So tell me if I am wrong

 

1. Bad rewards

2. Can lose any progress towards rank that you earn - stalemate progress

3. paltry tickets and some credits and that's about it.

4. Zero crew training

5. Zero progress grinding tanks

 

So why would anyone play this again? A few tickets and some credits and nothing else? What am I missing. I see zero reason to play this at all. 

 

(edit to add)

 

So I was missing something. I was missing the rank rewards. Here they are. Apparently, the reason to play this is mostly for bonds and possibly some camos. So yeah, bonds.

I would assume that people might play this game mode for fun.  I'll give it a try, but do not expect that it will be my sort of game.

It's more of a time waster than even this game is.  I certainly wont be playing this mode.  It's not hard to see the War Gaming has already screwed it up and I can already see the numerous complaint threads that will soon bloom in the forums.

I knew this was going to be the replacement for the ranked battle mode.

Have you ever heard of playing for just you know fun.  Remember fun, it is what we all used to have back in the day.  Main reason to play the mode.  Its already you vs everyone else in regular battles at least now you can shoot the other people.  but really 4850 bonds is nothing to sneeze at, some unique camos, some credits.  Looks like it will be a fun mode to play.  One thing is I dont like the chevron thing, losing progress sucks would rather it just be an exp grind like frontline.  Still think it will be fun though.

Its not.

 

 

And to the OP if you don't want to play the mode then don't. This is like the post you made saying how terrible Frontline was after ONE BATTLE. Now you don't even want to play a battle before complaining?

LOL I tried to play another front line battle and guess what, everyone got booted and only half the players on our side bothered to return. As well, the game kept lagging out. How frustrating is it going to be in SOLO mode when you get dropped or lag out? Yeah, it's going to suck. However, now when the mode buggs up and boots you, lagg kills you, etc, now you risk losing your rank and progress because of factors outside of your control. Do you honestly think this mode is not going to be all bugged up with all these new mechanics testing? Right. I don't need bonds that much, hell I've never spent any that I ever got anyway.

The new map for the Steel Hunter game mode is 2000 meters x 2000 meters...  

 

Big flyby of the new “Zone 404” (English: Dreamland) map for the Steel Hunter mode 

 

"This is a new, FULLY snowy, city map. The map is complex, reminiscent of Stalingrad and old Kharkov. Of course, there are many objects from the old maps. 
On the map “Zone 404” there is a little snow, haze and it is very dark, which is not very good (to the question about night battles, yes). There are no bases and flags on the map, because you randomly respawn at N points and begin to survive solo or in a platoon. 
You can also listen to military music from this location.

Easter eggs have not yet been searched."

I am sure several players will like this mode. It will let the good players figure out just who is the best player on the NA server I guess. With me having bad reaction time from my strokes, I won't bother playing this mode. No reason for me to play and just be an easy kill for someone.

So far, it isn't. If it were, it would have the ranked battles reward tank as a reward.

I´ll play that mode a few times but later ill keep grinding my tvp or playing tier X, reaching the level 25 requires a net result of 73 chevrons but an average position (6-15) in each game gives you 0.4 chevrons, so grinding this mode will need in average 183 games with a temporary tank and crew. But bonds wise is better to play this mode since it gives 27.32 bonds per game.

I think this game mode brings a lot of interesting new things and I for one am excited to try it. To me WG trying new modes is never a bad thing since it adds a little diversity to the game.

This looks easy enough to consistently pull chevrons in a match and rank up.  Decent rewards, a game mode that looks interesting, and a new set of mechanics to learn.   Especially the cone of vision, that'll take some getting used to.
