also, can someone explain to me the purpose of experience earned and how can I check how much of it I have already earned? :D

I believe that exp goes to the tier 1 tank of the same nation as you earned it on, such that you can spend gold on getting any use out of it.

Click on your free exp in garage, it brings up the "exchange to free exp" window, you can see how much you got on each tank.

They gave exp so you wouldn't feel scammed when you get teamed and don't have replays and because of it lose 10k credits thanks WG lol

aaaaaaaaaa
Have to wait 1 minute for battle, better 1 millisecond for battle and get VK 100.01P on Prohorovka vs tier 10 where one team has 2 wheeled tanks while other got 2 regular lights because too long to wait 1 minute for a potential 10+ minute battle aaaaaaaaaa Q_Q

Like this mode and u get to 15 MUCH faster then the boring frontline mode.

The games are short and fast and to be player 1 is very easy.

Just dont be stupid to try to kill all tanks. drive around and always upgrade to be faster and u be safe to drive out

of danger.

 

played 4 hours and have 15 already, frontline took me a whole weeek of frustration

I wouldn't compare the 2 modes since the gameplay is way different. You earn credits and xp but you have to resupply all the used tanks after every battle. 

 

 

It's hard not to compare the two game modes when WG took away one that I thought was fantastic and literally replaced it with another that's not as good imo.

 

If we had free choice to play both game modes I wouldn't care about or even comment on Steel Hunter at all, but when I'm forced to pick only one then it's fair to compare them.

 

Some of the old game modes like chaffee races and tank football were super fun and allowed us to train at least one crew member that could later be used in our normal tanks.

 

Thankfully I've already got the two reward tanks that I want and I have no interest in that obj 777 so I don't need to play SH at all, but that doesn't stop me missing Frontline... for 48 weeks this year.

 

Oh well, too bad so sad I guess.

 

Happy hunting to all you Steel Hunters.

Best mode for bots with mods. Annoying how bots with 500 fights win match after match

Overall I had fun with the mode, but clearly I'm swimming against the tide :P
