Hey Y'all,  How about a WWII ONLY mode?   

With all the hate towards fantasy tanks and fake tanks, how about a battle mode only for tanks that actually fought in WWII ??

No separate tiers.. no tanks that only saw a drawing board.. only tanks that actually made it to a theater of war before the Japanese surrendered. 

 

Just a thought..

wouldn't be balanced tbh. Stats would have to be changed for the gamemode to make it fair to M4 Shermans fighting Tiger IIs

atleast the russian tanks will be able to fight on a level field due to the them having a arms race with the germans.

yeah, maybe make the mode also make teams only of one nation's tanks? And let the Americans have more tanks to deal with the Tigers, as say a 10v7 Americans v Germans seems fair-ish, 10 Shermans should be able to mob 7 Tiger IIs if the Shermans are coordinated enough (but with Switch mutes, that is tough)

We tried this in PC. “Historical Mode” iirc. Basically historical load out tanks (L/56 Tiger, L/71 Tiger II, 75mm M4, 76mm E8, etc etc). 
 

Basically the queue and MM would stall because everyone and their mom would queue up in the German Big Cats and nobody would queue up in an Allied tank. 
 

They did attempt to balance the matches though. The Germans would have less tanks than the Allies since they’d be running their bigger tanks.

 

PC tried a PvE mode like this as well with historical load out tanks. But they locked it behind a paywall and mismanaged it to the point where everyone hated it and it was a grind. The AI scaled poorly from easy to impossible in just a few waves. Basically everyone hated it too and it was retired.

Realistic mode not enough? Aside from that, the very specific WWII qualifier would not work out here as mentioned above.

Ehhhhh, the KV-1 and T-34 would be sporting the 76mm F-34 (or even the 76mm L-11 if its an early T-34 model).  The IS could be a pretty varied one though.  It'd have an 85mm, 100mm, or 122mm.  Would depend on if they wanted an early or later model.  KV-2 would be fine with the 152 and either turret.  The Lend-Lease stuff would work (Matty and Church) and the weird prototypes that actually fought (KV-220, SU-100Y) could be included if they really wanted as well.

 

But still, the Russian 76mm guns wouldn't have the easiest time punching through the German Big Cat armor.  Panzer III and IVs would be easy pickings though.

 

Dang....I was rambling too much.  Sorry.

Japanese tanks would suffer badly if it were WWII tanks only, they had like the Ha Go in WWII.  Their tanks were not great
