Having qualified for team USSR, I think I will run the KV-5, Fatherland, Glory IS-5 and Defender constantly this weekend--in that rotation. I need to take advantage of that qualifying bonus. 

 

Speaking of the National Bonuses (which I have been making good use of - got Team USSR!), I noticed tonight that the Op In-game says 5 Days left. Which has it ending next Tuesday - whereas everything else says it goes through Feb 4th and the end of TankBowl. 

 

Anyone hear ear anything about that bit of inconsistency?

This may be have been answered before but which dual nation crew tanks can you use in this competition ?

 

I note their are a few dual crew tanks amongst the Russian and American tanks ie The captured King tiger, the Panther M10, the champion,  the t34 88...

 

I played my Champion M10/Panther from last year and did not receive any bonus's despite the crew being US...

 

Any ideas ??

 

Go only by the flag displayed in the garage slot for that tank, or use your garage filters to select the nation you picked. In garage on xbox press Up and select either USA or USSR Flag icon. Then it will hide the tanks of the other nations until you clear the filter, so.there can be no confusion. 

 

The crew you use doesn't matter. I picked USSR and can run the T-34-88, even with a German crew, because the tank nation is Russian. It has the USSR flag hung in the garage above it. If you picked USA, just don't run the French AMX Chaffee. So last year's Champion Panther is German even though you can put an American crew in it, so it won't count.

 

In fact, any capitalist scum that picked USA should run only the AMX Chaffee and Champion to help out their Russian comrades!  :trollface:

I noticed this too. I thought the bonuses carried on right through the tankbowl event. I actually checked the news again this morning to make sure that Tankbowl wasn't this weekend. 

WG - can we get the team ops extended?

My thoughts: Since the national bonuses are tied to the qualifier op, they will end when the qualifier ends. Then, when Tankbowl itself starts, a new op will begin that's the same as this one but with a different name, if that. Just the limitations of programming, I guess.

Be verbose - you have a vocabulary for a reason.

 

Good with words; bad with tanks. At least I can talk you to death.

Still nothing official from the good people at WG about it. Current Op closes out just ahead of TankBowl. You are most likely correct that a new version of it will pop up for the event, but it would be nice to have that confirmed.

Starting a quarter at 7pm eastern on a work/school night? What is wrong with you guys? My whole family has to be up in the morning. At best we each got a couple of hours this evening. As a polite suggestion. Please replace your promotions manager. They are certainly not a chess player. You keep doing this to yourselves. My sons won't spend money on the game since the fatherland debacle. Now this. 

I played a bit tonight and about half the time a russian tank on my team would ram me while I'm shooting or run me into fire. This is not fun. I will try again this Friday but I don't know about the other three players in my family. Fix this! We talk more in game chat than we ever did when they lived at home.

I knew this UTC launch was messed up.   logged in late yesterday, and behold, tankbowl started.   I was able to get almost 3 completions, but man this timing thing is so damned confusing.

Funny your win8 is under 800.. nobody must ram you.. you play wrong ^^

 

And the win goes to rusha :great:  in the night the battles are full of Udssr Tanks.. no USA Tanks :D gg wg good event..

 

The last Tankbowl was very good with all nations and premliminary round! This Tankbowl is a joke for all players how love the german or british tanks etc.. there are so many nations in the game and you tell the people who is in the final.. this event has no competition!

Played two matches in my M4 this morning before work. Was middle tier on both matches. Doable.  I'm in Alaska, so either a little behind or ahead of start/end times depending on when I can get on during the work week. I noticed the in-game mad dash for damage taking place also, players blocking shots, nudging teammates out of position, pushing teammates into fields of fire, a general ball hog mentality. Since points are earned for being one of the top XP earners on a team, regardless of outcome, it's each player out for themselves, ball hogging. Then there's the MM. I can manage being bottom tier 1/3 of the time in my M4. But in my tier six Sherman's, I notice a trend of being bottom tier 75% of the time because of the large number of tier eights in play. A significant reduction on my chances of having an impact, or enjoyable matches.
