I am not a regular in this game anymore, i play sometime then i stop for a month and  so on.... last time i checked into the game there were this beautiful grand battles for tier 10 and tier 8 tanks and now they are gone ?? Seriusly i loved those big maps; finally something new in this game and first you restrict it to only tier 10, then allow it for tier 8 (why not tier 9 too ?????????) and now i see it is gone completely. Jesus, what is going on ?? This game had more clarity from developers back in 2011 when i was in closed beta.

 

So, where did grand battles go and why tier 9 tanks were not allowed in on the fun ?

No they are still there. Just hard to find. Even if you play tier X and 8 all day. Why? Well, it's a 30 vs 30. And it's hidden in randoms. The more that have it off, the harder it is to find enough with it on within your tier range at that exact time. And it's just faster to make 15 vs 15 games to move the line along. As you can't prioritze GB over standard etc via settings if you so wish. I've seen 2 GB the past 6 months I'm sure.

Yep, I would like to play GB a lot more, too, but as we see... one day couple weeks ago I did play all my X-tiers through at style 1 battle per 1 tier-X tank => 51 battles and got 0 Grand Battles during one day. To WG I would say: Not like this WG, not like this.

I think I've only played 4? since they were available to me at tier 8, would like to have more.

Didnt they turn T8 GB off since it was only a test for a week or two? Played 1 game in my WZ-5A after getting it due to TotT this month and straight away a GB.

I think WG has reduced the probability to have a GB.

pretty sure this is what happened, it was a second test of tier 8.

Havent had GB for a month, Best guess WG has it disabled as the servers cant handle this new waste of time mode or GB at the same time.

 

Same with CWs,   I think they disable it to stop the accumulation of Bonds.

Considering to enable it for some missions like TD.15-3 (6k damage + 5 kills - need the honors for the order to skip farty missions), should be easier in GB mode because of more available HP/targets. But only makes sense if I can get in such GBs fairly regularly…

the format of the GBs, both tier 8 and tier X is absolutely interesting if well balanced in the types of tanks.

 

The problem lies in the very bad maps that the wg gave birth to for this mode, I have currently disabled them, probably it would not change much from having it enabled as it is rare to be in this type of games.


It would be interesting to make it a real game mode with its own specific missions to lighten the MM in random battles.

Like many people, I've seen GB mostly disappear which is unfortunate, I like the bigger map/format.

You may want to pause your mission progress until 1.6 releases, as this was recently posted in announcements:

Thanks, but I only just recently unlocked Excalibur, so am still faaaar away from Obj279e missions, and I don't play fartys (which is the reason why I need the honors to the TD.15-3 and HT.15-3). So the changes planned for 1.6 don't seem to affect me :(

I am not sure what I shall think of that speed-up paragraph, but as I need all orders for the SPG.15 mission, I don't think it applies to me anyway...

I think they got reduced when someone said GB stands for gang-bang.

Well you know, GB is leaving the EU, maybe related to that? :teethhappy:

I can't find Grand Battles too. Maybe we should join Grand Battles not only via random battles but also seperate mod.
