Unrealistic. I get the feeling WG is banking on us using the top tier rewards to bankroll playing our top tier tanks.

I would say that these are the following factors, versus Medium level:

 

Champions:

At tier 8 level tank microplay is far more important than it is than tier 6 - that is the player skills often determine the success or failure of a given tactic. The reason seems to be that the Tier 8 tanks push extreme characteristics moreso than those of Tier 6 - on the other sense, you could say that Tier 6 is also more happy-go-lucky with instagib mode tank KV-2 and the 2 shot you're out KV-1S.

 

Absolutes:

Large teams are required, and relatively small payback

 

The odd tiers (7 and 9) could be nice for a change, alternatively mixed tier profiles like HB to force some more creativity in combinations.

Was just watching (with English subtitles) KTTC #24 and where Alexander Kurgan discusses the upcoming Legionaries/Mercenaries feature in Strongholds, it occurred to me that this may make it easier for clans to use members from sub/sister clans to field champion detachments.

I would love to see some stats on numbers of skirmishes at different levels.
You can bet that WG has this data.

I would expect that mediums would be the vast majority of games right now, and I do believe this will be detrimental in the longer term.

I don't think the stronger clans go there for the joy of roflstomping the weaker clans, that would just get boring.

But unfortunately the rewards and the economics don't make anything else worthwhile.

You can play mediums all evening and not lose money and grind the fastest RP.

Playing higher tiers you can lose a lot of money and also earn RP more slowly....

That's just broken.

In the first couple of weeks of stronks, our server apparently had more Absolute companies going then NA did. Unsure if thats remained true since then, but low numbers on all servers wouldnt really surprise me.

Youse clam wares clams, punching above your weight :veryhappy:

 

Am interested to see how the proposed SH tweakings work. I'm not sufficiently immersed in the minimaxing aspect of this play, to get a handle on the grist of  what Alexander Kurgan  said an/or implied in the KKTC vid.
