I have done dozens of tier X battles, and never seen a grand battle. I do have the box checked in settings, I do run tier X's. What am I doing wrong, or what should I be doing that I am not?

I've had 4 or 5 of the battles since they started. They did say that there is only a 10% chance that you will get one.

I can confirm they exist, but they're rare (for me at least).   There's a 10 percent chance to start with, couple that with NAs low population and the chances are low.  Especially if it's not peak times for server population like in the evenings. 

 

Also I wonder how many folks that are running tens have them unchecked so they can get into a regular battle with 8s and 9s.  Or don't like the mode or just gave up on it.

 

Stick with it OP and good luck.

They Might As Well Not Exist.

I got in 3 so far, but it has the same issues as 15v15, one team will dominate the other by a huge margin.

30v30 would probably be more fun if tier 8 and 9 could play it, or just add that map to the normal 60% rotation... 10% in tier 10 rotation will not pop it very often.

I have heard that many people run out of ammo in those battles if they don't die quickly. Yeah, I only know 1 person in my clan that has gotten into them, so it feels like 10% is an optimistic guess.

I used to get one every day during prime time but that has stopped about 5 days ago.

I've played it 3 times since the patch.  10% is a rainbow unicorn fart number.  More like 0.01%

Never seen one, only about 50 battles for me though.  They should stick that nice new map in the 15v15 rotation. Grand Battles is another Grand Failure- just like the 3x3 map- a month of hype and then gone. Never speak of it again.

When do you play in a day? Try the prime time when a lot of t10 players are online. I play around 10PM (EST) and see a lot of ppl queued for the grand battle. Also, weekend is better. I believe all my GBs were during the weekend primetime.

for one, grand battles can be a 15 vs 15 if I recall correctly.  grand battle just means all tier 10s, and bonds earned in battle if I'm not mistaken.

 

as for nebelburgh, I haven't seen a single battle, even on test where it was a blow-out, nor do I recall ever having seen any of the streamers I've been watching have battles won by much more than 4 or 5 tanks on that map in 30 v 30 mode.

 

due to the sheer size of the map, the large view ranges, the wide open kill zones for camped up TDs, and the huge hp pools they tend to be drawn out battles.  most lopsided battles are over very quickly.

I've had about 20 and that was during Labor Day Weekend. I haven't been on since then but it seems you'll have more luck finding them on weekend nights.

It'll average out.

I have had a lot of Tier X battles 6 out of the last 7 days at prime time and only got 1 GB. When they first started the 30v30 I had several of them, but as time goes by I am seeing less and less of them. It is a shame that we have a new map we can't even play on. Maybe Wargaming will get this fixed before to long.

I highly doubt that.

 

Statistically speaking, it's already at a .003% chance. One third of one percent. And this is a pretty damn good sample size for a single person.

Hmm.  I might need to recalibrate my sarcasm generator.  I'll try again later.
