I could not see how to have multiple questions in the poll - just multiple answers....
As some of you may be aware part of the 7.0 patch will expand the "banding" of company battles. It is my hope that this will allow the TWC EU clan to become 'active' in that we can fight as a group of more than 2 or 3 as the current limitation on platoons. This will hopefully improve the enjoyment we get out of this game - after all random battles can be no fun.
The problem with the current company battle structure is that it needs players to have either tier 9 or 10 vehicles. Yes, you can play with lower tiers at the moment but you will be lilkey to be facing those higher tiers (and we all know what that feels like in random battles). While there are many active TWC players on the EU server few have tier 9 vehicles which has excluded us from getting more enjoyment from the game.
This is the blurb that is shown in the 7.0 patch notes:
- Added Tier-limits for Tank Companies: Tier4, Tier6, Tier8 and Tier 10. For all these Tiers SPG Tier limits were added (in the next version same restrictions will be applied to light tanks)This is the possible break down (where a point is the equivalent of the tier - so a MS-1 is 1 point and a T-28 is 4 points)
up to tier 4 (tiers 1-4) - points 50
up to tier 6 (tiers 1-6) - points 70
up to tier 8 (tiers 1-8) - points 90
So for instance (clearly there are other combinations);
With an 'up to tier 4' battle (50 points) we could have 12 tier 4 vehicles (12*4=48) and one tier 2 vehicle (50-48=2).
With a 'up to tier 6' battle (70 points) we could have 11 tier 6 vehicles (11*6=66) and one tier 4 (70-66=4).
With 'up to tier 8' battle (90 points) we could have 12 tier 8 vehicles (12*8=88) and one tier 2 vehicle (90-88=2).
There may be restrictions on what vehicles can be included in these company battles - such as SPGs and the new lights (T-50, T-50-2, VH2801 and M24 Chaffee). This has yet to be clarified. This is from the WoT forums posted by Overlord (Tier 5 lights will be excluded from 6/60 company battles.)
What I would like to do is to get an idea of if you are interested in playing in such battles, what banding you could supply vehicles for and what time(s) would suit you.
Edited: Maybe we need to define what 'evening' is? I would presume that most players will be either in the UK or to the East. So I guess 'evening' could be from 18:00 GMT or later. I guess also we may need to define how late you would be willing to play the game.
I would presume that we should be able to find at least one time slot that we could get a company together. I guess the next thing would be to find some opponents!
Edited (2): If we have more vehicles than we need for the company and we fight more than one battle in a row I would hope that we can use a strict 'rotation' system in that each player will take a turn at 'being on the bench'. No one person owns the clan.
