Again Tanker mode is a little cheesy but much better for earning points. Had a Commander win draw and a loss, all for 0 points. That is seriously annoying. Why not just give a point per match, and additional points for the various Commander mode OP's? 

 

Need to reach 186-187 points, and it is nice that the points earned from the OPs also include a bonus point for the Seasonal OP, all while also playing multiplayer for the daily points and working on the Sharpshooter contract. Sort of feeling stretched.

Bots are still shooting into unspotted targets. Works the same way as before. if you shoot idling bot while beeing unspotted he will shoot back once. This will repeat every time untill Bot will recieve some kind of command or start focusing some spotted Tanker (basicaly stop beeing idle).

This actually always was a thing and worked like this in every mode with bots like WS or PG, not just Commander mode. Idle bots always shoot back even if they arent suppose to see you.

 

Berling map were removed, thats fine.

But replacing it with Ruinberg? With a Defense mode for COMMANDER, Not Tankers? Who in the world thought this is a good idia? Absolutely terrible. Commander can win this map only if tankers are complete potatoes.

 

Once you put any tank into slot as commander you can no longer empty the slot to fill it with random stock tank. Can only replace it with other owned or rental tank.

 

When taking controll over tank iwhile playing as commander mode gun rises up on a flat ground for no reason every now and then and you cant see your shell tracers.

 

The requirements to get a Prize tank looks like a Mockery. There were numerous discussions about ammount of points needed to complete commander mode season and how much you need to quilify for the prize and..... BAM you actually just need to reach "Lieutenant Colonel II" in the progression OP which means all you need is just grind hell of alot of XP and you could actually care less about getting points specialy for such a frustrating OPS like winning 2 times in a row or winning with 6 tanks alive.

The progression is so bad currently on 115 points with only one op available to earn points as a tanker... Also every op I have done as a tanker is for spotting, I just had a op I was able to complete 5 times but yet i completed it in 2 battles and only got 2 points, commander mode is more broken than the first phase haha

You probably didnt finish all the "seasonal" ops last time all of which are actually just require to play alot to be completed. They give most ammount of points. Progression OPS give very little on top of that.

I am at 135 pts atm and i didnt even finished half of "seasonal" ops this time yet.

Look at my previous comment. If you playing Commander mode to get FV4202 (P) then relax and just play. It appears we only need to grind tons of XP instead of points.

Points only needed to get a small amount of gold and premium days as a prize for progression OPS.

To add. I was thrown into a multiplayer battle with a rental vehicle after trying to enter battle que for multiple times - pressing A multiple times on controller did nothing and eventually i was in multiplayer battle - but how? I was in commander mode and did not navigate out of it

I think the math works out to 83 points per week so you aren't too far behind. I find the abysmal earnings of XP and the very real potential for earning 0 points whether you win, lose or draw in Commander mode to be the most frustrating thing about this game mode. Doing it, but it is not a very polished game mode.

Theres an end of all 6 events prize which is a new tier 8 prem which you need 500pts for and then theres the fv4202p which you earn by grinding through the ranks to reach lieutenant colonel so you need xp and and around 83pts per event to get both.

I just realised after winning 10 commander games for 10pts another set of 5 wins unlocks for 5pts and these unlock more so this is a positive however it would have been nice to see a list of all the ops to know which progress onto new ops.

Updated page with commander mode Op information! 

So... if I’m reading the updated information correctly here....  The Tank Commander “points” only go to the Master Commander chain of Ops(and current stage of seasonal Games a/b/c)? The Ops/Stages that actually reward the Tank(the FV4202 and 6-Season Tank) are XP-based only?  
 

I played 20 games as a Tanker last night over 4 hours or so and made up less than 7000 XP.  I did happen to earn LOTS of points towards autumn alpha, but I actually made more progress with Alpha playing Tanker than I made towards Lt Colonel in the same amount of time.

 

We don’t even know what the 6-Season reward tank IS yet..... why keep slogging through such a boring grind that’s only marginally productive for its goal??  Again.... I made more Points for Autumn Games Alpha playing as a Tanker in Commander Mode than I relatively earned in XP towards the Progression Ops goal of Lt Colonel.

 

I have hated Commander mode since day-one.  I had hope when new rewards came along and it was almost fun in September.  But now it is not.  Commander Mode is a boring grindy task with poorly planned (and poorly articulated) Ops with no real incentive to reach them beyond “just wait and see when we announce it”.  At least in Multiplayer I know exactly what I’m working towards and have a reasonable expectation of when/how I will reach that goal.

 

 

*edit* It took a bit... but it’s BOTH Chain Ops AND Progression Ops required for the final reward tank?  Maybe change that last paragraph to have Chain and Progression capitalized and add the word “Ops” to them so people more clearly understand?? It’s still an awful grind for an unannounced reward...... and the XP earnings aren’t enough to get the 4202 in a week’s time unless I want to play nothing but Commander all week for 6 hours a day

Why does Phase 2 have fewer Point giving Ops than Phase 1? I'd like to play this Mode... but it's just mindless. How much time do you expect the average player to achieve 500 points and how much XP?

 

Edited: 200,000 XP. Let's see, at 500 XP/game... that would cost about 400 million synapses per player per phase.

 

Can you adjust the XP gains and Point Ops to something meatier? Y'all invited me to a party, but you're serving only kale chips.



There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

I haven't had a crack at Commander Mode as I only have about an hour or two most nights to play and am docuswd on getting my Alpha Ip points in multiplayer.

 

A question for you Rai, can I earn the same Alpha Op points per battle in Commander Mode or am I better off focusing on multiplayer for this?  Also, can you earn the xp for the Monster Hunter Op in Commander Mode?
