So, I was excited about grand battles for tier 8 early summer, but WG disabled it within days... maybe they will thinking over it and starting again after this frontline season?

My guess is because of FL.

 

But on a different note. Why do people bother with grand battles anyway? 30v30 on terrible maps, with 5 arty, VS all the same tier, where you cant get MoE Up. Just sounds insanely boring and un fun to me. Disabled it when it first came out before playing it, Only time i have is when platoon commander doesnt have it disabled

But missions work, and I suspect that's the main reason why most wanted it. And on tier 8, it's easier vs 30 targets vs 15 to get some of them done. While others that demand top 1 or top 3 spots were harder. But as GB was hidden in randoms. It died out even faster I suspect.

Hopefully. I don't mind grand battles for a change. Perhaps enable them from tier 6+ would be cool.

Tier 8 Grand Battles weren't that bad actually.

 

Think about it: No tier 10 TDs or arties in the back and view range actually matters.

Haven't had a T8 GB for a long time but had 5 tonight for T10, all in arty as well.

I like Grands and the Tier 8 Version was Good too....      I'd like to think they'll bring it Back one day, Event or as a Regular Mode, I'f be Good with either....       But, I'd rather it was a Regular Deal....

 

My only Fear, is that they'd Bugger it Up like they did with Frontline this year and not just keep it Simple....      Time will Tell, it always does....

They've been running all the time, but you don't get any … just like tier X grand battles.

I suspect the issue is that since it's hidden in randoms. And that you need 60 or more in wait at the same time on tier X with it on before MM tosses you into a standard battle. They will remain a rare sight with so many having it off.

 

That said. I would be interested to see stats. As in how many GB a day there actually are on average vs when it first came. As I've seen 2 the past 4 months alone on tier X.

Need tier X GB for certain missions but I've given up expecting them.

the bad quality of the GBs maps is out of the question , I must say that for the tiers X the maps are too small and poorly made, but for tiers 8 I have to say that they are absolutely more playable.
