Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

Coming to your tanks soon is a honking feature to relive your days on the road stuck in traffic but on a tank. 

 

This fun starts 18May and runs until 15Jun and is completely optional. It will be turned on by default, however, if you choose to disable it then you will not be able to hear or participate in all the HONKING!

 

Three different honks will be made available depending on the mass of the tank. 

 

For more information on why and what the horn, including how to shut it off click HERE

 

In addition to the horn, there will also be a new set of missions to complete. This means more chances to earn coins and golden keys for the coveted T30 3D skin. 

 

More information on these missions can be found by clicking HERE.

 

Good luck Pawtna!

You discussed this about 7-8 years ago and NOBODY wanted it. Why bring it up now???

 

Please make this OFF by default.

it'll be the very first thing I turn off, assuming I play anything other than FL during the event.

 

that being said, if you also look at the missions, in as much as WG staff themselves loathe blocking missions, sure enough there's various levels of blocking missions included, so on top of the folks desperately trying to complete chimera/279e and even still 55a/260 missions some folks will be out there trying to bait blocking damage instead of trying to win...

I agree with this!   Plus they aren't obnoxiously loud to other players so no trolling fun.  :)

Great way to trigger those with low or zero emotional endurance and to troll botters so this will be good fun lol. I wonder if those who like ramming things are going to make use of it or not?

When will you bring back down votes on forums, so we can down vote these events like in old times? Down votes dont have to stay, just bring them back as part of event for a brief period of time. 

BTW who remembers when WG had -xx rep?

I pity the Admin that has to announce this in a positive way as it is something great as part of the 10 year anniversary.

 

Personally, I would have posted it on an anonymous alt account :trollface:

Okay, so I get bringing back the feature just for laughs, but why the hell aren't tiny tanks given bicycle bells, the mediums given car horns, and the big bois given ocean liner horns?

Why do they all sound like the same 1920's jalopy from different distances?

Even the Developers didn't want it, but it is around for a limited time for some fun. 

And no.

What do you mean? They play at different octaves, have a 200m range, and reload after 3 honks.

Horns are the highlight for a week to celebrate a 10th year anniversary of a tank game? Kinda gives the impression they are grasping at straws...

Well it's working, I got strung out for another month wondering what the act is going to be and it's horns. It's literally just horns. Nothing at all even remotely interesting. This is a new low for WG.
