Attention Tankers!

 

The teaser was a little...Vague, but now we have more details!

 

On July 25, an exciting new PvE game mode Homefront will be available. Battle in teams of five to defend the Eastern or Western Front and fight off enemy armies that attack your land in increasingly powerful waves.  Like a horde mode!

 

Homefront

EVENT BEGINS: Thursday, July 25, 03:40 PT | 05:40 CT | 06:40 ET
EVENT ENDS: Tuesday, August 6, 04:00 PT | 06:00 CT | 07:00 ET

 

 

To get all the glorious details, you'll want to head to our dedicated article which is linked below:

GLHF!

As this is a separate mode, you select "Tank Divisions" which are compiled of different compositions of 3-4 tanks.  This is separate from that tanks you own.

Or German tanks, it is always the same, players are either the soviets or allies fighting the Wehrmacht, I'd like for once the chance to play an event where we can be the Axis.

Sounds pretty cool, but the "fuel" restrictions are kinda lame IMO. If we wanna play the mode, just let us play the mode.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Yes, I like this idea.

Now, the Homefront mode looks cool, I get the fuel restrictions. It forces one to play well but not reckless in order to make further progress. It would be great if players could use tanks/crews from their own garage IF they have that appropriate vehicle (as in FL mode). If WG were to implement this to Homefront, it would make nearly all of their players very happy I believe.

Also, could we get list of all vehicles to be used by division and level? Will we be able to mount equipment and use our own crews at least? Curious about that.

This, not a fan of having to grind fuel in randoms just to play the mode. 

 

Yes, please highlight what vehicles each division gets. It looks like a bunch of stock (albeit historical) tier 4-5 tanks.

"Give them nothing"  for a minute I was worried that was your new NA slogan.  :trollface:

I don't like all of the tier restrictions that accompany game modes like this.

This isn't a PvE mode even if they want to call it that. This is just another battle against bots event like they've done in the past for Halloween.

So I get that folks want to use their own vehicles for Homefront, but given how the gamemode works, honestly it wouldn't make sense and would bar some players from participating if they don't have the right vehicles in their garage.


We playtested it a few weeks ago and it's genuinely a lot of fun. I think it's definitely more fun than Dark Runners.You can pick from different loadouts, each of which comes with 3 vehicles that you have at your disposal, as well as active abilities that are unique to each loadout. There is a respawn mechanic, and you pick your next vehicle (out of those available in your loadout) from those that haven't been destroyed yet. (Essentially you've got 3 lives)


This way, even if you're a new player, or you don't have any tanks left in that tier because you're working on a grind, you'll still be able to play without spending all your Credits on rental tankscoughfrontlinecough

"Give them nothing!"  Is that the mantra for the marketing department?

 

Mode looks interesting.  Will have to give that a try. :)

I'm really not liking the fuel restriction on how many times you can attempt the event. The game crashed 4 different times on me yesterday while I was playing. When that happens I'm not going to be refunded my fuel right? If you need this kind of limit make it easy to grind out some more fuel so people who enjoy the mode can play it more.
