I saw two bounty tanks the whole event. Both times 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! :)

I definitely had a few players ride shotgun with me and do the same thing, especially if I was aggressively playing a brawling Heavy.  The only time I really rolled my eyes at some players was occasionally if I took Artillery then I would have more “guards” than you’d usually expect from base campers.

 

I don’t see a problem with a Contributor(or Supertester in my case) special Camo.  If WG were to make special Camo for CC/ST then they’ll probably also start making special Camos for everyone else to earn/buy/win and would negate the beacon-like attention by making a odd Camo more normal.  There’s certainly been talk of adding more special event Camos and such now that the Twitch Prime Camo was so popular.

I must have played at the wrong time because I didn't see one.

Never saw any this time. Back when it was first done I spotted three or four.

I played at least 80 games and never saw a single bounty tank at tier eight and below.

 

Once I heard how irrelevant the rewards were I stopped caring that I wasn’t seeing any.

 

I recommend that the bounty system include a “tag” system.  Once you kill a bounty tank the next game you play you will be a bounty tank and keep that status until you are killed by another player.

I like the idea of random bounties. "Crikey! I'm a bounty!"

I saw like 1 contributor on during that event, so it wasn’t a big deal really. I do however get super excited whenever I see a name I recognize from the forums on the battle list. I played a few games with Beckett...it’s funny seeing how we do on the field and away from the keyboard.

Had one in every game I played.

It was quite the experience.

 

I see what you did there.:D But I only saw 1 bounty in all the games that I played.

P.S. I did like the fact that it told you right at the start of the game that a bounty tank was in game.

The bounty that I did see I managed to get him spotted and one shot into before our light tank yolo'd died because because the bounty had back up. :facepalm: Needless to say I did not kill the bounty, but we won the game.

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.

 

Same, didn't even know the bounty event was on until after it had ended.

Never get to see them because I’m on PS4 .

PS4 has nothing to do with it.  Sure, there were a larger number of Xbox Bounties, but they are all regular players and our status as Bounties doesn’t change the random chance of being placed in the same queue.  I see you in matches on PS4 all the time, it just didn’t happen on the Bounty weekend. I actually saw three other Bounties(all different players) while I was playing last weekend.

 

Apart from making some type of “Infection Mode” there aren’t many ways to increase Bounty appearance frequency.  An Infection Mode might also NOT sit well with some players who may not wish to become a special target(remember, not everyone bothers to learn about in game events).  That would be an awfully rude surprise for someone. 

 

However, I believe I’ve heard RaiBOT01 mention considerations for broader community signups in future Bounty events.  They’d certainly get plenty of volunteers!  If you capped it to maybe 200 Bounties per Console you’d have a good pool that would let more players have a shot at one without oversaturating the queue.

I saw only one (PS4) but my team got slaughtered quickly so didn't have the chance to shoot at him.

 

  1. CC's should show the name of all that killed them during the event in their next video. 
  2. CC's should wear a T-shirt with the names of those that killed them on the back with the title "I was killed by [tag name] in World of Tanks" 
  3. WG should give Retro Jules a PlayStation so in the next event I can teach him how to drive if he's in my team or so I can kill him if he's in the red team.

I always had one on my team, but never managed to have one on the Red team. 

 

It was a lot of fun defending/platooning with a tanker with a bounty on him. I think they should expand on the idea and have more players/bounties up for grabs. They can also give awards to those who have the bounties and are able to stay alive repeatedly.
