This would be useful for the Grand Battle maps as well. They pop up so rarely for me that it's really hard to get good map knowledge on them. Sure I have a basic understanding on how to play on them, but some ideas with neat firing lanes and positions would be welcome.

Topography Mode, day 63: The first AI bot on the easiest map has gained sentience and declared it shall finally stop killing Miepie, allowing him to progress to the next target out of pity. :D

Will these be proper bots or the usual laser-guided weakpoint-seeking ones?

 

Also, I'm glad that WG is finally wising up that their game is less intuitive for new players than trying to program a website in Assembly, but how about you fix the balance, tier differences and powercreep? If you did that right, players could learn the map while playing, rather than finding out the hard way which players invested too much time in this game?

Looking forward to trying this as never did get around to creating a 2nd account so I could train with myself on the maps.

Going by what I've seen of people testing this on CT they are more like dummies with laser pointers for showing usual camper positions than bots that actually play.

I think this seems like a good idea, sadly it should have been introduced years ago,

Don't forget to try this mode as soon as it's available, because Wargaming is likely to pull a plug on it again after a day or so.

Who Can Participate?

Everyone is welcome! However, since new players need the navigation training the most, preference will be given to them. This means that if too many players are looking to play the Topography mode at the same time, a queue will be activated, and newcomers will be the first to enter.

 

Why not make the solo mode client-based, so it doesn't take up server resources or need a queue.
