If you thought I'm mad, I'm not.
I'm actually really excited/glad to see this feature being added. FINALLY HISTORICAL BATTLES!!!! It will truly be amazing to be fight in a realistic nation based battle. That is actually the type of immersion based gameplay I've been dreaming of. National crew voices was a big step up in immersion, but this looking to be a great new addition.

THE CRAZY PART IS.....
This game has been exclusively multiplayer for the past 3 YEARS on console (Longer on PC) then less than one week before release...
"Hey, uh..., heres this single-player campaign mode thing that comes out Tuesday" - WarGaming

Where did this even come from?! Did I miss some earlier release info or what? This is sort of big news to casually fart out less than a week of release, no?



P.S. YEAH I KNOW PROVING GROUNDS IS SINGLE-PLAYER. It just doesn't have any story and I rarely have the interest to play it. I don't even think I've played them all

I have very low hopes that this mode isn't just Proving Grounds Plus.

 

 

We'll see.

Bad idea from WG. They are just putting their resources in the wrong places again and again.

We want balance in the game.. Nit single player options

This is a MULTIPLAYER GAME. Fix the MULTIPLAYER side of it first.. Then work on these crappy side projects.

Or just Reskin more tanks... Ya know. That people don't want.. God forbid you make your game better...

So putting in a single player mode that would work as a good tutorial for new players is a bad thing?

 

Pretty sure that MIGHT help the complaints of teammates ability to play on MULTIPLAYER

If it hurts the multiplayer population it is.

If it turns put to be proving grounds 1.1 its a bad thing. Because lets be honest. PG doesnt teach anything. This is another grab that will only best thin air.

WG don't seem to be able to get their heads outta their asses.

JUST BALANCE THE MULTIPLAYER FFS

I mean... this game came out on console 3 years after it did on PC, so it's pretty reasonable that they'd be behind them so far on some issues. I think they are doing pretty well with balances and releases of non-reskin tanks. They just released 3 new tanks in the beast of war update.

I think this is a great way to ease newbs into the game without throwing them to the wolves in public matches. I think this is a great way to get a whole new generation introduced and hooked to the game. 

 

Will I play it? Hell no. Well, maybe if I'm drunk.

Huh, they updated the forum banner...

 

I'm going to hold off my judgement of this new mode until it gets here and I can play it for myself.

 

Could be good or bad...just have to wait and see.

They haven't balanced anything.
We still have hesh pen dumb high. We still have the waffle. We still have 850 alpha at tier 10, arty still regularly 1 shots people.

That's to name 4 of them. There are MANY more. They just need to stop the dumb [edited]and fix the game with a full balance. I realise its a lot of work, but if they don't, these crap sideshows wont help bring more people in to spend more money. It'll drive the paying customers away due to lack of intent from the company.

Well, I'd consider a lot of players to be similar to brain dead AI, so it might help.

Just want to mention again that a certain amount of the player base will love these solo campaigns.  Sometimes I just want to grab a Scotch, sit down and blow stuff up in a virtual tank.  Been stressed out all day and don't want to interact with anyone on a game.  So for some  it's single player>multi player at times. How can you not be in favor of having the option?

 

Also, adding a single player experience is probably a better way to attract new players (this is a business) than other things they could do.

Finally, anything that could help develop players and let them practice before getting into seal club zone is good for the game.

I'm mildly interested, but I'm probably going to still only play random battles. But good for them for adding content.

wow dude. So much negativity. Honestly from reading this "balance" to you sounds like never receiving big hits. While I agree with you about how frustrating it is getting hit hard. I disagree with the idea that balance means that despite some super long reload times no tank should be able to wreck another in one or two shots. It is the variety of tactics needed to eliminate each opponent that makes this game challenging.

There has to be bad players for there to be good players.

WG Balance 101, If a tank has a high survival rate, nerf its gun.
