Nope. And some familiar maps will be coming back with 4.5 

 

That is a positive direction.

The Merc line sounds interesting (different may be a better word) but getting some of the old maps is what I was looking for. 

:D  Glad to make tankers happy.  You will be excited!!

sooooo...I am probably a little slow, but do we play these new merc contraptions in multiplayer as we play  all other existing tech tree tanks ? or Do they get their own game mode ? like say ranked battles...it exists alongside multiplayer..

 

Apologies if this is a dumb question..

I would like to ask, I have not yet understood, because we wanted to break the relationship of "realism" of the game (just to be clear: the Waffe is false but it is "realistic", manga tanks are false and not "realistic" at all) .. some tanks of this new line are even "real", built by US arsenals during the Second World War, others like the T29/IS/Tiger are simply an abomination ... why not and can not do better?...

 

Many thanks in advance for the reply...

As explained in the video, the tanks are built from parts of various already in-game tanks. Arguably the contracts would need to be written that way since you would need to complete the contracts using the in-game tanks that are related to the parts used for the tank.

 

The realism aspect (however much there is) is still there in game in other tanks - this is just an extension of the game in a new direction.

 

I tested these tanks and I can tell you that these are not in any way different from the multitude of the premium tanks that are already in-game which already come in in all shape,  sizes and colors - the bright red dragon and the gold emblazoned panther, right?. Except these are not premium tanks but rather a new tank line in itself.

I tried asking this question a couple times yesterday, pretty sure I already know the answer. Will stages to the contracts be able to be purchased with gold or silver, if gold, how much will it cost on average to purchase out a contract level. How much will it cost to purchase the entire contract.

 

View PostMASHMAN 90, on 08 June 2018 - 11:22 AM, said:

 

I have no idea, i assume it's Gold only but Stage 5 would cost more than Stage 1 and Kill 100 Tanks would cost more than Kill 1 Tank, It doesn't affect me but i'm worried it will cost a bit.

 

Best bet is to message Raibot who could ask Jeff and maybe get a reply, if you do, let me know and i'll update :)

 

As per the video, the stages are skipped using Gold. Also in the video (the higher the stage, more cost in gold). Chuji mentions that aspect in detail in the video.

 

However, it is also mentioned that not all tanks will be available this way. Only some and which ones will be known only as the contracts are released (the contracts are not always available)

.....in fact they are completely ridiculous and "not too loved" carriages by the playerbase....I find this aspect of the news decidedly negative (and a wrong direction for the game, IMHO).

 

P.S. now I finally understand why you defend them so much ....

Do you speak for the entire “playerbase”? I’m part of the playerbase. For everyone like you, how many do you think there are like me?

Furthermore, how many do you think there are who are waiting to see? How many do you think there are who are warming to the idea? And how many do you think there are who will change their minds after launch, including maybe yourself? The forum members are after all as fickle as the day is long, don’t you think?

Mercenaries= bad idea. Realism is the best part of the game and this completely takes away from that aspect.  This release unnecessarily risks sending the entire game into the waste bin in my humble opinion.

The entire playerbase must include Forum and Reddit as well :)

 

It's okay to disagree guys but remember to keep it clean as meant to be a Q+A and I worked hard :)

Realism had never been a driving force in this game, while there certainly is a historical following the fact so many tanks in this game already are either works of fiction,what if scenarios, and alternative history prove that realism is respected but not a goal. 

 

Oh and that's all without including Mercenaries. Which are what-ifs, mixed parts, salvaged vehicles, none too different from any else in the game already.

I only defend what I say. Your statement is full of fallacy and zero facts or objectivity. 

 

Example: I could also claim why you are against them so much. See, it is easy.
