Can you remove the MT-Revenant from my garage since it's not playable anymore?

Well, I enjoyed it. Yes made plenty of XP and was concerned I would not complete the course but I did and for the first time. So all good.

Its kind of thoughtful of them to leave it for a bit to give everyone a chance to clean off any exp it accrued and convert it to Free XP.


 

That said if you would rather it not clutter up your T-II tanks then uncheck "Special Vehicles" in your filters and it will no longer be visible. :honoring:

Honestly... This game mode was far too boring. It was slow and repetitious.

 

One thing I was thinking, was that this game should not have had a timer because the time spend ending the match and starting up a new one took too long to do... Not sure what you would do otherwise though.

The timer ensures everyone has joined prior to the match beginning.

Not everyone has equal speed internet.

 

Dark Front was a very good mode for the new player IMO.

It helped develop their driving skills, gave an opportunity to see the advantage of focussed fire (if they cared enough to learn), wolfpacking (again they got to want to learn) and even a bit of target priority. You soon learned not to wake the BDRs if you didn't have full HP or were carrying 50+ farts.


 

Was it a boring?

For the seasoned player yes, it was and it was so repetitive.

It may have been better with a few different maps. haunted Neubleburg got pretty predictable after the 3rd match.

Still I earned over 200k Free XP and quite enjoyed the ever present booster effect for the duration of the event.

I bought it out to go play real tanks after the 6th day and just did the 5 matches for the 75k and the weeklies after that.


 

While it wasn't as good as some previous event modes it wasn't a total turd and I really believe it could have benefitted a new arrival.

With the 75k each day and the weeklies a new player could earn over 1 million credits, even without the booster effects in randoms.

In case you've forgotten it was a pretty daunting thing to earn your first million.

The 40k Free XP from the weeklies would help the new player get to T-IV or V quite easy too.


 


 

If you hated it then I suppose the best thing for you was it wasn't mandatory. :honoring:

After the fact...

 

I really enjoyed Dark Front!

 

It was casual. That was a big deal for me. Typical WoT gameplay is high-skill, high-intensity. One wrong step and it's probably over. That's all well and good, but I welcomed a more arcadey take on the game. Best of all, it didn't last forever. It lasted long enough for me to have fun with it, but not so long that it got old. I'd definitely like to see more seasonal events like this one - accessible and casual.

 

Also, I would have liked to see more permanent rewards. The boosters were nice, but unless you spent a TON of time in the gamemode, you didn't get to take anything lasting away from it. Would have been nice to get an emblem at each level, for example.

Did not enjoy this mode after the second battle playing it. There was potential. Seems that there wasn't too much effort put into making it.

"WG, can you answer this question? "

 

What experience? No crew. There was no exp ever given so why are you asking for it to be transferred? It was just a Halloween event that gave you boosts to exp and credits gained played in other modes during the event. Please go to school and learn something worthwhile like critical thinking skills. These type of questions make me think you're an animated plant.

This might be late, but YES, there was XP earned on the MT Revenant, it would show you how much XP you got after each battle, you can go to the XP conversion menu and see the MT-Revenant.

Also, while I'm here, good job Wargaming, I enjoyed the mode, it started to get boring at first by myself but when I started platooning and or following others around it was fun, instead of the normal hide in a bush or behind a building and poke out sometimes, it would be 3-4 tanks all rushing a few enemies with shells flying everywhere and explosions, The closest thing to what you see in the trailers that I have had ingame,

If you never converted it, its still there.

My alt's Revenant still showed a load of Convertible XP on that account's Revenant this morning, when I logged onto it and claimed the Reward.

As my alt is a FTP account I have nowhere near the gold to convert any of it, but it is still there.

 

Next equipment sale, some binos and a net or 2 on that account thanks to the Reward. :great:

Yeah it can be, watching the BDR's HP drop to 0 in a matter of seconds from when it spawned is a thing of beauty.

Yeah, I have 40,600 on my Revenant, sucks that it won't really help me, don't want to spend gold. . .

 

Although with this Event Calendar and being able to purchase the tanks with gold, I doubt I'll have gold much longer. . .

I was waiting for an XP conversion sales discount, now the Revenant is gone.

Did I just lose all the XP?
