Just like last time.

Everybody picks a Russian tank and the outcome is 90% sure.

I want them back as well, they were interesting to play especially with the restrictions on ammo...

  Unfortunately very few wanted to end up say in the PZII facing a Matilda or Everyone wanted to be in a KV...

So the only way it could work is to remove player choice on what tank to play ie Tank selection is random so everyone has a chance to be in that Tiger Tank against T34's or Shermans.. That's really what alot of player actaully want..

 Or maybe agianst Bots, PVE Historical battles.. With levels like in a event or mission after the Personel Missions, Better yet as a part of Skirmish mode PVE against bots in a limited event-Campaigns for example ..

I think confrontation battles were some of the most ridiculously one sided battles I ever played in.

Would be fun to have nation based battles. Deutsche panzers alongside Soviet tincans doesn't really make any sense. But in order for it to work, they'd need to put much more effort into balancing those overperforming tincans properly.

It did not work as some have TD's balanced around camo and view range, vs armor and alpha that were slow too. Or support HT's vs brawlers, or med flankers vs sluggers. It just gave one team a huge advandage right off the bat. And most played the same tanks in hopes of getting that mode. So tier 6 was full of pre-nerf Hellcats that sat back and farmed anything that pushed. Or T29's that went up vs Tigers that had no chance up close with its flat armor etc. It was a mess.

It would be nice if it were only with tanks that fought in WW2 and if the number of tanks of each type were, in proportion, realistic.

Actually I did, but admittedly apart from my own vehicle I never saw another Pz.II in my Tobruk matches. Choosing the lowest tiered vehicle greatly increased your chances to actually get a slot in one of the few battles.

Although to be honest when the Historical mode happened I simply wasn't advanced very far on the tech trees so often enough I had to choose the lower tier tanks by sheer necessity (that my account lacks the commemorative token for Operation Spring Awakening is due to the reason that back then I couldn't unlock the T-34 fast enough before they took that mission down :()

Considering how he has spammed them in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if 1/3 of the recent threads in Gameplay section would be all his :trollface:

 

EDIT: As for the topic itself, the nation v nation battle was a huge failure. Hopefully it never comes back without severe reworks, and right now there's so many more interesting things they could add before nation v nation battles.

What is it you want....nation vs nation (Confrontation mode) or historical battles?  Not the same thing.

They were removed because of balance problems. 15 T29 vs 15 Tigers. :facepalm:

Never ever seen that happen...did we even have +0 MM then? :facepalm:

Maybe do something about unbalanced tanks ...just a tip. Object 268 Version 4 winrate 53,7%! or Object 430 winrate 52,7%...but no.....Russian players complain and no nerfs.  pfff 

Or Kanonenjagdpanzer with winrate of 45%......yes great balance here.

I loved them briefly but only because we had them for only such a brief time. I had no problems with them either. (Yes, I prolly mostly played Russian tanks...)  If the mode had some problems the least they could do is bring them back as some kind of a PvE mode with tinkered AI to help the tanks of lesser nations who struggled against the might of the Soviet tankists.

There were nation vs nation battles.

Turned out to be very unbalanced. (Because of certain nations' certain tanks at certain level were over- or underpowered.)

WG's solution: - instead of balancing tanks properly, - removing nation vs nation battle mode.

Which imo was the better choice since confrontation was just randoms with less variety.

I liked historical battles mode, which I know was not very popular. It also had relatively long queue times.

I recall a number of matches on Sand River between German and UK teams. I tired STUG, a Pz, Matilda, and Valentine. My favourite in historical mode was the Valentine.

 

I do not recall bothering to fight in the Nation vs Nation battles. The mode was called Confrontation and came out in patch 8.11 and disappeared in patch 9.0 so not really a huge success.

 

I wish that WG could redo historical battles, although I appreciate that it would be a huge amount of work for them and so unlikely to occur.
