This is another way from WG to manipulate players not get bonds.

You will never earn enough bonds trough grand(fail) battle, or pure tx match. Just do the math.

Grand battle is bad, map is epic joke, another corridor map for HT&camping TD's&clickers.

 

 

And T8 MM is still EPIC FAIL, all the time t10.

Hi Ludi,

 

Grand battles are part of the Random Battles queue, when you activate the option in the settings. The Grand Battle appears randomly in the queue.

Hi Furlock,

 

The Grand Battles are appearing randomly in the queue, there's a chance of getting the mode (same as for Encounter and Assault modes). If you play Tier X regularly, you will definitely get into Grand Battle sooner or later.

 Hi Leo,

 

The Grand Battles are not only option to get the Bonds. We will have new season of Ranked Battles running soon and we will introduce more options to get bonds in the future.

Yes, ranked battles are the only way to earn enough bonds for improved equipment, but that's only for better players.

Average player will never earn enough bonds trough random&grand battles.

Average bond income per game is 4.5, so for one equipment average player needs 1111 games. Grand battle frequency is 10% and chance for pure TX is probably not more because current MM forces 3/5/7 games, so you will need at least 5000 TX games for one piece of improved equipment, lol.

A problem I have with this mode is that it does not count for the top of the tree mission, so when I have to remember to disable this mode when I am playing the mission tank and then enable the mode once more. Why does not this mode count for the mission?

I find the back of the bases far too OP for camping ATs ... at the end of the game, 3 ATs can easily hold the position for a long time. There is not easy way to advance, the Swedish AT are extremely good at these places and makes the game at the end very frustrating and slow in the best cases. I think there should be easy ways to flank these positions from the left and right.

To bad that WG doesn't share you opinion. GB map is double size of regular map, and what did they do? 3 large corridors that split into 3 smaller corridors.

I originally thought grand battles would suck because the credit rewards were going to be just the same as random battles. Meaning it's yet another credit sink when people already have problems getting credits in the first place.

 

But oh boy was I surprised that not only that was right but they are a type of random battle so you can't even select that game mode at all.

 

Enjoy everyone turning them off WG.

 

Edit: Oh right, that doesn't really helps WG understand what must be done cause I'm just complaining and "not offering sollutions".

 

So for WG understading what I'm saying is. Make it so that grand battles can be selected to play exclusively. Not as a type of random battle but as a side choice so that you are 100% sure that you will play a grand battle. Second and just as important, make it so that even a non premium account will make money out of grand battle, even if you lose.

 

WG wants more people to play at higher tiers, this has been expressed many times because most people tend to play around tier 6 or 8. This is not because people don't have higher tier tanks or don't like to play their high tiers. It's because you lose credits playing at higher tiers. It takes a lot of time farming credits to do a few high tier games.

 

WG should have changed this long ago. Looking at WoWS it's clear they learned the lesson, you always make credits no matter which tier you play. Why did this lessons they learned have not crept into WoT? It's anyone's guess but ultimatly, if you want players to play higher tier, make it worth their time!

Top job introducing a mode most of your player base will never see.

Well I really enjoy it so far, but then I'll probably only ever play arty on it. Including 30 players aside is great, I'd like to see this on some smaller maps as it would be absolute mayhem and a lot of fun. Maybe for an xmas special or something?

Played it 4 times so far. 4 times the same procedure. Rather the ride or left side collapses and the game is lost.

It's rather easy to get some kills,  however I did not yet find the strategy to do a lot of damage. Need fast tanks for that (Grille, BC, Strv).
