That's a valid point. Perhaps we, non-bounties, underestimate the difficulty and unpredictability of playing as a bounty. I can see how it may be very challenging.
Still, when someone is camping at K1 all game, there is no mistaking it for simply being "passive," that's full on camping. With a bonfire, singing and horror story telling. ;)

Of course. And I'm not defending nor vouching for all the bounty players.

Just saying it's a different challenge. :)

It was a challenge trying to be presentable as a kill for the red team while also not dying to the first tank that saw you (or arty which always made you priority target) whilst still actually trying to contribute to the team and win the game. 

 

There needs to be more bounties in game next time (I never saw another one on EU), and the bonus needs to more tangible - I like the special camo idea)

It was a challenge to find one. Every time they've done something like this I've failed to see one of them.

I saw about three, and managed to kill bud7788 in his Scorpion G on EU, though I was torn between defending the base or taking him on. Turned out well as we won. His tank didn't appear in red camo, maybe because of the default camo on it? Anyways, you guys did a great job, lots of fun and threw something in the mix that I think worked really well.

The Skorpion G and a few others which have baked on camo didn't show the red camo for some reason.

The better the reward, the more unbearable it will be to drive the bounty tanks. lol

How many did you see?

 

I'll admit to self destruction on two occasions (out of 149 battles), but it wasn't intentional and I do apologize for depriving the enemy of a possible reward. :(

 

If I was made a bounty I would've denied them intentionally whenever I could, zero fox.:trollface:

Let's be real. It was a fun event and something new to look out for in WOT, but it DID AFFECT GAMEPLAY as most players were more focused on killing the bounty than anything else. Nearly every game that had a bounty on the opposing team was a loss, because all the green's were tunnel-visioned on getting that kill so much.

Also, while I don't necessarily agree with Tanksfornkthing's tone, he does have a point. Some bounties were playing below a level you would expect from seasoned players they are. Whether it was intentional or not, it did make for a rather "interesting" weekend.

 

What I meant was the bounty doesn't effect the game itself, players specially bad players, make them a priority. Its not like targeting bounties makes one win the game so to speak.

 

Also not all bounties are great players even for playing a long time, hell look at the Mighty Jingles when he used to play mainly tanks on PC, he was barely a good player even on his best days. 

 

Some of us also just have bad games, tired , or in some cases quite intoxicated lol.  I even had my power cut out a few times over the weekend.

 

Just because we are a bounty doesn't mean we have any advantages over any other player. Nor should we expect to carry a game one way or another, tis was simply a fun lil event for bonuses and nothing more.

Even with the green teams being in amazement at my tank instead of paying attention to the red team I think overall it was fun. I apologize that I didn’t get to play as much as I’d liked to help give people more chances for prizes. Got told last minute I was going to the field for the weekend but as soon as I got home Sunday I ran all evening and night. Had some good games but I seemed to catch more crap from my own team over yoloing from the reds. A few games where I got yolod a few times but my platoon mates were there to help hold it down. They just laughed that a red focused on me at full health when he was a one shot just to get the kill. I think they def approve as they were able to get easier damage where they’d normally get shot due to low health. I’ll def participate again when they do it and I’d also like to see more people somehow added just for better chances for all.

I have made more friends during this week-end, than during my entire WoT career; not that I am the most senior guy in the game, but still....

I didn’t play much this weekend, but I didn’t see any bounties. I didn’t need to see any mind you.
