Hi fellow Captains,

Among all the issues the game currently has, the most concerning to me is the lack of variety in game modes, as it relates to the long term enjoyment I can derive from this game. Maybe I'm too fickle, but to me, repeating the same action ten thousand times isn't a very enticing prospect in terms of fun. New ships are variations on the same theme, different toy, same game. The new Ranked mode being an almost constant feature is nice, but not something really different in terms of playing experience. 

I've been vocal about the need to freshen up the repertoire of game modes, even more considering you (WG) have tested some along the years and you probably have some data and experience readily at hand from previous Halloween events and tests like Asymetric Battles. I intend on carrying on the crusade for new game modes to make some noise and give more visibility to this issue, there is a lot of untapped potential to this game, a lot of possibilities just waiting for an opportunity to be monetized. I invite you fellow Captains to post your thoughts and ideas on new game modes and how they will improve the game experience of WoWS.

Just to start I would point just a few of the ideas for game modes previously floated, some are variations of the current  format, some radically new. I will be updating the list and providing links with your ideas.

  • Arms Race mode for all tiers (@eviltane)
  • Asymetric hybrid PvP/PvE big map
  • Dedicated multi CV Operations/Scenarios
  • Key Battles inspired mode for regular ship roster
  • Test Submarine scenario (Convoy vs Wolf Pack - give depth charges and hydro to T1 ships pls, would be hilarious)

This is just to name a few possibilities, go ahead and make some noise guys.

Regular 3 to 7 ships team battles/brawls mode. Same tier only. Match opposing teams with the same number of ships at the same tier. Time to make this game a real team game.

I'd like to see a 8x8 all BB battle mode on a small map. Total fun.

What about a Battle-Mode-of-the-week working like Operations, with a rotations of different brawl formats as you propose

I would like to see a game mode that reduces the map as time progresses....it has been used in some events and I feel that it would get some the back line player in the game.

 

At a minimum it would give us a mode of getting the potential brawling battle that some of us enjoy.

Sure.

I'm also not against 1x1 battle mode (same ship type) similar to what they had in Ranked Sprint map. Call it "no fault but My Own" mode.  One way for players to really prove themselves.

Another idea is a Battle mode with 40 ships , everyone for themselves. last man standing wins big points.

Ship class modes. Only DD vs DD, only BB vs BB, only CA/CL vs CA/CL, etc. 

Pre-dreadnought ships with suitable maps  (Jutland, Tsushima, Antivari, Port Arthur, etc.)

Escort mission (fragile ship carrying diplomats/special secret equipment) must be escorted through enemy waters. Sort of like Raptor Rescue, but with Raptor being controlled by a human player.

Stealth mission. You must pilot a destroyer past enemy ships to land commandos at a location during a night raid, then fight a defensive battle while waiting for the commandos to finish their mission, then pick up the raiding force and exit the map.

Some good ideas above!

How about opportunities for T5-7 Clan battles for the lower T players as a regular thing.  We have more players who can participate in those. It wouldn't hurt to have some T3-5, either.  So... give us some team building stuff that everyone can participate in.

With a smaller version of Ocean map where no one is out of range of any guns and could not hide LOL.

No islands to hide behind.

Oh man that would be so fun.

Rewards for test battles would be nice. Could be like a sand box. Who knows, the players might come up with a test scenario that is popular and everybody gets rewarded too boot.
