Is the ranked battle season over? WG always posts the end day but it normally ends the day before.

I checked my rank this morning and I was around 320~ and I ended up dropping just outside of league 1 by the end of the day. Though I haven't played ranked in the last week and a half, I was amazed to see my position drop over 150 positions when I havent hardly budged all week. 

 

I was hoping there would be battles tomorrow, but it seems like the season ends before the time allotment. Poor luck on my part I guess.

JakeTheMystic:

 

I was almost in the same boat as you.  Played to Rank 15 (with a earned chevron rate of 50%) and stopped playing for about a week until yesterday -- a few clan members probably also did the same.  When I noticed players not making League 1 with rank 15 I figured they would participate again in ranked battles to earn additional ranks.  I figured the bond bonus for League 1 and swag was probably enough incentive for many players playing a few more games to get to Rank 16.

 

I ended up playing Ranked yesterday.  Took 13 games to go from Rank 15 to Rank 17 - about 2 hours of play as had to wait for tank to exit battle.  Brought down my Chevron earn rate to 49.XX but nevertheless the extra padding was worth it for the bonus.  Last ranked battle season I also played to ranked 16 for the same reason.

 

Although, I do like how Chevron earn rate is a factor in determining position in the leader boards I believe that 5 chevrons to advance ranks past 15 is to low as well as the 25 bond reward.  I think it would be better if it remained at 8 chevrons to advance rank with with maybe 200 bond payout or something past for each rank past 15.  Either way I think many players are going to feel burned last minute in ranked battles as their was a lot of movement in League 1 yesterday.

Was at Rank 12, near top of League III at about 12:45am with maybe one or two battles remaining before the tournament ended ---

 

Had to get 2 more chevrons to get to Rank 13 and also League II, which was key because I needed the League II bonds plus Rank 13 bonds to get to 5k bonds so I can get another set of Improved Equipment -

 

Won a white knuckle game and waited in anticipation for the XP screen to pop up at end of game, really thought I might get spot 11 and no chevron...

 

GOT #2 SPOT to get 2 more chevrons and hit League II, just in the nick of time!!! 

 

Ended up in spot 1010, which is aok for a crapper like me --  I only had a 36% or something chevron rate and 1560 average damage, but pulling in 785 average XP, 729 assist, over 150 or so games got me some nice bonds -

 

p.s. I really enjoyed the ranked battles meta (somewhere between the hectic pushes of clan wars and the solo decision-making required in pubby games) and felt like I learned a LOT about playing tier X, got a lot better at my patton, 907, super conq, etc, mainly because the competition (nearly all blue and purple past rank 8)  was so good it forced you to step up your game, and also watch fantastic players in post mortem view --- great way to get really useful play experience for tier x

I kept getting 1 to 2 Chevrons away from Level 18 and then my teams would be far less purple.  Ended up 2 Chevrons shy but it says 163rd and League I, so I'll take it.  Does anyone know when they pay out the bonds and other goodies?

Last season was 1 - 2 weeks is typical for the payouts, badges and camo themes.
