I immediately feel like this will be cool, people will enjoy it...then WG will remove it for 6month to a year, then bring it back with doubled xp reqs for whatever and then you guys will try to sell boosters.  

 

WG can't seem to create a fun mode and leave it fun.  WG always seem to find a way to fleece its customers lately so forgive my extreme skepticism.  Sadly WG haven't done anything lately to help me believe they won't try to nickel and dime us over this eventually.

I'm looking forwards to this event.  I have one platoon partner who I'm well in sync with, though we'll need a third to fill out the ranks.

Random battles already feel like 1 vs 29, now they made it official with a battle royale mode...  :)

They didn't double it. It went from 18930 to 30500, that's about a 60% increase. With the boosters now all you have to do is earn 15250 to prestige, making it easier than the previous iteration.

 

You don't need to buy the boosters, ten is way more than enough to earn a prestige. I used 5 to earn one prestige. If you use all of them then that is about ~12 hours of gameplay or ~60 games, that means you need to average 254.2 points (since the boosters double that) per game so it can be done with 32 Lieutenants and 28 Sergeants. Even a bad player can do a prestige with ten.

  Am I being cynical to ask if WG will be trying to sell us booster packs to make these special tanks halfway playable ?

I can almost guarantee it.  

 

I'd not be surprised if that crappy fuel currency makes a second appearance

You get your choice of "Helluva Noob" crew skins or (manual) fire extinguishers

If you need 10 1-hour boosters to get a single prestige that's pretty awful. You need to prestige TEN TIMES, FYI.

Looks like they made it so it favors using lights

Another worthless mode for the kool-aide drinkers club.  Why can't they fix the game instead of this?  Oh, cause it's boring and they would lose their player base.

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't this a solo event you against everyone else? You take the items an I thought kill anyone else in the match ( maybe wrong about the second part)? BUT of that's the cause I think the above would be the way to exploit the event would it not? Platoons can you even do that in this event?

That's what I mean, even a trash player can do it without needing to buy reserves. There are ten episodes and ten prestige levels so if someone does one prestige an episode they get everything.
