Actually really looking forward to this, I need a change from standards randoms and an excuse to play my T10s.  This might, at last, be it....

I would like to ask one simple question. What is going to happen with ammunition? Some tanks like B-C very often face problems with ammunition and they run out of shells during a 15v15 battle. I guess this situation will occur more often in a 30vs30 battle. Any idea? Thanks in advance!

The idea is good but this is probably doomed to fail. Maybe not in the very begining but after a month or two it will very likely have a huge decline in players to the point that nearly no one is playing.

 

The reason for this being that tier 10 tanks cost a lot to play. If WG does raises the credits won in battle to profitable levels then it might just have enough players wanting to play it, but otherwise it's doomed to fail from the onset.

 

One very important thing to remember is that first impressions is everything. People will play one or two games and if they feel like the rewards aren't good enough, most will quit there and never touch it again even if it's made better in the future. So if WG wants this to go anywhere, they better give the players a very good first impression.

Well played it now several times on CT.

It seems to have something for everyone, town, hill in centre with a ruin and plenty of open space.

Looking forward to play in 'normal' battle.

Just one thing I noticed on announcement...

WG call it a Respawn Point, perhaps a typo!

Just a thought re ammo. As some have said previously u could run out of shells maybe it's a case of making every shot count otherwise ramming speed:)

So you will basically not separate Grand Battle statistics with Random Match statistics? If that's how it will work, you can easily say good bye to Ace Class matches in randoms, at least on tier X. We still suffer from a problem that "Proving grounds" made for tier I and II vehicles, which cannot be aced or require monster matches.

 

Also, a lot bigger HP pool means there'll be more damage done in Grand Battles -> therefore, players with weaker PCs that disable grand battles will suffer from noticeably worse stats than those that play Grand Battles.

 

Please make separate stats for random matches and grand matches.

GJ wargaming i am really looking forward to this :)

But what about MOE? will grandbattles get its own MOE like a speciel golden mark for being top 99% in grandbattles for that specifik vehicle. That will be fun if you could add that. But again great work ;)

my only problem is with the 4 arty .... that in the end game will focus 1-2-3 taks to the grave

 

 

REMOVE ARTY or make a server without arty  and let players decide if they want it!!!

When will any of the cool new game modes and epic battle sizes be coming to the other tiers??

 

EDIT: By this I mean to tiers which are going to be fun to play, don't require 2 years to grind to, and don't lose thousands of credits every victory. No incentive whatsoever to move to the higher tiers at this point.

Everything sounds great and I can't wait for grand battles to come live, BUT WG please rethink the whole medal things, make just seperate medals which can be gained only in grand battles, please don't just adjust existing medals, because then they will just loose their value, just make some new medals - and many people would like to see some new medals in game, it has been years since any new medals

Would like to hear something about SPECIAL statistics just for grand battles and the whole ammo issue, because for some tanks like FV 215b 183 ammo is crucial
