"The soft, chilling breeze of the Klondike winds blows past you as you look up to the stunning, captivating mountain view that has been bestowed upon you by God himself..."

I really love this map's view, it's almost hard to find words. I felt like since there isn't a soundtrack video of it up yet, I may as well do one for the soundtrack intro and show off the beautiful mountains with the soundtrack along with it in my own way before WarGaming does in their own special way. :)

(Video was created by me, just saying in case anyone tries to call me out for 'wrongly' taking credit.)

Don't care how it looks, grand battles are crap and this map is poorly designed.

Because the last six month I have not seen a GB...Smile_sceptic.gif

They need to open it up to tier 8 and 9.

Actual mountains are beautiful. Try the Fourteeners in Colorado. Video game beauty is shallow, and mildly interesting.

LOL, and then you could be bottom tier in a Grand Battle....   Lovely.

I haven't seen it since i rarely play Tier X...actually i hardly play the game at all anymore given the frustration of 3/5/7 MM. Tier X is pretty much overated, in many ways TierVIII seems the one that matters to players and WG's profits.  The vid looks good though.  

 

WG needs to open up the Grand Battle concept to more Tiers, in fact just merge that and Frontline together and ditch the current Random format.  The game needs a PvE environment, at least for newer players and needs a serious look at the internal economy.  Stop with the new tanks, expand maps in size and in number.

But at least you'd have room to avoid direct confrontation with inherently superior tanks and flank for advantage, even wolf-pack them...just like in the real world.

Got my first Grand Battle yesterday. First look at Klondike. In my Tier 10 T92 HMC.  30 enemy tanks. Oh, my.  A cannon cocker’s wet dream - a target-rich environment.

 

A shout out to the enemy Type 5 Super Heavy. I fired at him eight times, one direct hit and one splash/stun. He dodged the other six like a Boss AMX ELC! Or Pz 1C!

Yes, WG, introduce new maps more often...

 

HD does not count...

Fire-this, or snow-that, does not count...

Then they could call it "Less than Grand Battles"?

 

Would be fun to have some GBs at different tiers though, at least to see the comparison.  24 vs 24 at tier 6?  That sounds like a recipe for some gun and run goodness!

I have no problems with the landscape in maps, it is damned nice on some maps. I'd love to spend more time sight seeing but some yahoo with a 122mm is always shooting at me so I am a bit busy to stop for a picnic or photo op.
