Do you mean "grand battle only" option or "grand battle as only option"?

It's coming, right after we get the no arty option. Rest assured.

Well, for the first case, if WG can't fix tier 8 mm, I think that the "grand battle only" checkbox may appear, who knows! :)

But I don't think we will have grand battle as only game mode, cause the computationl cost is really high and some low end PC can't support them.

Funny you should say that, but arty does well in these simply because they are mostly the full 15 mins. 4 arty per side is too much though. knock it down to two per side....

That would actually be decent - 2 per side in grand battles and 1 per side in randoms. There would be downsides, though - every game would have arty in it (no more arty free battles, this would suck), and/or waiting time in the cue would increase for arty players (which i assume they wouldn't like). If WG found a way to avoid or at least mitigate these two issues, it would actually be a viable idea, imho. :)

I'd happily pay extra if Standard mode was made optional.

Maaaaybe in the future... :P

 

I don't think it would work for now, it's too new for this.

 

Nonetheless, suggestion noted!

As someone who is not fond of arty this is surprisingly positive from you, Psychobear. ;)

Nooo, just wanted an option for Grand Battles only, preferably with less arty than at current levels (most I have seen is 4 per side). I would not mind waiting in a queue for longer.

 

For me, the games almost always last 15 minutes, there's always something to shoot at, maps are huge and no getting spotted in the first 10 seconds.

 

Out of 36 tier X games today, only 2 have been GB's... I want moar!!!!

It would be good. It can be both seperated mod and a part of random battles.

It would mean then, NO random ?

Currently in the settings, the random game option is selected, but de-activated. It would suggest that this can be an option like Kandly says "a day..."

 

But it would mean also that WoT has reached a point where

- the number of tiers 10 in the game is overwhelming

- the "Beta" phase is done (it is not : there is still Beta next to the maps' name)

- their are more "Grand Battle" maps, as playing over and over on only 2 maps would make you selecting the best tank/config especially for this map (50% of chance), hence putting at a disadvantage other players keeping it appearing randomly

- the "gold" system is reviewed as GB favours too much gold spam in case you have not noticed (I support the ancient idea of limiting the amount of gold you can carry, variable for each tank, as it was in the old "Historical Battle" mode...)

- the selection can not be made permanent, for not unbalancing the regular random matchmaking system, and allow a rotation of players.

- ... and perhaps have the GB opened to other tiers (and the same tier) to GB tiers 9, 8 ?

- forgot something ?

Would make the hunt for bonds a lot easier.
