"There are plans for Grand Battles to move into lower tiers.

Unlike Ranked Battles, those plans are already underway."

I log into game, select a tank, click battle. Any other notion, concept or gameplay scares me a little and makes me angry.. They changed the garage layout to feature missions and other things available to the tank and I don't like that either.. it shows missions I can't play, why would you do that? WHY!!!!

Probably not, but the obvious idea would be to introduce grand battles into the most popular tiers. The main fault with the current matchmaking seems to be that the 3-5-7 pattern doesn't give way to creating single-tier battles for popular tiers; grand battles might be a way around that. That's why 9.18 MM is considered by many to be better than the current one, as the variation between patterns was larger.

 

(Gotta wonder why they love their 3-5-7 so much, right? Apparently a lot of players think it's fun to simply follow and support high-tier tanks almost every game. Also, the top three tanks inherently have a good chance of having a very nice battle, which makes sure that almost any player gets to have a memorable battle once a week or whatever. Good for profit.)

Yeah grand battles seemed like a logical way to ease the burden on T8.  This won't be the case now if T8 tanks are also fed into grand battles.

So... if 3/5/7 is what the MM tries to do in a standard 15 vs 15, then in a 30 vs 30 game it will be 6/10/14 ?! Then, in theory, a tier 8 tank will see 6 tier 10s, 10 tier 9s and another 13 tier 8s... gud fan, comrade, Da!
I really doubt they'll make grand battles single tier only, as their balancing issues will come to light pretty damn hard.

I believe grand battles are supposed to be single tier only?  I might be wrong there...

Might do if they restrict lower tiers to Tier 8 where they have too many players.

Perhaps when they say move into lower tiers they mean all same tier battles at tier 9,8,7 etc

That's the way I'd read it.  They could use it to skim 60 tanks off into a match if the matchmaker had too many tanks of a particular tier to deal with.

You won't have to, it's optional just like encounter and assault

Great I like me the megamap, I don't mind facing T10 in my T8 TD,  It  happens now and quite content with the idea. But if WG decide single tier so much the better.
Bring it on:)
