Is it fair to ask WG to fix situations when you roll over, don't die, and end up being useless the rest of the game? I've had some meh roll overs, and had to stay there with either a quitting game penalty or just waiting for the game to end. Having players help you is like < 50/50 chance IMO. Maybe a TBD seconds-situation where you roll over and get put back into the battle? I think this is an easy fix.

 

While I'm on a roll with my green dragon suggestions, I also think preventing arty from drowning is a feature that needs adding. Let them go into the water and stay there taking a bath while they are spotted until the end of the game with no shooting until the end of the game. If they get out, then they are back into the battle.  

 

Can't wait for the Chiefs vs. Buccaneers/Packers  Super Bowl.

 

God bless...Shoot Well....May RNG Gods Bless You

Any drowning should reward the closest tank with that tanks leftover HP on the drown.

WG should put a "self-righting" feature on the Repair Kits. This way, if a player accidentally turns on their side, or worse all the way over to their top, they can "self-right" for the cost of a Repair Kit.

 

 

Plus, it might "accidentally" trigger some of those "auto-use" Repair Kit "cheats" that might still be out there. That will teach them. Their tank starts to tilt a little too much and BAM!, used a Repair Kit.

No, I dont want arcade tank flipping, if I did id go back to playing facebook tanks

all they should do is make a warning arrow show flipped teammates and flipping a teammate over should reward some sort of bonus

Put 20 sec or 30 sec clock on it and then blows like when you turn upside down. 30 seconds should be enough time for someone to help and if not you can go to next battle without waiting. Repair kit sounds good too. I don't turn over but a few times a year now unless its a wheelie and it almost always rights itself. A few years ago I had problems with Jumbo brushing a wall and it climbed on i TD s side regularily. I learned to keep a small distance from objects when on the move.lol

I see JUST as many NON-ARTY tanks drowning themselves.  So, please stop singleing out arty.  Thanks.

 

And I agree that an auto-righting system for flipped tanks sure would be nice ... sometimes you flip and spend the entire time wondering how the heck you flipped over in the first place!  And with the penalty associated with trying and failing to right an inverted teammate makes a lot of people NOT want to even try.

I'd combine some of the suggestions - after 30 seconds on your side or turtled you can use the repair kit to flip back over, since it should clearly take longer to attach magic cables than to magically mend tracks or transmissions.  :teethhappy:

 

I'm seeing a few more flipped lately, though I haven't flipped me own self for some time.  Did, however, recently wedge my Jumbo (IIRC) into those rocks on the southwest corner of Mines, by the bay, trying to come down off the cliff instead of around the corner.

 

Yes, I was ....

Tanks shouldn't be crawling anywhere they want to on the map, I'm glad they added physics.

You don't get penalized for leaving a game when you're flipped.
