Yeah, my clan [DAY] do. The gamemode has really potential! But there is something different which is a real "fun-killer" actually.
On the Lords of War PTS there are the changes of incoming 0.17 active. So ATGM's could be fired by several units while driving. If you switch from ATGM to Autoloader there is no more delay/munition change timer. So everyone plays BMD's or BMP's now. YOu mostly meet 5 scouts on the maps.

But the gamemode is great and is working good!

Managed to get some Lords of War games in yesterday.

It's entertaining, possibly even more fun than normal PvP (assuming you have a team on comms), but they really need to tweak matchmaking. Running into teams of all-BMP-3s is a nightmare.

Zooming along at full tilt spewing missiles out of the Sheridan is hilariously amusing though.

It's for sure possible to limit units for each sector. But main problem is, that changes from incoming 0.17 are on the Testserver.
So this ATGM changes are hilarious and BMP's and BMD's absolutely OP now.

Up to tier 7, i don't see any reasons to take anything except AFV (short of ERC-90 and VFM and zhalos in their tier) in competitive gameplay even with current meta

They should have limited such capacity to high tier vehicule (Tier 9 and 10) where it would make sense against well protected MBT and allow to balance the current meta (even if 7k dmg on tier 10 with a draco is real XD ).

I can't believe they didn't see the problem coming, it is so obvious...

So for the next two patch AFV will be dominant and then they will introduce a new full missile TD line with decent protection and with a good measure of powercreep.

Obvious F2P mechanism is obvious.

Considering that all actual tank destroyers these days do their killing with missiles, it's only inevitable. Although what's amusing is that none of them will probably be able to fire on the move.

Alright, kids, stop all the crates opening operations and keep them in store for awhile. There is a crazy event on the RU server that might come on EU/NA.
Basically lot of fun stuffs in the crates, specifically : lot of munies (like 500k), premium time (up to 30 days), gold (like 500G) and vehicles (some said they got terminators that way).

So don't open any crates until we know how deep we are getting fucked.

And that too :

It's not the same crates, though. Those with massive rewards are opened through personal account's webpage and in no way connected to the usual in-game ones.

Also, AFV masterrace. We must secure the relevance of our AFVs and a future for ATGM carriers.
