The ELC Even 90 is not "reliable", it's garbage. I think it might even fit into a garbage pail.

ELC is a good money maker for me when you can actually scout in it, it is a troll at times but overall i've had some huge payouts from games.

This is sad. You get players' hopes up that grand battles will finally provide a format that makes tier 8 worth playing. You take the opportunity to push more tier 8 premium tanks on the player base who think that they will actually use them in a grand battle. WGA is pathetic. What are the odds of getting a tier 8 grand battle? The same as tier 10? 1 in 20?

I don't know what the odds are but...tonite, i got into T8 Grand Battles i think 3x out of 6 or 7.  I'll take it. 

 

Frankly, whether i use the Premium T8's or not, i think overall hands down the entire Tier VIII class is FAR more interesting than the Tier X's...and the variety is better to. Any crews i had in T10's aver moving down to VIII's or lower.  If i never played a TierX again its fine by me.

Like it or not, WoT is a business and they have to make money to keep the servers running. Those promotions are their advertising and is a source of revenue for them.
I enjoyed the multiple Grand Battles I had tonight and want them to remain as a constant feature. 

Add more maps and throw in monthly Tier VII Skirmishes with only premium tanks with 2X boxes; I'd be a happy camper. 


I swear, some of you would complain about being hung with a new rope.

LT 432 and EVEN 90 were both fun in T-VIII Grands

My 'toonmate had good times in his Lorraine too.

why i don't like grand battles:

1. with 30 tanks per side,  you are half as likely to influence battle outcome.  therefore, the bonus for winning/penalty for losing doesn't seem warranted.  suggest increasing benefits to losing side (mercenary thing or something)

2. missions like the current bond missions requiring you to be in top 10 are harder to achieve.  missions should be adjusted accordingly.

This is just gross. Didnt even bother to hide the fact that you're just [edited]greedy bastards trying to make money. Maybe actually show some genuine consideration for your players by telling them what is actually good at tier 8.

Grand Battles needs to be a selectable game mode for both tier 8 and 10.  They are so different from Random battles that people want and NEED to be able to select their tank.

So I saw the notification: Recommendations for Tier VIII Grand Battles. 

I thought: "Yay! I'm going to get advice on which tanks to play for the grand battles!"

I saw: "Buy these T8 Premium tanks!". 

 

I should have expected as much. 

(I mean, yeah, they did both of the things mentioned above, but I really hoped they would give me actual advice about Tech tree tanks. You know, the tanks that most of us use for most of our battles...)

  I really like the grand battle format, at any tier. Tier 8 GB's are competitive as it seems the greater number players each team is more skill balanced than with the fewer numbers. I hope for a few things, one being this battle mode will be a regular part of our options.

  Seems every one whines about MM ( those who forget the days a Chaffee faced top tier as a light tank), and wondered if the larger team player base would allow some sort of skill based MM? Could GB's be included as an option, say as a " more advanced player" thing?

  Just a couple ideas to open discussion, thanks

Actually the chances are higher for Tier 8 Grand battles than for Tier 10 ones. That is what WG said.

You're playing this game at the wrong time if you want player consideration. They will only do this when we stop buying stuff. For now they jumped on the everybody milk your players train. Continuous engagement and all that.

I suppose you could take it that way.

 

You could also take it as a recommendation for Premium T-VIII vehicles that are currently on sale.

It could also be construed as a recommendation for T-VIII Premiums that you may already own.

Its not as though you have to play Premiums at all.

Since this mode requires a T-VIII and not everyone has an earned T-VIII this thread seems pretty normal and to be expected.


If you're surprised that KRZYBoop would try to sell you some premiums then don't be, its his job.

He works for a "for profit" company.

Nowhere does it say you have to buy anything.

WG is for profit, however unlike the "for profit" corner store, you're allowed to hang out on WoT even if you don't buy anything.

 

If you really want some advice on playing in Grand Battles then post a thread asking for exactly that.
