I mean, why not? Use some existing maps for special missions with rearranged spawns. For example, Erlenberg can serve as basis for recreation of Operation Greif in two versions: attack for players owning the Panther/M10 or defence for players owning suitable USA tanks. Such novel PVE scenarios would also boost corresponding premium tank sales. WOT desperately needs some diversity nowadays.

WG, please do implement this (safe space) so that all the tin-foil hatters and "I lose because team is bad" players can go and derp about in peace.  I suggest making a separate forum for them to hang around in too.

Why not? Would be better to play against bots officially

than suffer in the garbage that is Random Battles today. 

I just feel so bored.

The challenge in the past was to outsmart the enemy.

Now the challenge is to get in a game with a few humans. 

PVE at least is honestly offering bots.

What we really need is game modes where newcomers can GRIND TO TIER 10 TANKS without ever playing PvP mode at all.

 The PvE in Armored Warfare was sometimes fun, but after a while it was getting boring. Knowing how the bots spawn and come was ruining the fun a little.

 But on the highest difficulty it required a good play from all those 5 guys playing, or you got overwhelmed by enemy tanks.

 But even in that PvE mode, having a 'tomato' in your team usually spelled defeat (on the highest difficulty). Because that guy was too stupid to memorize or to simply understand that the waves of bots spawn when you trigger a 'waypoint zone' - when you get in a specific location on the map.

 And those really bad players rushed all over the map like a headless chicken and managed to spawn all enemy bots = your team overwhelmed....

Also arty players received a lot of hate in that mode because they could not pull their own weight in the game: ''Why do you bring arty in PvE hard moron? We lose because of you!!!1!!''   And having 1 arty from 5 tanks really spelled defeat.

 

So don't hope this mode will be a 'safe-space' from tomatoes, unless they made it so you play alone vs bots.

Why not?

 

Would you expect to earn XP and credits in PvE?  Wouldn't seem like a good idea for players to turn up in Tier X without ever playing against other players before.

No, no, just no. Too evil. Don't even hint WG about this kind of possibility (Pärkeleen trolli!)

It would still be better quality gameplay than Random Battles are now. 

 

I just find it amazing how this game that has all the ingredients for being

both mentally stimulating and exciting is being murdered by manipulative MM.

They already tried a mode where only some tanks could be played. This belonged to a story behind this map then.

 

Nobody liked this gamemode so I doubt they will try to create it again.

Not so keen on facing your peers, huh?

That seems to be a common problem with you unicums :)

No one, you go also play PVE and farm bots .

And this will be the true 'Rubicon' - WoT becoming a single player game.:trollface:

The only changes to the matchmaker that is needed is this:

 

1) Place players with 50% and above winrate on teams with players within that group only

2) Place players with below 50% winrate on team with players within that group only.

3) Make it random which of the above the team the players are on meet in battle

4) At the beginning of each month the lowest performing 10% of the first group swithces group with an identical number of the best performing players from the second group.

5) Profit!

 

*Edit: Added another point.

we already have PVE, its called boot camp and after finishing boot camp I am happy to say PVE is boring.  I might complain about humans and wish eugenics were re instated but its better than AI bots.

 

Seriously tho, Wargaming programmers making a good AI?  LMFAO

WoWs have quite nice missions going on which is PvE focused, doing something similar for WoT would be interesting. Throwing a bunch of bots on our existing maps and putting them against players would be nice for newcomers and less skilled players, but not something that would keep me all that interested over a long period of time, especially if it's done like in AW since I enjoy the randomness of a player opponent a lot more then the predictability of an AI, at least an AI controlling tanks in a game.

I'm not a unicum. and yeah I'd rather pick fights with disabled kids than with bigger guys than me, that's just common sense

I for one support our Hamster overlord and his suggestion.

PVE would allow all the game modes ,that wouldn't work in PvP, Nation vs Nation for instance and we could get all the maps back which - according to forumites - are to imbalanced in PvP. 

 

So yeah, gib PvE WG!!

Can you imagine the hilarious posts qp would make complaining about his new mode?  It would be worth having it just to see what dross he came up with.
