Hey folks!

 

I know many of you have already seen this post over on the EU forums or over on Reddit, but for those of you who haven't here's some information on the Historical Battles coming in 9.0!

 

You will be able to enter Historical battle mode choosing ‘Historical Battle Mode’ in the window for battle type selection. If you're currently a member of a platoon the option for Historical battles’ will be inactive.

 

Below you can see the menu for selection between historical battles. This menu will appear after you had entered the mode:

 

 

This is the main menu. Using this menu you can choose a historical battle, vehicle and download the ammunition before you can enter the battle.  Upon the release of 9.0, you will be able to choose between three historical battles:

  • Lake Balaton offensive. Map: Erlenberg

Vehicles:           USSR – IS, T-34, T-34-85, ISU-152, SU-100, SU-76

                          Germany – Stug III, Tiger II, Panther, Pz IV, Jagdtiger, Jagdpanther

 

  • Battle of Kursk. Map: Prokhorovka

Vehicles:           USSR – SU-152, KV-1S, SU-85, T-34, T-70, SU-76,

                          Germany – Ferdinand, Pz IV, Panther, Tiger I, StuG III, Pz II, Pz III

 

  • Ardennes Offensive. Map: Erlenberg

Vehicles:           USA - M10 Wolverine, M18 Hellcat, M36 Jackson, M4A3E8 Sherman, M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo

                          Germany – Jagdpanther, Pz IV, Panther, Tiger I, StuG III, Tiger II

 

Here you will be able to choose the vehicle and a nation of tanks to fight with in this historical battle. For that purpose simply click on the vehicle you want to play and it will be chosen automatically if you have this vehicle in your hangar.

 

Tanks that are not available in your hangar will be marked with dark color and won’t be available for selection.

 

 

Translation:

---

(«Bыбранный» = «Chosen», «Есть в ангаре, может выйти в бой» = «it’s available, you can participate using it in the battle», «Нету в ангаре» = «It’s not available in the hangar», «Есть в ангаре, не может выйти в бой» = «It’s available in the hangar, but you can’t participate using it» )

---

The vehicle will participate with the same crew as in any other battle types. In a Historical reference section you should be able to learn more about the battle. On the right side from the vehicle selection menu you will be able to find the information about the game mode as well as the map you will be playing on. 

 

 

There are three possible Game modes for Historical battles:

  •          Standard battle
  •          Assault
  •          Encounter battle

 

---

Translation of the screenshots above:

Ruinberg

 

Assault

Team A – Defence

Team B – Assault

---

The information about costs of ammunition and ammunition load used in this historical battle can be found  above the “Battle” button.  Ammunition load can’t be changed  and has to be paid entirely before you can join the battle. The costs of not used ammunition will be credited back after the battle.

 

 

The menu for modules selection is not available in this mode. When you hover the mouse over its area the client shows information about vehicle modules in the certain historical battle.  Even if you don't have all necessary modules on his vehicle, the missing modules will be installed on the vehicle for the period of the historical battle for free.

 

 

Just like other modes, the matchmaker screen will appear after pushing the “Battle” button.  As in the case of random battles the matchmaker of historical battles doesn't take into account the win rate and amount of battles already played by the respective user. The main balancing parameter is the balance weight of the vehicle, which is individual for each tank available in this battle.

 

Team composition of both teams may differ regarding the amount of vehicles and vehicle tiers but both teams will be always equal considering their total balance weight. 

 

There will be no voice chat in historical battles but it will be possible to communicate with team members (as well as with the enemies) via normal chat.

 

That's all for now, folks! Feel free to also check out QuickyBaby's video overview of Historical Battles:

Laera, is there a plan to let platoons participate in Historical Battle Mode in the future?  I think these would be more interesting if you're playing with someone you know.

Welp, time to rebuy that POS Panzer IV and start down the Russian TD line (I want to be well prepared).

I was gonna ask if it could be implemented in platoons but then I saw Jagtigers can go against SU 76s??

 

Maybe wrong interpreting on my behalf, time to check that vid
