In the second half of last year I took a break from playing tier 10 but the Grand Battles have enticed me to try again and I really enjoy them because even a mediocre player like me can do enough to break even, while most wins do rake in hefty moolah. 

Having begun to play tier 10 a few days ago, I have been getting surprisingly many Grand Battles, in fact more than ordinary battles. What is your experience? Have WG tweaked it compared to the early days when people complained about GB coming up so rarely? Or have I been just lucky?

Played it twice I think and it was crap and haven't bothered since, who seriously wants to play tier 10 versus tier 10 that pretty much people spam prem ammo all the time.

What disturbs me is the high number of SPGs in GBs,

they really ruin the fun when I play in my T92 HMC.

I rarely play tier 10, but out of the last 10 battles I ended up 3 times on the new grand map. And I have to say, I really like it.

It's also not a credit-graveyard like the previous tier10-only gamemodes, so I will definitely play tier 10s more often

Maybe they should have specified new game modes that don't suck?

Turned them off after 3 battles lol. Even more claustrophobic than the normal battles lol, the maps are waaaaay too small for 30 vs 30, flanking is even more impossible, and the maps are even more corridor festy. It could have worked if wargaming wasnt crap.

 

Also, 30 vs 30 makes it pretty much impossible to have a large enough impact to carry. When im playing with 14 bots, its sometimes possible, but 29 bots? Forget it.

Only played GB's on the Test Server and that was enough for me to turn them off.

Almost every time I select my Patton. I am not exaggerating. 5 out of 6 or something. But I don't play it one battle after another.

Yes, more space to maneuver. 

The usual maps seem more and more claustrophobic to me nowadays, just depressing. 

Would rather lose on a GB map than play a smaller map. 

Pity tier 8 tanks cannot have GB maps as well.

Surely all those players who complain about not getting skill-based match-making would be enjoying grand battles because they're pitted against opponents who are at least equal in experience to have tier 10 tanks.

 

Unless those same players really want to be clubbing lower tier opposition while playing the strongest tanks in the game. But that can't be right. :unsure:

While I don't have grand battles enabled all the time, I'm pretty sure I get way more 3-5-7 games as top tier when playing T10. Not a ton of fun, but man you can do a lot of stupid crap with Maus and get away with it without any real penalty. :D

Yes, because idiots in WOT cannot reach tier 10.

Do you need help with the phrase "equal in experience"?

Nope, I find it entirely redundant in the current WOT progression system.
