Hello,

First time poster long time player (1.5 years +).

Obviously, we have been told that there are new game modes coming - Historical Battles among others when they arrive, but I also had an idea for another game mode type - national battles.

Not historically accurate but just for fun all tanks on each side from the same nation. In order to make things fairer, they could perhaps increase the tier spread a little more for these battles so save waiting in queue.

I think this would be quite easy to implement, and would definitely change the tactics and the way teams play in these battles (15 French versus 15 German tanks would be an interesting battle to say the least).

That's my two cents worth, I hope that the devs implement this, and critically, *** I hope that they implement some game modes with a little more imagination than has been the case so far, I am sure we can think up other battle types that do not just revolve around capping***.


Great game on the whole, well done, excellent job.

See you out there - Funkman28.

would be good for historical nuts BUT it would wreck balance as each nation has better tanks in a certain tier range

If we want 'balanced' gaming there is a really cool game...called...

I think it would be neat to have that as a option. I am in favor of adding as many options as possible even ones that don't interest me. More options means more people have fun, means they stay and play longer. Talk the game up and attract more people which keeps the money coming in for WGN, so they can keep improving the game for me.

So in short, it'll become 24/7 American/Soviet vs American/Soviet.

This ideas been around for a long time. I guess I'd like it in the game just to have it, but honestly it would just be disbalanced.

It's great when the countdown begins and you see your team is almost filled with one nationality, I think this is a great idea.

1 game in 10 would be nice.

Not necessarily, It all comes down to player skills in their tanks..... Ive seen many battles where someone thinks their tank is superior to anothers and then gets rolled by them because they play better. Player skill is Waaaaay more important than just what tank it is.

The idea is that you dont get to choose what side your fighting, you just pick a tank and click "National Battle" - then you are thrown into a game with all team mates from the same nation against some other nation - could be Germans, could be Americans, could be chinese.

In the interim, they would have to mix, say, French, British and Chinese on the same team until they fill out the tech tree, as these nations lack certain tanks, notably SPGs for the latter two.

This sounds like a great idea.
Better yet, You can make a Heroes & Generals style Meta Game through Clan wars.

I agree. However, I would still like to see it attempted. Needless to say, there would be plenty of room for improvement and certain tanks would need to be balanced to accomodate for this.

One of the first things that anyone with any inkling of history points out is "why are the nationalities mixed together?". I would say that instead of individual nations, the teams could be allies versus axis, except that the Germans are the only axis nation available because Italy and Japan were not really on their tank game during or after WWII. So that idea is ruled out.

As I said before, I would still love to see this become a reality. The average player would probably blame imbalanced tanks, but perhaps the experienced player could recognize the strengths and weaknesses of a particular nationality and capitalize the strengths and minimize the weaknesses, similar to how wars are actually fought.
