I think they are offered to you randomly when you play a tier 10 tank and have ticked the corresponding battle type.

So WG introduced a mode which we have to pray to RNGesus to be able to play it ? :facepalm:

Yes, what a brilliantly efficient way of popularising a new game mode:

make it available not when the player wants to try it, but when WG feels like it.

My first game after the patch, to try the new Foch - and I got 30 x 30.

 

Grand battles rock!

The cynic in me thinks this will just be a blunt tool to try and control the MM across several tiers (a bit like a plaster over a gaping wound).  Lots of people playing T10 and causing lots of T8 and T9 tanks into T10 battles?  Quick, open a few grand battle matches to suck some T10s into T10 only games and call it a new 'feature'.

Ahh...

 

sneaky WG.

 

So people are FORCED to play tier10... until you decide whether they can access a Grand Battle or not. Obviously this will boost the use of tier10, the silver eating machines.

 

Unfair move, as always. Why am I not surprised at all.

 

No regards.

Didn't WG say around 30% availability for megamap so it's in the random mix. 

BTW it's rather good....

I am certainly interested in trying it out. What I am not interested in is playing match after match after match in tier 10 simply waiting for this bigger map to come up.

I think they said at Gamesom that the chance of a 30v30 depends on how many tier 10s there are in the queue so, yes, I think it's there to help the mm.  But they are making tier 10 more attractive with Bonds so they may need it to cope with even more Tier 10s in the queue.  Expect GBs at tier 8 in the future if there are too many tier 8s in the game.

So people will try a few tier 10 games, not get a grand battle.  Get over it and move back to tier 7/9 and the GB thing is a flop.

Wonderful for MM as always.  We'll tell them what they want to play attitude...  same attitude that has resulted in so many companies failing.

Thanks for that, cleared up some of my ignorance on the matter.  Are bonds going to be attainable in ALL T10 battles or just Grand battles?

 

T8 grand battles could be interesting, certainly from a premium tankers point of view.

So, does buying Fort Knox increase your chances? Just asking.

In the same Gamescom interview I think they said it's all T10 battles that are only T10 i.e. battle level 12.  T8 would make a lot of sense I think.

Grand battles

Ranked battles

Random battles with only tier 10.
