Tanks randomly not going to their waypoint, or taking weird routes. Another problem I kept experiencing were my tanks showing their backside to the enemy even though I held the button to face them a certain direction (no I'm not talking about there being a tank behind them). I still don't understand why they let commanders use duplicate tanks,  it's killing commander mode.

You can only use duplicate tanks if you're using the stock lineup that everyone can use for free or using tank rentals.

If you're using tanks from your own garage that you own you can only use each tank once. Unless you own multiple skins of the same tank of course.

As for tanks not following orders or turning around when they shouldn't I haven't had those issues.

Commander mode is a bit boring to play as battles are repeating same patterns.  For me it still seems that commander's tanks obey controls nicely, only some tanks like King Dragon seem to get stuck from time to time and left behind.  The problem is that commanders don't even try to make smart moves with the bots as it's a lot simple just drive them around in a one group and focus fire to closest tanker. This tactics is even more efficient when commander has several same type of heavy tanks with strong front armor.  Most of the tankers don't use premium ammo so armor is really working in commander mode. I have already come to conclusion that commander mode is a failure, I play it just to grind those premium time, gold and silver rewards out of it.

Yeh they seem to have made it slightly worse. Whatever they did its buggy again. So I've been playing as tanker. It seems faster for XP anyway. 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

I like the commander vs commander battles more than the commander vs tanker battles.

 

It can be quite fun on the odd occasion you come across a commander that thinks tactically rather than just rushing you with everything the moment he sees your first tank. Player 27 games in total so far, won all 27.

I also enjoy C vs. C battles more due to tactical posibilities.  If you just go face to face it's a slug fest that is won by commander with more armored tanks.

I haven't even gotten into commander vs. tanker battles but so far the enemy just protects their flag sitting there while I come down the corridors to them. It's ridiculously boring but maye its just me

Played a light tank in commander mode, soon as i got to the edge of a ridgeline at top speed was shot. Happened few times. must have been a bot, almost never happens with humans. Makes spotting difficult

With a light tank you need to play with minimap and keep bots outside of that white detection ring and spot and snipe from there. Try to take camo and premium tanks out first as they have optics or binos that help commander to detect you, after that you can get closer. If you get detected pay attention to the distance and flee immediately to cover as bots can still snapshot you from other side of the map.

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

It is a hot mess isn't it. If the bribes to play it weren't gigantic, would anybody be bothering with it?

And they've spent a whole year of development time on it too... ouchie.

Commander mode was and still is garbage. WG put rewards in the garbage to get you to play in it.

It really is the dumbest crap they've put into this game and it's nothing but a waste of resources when they could be better used elsewhere like upgrading the staffs toilet paper to 2 ply.
