I think a free for all game mode would be a good addition to world of tanks. It could be on a large map but with only say 10 people. And this would give all of the teamkillers something to occupy their time instead of screwing up the standard battles

Sounds fun.  Or, you can just go to a training room and do a free for all, but then I guess you lose credits.

but med/heavy will dominated this mod, arty will be unplayable, light(scout) will just chill around and try to put some hit and TDs are unplayable without support to cover side and back

Its a good idea dont get me wrong, but the game is based around how much damage you do and how many people you get killed. Killing 1 person or being killed right away by 10 other people would just put a hole in your pocket... Its a great idea, but the Nature of people tends to degrade the game.

I would prefer to see more historical play modes than arcade modes.

The biggest problem with an FFA style gamemode is that the current maps are built around 15vs15 encounters, and as such make it so that each side has a generally equal amount of advantages. As you cannot spawn people near each other in a ffa, certain people would spawn in a better position than others, allowing them to have a much easier time to get a kill or two before dying. Essentially, this would leave FFA as more of a game of luck than skill. The time needed to revamp old maps or make new ones would be a complete waste, so I'd say its rather unlikely we'd be seeing FFA anytime soon.

This would be a disaster for artillery for several reasons:
  • We're blind without you:  We rely on your radio in order for us to see and shoot anything.  In other words, you're involuntarily giving us target coordinates.  Thank you very much :).  If you now put us by ourselves, we' can't see anything.
  • We're the flimsiest Tank Destroyers ever: our armor is so thin, you don't have to shoot us.  Even some light tanks can significantly damage us by simply running into us.
  • Our maneuvering is clumsy: this ties into my previous point.  it takes a long time to manuever and aim.  Even then, we miss most of the time in direct fire (i.e. "TD mode").  Also it takes a long time to reload and aim.  In the meantime, you've got us.
  • We need protection: as I've said, we're the weakest member of the team.  I once played a training room with a light tank.  It was terrible for me.  I never got a fair chance--I never saw him until he was right next to me and by that point, there was nothing I could do to defend myself.  It was the worst waste of my time and resources ever.
In other words, this is the cruelest, most unfair game play you could put artillery into.  Why not make it worse by putting us in a map we're absolutely useless in!

free for all/deathmatch COULD work with tanks. it would have to be limited by SAME tier/tank type.

for example, you would join the queue with your KV-1 and wait for 15 or 30 more tier 5 heavies to join before a deathmatch is started.

This mode could just as easily be called "Sucks to be anything other than a top tier heavy or medium mode".

I would not play this mode often, but the game needs to have the feature.  And even though I dont want to play this feature, I cannot complain and say its a bad idea.

As for arty and TD, if you bring either into a free for all battle, you deserve what you get.  I can see if the feature is added, it will be a seperate game selection instead of being in random battle rotation, or they would have to put a filter in to exclude arty from that mode.

Why not just have it with platoons instead of single tanks, or have it with 6 teams of 5. That would solve a good deal of problems you might have with it.

This starts to make me think of 3-way random battles, but I know that is a long way down the road.

it would be really fun do like 5 peeps 10 max but them around the map in diffrent parts and the whole arty deal or un fair teir or how evr they could have it split up all tier 1s all teir 2s all teir 3s and so forth and after it brakes down teir then depending if your arty, td or a tank then it would put u into a room of free for all artys or free for all td or free for all tanks where its all tds all arty or all tanks and not a big mix up of tanks so it would be fair in game and so credits will be easyier make like a 25-30% credits boost to help the credit problem out

Bump.  We need this mode just to get the non-team players to play a non-team game.

To all the stupid complaints; simple solution

Create a game mode.

Done. Now stop your wining about everything; you are the reason why nothing new comes out for this bloody game.
