Is the GB mode active or not?

 

This mod (link below) has posted it's not currently active, and yet players are trying to get into the mode, because WG seems to be saying it's active.

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.

Thanks for the update.

And I hate to say 'are you sure?", but "are you sure?"

I easily had 10 or more all T10 battles while trying to get into one.

So the number of T10's in queue doesn't seem to be an issue, unless the matchmaker is trying to fill 15v15 T10 matches first, and GB if anyone is left over.

its a battle mode that is not going to work because the limit to tier 10 is going to be its down fall. the limitation of a single tier for it is the only failure and no haven't played no tier 10's so you have limited your players.

should have used tier 8's so more could play.

One of the points for Grand Battles was to be an "endgame" mode... And tier 8 is NOT endgame material.

Ahh but think of the credits a tier 8 premium could earn in a game.

I got into one Grand Battle tonight but frequently got 15 vs 15 with all tier 10s.  I wish match maker would just wait a little longer to gather enough tier 10s.

1400m by 1400m and 60 players still really stupid but you all did it anyways   Go figure

What happened to the first idea 9 times bigger?

server to out of date to handle that?

oh I know well over 60% of your player base pc's can handle this game

nerfs to type 4,5 armor where sad ( like normal )

I played all day as soon as the servers were up, in hope that I could hop in on one of those 30 vs. 30 games to accomplish SPG-15/3. Not once, not EVEN ONCE, did I get a 30v30 game. You need to change the mechanics of this for NA servers, there's not enough population to keep a steady chance of 30v30s happening like in the EU servers. I say make it a 1/10 or 2/10 chance, instead of a population-dependant variable. I was so hyped for this...

You're NEVER going to get more people interested in playing Grand Battles than on the first night of the release. Especially given that there is no CW. So if it's a flop on the first night, it has ZERO chance of long term viability.

Got into 2 of them tonight (with arty), accomplished Arty 12-4 and 13-4, nice.

 

About a dozen of us made multiple platoons and synced in from about 9 - 11 pm EDT.

Quite refreshing... and my Obj 261 was on my last round when it was over.

Would like them to tweak the percentage up so we can do this more often.

My friend and I were trying to click into a battle, we ended up in two different standard all tier 10 battles.

Why did the match maker choose to take 60 tier 10 tanks, and split them into teams of 15 to make two different matches?

Makes no sense to me.

Primary feedback would be that for NA server, we likely need to include 9s and maybe even 8s in the mix for this mode, not just Xs.

 

That's not the intention of the mode, but for it to work here, that may be one of the few ways to effectively have battles on this server on a regular basis, without players flooding through drops.

This is an astute observation. Does not bode well for this mode unless changes are made.

Hours later...still no Grand Battles for me.  Useless game mode is useless.

Sorry gave up after several hours and not getting in

Why bother when your concept and launch SUCK!

If its only tier 10 then make it a separate selectable game mode

Telling players there isn't enough in Que is a lot of bull feces.

The 15 vs 15 random launches almost immediately after you hit the battle button

I fully expected it to be a mode to itself and to play it a lot.  Instead, never got one.  Disappointing.

they need to make it to were you can just choose grand battle instead of standard battle considering they are pretty much the same thing one just has more people and a bigger map
