Question: If I have a EU account, is there a way for me to connect to it from the USA?

So...is this another step towards the abandonment of the NA and APAC server-populations?

I was really looking forward to this season of ranked battles, since it was one of my favourite events in this game.

 

If you're going to implement the rewards in other way, please don't make it a grindfest, like the new Frontline or those tank challenges.

Can't you just implement the Ranked battle system with everything except the different divisions?

I would honestly kill to see WG's earning reports. Even though NA has 1/10th the population as EU and 1/20th the population of RU, I bet the NA server is on par with EU servers earnings yet we keep getting shafted by WG

i'm not liking what's going on with WG in general.. From nerfing vehicles that did not need nerfs to MM which is a lazy MM that does not take into account player's skill and matching vehicles to vehicles..

 

I stopped spending money... Last vehicle i got was the T-5 because of 70% off and was worth it... Every time this game pisses me off because of  WG's cluelessness  it reaffirms my commitment to not spend any money.. Not a dime...

 

Example : FV4005.. i don't own it ... i've tried it on Common Test.. They completely screwed up on the nerf.. We all know what the problem is with this vehicle.. It was not the 35 top end ... it was not the 12 reverse.. This is why i think WG is out of touch and is not worth spending on anymore... They need to replace some of the people that work there.. The ones that have a final say.. It would be a great improvement on how players feel about this game..

But what I'm assuming you want nerfed on the FV4005 is a "defining feature". They nerfed it and maintained it's defining feature, they may not have nerfed what you wanted, but there is a reason they nerfed it the way they did.

Why did they nerf the Type 5's gun ?  Why are they not nerfing the FV's ? The problem with the FV is the amount of damage is can do in one shot and nothing else...

I understand why NA decided to do it, but maybe restricting it for 4-6 hours as before would've helped with MM queue times.

But it still is a let down, since like a lot of people I was looking forward to test some of my newly acquired tier 10s in Ranked against players with similar skills. Now my tier 10s feels less valued, since I mostly play them only for CWs and Missions anyway.

Let's hope the alternative is something to look forward to, not a repeat of some recent letdowns by WGNA.

Why not get rid of the S.A. server and just merge it back into a N.A Central if the player base is so low?

doing that would make little to no difference either way

Well Im pretty much dissapointed with this anouncement.

Last ranked battle was ok, now we have nothing.

Perfection is the enemy of the good.

Hey Tankers,

As many of you have seen by now, the next season of Ranked Battles has been canceled on the NA server.  This was an unpleasant decision and not one we made lightly.

Q: Why are you canceling Ranked Battles?
A: After testing the structure of the new ranked system, we found that excessive queue times would lead to an unpleasant experience for NA players.

Q: Is Ranked Battles canceled everywhere?
A: Only in NA and APAC, they will continue normally on CIS and EU.  The new version of Ranked Battles has a dramatically increased rank spread, which increased demand on MM.

Q: Couldn't you just run last year's system?
A: Dissatisfaction with the previous iteration is what lead to the creation of the new one, and the old one is no longer viable.  We tested a number of tweaks to make it suitable for our region but none lead to a suitable compromise.  We made the decision to not offer a suboptimal version of the mode and instead to focus on a fully realized version for the next iteration.

Q: Why did you make a system that doesn't work in some regions?
A: Our development team was focused on completely revamping ranked battles to make a better experience for everyone, taking into account player feedback from previous seasons.  Ultimately these changes, while positive for a design perspective, created unexpected issues when tested on NA and APAC servers.

Q: Does that mean we (NA players) will be unable to earn the rewards from this season?  There are special styles and a reward tank available.
A: We are now working overtime on creating an alternative for NA players to earn those rewards.  We will make sure all players have a chance to earn them.

Sorry about this one Tankers, we aren't any happier about it than you are.  Details on the alternative TBA ASAP.

CM
 

 

I, probably more than most, am really sad about this.  For me, Ranked Battles is the only opportunity where I can get rewarded for my individual accomplishment even though my matchmaking is far less desirable.  Even when they're all shades of purple on my team, somehow the Red Team has more and better.  But it don't matter in RB (like Front Lines - sort of).  At least it didn't for me...

 

:(

Unfortunate to say the least.  With that said, I wonder what the alternate way to earn bonds might be.  I really liked the thing 2yrs??? ago where you played tanks and they took the best five game stretch of games you had in it to achieve a ranking and placed you against everyone else that had played it.  The rewards were premium tanks and stuff if my memory serves me right.

I'd rather have a quality product and with Frontlines demanding as much of my time a week a month not sure if I even have the will to play ranked at this point.

 

Besides the last ranked didn't keep my attention for three days.

What are the plans for selling tanks for bonds ?  I assume nobody is going to be earning enough bonds to pay 15,000 bonds for the Object 907 or Chieftain that they wanted.
