Happy Monday, everyone! 
 

Let's talk about soccer!

 

About two years ago, soccer mode made its return to the game. This year, the mode arrives again to celebrate the nations gathering in Russia to battle it out on the football soccer field. 

 

Soccer Mode will begin June 14 at 02:00 PT | 04:00 CT | 07:00 ET, and will run until July 29 at 04:20 PT | 06:20 CT | 07:20 ET.

 

Want the basic rules? Like the previous version, this Soccer Mode will be 3v3 and the first team to score three goals wins (or if 7 minutes go by). 

 

To read the finer details of the mode, please check out the article here: Soccer Mode: Ready for Kick-Off

 

We also added extra elements to the mode that will get you in the competitive mode, so be sure to check out the article. 

 

Best of luck, and see you on the soccer field!

Why not a football mode? Heavies can be linemen; meds- LBs, TEs, and FBs; Lights- WRs, DBs, RBs; Arty- punters and kickers, etc.

The only thing possibly dumber to bring to WoT than soccer would be American stye football.  Hmm, maybe bowling.  There are games for those sports already.  I don't know who Buffoon is, and don't care.

 

Please, bring back a mode that clearly almost everyone enjoyed....Frontline.

 

Dumber? Really? While I agree with your statement about "games for those sports already" and bringing back FL would be a better option, I just want to say American style football is more like a tank battle than soccer.

Rugby, with all the heavies pushing each other then a medium kicking a shell out to the wing where a light can take it in.

i prefer the first time that i have played soccer mode ... only T-62A both side... WHY ? : because i know already that an ally will play the support role and go in the ennemy side to score a goal with a E100 as exemple( there is nothing bad about it but it a support role Defender role ).. but for the commentator’s that is awesome... 

 

So my question is : is the defender ( E100 ) have any zone restriction ??? ( exemple : cant go past the middle field ? )..

Instead of middle field how about around the goal on your side that your supposed to be defending. but also you would have to use like a semi invisible wall but its got to be able to let certain things pass through.

this is the ideal.. use the base invisible wall that allows shells to fly through except.. (take note I am kinda seeing it in a script kinda of way) 

Invisible wall check: shells=true: AMX 13 105 SPORT=true: T-62A SPORT=true: Soccer ball=true:E-100 SPORT:no

(Its supposed to always check to see whats allowed to pass through and whats not supposed to pass through although its a rather simple... its would require extra work.)

P.S. if you do actually implament the ideal stated above at least allow the players to switch between the defender or being striker or midfielder. but there must always be a defender...

'' defending '' i personally think midfield( over only the goal section ) would be better to allow you as defender to have some space to work with your ally... that why i think the defender should never be able to cross midfield..

Even better idea: Will they ban people using cheats to autolock the gun on the ball this time around or will they let cheaters reign supreme again?

"Complete Your Collection
Throughout soccer mode, you can start your tank card collection. Their rating combined in a squad of 10 will help you earn some amazing rewards you won’t want to miss!"

 

 

as usual, not enough information, just teasers.

I am curious if the crew xp coefficient is going to be decent as I would like to have another highly skilled french LT crew afterwards.  from memories of past events, only the 8bit version seemed to offer enough crew xp to have a useful crew afterwards.

 

of course bonds would be nice as well...

had a blast plying this mode last time but I don't know about the three "different" tanks this time around.

 

we will wait and see.


 

and cant wait for the two year olds to have their temper tantrums because other players can shoot the ball in the air or moving fast across the ground and they cant. had a lot of good laughs at the crybaby comments last time around.


 

also dear WOT brain truss, please don't give us 20 articals about a mode/event and only give us partial information, just wait till you have it all together and give it to us once.


 

looking forward to trying it out again, just hope the new changes don't mess the mode up.
