Why Remove the choice of Asymmetric Battles?

Why take away a structure of Gameplay that actually made the game interesting and challenging; for those still up for the challenge...

 

Surely I am not the only one who loved pitching my Tier V and Tier VI ships against Tier VIII's....

 

Would it really be so difficult to leave this as a permanent feature for people who are tired with Ranked or Random?

 

If you are keeping the Battles of the Week (Which many people have played so many times before so as to know how the Bots play) why not add Asymmetric.. at least with Asymmetric each game will be different and need individual skill and cunning to win.

 

@Crysantos and @MrConway come on and allow those who want challenges to have them... return Asymmetric to the list of battle.

TBH the XP gain in ops is so pathetic nowadays they can just as well remove them and put in what you ask, not like they count for many mission chains either...

@Yedwy I loved playing the under dog... You play a Tier V DD and you have to play smart against a Tier VIII opponent... Loved it.

I'd like these battles back too, they were very welcome variety. Especially if you were grinding ships of those tiers.

 

I loved playing the under dog too that way even if we lost I could always live up to the expectations. :Smile_hiding:

The really fun part was when the lower tier team won the battle. :Smile_medal:

The really unfun part was when you got 6 low tier bots on your side and a human high tier CV... :Smile_sceptic:

  • the battles were temporary as announced
  • with enough positive feedback they will be back
  • but WG has to change them as they did not work the way they were implemented (remove mixed bot/player teams, fine tune the numerical difference)

As with our other time limited modes, there is a good chance that they will be back if they were successful and well-received. :)

 

Unfortunately we cannot leave all of these modes active, this would have a negative impact on the matchmaker and queue times.

 

I also think that by changing the modes up, they stay fresh and interesting - just wait for the madness in the Halloween mode!

But the games always remain fresh do they not? Whether you're Tier V or Tier VIII your opponents, your Allies, will never be the same...

 

OPs and Halloween are predictable are they not?

 

As others have said the Bots were the problem and as to the MM Queue times, do you really mean that the other choices may become less popular (Maybe)..

 

Whilst Asymmetric was on offer I never touched a Random game because I had no need to... the games were a challenge and nobody camped.

Unless I'm mistaken, the maps were modified Operations maps. Which also made them interesting in another way.

Hopefully the mode will return, it's important to remember WG do not like to provide a lot of diversity in game modes, so all these alternatives to random battles are temporary.

Well....

 

In world of tanks you can enable/disable specific battle types in the settings. 

This could be an option to allow other battle modes (arms race, assymetric etc) while not drawing away the players that have this enabled from the global pool, unless they actually go into battle.

In separate game modes this is a clear problem since the people waiting for operations for instance will never go into a normal random match

would prefer savage mode back

or Halloween mode, couldn't really call it predictable as you never could exactly pinpoint when the betrayal would happen 

asymmetric was kindof fun, but too similar to just random

We will notice the difference in madness levels though 😂🙃

I really enjoyed asymmetric but I get why they want to keep the number of modes available at one time restricted.

Nobody really play this mode, plus you didn't win more EXP and more then a good FFA game with boost flags.
