The Great Race - Rats Rule, and Deer Drool

Recommended Posts

Most fun I've had in WoT since whatever that escort event was two or so years ago.

T-50 Sport is king with superior DPM and reload, and it drives pretty easy too after you get the hang of it.  I haven't even bothered touching the other cars.  This is like the Mammoth all over again.  Chaffee is garbage, Leopard is acceptable.

Physics is a little wonky and will sometimes throw your back end up and twist you.  Has happened to me most around teammates, but I've seen it once or twice up ramps while in overdrive.

I need a good damage log mod that can help me keep track of which enemies I've hit.  XVM's isn't working, and I'm losing out on some of my Rapid Fire racing points because of that.

Best part is if you didn't sign up beforehand you can't even fucking play. Because every special mode in the past has required sign-up before . . .

wait what?

does that mean I cant play? what the actual fuck

I can see myself in the pic. Been using the leopard because as long as I don't screw up a turn or physics messes me up near a ramp I'm guaranteed first place. Problem is getting my team to the finish line in time or winning the brawl with this inferior dpm.

Good stopping point for now.  Averaging 29.43 points per race.  Only one other person in the top 14 that is getting at least 29 points per race.  I feel pretty dominant in this format.

I'm pretty sure not signing up for a team only disqualifies you from the leaderboards or the team rewards.  You can still play and get the individual rewards.

No, when I tried yesterday there was no option to play, full stop. I assume it is an option where you click Random, Frontlines etc.? Yeah, no Great Race option.

Find one of the Sport vehicles in your garage and select it.  Use the racing flag icon in the filter to find them.

Ah thanks, hadn't tried that. I'll give it a go tomorrow.

Ended the day only 1990 points up, 70 shy of yesterday.  Brought my average down to 28.9-ish.  Still think I'm pretty good, but there's apparently a guy on the red team doing an average just under 31, so they must have some miracle drug I don't.

2420 points in 80 races yesterday, averaging 30.25.  I guess it's possible if I try.  I've done my time one season and had enough, so I'll let someone else on the team bear the torch for the tournament.

How do you play 30k+ games of this shit and still never realize you should probably shoot the almost dead tank instead of the full health tank?

It's not that simple when it comes to the races anyways.  If you want to get the damage medals, you're better off letting enemies cross the finish line rather than killing them so that they heal up and leave more available damage.  Once on cap, then it's about focusing down the low target, but you also don't want to kill all your opponents off before capping the base.  There's a delicate balance of damaging the enemy enough to get 1k, but not so much that they die before you can cap.  1k damage is more valued at 10 points than capping at 5, so it's more valuable to go for the damage, but if your teammates are doing that too, you might screw yourself out of both if the enemy doesn't have enough health overall.

I've seen worse behavior though.  Won a game where my allies had under 100 damage each.  Couldn't believe it when I saw the results screen for that.

Good event.  Didn't award enough tickets or emphasize most points, best average, or race times over a season.  285 total races and 8350 racing points in the end, averaging 29.298 per game.

I got all 3 Drivers, I think it was about 140 games.

The mode was some fun and at least something different.

1 IDIOT on your team was basically and auto loss.  I had probably 12-15 games with either a full AFK or DC player.  Another dozen where someone just quit mid race.
