Can we spectate TB games? It would be nice if a newbie like me can watch others play before joining a TB. :harp:

Nice Video, my only comment about team mode and current 7/42 is it allows teir 1's, would rather they limit it to tier 3-8 so people are playing real tanks, you would probably see more of a diverse tank pick too with active tanks and little less camping due to the current 5 teir 8 and 2 teir 1 lineups. A tier 3 tank can hurt a teir 8 enough not to be ignored. you might even see some art come in.

Too few people are playing Team Battles on this server. Less players lead to more waiting time which discourages players more.
It's better than Tank Companies, but WG should do more to encourage Team Battles. It's a great game mode but more people need to try it out.

I'd want random battles to be disabled on certain hours of certain days of the week but I guess that's not possible.

Wish there was a larger minimum points you could bring. Played a match last night where the enemy brought 5 tier 1s. Wasted 5 minutes sitting in queue to play a battle that lasted 60 seconds and had me net 3 one shot kills. Not impressed.

How many team are playing in this mode? The waiting time gradually increased in past 4 days from 1-2 minutes to 5.
Is the skill matching enabled already? I have an impression it is enabled because we either get a decent team before 5 min mark or get some random nubs after 5 min (and I suspect that after 5 min the balancer gives up and give us any team from the queue).

I played it twice and got both times totally uneven teams where one dominated easily the other... not worth to waste my time on..

The new Team Battle mode is suppose to encourage more people to get into the e-sports side of things which the current meta is 5x t8, 2x t1, please come into challenge series this weekend with your Tier 3's

So I tried team battle for the first time today.

Used the auto function.  It said average waiting time 5 min.

I waited 5 min.  Then it exited.  I assume it timed out.

Had fun with team battles last night, but waiting in the queue is too long. So bad waiting for long. And one thing, not all understand the mechanics of the game. There was one team we faced. They were composed of Tier 6-4 tanks. I felt sorry for them as they faced our Tier 8s.

when this was first announced  i looked forward to it as it offered finally a way to improve my enjoyment of the game but allowing skill based match making. As i am not one of the better players i was sick of being used as cannon fodder for the better skilled players. So i though yes teams mode is for me  finally battles that have players approx my own ability !. Oh how i was going to be disappointed. if fact is WOT was based in my country  it  would have broken some marketing rules over misrepresentation because for what ever the reason is using auto search and team battles has resulted in 10 out of 10 if the worst match ups i have ever seen .   Those familiar with xvm will know about the color codes.  well  imagine game after game of  being in a team of red and yellow and orange  going up against nothing but blue and purple and green  .  Games are short! and no fun at all . skill based matchmaking  ..... lies

people would simply take 5 t8 tanks. those 2 extra points are there to provide as eyes and bring different challenge

WG, how about provide extra credits bonus modifier for playing Team Battle? For both winning and losing teams. This should encourage more people to play. Currently the waiting time is too long. If nothing is done to encourage more teams to join, Team Battle will become a ghost town and a failed initiative.
