I tried the Recon missions on the test server and it is pretty nice to be able to test new stuff before it comes out, especially maps. However, something stuck me as a little bit odd and that's the fact that stats are accumulated in these battles.
I don't know if that's just me but when I test new maps on the sandbox or test server, I tend to explore quite a bit more than I would normally do and try different approaches, risky spotting locations etc.
To be fair, I don't really know how popular this new mode how it will evolve in the future (is it even permanent?). I know it is not 100% the same purpose but stats are not counted in sandbox, public test, or any "special" game mode either.
I guess I won't be running around in my EBR exploring dark corners of the map all that much. Before some of you go full "reeeeeeee" about me being obsessed with stats, I don't really care all that much but I would rather not post 40 zero damage games while exploring a brand new map in a light tank to provide feedback.
What do you guys think?
