I haven't played this game for over year, and the few times I log on I quickly remember why I quit playing, campy maps, bad map design, artillery, stun, OP tanks. But mostly how limited your influence on a 15v15 battle is as one player. And the lack of a ranked mode with a proper ELO system doesn't make things better either. 


But now I logged and I have played this 7v7 mode and it is absolutely fantastic. There is so much impact your personal level of skill can have on this mode since it is 7v7, it feels very rewarding for good intelligent plays. Also it's not a complete and utter mess that 15v15 mode is, and the maps feel so large and there  is so much free space to utilize and to make creative flanks and plays in general. For once in a very long time wot feels more fun than downright frustrating. 


I highly suggest you make 7v7 permanent, it might be a game changer for wot, bring in a whole new playerbase or make old disgruntled players come back. 


What I feel wot also lacks is a proper competitive mode, 15v15 competetive is just a mess and there is only so much impact you can have as a player, the ELO system is also absolutely garbage, encouraging stat farming to avoid losing ELO rather than encouraging to win. A 7v7 competetive mode with a proper win-loss ELO system would for the first time ever introduce this game to a proper competitive game mode, and this could attract players from a whole range of other competitive games such as CS:GO, League of legends, etc. 


I think this 7v7 mode is the best that has ever happened this game and they should develop it into a full fledged competitive mode.

No, no and no. 7v7 is the single worst game mode that has ever been put in the game, literally ever. 

There is no personal skill involved at all apart from which overpowered vehicle you might own. It's a capping rushfest and is worse than even historical battles.

I am not sure about ranked 7X7 as everyone will just pick the most OP crapever. They should make all future events 7x7 format though because its fun af. Like no one wants to play a tier 1 shitter that is modified with 1k hp and 100 dmg per shot like they did for halloween or the AI mode.

Tbh... 7 vs 7 ranked might be more "controlled" and fun for more people. Then the 15 vs 15 mess they had before that was really a turn off for most.

7v7 games last like 3 minutes, It's a big Yolo rush with little to no thinking. This fast paced nonsense is what drives players away.

It would be interesting to have Ranked Battles tier X in the 7v7 format , you would avoid the stupid chaos of the 15v15 format and you would have less toxicity and greater team play, excellent proposal in my opinion.

I am not convinced, however, that the WG can do it because a 7v7 format would greatly lengthen the waiting times for the battles given the reduced format.


As for the 7v7 team battles, their return would be welcome, even today I wonder why the heck they were removed, there was no real reason imo to remove them.
