TAKE. THE. GODDAMNED. CASTLE. ON. [edited]. NEBELBURG.

 

I have played over 20 Grand Battles in the past two days and lost most of them and in all but one of those the loss was because no one contested the damn castle. I don't know how I wound up with the team that lost castle EVERY GAME, but I did (and not for lack of me going there myself).

 

So... PLEASE, PEOPLE.

Also did they take out Klondike? Haven't had one game on there at all since 1.0 launched.

I turned off Grand Battles. Had around 6 rounds on them and got [edited] [edited] each time, no fun.

If you don't have it turned off on purpose, they're pretty plentiful right now if you take a TX. Soooo many idiots playing TX for the grind.

Considering most players rarely see grand battles, they probably have no idea to take the castle is a good thing. Just tell them it is like valley on lakeville or beach on overlord :hiding:

I've never had a Grand Battle on AU, which is where I play tier 10. It's enabled though.

Offense is perhaps useful for LT15

 

But the rest... Just give me standard.

I turned off assault because it was just too much stupid for me to take - even though it was really good for LT play. But I've kept encounter on... never had a big problem with encounter.

 

I mean, sometimes there's THAT IDIOT who won't reset, but I don't think the rate of THAT IDIOT is any higher on encounter than it is in standard games.

Encounter is the one with only one white cap circle? I usually only play standard, the other two are usually fail fests.

 

I remember having team mates literally meters away from the cap circle, but won't reset because there's a chance they'll damage their pixel tanks. Best to throw the game, right?

Yeah, but you get those dopes on standard battles too is what I'm saying.

Pretty much my experience, people don't move so you try and force an issue......big mistake - massive campfest with arty support.

Yesterday I had my first assault match this year when I took up a friend's invitation to platoon for the first time. I never played any assault matches in Random battles ever since I bought my EVEN 90 even though I had it turned on all this time.

After only playing standard and GB for ever, platooned with some mates where the leader of the merry band had encounter and assault turned on, and we got 3 in a row.

 

Assault on Erlenburg (defense). Between the start and my late realisation that "bloody hell this is assault mode!" the team had yoloed forward to the normal standard fighting positions and was largely wiped out in 3 minutes. We managed to delay and defend until we were gunned down 30 sec from the end.

Encounter on Lakeville. most of our HTs yolo into the valley, enemy team storms city and caps us out. RB's lads in the top tier HT's do great damage in the valley though.

Encounter on Murovanka, team dies by racing forward en masse into an enemy which has somehow stumbled onto the concept of focus fire. 

 

At this point there was frank feedback given about the relative merits of the different game modes.

Any summary on Franks feedback?
