I hope in a more balanced mode this time.

Two years ago this mode was extremely easy for the WT (for the players with more than one neuron) and extremely impossibile for the Harriers.

I'm here only for the outcry when people realize there are lootboxes involved in this event. :popcorn:

 

Ps: No reroll mechanics this year?

Whether there is or isn't..... No one is being forced to buy them so what's the biggie?

Two years ago this mode was extremely easy for the WT (for the players with more than one neuron) and extremely impossibile for the Harriers. 

The mode was reworked and made more interactive, for both teams but it still requires coordination between the Harriers and the the Blitztrager can still lose if they don't know what to.

There are no reroll mechanics this time based on your feedback from last year.

Once the event starts you will get more info regarding all the changes.

I am quite happy we can get the Max Von Krieger as a crew member (hopefully with the unique voice lines it had last year in the WT e100) since we could not get it last time. :):unsure:

The event’s main reward is the ASTRON Rex 105 mm, a brand-new Tier VIII Premium American medium tank, which can be obtained from the Vehicle Gate (more about this below) with a certain drop chance.

So we are on the same slope as World of Warships.

Yeah Frontline ain't what it was is it? Plus the rewards are non existent... they realised we liked to play it so why have rewards at all? What is it with WG and this uncontrollable urge to change everything every time? More often than not they adjust the fun out of the thing or develop it into something it wasn't and totally ruin it?. Why are some things that do not work absolutely sacrosanct and must not be addressed ever and yet everything else that foes work must be changed each and every iteration? It is truly beyond me?

They dont even play their own game so they are clueless.... Its almost as if they want to kill everything off in the game but are doing it in a non-direct way, so that its slow and painful like, you know?

Will WG disclose the probability of getting an individual  tier 8 premium from the lootboxes? :popcorn:

 

Just curious how much WG is willing to keep its promises...

These events keep getting more and more complicated. Guess WG finally caught onto the strategy of "make getting rewards complicated so people give up and just pay for them."

Who TF asked for a removal of reroll mechanics? It was really beneficial to the play... oh.

 

Guess WG accounts department asked for the removal. That solves that little problem.

 

Also, kudos on the balancing of that medium. Once more working hard to increase the premium spam with long reload, low standard pen (compared to the powercreep) tanks and low ammo capacity, forcing the tryhards to go full gold to stay flexible. Catching up to EA in leaps and bounds, guys.

Right loot boxes at Xmas are one thing. We buy them for Xmas I am not keen on the idea of flogging my guts out for a RANDOM chance at something? I will have to look at the prizes more carefully but I do not want to see boxes more than once yearly. These things are all connected and they are trying to introduce a World of Warships meta to World of Tanks (just like Crew 2.0) they are relentless and I for one do not want it....

A lot of people were complaining about it because they'd keep rerolling as long as it was possible and were ending up paying gold and not earning any from each box only to receive something like demounting kits at the end... It was badly implemented, perhaps it could be fixed somehow, but I remember a lot of people were angry with that, so Dwigt is right, it was community request to remove that part.

"The Blitzträger auf E 110 is a formidable tank destroyer with overwhelming firepower. Designed by Max von Krieger, this incredible feat of engineering is equipped with a gun with an autoloading mechanism. One penetrating shot can easily take away well over half of a Harrier vehicle’s entire HP pool." Well.. nothing new if you play tier 6 and meet a  T 56 that hits your tank :hiding:
