yeah sure okay 

 

BUT

 

let me disable it for tier 10 and enable it for tier 8.

 

Because i'd like to try it, but full tier 10 is bad enough, let alone 30v30 full tier 10 with 5 arty. and im not going to enable it and even risk getting into a tier 10 grand battle even ONCE

Good initiative. It would be even better if you could choose to play this type of battle only - like special battles, stronghold battles, so you don`t have to grind through 5 bottom tier normal games to get to one of these T8 grand battles. 

The best of course would be to bring the Frontline back in the game, no need to change much, just add another map.

 

I really like they limited the number of SPGs to 3 (like in other Grand Battle, T10). I think the way to go is to limit the SPGs to two in grand battles and 1 in normal 15x15 battles.

Thanks for offering something different but I'm not interested in that mode at all. When is Frontline coming back?

Oh dear WG.

 

Looks like it's time to see how powerful the Defender is with pure same tier MM...

Nice idea, but I also think that it would be nice to have 2 settings options, one for tier VIII and another for tier X grand battles.

Interesting. Can you complete Personal Missions (both First Front and Second Front) in this mode?

No thanks give me back 100% FrontLine. not this copy paste crap with 0 reward to it and only a CHANCE to get into a Grand Fail.

Finally. Especially after frontline, I was surprised that tier 8 grand battles haven't became a thing. This will help on tier 8 MM too and will make more fun for the tier. Not to mention the extra opportunities to make more credits with tier 8 premiums. Nice move in my opinion.

Meh, Defender is at it's best against few enemies but if you got to fight multiple enemies who are shooting you from every direction with clickers and tds, I don't think it holds, because it's strong only frontally. Also, on long range its gun sucks. Progetto or Caernarvon AX will propably be better options, tds maybe the best, or even clickers.

Well you could always, you know, not play tier X.

 

Or turn it off when you do.

Community asks for frontline return asap..

WG reply, heres tier 8 grand battles and by the way, we'll throw you in the utterly crap tier 10 grand battle if you dont remember to disable, just so we can prop up that failing mode.

So I guess it will be a sweet time for some tier 6 fun while the tier 8's that doesn't play GB will be in an even worse position than they are now. If that's possible.  :hiding:

I look forward to using Patriot and Canervon AX. As they get farmed pretty hard on the 3/5/7 lol train...

 

Overall its good to bring Grand Battles for T8. Only issue is WG control how often you get it so you'll still be feeding T10 a lot of the time unlike Frontline.
