Tankers,

Steel Hunter is back for its final stage on Monday, November 16th!

For this final iteration, the dual-gun configurations on the Arlequin and Varyag have been modestly buffed to increase their DPM. Additionally, an issue was fixed that was causing spotted enemies to sometimes disappear from the minimap after using radar.

This final stage of Steel Hunter will last until Monday, November 23rd.

After its conclusion, the Grand Expedition will remain active until December 3rd, at which point your unused Expedition Tokens will be converted at the rate of 250 Bonds per token. If you want to earn one of the Grand Expedition vehicles, make sure you redeem your tokens by then.

Check out the article on our news portal for more info, and details about the available rewards.

Isn't the new 2D style reward for Level 15 supposed to be the Sword of Devana and not the Sword of Anhur? I would hate to have 2 of the Sword of Anhur styles while not having the Aword of Devana.

"One of your favourite game modes returns Monday, Nov. 16"

Does anyone actually play this mode for enjoyment? Very rarely have I come across something that makes me want to punt my keyboard through the monitor as much as this mode does.. :/

I'm not a good player, but even I kind of enjoy it. It is literally the only mode with absolutely no P2W aspect during the battle. Everyone starts with a fixed amount of gold rounds (which do less damage), no bond equipment, no 8 skill crew, no premium tanks that outclass their tech tree counterparts. I imagine more competitive players would enjoy it even more.

Nah, steel rigger/cheater needs to be eliminated and replaced with Frontlines.  Much better mode.

I was having to pay cost on repairs for the battles is that intended now? Because honestly 20k to repair means you need to top 5 finish just to make some credits, not worth it if you didnt play in the previous ones like myself..

I really hope that they don't bring back Steel Hunter. I really hate Steel Hunter with a passion!

and why do you ask do I play it and why do I hate it? I play it for the bonds not for the enjoyment. I hate it because it is not a team event. I tried a steel hunter platoon and there are not enough platoons in queue to go into battle. And there are less than 50 people in the queue for the solo mode. It takes almost 2 mins before you get put in a battle and then it takes 45 seconds to load in. Only the top 5 get points and you lose credits if you are not in the top 5 unless you level up. At the end of the day, the fact that there are not enough steel hunter platoons available and less than 50 people in the solo queue obviously shows that the majority of people dont like steel hunter despite wargaming and their youtubers trying to market this as their favourite mode. Last but not least, when you didnt give players an opportunity to catch up on missed tokens (to get the reward tanks), you obviously lost a lot of people again.
