Special fun game modes?

Chaffee racing? Moonballs? 

Pixel tenks? The list goes on. 

No harm in repeating them occasionally!!!

Because, introducing more non-needed and "OP" Premium tanks is more important...

Same reason why we don't have create competitions anymore with decent prizes: Wargaming has their customer base and their income, they don't really give a damn anymore.

These are already created things though. It would cost them next to nothing to repeat them occasionally and would make players happy. Happy players are more likely to spend. 

 

Anything with a decent prize is a different matter. That both gives something for free and also increases expectations of future things for free, and while that makes people happy, it also tends to reduce sales, since people start waiting for expected free things instead of spending.

You use logic when there is none.

With all 'em corridor maps the whole game has become a 'special' mode based on Pac-man. :P  But don't tell anyone I said that, I want to maintain plausible deniability. :B

Players who are having fun are players who are not spending money.

They also have virtually no competition in this space now, so it's basically gg.

So you are saying that only people who hate the game are spending on it? Or that no one is?

Not players who hate the game; players who like the game but are getting frustrated and hoping for better results with a shiny new OPremium.

That's old news, just look at Himmelsdorf and Stalingrad.

I enjoyed the Chaffee racing and- because it allowed you to train an entire crew- I got a 100% first skill/perk crew for future use in US arty. If it was re-introduced, it would be nice to see a couple of different circuits. The Winter, 8-bit, mode also brought me three crews with 1st skill/perk, but I wouldn't really care if it didn't come back.

 

I didn't play Karl much and twice I have failed epically at the soccer mode, so I won't be sorry if that never comes back. The moonballs was just that: balls, and after just a few games I tried to forget that it even existed.

 

The WWI battle mode was the most recent, iirc and, likewise, a couple of battles and that was that. It's a shame, because I have used the four-man crew in the Centurion I, and I could really use sixth sense!

I believe WG has stated that fun modes won't return because they would need to be reworked/rewritten for the new physics. It's too bad - those fun modes were a nice break from standard gamepay.

Seriously? How can you possibly miss that *Edited? WG should stop making these *Edited modes nobody gives *Edited about and concentrate on fixing the *Edited game itself.

For me the only one that really worked was Chaffee racing. I would guess that it would no longer work with the new physics and thus would re-coding. For this reason I guess it will not be brought back because WG have other matters to spend Dev time on.

Yep. More broken premium tanks and rebalancing tanks by giving them impenetrable front armor.
