Ice Cold in Tobruk

 As you are aware Historical Battles were added a couple of patches ago. But at least on my local Server no one is playing them. Well patch 9.1 brings us the Historical battle Tobruk!
In an effort to jump start more people playing Historical battles from now on, every Saturday, starting on the 14th of June, I will be playing Historical Battles. The time will be 1500 until at least 1600 (if not later) British Summer Time. The server will be EU1.
However I'm not the only attraction there. So far we have a few others confirmed to be playing Historical Battles. At the moment Jingles and Silentstalker will be playing as well as me.
I'm hoping more famous names will be showing up... Will you?
For those that don't know, to get to historical battle mode:
1: Bellow the battle button, there's a pull down menu, that by default says "Random Battle". Click that.
2: Select Historical Battles
3: Pick your tank from your garage. You'll get charged some credits for the ammo load out, but don't worry you'll get the money back for any shells you don't fire.


You will of course need an appropriate tank to be brought and researched, but don't worry if you don't have the modules unlocked, they're provided free of charge.

As a Final note, if you queue up in a Matilda Senior it'll take a very long time to get into game, as they're very powerful machines. However the other tanks will get into game much quicker. So my advise to you is: Don't use the Matilda Senior!
Listy, Jingles and Silent driving a tank?

  3. I feel there need to be more incentive to choose Historical Battles. There aren't many that try them on the NA servers either. maybe a 1.5x on exp and credits earned.
    Perhaps people don't know they're available. I had a friend suggest making historicals an 'opt out' game mode like assault or encounter. I think that would just piss people off.

  6. It should be "Im *hoping more famous names will be showing up", not hopping :P one is for hope, the other is for jumping :)

  7. Question: How the hell will you be playing together because unless they've introduced a new feature, you can't actually platoon in HB....unless of course you're going old fashioned and queuing together?

  13. Rippa mate. That's midnight local time, but more fun than sleep.
    I started an EU account a little while ago just because apart from the test server I have not been able to get a HB game on either NA or Asia servers at all. I am putting a scratch couple of tanks and crews together tonight. Look for a wombat running on at least 330 ping.
    See ya later cobblers.

  16. I've been trying to push the HB's this month with the "Historical Battles Queue" channel ( I think I saw you there Listy). Alas the timing of this event isn't good for me but I will be giving the mode a go most evenings.

    Guys where you can join the channel to say how it's going and where we get a queue imbalance we can get people to swithc side or servers as needed.

  17. Wow, the M13/40. I remember doing the Tamiya kit of that recently. May not be a top tank (you can vote it in this linked list), but it's a nice topic to model, nonetheless.

  20. I really need to know what TS you'll be using, if any.

    1. As far as I know, there's no TS being used, we've all just agreed to be playing at time X. That way you have equal chances of running into anyone.

  21. you should open a chat room so we can communicate about what tanks to load up and that kind of thing.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well if you let people play their older tanks without having to retrain their crews, you would have a lot of people playing. I for one would like to get back into my matilda and play historycal but I am not willing to retrain my crew for this event, then retrain iit again to put it back on the current tank.
    All other incentives are usless....

  34. War is a fascinating subject. Despite the dubious morality of using violence to achieve personal or political aims. It remains that conflict has been used to do just that throughout recorded history.

    Your article is well done, a good read.
