Your ideas about suggestion to have Game Modes rotate about every 3 hours (all days that no special events are running).

 

I know some players hate a few game modes and some need more testing and changes. But if they rotated modes and listed times and mode to be used for the next few turns, a player could take a break for a few hours and return for a mode they like.

 

Because "NOTHING BUT" Conquest Mode, that can have battles as short as 6 minutes is hard to do missions sometimes (at least for average or below players). Take for example the "Hunt for XP-36F, Part 4"  WOWP 5 Year mission, in Conquest Mode it seems like only 1 or 2 players get the required 10,000 personal points in a single battle if they are lucky.

 

What do you think?

is a server reset required to run a different mode?      then maybe swap out every 24 hours?

 

would this be more expensive for WG?    and for us over time, because of that?

 

i already miss BEM, i would love to see it cycle through once an hour!

Rotation of gamemodes could be interesting, sorta like the system Splatoon has. However at the same time we have so few modes to rotate through right now that it would still end up stale playing the same 2-3 modes. The system WoT and WoWs have in which you're just randomly handed a mode would be better.

 

Not knowing what mode you get means you can't pick planes that dominate that mode specifically and club everything with ease (except the Pancake, but that thing is broken so it doesn't count.)

 

For example: Nearly everybody spammed GA/Bombers or was flighted with a GA/Bomber during Escort to be on attacking; the side that usually won in low-mid tiers. 

Not knowing you're getting Escort and potentially getting something like say, Attrition; where GA can't dominate matches whatsoever unlike Conquest might deter people from spamming specific planes.

 

No matter what though, we'd need more gamemodes to play that actually work in random battles before we start adding new modes in regular play (Attrition was perfect for adding to regular play, then they went and changed how strongholds work, as such, I no longer see it as good for random battles.)

I think the OP posted on the wrong forum, this is aircraft discussion, and it looks like this thread is about a suggestion.

 

Rotate game mode? sure, but we need to make a few decent modes first. Right now we have 3 non-conquest modes and 2 of them are very biased against ground pounders while the other is the opposite.
