OK, WHAT THE HECK is up with respawns?

I have respawned several times mid map right in front of 4 or 5 enemies.

This is some special bullshit.

You can choose out of three respawn points. Pick the one that won't get you immediately ganked.

 

Of course, if your team is shit and doesn't spot anything... :sceptic:

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

You can get extra fuel from other missions . Can someone who has done those missions plz explain . Played a dozen random games different tiers and yet to see any mission results relating to Homefront .

 

Was wondering about this myself. Didn't see anything in the missions tab, but maybe I missed it?

They thought about how to make level 1 miserable, and charge gold to even check out the game mode lol.
The respawn [edited]is sloppy as [edited]! Whoever is in QC at WarGaming sold the farm on this release. (For the fourth time I respawned in pack of stugs lol)
Good for a laugh - at how pathetic WG are becoming. Micro-transactions like the [Redacted] phone apps lmfao.

Worst game mode ever.

While joining dots is perhaps a stretch but i thought the fact it took them a few hours longer than expected to even get the patch working was not a great sign. One suspects their play testing may have been about as long as their patch QA.

Where can I buy more fuel/level up? Can not find it anywhere. Not in the in-game store, premium shop.

I've already forgotten how I found the level-up purchase screen. :D

 

From my point of view, I'm basically just paying the gold to ensure I get the equipment. So in effect I've paid roughly 3k gold for about 5k bonds. Which, sure, fine. I still have loads of gold from the Christmas boxes (this buy FINALLY puts me down to half of what I'd gotten) and not much else to spend it on. The ability to play the game mode more often is an incidental side benefit. Sure, it's not a mode I'd play long-term, but 30-40 games? I'm sure this will at least be fun for that long.

 

The lack of tier matching for players is insane though. Going to hold off on more games until the MM has a larger pool of T3, or at least T2 players to draw from, so I'm not stuck with all T1 players all game, forcing them all into playing a T3 game.

It's buy bonds disguised as an event lol.

@alone12 : Choose one of the factions from the Homefront screen. Then you'll see the "open" bar to spend gold on levels for more fuel. There are 2 x daily missions for ONE fuel each also :P

There is no guarantee of that, you only get a finite amount of battles. On my current trajectory, I am not sure I will get both special equipment, so will focus more on one front over the other. Each time a division reaches a new rank, you get a one-off fuel bonus, but once the all you divisions have reached rank III, you are then relying on daily refresh and daily missions. I hope they up the amount of fuel you can get from missions.

 

Too many bad battles stuck with AFKs or weak players and you migt not get both equiptments

2000 points at 84 games needs an average of 23 points per game to get the equipment... So basically all 84 games need to be spent in one front ?

It's a gold sink that tests PvE at the same time.

Will give this one a miss. Looks like mission impossible.

I've been getting 33 points per game or so on losses that end at about the 6th wave of ten (you get more waves if you're up to Tier 3), so it seems doable even to a numpty like me.

 

Whether or not you can get two depends on what the rewards are for surviving longer, or even winning. Can't seem to find the points for that anywhere.

Okay, furthest I've survived was 8 rounds, which gave me 57+6 points, for a total of 63.

 

If you can play with enough non-muppets, I think it's definitely feasible to do well. The problem is that playing with non-muppets is a bit of a high bar!

It's worth noting that if you decide to focus on one front only (which seems much more achievable) you'll only have 78 canisters.
