Is it true you do not get points for rentals in Commander? If so, you really need to make people aware of this.

How do you expect part time players to complete the Season and Progression Ops? The XP is totally Crap. First time i actually read the news and info. 

 

Did anyone even test the xp or the mode? 

 

Players who complete the Season & Progression Ops over the course of the next six Commander Mode events will receive a free, currently unavailable premium Tier 8 tank. Details and specifics on this tank will be coming in the near future - for now, we can say for certain you will not want to miss it, so get those Ops cleared Commander!

 

^^^^ Guessing no point in me playing it anymore. 

 

The XP is bad in-game. Yeah i get that you don't want to make it too easy. But you do know that afk'ers and yolo players are getting more xp in-game than players that'er actually playing the bloody mode?

You seem to be punishing people for playing as the commander. 

 

As the commander you can earn 0-3 points each game. The ops that give you points, 1 only gives you points if you win and keep pretty much all your tanks alive (So an overwhelming win) the other two ops a commander can complete for points are XP based, and since you can only ear 700-800 xp a game as the commander you can't complete them every game. 

 

As a tanker, you earn can earn up to 5 points a game and you always get at least 1 if you win (while the commander can win and still get 0) plus you earn Xp faster as a tanker and another tanker ops only requires you to hit the enemy 5 times. 

 

Making the earnings considerably better for tankers vs commanders.

 

I want to play commanders mode, but in order to get the 75 points in 6 days you've made it so I pretty much have to play tanker. 

 

I like the RTS mode guys, but make the earnings worthwhile please. 


War is a Democracy and the enemy always gets a vote.

3 MoE's: E-25, M41 Walker Bulldog, E-50, Snakebite, E-75, T32, Tiger 131, Skoda T25 - In order obtained

Well said.  I can’t support this enough as it’s the singular complaint I have with the Mode..... except for not personally liking RTS

I feel compelled to make one comment with regards to allowing Commanders to choose their own tanks...... any Commander who fields 3 or more Chrysler Ks is virtually guaranteed to win against the Tankers...... Every single time they just rush them all forward and mow down the OpFor

Commander mode...   Tier 8 tank...  Strange gameplay...   I'm gonna laugh my butt off if the reward tank is an artillery!

I tried to start as Commander but don't have enough tanks.

Wasn't going to spend nearly a million silver to finish my roster, or thousands in gold, just to see if I would like it.  No way.

Played as tanker, didn't hate it.  But it wasn't something I'd want to do more than a couple matches out of a hundred because it seemed the rewards were pretty thin compared to regular multiplayer.  Even that would be mostly for Charlie points, to get to the 2x sooner.  And I have a contract to finish.

Decent concept.  I'd rather see commanders face off by controlling identical teams of bots, not players.

But doin a commander ranking based on winrate and xp sum up from own tanks, no rentals, really strange.

My last match as Tanker, the Commander lost (again).  

He earned 6 XP each for most of his tanks, 7 XP for two of them.

Oof I just finished "The I In Team" 10/10 and there is now an OP with the same title but I need to have 5 of my tanks to survive 5 times? Impossible. (rentals don't count) Isn't this a bit much?

The next one is do it with 6 surviving tanks. Got it done earlier. Definitely not impossible

For you yeah but I ain't got no tier 8's, just 1td, no meds, and few heavies, I wish I got the defender.. would make it much easier. Also let me rephrase that. Impossible for a f2p player with not that many t8's, better?

Big fat downvote for me. First match, lost 85k. Outrageous. Took all premium consumables off and made 1k. Poor controls and absolutely insane camera gave me a headache. Then after 2 games I realized I wasn't playing against bots or even another Commander, but real players. So imbalanced. Who thought that was a good idea? Then I noticed the super low XP returns next to the super low silver returns. No reason to play it. Not fun. Really frustrating. I'm 1000% ok with missing out on a premium if I don't have to play one more game, much less 6 more weeks.

Things I've noticed whilst playing as a tanker so far:

1. AFK players and those who start a game only to quit and play another game put the rest of the team at a big disadvantage seeing as you are already 2-3 tanks down to begin with. These kind of players should be receiving ZERO xp and ZERO silver to properly discourage this behaviour, the same goes for other game modes where players do this. 

2. The xp and silver gain for those players who win a match are pathetic, even when playing your premium tanks. God forbid you have to use premium rounds when you come up against a team with FIVE Chrysler K's rushing you head on. 

3. Which leads me onto my third point, the commander should not be able to field 5 of the same tank. There are not a massive amount of commanders playing this mode so several times I have faced the same player fielding a team of 5 Chrysler K's who just rush one tank at a time until they are all dead. This is not fun.

4. Most of the maps seem to be balanced well apart from Prokhorovka which seems to favour commanders who just rush the cap circle and let the AI tanks annihilate those players on your team who keep picking tanks with paper armour.
