Howdy Boom Jockies!

 

Soccer mode has finished with the conclusion of the Grand finals that happened on Sunday. 

 

We hope that everyone enjoyed this mode and had the chance to earn Gigi. 

 

I personally wish he would say GuhguhguhGOooooooaaaaalllllllll when I ammo rack someone, or more accurately when I get ammo racked.

Any Game that averages out to 10 games per participant is a flop... Sorry but there wasn't enough new contant to make it exciting or worthwhile playing.. You guys had 4 years and this is all you could come up with ?

Thank goodness it's over...I didn't enjoy playing the mode; it was so frustrating that I gave up trying to earn the crewmember. I'll be glad for the regular garage to be back.

I'm just hoping for a less gaudy garage.  Maximum bloom is so 2006.

I didn't even make the effort because I can't stand soccer.

I loved the "Rocket League" World of Tanks mode (but I must say that I preferred the old version, with 3 T-62A Sport on each team - it was more frantic).
Thanks (again) for the mode, WG!!!

I know some of other players didn't like it, but some (like myself) loved it. :medal:
If we have a larger player base, this mode could be permanent (IMHO).

The main question is... What's the next special mode that you're preparing for us?
I know... I know... The thread is about the soccer mode... But you knew somebody would ask about! : D

Other than too many afk's, I loved the soccer mode and was able to scoop up lots of rewards. Is there an expiration date of when I have to recruit Gigi by?

I actually liked it better that the last soccer mode, though I don't recall it very well. Also I cant ever watch a replay from a previous patch, so I cant qualify exactly how.  So I have a question.  How long do we have to place Buffon in a tank?

Howdy as well,

 

thank you for the soccer mode. Just one thing I'd like to request: Could our Buffons appear in the particular national uniform we assign him to? Pretty please with icing and a cherry on top, because it is very lame having him sit there in his soccer dress instead of being in Soviet or German, Italian or French, etc uniform.

 

Many thanks in advance.

Not only was that the longest game mode EVER, I think it was a failure.  Of 318,213 players, the average battles fought was about 10.  The average match was 6 minutes, which mean the average player that played that mode invested less than one hour in the mode.  Of the 318k that played at least one battle, only 9,800 people got the grand prize.  

 

On the plus side, it means that the NA server has at least 318,000 players.

If you haven't recruited him by now then he may not be able to be recruited anymore.

Sadly no. Your other crew members will have to take orders from a dude in shin guards and running shorts.

Frontline is coming back soon.

Soccer mode was a global event, so while not so popular for our NA audience. It averaged waaaaayyyyyy more players on the world wide scale.

If you want a suggestion for the next "Fun Mode", may I suggest

HISTORICAL MODE:

all tanks have ONE hitpoint... no over target markers of any kind, no OUTLINES, no enemy tank list, no enemy tanks on minimap. 

teams all from one nation, and only PRODUCED tanks allowed.

Look I'm not going to argue that soccer isn't as popular in America as it is in Europe, but according to the numbers from their site, they averaged out at around 20 battles per player. The Russians beat us at 13. So even in the best case scenario, this mode was a flop on the whole.
