I thought everyone was kidding about Hot Wheels! Tanks we have know go to fast.   How long do we have to endure this?

I am looking forward to all the bug fixes mentioned on the web portal news story. The Bizon needed a buff. Good stuff incoming & I hope all the spawn point changes work out well.

SPP

BTW here is the news link for others:

How about trading that bright blue bone shaker in for the black version? Or is that a Hot Wheels thing because of new monster truck paint job?

With true vision test i will pass on the bright shiny targets for now on in case its implemented again. The warlord gold color shined across the map even through partial bush cover. Hard pass sir

Aww... and I was so looking forward to WWE season 2 with Ric Flair and Macho Man. Oh well, I guess now I have to wait for season 3 and the ” My Little Ponies” theme.

I joked on Facebook that I wanted a Macho Man tank that did bonus ramming/falling damage on enemy tanks. XD snap into a slim Jim

Heartbreaking to see that players get two garages in four years that at least look like from a war game, with Halloween and Holiday season themed garages inbetween, but when Mattel jumps in we get a new super-ugly garage every couple of weeks.

Unfortunately not, they are completely same, just reskins... :sceptic:
