Maybe its Fun To Make A Night Map And Than You Can Use Your Lighting On Your Tank So Its A little bit harder to play so maybe this is a good idea.

Nobody in their right mind will turn on lights to find a target during a night battle. It's like painting a huge crosshair on your tank.

75% of the people in this freaking game cant find their *snip* in broad daylight and you want a night mode?

I Don't Think This Would Be A Good Idea. Why Would You Turn On Your Lights In A Night Battle, Would'nt The Enemy See You Faster Than Without Lights? :bush:

 

Damn, typing every word with a capital letter is so 2016-early 2017. :hiding:

"put out that bloody cigarette"  famous quote from a WW1 soldier seconds before getting hit in the head by a sniper..

that's how I imagine turning on lights on a tank during a night battle.

would work with random or player operated search lights, kind of scouting job, light up the target so the team can shoot

I don't see how it'd be harder to play except for the possibility of eye strain. The game puts an icon and other details above every spotted tank and you get a glowing outline when you put your crosshairs over them. Being dark would only cause problems in seeing if they're behind cover.

Pitchblack night in the country, no moon to be seen.

Suddenly between some bushes shine two bright lights.

I wonder where the enemy is :sceptic:

You know what else is fun? Using the SEARCH feature of this forum and NOT create yet another useless thread like this.

I don't know, I never delved into AW camo mechanics.

Plus it is WG we are talking about.

"Using your lights on a night map now lowers your camo rating by 20%" wouldn't be a surprising line to see in a patch note.

I would like to see weather mechanics and light levels which affect everyone's view range, like the cyclone in WoWS.

 

IMO you could probably pull off a moon-lit night map with just a decrease in view range without having to resort to lights.

Or a sandstorm version of a desert map.

 

It would at least make the map rotation a bit more interesting, as WG dont seem to like designing new maps.

Wargaming almost a year ago now announced the revival of all the current maps into HD form. They have all been completely reworked and after playing the test server I can tell you the vast majority feel like compleely new maps.

 

Still people complain they want new maps. :facepalm:

I have seen them too and they look fine. My main issue is the number of them, there arent enough to provide an interesting pool without getting multiples of the same in a row
