"When it takes too long to assign a player to a battle, the matchmaker may add extra Battle Modes to those you’ve marked. If the wait takes more than 50 seconds, you’ll enter the first available match in any mode"

Why is this a thing? I have assault and grand battles disabled for a reason. Just when i thought this update couldnt get any worse.. 

 

Oh and dont forget some people have performance issues with certain game modes, mainly grand battles..

Just think how much worse it would have been if you'd actually got into a grand battle instead of just complaining about the possibility (however small) of it happening

Practically no possibility of it adding these modes. From what I understand it puts all players in all selected queues already; chances are it won't make an assault game because all those players are also in the standard battle mode.

 

Oh, and with this change I'm looking forward to Wargaming adding the option to unselecti standard mode as well. With this change, there's no reason not to include it as an option- worst-case it'll find a standard battle after 50s if there are no assault/encounter ready.

But wait.. you cant unchecked standard mode :amazed:

Priceless change by WG.

I am just waiting for a patch that have following clause.

"The server may take control of your tank and drive it to the appropriate area of the map if it seems you are playing your tank 'wrong'"

I guess the lesson here is exit battle at 49 seconds if it ever gets there.

I think we should be fine, can't remember the last time I was in a queue for that long. Folks on the less populated servers, like NA on the other hand...

Sounds hilarious :D

 

That moment when you're on 94.9% MoE and you think, "oh yes i go city!", but server says "nope" and drives your tank into field next to Steve the IS-7 driver who waits for the enemy scout to arrive :D

Wargaming is just so... I dont even have the right word... dumb maybe? Like propper stupid, like if WG would be a person its father would have dropped it one to many times as a baby.

Why even give the option to select which modes to play when they are more or less fake.

 

This patch. Its a true pearl of a patch.

My personal guess at this point: Instead of the drunk developers the vodka bottle itself came to life and took over.

The server won't need to anything judging from all the armchair Rommels I've seen playing that are quick to tell you whenever you're doing it wrong, often by shooting you themselves. These are the players who think "passive scouting" means going AFK.

Sadly. I meant to write that there's no reason not to add the option to unselect standard mode if one so deserves - since the MM is allowed to enter you into other gamemodes as well.

 

While assault and encounter can have some really weird teams/outcomes, there are a lot of maps that only exists in standard that I don't like - that's why I have the alternate modes enabled. The ones that have multiple modes are generally better as non-standard. I.e. there's a lower chance of getting some of the less brilliant maps. Mountain pass, for instance. Ew. Your opinion may wary.

Not seen other modes yet as I have them both off. Tho I've not had to wait for 50+ seconds yet either. And if you do wait for that long. Going in and out of wait will reset the counter still preventing the MM from picking other "modes".

 

Then again there is nothing saying that the new formula works for us that has them disabled or not. Or if it's just for those with them on etc.

It could be a way to please those I think.

 

They are always saying 'heavies must go there, medium there and so on'.

With my mentioned idea, all tanks would behave just as the armchair general hummel wants.

Win-win?

Ummm... is this part of the attempt to fix the current 3/5/7 MM issues at tier 8? 

They said they would try to shift more tier 10 out of random to increase the chances of a decent tier 8 game.

 

As others have said, I have those modes disabled for a reason, and that reason is I suck at them.  Don't need WG to make my life even worse in game thanks.

Nah, it'll be rejected in testing when all the super-heavy drivers complain that they're unable to spend the first five minutes of a battle climbing the hill on Himmelsdorf.
