All I've seemingly seen the last 3 weeks is Encounter mode

 

~2 weeks you've played:

  • 248 Standard Battles
  • 40 Encounter
  • 15 Assault
  • 22 Team Destruction

Encounter only had a 15% chance and Assault is at a 5% chance. They are already really low frequency. :honoring:

 

Checked your map history and seeing the last 27 matches played are:

- 18 Standard Battle

- 5 Encounter

- 1 Assault

- 3 Team Destruction

 

18+5+1+3 = 27 

If 18 were standard games, it means that 1/3rd of his battles were NOT standard.   That is WAY too many....and I won't even get into map rotation.  

 

I play a lot of lights and fast mediums.  I DESPISE the non-standard battles because certain classes of tanks are at an immediate disadvantage.    Certain tanks simply can't "scrum", and that is what all of the other modes (and often standard) turn into.  But standard does allow a bottom tier fast tank to force the reds to defend to leave the scrum and defend their own cap.  T

My only real issue with assault is a lot of the maps seem badly balanced (like Malinovka). 

Actually had an encounter the other day where I was happy our team capped - the entire enemy team on Skorpion Pass just sat up on their hill and blasted away at anything their lights below lit up. We left them to it and went and capped. 

That was my second early cap game of the evening, and it is a bit frustrating if you are trying to up your damage numbers. Often you don't even deal your own tanks worth of hit points in these situations.

You also need to count the Team Destruction dames as non-assault/encounter. So 21 out of 27 games aka 78% of games not in Assault or Encounter. 22% of games were in Assault/Encounter, which is pretty close to the 20% expected value given the small sample size.

325 total games played, 55 in Assault/Encounter is 17%, a bit under the expected value. 

 

Seems to me like the system is working as intended, and that means only 20% of games played are Assault/Encounter. 1 out of 5. 

 

I actually prefer objective based games (not that most people in this game play to the objectives). And I only get them one out of every five games apparently.

WG: can we opt out of platoons in multiplayer mode? I would like to see a game mode with no platoons, only solo players.

 

I would like a game mode where I am teamed with just unicums.  /s.  I don’t platoon but I like that they are in the game.  Having said that, the platoon size should be limited to no more than 3.

Understood. However, you can fix the spawns on kasserine. Most lopsided encounter in the game. North spawn is half the distance of the South spawn to the circle.

Certainly feels like mostly encounter....

 

Why don't you tell me how many times my tier 8s have been bottom tier in games against 10s vs. Top tier.  I'd be shocked if it was even 50/50

I guess I'm different.  By that I mean I could careless what the game mode is or if the spawn point is in it's normal spot or not.  I'd actually prefer the spawns be in random spots then in the same old spot on the same map each time.

Hello Max,

I absolutely despise TD mode (I understand why it had to be added being console & all) I think it promotes bad overall gameplay, I do not like Pilsen, Ardennes, Baja & Scorpion Pass. Every time I see that mode more than twice a session or those Maps in a group I mentally say "TD again that is all I see any more why so much" or "Map rotation stinks tonight/today" I believe this is a "conformation bias" (the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one's existing beliefs or theories). So when we get frustrated we will come here & complain. Other game companies will ignore players rants or in the cases of Avalanche Studios, Gaijin Entertainment & Obsidian Entertainment they will ban you from all their sites & social media. I know how people feel about complimenting WGCB & Staff but I find how you just handled this refreshing in the current gaming climate (CD PROJEKT RED is very good at CS as well)

 

Things like this are why I give you guys a pass on some other stuff that I may not care for or view it less critical.

 

Thanks,

SPP

Those aren`t exactly glowing numbers are they. 18 standard battles, 9 non-standard? 

When I started playing last night I had a long run of non-standard matches. Even by your numbers that's 33% of my games playing these modes. Cram them all into the beginning of a session and it feels like that's all you are getting.

18+5+1+3 = 27   18/27 = 33% non standard

248+40+15+22 = 325     248/325 = 24% non standard

202+49+8+42 = 301     202/301 = 33% non standard

119+32+8+15 = 174     119/174 = 32% non standard

 

I put team destruction in the same category as assault and encounter.   I prefer the standard mode....when 1 out of every 3 games is something other than standard (mostly because I'm in light or fast mediums), I get perturbed.  The best I can hope for is top tier and/or an open map in one of those formats, just to make it "fair".  But that means I'm hoping for long odds just to get a "fair" match-up.  Of course the flip side is that I'm more likely to spend the 2 out of 3 games in a standard game play, but on a bad map or bottom tier.  So it FEELS like most of the time the game is stacked against certain tanks, because the odds of getting that mid or top tier, standard game, open map (for fast tanks) are probably 1 in 10 vs game modes/maps that gives advantages to heavies and TD's. 

 

 Nothing worse than grinding my 13-75, only to find out I'm bottom tier on Himmelsdorf.
