I suggest either increasing the chance of grand battles and the map for it (I say 20% chance instead of the .01% chance it seems to be having in the NA server.) or put them in another playlist and maybe into ranked when the next season opens with the numbers being fixed so it is the same ratio that normal ranked battles have.

A another good idea, revamp the 3/5/7 matchmaking with a 5/5/5 do the max top tier can be is 5 and mid tier is 6 if top tier is 3 or under, besides that is would be 5 or under. It will make tier 10s have a better chance getting into grand battle and tier 8 wouldn't be getting tier ten matches so god damn much.

Funny how they ask for feedback and then run away.

Once again WG has managed to screw something new up and not fix their MM. The total lack of excellence continues. The MM continues to have lopsided battles by the amount of hit points on each side. I have been  in many games of tier ten matches where the other team has the equivalent of 3 more tanks in their amount of hit points.

How is this feedback on Grand Battles?

I seems like everything WG has done in the last several months has been stupid and counterproductive.  I wonder if they have lost the more competent members of their staff and are trying to get by with a bunch of gumballs for Devs and/or managers?  There would be no excuse for that considering how much money they take in.

 

I was really hoping to see the 30x30 mode take off and succeed, sounds like good fun, but as usual (lately) they have FUBAR'd it.    The idea to draw some T10's away from ramdoms so maybe T8's could occaisionally see something besides T10 battles is just a head in the sand attempt to remedy the problems created by 3,5,7.   The real fix for that is +1 OR -1 MM'ing.  But they would have to face to the facts of their previous bad decision and they don't seem to be organizationally capable of doing that.  And really, how many T10s did they expect to draw away from randoms if T!0s can't actually get into GBs? Duuuuuuhhhhhh.

 

Their various recent  attempts to keep arty in the game without running off tank players have failed miserably.  I suspect this is the biggest factor in the declining NA player base and is keeping WoT from being recognized as a legitimate eSport (which would go a long way toward making the game more popular in NA)..  That one has a pretty easy fix as well, limit arty to ONE per random battle so that the outcome of the battle is driven by the TANK drivers.   Or just get rid of the whole class.  But, once again they would have to recognize when they have made a mistake and that doesn't seem to happen.

 

I really like this game and I hope they pull their head out and rethink some of their ill considered unproductive strategies.

can we just get it as a drop down like you did with ranked battles

. that way those who want to play can get in even if it takes a little bit longer to fill up the teams.

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.

It doesn't make me play my X's any more often. 

 

Open it up to VIIIs and I'll keep it open, same as assault & encounter.

I play X more often now because of slowly grinding out my 5,000 bonds for a piece of equipment.

 

I enjoy the Grande Battle because at this stage any new map is a refreshing change; however, Grande Battles are not frequent enough to make me go out of my way to play tier X.

Never seen it, I keep playing my 110E5, but nothing since release.

I did get a chance to play GB's is when this battle mode was still in Sandbox testing. Frontline was also a fun mode although it took 30 min to complete a battle

Over 190 Tier X battles and not one grand battle. Burned through 3 million credits playing the 10's though. I agree with Mago_Carthago. Piss poor implementation. Why bother all the time, research, development etc for this when you don't actually use it. Change it so tier 7 and up can play it. Maybe just make all grand battles same tier. Much better chance that we can actually play the mode. Come on WG.... Get it fixed.

The 3/5/7 template is screwing over the tier VIII players, so WG had the bright idea of creating a new battle mode to suck a very very few tier X tanks out of the normal MM, thereby giving tier VIIIs a tiny improvement in their MM. The game mode is so rarely triggered that its benefit to players is negligible.

 

We players would have been SO MUCH better off if WG had made Grand Battles for Tier VIII vehicles ONLY. That would be working fantastically well. But WG's staff don't have the brains to do something that obvious.

But.... but everyone loves tier 10 so that is the only tier that matters, all other tiers are filler.

they need to bring back battle tier12 again that would guarantee tier 10's seeing tier 10 battles which would increase the chances of going into a grand battle 

also that would make tier8's not feel like cannon fodder in a tier 10 battle over and over every time

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.

I Grand battle after more than 100 T10 battles, then another 150+ go by and still no SECOND grand battle.  Someone said its Circonflexes fault for advising players to "UnCheck" the box. Whatever it is it's another FAIL on the part of WG here on the NA server.
