This topic will attempt to centralize several discussions about the reimplementation of night ground battles in one location. Many players, myself included, are dissatisfied with Gaijin’s plans for how night battles will return. The following polls will cover some of the more significant issues I’ve seen discussed.
Please everyone remember that night battles are entirely optional. No matter what, no one will be forced to play night battles if they do not want to and none of these suggestions intend to make night battles unavoidable again.
BR limit for night battles
- The BR cap is good where it is planned now (10.0)
- There should be no BR cap
- The BR cap needs to be lower (what BR?)
- The BR cap needs to be higher (what BR?)
Illumination flares in night battles
- Flares should remain
- Flares should be removed
- Flares should be reduced
- Flares should be reworked in some new way
Chance of night battles when opted in
- Night battles should have a “small chance” as currently intended
- Night battles should be guaranteed
- Night battles should have a much higher chance (what percent?)
- There should be options for mixed day/night or only night battles
Night battles being limited to 10.0+ is ridiculous, at that point pretty much everything has thermals which makes both weather conditions and amount of light mostly irrelevant.
We have NVD available to vehicles below 6.0 and around 8.0 the mod creeps into every one of your vehicles only to be disabled or forgotten as it is completely useless (though some vehicles do get useful gunner thermals at this point), so the limit should obviously be 8.0 if there is any.
Night in the game isn’t even that bad, some vehicles can blend in much better since they’re not highlighted as much by their awful camo. You can still hear enemies moving even if you can’t see them yet, actually much better than in a regular battle since planes are nearly nonexistent.
It’d be fine to allow night battles at any BR, if you can’t play night at 1.0 maybe just don’t enable it
Hey guys, if you have not already please leave a comment in support of NB’s on the main thread, especially if you have heard from anyone else who has actually gotten a NB at all: Optional Night Battles for Ground Realistic Battles
My biggest point is advocating for a dedicated Night Battle only Queue/Mode (NB) which would make the BR limit a moot point–just have it open to all BRs and/or perhaps starting at Tier II or III. III might make more sense as to allow time for new players to become accustomed to the game before being brutalized by NB’s where they for sure do not have any NVD’s. : Optional Night Battles for Ground Realistic Battles - #47 by W_Wolfe
The reason they don’t have it lower at the moment is because you typically don’t see NVD at all until like 6.3/6.7 and it’s usually just on a light tank or 2, some nations most of their tanks won’t get NVD’s until almost 8.0; but, right around when your tanks all start getting NVD at 8.0 thermals start showing up and thermals>NVD all day. America and China are good examples of a bit of the issues; America gets 2 tech tree vehicles between 8.0 and 10.0 with thermals the Bradley and the m60 TTS one is 8.3 the other is like 9.0…meanwhile, china gets 6 tech tree vehicles with thermals between 8.0 and 10.0 and 4 of them are 9.0/9.3.
there should be no br cap, but8.3+ br there should not be illumination flares. if there were to be night battles at low tier it would be nice to have them instead of ruining the purpose of NVD.
NBs are annoying for me since I dont even need the NV to drive the tank I can see everything, on desert maps there is a bug where the sand is very bright and it turns brigher and darker sometimes whidout any NV usage.
There should be no BR limit, and flares removed or reworked… Now night battles are bright as day. I had a “day” battle once where I used NVDs on my 8.0 tank.
