Finally it's for tier VIII! of course it's not (Frontline) but still i'm happy... :) P.S. I think it should be 20-25 min per battle and not 15... Because it's a larger maps and  sometimes there is not enough time to catch the last SPG after defending the home base...

So we've had this in place for a few days, and I'm not too impressed.


 

1, Stats for grand battles have been separated from standard random battles.

2. Missions do not always count in grand battles, just standard random battles.


 

Yet if I select Random Battle, and press the Battle button, I can end up in either.


 

WG, you need to fix this, as currently being put into Grand Battles is a waste of playing time for some players. Admittedly, you can select the option not to enter grand battles, but my understanding is that if the battle queue timer passes a certain point, your preferences are ignored.

One word - boring. Why to play 30 vs. 30 with no extra rewards if there is 15 vs. 15 where you can affect team's score more easily? And no camping for 20 minutes.

Really great format on making the artillery missions with honors. You almost every game end up inside top 5 when playing artillery. Maps provide little or no cover and are designed in the normal WOT tunnel way, so you really don't have any choice on where to drive to.

I agree, I played it a lot and it's very good for artilleries, I finished some old OBJ260-T55A secondary missions. On the other hand, I played it with non OP T8 regular tanks, but it wasn't really fun than. I would put this into the game, with an option to play this mode or not. (like right now)

personal missions NOT working in this mode, completed LT14, for T55A, with honors and nothing achieved! (I did 3.2k damage and had over 3k spotting, the mission needs: 2k damage personal/platoon and 2.5k assist personal/platoon,I platooned up with 1 player who had 1.5k spotting and 1.7k damage, so the mission was finished with almost double the requirements but nothing accomplished)
SAD! VERRY SAD!
I will disable this mode and won't play it again, not even in tier 10. Just a WASTE of time!

PS. We won the battle and survived aswell!

If you saved the replay try sending it with a ticket to WG - they might be able to credit it to you.

neah, it's all good, I managed to do the mission right in the next random battle.

my mistake, it was the LT13 mission, LT14 was completed already, now I have to do the LT15, a few in TD and I'll get the 55A. gonna do them all only in randoms, don't trust the GB any more

The Klondike map should be reworked. Now the battle is happening only in 2 locations of the map because the rest of the map is so open, you can not advance from cover to cover. The artillery is overpowered in both existing maps, because the battle is fought in locations with no cover from artillery. In it's current state the grand battle game mode is the best opportunity to make all of the artillery missions with honors.

Love it, I do have Tier X's but somewhere along the line it became my aim to grind every line in WoT. It has become something of an obsession with me and as such I cannot play Tier X battles very often though I do own three or four due to the economics. I am constantly grinding credits and experience to move up the Tech tree's. I love this new mode, with Tier VIII vehicles it can be made to pay and that means I can play without losing loads of credits I need for my next Tier IX or Tier X. Please leave this mode in the game guys as it is a breath of fresh air. In the long run it could do with another map or two and yes as seems to be the prevailing opinion on the thread both the existing maps could do with some tweaks but how is that different to standard maps they get tweaked almost every update. Most of the problems and niggles I have seen posted here are simply teething problems that can be sorted over time. Great fun and something new..... what is not to like? Yee Haa

I thought this is still a thing...

 

Like permanent T10/8 mode.
