I'm not the one who complains about battles, teams, etc but, What. The. Hell.

For the record, I was driving a slow [edited]KV-2 and they all stayed there for the whole match... if you couldn't already tell, we lost, by a landslide.

I've never in my life been so amazed by my team for the completely wrong reason other than this. This was the grand plan that would win them the game:

Is this me being salty? Probably, I did lose after all a bunch of progress of marking my tank since I didn't last very long when I saw I was completely alone and I was way to slow to be able to retreat.

Turn off these modes, play just standard random. I don't say that you can't meet with lemming trains there but at least it is less boring.

Prokhorovka. I went to the middle, the fourteen other tanks on my team occupied the four grid squares in the bottom right corner of the map. Yes, all of them.

I win.

Sounds crazy, but if you had only one tank in the middle, under the enemy base you would have won 100%.

Having recently turned assault/encounter back on again, for a bit of variety you know.....

One of the first battles I had was on this very map, we were the attacking team.

I was, well, amazed at the number of tanks that went to the balcony and just sat there, very similar to your screen grab.

Maybe some don't realise THEY have to attack to win, what's even funnier is when some say 'defend the base'.....

One of the reasons I turned of Assault.. In my opinion defenders are in advantage, but since it is not clan wars u will have ppl not moving when attacking, like this, or yoloing when they need to hold.. I gave up on this long a go, but like Jakobsson said Karelia Assault can be very nice..shame

XVM? if you mean that, I couldn't care less of it since I personally have turned off the "win chance" option since I've realized I just play worse with it. I've tried multiple times to also hide player skills in the scoreboard since I don't care about that either. My mindset is "a tomato in a JgPz E-100 is still a JgPz E-100 with a gun that can deal 1k dmg."

The thing HP thing on the minimap though? Helps quite a bit since I can see clearly when we are losing or winning which stops me from becoming too "campy" or too confident in the wrong situation since sometimes a 5-2 can still be us losing HP-wise. Helps A LOT when you are trying to mark tanks to increase your average dmg per game.

No, I'm saying that just turn off assault and encounter modes. I have never installed XVM, so I don't know anything about it.

If you want to 3moe your tank you should be looking at how the team deploys from the very start. It's all well and good to blame the team ( yes that is a bad team) but you should have realised you were alone on that flank long before you were unable to retreat. We all suffer bad teams when trying to mark tanks, it's how you deal with it that matters. 

I also only play standard random battles as others have suggested and if i see a flank left open i don't go and try to defend it alone.

Oh sorry, just saw that I misread "modes" as "mods", my mistake. But yeah, I most often enjoy these modes since they give the gameplay some kind of diversity but sometimes it can be hella annoying when things like this happen.

I turned them off thanks to situations like you have shown at the original post. Attackers sitting at starting point can be very boring and annoying. In simple random battles teams are more active, at least in most cases.

Yeah, I realized that way too late though. The problem was that I tabbed out for 30 seconds while on auto-drive since I had to look at something and I never expected the whole team to stay at spawn since we were the attackers, I mean this has never happened to me before.

I do know about the whole "don't go somewhere alone" though, especially since I'm a KV-2. Again, this has never happened to me before on this gamemode so I really did not expect this to happen.

Even then, I thought I could get to the flank before the enemy and at least hold them up and farm some dmg but the enemy surprisingly managed to reach the top of the hill before me, so that plan went into the trash bin. I'm still surprised by this cause most of the time, the defenders aren't this aggressive at the start.

I do know this is partially my fault, but you can't blame me for never expecting the whole team, as attackers, to stay in spawn.

Yeah, I can definitely see why many people turn them off, but even when I have bs games like these, I still find the change-up a bit more enjoyable than the same gamemode with the same maps, again & again.

When I play random I expect nothing less than garbage experiences. It seems to be the meta
