Hey, everyone! 

 

Mwahahahaha! You thought you were rid of me, didn't you?

 

Well, I had to come back for a visit so I can get your feedback over our new event, The Dark Front.

 

 

The Dark Front mode launched today, and as usual, I'd like to gather your feedback over it. If you'd like more information about the event, check out the above-linked article, the Youtube video, or our forum announcement.

 

Please reply below with your feedback, comments, suggestions, and any issues you might be having with this mode. Every little bit helps out on my report. 

 

Hope that you're all having fun collecting Souls, and we'll see you out on the spooky battlefield.

 

Have a great day! 

 

PS: I miss you all :girl:

Fun.  Quick question.  Do free xp and xp boosters stack with the mission bonus' for the Special MT25 and regular vehicles?

 

Thanks

So now my tier 8 will see more battles at tier 10 because of low population. Thks for the work around that screws everybody who would rather play randoms then little kid modes.

I just wish they would give us the option for the normal garage. I never play the special event modes, so no input there.

  It looks like your bonuses from Dark Front will add to your other multipliers (like Personal Reserves) for Credits and XP.

The MT-25 will be added to your Garage as a special vehicle when you log in after the start of the event.

Not to sure why the minimap that is always in the bottom right of my screen is only brought up by hitting a key.

My feedback:

1) Do not limit the levels to 1-per-day. That just makes this seem like a giant money-grab for an over-priced Premium account. At least if levels weren't locked, you could play / grind the bonus. This is supposed to be a fun mode, keep in mind.

2) The mode becomes pretty boring after a very short period of time. Having only one game mode, with the same objective, with the same spawn points for all the enemies, means you're just doing the same thing over and over again. Leviathan mode was a lot better, since it offered PvP, different missions, and the enemies were more interesting just by virtue of having the Leviathan to deal with at the same time.

3) 5,000 Gold for the "Ultra Premium account" is far too much. It's 18 days of 50% bonus... Premium account does the same thing, except costs only 2,500 Gold for a full 30 days. The 200% Free XP booster is not nearly enough to justify the doubled prize and limited duration.

4) The bot's behavior was really strange. Some bots had no problems hitting you at range, others would be missing you at point-blank range because they kept turning side-to-side when shooting, or turning their rears towards you where they didn't have any gun depression. The bots could be a lot more consistent.

5) Any dark matter you collected during the battle should be automatically credited at the end. There should be no reason to drive back to base at the end of the match, it should only be for saving it in case you die. If you didn't die at the end, then dark matter you have should be credited. 6 minute matches, takes 1 minute to get back at the end, all of a sudden you have situations where people with 20+ dark matter are a few seconds late to base, so the team doesn't get the bonus.

6) The daily missions are far too limited. Leviathan missions had interesting variety, not just because of the 2 game modes, but because the missions all had different objectives. Some were for blocked damage, some were for doing damage to specific targets, some were for PvP, others for the Leviathan. There were missions for the healing bonuses, missions for kills, etc. The daily missions that we have for this game mode are just to play the game, without any specific objectives.

7) The mini-map should always be displayed in the bottom-right corner of your screen. Why did we have to press Tab to view it?

 

Overall, I'm disappointed with this mode. It feels like it was rushed with the lack of game mode variety and lack of missions, and it really feels like it was just designed to encourage people to buy the overpriced "Ultra Premium account".

 

The graphics were great, and night mode maps would be really cool. But outside of that, the game mode was generally just dull & repetitive, and it became very boring, very quickly. It felt rushed and like a money-grab.

CAUTION : You may not see it depending on how you have your filters set. A few threads about this already today.

From a thread I started:

 

 Only took three battles to get to the first rank, nice bonus to go along with it. Game is kinda meh, but the rewards are good. 

 Not worth buying the top bonus which seems strange. Why would WG disincentivize this? Or are they just getting crazy with their pricing again? You can get 30 days of premium with 3200 gold for less than buying the Halloween bonus today. Sure if I won 5k gold in a tournament or through CW, then why not. But real money? No.

 What you get from playing the mode is also kinda meh. The free, free XP is nice, but the free XP that you have to convert? The only good thing about it is you could bank a bunch of convertible xp up if you ever wanted to convert it in the future without having to uncheck accelerated crew training on your other tanks.

 Overall it's ok at best, poor execution on WG part.

Hey Tankers,

 

US East is up temporarily during the Halloween event to help facilitate the creation of arenas for The Dark Front, it is not a permanent addition. Apologies for any confusion.

Check that you don't have any filters on, as YANKEE mentioned above. 

 

If you still do not see the tank, be sure to send in a ticket to our Customer Support team so they can investigate your account: Contact Customer Support

^^ This. So much of this.

 

I played a few matches, got my daily limit (why?), and I'm already bored of it.
