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.

I dont get your math.  I get about 3 games per booster, or 30 games for 10 boosters.  That's just over 1k per battle I need to average.  Accounting for the booster, I need to average 500 from rank, and have the booster kick in the other 500.  Which means I need to average just under "captain" to prestige on 10 boosters.

wargaming's community reps are trying to continually (and fighting up hill) develop and foster a community.  a community makes people want to play together, and overcome challenges, etc.  no joke, a lot of us feel that random solo public battles are already 1 vs 29.  we've all seen the guys that afk for literally tens of thousands of battles on the redline.  they average 1 shot of damage per game over the life time of their account at best.  they fail their way to upper tiers, riding on the win bonus of those that do nearly herculean efforts to carry their dead weight.  and we're supposed to just grin and bear it and feel all communal.

 

and now, you bring out a game mode that is, as mentioned, battle royale.  pubg/fortenight and every other goofy game that was last year's latest flavor. that is intrinsically selfish/solo.  or, forcing people to platoon just to keep their sanity.  inherently a lot of us will hate the very notion of this game mode.  However, due to possible rewards being offered will probably pretty much be forced to play if the rewards are sufficient to put us at a competitive disadvantage later on by not playing it (bonds?, improved equipment?)

 

I already skipped your PvE mode, in large part because I LOATHE the stupid tiny maps it featured...

 

I enjoyed the novelty of chaffee races.  - the forums, and even your NA streams have folks asking when it's coming back 

I enjoyed the novelty, and then unheard rewards of 8bit tanks (those crews before lady crews came out were wow) - the forums, and even your NA streams have folks asking when it's coming back

I even enjoyed the novelty of karl. - the forums, and even your NA streams have folks asking when it's coming back

 

soccer.  meh.  especially due to the number of folks that would queue up go afk, or grief - not sure I've ever seen anyone overwhelming state here on the english forums that they were a huge fan of it, or when is it coming back.  commander soccerstudwhat'shisname was a cool reward, but oooof it was painful given the issues with the players

8ball lunar lava ball or whatever it was called?  not fun. - same here, never heard or seen anyone waxing nostalgic about it.

 

I'm honestly not sure if I will give this PubGinTanksMode a try or not.  It may prove a better use of my time working 279e missions...

 

 

 

This by far the best and most accurate post on the current status of this game i have seen in over a year!

After 6 games and back to where I started it's not worth it for the camo.  I'll pass.

the shell limitation kills it for me bouncing and missing a shot which is usually 50% of the time limits you to 4 max shots

and then your helpless until you find some random ammo drop which is truly random I'm done with this mode after 2 battle its dead to me

GG WG for making a absolutely no fun game mode

Yeah I played it once. Its a mild interest, like all their events.

I can make more creds playing my tier 6 mediums on premium time.
Don't know what it is, maybe Im just good? But I swear every (good) match my VC Firefly is making like 150k credits.
That's on prem time and booster of course. But hey, the effort is a lot more fun than these game mods, and I make free exp to use twords the REAL tech tree tanks lol.

Ha what sort of bull crap is this? You don't give us new ranked battles, and then give us a game mode IDENTICAL to how old ranked battles was bad and not given as a substitute.

A Dozen battles in Steel Hunter and I'm already sick of it.  Funny how a tanker can fully Mod his tank in the 1st 3 min of battle and 1 shot every other tank.  Yep once again No hacks in WoT!

Rumor is the reward for this event is the E75 TS.

 

Nice, i hope so cause a tank would definitely get me to play this mode, but i find it odd we still don't know how we'll be able to get the Tier IX Ranked battles reward tank.

Looks like this is our ranked replacement.

 

Looks fun, it really does.  I just have 0 faith in WG to not find a way to fleece us, or the ones still willing to be fleeced anyway.  Hope I'm wrong.

 

I don't think this is the Ranked replacement otherwise Kampfpanzer 50T would be the main reward, unless....the tank will be in the Bond shop and that's what all the bonds are for?

Great mode you're fodder unless you toon.  One more reason to not renew premium time and to cease spending money on gold or tanks.

Took all the way until my 2nd game to face two people in what was supposed to be solo queue teaming. Great to see people already rigging and likely nothing will be done about it like T-22 Rig gate all over again.
