So, something useful recently was posted on the World of Tanks EU portal (finally). It seems that the developers have prepared for the 0.9.7 update a new system that enables players to create their own team with custom name and logo that they can use to partake in the team battles mode, officially.
Teams range from 4 to 12 players (they will be permanent as well) and like League of Legends, they will be categorized on leagues.
There will be six leagues, each will consist of 4 divisions. To have your team promoted, you must reach a number of points. Or, if you’re unfortunate enough, you can be demoted if you go below 30 points (it’s probably a placeholder, it may be changed later).
Team Battles will now work on seasons. Once the season ends, your team’s rank will be reset – which means a new adventure shall begin!
I think this is a good initiative from Wargaming that encourages team play and tactics, although it’s a bit ‘inspired’ from Riot’s way of doing things. You can check the full article here, on the EU portal.
