But but but, we are a fun-clan, not a competitive clan! That was the beauty to some of our clan members that it was a fun mode to do once in while as a break from Randoms.

 

Tournaments? No thx. 

Stronghold? Again, no thx

Frontline? 1 week per month, and not even remotely similar to TBs

Ranked? The gold spamming campfest at Tier X? Didnt know you could do 7 vs 7 in that mode...

 

I didnt play TBs, but I know many in my clan were always looking forward to playing it. Some even logged on to the game just for that mode. Reading our clan chat afterwards always made me smile, since these guys had FUN. No matter if they won or lost - FUN. 

 

Crap move WG

 

As far as I can see it's the old 3-2-1-battle synched platoons and see how people complain about it ruining randoms when 200 of us do that.

One of the worst decicions WG made in the history of WoT imho.

 

Plenty of people were having FUN in this game mode!!

Achievement unlocked: p'ssed off one of the largest and most vocal communities in the game. Bravo!

 

Seriously, I've never seen this many ticked off Dingers. It's quite the thing.

Mates, if you want to play some battles just for fun & training purpose (as you say), there is still the "Training Battles" mod, you can do whatever you want/like there, without the fear to harm your stats (neither to make them better).

So you guys decided to discontinue the Team Battle mode the best way for people to get some credits FAST... OK i don't mind. But! why i were unable to play for about 1 hour because of some problems that you had with the servers??? and i didn't get nothing just wasted the time? P.S. Before trying to ban me note my stats that i have got in about 18 months by playing this game of WG (IN RANDOM BATTLE MODE). And i could become a good face of WG at all social medias. But when you guys are trying to get the last penny from the players... You! should look BACK! nowadays there is like 70% premium tanks in all tier battles... I guess you should figure out that. NO the 70%~ of players aren't playing with premium tanks just for fun... THEY GOT NO TIME.  I had some time and i managed to research 330 tanks in a 18 month~ period! But all other players may have some work studies ETC... That's why they playing with premium tanks. But if you will take a chance from people like me to play for fun... There will be no people who will gonna play vs equal tanks that can use SPECIAL AMMO and pen more of the time and in the end you will loose even those 70%~ peoples who is playing mostly with PREMIUM TANKS because of time limit. Everyone wanna get some fun from every game! You guys made allot of good stuff but try not to mess up with the 30%~ of players that is creating the 98%~ of online. P.S. By writing GUYS i meant to write  Female/Male... Because i know that there is allot of cool female game creators in a WG/WoT team... Sincerely yours AngryBot365

Bad decision.

I hope you reconsider this. There are plenty of fans of this mode.

Worst decision ever made by Wargaming. One of the few things that was actually fun and nice in the game gets removed.

Nope, we can get 200 of us on teamspeak to click battle together and see how you like being in a random battle with 29 Dingers.

 

I appreciate you didn't like the mode and would appreciate you staying out of the conversation.

Hi everyone, I feel as if over the years I've seen all the ups and downs in this game and I can't say how far we've come but having witnessed game modes such as Tank Company Battles and Ranked Team Battles removed I feel as if Wargaming are killing every little bit of fun in this game. I'm only 16 and so proud to play this game, when I see youtube vids sponsored by WG I'm really pleased to see it! I just don't see why you'd make this move. I've spend so many hours making friends and having fun, just joking around in this game mode. PLEASE DON'T REMOVE THIS or else you'll lose even more fanbase and maybe even very dedicated players such as me. Just add a few rewards like gold, XP and credits that are available for players of all levels whilst removing the massive PR points up for grabs. It's not that complicated!!!!!!!!

After removing company and changing skirmishes you are now removing the last non competitive team mode. If you really want to offer an alternative introduce a new gamemode which doesn't force you into tryhard battles, where you can spend a relaxed evening with some friends.


But please give us an option which does not force you into a predefined tryhard setup. (You could also do this by removing the Skill-MM in Skirmishes or nerfing some T8 prems)

Think you are going to stop a large number of players playing in competitive games - we are not all unicum players nor do we want to hand out a ridiculous amount of credits on a loss in advances or global maps. The team battles allowed players who haven't played as a team to get used to playing alongside clan mates and the scope of the map wasn't really an issue. I for one have no interest in either front line, global maps or 30v 30. I will do tier x advances at a push - anything else is now firmly aimed at the bigger clans and pro players. I have a life outside of WOT which dictates that I am at best an average player. I'm now an average player who won't be contributing as much in resources to the clan! Thanks WG!!!!!  :-(

it's all an elaborate ruse to lure you into a false sense of security before the onslaught begun!

Uh oh...I know quite a few Dingers that are gonna be pretty unhappy about this... :(

 

I understand the frustration many people like yourself feel. Overall, the game mode has gone the same way as historical battles, unfortunately, upkeep and maintaining an unpopular game mode overall vs the entire player base makes it difficult when those resources could be focused elsewhere. This is the only other reasoning I can give you outside of those mentioned in the article, unfortunately.

Team Battles are bad. Get your clans into real modes like CW.

That's a valid argument, but it still takes the last game mode away from us, which did not force you to tryhard and was able to be played whenever you want.
