Hi Everyone,

 

With Season 7 ended, I believe many of you will be asking what & when's next.

Season 8 will follow shortly after 2 weeks off-season break, and we have some good news here.

In Season 8, we will see:

 

1. Up to 160 provinces - more land for clans to operate.
2. Revised province gold distribution - better separation of low and high income provinces.

3. Dedicated in-game missions - to resupply your war machines. (Tier X front only)

4. Some minor tweaks to rules.


We will announce more details next week, please follow our portal news closely.

And while you are waiting for Season 8, feel free to spend some time on the reworked HD maps in WoT 1.0, you might find some new tactics or strategic positions to surprise your opponents in Season 8.

 

By the way, we also confirmed that there will be a Global Map Event after Season 8 ends, so Season 8 will also be a good timing for your clan to practice if you are aiming for bigger prize in Global Map Event.

 

Cheers,
Mobius99

​So 2 week break from March 26...  ​Is that April 9, or April 16?

 

 

Either way, seems that we should be hearing some details of the new season really soon, no?

It's not like bonds were advertised for season 8.

They were only given out last campaign, and if I'm not mistaken we'll be getting a campaign after season 8 ends.

Even if your clan wins decent gold per night, and you personally get 200 per night after it has been split up among the clan, that equates to about $1 AUD worth of gold. Not sure how compelling a motivator that reward is, and most clans wont even earn that

 

Anyway, is this season 8 is basically the same boring format that failed last season. Almost as if wargaming CWs ideas are conceived by a flawed AI rather than an intelligent creative human. Ideas and suggestions? Dont bother, it does not get past the AI filter...

The players asked for more provinces. We got more provinces.

 

Honestly, stop whining that you don't get given thousands of gold for doing nothing.

Yeah, those 48 gold provinces on the tier 6 map really helped motivate the clan to play CW.

More lands, more clans participate in early tier 10 TZ will be more funny. Come and get some gold for your clan :rolleyes:

No, gold does not particularly interest me, and not sure how useful emblems are either. The more people that win gold, the less likely people will be to buy gold from their store, bonds cant be bought for money, It just makes no sense.

 

Bonds are far more interesting and useful. Maybe also something like annoying high sheen red camo that is considered historical and cant be disabled by other players.

 

Anyway this is pretty much the same forumla with more provinces. We had trouble fielding teams last season, with players coming up with all sorts of inventive excuses to get out of CWs. Maybe others are pumped for the fight, we will see

I appreciate the more provinces wargaming has added to the fronts allowing more clans and battles to happen.

 

My only real query is why did you put every gold pot (1008 gold) province on 1 side of the map?

 

I just looked at tier 10 and they all on the West side, all other provinces spanning to the east are less than 1008 gold, so little action will occur on that side to be honest.. unless its a lower skill clan keeping away from the pots.

 

Also noticed that 3 gold pots are joined from 20:00 to 22:00 even though in 3 seperate timezones (1 hour apart) they all are joined together meaning they can be held and collected by 1 clan adjoining provinces without having to expand a front. if you spread them from east to west or a bit more random, makes it a lot harder to hold multiple pots on 2 sides or makes people push out to obtain a 2nd gold province.

 

I feel alot of thought wasn't put into this again.

The plan is that the stronger clans will fight on towards the gold, and lesser clans still being able to participate at tier 10 will base east. The new map is much better than previous. Less gold but more provinces is a good thing. Clans should be forced and spread thin if they want to farm.

The closer the gold pots are together, the more closer the better clans are to each other and the more reason for them to fight.

 

I see no problem with this, especially as we have a few clans that would love to be on all goldpots.
