Played 23 games in Tier 10's today, not one Grand Battle so far. They haven't switched this off already have they? Or have so many players disabled the option the MM can't fill one?

The MM will create one when there are too many tier 10 to create a 3-5-7 or too many 15v15 tier 10 battles, not the other way round.

Same here. In the first few days I had it a lot and now perhaps once a day.

I had half a dozen in the first couple of days, every one a loss.  At that point I stopped playing T10s again...

Had quite a few a couple of days ago, 20-23:00 CET. There might be some difference between servers, though EU1 is typically more populated and thus usually your best bet.

MM created way too many during first few days. It was patched/fixed so now they're rare

 

only played it once.

I only tried playing Tier X twice in the past couple of weeks, both times in the evenings and both times instantly Grand Battles.. sadly.

I`ve checked it off in the settings as I am not enjoying it at the moment. Won a few, lost a few, don`t miss them to be honest.

 

And I really don`t like the left/right team interface. It should make it easier to see who is left alive, but I feel it quite the opposite. I would much rather have the old teamlist, but longer. I got room on my monitor for it. :)

I haven't seen any grand battles, but then again, I also haven't played any tier X since the patch.

So, I can't really complain, can I.

I can't help thinking that lager maps would maybe give am opportunity for lights to work again as scouts, but from what I've seen on videos, the map has a lot of dead unusable ground surrounding it so it isn't much larger at all, and 90% of the action is in the breaking zones on either side of the map.

In short, nope.

Yes and no regarding the scouts. Scouting is key in the mid to late game, but if you get seen you basically just evaporate with how many guns are looking your way.

Personally, about 1/3 of my tire X games are Grand Battles. Quite enjoyable mode. North side is the best IMO, but that's propbably because I only have IS-4, that has poor gun dep.

It is too crowded for scouts to really work.
