Okay, I know not everyone likes them, but DANG, I haven't seen one in over two months. I HATE playing Tier X games on MINES, ENSK and such.   Tier X tanks need bigger maps....

You would think they would allow the end user to be able to select this as a separate mode outside of random battles.  We all know how good the house dice are ;)

 People complained that they were too common and they reduced the rate. They also removed the 2 GB maps to do the updates and gave us the original Sand box version.

Klondike is returning this week in 1.02. 

 

We don't see them because a lot of people turned them off. One way WG can resolve this is to give incentives. Maybe grand battle specific missions which might compel people to turn them back on. OR... wg should just make them a mandatory part of the rotation. I'm for the latter

Umm... we can.  Settings > General > Grand Battle (toggle)

I think the main issue is that many have realized that Grand Battles are awful. I got tired of the camping TDs, and endless HEAT rounds. I only want Grand Battles to survive, so I can keep exploiting the matchmaker. While all those tier X fools are killing each other, I'm going to go farm those helpless tier VIII's in the 3/5/7 system.
