I just read the description about Ranked Battles and have some questions:

1. Why are the hours discriminating to us on the east coast, i.e., 8PM is close to bed time? Can't there be early evening hours for us?

2. Are those chosen for the Leagues removed from the pool of players so that those lesser skilled will have a chance to improve while battling with similar ranked players?

3. Will those chosen for a League be segregated for their own battles by the MM or will their be an additional dropdown choice under 'Ranked'?

 

I remember that Ranked battles were the answer to lesser skilled players being steamrolled so I hope that those who excel are promoted into a new classified battle type so that Ranked Battles don't become another source of 'noob' punishment.

Well because of the time problem I don't even have a chance to even try ranked battles, they are over BEFORE I get home from work.

 

8pm Bedtime?

Actually YES. I live in the eastern time zone and have to be at work at 4am.

So what do you think is an appropriate bedtime?

EU players are getting [edited] as well.... This is only doable for a select group and they are able to get premium time, credits, bonds and gold.

PST players will have it the worst.  Being 3-hours behind PST and 6-hours behind EST.  Will have 1-2 hours to play which actually be only a couple of matches.

As a player that came in League I last season, I will be sitting out this season. The reward of bonds for 1 piece of equipment is simply not worth grinding out for two-thirds of a month nightly. If only about 120 players came in League I last season with the new rules I would assume that number will be even lower, perhaps as low as 50. Not worth it for no reward.

Meanwhile I'm still scratching my head wondering why WG avoided the really juicy issues, like how to prevent premium ammo/consumable spam from making ranked into pay2win. Or maybe (engage tinfoil hat now) that is exactly according to plan.

 

Also not impressed with the way they're handling chevron earnings. They're still essentially doing the same thing as first season, making it so that you have to hedge your bets against being on the losing team by redline sniping like a little beech. I don't know why they thought the new chevron configuration would be any different. They should just ignore win/loss entirely and score both teams as one group of 30 players together with only mild exp bonuses for winning if any at all. Without the threat of a loss looming over our heads, the atmosphere would be way more active and dynamic.

Thanks for all your responses, but can anybody explain what happens to those that make League grade? Are they left in the pool or migrated out?
