Okay then why are players with less games an more losses being ranked

 

Hello, you have 0 battles yesterday so it wouldn't be possible to be placed on the Leaderboard. Please remember, it only updates daily and is not a "LIVE" leaderboard. You'll have to wait until tomorrow for the games that you played today to be counted. :honoring:

That's great news, thanks! I don't understand why Rai or Max couldn't simply confirm it when we're all asking...

Bots are still shooting me when im undetected,making tankers only have 6 players max now gives the yolo commander tactic easy wins, the xp and silver boost is great, the pts for commanders are great, this phase was a lot better and the silver reward made it all the more worthwhile and finally please add the grass back!! :unsure::teethhappy:

Another thing..... I didn’t rent any tanks.... that means I can’t field multiples of the same tank as a Commander like someone who rented tanks.

Points. Play for points. If you play and do not earn points, but xp only you play battles that you do not need at all. If course if you love commander mode why not..

There are no plans to change the name as the files are already in game. 

 

Files? Surely it's the name is a string resource in an xml file? The build of the app should take longer than the change.

This event seems like it's the best one yet. I don't like how you have to play at least 5 games daily for the competition though, I only got 2 in yesterday but other days I can get more than 5 in.

 

I had a game this morning where the last enemy tank was invisible. I reported it in the Report a Bug forum too:

This mode is so extremely unbalanced. 

 

As a commander you controll tanks who sometimes refuse to do what you want them to do, run into buildings, stop moving in the open without any reason and sometimes just stand in front of the enemy without shooting against real human players who have controll over their tank.

Enemy tanks can sidescrape, go hulldown or aim for weakspots while commanders tanks don't even shoot the tank you want them to shoot. 

 

 

Commander vs Commander would be fair but against Tankers Commanders got nearly no chance here so it's just pointless to play.

i love it when my tanks all aim for the hardest to hit target instead of the ones out in the open.

though i still find it fun to play.

Bots still shoot back into unspotted targets if they are "idle".

Work 100% same way as before. If bot is "idling" (meaning NOT following any kind of commanders command or auto-fithing any of your allies) it will always shoot back when getting attacked by unspotted target regardless of it's location. Even if you fire outside of render range or if you behind cover and he dont have any chances to hit you.

We are still unable to "REMOVE" tank from slot once they got picked so you cant fill the slot with "free" stock tank.

Hello, you just highlight the slot and press RT to remove the tank. :honoring:

So, it took me about 10 hours as a tanker to complete phases 1-3 yesterday and here's my feedback.


 

VK-100 is a god tier vehicle for a tanker playing against a muppet commander. Highest amount of blocked was over 22k.


 

Löwe black is the best tank to grind this as a tanker. Most xp in one battle was ~2800. Almost all tanks except TD's bounce off from it so all it takes is to find a good hull down position and farm them bots.


 

As a tanker against muppet commanders, win rate was over 90%. Some muppets knew how to send all 9 tanks against one tanker and in most cases it's gg if the green bots didn't go for the free shots. Chance to win as a tanker against one of those 12k personal rating commanders was pretty much zero. There were two broken commander forces: [4 x Chrysler, 2 x Huntsman, 3 x WZ-120] and [4 whatever and 5 x WZ-120]. In my opinion there should never be more than 2 of the same tank in a commander's force. Having 4 + 5 overpowered tanks and a competent commander makes it almost impossible for tankers to do anything (due to the fact that tankers can't platoon and half of the green bots always drive to the farthest corner and do nothing in the entire game).


 

Some commanders managed to make traps and control their forces without pushing with 9 overpowered tanks and it was a pleasure to lose against them. One game in particular on overlord, the commander sent mediums and heavies to the flag and like proper muppets all greens yoloed there and then the TD's that were hidden showed up and blasted the flanking green bots in the rear. Panic ensued as the green flankers died like flies. It was a loss due to lack of scouting and a gg for the commander.


 

There were some bugs. The tank selection broke more than once and always due to visiting ops tab and re-selecting tanker. The way it broke was that X didn't start the game and I had to exit the mode and visit multiplayer and come back to reset it. In one game it threw me straight to multiplayer after visiting ops tab and selecting tank. In another game, 3 guys had managed to platoon as tankers. They even had the platoon 1 number next to them. There was also one time when I left the commander mode it asked if I want to break the platoon I'm in (I didn't do any platooning yesterday so that was strange).


 

One more thing. There should be a training map for commanders. I'd like to try it but the one time I tried it in phase 2 all I could do was point them all somewhere and win easily. It wouldn't even have to be a tutorial, just a map where one could familiarize with the controls (e.g. Mines with one enemy bot or whatever). I have no clue how to control the forces as a commander and I don't want to practice controls while players are farming the tanks.

Yes please, need a commanders sandbox or war stories equivalent or something to train in before sacrificing ourselves. The movement commands have improved (efforts are much appreciated) but are still complex and not intuitive. Takes some getting used to and when you are being shot at, it is not the best time to be learning. Especially frustrating if you invested gold/silver. For those who are missing more than one tank for their commander platoon, the investment could become significant. I will be finishing the tanker ops tonight with exactly 300 points. will give commander mode a couple of hours, let’s see how many tankers I can provide easy wins for.  Happy tanking

Commander Mode Request: Being Able to Fire at a Specific Target without moving, When i press X to Attack, it Moves the Tank into Brawling Range and for TD's it's a bad idea.

 

Also Ban Artillery from Tankers Team, Tankers in my opinion has a small advantage already, Once you can code AI to play Artillery, You can put it back in

 

In the 9th Commander Slot, i can't pick anything other than a Light, Why is this?

Just making sure: Do you keep your rank for the next season/phase, or do you have to climb up again?

You keep your progress throughout so if you're on 100 Commander Points and 50,000 XP after Phase 2, In Phase 3, All Stuff will be as it was :) But Ops become harder too usually.

Points i can earn from XP: 155 (I've done Major I)
Points i'm currently on: 250
Total from Bonuses: 405


so i would need 95 points from Ops if i just grind the XP (A Ton of XP but grinded around 40k XP today).
