Finally. I've thought it was scrapped altogether.

there is 2 major problems:

 

1. T-IIIV is second worst tier in the game (just after T-X)

2. 30vs30 is even more pron to domino effect (if main objective would be take and hold a base, and teams would have more then one tank, like in FL, than ti will be 30vs30 all the time)

 

FL looks like much better mode, with high rewords, people lost interest in it, they get sick of praggetto, EBR and Scorpions G all the time, and rush tactic.

 

So I guess most of the people will also turn off GB and people which actually want to play it, will get GB once on 20-30 standard battles.

Well, if you don't like it, just un-tick the box about the "Grand Battles" and you will be out of them ... easy ...

 

... there is no need to complain about something that you can easily avoid.

Pretty cool, since T8 tanks are artificially handicapped by very low DPM (compared to both Tier 7 and Tier 9) they've always been better at a single-tier level. That is why most of them are a lot of fun in Skirmishes/CW.

 

Looking forward to playing this.

Just even numbers which I find rather odd!

Nice, I like grand battles for variation. Maybe increase the game time a bit though? Too often it's a draw.

Do Grand Battles count towards Random Battle vehicle wins yet?

 

I only have them turned off in the random queue at the moment because they didn't last time I tried them - which is weird because they're basically the same as Standard Battles but with more tanks, whereas the other optional Encounter and Assault modes do seem to count towards the same win stats despite being essentially completely different rules-sets in terms of victory conditions.

 

It seems to me that if they don't count towards random battle victories then they should be in a different game mode (like Frontline etc.) rather than appearing in the random queue as some sort of "for-fun" mode. I'm sure Grand Battles are cool and all, but if I play hard (and spend resources) for a win, I feel like it ought to count for something, otherwise just seems a bit pointless (to me at least). :)
