G'day everyone,

Seeing as we have a lot of trouble promoting Historical Battles here on the ASIA server I am pushing for Monday night to be HB night. I'll be recording the battles with face-cam and uploading the replays to my youtube channel. If you're interested, here are the details:

When? Weekly on Monday afternoon/evenings from 2100 NZST (GMT +12), 1900 AEST (GMT +10) which is 1700 SGT (GMT +8)

How? I started a channel named Historical Battles. If you're interested, jump in the channel and coordinate with people for tank selection and queue entering times. If you're getting members of your clan to jump in with you, coordinating over TS makes it so much easier.

How do I select Historical Battle mode? Simple, click the little arrow under the Battle button and you'll get a list of different game modes. Select Historical Battles and you'll be given a list of vehicles you can use. Please note that they'll be in their historical configuration, which in most cases is stock. Ammunition loads are also historical (sometimes with a few extra premium rounds for balance), but you can use any equipment and consumables you want. Simply select your vehicle and press Battle and matchmaker will try to do the rest.

There is no one in the channel and no one queuing up, what do I do if I want to get in a Historical Battle? If I am online I will be in the channel at all times. If we have trouble getting numbers i'll nag encourage PETCO members to queue up. If you are in a clan, try to get your clan mates to queue up as well.

 

What tanks are elegible?

Germany:

  • Panzer IV D
  • Panzer III
  • Panzer II
  • StuG IIIB
  • Panzer III ausf. A
  • Panzerjaeger I

 

Britain:

  • Matilda
  • Valentine
  • Cruiser III
  • Cruiser II
  • Crusader

 

There are lots of people in queue, but I can't get into a battle? What vehicle are you using? Long queue times in Historical Battles are caused by matchmaker throwing a hissy fit because too many people are in one type of tank. Select a different vehicle of the same nation OR swap nation.

Why are the British outnumbered? Historically the Commonwealth forces were surrounded by the German forces, as it was a seige. To reflect this, the British get lower numbers of vehicles. However, the British get to use a Tier V vehicle whereas the Germans are restricted to Tiers II-IV. Also, the Germans only get one vehicle which can actually scare the Matilda.

Are there any missions, extra rewards for this? Starting on Friday 27th of June there will be HB specific missions which will roll all the way through to 9.2. I'll share the details here once I get them.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. If you like this idea or want to get the ball rolling as well, please leave a comment and we can try to encourage the CMs to promote this more.

 

Introduction to Historical Battles video:

I made a minor mistake in the video, the Valentine is a Tier IV, not III.

Replays from the first night are here:

Feet.  Want to post a list of the tanks elligible for Tobruk so people can make sure they have them (just in the interests of making life easier for them - and ensuring we don't just have 400 Matildas in queue).

7pm Australian Eastern Standard Time until whenever. I understand about CW, our battles are normally 8:30-9:30 anyway.

May I also suggest that if you are queuing up with a group of people, please don't all sit in Matildas, bring a variety of tanks so MM isn't complaining.

Yes they are, but the 2-pdr is a frigging awesome gun compared to what the Jerries get.

Got a STuG and a Matty, will add a III and was thinking I might get the Val back as I have a UK light crew still trained for it.
