A step in the right direction, looking forward to this game mode!

Oh just imagine the battle where MM teams up 14 bots in 7vs7  :trollface:
Edit: Seems like I need to separate the real statement and sarcasm from now on...

Why waste time on this when company battles already have such feature?

Yes, highly anticipated, thank you WG. I think many players will look forward to this option. Coming together in a TS room, listening to the music bot and playing a semi TC with friends is an awesome idea.

I just realized that you can't have 7 players with everyone having tier 8 tanks. Or is this part of the idea? Like, lower tier scout included or arty?

It seems to be a step in trying to cater for those players who do not have the social connections in WoT to form a good Tank Company.
Fair enough, I see nothing bad in this. The only thing I will say is that when random players do form a team in this and they are pitted against an organized clan team it's gonna be just more souls for the taking...

This is working as it should yeah, it will make it more important to spend some time on deciding how to make the setup of tanks as versatile as possible :).

Not very good for people with second accounts, I'm glad I didn't start second account just for XX stats :D

so basically a bigger platoon which will only have your platoon as team with skilled based MM. that should fix those moments you have 4 to 5 people online that want to platoon but can't.

gona use this mode a lot if it allowes completion of achievments and missions.

''The key feature of this game mode is that the battles will be conducted between teams of similar skill levels. A special software mechanic will be used to calculate the various parameters for players and teams. This means the mode will be interesting, both for beginners who will be able to compete with players of their own level, and for veterans who will also easily find worthy opponents.''

They could add that enhanced MM to Standard battles as well  :smile:

So you slightly changed TC and call it new battle mode?  :facepalm:
Where is the invention and inovative thinking?
Edit: It could have been something completely different, ie. garage battles, historical battles, battle missions with NPCs - something refreshing, something new. Negrep me as you want, but this is just variation on overused and only one WoT concept X vs X players on random map.

Considering how much some people insist on implementing ranked MM and the general WOT forum spirit, I guess main whine about this feature is that it won't let you pwn noobs as it forces you to play against "good players."  :teethhappy:
