Kudos to the Wargaming chaps on this one! I jumped on at 5am this morning and can't wait to get back on tonight.

As old folks such as myself like to say, it's more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

I have to admit I laughed when a Borsig zipped away from me with 100hp left.  So I zipped to catch up (I was invisible by then) and put in the last shot for the kill.

 

It's a no-stress insanity fest that really makes the game fun.  I like how you can complete missions in this mode.

The separate mode is cool but the OP cartoon joke tanks you release every year need to be temporary like the T49A so they don’t polllute an otherwise great game year round. By this time next year, all tier 7 games played will be at least 75% cartoon tanks because you always make them strong as hell so people who have them play them religiously. It’s an accumulative problem and you need to stop contributing to it. Seriously. The balance team has been overall trash lately in fact. The WZ-120-1 FT and post buff SU-122-54 are game breaking OP. Whoever made those decisions deserves a serious slap to the face.

a very real question about the event, it says in the event window that the bio-gas will be given in a battle (doesnt say that you need to win it) where you get more than 300 exp, but i got 586 exp and no bio-gas in a lost battle, so the question is do we really have to win the battle? since i won a battle where i lost in the first 45 secs and got around 289 or  259 exp (i think) zero damage in the final results and still got the bio-gas if your description of the event is wrong please rephrase that part in the event window its really misleading

Sorry for my english, its not my natal language.

Its necesary win to get the biogas?

 And the gravedigger is so squishy, i beat my first, shot a lot, but no pen.

 The game mode is insane, a lot of laughs when someone crash his tank against a wall.

yup not impressed with the phrasing of the biogas saying you only need 300 xp to get it. so you need to win 655 games in a tier 10 vehicle to earn enough biogas in 10 days and make sure you buy the cookies early so you wont get screwed at the end if you are going for both tanks. someone said you can only buy 3 crates per day.

You can open SIX crates per day, 3 for free + 3 paid with credits

RibbleStripe a question on the Gravedigger, what does being a collector tank mean? Does it have a good credit coeficient? 

 

Most importantly does it being a collector tank means it can be nerfed?

Collector tanks can have normal or increased coefficient. Gravedigger has increased one.
That's right. These tanks can be adjusted due to balance needs.

WG plan

1. Create an op tank (gravedigger )

2. Convince players they can earn it for free while making it basically impossible (at least 5 hrs per day of playing time to get it)

3 let the players do tons of work and get close, but a few thousand gold short.

4 have the players spend real money to not waste their work and get an op tank

5 WG gets lots of money and tier 7 matchmaking is broken again like it was with drac and helshing

6 I like the mad game event, but the gravedigger grind is ridicules and impossible to 98% of players

5 hrs is saying almost nothing since you need to "win" to get the bio-diesel probably around 10 hrs max 7 or 6 min of pure play and still probably youre gonna need to waste gold

How would things be better if the tank were easy for everyone to get for free? whats the upside? They need to keep the lights on, Im happy it is a tough grind.

it is doable though for 1 tank. and lets be honest here. if you're a collector buy the damn tanks after the event.

myself, i just want real or blueprint tanks. i do have the panzer girl tanks. but there still real tanks

How do we play the Mad games?

"Only vehicles of Tier V and above can join battles, which are always fought in Supremacy mode. "

"Win 50 regular or Mad Games battles"

Ok, where's the link to play? What am I missing?

I love Mad Games... but I have one very very big complaint.  It's not available at night.

 

This makes sense for ratings battles.  At night the queue is so low that you may as well shut it off.  This doesn't make sense for Mad Games.  It's the new, fun game mode that just about everyone wants to play.  So why is it shut off at night?

 

I guess I'll just go lurking back to something else even though I desperately want to play/stream Mad Games.  :(

We worried that there are more players who are not ready to wait so long and overall impression of the event could be spoiled. However we notice such wishes and surely will pass them to event developers.

I don't want it to be free, it's better if it's hard, but it needs to be reasonable For example, I did 5500 damage earlier, but I got just as much bio fuel has the two bottom players who did 300 damge, this event is not a hard event, it's just time consuming, I don't know about you, but I can't spend 6-7 hrs a day playing this. Something that would be better, is make it as it is now, but add 10 bio fuel to every 1k damage you do, than it's more than just a play all day event and is more reasonable as for how many wins are needed.
