Bring back Tier8 Grand Battles as a permanent mode, please!

At least I enjoyed them a lot. And a nice break from the random maps.

I second this motion.

Can we get a third?

If this was a separate mode i'd definitely be interested.

I support this. The T8 grand battles revitalized my play at tier 8; It was great knowing you had a decent chance not landing against higher tiers in your tank & actually be able to play out the strengths of your tier 8 tank in full, without being outplayed by a higher tier tank stats.

Not a huge fan, but God knows removing T8s from the matchmaker was a good thing. I expect an announcement about further plans when they are done analyzing their data.

 

Be patient, though. It takes about four months for WG to "realize" that a tank needs to be nerfed. It's taken about 18 months for them to realize that maybe their matchmaking is a pile of crap that they need to, for perhaps the first time, live test in order to do it properly.

 

These things heavily depend on how much of a rush they're in. Logic suggests that it would be in their best interest to launch changes when the game is most popular, i.e. December/January. Godspeed.

Agreed.

About the only thing I would change is to keep it 15 vs 15 - give everyone some room to manoeuvre.

How about Grand battles with regular +/-2 mm?

 

Could be done for everything above tier 6.

 

Also I think 30 players is too many, even with the bigger the maps it's too crowded.  20 would be better.

It was a week long test. And that week had the most fun I had in WoT since Frontline mode.

I did not like it, but why not, it will put of the pressure on tier 8 and improve standard MM.

While I strongly hate Nebelburg due to it being too much camper friendly, Klondike, the full tier 8 MM and the fact that there is a new map in working make me wish tier 8 GB came back too.

Agreed, I want to chose to play grand battle and pick my tank accordingly not chose a tank and then hope to get grand battles.

I was not a huge fan of it. But it was still a nice option to have now and then for tier 8. One downside is that since it's in randoms, it still doesn't count towards your service record, as in battles played and WR. As one day I had more wins then losses on my IS-M in randoms. But all the losses were normal battles, all the wins were GB. So it's WR still dropped like a rock :confused:

 

Tho I would like to see it as an optional mode on its own too. As well as hidden in randoms for those that want it. As in I could choose when I wanted to play it, as well as have it as a random mix for tier 8/X. It's not something I want to play all the time. But as you said, it's a nice break from randoms. Something you need, now and then.

I liked it and would welcome a return, the only issue I had with it was getting GB repeatedly to the point where it got so tedious that I disabled the mode. Mix up the rotation a bit more or put GB on a separate mode like Frontline.

Same here.

 

I won every single GB and I was playing a lot of tier 8 grinding stock Italian tier 8 med.

 

When GB finished it's win rate went up by 27%.  Coincidence, I think not.
