Hey Tankers,

Let us know what you think of the new season of Ranked Battles, kicking off soon:
 

Patch Notes

 

Changes to the Ranked Battles
 

- Now a season will last 21 days and is not divided into stages

- Increased the number of ranks from 5 to 15

- Reworked the conditions of earning chevrons:
- The top 10 players on the winning team and the top player on the losing team will receive 1 chevron
- The top 3 players on the winning team will receive 1 additional chevron
- Players who took places 11-15 on the winning team and places 2-5 on the losing team will retain a chevron
- Players who took places 6-15 on the losing team will lose a chevron
- Added new functionality: rank shield. Some ranks will be "shielded". The shield will have a particular number of durability points.
- Reworked the interface of the main screen in the Ranked Battles for proper display of information about 15 ranks
- Reworked the interface of the rewards for the ranks and season. It can be entered from the main screen and includes:
            - Information about the rewards for each rank
            - Information about the rewards for the season
- Changed the art of the vehicle ranks: they were replaced with the rank points. The principle of earning rank points remained unchanged.
- Removed the display of the vehicle ranks from the vehicle panel; the vehicle ranks were replaced with rank points in the vehicle statistics.
- Reworked the progress interface of vehicle ranks: upon reaching the maximum rank players will be able to see the number of the earned rank points in the Garage.
- Revised the Leaderboard interface for the Ranked Battle mode.
- A new season of the Ranked Battles will begin soon after the release of Update 9.22. The season start will be announced separately.

Hope they plan to expand the playing time (each day) or is WG going to limit it to the prime time players only, AGAIN.

from the notes ( Starting from February 7, a season will only have one stage— now it’s just 21 days and a 15-rank ladder to climb. Ranks 5, 10, and 13 will grant you special protection from losing a rank in case of defeat. Rewards have been supercharged, too: reaching Rank 9 will grant you 1500 bonds, with bigger numbers given for higher ranks.) So were are they?

Nothing in that quote says that the new season starts on the 7th of February. It explicitly states that starting from the 7th that the season will only have 1 stage now. Not that It starts the 7th, or the 8th, or WHEN it will start.

​Really that's how you read that? " Starting from Feb 7".... I guess you can read it your way, but that's a incredibly poor choice of words . If that's what they meant why not just say "Starting with the new season"? Or "With the start of the new season" or "Going forward..."?

That's how it's written. You chose to read it differently than it was written, not me.

 

I'm in 100% agreement about it being poorly written and other ways that It SHOULD have been worded, but that doesn't change the fact of what it says.

What time of the day are the battles?

 

What date do they start?

 

Does WG not know the answers to these questions or just prefer to treat players like MUSHROOMS, in the dark and throw manure on them.

All this negativity.  What's up with you?  Probably their plans hit a snag.  They'll get there eventually.  It's a FREE game LOL

I doubt they will, on NA ranked would be downright exploitable if you could play 24/7.

 

Especially considering how spread out the ranks are going to be this season. I'm just hoping the queue times on NA for higher ranks are not hindered, I can see a lot of rank 1-4 players queuing up into rank 10+ people and have a ? pop up in their head.

 

Generally speaking I'm looking forward to seeing if this season works out well, or if the first 2 beta seasons have driven people away never to return to this mode. I find it strange they say 2 maps are taken out, but no full map list means that what, Mines/Sand River/Arctic Region/Live Oaks are going to be in?

Well, when something only lasts 21 days, knowing when it STARTS is pretty helpful.  WG is not very careful.
