Why don't you make so basic changes to the mechanics of this game before you people come up with more fantasy garbage?

Previous seasons have demonstrated that some of the maps aren’t the best fit for the specific requirements of Ranked Battles, so we’ve updated the list of available locations, removing Erlenberg and Swamp.

 

so uhhhhh what ever happened to this notion? I have played 2 games on Erlenberg already and people are reporting games on Swamp as well. You really like collecting the most statistics right before you change something don't you.

what else you expect from wargaming? they screw up everything they try, I can hardly get a win, But i sure can get crap paris and swamp, which swamp is not even supposed to be in rotation, Feel like i am playing alongside window lickers on a 5x super weekend!!! Not a good start, They mise we go back to tournaments instead of this ranked battle screw up, They basically made it worse then beta, How you mess that up when you had beta seasons? WOW just wow

In seriousness, the issue here is that at the end of the day tier 10 is expensive to play and a competitive setting is even more expensive due to the need for premium ammo and consumables. And to what end are we investing the time, energy, and credits? For bonds. WG really could cut out the middleman and just sell improved equipment and directives for credits and both parties would get exactly what they want without going through the trouble of managing a new mode and consequently splitting the random queues. And I've said many times in the past that if they did sell these goodies for credits it would actually be a massive boon for newer accounts as they could use directives like the one that gives sixth sense if you don't already have it (if it was affordable, that is). Hint, hint.

 

As of the mode itself, its perhaps a little more approachable than before but is still schizophrenic. If they wanted an individualistic mode where players are to act independently for their own gain, then why still score with a large emphasis on win/loss? And if they wanted a competitive team-based mode, why still rely on the random **** otherwise known as 15v15 format, and without any form of voice comms no less? It doesn't make sense to compromise, just pick one or the other and stick to it.

Great suggestions, Miko.  Can you post it in Russian on the RU forum so it will actually be heard?  The NA forum is just a bunch of us players.

so we are we going to get a response to this? Previous seasons have demonstrated that some of the maps aren’t the best fit for the specific requirements of Ranked Battles, so we’ve updated the list of available locations, removing Erlenberg and Swamp.

 Cruddy hours for the Eastern time zone 8PM to 1 a? Maybe two hours tops. Thanks instead of time zone limits make it a limited amount of games you can play in a day.

So why didnt WG remove the maps they said they would from the rotation? The announcement specifically states erlenberg was removed, but its still in there. I can provide a replay if you really want.

Erlenberg and Swamp are still in rotation.

 

No link to online out-of-game leaderboard.

I came here from the link that said discuss on the forums and ended up in [edited]and whine in the forums. I don't think there's a single positive comment yet so I'll post one.

 

Thanks WG for this event. You didn't have to do it, and by the comments here these punks don't deserve it, but I appreciate the endeavor and have enjoyed it. It feels like a typical random tier 10 match with higher rewards for winning and carrying than normal. I especially like the redone ranking system so far. It's much better than the first two renditions of this game style.

So once again the hours for Ranked Battles precludes those that need to sleep at night. I hereby register my complaint that I'm being discriminated against. Also, I would like to register a complaint on behalf of all those players that were hoping that I could play in the Ranked Battles so that I could improve my skill(s). Finally, I would like to state that, since I can't play in Ranked Battles, I will not play Farmville as some had wished me to, but will continue to pollute the teams in Random Battles. So there! Pbbbbhk!
