Thoughts on Turret Town!??  Share some of your fun replays!!!

 

My feedback.

 

1. Decal prizes are nice, thanks.

2. No skill crews as prizes are not incentives, however if there was a random chance to have 1,2 or three skills these crews would be a definite incentive. Also random nation, maybe this is already a thing, I’m not sure, but I got the impression they were all USA.

3. A slight crew training bonus would make it feel worthwhile.

4. I feel like almost all games as defenders are losses, and attackers have huge advantage. I recommend you just make a neutral base so both teams have an even chance. No bases would also be fine. Two bases is really horrible, since the defenders, who should be able to wait for the attackers, instead have to run back and forth across the map to either base, while the attackers paradoxically just camp in the base.

5. Thank you to WG for the effort. Maybe if you tweak it a little it’ll become more fun. The bouncy physics from collisions are fun, and I’d like to have more reason to spend time in the mode.

6. Stay healthy

Sad to say, but the best way to WIN is simply to NOT DEFEND a cap. Lose the game then 60 seconds later start a new game. If you are the CAP team, drive in and WIN. If you are the DEFEND team, throw it and MOVE ON. There can be 4 wins that way in the time it takes to win 1 game by defending.

 

Life is too short in this pandemic to waste it on this mini game. And the rewards just aren't worth the bother. I have at least 6 new clown emblems now that I will NEVER put on my tanks. May as well go play a Polish tank or something.

As I said, it is unfortunately far more efficient to not defend at all, and just wait for a game where you're on the attacking team. If everybody followed that approach the rewards would come pouring in. Defending usually just delays the near-inevitable loss by a few minutes, which could have been used to win the next game instead. I wouldn't usually advocate or support throwing a game, even when the odds are stacked against you, but here it's foolish not to. Was this WG's intent, to identify the fools among us? April Fools!

 

If my team tried to put up a defence I did join in, and we even won 1 or 2, (after 6 minutes or so, making it time inefficient), but I did notice that other players were reaching the same conclusions I did and were allowing the cap in order to move on. That is the obvious way to go as things stand.

 

Btw, I won multiple emblems, which I'll likely never use out of respect for my tanks, but I haven't received a crew of any nation. I will use my Pity You Fools inscriptions though, lol.

Well grandson loves it. Sorry about yesterday WG and all I apologise. My dad got took into hospital yesterday and is in Quarantine. 

 

Sorry to hear that. Covid? Stay strong and hopefully he'll come through, especially if he stays off a ventilator. I'm sure the staff will do all they can.

 

My aunt's in a care home near Manchester, so we're counting on the staff there to keep her safe. It's hard not being able to do anything ourselves. Stay home, stay safe everyone. Don't overload the system by getting infected.

Aye tru. Test results back in a couple of days. Can't even visit him. He's an old bull of a man. Found out he's been going out after being told too stay at home. Just need to wait and see. Nothing we can do. Except phone the hospital once a day for updates.

Aw man, IBROX, I’m sorry to hear that. I don’t even know what to say. I’m sorry and I pray for him and your family. He sounds strong, that’s in his favour, and lots of people fight it off if they’re otherwise healthy. I hope he recovers and comes out just fine.

Thanks. Yes he's pig headed and strong. Just for gets he's getting old or doesn't want to admit it. He's doing OK, wife is trying to find out if we're allowed to drop stuff off. But don't think we'll be allowed. Just need to wait and see.

Was not fun due to servers being utter trash . Sank through the map twice , turret would dance about without touching controller. Could not aim or move due to server connection issues . A nice idea . Would be fun if stable servers

Agree!

 

Should have had one base cap, any team can attempt to cap out or destroy all.   That being said you need to add something to make it worth playing; +25% crew xp, a random nation crew with 1-3 skills trained, 100k silver bonus, 500 free xp etc.

 i liked how there was no hud and tank outlines. But the moving pile of sandbags turned me off. This game used to be called world of TANKS and thats why I play it because I like games that feature tanks.

This mode has potential, but because it's so unbalanced and favors the attackers, I wouldn't call it fun.

It's too one-sided to play solo, because there is no way to win defense without platoon help.
