 I miss a single player, offline mode that I can play when matchmaking is crap or when I simply want to chill.

 

 

You answered yourself. Zero anger and frustration for the players, equals no real money spent. That is why so called free to play games are a one of a many diaseases of a modern society. These companies are betting on player's frustration to earn money. [edited]despicable leeches. So sad their game could actually be great and they can still earn money. This way, it's working like a gambling machine.

If my memory serves me correctly, you are thinking of Cuban missile crisis mission. Can't remember a name of the map though... 

Yep, can't remember this floodlight mission but the last mission of CMC was on Prokhorovka, real nail bitter, very hard when it was "rebalanced".

I kinda think that this floodlight mission was for a Tiger escape story in the North Africa. Sandstorms all over the place.

What a nice, self centered individual.:facepalm:

 

The thing that you haven't played it (and I don't think that is a truth at all but you're just showing off), doesn't mean that others weren't played it.

There are stats for this.

 


 

It's only my complete lack of talent that stops me from being an average player.

It was successful at release, did its job and was forgotten than by everyone, but 1% of pkayers, that were happy to play with bots. They should remake all ws maps for those 1%? I really don't think so lol.

For you but not for me.

I used it to 'learn the game ' cause l got smashed a lot, had no silver, no crews or tanks.

Then again when you could 'purchase' tanks after completion of a story at a 'special' price.

And it was for me 'highly enjoyable', l couldn't wait to get home from work and play.

That was 3 years ago. I no 10 people who started and finished playing over the past year, all younger than me who tried and quit.

All complained about a lack of a 'how to play ' package.

I miss it and so does Little Red. He was a big fan of the arty mission. Watching the look of happiness on my five year old as he slams out 13K damage in arty really warms the heart. It also proves that arty is broken mechanic.

Yes - war stories was great for solo play. Also good for new players- I don’t know why it was scrapped

 

My thoughts exactly.  I miss WS too.  +1

Well, you can't really compare Potempkin to any techtree arty... it was ridiculously overpowered, even more op than American Sexton 1  ;)

Runaway Tiger... that was a great mission. Only way you play and exprerience bigger, uncut version of Scorpion Pass on Xbox, although it was extreme weather variant but still, lot of fun... I completed it with Maus, Object 263 and various other vehicles and I think I did over 33k or 37k damage!  Good times...  :)

I miss wotc,   the new game is an insult to it's history.

                 This game needs More than a premium M3 Lee

 

I refuse to add one of those WN8 sigs as requested,   I have not played WoTc since  14th Dec 2020.   The new game is bad compared to the original,   I played a few games  on the 15th Dec 2020 and haven't played since.

When I feel tired after get off work but want to play WOT, I will play a few games of WS. If it feels good, I will play multiplayer combat. Now without WS, I rarely open XBOX after get off work on weekdays.
I am not good at English, I use Google Translate.

I used to start every session with a round or two in Proving Grounds and then end every session with a round or two in WS. They were very good when they had their own unique daily OPs associated with them but then they ditched the OPs and then they ditched the modes. I really miss both modes. The Night Mission was, as mentioned, a Cuban Missile Crisis mission. It was at night during a hurricane. The 2nd mission in the Tiger Scenario was also a night mission if I recall but it didn't have spot lights/head lamps used to light up tanks. WS was particularly good for new players because they would get a WS exclusive tank and crew (which had a free skill already trained and could be transferred to any tank once for free) and once they finished a scenario they often got an offer for a heavily discounted lower tier premium tank that they could use in MP mode. I believe a couple of the Premium tanks offered were the Captured KV-1 and the Ripper. I know there were some others I just cannot remember which.

Exactly same modus operandi myself.

 

Proving Grounds and WS until I was prepped enough to switch to MP mode.

 

I believe they removed it for business reasons, those two modes did not added anything to the bottom line. If anything, it actually removed from it.

 

I suggest they think of way to make it viable financially for them, and adding back the option for us.

You have data to prove it or just another of your self centered comments?

Seems to me that people really liked those missions... and still miss them. If you don't, that doesn't mean the missions shouldn't get back.

You are statistically a very good player but this game is not all about you, you know?
