At first I did get in some Grand Battles but the amount has been decreasing as we go along. The last 2 evenings (Friday & Saturday) I have platooned with two friends during prime time for several hours without getting a single GB. I don't know if it is from lack of players on the NA server, lack of interest in the 30v30 battles from the players themselves, or the 10% chance of getting placed in a GB. The sad part is that we have a great new map and we have extremely limited access to it. My concern is that people will completely quit trying to get into a Grand Battle and we will lose this great new battle mode before it really even got started. 

 

You will not get Grand Battle Platooned as far as I can tell after more than 100 T10 platoon battles. Good Luck.

It already is or have you not heard of the constant all tier 10 battles instead of Grand Battles that would have taken an extra 5 seconds to make.

 

actually they removed battle tier 12 because people complained about only fighting tier 10's with tier 10's now tier 8's get bottom tier in a tier 10 battle so your point is invalid try again

Tier 12 is all tier 10 battle, yes? Do we have all tier 10 battles? Of course we do or else grand battles would be working, your point is invalid.

How about making it so we can actually pick the game mode we want. It would be nice to be able to just pick Grand battle. I don't want standard battles or any of the other crap. LET US PICK THE BATTLE TYPE. Please quite forcing us to play standard at tier 10. We understand we might have to sit in Que for a few seconds longer. Its worth it. Make it so we can select or in select every game mode please.

 

Thanks 

 

Agreed. And this would actually give us an opportunity to learn a very large map, which is difficult when you see it once a week. (Yes, there is a video on it, but boy, there's a lot to learn here...)

Another clan member and I have about 400 tier 10 battles since the launch of grand battles and have not seen one.  Been in different fully tier 10 games at the same time and still nothing.  I'm thinking wargaming  picks wh I can even see them.  (Unicum or famous you tubers)

Since patch I have seen one GB.  Make it a mode that you pick.  You will get more players and T10's will move out of normal RNG into the selected GB mode.  They are useless to me at this point I drain the bank account trying to get one and it's just not worth it.  Back to playing T8 and occasionally T10 unless this changes.

 

I would rather wait for a GB than to constantly be put into RNG battles that at times have all T10.  But so what.  I want to play the GB mode.  Give it to us as a selectable mode and you will get more than enough playing them.

 

Meanwhile pretty useless.

I have to agree, other than the playing tier 8 anything, I sold all my tier 8s that weren't premium.   Got tiered of the 10s being in there too much.

 

I have not been in 1 GB since the start of the Ranked battles.

 

Players are complaining about tier 8 getting 10s all the time, so why not take some of the pressure off that tier by increasing the probability of getting more GB.

 

Holding , stubbornly, I might add, to this 3/5/7 match maker model is hurting the different battle modes, and the players who just want to play tier tier 8s.

 

I don't want to change the 3/5/7 MM, just thinking if you prioritize the GB and Ranked mode for tier 10, then the tier 8 tanks would get the pressure removed. 

  

Last night at prime time, the Ranked battles were really low on population, so I jumped out into Random battles and got three straight tier 12 battles in a row. 

All tier 10s anyway, correct me if it's tier 11, or 12, I can't remember.

 

Point is, that players are not happy in tier 8, they are not happy with the GB mode, and now I'm seeing low population in Ranked Battles, at least two nights in a row anyway.

 

People are going to loose interest QUICKLY, and adapt to whatever works for them, and when, and if WG decides to fix the problem, it may be too late to matter.

I got 5 grands the first week or so none since, you have ranked,CW and grands all T-10 only? How is that supposed to work? Not enough 10s in the game to support that.

WG: "Hello tankers, we have a new and exciting 30v30 game mode called Grand Battles!  (good luck ever getting in one)" 

 

Me: "I would love to provide feedback! (if I'd ever get in one)"

I still have had zero grands after the first week? Is anyone getting any? I played a bunch of 10 only battles yesterday, with no luck.
