So as some might know, in 9.20 a new gamemode will be inplemented, grand battles, basicly 30vs30 on a bigger map. This is not a seperate gamemode but will be in the random que like assault and you can turn it off.

Its also tier X only and you can earn bonds tied to exp trough this and other tier X only battles.

I have seen people complain about this but I think implementing this gamemode is pretty genius and is a solution to 2 problems:

 

1) Tier X only, first may seem like a stupid restriction but remember this is implemented in the random que and takes 60! Tier x tanks out of the que. Now tier 8 atm has a big problem that it gets in tier10 battles all the time.  So implementing this gamemode is going to partially solve that problem since big ammount of tierX tanks will be pulled out of the que releaving pressure on the MM and giving tier8 more toptier matches.

 

2) Earning of bonds, also a complained about issue since you had to nolive to get them and only 2000 players got something. Implementing it in tierX only battles gives a new way to earn bonds that is not time dependant and no competetion is required while still keeping it endgame content. Since its tied to xp its also likely to be linear meaning everyone gets some but good players get it faster. 

 

I hope this explains some descissions WG made with this mode.

Interesting thoughts but as this is WG I'm expected tier VIII to have to wait an age before there's enough tier X tanks to create a battle.

I wonder (as this is not included in the mode description) if you it will be possible to complete personal missions in it. In the end, it's 'random battle' mode...That could make my 8k damage + 5kills TD15 mission a tad easier.

Any exclusive tier 10 game mode is a load of bowlocks by definition.

Great! I never play my tier X tanks as there's no more grinding to do, good to see that they will get their own game mode.

You can & will run out of ammo on a lot of tanks.

Meta will differ as well.

I am looking forward for this new game mode. More HP per battle, offers better net income possibility per game.

How will it effect MOE  (will you be forced to play it to get 3 marks?).

Will it effect PM?

I'm hopeful, combining it with random battles is a good idea - an even better idea would be to turn off 'Standard' gamemode, in case you'd rather queue for 'GBs' only.

 

Would work wonders for other tiers as well - Encounter and Assault are inherently more interesting gamemodes on generally better maps. Turning off standard battles could e.g. only work for up to 30 seconds in the queue before ignoring it. 

 

On the ammo issue, it's somewhat interesting if there's no place to reload ammo, though it'll make running full premium ammo kind of important.

Do you really think WG has considered this yet? :P

 

My guess would be that it'll be considered a separate gamemode either at launch or via a micropatch two weeks later after massive complaints. I.e. you get a bit of time to farm it hard.

They stated:

- you will be able to get moe and do PMs in this gamemode

But also:

- the gamemode will not affect random battle statistics and will have a seperate tab

 

So i think they wont influence normal randoms moe but there will be 2 seperate moe, randoms battle ones and grand battle ones.

This made me laugh... and then a little sad as I realised this isn't beyond the realms of possibilities with regards to WG.

Oh, according to TAP:

https://thearmoredpa...tes/#more-53411

 

  • In Grand Battles AND X tier ONLY Random Battles you’ll be able to get Bonds.

 

Makes even more sense to actually want T10-only games... which from what I can gather aren't really popular. Funny how the complainers aren't going for lower tiers instead.... though ultimately it's a map issue. Fingers crossed the new map won't be a giant 'vision gaming' campfest like every T10-only battle can quickly turn into.

But those lights wont meet lowe in those games, will they? So obviously your comparison is wrong, the t10 lights will only meet t10 tanks, which obviously unlike 2 tiers lower heavies dont have 400 viewrange...

 

... oh wait a second

Maybe the barrel should grow to reflect your GB-MOEs? :trollface:
