New Game Mode!!!

Money Grind Mode!!!

 

Player selects T8 Prem. Selects Money Grind Mode from options (randoms, team battles, SH, Team Training, etc) and gets put into a queue unique to T8 prems.

This mode would have a higher queue time, and would remove many tier 8 premium tanks from the regular queue, thus creating more same tier and +1 -1 MM's, and more same tier matches.  (which would also help tier 10 players get same tier games, boosting bond grinding)

 

Non-Clan players get their Money Grinding boosted without having to join a clan, and T8 prems become much more desirable for all players, since they would have an option to play randoms in a same tier scenario, and get silver for a t10 in 1 day easy.

 

Rough draft here, refinements may be needed, but this would probably go a long way to also help people grinding their t8 standard tanks as well.

 

Thoughts?

lol.

 

Only 1 million now, but I always buy 500-600 each on prem consumables and stock up on equipment when on sale for tank rebuy's so I can ""reroll"" on them and improve my stats.

I am a sick collector until recently as well, so when I do rebuy a tank, I have the premium tanks to train a crew right quick.

 

I like new modes of games, and think this would be a great mode that would be a huge hit with the playerbase..

I dont want such game mode unless they sell defenders. Plus it would be horribly frequented

Wouldn't mind it, but it won't happen. Wargaming wants Steve the IS-7 driver to have plenty of T8s to smack around. Also, it's "fun and varied gameplay", according to certain Forumites. :)

You actually think that the defender/252u wont be sold again?

Personally, I am po'ed at myself for not buying both like I did with the trump tank and the t26e5.

 

I would be willing to wager that the Defender gets sold again.  WG realizes that putting that tank on sale means 20k-40k sales.  EZ money.

Just play team battles in a tier VIII premium. No need for another game mode that people can use as an excuse to spam premium ammo.

 

Plenty of open teams out there and you can earn massive credits very quickly if you find a decent team.

 

Edit: The defender WILL be sold again....as soon as they've figured out a new OP russian tenk which will change the meta again.

​Obviously the likelihood that Minsk dev's read this suggestion post, and say, DA!!!  Give DA_ZOHAN some Vodka Comrade!!!  Ve Do Zis!!!! is miniscule (as in nano chance) at best.

But still, I think it is a good idea.

Current t8 premium tanks seems pretty weak for this mode. Add more pen, armor, dpm and mobility. Nao.

True.

There are only really 4-5 truly strong T8 prems, the rest are decent to horribad.

But this mode would in fact offer something new.

How exactly would that lead to less bottomtier matches for the other tVIII tanks?

I'd say that would cause MORE, because there are less tanks available...

Note I said higher queue times.

Personally, I would trade 30-45 more seconds in the queue for better MM for both money grind, and t8 grind.

The idea is fine, the problem is that it messes with the idea of 'play4fun' T10 players being able to get that occasionally awesome game of stomping T8s around to stay happy with WoT.

 

Your best bet at the moment is Team Battles. You earn a fair bit of credits even on a loss in that mode, and you have what is arguably the ultimate TB tank - the 252. Find some random team to try it with. If you like it and can shut up and follow orders, you can try finding more organized teams. Totally random matchmaking, few 'topped' teams; tactics and dicipline are more important than skill alone.

Sure it will.

 

But having a game mode with tomatoes vs defenders platoons farming leaving less tier 8 for regular MM would probably turn for the worse.

 

I would be happy if they revert the nerf to premium income, that would be enough. :coin:

So you want an event to cover your collecting addiction? Well I've made over a million on selling large repair kits and food the past few weeks. I don't even use many of them. Not a single tank has automatic extinguishers even.

Fun fact, premium tanks have extra income.

That's why you buy a tier 8 light. 1K on ammo, 3K on repairs.... 100K on 1K damage and 2.5K assist. Not a prem med that needs 50K on ammo to even work. I have over 12 million now, and I bought a tier 9 yesterday. Don't spend it all at the same place and it works out.

It would mean regular tier 8 tanks being bottom tier even more often as there are less of them to fill the 7 slots in battle tier 10 battles.
