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.

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

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...)
