Excellent camouflage discount!

 

But the x2 crew experience will probably bring out the masses :sad:

Hmm 50% cammo is nice,

 

No solo missions?

 

Usually you have some type of mix, something for everyone.... eh meh this time I guess.

 

I still have the on track stuff to do so.... I am also working on unlocking a B-17 so looks like I will get it this weekend.

At least... Ummm... The missions are nice...

I guess this highlights the change from discounts and sales to missions...

7 vs 7 based missions only.... That's cheap, forcing people who follow the missions to play a game mode they probably don't like.

 

Working as Intended I suppose....

I think they are talking about the team battles 7 by 42 format

Not impressed. 7v7 means same tanks (IS-3 & T1) over and over again, boring. Not interested.

 

WG trying to get suckers to use up their premium consumables and ammo in 7v7 under pressure from clanmates to use those things just like in CW. It’s their racket and thousands of suckers fall for it just like the do for CW. I’ll pass.

Some of us are still struggling to participate in Team Battles due to mods interference / bugs...

e.g. Blank screens that display no player names and doesn't allow selection of vehicles

Can someone help me? :sad:

Well, a bit on the weaker side, but we can't have the top of the barrel every time. Besides, I'm glad we are finally getting some Team Battle missions rolling!

 

More detailed review to follow, as usual...

 

- x2 Crew Experience: Always a very useful bonus, no matter what level of play you like or how much experience you have.

- 50% Camouflage Discount: These are seeming more common lately... I don't have enough tanks to put camouflage on!

- "King of the Mountain" Mission: A great mission if you can run enough Team Battles.

- "World Champion" MIssion: Another good mission if you have the time this weekend. I like how WG is giving out some decent premium time lately.

- "Last Tank Standing" Mission: It's decent, but that part where they require that you survive....

- "Eyes on the Prize" Mission: Apparently, T1s are supposed to spot for the tier 8s in Team Battles... that is rarely how it works out in Team Battles and League Battles alike.

 

Overall, great for people who play Team Battles, but one of the valleys in the mountain range of weekend events. And remember guys, WG does throw a pretty decent event at least once a month, so don't complain about the little things when there's most likely a big event coming up in a couple of weeks.

I actually love team battles, but they are kind of a drag unless you have a team and caller who that are familiar with each other.

I like the team battle missions, but as a weekend event this seems pretty thin.  No tank discounts or bonuses, pretty much just the discount on camo, with the crew SP thrown in.

 

Hopefully they have something a little more impressive for the upcoming anniversary weekend.

Nah, jsnazz still has him beat, but a wide margin.

Pretty much my thoughts, except there is a related tier 8 tank discount already in game, IIRC.  There are still the monthly missions, too.

 

I am looking forward to the anniversary weekend.  Maybe we'll get the rare, and very much appreciated, premium ammo sale and equipment discounts.

Nope Tier 8 discount ends today.
