Hello,

 

I have a good new team mode suggestion., platoon battles


 

a 3 v 3 game mode , for only tier 5 for novice, tier 7 for intermediate and tier 9 for advanced


 

its only on Small maps such as Mines. You all select 3 tanks from that tier and battle out till no one left. After each tank is destroyed you have to wait 30 seconds to respawn with your next selected tank. Side wins when all tanks are destroyed from enemy or when there are no enemy tanks at one given time.

 

No bases but a middle white base to capture
 

For example if I select my 3 tanks to be Archer, Churchill 3 and a Matilda Black prince, I first go out in Archer then once I die I get sent in the second tank I picked. You don't get to choose what tank after you die to make it more interesting


 

This would be a brilliant game mode and add to the variety. Would also give tier 5 , 7 and 9 some love


 

I know its a good suggestion :)

Problem, is making a new game mode takes time and effort from WG. I'd rather see them spend time on more usefull features of the game than in a game only one player will be playing cause he's the only one finding it funny. Get it ?

This would not effect your score or win rate, it will be a separate tab

Something similar like OP proposed used to be around, the tournament thingies with small teams, it included a 3 vs 3. was mainly popular for the prizes, but not much else. Also revealed that competitive 3 man teams tend to stick with certain group of tanks & all the rest didn't really matter.

This is correct.

It used to be run by ESL and so no mods were permitted.

I played in a regular team.

The only reason we played was that the gold rewards were easy to come by, even then there were very few players and we used to get "bys" past rounds where no enemy team attended.

I think we had seven players in the team, to ensure that we could put up three in the evening.

The whole thing died because not enough players wanted to play three vs three.

Shame really it was easy gold.

There isn't really anything new about your idea. It's just combining 3v3 tournaments (which still exist) with the old Steel Hunt mechanics for respawns.

I don't see much potential for this. We already have tournaments for 3v3 gameplay, and Frontline for respawn mechanics.

After each tank is destroyed you have to wait 30 seconds to respawn with your next selected tank. Side wins when all tanks are destroyed from enemy or when there are no enemy tanks at one given time.

This would be a brilliant game mode and add to the variety.

 

Sounds rather like a highly frustrating mode that promotes camping. Having to wait 30s for respawn is very annoying (which is why WG is reducing that delay in Frontline), and if you then spawn in a slow tank you may also have to drive for like a minute to get back to the enemy if you were trying to attack. In that time most likely your teammates will get rushed and die, and then you'll arrive at the enemy alone and die again. It's already bad enough in Frontline where you have 29 teammates, with just two it will be way worse.

 

And you won't see a large variety in tanks played: At T5 you'll have T67/Wolverine/the new french thingy, O-I Exp and derp mediums, at T7 it will be mostly O-Ni and T29s with some Tigers in between, only at T9 we'll probably see a larger selection as there are no clearly dominating tanks there.

 

How about you try some 3v3 tournaments to actually see how that stuff plays first?

Hmm WG making yet another fail-mode that no one plays?

Maybe.

But I hope not.
