nobody wants a commander mode, put your time into things that will improve the game. rather doing some pointless commander mode add personal missions or work on clan wars. you wast time on some stupid robot mode that hardly anyone played and now this, NA developers, how about doing something the people want that keep this game going and are dedicated long time players. i cant wait until you bankrupt and the russian developers take over and finally put this game on track. its getting worse and worse with your stupid idea's. join a comunity discord server and see how the people are hating on your stupid ideas.  clan wars, personal missions better ranked battels improved global map and not stupid commander mode

As a huge fan of RTS games, I really enjoyed Commander mode when it was first introduced. Controls were a bit odd not too complicated to handle. Now with the new commands, and Tankist mode it absolutely became unplayable because of the lack of balance.

When two commanders are fighting with each other, the game keeps its balance, just as before. But when you're playing as a commander but confronting real players in front of you, while you have to deal with IA to move, deploy and locate your units, this truly is unfair. Because IA can't compete with real players, especially when playing with a controller.

Secondly, changes have been made to controls, which now are really hard to deal with, because they just don't feel smooth or intuitive. gameplay needs to be redone to fit what we have in real RTS.

A to select a unit, then A again to locate or deploy this same unit afterwards. Not X.

The selection of multiple units is not fine as well.

You can only select all at once, only one or the ones in the circle (when holding the right command).

We just can't select units according to their type. Nor we can select some while using some squared or rounded interface, that we could get wider or smaller.

RB+LB for selecting all units is not fine.

LT+A would be better.

LB+A would be better to drag a square or a circle and select the units within its shape.

I think you really should have a look about what has been done to the Xbox 360 version of Command & Conquer 3, to have a better view and feeling about how things must be done because actually it's just not playable the way it is.

I like Commander. It plays fast and is fun and as no one else is depending on me, I can take risks and do what I want.

It is also better as I dont have to worry about always being the low tier tank, which is happening to me alot today.

find it to be a major fail this time around.  Over compensated too much on the bots.  They never miss, my rounds are bounce 3 or 4 times off of lights tanks [edited].  I know you had to make some changes to make it more balanced because it was too much in favor of the tankers but at this point it went to far to one side again when i am playing.

I preferred it before when we couldnt use equipment and only had standard ammo. Heavy tanks had more of a roll before and had to be flanked. Vision control has much less of a roll as well now making lights useless to take as commanders. Also seems like view ranges were capped so any tanks with good camo arent competitive either.

This makes the best strategy to take as many mediums as you can and rushing enemies the best strategy for a commander as you get more tanks.

Not only is winning as a commander harder, on top of that its too hard to make points as a commander even if you dominate you still make half the points one tanker does. (Thats if it wasnt bugged and i could actually make points as a commander).

There just isnt enough incentive to play as a commander.

One of many bugs :

Commander tanks dissapear afther deadt, so you cant use them as armor.

Tankers tanks stay dead ao they can be used as armor.

Progress is glacial towards 75 points, not at all sure if anyone is going to give this the 4 or 5 hours for 75 points, making it more like 30 plus hours, and being both very good and very lucky before you even have a shot at the 500 point finish line. I stand corrected after putting 90 minutes in you can earn points towards the monthly OP's however you don't appear to get credit for OP's like the Long Haul even though it looks like you are supposed to waiting in the que.

 

Why are the Red team being led by apparently real players? Why is my supposed bot team apparently filled with real players? Why, in Tanker mode does the Red team get 10, stick together like glue, and cruise across the map killing yolo 'bots' and snapshotting like a boss going full speed? 

 

So many bizarre things about this mode. Commander mode is an excersize in costly boredom and Tanker mode is a killing machine that is really a pain.

Got to the 75 points. Rai, clarify please, the points carry over and the mode will be back 5 more time. 75 x 6 = 450 so you have to get 83.3333333 points per round to reach the 500 point completion mark?

 

If for nothing else but fairness and players sanity, can you suggest that a win in either mode, Commander or Tanker will earn say 2 points, a loss 1 point? Can't even describe the frustration of winning a match and getting 0 points. 

 

Second issue is that the monthly OP's show as active waiting in the queue but didn't actually count. I hope that the plan is to get them to count like contracts count in Ranked Battles? If not, fix the screen to show the actual active OP'S in the queue. 

 

As mentioned above by others, the bots have been over buffed. If you are spotted, the bots cluster together and can fire with pinpoint accuracy while fully moving. Makes it easy to die very quickly in corridors and moving in open areas if they only see your tank. 

 

Biggest problem is the first one I mentioned. You should ALWAYS be given a point per match, and frankly two per win considering the time consuming process of playing this mode.

This is a joke there is no way a heavy can turn it's turrents fast enough to keep up with the lights mostly ones that are fast. If you watch the guns on a normal match you can mostly out run A turrent when doing a death circle around them. The bots act like they are glued to you even if you hit thee brake they don't ever miss or lose you in there sights

True enough, once you're spotted, you're as good as dead unless you hide. Once spotted by a Commander's bot team, you remain so, even if sixth sense says otherwise. It's a bug. Also, being able to rent a Chrysler K and use it in up to 5 slots, that's another bug that must be fixed prior to the next stage going live. It's great if you're playing in Commander mode, makes life really easy, but most of the available points are earned in Tanker mode and that becomes a real pig.

Do you need BOTH Season and Progression ops completed to get the free tank at the end or are we just aiming to get 500 points?
