I said it on the SB forums, I've said it on the 9.20 test forums, and now I'm saying it here.

GRAND BATTLES NEED TO BE OPEN TO TEIRS 8 AND 9 TO WORK ON NA AT ALL

The server merge was supposedly to make the already low population NA server(s) more capable of accessing this mode.
That is a [edited]joke, our server pop is low as it is, at peak hours we're lucky to be 1/4th the size of the other servers meaning we don't have a snowball's chance in hell to meet the active t10 players queuing at once requirements to trigger this algorithm in the match maker. if I honestly could have my account switched to EU i would, because at least then i would have some semblance of a chance to play a 30v30 battle.

Maybe for once the NA offices will listen to the feedback and pass it on to the dev offices to fix it (haha funny right?)

Edit: My bad, its not all on the NA offices, its also on the Dev offices to listen at all to the feedback at all (AH HAHA even funnier)

We'll just have to sit around and hope WG loosens the algorithm or lowers the odds of a t10 getting into a standard battle to increase the odds of enough t10s being in queue at once to trigger it.

How can there be feedback when it doesn't even exist in practice?

 

Maybe it needs bot fillers WoWP-style if it's to work even remotely consistently...and queue people cry...

Hey guys,

Sorry to hear that many of you haven't gotten into the 30 v 30 but it does appear to be working and they are happening.  The issue appears to be a lack of the Tier X's required to be concurrently in queue to trigger a Grand Battle instance at a decent frequency.  We are heading into peak times now so the next few hours will probably be your best shot, we will be passing feedback related to the lack of frequency as part of our early reports on the patch.

 

GB has actually created a bigger problem.....or at least exasperated a problem that already existed.

 

When the new MM came out, it cause tier 8s to be saddled with a lot of battles where they were low tier.  However, you could still get into battles where there were only tier 8 tanks and a few 5-10 format with tier 9s.

 

Now, with everybody trying (and failing) to get into GB, almost all tier 8s are getting are tier 10 battles.  This really discourages players from playing tier 8 tanks.....a tier that I would suspect that WG makes a lot of their money selling premium tanks.  Lack of people playing tier 8, makes the chances of being pulled into a tier 10 battle even higher for those that are playing tier 8 tanks.  Just saying.

Here's a related question: Since the patch a lot of people have been playing tier 10s and getting all-tier-X matches.  What effect has this had on MM for T8 and T9 tanks?  Are you seeing fewer matches against Tier 10s, more, or about the same?

All I want to know is how has no one from WG responded to this yet it's clearly not working right, and all we get is an apology not really a response, how about you take some of these great suggestions and actually try to fix the problem and maybe tell us what you are doing about it.  Apologies are for people who intentionally did something wrong.   Give us a real response.

Waste of time...    I played 50 game or so last night...  All but like 5 being tier 10.. I TANKED my stats trying to get in this game mode.. 

I mean YOLOing just to get in another tier 10 to see if I get it.. In 50 fooking matches and you can't play it once.. But as other's has stated you can get 40 matches of 15vs15 tier 10.. 

wthis the problem.. People are going to get tired of trying.. Why not have it to where you can choose just to play it.. .It will help MM and all of your other fooking problems you guys tend to create with this game.. 

I mean its simple.. Or do you guys really enjoy tanking this game.. I mean does it get your guys rocks off in the office to watch your fan base disappear cause you can't figure out how to run a game?

 

NO ONE IS GETTING YOUR DANG BATTLES YOU PROMISED.. YOUR FEEDBACK FIX YOUR DAN GAME>

 

P.s.  I got soooo pissed you guys lied to us last night.. I actually uninstalled the flipping game.. And I was going to download it to spend money today, and all you read is how F'd in the A this game is cause of just ignorant ppl running it.. That don't know how to fix it..    FIX YOUR GAME.. Quit telling ppl there is new maps new game modes.. Blah blah blah but NEVER letting people get to play them..

P.S..   

WG is the ONLY COMPANY i know that BLAMES its supporters for THEIR PROBLEMS...   

OH ITS NOT OUR FAULT YOU CAN"T PLAY THE GAME MODE ITS WORKING>.   ITS NOT ENOUGH PPL..   

Cause we are so good at making this game work and adding features that we can actually keep a player base...  EERRRRRRRRRRTT.

You make everyone hate your game like yoru doing now then blame us for your problems.. 

 

 I make you this bet.. Make it to where everyone can play this game mode tonight, and you see good reviews are more playing...  You tank it tonight more negative reviews and hate..

But who cares right your just going to blame the players anyway...

If you know your player base is small.. 

  Then why don't you compensate for it..  You keeping up now...    With your small base... That itty bitty thing of yours.. 

  You either need to increase the changes from 10% to like 20%   Or hold MM back on putting in tier 10's so fast.. Let it build more tanks up in que at tier 10 only, or can you guy's do that?  Is that hard?  

If MM is quick to drop in the first 30 tanks just to get a battle as you claim then yes with a smaller player base it will be harder to get two teams of 30 because your MM is working overtime to drop as many battles as possible...  So that is the problem we are getting 4 battles battles of 15vs15 instead of 2 battles of 30vs30...   

I mean there is hundreds of battles logged and VERY FEW has got to play your dang game mode.. It was fun on test it was different.. Then your like OK ITS TIME GUYS GO HAVE FUN..   And no one gets to have fun all the see is fail fail fail fail fail fail fail... 

Then you come out well its because there isn't enough of U's out there.. Well thats cause you guys are doing a better job at running people off than keeping us.. Hmmmm... 

I mean its really not rocket science 

 

And if they game mode was designed so very few ppl would get to play it..... Then why the heck even add it?  I mean why spend time money and resources on something you never intended for ppl to really play in the first place..   I mean I would say that is a good way to bankrupt a company.. Wasting resources on something you had no intentions on using in the first place..

What feedback? What grand battle? Where?

The so-called grand battle is nothing more then a scam,  glorified slot machine luring players to play tier 10 more often thus making us loose more credits and indirectly forcing us to buy premium account.

if you have to buy prem time to make credits, you're doing something wrong

Good News Everybody!

We increased the probability of Grand Battles occurring with a micro patch this morning. Your best chance to find a Grand Battle should be in a few hours during this Friday evening. Please let us know in this thread if you are still unable to get Grand Battles after your tanking session today.

Uhh I don't know, could be my five plus years of perspective...?

 

Possibly the recent server merge might be a clue?

 

Perhaps the head of WG stating that the Americans are not playing?

"The least active players are Americans"

 

If we had the player numbers from three years ago, this new mode would be on fire right now.

But as it stands, WG is just thinning out the player base even more.

 

I have 'only' played the game for 2 1/2 years and I have honestly not seen much of a change in the number of people playing ... there may be less clan stuff and less of the 'old' players out there ..... none of which has a negative impact on my experience playing the game.

 

As for GB ..... I'll let u know if I ever get into one

No I didn't, I was referring specifically to grand battle slot machine MM. It's worded correctly. You just failed to get the point across. AGAIN.

Just a thought,

You should be able to select the mode, go into Que, once the amount is enough for a battle (or two or three or whatever), any odd number left over then MM pulls from random battles to fill in and make up the numbers.  Or on each battle take say 20 that chose that mode and the rest from random to fill teams quicker.   Seems something like that would let people play it that want to, and at least the people that did not choose to do that every time would be on a normal rotation %.

Or maybe rather than an ON or OFF box, make it so you can choose the % of being picked for that mode, ie 25 35 50 70.
