Yup. Sparse, with a glaring lack of pertinent detail. Personally, I like to have a bit of documentation, as opposed to learning on the job (so to speak).

Times like this I regret being a lone wolf player. Would rather be on teamspeak co-ordinating with similar skill players, now I have to roll the dice and get stuck with scrubs and AFKs..

Has anyone worked out whether the fuel mechanic will actually mean bots can't progress through this?

Well I did 4 battles on the Ironsides team. Lost on the 4th wave three times, won the last one. Which left me on 58/2000 points to get the equipment, and about 2/3 to the second rank of the Ironsides.

 

Seems you will need to spend money on the first day to get both special equipment, because you need to get to rank3 in each team as quick as possible to get as many battles as possible. 1250 gold for example  will get you to 2nd rank on four of the teams, giving you an extra 4 battles a day. And better tanks to actually be able to kill the bots

 

AFK players and weak players are a killer, and I want to know why i was stuck on Ensk in three of the battles

Bots and AFKs wont progress and will be a curse. a 5 man plat with decent players is pretty helpful

 

I suggest starting with the Ironsides, so you increase your chances to get the gun rammer for your Manticore.

I was hoping for an improved camo net... ;)

 

But good to know on the fuel impact. I was considering spending some fuel to check it out but was concerned i'd wind up with similar teams to yours above.

 

I guess another broader question is whether it's better to do well in your team or win - ie play with randoms or play in a toon where win chance is increased but you may share more of the damage. By the sounds winning may be more critical to progression, so may have to wait until siggy's low tier expertise is available to carry me.

After a few Games in the Event it feels so much like a crappy Mobile Game, you have to wait until you are able to play per session and the Grind only forces people to buy in-game "time savers" to "progress more", it doesn't help that battles in this Event is VERY LIMITED, and people go unpunished (as far as I can tell) those who do little to contribute to that Grind making a situation where your "Fuel" goes to waste, WG why are you doing this to us?

This is blatantly pay to play, let alone win.

We are all going to love reaching level 3 only to be platooned by level 1's lol........

 2 games every 12 hours with shit tanks that cannot pen the high level enemies .... great fun wargaming :(

Boo to you, sir, you [edited] this one up royally.

Anyone got a strategy for this? Tried spending a bit of gold to get lvl 2 Ironside, always get platooned with lvl 1 other-players.

 

Seems that if you're going to spend for the level-up, it's best to get teammates with the same or higher level. Because trying to win with other lvl 1-ers is practically impossible, though I've come really close (always gets defeated by the Tiger Trio if lvl 2, by the Panther Trio if lvl 1)

You can earn 2 fuel playing randoms.

It actually did remind me of a mobile game like what IcAnz said above. The concept of PVE is fun on its own, but the idea of having to wait 9 hours just to get some fuel and 24 hours to have the fuel-earning missions reset. If you end up with a team that can't do teamwork or get themselves blown up several times before the final wave, then you lose the game. But by loss, I mean actual LOSS. Loss of time, loss of gold (if you spent any) And loss of chances to advance quicker.

Bit of a mess. Friend and I platted up, but with no one else around we got the usual numpties and lost against the panthers both games. Haven't earned any new fuel yet.

I didn't even know you could pay gold to advance until it was mentioned ITT and even knowing this I still haven't figured out WHERE you actually [edited] do this.

Oh this is good. If you upgrade to rank 3 and join a random battle, it'll still stick you with rank 1 players, only you have to survive all the waves as if your team was all rank 3.
