So you want the 10% of maps in rotation that are not Ground Strike to become Ground Strike as well?

Keep it. If we are talking about removing gamemodes/adding gamemode preferences I put up air domination, takes forever, just a giant swarm of planes and I honestly have no idea what the criteria is to cap, not to mention whenever I get it I always see people complain about it.

I dont see the problem with ticking boxes allowing us to choose which prefered mode we'd like to play, I also hate airfield cap (because I do play a flying arcade mode, not a landing simulator...) Most of my Q times day or night are rarely above 30 seconds so I dont see this killing the player pool... Some options would give the best of the world, people prefering groundstrike would, people loving air dom would have more than 1 game out of 20 etc etc. The more the merrier when its optional I'd say.

Id sooner get rid of the cloud overkill that came along with all the Dom games now, Gaijin always got to go overboard with everything they change haven't they ever heard of moderation, the clouds are way too much now its not fun flying in soup.

The problem is when you play high tier battles and have to wait for a long long time.
Allowing players to fragment the playerbase even more would mean even longer waiting times.
(Unless your favorite is tier 2-3 ground strike like most other plebs of course)

 

Edit: I actually do agree on "prefered mode". I am just used to argue about "selected mode". 
Prefered mode can be granted when queues are not signifignatly changed

Can agree on higher tier because the population may run scarce, but for tier 2 - 3 it should be ok to at least have an option to disallow (or low priority) on themode we dislike the most (and I actually dislike anything ground related ^^), I'd like airdom with 3 cap zone for instance, but its another debate. I just fail to see the "interesting" point about trying to land in front of enemies with the most possible speed in order to takeoff asap, at least ground strike is somehow "realistic" in a sense.

Its a game, when a game becomes boring and monotonous as in dive bomb die repeat for the sake of reality its going to fail as a game, it must give fun and have it so skills can be highly developed in gaining more kills, not much fun in killing AI in online FPS, at their heart its really about skill and competition and in this game that means air to air combat against real people.

NEVER. I prefer dying in a furball, hunting other planes, than in a strafing run trying to destroy stupid AI ground units. 2-3 out of 10 combats are Domination and it should be more.

Is this a troll?  Airfield Dom is great!   I could see how it sucks for pure bomber pilots, however.

 

I would like the option, esp in the "dom" maps, of being able to elect to fly out a WT-selected lineup of BR-appropriate fighters and heavy fighters. The lineups should be spaded.

 

That is, "This is a DOM map and your lineup includes 50%+ bombers. Would you like fly out a random lineup instead?"

Britain airfield domination is the best map in the game imo. Airfield doms need to stay, even though I got 4 on the trot last week whilst trying to drop 20 tonnes of bombs on bases in my Halifax..

 

It's the same cause for all mode and map complaints I think (except for Guiana highlands which is just plain awful) - everything is fine in moderation, it's the map rotation that lets everything down.

If you don't like airfield domination you'll get 4 on the bounce in the hour you have available to play & your war thunder day is ruined.

 

Map rotation...so easily fixed & yet completely ignored, despite its glaring faults.

Map rotation should be truly random but we all know it isn't. If you don't like Domination maps just leave, get your crew locked and play another nation(you still got 6 to choose from), that's what I usually do with those thick cloud maps or when I get Guiana Highlands and I'm not in the mood to waste my time. Already got Guiana Highlands 3 times in a row and ended with 3 crew locks but there is still 4 nations left ;)

My preferred maps are multi-airfield dom matches. They offer a role for all types of planes. Bombers are important because often these games are won by tanks seizing and holding airfields. Fighters are free to do their thing across several zones. What I most enjoy is using a lowly Blenheim or Hudson in higher ranked games to cap airfields. You fly high, wait for an airfield to be relatively free of enemy cover and at the last possible moment, dive steeply to cap it. Approaching touch-down, such planes are highly manoeuvrable and can evade enemy fire, whilst the enemy desperately closes up and is surprised by your tail gunner. Great fun.

It is one of the very few game modes that you can actually get in a dogfight out side of the climb, camp, and dive more common in ground strike.

This is bull... why a team should be punished in the game with 3-4 losers or missing players right from the bat? 

I had once a DOM game where no less than 5 players left our team and we were crippled in a 11 vs 16 match;

Where is the fun in this? 

I noticed most of the G0D players, when they play solo, as soon as they get shot down while camping, they will leave the match - great stats G0Ds!

So please stop advising players to leave the game because they don't like the mode! It is very unfair for the both teams because unbalanced matches it is no fun at all!

If it was me, I would lock the crew for a couple hours...

 

My advise to OP would be this: fight for your team, fight in Guiana Highlands, fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall win the match whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches (ground strike), we shell fight on the landing grounds (domination) we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never return to hangar like pathetic cowards!

Where is the fun in playing a game where you see nothing but a grey screen or are forced to go low so you can see anything, this when you don't crash against a mountain you couldn't avoid on time or a map where basically no plane performs and instead of flying feels more like it's floating? Anyone knows that clouds don't work, you can see enemies at long distances, yet they disappear when you have them at around 1km or less just to appear at less than 800m from you, sometimes even the lead indicator appears before their tag. What would you prefer them to do, them quitting a game mode or map they don't like and join another match or simply go play another game and leave this one with even less players than it already has?

I'm glad you notice that only G0D members do such thing ;) What it has to do with stats? If they were shot down and left the game, their stats are affected by it don't you think.

First you don't say what I should or shouldn't post here, if you have a different opinion, great, stand by yours as I will stand by mine. Many things are unfair in this game and many things are not fun, like thick clouds and that Guiana Highlands map in my opinion. Lock the crew a whole day if you want, I would play another nation, lock all crews and I would play a different game, that would only hurt this game even more.

I'm complaining about players leaving at the beginning of the match (or after they lose a plane :-p ) and creating a big unbalance in the game 

and you are complaining about clouds and a map that's not suitable for low BR planes!? 

First: please notice the source of the complains are very different!

Second: that "please stop advising players to leave" - was a general request (not only for you!) that I personally think it is a fair request and I standby it. I don't know why you took it personally because I think it was not rude in any way, and I wish I can say the same about

Third: First you don't say what I should or shouldn't post here... ok, let me try to rephrase that:

please, refrain advising players to return to hangar - thank you!
