A new mode is on the horizon.  Join forces with 4 other tankers to stop the opposing forces from breaking through!

Thanks for the most cryptic, least informative video I've seen all year.

 

I have learned nothing, and frankly I now probably know less than I did before those 15 seconds of trailer.

Working at WG must be so nice.

The bar for acceptable content is so low I feel like you could goof off all day and then throw something together in the last 30 minutes of the day.

Is this our replacement for ranked?

 

Or is that still coming soontm?

 

Hope this has better mechanics, ai, and rewards than the halloween event.

So...  what are the rewards?  What tiers are we playing?  Against how many AI?  What are the mission objectives?  Is it a permanent game mode, or a timed grindfest to offset the timed grindfest of front lines?

Would you say that you are now curious about this gamemode? If so, at the very least it served its purpose as a teaser.

I playtested this gamemode a few weeks ago with some colleagues and I can honestly say I'm genuinely looking forward to it. In my opinion, it's a lot of fun. I hope that most of you will be pleasantly surprised.

TBH looking at the video it doesn't look like the production cost was particularly huge. Mostly some stills with a few moving layers superimposed over them. But it definitely doesn't do the greatest job of conveying actual information about the event, which I do agree is a bit puzzling, considering it starts soon.

I think there will be another, more detailed video coming out in the coming days that should have all the specifics.

Yeah i think so, this might be the way for us to get the Ranked battles Tier IX tank, uh, what's it called....

Kampfpanzer 50T, German medium.

I would not use that word to describe my feelings. More of annoyance then anything. Most of us are grown men and not donkeys that need carrots dangling in front of us. We are fing addicted to this game and most will play any stupid crap gamemode that WG puts in the game. Give us good information and GTFO with this half [edited][edited].

I would suggest you then act more like a grown man than a donkey... exhibiting some patience and a bit of restraint.
