Every once in a blue moon, one of the WG'ing staff will play in a game and at the beginning of the game, you will get notified there is some reward for knocking out their tank.  When I say once in a blue moon, I mean I've seen it three times in nearly 40k battles.  

 

First off WGing staff should be playing the game more often, and in a way that players know they are playing the game.  If you don't even play your own game there is the optic of being 'disconnected' from it.  In my opinion, this disconnect carries into the forums to some degree.  (i.e. WGing doesn't listen to us here)

 

In addition though, they should offer some really good players the option of being 'bounty targets'.  Like some of the purple unicum players who are crazy good at the game.  Let them sign up to be bounty players, where if you kill them, you get some small bonus.  I bet some of the unicums would gladly take on the challenge, and it would offer a new dynamic to the game.

Hello, Bounty events are limited time events. The rest of the time we play like normal (no bounty). This is why you don't see it normally.We had players with Bounties during the last event also. :great:

Bounty is a neat concept. The problem being EVERYONE pulls a Yolo to get that kill.

I’ve not seen anyone with a Bounty in almost 6 years. Which is to say never. Guess I need to play more often.

Why are you targeting Unicom players? And if you understood how most Unicom play you would realize they don't want a bounty on their head.

How about all arty are made permanent bounties, perhaps change up the rewards weekly.

World of tanks Auto lock edition,  because aiming shouldn't be a skill.

I wouldn't either, but it would be voluntary.

I don't think that would be fair to people like you who play arty so often.

Funny thing is they kinda already have an unofficial bounty as it seems that most players will ignore everything else if Arty is spotted.

The attraction is powerful indeed.

My most killed tank is the M55/53 and some 700+.  And yes when they are spotted they should be a priority target indeed.  They can be eliminated with usually one shot and it takes their DPM out of the game

Unfortunately, the mere fact that a player is good makes them a threat, and therefore a priority. With the plethora of mediocrity in player base skill (I include myself in this category), a very good player on the red team can swing the tide of a battle into their favor.

Some Uni's may disagree, but in my experience if a Uni survives the endgame of a battle, they have a decided advantage over the outcome in their favor. Even when out numbered 2 or 3-1. The same cannot be said for the majority.

Idk why people would volunteer for something like that, you’d just be getting nothing but people yoloing you along with arty focusing you.

Yeah, I have no idea why they would...

 

:hiding:

 

 

In fact, it was pretty fun and I will have the tag next time as well (unless something unexpected were to happen that I don't have control over..) but I wouldn't wanna have it permanently.

Have to agree, It was a blast being a bounty. Especially watching greens trying to protect me. But I wouldn't volunteer for it everyday. Would completely ruin WOT, For me anyways. But 1 or 2x a year, I'm all in. Lol

as an arty player i think it would be absolutely fair and should be implemented.
