Hopefully the mode doesn't end up too rewarding. I already planned to rest until the Christmas event.

The timer does not match the collection, heading out to collect is already a daunting task with almost every group of "dead tank" is full of enemies. With such a short time wasting more time killing them and when you finally did kill them you are rushing back to deliver dark matter while timer tick faster then your tank can deliver. On top of that you have rng buff that screw with your tank and you can't run on a straight line. Making most of the match at bare minimum you could only collect around 100 per match, that is if the team didn't went all crazy on calling up sh*t loads of enemy to screw the team over. So how much do you need to hit lvl13? A whooping 26800 points. That's about 268 match just to get a bonus that doesn't even last that long.

You just need to plan better to get the most green matter in a shorter time and with fewer trips. I've only had one match where the final score was below 100 (it was 84 to be exact), but that was due to players running out and getting themselves killed over and over. Most of my games so far have been over 150, and couple have been above 200. Also picking up essences can help a great deal; the essence of agony is worth 60, transcendence is worth 20.

 

As it is though, I'm not sure that taking on those heavies is worth their 20 points, even with lots of support. They just take too long. Far better to have several players swarm the mediums and lights.

Let's use conservative estimates shall we, I mean we have seen people saying they can get 1k XP and 2k damage per match when the service record says half the value.

 

Say 100 XP per match, 268 isn't a lot actually. A weekend's work if the battles are short.

 

But are they rewarding tho. The football mode gave me prem time that lasted until last week.

The Dark Front is the worst Halloween event i have come across. The execution of the mode was done very poorly. Not the visuals , but the core gameplay.

Bad point :

Grindy

Repetitive

Almost no action other than dont drink and drive.

Visuals , not bad , but could have been done better

Bots can grind this mode for some easy boost. Very very bad for the other guys.

Whats the point of this mode again ? Not fun at all , the boredom caused by repetitiveness kill all joy in log in to WoT.

Good point :

Easy to do

Problem is if I remember correctly you can't yolo this in a day, after a level it does not allow progression (idk if they store your remaining result for the next day or not), effectively means you will have to sit out 13 days ... it took about 45min today for 400 ..... more for tmr as every day progression increase by the number. On the last day if you manage to complete everything you get maximum of 50% more credits, 50% more exp, and 200% more free credits.

 

Not sure if they have any other reward.

But this is the PvE mode that people have been crying for. A mode where even a potato can win will remove all toxicity.

No toxicity or flaming sure , but it is hardly motivating. Kinda like Farmville style of gamplay.

There are better games if i want to try out that particular style.

I mean here is that , the game mode was probably done in a hurry , little polishing and no action pumped gameplay. Since players arent shooting at each other , toxic gameplay is like 75% down , so i can live with the other 25%. Thats fine. But to me this game plan is a failure , cause i dont feel its fun when its like : Dont drink and drive.

The tank handles like a drift car that lost  it's "no fat chicks" sticker lol. Pretty mundane game mode .... you did better last year.

-5/10

Too grindy, less about shooting, more about farming green stuff, and low reward. 5/10. They rush out this thing? Submarine is better by long shot.

Fair boring. No skill needed. Drive around, right click, don’t even look just shoot and run over green crap. 4th game I yawned and hit the esc key back to garage. Disappointing mode.

 

edit.. and the mechanics are all borked. Spawned bots backflipping when coming alive.? Seriously.?

Actually, farming those big guys isn't too bad if you get the 'Essence of Zeal' or 'Poe Anomaly'.

 

Overall though it is a tad grindy. Less toxic for sure though.

It's a PvE mode, but not what people were asking for. WoWS has decent PvE, especially with those campaigns.
