I have not played it on randoms yet. Guess not Lucky enough to drop on it. But i did check it out on team training and i have to say i like it. It has corners and long rangers where you have to be aware of and it is in my eyes a very dynamic map.

Had to uncheck Grand Battles, because Klondike puts my GPU in 2D mode, ot fails to "kick in high gear"

so i get 1-5 FPS.

After trying everything from video drivers to windowed mode, installing ClockBlocker and doing reg edit changes, to removing mods and verify checking game install, i had to just disable Grand Battles because it is the 9.21 update from WG causing the FPS drop and problems.

AND, if i do start a Klondike match, the problem persists after i have excited the match, even in garage.

And thats no joke, it literally moves like in syrup.

Just Moving the mouse around to hit "ExiT Game" button is incredibly difficult.

I have to restart the game client to get back to normal performance.

I can't even give a good opinion about the map because I am not getting into any Grand Battles lately. Would be nice if I could untick standard battles so I could get Grand Battles only :\

Anyway, in the past four days that Klondike hit the servers, I only got three Grand Battles. Of which two battles were in Klondike: I think that the map is well balanced, but that is an easy thing with a map being so symmetric. Down the south, at the harbor village, I find it quite risky to immediately take over the village to do some sniping. Once the enemy is pushed back, it is a really dominant place to be, where I can safely hide my Leopard 1 behind the buildings to get some cover after getting spotted. Up north, at the industrial area, I have no idea how to put my medium tank into good use. I guess this side is only limited to some quick flanking action. Do not try to trade damage at all, because there is no way you can trade in your own favor. In the middle, I have no idea what a medium tank can do there. I just avoid this area and use it as a corridor to relocate myself to where help is needed.

But please, consider what I said about getting into Grand Battles. Allow players to untick standard battles, so they only get Grand Battles. I am getting fed up with this low frequency, which makes go back to lower tiers for some good old seal clubbing. Not so much of a warm welcoming to new players right? I guess there are more high tier players like me that do this to get some fun out of the game.

The new Klondike map is very nice to play. 

Although it is new, it has the vibe of some of the standard maps, so it feels comfortable to play.  

I thoroughly enjoy this new map.

I have a normal ping below 50 and FPS above 70 at all maps except klondyke map.

Ping goes up and FPS drops to 1-5, 100% impossible to play.

So I have turned off grand battles as it ruins everything.

I see on this post that a lot of people have same problem so gear up and fix please

UpDate:

I have changed my graphics card from HD 7970 to GTX 1060 6GB.

But it didnt help, I still cannot play Grand Battles, because of the downclocking bug is excactly the same with the Nvidia card.

 

Which just strengthens my belief it is a game related bug, not a driver issue.

Maybe just my combination of hardware, but others are experiencing the same.

East side is just for snipers. Why do slow heavies get spawned there?

Okay, I am done with it. The frequency of getting into Grand Battles still sucks. Are you guys at Wargaming listening or just posting this kind of **** questions to give us a feeling that you folks are at least pseudo-listening? I still have some days left on my premium account, but this way I am not pumping any additional money into a game where the developers do not listen to their players.

You guys are coming closer and closer to EA Games.

Since the update to 9.21, I've played in one GB battle and that was on the first map.  I really love the large maps especially for tierX tanks... I hate Ensk for TierX because it is soooo flipping small. 

 

So, I've heard from other players in my separate post in these forums that some have turned off GB because it promotes camping.  Truthfully, there is a 1/3 to 1/2 of the team camping and something needs to be done to encourage movement.  FrontLine mode was doing this very well.  Right now, unless GB receives some love, it will be a dead mode in a couple of releases due to lack of interest.

 

Liven the play up, open it up to Tier8-X, give us the choice to play that game mode only if we wish.  Do something.  FrontLine mode was the best I've seen in a while outside of the boring graphics (which was just part of being in the test mode).  Cheers!

I deactivated grand battles because I'd prefer to have less RNG elements in this game.

I like the new map. It has plenty of battle zones and suits all tank classes. Please make more maps like this and start removing the smaller maps for tier 10.

Too chaotic and unworthy to play with lot of occasional FPS issues (RX470)

 

And most importantly - Why game in last update re enabled this mode I dont like to play without my knowledge.

I know I disabled that mode when it first showed up, test server proved it is not worth time nor credits,

but yesterday I started game in tier X tank and found that I'm in ghastly batle, after this masacre finished, I found in setting that this was re enabled.

 

PLEASE - do not make me check that settings every single time I decide to play tier X...
