Hi, I'm 5ynt4x_3rr0r, and I would like to suggest a sandbox mode.

 

Concept/purpose: Very similar in concept to training rooms where the purpose is to test out new strategies and stuff but with the added bonus of also being able to 'try before you buy' new tanks you wanna research.

 

How to use: You pick out any tank (not premium/collector) or from the tech tree or your garage (yes premium/collector) and spec it out to your liking. Like training rooms, you can invite friends, but unlike training rooms you cannot browse for sandboxes and you are able to add AI to your sandbox, not only other players. When picking out the AI, you can select the difficulty from a scale of 'very easy' to 'very hard.' You can also select the AI's tanks. For this you can be as vague as "any German tank" to as specific as "the German Tiger I (P) with the 8,8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 gun, stock turret, 2x Porsche Typ 100/3 engine, Tiger (P) verstärkteketten tracks, Chocolate bar, 15 HE shells, only the Calibrated Shells Equipment, only the fire extinguisher consumable, sniper -> deadly accuracy crew skills, a common consumable reload booster, etc."

 

Details: Like the Training Rooms, you will NOT receive any military honor, badges, XP, credits, etc. You cannot use any boosters except the consumable reload booster thing either. To unlock either it could be a purchase for credits/xp or you can unlock it once you get a tier 8 or something. Just please, I beg you, if you add this don't sell it for real-life money or crazy (>1k) amounts of gold because this should be available for anyone to get relatively easily without spending money. Maybe like 50-100 gold or 75k credits or 2k free xp.

close, i'm saying you can use any non-premium/collector tank for a training battle against bots for free or a one-time purchase using in-game money.

Good idea but this concept may be better used on CO-OP which can give you credits (free exp would make the grind too easy.)

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

How is asking what language you are good at racist?

Normally I expect people to make an assumption that I live in China. Even I hate China, others will probably too.

Idk, I just reply that I dont live in china. Just seeing the word ‘china’ makes me cringe.

An advanced training grounds map with static or AI controlled enemy tanks has been requested from before we had training rooms.
It seemed logical for WG to add this functionality to training rooms, where you could setup a some AI red enemies ... but it has been a few years ...

Not just AI, I'm thinking this as a mode to play around with tanks before you buy them or to decide what tech tree to use, or even just to see what tank of two is superior. I wish I had this before I decided to get the Leopard (tier 5) because if I did I wouldn't have gone all out for the Leo PT A - I would have gone for the Maus instead.

wdym? if you mean my tank tier and my 500 battles, thats probably cuz I somehow got half-off tank research certificates for something. Also I hoard rare boosters - I have 30-40+ boosters of each type except gold boosters.

 

EDIT: remembered how I got the certificates: the campaign that happened right before code chaos. you know the one with the bracelets and such

I mean your skill level. You shouldn't be playing high tiers, you should be down in tier 4-5

are you saying im bad at the game!?!??!
JK, yeah I get beat up a lot when I play really anything higher than 8. I also haven't really decided on a playstyle* because I've only really used german light/medium tanks, one more reason to add sandbox mode**. also I can't really practice in higher tier tanks that much because nobody uses training rooms for what they are meant for*** and cant practice in real games because my victory ratio goes down and everyone is like 'haha lol 45% victory ratio lol u trash kid"
*Although I think I like either sniping or going heavy tank because I get stressed when I take too much dmg

** reason being that if i had known that I would like range or armor more before I went out and bought the tier 5 leopard I would have went for maus or something

*** Training rooms should be used for training and practice like the name suggests, not for playing runners vs rammers or prison or prot tier 1. I admit, I play (and make) some of those games too, but I feel like a gamemode used for custom games should be called something more like 'arcade mode.' for those about to rock who make actual training rooms like "x tank vs y tank" or "x country tanks vs y country tanks," I salute you.

that's my point, you shouldn't be at high tiers. You ruin everyone elses game and it's not fun to get rekted

TBF people with a 60-70%+ victory ratio also ruin everyone elses game by winning all the time. also I think we should move this conversation to DMs

Go ahead and send me one than. But I'd rather lose to a good player than lose because of a bad player on my team
