Tankers with tier 10's should have a choice in settings like with grand battles, but where they could check a box to play ONLY tier 10 gamemode, so they can't meet tier 8 and 9s. This would make it easier to earn bonds, and improve the matchmaking for the lower tiers.

 

Win win. Change my mind.

Yeah but not everyone cares about gun marks tho.

The 4 arty is annoying as stepping on legs yes.

it's not Grand Battles, as you get them only once in a while, especially if no one plays it. Now you end up filling tier 8 battles a lot of times, while needing a big chunk of hp for a mission for example, or just to grind bonds.

You just explained why WG won't do that.

Not really. The main problem with the template MM is that there are too many T8+T9 tanks and way to few T4-7 tanks in the queue, not so much because of the T10s.

And it's hidden in randoms, you can play tier X all day and not get it. You can't select it only as its own mode. Something they really should tbh. Some hate the mode, or even pure tier X games. But others love it. So I don't see the issue with it not being it. It could still pick from randoms too for those that have it on there.

If gunmarks counted for GB, it would make it borderline impossible for those that don't play or don't get GB. It was on in CT when GB did appear, it did wreck everything pushing the mark needed on some tanks close to 10K vs what they have now. And with just randoms, that's not happening. It was like getting an ace badge on tier 1 back in the day when people played proving ground vs AI that also counted. You needed 1500 xp to ace an tier 1 in randoms.  And 4 arties? that's one more arty with 2x more targets. Tbh I get hit less often there then I do on a small map with 3. But campaign missions still work.

I personally like all tier 10 games as you tend to get slightly more reliable teams.

 

Tier 8 mm is horrible but added to that, the huge influx of rental punks and the preposterous amount of horror noobs who play at tier 8 with 20 battles and you have the pooh hurricane that is tier 8.

 

I hate being in the top 3 in my tier 10 as I nearly always fail to pull my weight, or if i do pull my weight the team of nincompoops are all dead leaving me and a Foch the last guys alive...this happened 80 games in a row! 100% true even if there is no Foch one appears to help me at the end of a game! Must be the Foch mod im running its called guardian Foch mod vers3.2

 

Personally I think it should be tier 1 vs tier 10 only.

 

1 tier 10 on each team and the rest all tier 1's

 

I'd take on  a type 5 in the T1 Cunningham any day pfff easy win

Yeah but Tier 10 players would whine it's not fair because they have no Tier 8 cannon fodder. So it would end up like Grand Battles - a fail.

Can't see how tier 10 players would cry, if they have the option to keep it like we have it now?

When i play T10, oftentimes (not always) i want to get into full tier 10 battles, for the possibility to earn bonds and to play grand battles. 

 

Would be a nice feature indeed!
