No one cares about the events due to tanking.

Game play during events is even worse than normal play, which is truly shocking. It’s an unending tank fest and until Mail.ru / Pixonic prevent tanking, it’ll continue to be a tank fest.

This event will be even worse than previous ones. People will get the Beacon task then get ‘randomly’ put into the disaster of TDM and immediately tank out of it.

To get good events Mail.ru / Pixonic need to do two thing. Firstly prevent tanking. Pixonic claim they don’t endorse tanking, however, they’ve not done one single thing to prevent tanking in over a year of this god awful match making system. Secondly, they need to come up with tasks that aren’t quite so mind numbingly tedious and lengthy. Not everyone plays 8 hours a day. Expecting people to put in such a ridiculous amount of time is stupid.

Speaking of stupid, did I mention they haven’t made any attempt at preventing tanking...if anything, the latest update is encouraging people to tank. Reduction in daily gold tasks when MKII requires 500 gold for each robot and weapon. Three modes in random battle and hangars cost 7500 gold. So, to get easier gold, people are going to continue to overrun bronze and silver and flatten new players (driving some or most away) while restricting gold income from daily tasks.

I’ve changed my mind. I love this update. With supply drops I don’t need to be cannon fodder for the tankers, the whales, or the mismatch maker. I can log in collect a few supply boxes, log out. I’ll still be able to upgrade, use the market of misfortune, gain a little gold.

No more shitty random mode either. No more Pixonic endorsed tanking shenanigans - (one bot hangar / no penalties for tanking). No more shitty event tankathons. Let the great Bronze migration begin.

Thanks for listening Pixonic.

The players really loved the random mode with Domination and Beacon Rush together, no, really, they did. So why not make it even better by putting the super popular Team Death Match in with those two. I’m sure that having TDM in the mix will really help with the upcoming event, especially when you get the Beacon tasks.

Morons.

Good job Pixonic for stopping the Leavers. You really hate Leavers, don't you?

Now, how about doing something to prevent / stop Tankers. Tankers are the ones who fuck the game up.

Let me make it simple for you. Me go battle. Me change bot. Me change bot. Me change bot. Me change bot. Me suicide bot. Me leave.

Yet more evidence that Pixonic DO NOT want to prevent or stop Tanking.

"Short encounters, few tense seconds before either you or the red dies is what WR pilots live for."

No, most that I know what fair and balanced matches, skilled play or tactical play. Not just point and click. This is why the 6/6 leagues are going up in popularity.

As to a redeemer on a carnage. Range 350, shocktrain's range is much more. Carnage is dead before he even sees the shocktrain user.

Don't be fooled people. By the time you start getting these bots, tankers will be flattening you with their 12/12 hangars.

The writer missed one option out. Open a new hangar and put 1, and only 1 robot in it. Efficient tanking brought to you by Pixonic.

Win a free clone? So in order to win something good, eg Bulgusari wintrain, I'll first need to buy the Bulgusari Wintrain? What a stupid competition.

Showing those in the LPQ won't show you the tankers, just those who leave maps. The LQ now LPQ was never about people tanking.

It's just smoke and mirrors. Pixonic want to look as though they are taking the issue of tanking seriously. They don't. Over a year of no action against tanking pretty much put's the lie to what they say about tanking.

New game modes is easy. Classic era, Britbot Era, Wild West Era, Dash Era. I'd play Classic Era or Britbot Era all the time.

As to Random mode. Very few people like TDM, just scrap it. Keep Dom and Br in separate queues. I hate being in a match, approaching a beacon and then realising, I don't know which game mode I'm playing.

For me BR sucks and takes what little is left of strategy out of the game.

It was a good game…about a year ago…before they introduced this disastrous MMM (Mis-Match-Maker)

The current game has massive problems unless you’re willing to pay thousands to be able to compete.

The league system is a mess, forcing you to fight against opponents who are far better geared than you are. There is no point having a league system when you end up fighting against players from higher or lower leagues. It might as well have no league system and just a free for all. Why is it designed this way? To force you to pay money to be able to compete.

Tanking, the act of lowering your league score so that you’re able to fight much weaker opponents and get more gold and silver. Tanking is rife in the game. Pixonic, after a year of this mess of a league system, have done nothing to prevent tanking. Again, why? To frustrate the player base enough that they’ll open their wallets and get into the higher leagues, where tanking drops off significantly. Again, it’s all about the money.
The lottery system, a highly rigged system that offers some nice top prizes, but you won’t get those prizes without getting most if not all of the other things you don’t want or need. Again, it’s all about the money. Why did they design it this way? So you’ll buy the gold to get the prizes, or you’ll tank down to get the gold and thus encourage others to buy their upgrades / robots / weapons to escape the tanking.

Black Market. Just another scam. Minor prizes or outdated equipment. To get the good things you’ll need to play more often and open more boxes. More interaction with the game increases the likelihood of coming into tankers and, therefore, getting frustrated enough to buy your upgrades.

Overall, the game is just about creating frustration in the player base so that they’ll spend money. It’s not about balance, if it were, the Dash / Shocktrain era would have had a major rethink before release. It’s not about player enjoyment, else the league system would have been implemented in a way to prevent tanking.

Pixonic will continue to put on a good show, but that’s all it is, a show. Remember, “We’re listening.”

"if all your robots are destroyed during the active battle and there’s nothing left to do;" Meaning that Tankers can continue to switch the first four robots and then suicide the last, thus easily avoiding the Leavers Protection Queue.

Or, now with extra Hangars, open a new Hangar, put one low level robot in it, and just play with that robot. You'll mech out even faster. Efficient Tanking brought to you by Pixonic.

Pix will take away one of the daily gold tasks and replace it with supply drops that have no gold. To start MKII you need 500 gold for every bot and weapon. Pix are going to reduce the amount of daily gold, so no, tanking will be just as prevalent as it is now.

They'll give away free components, yay! of their choice, boo! This will start with the Tempest. Not a Haechi, Bulgusari, Shocktrain, Ember or any of the more useful items. It's not a particularly desired item so again, tanking will continue just as it is now.

Yes, it's under powered. This is why you don't see it in the Champions league, and, of the new component dross, it's practically given away. Don't waste time on it.

Unless your squad is all in the same league, don't do it! It takes the highest league member and treats you all as if you are from that league. So, you're in Gold, your friend is in Expert, you'll get seriously outmatched as you'll be matched against Experts.

Squading is not recommended

Tactical retreat? What stupid advice. So retreat out of range of the weapon, and out of range of your team mates due to the ridiculous bounce of the weapon.

So, basically, end up on your own miles away from your 'team'.

New ingame command: "Stay away from me!"

Leagues are meaningless with the sheer volume of tanking going on. MKII LVL 12 Bulgusari wintrain in silver, Pixonic's response: "Working as intended".

As to the MisMatch-Maker: In Gold 2, start match and fight anyone from silver 1 through to Expert 2. What the fuck is the point of leagues if you play people from all sorts of different leagues.

It's taken me 4 months of game play, using the WSP offers and the Black Market to get 9000 Haechi compnents, no weapons for it yet. My Inquisitor components in the same time has reached a mighty 577. This guide might be useful to me in about 5 to 6 years. But, I likely still won't have the weapons to go on the fucking thing.

“Tanking won’t be a viable option” Yeah, right. Heard it all before. Pix will still rely on the LPQ which does nothing about tanking. The only people the LPQ punishes is either the newbies, who don’t know it exists (there’s nothing in game telling them about it), or the dumb tankers. For tankers with an IQ over room temperature, Tanking will carry on as normal.

As to a report system, I’ll believe that when I see it. I would guess players will still get the same, “Thanks for your report. We’ve passed it on to Bob the janitor for ‘filing’”.

Something simple, like, Players have to be in battle for at least 3 minutes before they can start to switch robots. Then, after the 3 minute mark, they have to wait at least 1 minute between robots. This would slow down and make tanking an arduous task. I would think this would be simple enough to implement.

This will do little to nothing about tanking. Once again, rather than taking direct action, Pix decides to go with yet another flawed system. It's just a show to try to convince players they're 'listening'.

People have given many variants of methods to prevent tanking. And, once again, Pix fucks it up.

Encouraging people to move up the leagues with things like...tempest?!?! Really, fucking Tempests, that's such a great prize to start it off with, is doomed to failure. The players know it, Pix knows it, and yet they bull ahead with it anyway. Why? It's just for show. "Look! We really are listening!"

No idea why, but the prior post didn’t show up until I posted this one. I’m guessing the LPQ designer got demoted to doing the website.

Before continuing the Pixonic Crusade to gouge players of yet more money, how about actually fixing the matchmaker, taking and fading?

The current event is a festering turd. Why? Well, let me tell you. The same long tediously boring tasks. The same tired prizes, let’s face it, the last three are the only ones really worth any effort, but is it really worth the effort expected. Lastly, Tanking, fading and the worst matchmaker in existence.

As the current event is unplayable: tanking and fading. I’ll stick to logging in, checking my upgrades, and logging off, until this rubbish is over. January 9th can’t come soon enough.

Before continuing the Pixonic crusade to gouge players of every cent they have...fix the matchmaker and stop Tanking / Fading. The LPQ is worthless.

The current event is worthless to play. Why? Well let me tell you. Tedious repetitive tasks and far too many of them. The same tired prizes, just the last three are of any value for anyone who’s played more than a few months. Lastly, tanking / fading and the worst matchmaker in creation.

I’ve stopped playing until January 9th, when I hope this shit is over with. Just log in, check upgrades, log out.
