Just a quick question, have WG removed Grand Battles from Tier 8 as not had any sinc the last frontline week. (and yes, it is ticked in  the settings)

Was kinda wondering the same thing. Played around 20 battles in T8 tanks Friday evening and 0 GBs...

 

EDIT: was never top tier either, only middel tier twice, the rest of the time same tier or bottom tier.

Unchecked GB but same about tX : I was much more with tX than recently (on average about 3 tX out of 5, 1 with t9 and one full t8).

I suspect the same thing happened as it did to tier X. I've not seen GB on tier X for months. And I only did see 2 GB when it was added to tier 8. Even with a tier 8 grind going all day. But it's not for everyone, and if too many have it off. MM won't find enough to start games all the time. And it will be less and less of it.

 

As I've not read them turning it off either.

Thanks to this thread I checked out when I had my last grand battles (as it has been a while indeed & i enjoy them). Last one was two weeks ago with the Foch 155 & was a fluke, as it was the only Grand Battle I had that weekend.

For T8 I have to go back 3 weeks, where I ended up with 4 Grand Battles in 9 battles total with the KV-4. Quite the spike for such low appearance in general.  And then I have to go back for at least a month to see another grand battle prior to these. 

 

My Maus hasn't seen a grand battle in months :( None this weekend at T8, even tho I had plenty of same-tier battles in the KV-4.

Unticked GB, was nothing more than "big randoms" to me and it takes ages to get your tank back if you exit early

 

Frontline is a totally different and far more interesting game

Not sure, but I was under impression that t8 gb was meant to be only for a limited time.

It's was nice though, hope it will be back in any case.

I'd call it the classic tragedy of the commons.

 

While an individual game may be a bit longer and the individual impact lower, it did thin out the tiers making matchmaking better for everyone who had to play against them. And since this solution to overflows of people playing tiers eight and ten are deactivated, everyone gets to coplain about matchmaking again. Now those who still got it activated (or want to to complete their missions in a more target-rich environment) cannot - and since many here describe they want to join GBs exactly for that reason and deactivate it later we probably won't see it any more often than we do at the moment - very rarely.

 

Then again, people can once again start MM-topics and complain about always being bottom tier....

Just like all of the other posts I have not seen one for several weeks, and I have Assault & Encounter unchecked thus Standard Battles galore...........yaaaaay! :facepalm:

 

One of the selling points of GB is having more variety of maps to play on and different strategies/ techniques each game, unlike Frontline where it's one map with players applying a small number of strategies to achieve a win.
