If you could add additional battle modes to the game, what would they be?

Duel arena mod, like a Quake or UT games.

With stacking up on armor, timing respawns of bonuses on the map and rocket jumps.

I would had back TBs.

 

But have to say that BR33K1_PAWAH Quake mode, if made with T49s, would be awesome! :D

I am playing only Standard battles, cant take the strategy fails and ignoring the objectives in Assault and Encounter. But there might be a simple mode, kind of a foolproof one.

I would call it Domination.

Make the two middle lines as "domination zones" (4-5 or E-F dependable if the bases are east-west or north-south).

Tank that is in the zone adds time to the total team timer. The team with the higher total wins (or wins by killing the enemy team ofc). 

Finetuning would be easy (put the timer cap, shorten the battle to 5-7-10 minutes, resize the domination zone, max 5 tanks in the zone that would count, whatever...).

Training room that you can enter by yourself. It's a very passive battle mode.

Considering all the talk they have done of late with upgraded servers and that they can run a PVE mode now at a larger scale vs before "homefront test". As the old PVE was low capped and low tier only. A 1K player cap on solo rooms should not be far fetched? As it's great just to explore a map on your own for 30min etc just to figure out locations if the map is new.

 

But add that and mix it up like console did and randomly place enemy idle tanks around the map so you can explore spotting locations. And see when you get spotted. Or just test the DPM and pen etc vs targets. As in just to test the tank and setup vs testing the map. So I would not say no to either one of those tbh.

Love Bora's domination idea, I'd also like a PvE mode like WoWs for when the [edited]are too oppressive :)

I had an idea, random teams, best of three where the same team can build and develop  strategy. AFK's would hurt a bit but it's just an idea :-)

PvE like in a AW. When I was frustrated because of RnG failure it was nice cool down in PvE

Frontline as a permanent mode,nowitisoverthe paint of random is just too high,and Team battles.

Whoever the idiot was who removed TB's should be taken out the back and shot.

Think not. It was an outdated game mode just link Tank Companies, wholly replaced by Skirmishes and advances, and of course CW. It simply lost any point being in the game anymore.

Instagib a la UT98.

 

On a more serious note, I had fun with the old 'national' battles. Just standard random battles with lineups from one nation only.

Frontlines rotated between tiers 6,7,8,9 weekly, so T6 Week 1, T7 Week 2 etc.

 

I guess though FL is a Marmite game mode, you either love it or hate it ....

Basically, I would like to see something similar to random battles, but with a way different system behind it.
A real ranked battle mode, that has an elo system, and has no "best loser", only the outcome of battle that matters. It could be multi-tier, like the current random. People would be matched based on their elo, and there should be different elo for different tiers, so people, who don't want to play tier 10 would still join in. It should be only available to tier 6+, or 8+ or whatever. The point would be to not limit it to one tier, like in the current ranked battle.
I know, one sided matches, 15-0s, etc would be still present, in the same number, but I would enjoy such a game mode, because current random battle gives no real purpose to play. The players must find their own purpose. I know some players like to set their own goals, but for me it would be cleaner if the game would provide one too.

Ranked Team Battle was pretty awesome.
I guess people in general didn't like it or WG thought it was too good....

I'd still get a sub 50% win rate. :hiding:
