Could you please tell us how many people still have Grand Battles enables?

 

For the lulz and giggles I wanted to activate that mode again. However I did not manage to play it once even though I played tier 10 all day long.

If you don’t enjoy the game then stop playing it. Just a suggestion.

That was an actual request. Not even trolling.

I still have it enabled although rarely see it, maybe once or twice a week. Shame as I quite enjoy the megamap.

Thanks for reminding me to disable it.

I played it a few times when it first came out but it just seemed like a novelty.  It didn't really add anything or address any of the issues present in the normal battles.  It didn't even seem to help with the T8 MM issues, probably because the chance to get in grand battles was nerfed massively in that micro patch just after it was released.

Joking aside, you do seem more bitter about the game these days (or at least are more 'vocal' about it).  Is this a 'purple' thing or just a case of certain players actually getting to the end of their patience with WG?

disabled it aw well

 

I like the map, but if it was 15v15 it would be great (perhaps too big but want to find out)

 

but 30v30 on that map allows very little gameplay, just a brainless slugfest

I get them, at completely irregular intervals. Sometimes I'm getting 3-4 30v30s in a row, sometimes whole evening without a single one. One day I had 5 or 6 exactly every other game, one big, one normal, one big again.

 

I think it's highly dependent on how many Tier 10 players are connected to the server - if there's too many to fit in standard matchmaking, then big battles get activated.

It's not about trolling. Many of your recent posts have been just some long whine fest. If you don't like the game then find a game you do like. Not that difficult a concept is it?

And yet you have been here on forum so long that you make a request like that here. Knowing that you have better chance to win in a lottery than get a answer from WG  sigh

EU1 and playing during "prime time" is probably your best bet.

 

It's decent fun because it's different, not because the map design is better. I still have it on, but that's mostly due to personal missions potentially easier to complete with them on.

 

Anyway, it's probably meant more as a test and 'taste' of the Frontline mode that comes soonTM. I can get behind testing stuff like that; hopefully they didn't make a whole new map just for that gamemode as a test though.

Disliking an aspect of the game or the direction they are taking is different to disliking the game.

I have GB turned on, and find it nice. Played something like 4-5 tier 10 battle yesterday, and one of them was a GB.

I play maybe 5 or 6 tier 10 games each night ...usually get 1 or 2 grand battles, still a bit undecided on whether I like it or not.

Just hang at the back of the map at the start of the game like half the team do. Half way through the map its then 15 v 15 ( if your lucky ).

 

I've had game mode switch on and I want to play it a lot more but it's frequency of appearance is erratic for me. I hope they throw in a couple more maps and ramp it up in frequency. I really like the mode.

I dont know. Ofc my patience is wearing thinner by the minute. But do I matter? No I dont. Also all this is for no actual particular reason. Im in a way just fed up. I mean at some point I am going to leave the game.

Give WG 2 more years and they run their product into the ground.

My problem with grand battles is that there is only 1 map. Playing like 40 t10 games a day and getting the same map all the time gets boring quickly.

I have then turned on on my desktop but since I don't play tier X it's irrelevant.

I've had it on since patch day. Only seen it like 4 times. But not a single game the past 2 weeks.
