Anybody else getting into the loading screen on Grand Battles, and it just hangs there?

The red loading bar under the team list isn't moving, and the Esc key doesn't do anything...

I can still Tab out to the desktop, so I'm assuming it's just the game crashed?

I just had the same but at normal Tier 8. I think EU2 is down...

Best bit? I just closed the window and re-booted WoT, only to be dropped straight back to the same screen...

Just had it on a normal battle, (Overload T8) still stuck on loading screen after numerous restarts. it's either a very long game 14+ mins so far or it's knackered

​I'm in the same battle :D

 

You're playing in M44 on the opposing team, naughty!

 

OK, it seems it's back online :)

Similar description of a game failing to start was described earlier, so it might be server issues. Not sure why it wouldn't load into battle, though.

 

If it's not the server, blame these guys:

Okay, thanks guys! Glad it's not just me...

Having won 13/18 over today, and advanced PMs a bit, maybe it's telling me something :teethhappy:

Launching the game without mods did not help. 

 

Now it's ok again, but I'd avoid EU2, just in case :)

These are mods. Do you have them in your WoT folder? Yes; I believe we need to know. (Only the usual Aslain's xvm pack, doesn't usually cause difficulty...)

 

Aside from that, standard procedure of deleting WoT's cache. How do I do this? Not a bad idea to do it anyway (maybe except the preferences file). Also, try running in standard graphics, because potatoes. Oh, and update and/or rollback drivers, hardly a bad idea anyway.

Okay, seems to be back up now, and it's listed that battle as a draw...

and if you check the scores you will see everyone scored 0 hits and the round lasted 15 minutes.  Sadly I uninstalled/reinstalled cleared cache etc trying to figure out what was wrong at my end, when in fact it's server side error...

As others mention, there are ongoing server issues that act out similarly (I edited my post to reflect that). Mods wouldn't be able to cause those issues.

 

Generally it's the first thing to get rid of. Same deal as checking Pingplotter when about to complain about lag.

Don't know about you. But my FPS from a steady 122 drops to about 12 when in close combat with the enemy. Now, I don't think its my hardware. I'm thinking it's the game. There updates have resurfaced the old fps dropout problem again!
