Hey Tankers,

 

Got some news for ya: Ranked Battles Season 2 is coming up!

 

The format is more or less the same, with a few minor tweaks to the information being displayed in the postgame results screen so you can get a better idea of how your XP is being accumulated.

 

It looks like the prizing per rank has been broken up a little bit, too, so hopefully earning bonds won't be quite as difficult without making it to rank 15.

Once Ranked Battles get going, the Community Team will be posting a Ranked Battles thread sharing our experiences, what seems to work/not work for us, and hopefully getting some useful tips from members of our player community. 

Head on over to the article on our news portal for the full run-down! (the link won't redirect to this thread this time, I promise ;) )

Good luck, have fun <o

Still limited time of day (5 hour window) to play so less than half of your players have a chance at playing?

Or did you guys learn something with the extended hours like you had in Frontline and Rolling Steel?

I'm definitely in favor of the break-down of XP in the post-battle results page. I'm glad all of the drama from a few months ago led to something productive. :harp:

Ayyy. More bonds and other cool stuff for me! I like ranked even if it takes forever for an decent player like me to reach rank 15.

Are these going to be played at the same hours as the Global Map? Nothing like a torn player base....

Ranked battles July 23 to August 13

 

Season 9 on the Global Map is July 17-Aug. 27

 

who ever is in charge of the scheduling needs to get fired,  never mind the [edited]that decided a 6 week long campaign to give Mahou millions of gold instead of bonds/tanks was also a good idea.

Yeah bring back a mode that caters to the brain dead players... frontline only benifits solo players as it doesn’t reward team play at all it’s all about getting damage to get the rewards... you can move up faster on the loser side by getting general then a winner getting corpral rank...

I'm happy to see ranked battles return.

 

If Bonds as an in game currency are here to stay ( as they seem to be), and improved equipment and directives can be mounted on all tier vehicles, then why limit ranked battles to tier 10?

 

If bonds are in fact meant to be an end game incentive - then it seems their application should be limited to only tier 10 vehicles. Using directives and mounting improved equipment should only be available to tier 10 - much like the reward camo can only be mounted on tier 10's. Now, I doubt many players would actually drop 5000 bonds for improved vents on a Cromwell for example, but why even have it as an option? This baffles me.

I have improved equipment on my Skorpion G. If I didn't love the skorp so much, I'd have put it on a tier 10 instead

Seems very strange that they're going for another ranked season before dealing with the ammo rework. As things stand now, ranked's biggest drawback is that if you want a higher score, you may as well load nothing but gold. And on the flipside, even if you make a point of playing without gold the mode is still expensive as hell. Besides that, tier 10 actually benefits from 3/5/7 MM, so playing exclusively against other tier 10s throws that advantage out the window. 

 

But there is a way to solve all of these problems in the short-term, and that's to make a ranked season at tier 8.

No Ranked battles for me (again) it's too expensive to constantly play tier 10's even if you win you lose credits because people always play the over-armored superheavies and that forces you to shoot gold, it would've been better at tier 8 or 9 if you play, win or lose you can at least still make a profit like frontlines. Even with the hours its open, it is unplayable the number of hours the game mode is open only benefits people from the US, US players can play it in the mornings or afternoons but for EU and African players its open at 2 or 3 in the morning and we seriously don't have time for that

Please stop doing these during Clan Wars. Schedule them in between. I like doing the ranked battles but my first priority is to my clan.
