This should be minimum map size for any tier 8 and above match. 

 

Keep Grand Battles, get rid of Ensk, Himmseldorf, Mines, and other tiny garbage maps at higher tiers.

You know, the ones where large, slow tanks are spotted 50m from spawn 10 seconds into the match.

 

Very true if the GB maps were standard size for higher tier game then we wouldn't have the problem of arty taking away a ton of our hit points before we get to our spots cause we got spotted in the first 10 seconds and they are able to reload, aim and fire on us before we are able to get to cover. I love the GB for tier 8 would love to see it in tier 6 too and also would like to see it more often gets rid of the need for "skill rounds" that just make armor rating useless, also it's way better than the +2 -2 MM where top tier spam more "skill rounds" at low tier and take all the HP away. Wish you would keep GB permanently and also BRING BACK FRONT LINE tired of not getting the choice of not fighting tier 10's in my tier 8 where I'm just a bullet sponge until i die.

I have to think that they added this mode because they've screwed Tier 8 matchmaking so badly. If that's the case, they should keep it until they fix the mm issues with tier 8 and platoons.

 

For those who hate this mode, you can disable it in settings.

I'm loving the tier 8 grand battles, put them in permanently!  Also love the fact you can turn them off.

My friends and I really love this mode,at least all my Tier 8 vehicle won't be the bottom in T10 room and suffered. Also it is a good place for our premium vehicle to train the crew. PLZ bring this mode in the game. It's so cool !!!

It would be nice to be able to play grand battles only if one wanted to, I see some comments that some hate the mode, just uncheck the box in settings, for the rest of us it is a fun match.

needs to be kept

bring back Front Line

+1 to Moridin_707 suggestion to keep the tiny maps to the tiny tiers. Really frustrating to spawn and immediately get one shotted by tanks you can neither see or pen

When I get into a GB I usually enjoy it; I was even 2nd by XP on my team once.  However, I don't get into a GB very often.

Here is a suggestion to keep things fresh.

 

A month has 4 weeks.

  • Week 1. Front Line
  • Week 2. Add a third Tier of Skirmishes of Tier VII that has a number of players between what is required for Tier 6 or 8 skirmishes. The players will only be allowed to run premium tanks(everything except the E-25[more on those later]) but will get the 1.5X of boxes. Yes, socialist children friends, this is an evul capitalist move to financially help WoT financially. That way they can pay developers to make more maps that everyone wants. << also a clue to WoT
  • Week 3. Grand Battles
  • Week 4. Regular stuffs. Give people a break so that the other weeks remain 'Fresh' except a rotating specialty skirmishes with 1.5X boxes for participating clans. Have one night that later week have a specialty skirmish(Hint: sales preceding event for the lucre). Suggested are:
     *   'RoachFest' skirmishes of only E-25's
     *   'BRUISER' skirmishes of only KV-5's
     *   'MONSTER' skirmishes of only Lowe's or Mauerbrecher's.
     *   'PeckerHead' skirmishes of Pz. B2's or Pz. S35's.
     *   'du jour' skirmishes of German premium mediums <<< there are a number of those that can be used
     *   'use your imagination' skirmishes of *******
     

 

Just my 2 cents.

BRING BACK FRONTLINE AND MAKE IT PERMANENT.

IT WAS THE BEST MODE YOU EVER HAD, AND YOU TOOK IT DOWN.

GRAND BATTLE DOESN'T COMPARE TO FRONTLINE PERIOD!!!!!!!!

I despise these grand battles. When I get one ii just aim for the middle hit the cruise control , and go outside for a smoke. I am done with WOT until these POS missions end.If you want these in the game make them separate like they used to be

Err, you do know that you can turn them off in your game settings, right?

Frankly, Grand Battle is probably the best mode currently available for any tier. I vote Wargaming keep it going and add it as an available mode for tier IX as well. As mentioned several times, it would be nice to see Frontline back as well.

Bigger, more open maps make for a better game. It's nice to be able to wheel mid-map and tackle the opfor's breakthrough instead of having to retrace my path only to deal with it head on.

One thought: add a GB mode for all tiers VI and up. Those who don't like it can turn it off.  Also, add a Settings option that removes (or adds) small maps (Himmelsdorf, Mines, etc.) to their rotation. If nothing else WG will learn a little about the preferences of their players.

Agree.  What's the point if:

            NO Bonds ??

            You will prolly end up STILL fighting Tier X's ( cause chance of getting one are small as player #'s dwindle as the night comes on.  IN A TANK YOU WOULD NOT NORMALLY PLAY cause Tier X fodder,

So, this is all a test, at our expense. 

If I get in one, great.

I do not like being a test subject for their profit.

.

Jus sayin.

Then it's gonna be Tier VIII, AND  IX AND X battles, 3/5/7 on a bigger map.  Nothing will change.

Love it If I had a choice this would be the only thing id play in my ter 8s.  Unfortunately you have to play 9 out of 10 bottom ter random battles on crap teams before getting a grand.

I agree this is nothing compared to Frontline.  Frontline was great, it worked, and you took it away a long time ago and no mention of it since.  If I am getting into a GB I want to know, not have it pop up at random, so I turned it off.   If it was a mode I could select and be prepared for (like Frontline) then I might try it more.  But yeah, this sucks compared to frontline, in fact it can't even be compared.  This is just tanks driving around on a map again, no objectives like frontline, no rewards etc.  And no I won't buy a tier 8 tank unless I would use it for frontline, cause when this test mode is over I am back to fighting Tier X 90% of the time again, like it is now.  So no thanks on any tier 8 offers at this point.

Grand Battle was a great change of pace.  A new twist to get used to, hopefully I have time to get used to it.

I thought it was awesome,

and i thought the same of Frontline,

also the 1-man-platoon bug that gave you matches in your own tier.

 

Make same tier MM as an option, and i will continue to have a premium account,

I do NOT pay for +1 MM or +2 MM, not paying WG is the only language WG understands.
