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

 

Play a light tank and spot for the team, you can regularly earn credits in tier 10s for doing assist damage. Don't shoot unless you must and don't die..

Isn't it better to have Ranked battles available for  24/7 within the season dates? More players can play at their own time.

 

By the way Ranked is formatted right now. It is more of a tournament format for ORGANIZED Team composition not for a  RANDOM  team composition.

For the love of god please stop overlapping huge events with eachother this divides the player base in half and also makes clans stress out because half wants rank and the other half Wants global but you can’t do both...

Why do the ranked battles only run in the evenings until 11pm PST? I usually don't start playing until after 11pm PST, when everyone else in my house is asleep. They should run until 2AM PST, imo.

Well, I had an interesting experience with ranked battles last night.

I went 2 for 8, placed at least top 5 in all but one win, where I was about 13th. Placed top XP with mediocre performances in two loses, and top in the other win. Ended up netting 4 chevrons with a 25% win rate.

 

Not sure whether I'm supposed to complain about bad teams, brag about gaining chevrons despite the win rate, or just laugh at the whole thing.

 

Update:  Went 8 of 15 today, netting 1 chevron.   Finished most battles middle of pack(6-10th place) with a few lower and higher,  so things seem back to normal.

im not worried about this season of ranked given that wargaming changed the time from 8pm to 9 pm start time, Some of us have to get up at 5am for work!!!! not worth it to just play one hour

Please wargaming i beg you, NEVER include Paris and ENSK in ranked battles again, First Paris belows in the ground and out of the game, 2nd Ensk does not belong with any tank above tier 6 lol

Regarding this part:

Block Quote

 Regarding the last component of “Damage and Destruction”, it is worth noting that the number will be the same for all team members and will not affect your placement after battle. Also, despite the fact it’s not a consequence of the player’s personal actions, we decided to include it in this category as it is directly related to damage and gives you more transparency.

 

In particular,  the bolded part.  I feel that rather than give transparency,  it actually helps to obfuscate what's actually going on. It would be more transparent if it were its own category and/ or if it simply weren't included in any sub category.

My suggestions

 

Fix/remove gold ammunition (more pen less damage), make it easier to ping the map (not a whole damn square), make teams smaller for easier coordination (maybe 10), create custom map selection/rotation for easier learning, remove HE guns on higher tiers like the type 5, annnd try reducing rng to 20% or something.

Ranked battle is awesome. Currently sitting at rank 23. Top 5 on the whole server :). Don't know why people are still complaining. If you don't want to play ranked, don't play it. Go play random.

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...

 

Nothing but clan wars, strongholds and team tourneys reward team play. There is no incentive for teamwork in any other mode, especially Random battles and this stupid Ranked battle mode. I refuse to waste any more of my time or credits hoping I get a decent team to roll over the other one. It's stupid and a disincentive to play this game. I would not recommend any player grind to tier 10 thinking this might be enjoyable in the slightest. My ONE hope grinding and playing all the hours in this game was that reasonably skilled players would learn to cover flanks, not suicide scout, and learn how to use cover after playing the thousands of battles required to reach tier 10. At the least WG could try to balance the skill levels of tankers in mm by evening out the number of low skilled players per side. This never happens. The game is broken in Random and Ranked battles and WG refuses to do anything significant to rectify this. Frontline was the only thing WG has done to improve the gaming and COMPETITIVE experience. 

I've done what WG wanted. I've ground out almost every tank in the game. The game that had so much promise fails in the one thing it needs to succeed at. Making it competitive, fair, and fun.

 

All it is to me is a tank collection now. A very bitter end to years of trying to excel at a game that doesn't give players a fair chance to succeed.

 

Edit: I foolishly tried again. Wasted 100K credits on pathetic teams. Reached rank 2! woopee! Then sat in lobby for 4 minutes waiting for the next battle. 17.5K peeps online at 20:30. That's disgusting WG. I'm done with this BS.
