One week only? To bad it's hidden in randoms and people have to have it enabled to test it. It's why I have not seen a GB on tier X in months even with it on. Tho I suspect I will see it on tier 8 more often. It won't be enough when it's hidden in a random mode to even get a feel for it if it works then I suspect. 

 

It should be it's own selected mode mixed with players from randoms that have it. Then we could really see if it worked I suspect.

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

Wonder how many games MM-template will make you play regular (= bottom tier) before you get a GB match. Bonus of Frontlines was if I selected a crap tank like the T69, I knew 100% sure that next game I would play other Tier 8s. Now I may have to suffer 5? 10? 20? games before 'enjoying' myself vs same tier...?

Just disable it when you are playing tier 10 and enable it when you are playing tier 8. Option is in the menu, just 3 clicks away.

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.

 

This especially with the Xtra progress bs for 8-10 means its gonna constant bottom tier games untill finally an all tier 8 game then its on one of the maps no one knows with 3 arta on both sides front lines please or the ability to only play tier 8 grand battles rather than normal so our tier 8 premiums and standard tier 8's that need a grind can actually be played and have fun 

this is a step in the rite direction but its a baby step.

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

 

Or turn it off when you do.

 

and then play what in randoms tho? Tier 10 is pretty much the only fun and relevant tier at the moment, And having to disable it everytime i want to try a few tier 8s is just a huge inconvenience and makes no sense.

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.

FRONTLINES NOW PLEASE.

 

Frontline will come in January 2019. They are fixing technical and gameplay issues and maybe adding one more map and making it available for other tiers as well.

Just convince 60+ people to uncheck all the other boxes for a week and you're good to go: GB every match. :B

Edit: oh, wait, it looks like you can't uncheck the standard battles box... Nevermind then. :hiding:

A good idea but what everyone in my clan is begging for is more Front-line.

You realise how stupid your post is? That checkbox applies for your next match. If you press battle with a tier 8 , im quite sure it wont throw you in with one of your tier x's. When you play tier x just disable it again.

 

As for the mode itself i find it pointless. Its like 2-3 games played simultaneously on the same map, since more or less 10-15 tanks play on they side with no influence on what the other side is doing, other than maybe losing a game that your side is winning. 15-15 is more than enough.

As many said, we want option to play only this, not to wait to get this among random battles. And it would be nice if there is some credits boost for playing this mode :)

​Yes, you can complete your missions on this mode! :)

I turned this mode off long time ago and I won't turn it on. ;)

Besides.... This mode is done only for grabbing as much tier 8 tanks as it possible for increasing Your love to 3/5/7 and many many many one level battles for tier 8... :P

That's all folks... :(

Oh dear WG.

 

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

 

:honoring:

 

It will only be as good as the player using it, apart from the gun the armour is it's let down.

How come, this is for tier 8 vehicles only if I read it right, it feels like a lame version of Front line, but well done WG for offering something new, this is a step in the right Direction.

Dear WG i can give you feedback right now before testing:

Accuracy, spotting range, view range and render range are to bad/small for maps of this size.

Base camping or similar tactic are to effective on this maps. Base areas/"red line" should have near to zero cover and middle of map should have more cover (hills, stones, houses ect.)

Your game is clearly designed as close/mid range brawl fest... don't just enlarge typical wot map with same mechanic as normal game, it won't work well!

 

Just bring back frontline :) and stop making fools from yourself.
