So yesterday i decided to come back and test those so called "Grand Battles".

I activated the options on the settings and played 6 games with only tier X tanks. None of them were grand battle.

 

I don't even have to criticize more, enough was said.

 

We should be able to choose if we wanna queue to those, not getting picked randomly

No idea. Not seen it all day. Only gotten twice in xxx amount of tries since patch day. I know it's only a 10% chance to get it, but still. It's kinda annoying when you want to test it out. But only get 15 vs 15 on Paris all day.

 

I get why they have hidden it in randoms. As any game mode outside it usually don't last long. But unless the 10% chance to get it is due to a server strain concern etc. Then I kinda get it. But they have plans to add it to other tiers to later, so who knows. Might be more common then.

This is the latest WG scam to force people into playing tier 10 and spend their credits so they give them more money later.

New game modes is not gonna force anyone to grind a new line. As Grand battles is coming to lower tiers to later. So don't really see the point of that. As that's what the 155 premium swap was for. That's what you get people to spend free xp they bought on. Not a new mode.

People are bored of old crappy maps and want to see the new one so instead of playing their tier 5-9, they go play tier 10 - expecting to see that new map.

And since it's so rare ppl end up losing a lot of credits since it's too expensive to play tier 10.

Now you have to buy premium for a month to recover those credits.

Many many many players (including me) disabled them, as they offer no motivation to play.

No credit bonus, no mastery of excellence and no other bonus to bother with GB in my opinion.

On top of that very unbalanced map. The positions for south/west side are far superior to north/east team.

Unless you got no any decent player to use them, its boarderline impossible to lose from south/west team side.

Hence many people cant be bothered and disable GB.

 

PS : And yeah its huge camp / gold spam.

I barely got them aswell till I moved to server 1 and got one every other battle almost.

Have to say I'm liking this mode.

I played one battle in my tier ten and got six grand battles.

Well, I'm actually getting it 2/3 times. I just play my 5a once here and there.

Getting them every 3 or 4 battles. Perfect balance so far.

I got 2 out of 4 yesterday but tbh, the big [edited]TD's sitting behind the base make them kinda pointless to play. The just decimate the middle ground and mostly invisible too.

Almost every 4-5th battle is grand battle to me at the moment, so maybe that would be a "regular".

But in my very first grand battle(two days ago?) i see someone mentioned and annoyed by the fact that he is only got grand battles all day long.

So maybe he is not was the only one that is why WG changed something.
