So, I've noticed the last few days that there are fewer and fewer tier 10/Grand Battles. 

 

This is 'wonderful' news.  So basically as people finish grinding bonds they quit playing tier 10 tanks, which means fewer battles where you can get bonds.  This of course means more and more and more times spent trying to grind bonds. 

 

I think I'll probably want to quit playing for a month by the time this double month tank grind is done.  I certainly will be sick of tier 10.

Tier 10 has been extremely difficult to get into battle with recently, especially if you keep Grand Battles disabled. I'm getting kicked out of the queue more often than ever before, and queue times are consistently above 2 minutes even when I do reach a match if I'm not playing at prime time.

now how could that match up with everyone saying that when they play tier 8 it's ALWAYS tier 10.

Tier 8 does. The problem is that MM tries for Tier 10 only battles, and Grand Battles. Getting into a 3/5/7 match is simple, but that's because only 6 top Tier tanks are needed, and MM tries to avoid making tanks top Tier very often.

Been playing tier 10's all night. Well over 50% tier 10 only and grand battles. Just cleared 4400 bonds, with an average of 70-100 bonds/day earned. I don't see how earning bonds is so difficult for the allegedly good players, being mediocre myself.

Found the same thing with gb off...made ticket to support but more people need to tell them this.It wastes a lot of my personal reserve time.

It's only going to get worse as people get sick of grinding tier 10 tanks.  Weekend mornings can lead to hours of playing without even a single all tier 10 battle, let alone a grand battle.  Thanks again WG.
