Gameplay aspects:

- No minimap?? Need to press tab?? What??

- Enemy tanks' enhanced autoaim is too effective. I can easily dodge against green stats human players yet these tanks always hit their target

- Player tank too slow

- FETCH QUEST IS NOT FUN

 

Reward aspects:

- Not even any credit reward for playing this game mode. XP locked to tank, all you get is a tiny bit of free XP

- Long term reward requires playing ~200 games and effect lasts only ~7 days. Sure it is +50% XP and +50% credits... but XP I am pretty much spamming +100% personal reserves anyway, so the +50% is more like +25%. Similarly, for credits I'm spamming +50% reserves so it's more like +33%

- So if I want this unrewarding 200 games to be worth it, I need to play 600 games after getting to level 13. In one week. Not possible.

 

Good, I can give this a pass.

The locking per day thing is horrible. Either i'll just play the bare minimum for the level 13, or buy it with clan war gold. Either way not losing anything and honestly its too boring to play much.

5000 gold for 14 days of the bonuses mentioned above? I think I'll need to have around 200k gold in the bank to be throwing away like that. I'd rather use the money for an STG or Cda when it goes on 30% sale

 

Speaking of which, aren't the gold prices for those a tad higher than normal?

As I said somewhere earlier, the Developers want us to grind play the game as much as possible and nothing more

The tank itself feels really sluggish. The enemies are too accurate too. Not worth the grind. Not fun either especially since the reward is already pretty low.

Stats on the left are outdated, look at the purple statz on the right please

So...does that means hit rate is not a determinant of skill, but rather a determinant of being a bot?

 

Also, not having a minimap is just evil.

It goes onto the vehicle. If you check your free exp you'll see you can convert exp from the Revenant. So yes, you're expected to spend gold to convert it all. Personally I would've preferred to have put my own MT-25 crew on there so at least there would be some point to playing the mode, but alas...

 

I suppose at least there's the small daily increments to credit and exp bonuses.

Probably it goes as exp on ms1 for you to convert with gold.

Well I would have used my LTTB crew and filled the extra slots with MT-25, but unlike last year we dont have any crew

Not a fan of the graphics finding the colour scheme very hard to look at

 

Not much skill involved as its pretty much YOLO out grab green and run back

Have to agree it's far too boring to play 200 games worth.

 

Are there any goals besides the boost and the mediocre camo? I can't find detailed stage results anywhere, even though some people have bought them already.

 

Has anyone done the math on the optimal stage to play up to for us players who don't care much? Where do you really hit diminishing returns?

And yeah, a sluggish tank combined with super-autoaim bots means that you never make any thrilling escapes (which would at least be fun). You pretty much know that you're going to get shot once you see a pack of dormant tanks and the only question is if there's enough allies nearby to win the fight.

 

Also has anyone else completely failed to ever have a team trigger an objective or whatever those things are called that provide a special boost for the match?

The optimal stage is whatever stage you get as you play 5 battles daily for the 75k credits mission. Even this is probably small returns to people who can earn over 500k per hour.

Personally I think the main thing to grind for is the weekly mission for 15,000 free xp, you earn more free xp in the process and and 15,000 free xp would normally require 300,000 earned xp, or 300 decent games with a premium account, which you can earn by playing around 20-30 games of the halloween event.
