Frontline on the orher hand...

Well they did say that GB would come for other tiers later in the first video they did. But since it died on tier X, and they have not done much with it. And FL was more popular. I suspect we won't see it. As like I said in the other topic. GB is basically randoms with a bigger map. FL worked because it was not randoms. As in they had objectives. Not cap... again.

They wont make it tier 8 instead of tier X because they want as many factors pulling players into tier X games as possible. They could do 'tier 8 as well as tier X' but they'd have to set it as a preferrential game mode otherwise there just wouldnt be the tier 8 tanks to fill the games.

The only reason any of you picked "Optional" is because you'll turn them off anyway... :sceptic:

 

I think they shouldn't be optional. Make them available for tier 8, 9 and 10.

 

There are two ways to make them work with the top 3 tiers:

  1. Tier 8 tanks could meet tier 9 and 10 tanks, in the same format as random battles. Of course you don't want to be constantly put into a grand battle in your tier 8 tank since with the current mm, you'll more often than not be bottom tier...so the Grand Battles' rarity should be artificially adjusted so you enter a GB map a certain number of times within a set battle count (eg. once in 15 battles?).
  2. Grand Battles would be exclusively single-tier, same as now with tier 10s.

 

They are a map or two (supertesting third map), why would you remove them? I thought everybody wanted more maps? They can always be improved with updates if something's wrong.

The main problem with GB regardless of what tiers were allowed to queue for it, is that you have to queue for random battles to get in to it, you couldn't pay me enough to play randoms any more

 

When's Frontlines coming back :great:

GB made a refreshing change, probably due to new larger maps though, so voted yes.

Now when's coming to T8 ?

I admit I'm on the fence with this one - the bigger maps are fun but should be limited to max 15 per side - just to give everyone some space to manoeuvre.

As it stand right now, they're just bigger versions of the same problem.

While having mandatory GB would be logic, it's also true that GB require higher computational power. Setting them as mandatory would increase the WoT minimum requisites and WG don't like this.

I think i have like 5-6 GB's total, because i tried to do a mission in it. Never played it again, and i will probably never play it again....it's like camp camp camp on  steroids with 4 arta 14  bush wanking TD's killing all active play in first half of the battle. It's like a worse full tier X mm.
