So I guess WG didn't like some of the questions they were getting in the RANKED BATTLES thread...so it's gone now too.

 

You apparently have to be on their discord or stalking their twitch channel to find out anything.

the only real solution is to quit giving them money

or find another hobby

 

the only person you can change is yourself - it's a cliche but it's true - and WG ain't changing

I haven't given them a dime for at least 5yrs now and have been recommending to others that they save their money.  People still buy WG crap though, so the game has gotten progressively worse and more pay2win than ever before.

The problem with deleting threads like the one about ranked is that they simply reappear.

WG wants two things from players: time and money. 

 

As long as a you continue to play, you are giving WG what it wants. 

 

WG does not allow FTP players out of the kindness in their hearts.

I remember a few months ago one of the staff posted that they were working without sleep (or words to that effect) to bring us some other bond reward event in way of compensation.

His thread was just YEET so I assume he is now working on his reeducation in Siberia.

Tbh even if ranked comes up the existence of chieftains and 279 will not make it one bit tolerable to play, the only way to make ranked work nowadays is to abolish use of reward tanks like they do in NA VS EU

I didnt know reward tanks were banned for RANKED there.  Interesting.

Honestly, you're right about this, at least as far as the 279 goes anyway.

I'm sure it wasn't deleted on purpose, must have been an accident or technical glitch because the superb Mod team here would never do such a thing....

Well, chieftain is OP as well, even if perhaps not to the same extent.   OTOH, not like ranked was completely dominated by 268v4s, 430Us, 907s, and 5As last time it was available, either.   Or rather, not like the battles were drenched in only the most OP tanks.  Probably most but not all of those players at the top did make significant use of OP tanks, but not everyone who used OP tanks ended up at the top either.

 

But you do highlight(again) the issue with giving the best players the best tanks and equipment.   It makes it harder to break into the haves club, and can easily discourage people from even trying, especially in a video game.

Yet another reason why I stopped giving them money and reduced the amount of time I play this game.

 

You are either buying the product or you are sold to other players as part of the product (i.e. someone to shoot at).
