Good day to you my friends.

Did you manage to spot any Bounty Tanks last weekend? Were you hoping to spot a Bounty Tank or were you not really bothered?

I enjoyed the event and it was nice to roll out and visually be recognised out on the battlefield. Some great messages came through while I played and the red camo certainly caught peoples attention as their dirty cannons were having a right old sniff around my tank!!

As a CC I would quite like a unique camo pattern so players can visibly notice a different camo style and associate it with the Contributors, and of course CC's would also have the option to not use it if they wanted to keep a lower profile. As for the glowing icon?.....that would not be a good idea all the time as it certainly attracted a lot of attention.  And i died a lot.......(yeah more than normal)(which is saying something) :teethhappy:

But how was it for you?

Did you enjoy seeing the bounty tanks?

Do you like seeing the contributors on the battlefield?

Did you think the prize for killing them was a bit weak?

What would you have liked as a prize for killing a Bounty? Special emblem ' Bounty hunter' or a mark on your cannon every time you kill a contributor?

I just wondered what you guys thought of the event.

And just in case you didn't get to see a bounty a tank......I made a little video of it from my perspective

Have a good weekend

Retro :amazed:

Nice event, but bounties were rare sight, so I think rewards should get buffed to let's say 500k silver (1 mil would be nice too). It's not like you get to kill a ton of bounty tanks, you're lucky to even see one during the event.

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

Yes, just wish there were more. Only saw S. Fett last week. Played most evenings this past weekend. I love the concept,  but the opportunity to play with, and/or against CC's was not as accessible as intended.

Disagree with 500k or even 1 Million Silver (i did post about 100,000 which is still 5 times the amount of a Premium Consumable, 200,000 at the very Maximum i would go) as the Bounties could just Yolo All Day and give the Community lots of Silver, Not saying they would do that but eliminate the possibility. I would also add Respectful and well known Members of the Community as Bounties if they wish. People like Speedster202, Just Anomaly etc for example.

 

On Sunday though, i played at Tier 2 to allow players to find me easier (and if new guys got me, it helps them too). I also got into Aisle4cleanup's game twice when he was doing countdowns (if not i met a couple in chat every game).


i generally post more News on Twitter these days but "may" post on Forum from time to time on my Future Vehicles Thread

Honestly, I rarely notice. Didn't see any bounty tanks.

Though I did see you in a game the other day. In your bat chat I think.

Had a number of bounties on my team, though never Joco3000. The two times the Reds had a bounty, we were completely rolled. Didn't even get a chance to hunt for Gallant Prime... was too busy runnin' for mah life. :teethhappy:

I saw one, but he was on my team. I really don't care what the bounty is, or even if there's one at all. It was a fun idea, and I hope they do it again, bounty or no bounty.

The event was good but there should be far more bounties to a level of at least 2 in every battle in general (1 for the reds and 1 for the greens) and maybe more in some battles.

I'd like to see more bounties. Perhaps make it random so in every 3 games in all tiers the matchmaker creates, it makes someone a bounty. Keep community contributors bounties too that they could perhaps turn on and off and make it a permanent fixture. I'd love to have a couple games as a bounty.

 

Edit: I only saw 2 through the event. I liked the concept and think it would be a good thing to keep to spice up the games

Didn't even know the event was on. Least the contributors enjoyed themselves.

As discussed in previous posts, it was a fun event but it's good it didn't last very long.

Players' behavior was significantly affected by the presence of a bounty regardless of the side they were on. Unfortunately, gameplay was kind of ruined by that and nearly every battle that had a bounty in it was a circus on tracks.

My worry is that special CC camouflage would welcome similar behaviors and that wouldn't benefit anyone, including the CC's themselves.

Cool idea, but I don't think the player base is mature enough to embrace it. So, I am against it.

I agree about the prizes being lacking. I was fortunate to kill one of you guys, and I think a 'Bounty Killer' emblem would have been great to add to the tank I used, or even a variation of the gun marks. So more bragging rights reward rather than silver would be a good idea in future I think,

never notice a single bounty when I was playing.    and I'm fine with that.  

Only want to see the CC on the green team

Not for me! I just hung out next to the CC and farmed damage while basically being ignored. It was great! :)

Was platooned up and ran into CloneGuy and SpartanElite at least 7-8 times in one night during the event.  Once you run into them, it's easy to see them game after game.
