Played my 5 races this morning, lost all 5, 4 of them by capping. Still early, but if you have just one potato on your team, your odds of winning plummet. In 3 of the matches my teammates didn't get to the final area at all. I'm getting points for damage but that's it. 

 

And can you jump into other track early? Or only towards the point where the tracks merge? 

 

Damage during the race actually doesn't seem to matter much and there is no cap pause if both teams are in the cap. Cap points keep running until reset.

if you get three tanks into cap first it's almost a certain and quick victory. That being said, you don't get any extra points for damage etc so it's kinda like Frontlines and will be a farming mode lol

Tried. There's an 'invisible' wall that bounces you back onto your own track.

Actually, there's at least 2 'trophies' that you can earn by doing damage.

One for doing at least 500 damage (gives 5 RP).

The other is for doing at least 1000. But, that one also requires you to win (gives 10 RP).

 

Plus, there's one that requires you to damage all three enemy tanks (gives 10 RP). So, sometimes, it pays to wait for all the enemy tanks to make it there.

I wasn't clear sorry. What I meant is that if you cap out early you likely won't get the bonuses. I wish there was a reward for killing all three enemies.

I have played in 15 solo races so far, won some and lost some. I am really enjoying the new mode so far. I am looking forward to platooning with my friends and see how well we can do. Go Turtles
