  1. *Hey all!*

    We’re really excited to show you more about *BATTLEGROUP* within the next few weeks, and yes, there will most certainly be public servers live soon.

    Below I’m going to put a list of common questions that may be of use. If you have anything else you’d like to know, put it below and I’ll do my best to reply.

    *Q. How many players per side?*
    There will be 32 players per team with AI also boosting that number.

    *Q. Do I need high tier ships and planes?*
    No, not at all. The entry-level ships for this mission are the reserve destroyers and tier I & II aircraft.

    *Q. How does spawning work?*
    Each player has unlimited lives but will need to earn supply points in order to deploy higher powered vehicles from their dedicated factory points.

    *Q. Can I capture a shipyard with a plane?*
    Yes, you can use boat planes.

    *Q. Can we attack the D point?*

    *Q. Can we use LVTs to capture shipyards?*
    Not right now, but we may consider it for the memes.

    *Q. Can I spawn a battleship straight away?*
    No, you’ll have to build up your points by starting in early warships and aircraft.

    *Q. WHEN CAN I PLAY?!*
    We’ll be announcing public servers within the next few weeks. Make sure you’re joined to Phly’s discord server for announcements and updates.

    Any further questions, you’re more than welcome to ask!

    Thanks guys,

  2. *Phellas!!* Hope you enjoy and are excited about some future videos to come out on this gamemode as the Dev team clears us for a full playsesh.

    This looks like a lot of fun, can’t wait to try it. 😀

  4. Battlestations pacific was the first game i played as a kid that really got me into ww2 vehicles and tactics which eventually led to war thunder. Love this.

  5. This looks fun, I might have to start grinding out naval

    • That was indeed the case before new power but ever since the max I’ve had to wait has been 30 seconds because there are so many players playing naval now so try giving it a shot now

    • @Justin Alexander isn’t it a funny cycle how people don’t play naval because it doesn’t have enough players?

    • Autism is Uncontrollable

      @Epic Daviii “u have to grind in most games” no, no you don’t.

    • For new naval players, you rather not reach 4.7/5.0 for now.
      You will be constantly uptiered fighting battleships at 6.0 or even the Ikoma (a half assed battleship) at 5.7
      I remember complaining years ago about my Tiger I facing Centurions with stab ans APDS but compared to DDs and CLs facing BBs that was a child play.

    • @ousou78 i play on 4.3 with the russian bluewater navy, 4.3 and 2.0 are the BEST br’s in the entirety of naval, you don’t face things that you can’t take out, you generally have good lineups for most trees
      i don’t leave those br’s, and so should you if you want to have fun in naval, otherwise it gets like cancer really quickly

  6. I would actually sell my soul to get either A. This sponsored by Gajin, including maybe all types of ships (Submarines, Iowas, Kongos, etc etc) and actual accurate guns (Type 26 aa guns, Japanese 150mm coastal guns, etc etc) or B. Square Enix, (Who now owns Edios, the peeps who made BP) to make a new BP.

    • I would fucking sell my kidney if they added ww2 subs!!! War thunder would be the only game I’d play if they did that. You can find any good playable sub games on console, they already added the modern subs but like I would die if they added diesel subs

    • Either Gaijin pulls the plug on this or they end up incorporating a half assed version of the mode filled with p2w bullshit and grind

    • @Sammy Godzilla as odd as Silent Thunder was, WWII Era U-boats would be cool, since they need to be near or on the surface to attack or move swiftly

  7. When gaijin doesn’t make new game modes so the community does it instead . . . Bravo!

  8. Everyone’s talking about the how cool the new game mode looks, but nobody’s talking about how we can finally capture the D point


  10. Get out of here, Stalker

    Finally a mode where you can say: “Attack the D point!”

  11. Attempt 5
    The Thomas challange: Tow the train to B on American desert

  12. As a mod developer for Battlestations Pacific, I find this really interesting how you are able to recreate an entire game mode from an 11-year-old game into a modern-day MMO. Very impressive on the work on Battlegroup! Hats down to you!

  13. “This game mode is to remind players that it’s not just all about the grind…”

    *Gaijin agents smile and nod while they attach their suppressors…

    • @MrMattumbo Wow. That’s a lot of pent-up feelings (which I’m totally feelin’ right now so no judge). In my humble opinion, if the Purse-holders are smart they’ll let this play out a bit and see how popular it ends up. The ultimate goal is to get people to play (yes, I know, I’m wrong it’s money but hear me out): this will appeal and attract a certain subset of players that WILL start playing more OR who gave up and this little idea sparked their interests again to come back. Those that enjoy this type of “campaign map”-style play may decide they have “found a home” and WILL begin paying at some point (yes, there’s other variables that will effect this, i.e. Community). If the “Holder of the Gold that Pays the Mighty Devs to Do Their Job” decides to invest a little effort and make these type of “campaign maps” a thing (by adding additional modding/tool functionality that directly support this type of creative mission making, therefore making it more attractive to the Creatives), it might just pay off for them in the long run. ps I spent too long replying to this, have a good life!

    • @goreignak Oh I agree, I just had to meme a bit. I haven’t played WT for over a year but a gamemode like this might bring me back. But Gaiijin acts like they really think the way people meme about them so who knows if they’d actually do the rational thing, maybe Boris really does need a new summer home?

    • @MrMattumbo isn’t his name Anton Yudintsev though, and not Boris? (Yes, there truly is a real greedy fuck we can blame for this cluster fuck of a game; besides ourselves that is)

    • Patchouli Knowledge

      @MrMattumbo “sshhhhhh no witnessess”

    • nah they use pillows. They cant afford suppressors comrade.

  14. After the D point capture:

    The mission…the nightmares…they’re…finally…over….

  15. This is how War Thunder’s Naval should be.

  16. Gaijin: Won’t make better game modes
    Community: Fine, I’ll do it myself

    • Battlestations Pacific / Midway

      Square Enix, Inc: Just Wait For 2021

    • That You'dliketoknow

      Google Playstores free eagle app, code for 100 eagles: pha7w

      Just a low amount. It’s a marketing app with offers to receive eagles for trying out games and so forth. Decent, rate it 3.5/5. nothing great but at least preferable over nothing for freetoplayers. All i wanted to say thank you.

    • That You'dliketoknow

      Mode looks very good tho, i’d play. I hope gaijin pays you for the work some day!

  17. Gaijin, please take note of this and implement this as the go-to gamemode: sincerely a naval player

  18. I can’t believe no ones talking about how the OS2U is now a viable aircraft.

    • & the B5N2

    • @Rahadyan4869 This. The B5N series were my favorite WWII planes growing up. It was sad to see Gaijin basically throw them away, but with this they have been given purpose!

    • @KindaFreeXP exactly, i used the B5N most often in ship RB, and it’s oxygen torps can nuke ships instantly, you can get close when you fly low & it’s surprisingly maneuverable in 10m alt

    • ​@Rahadyan4869 I remember using it to focus down the enemy carrier in Air RB way back when. Pretty fun, but you’d only get a single run in before the match ended.

  19. Wait a minute, this doesn’t look Almost Fun. This looks ACTUALLY fun. Can’t be War Thunder…

  20. War thunder youtubers:”Fun!”
    Gaijin:”You are accused of treason and anti-Soviet behavior. The court finds you guilty and sentences you to be shot.”
