Wargaming removed historical battles because of balance issues and game mechanic problems. But could we bring them back? I think that the problem is that historical battles are kind of mis-badged. I feel that wargaming just rigged certain algorithms together to make certain axis tanks fight certain allied tanks. Therefore, we saw tier V shermans with the stock turret going against top tiger IIs and jagtigers. I think that a more of a "realistic battle" approach is a great idea. Certain modifications would be made, like having to stabilize the main gun vertically, spotting targets without indicators, and other good stuff. Matchmaking spread would still be normal, but with modifications to make historical match-ups. Maybe since its harder WG would add higher rewards.  What do you think? Any suggestions to add to the idea?

tired of playing against fantasy tanks(Auto loaders gold loaded) and all sorts of other tanks that never made it from the blue print or a journal.   Get some Kursk action or battle of the bulge action..  so many good ww2 tanks  out there.  Why spend money on Prem tanks?

You like sitting in long queues to get into battles that are complete crap?

The very idea of trying to balance historical battles was inherently flawed, battles are not balanced, armies are not balanced. And within the game no one wanted to play the weaker tanks, everyone wanted to play the powerhouses. Unless you can convince the player base to be happy playing the weaker tanks in an historically inspired battle then they cannot ever happen.

And you would never get enough WoT players to play it. People don't play WoT for historical accuracy, they play it for the 15 minute battles, those two things are incompatible.

I think that no matter what tweaks you try, no version of historical battles could ever work in WoT (or in any arcade game).

It would have to be a bots battle like the tank sequences in call of duty. Nobody wants to fight realistic Tigers with realistic Shermans.

for those that never played it before, it was like 6 shermans vs 2 tigers.. never a even amount like 15 vs 15.   or T-34's vs panthers.. all we had were the america,german and russian tanks.    it wasn't bad and if any of you remember when the game first started, the game was really all used tanks before and during WW2 and no fantasy crap like now.. i remember good since i was a beta tester.

I find that having tigers fighting shermans is more than a little unfair. But what about having shermans fight panzer 3s and 4s and stugs?

It wasn't that bad but it could have been improved, instead of mostly M4s they could have more E2/E8s instead.  There are also more nations now so we could see more historical battle with nations other than German, Soviet, and American.

it was just a example of what was being used, but there were alot of different tank  battles going on.
