I know tons of folks have commented/complained and posted about ranked battles for this season. I'm adding my 2 cents because I feel the need to vent. After 2 weeks of playing, I've managed to burn through roughly 15 million credits. The bonds along the way are nice, but I'm not sure they equal my credits - and I'm very sure that reward tank isn't worth my grind. And that's hard for me to say, because the only tanks I don't have are CW tanks. So yeah, ranked is about as attractive as CW to me at this point. I've played nearly every night, from anywhere from an hour to the entire 5 hours. After making it to division 1, I've bounced from 0 rank to rank 3 and back down about 6 times. The teams are NOT balanced, as was the great hope of ranked battles, and often they are straight up lopsided. That's basically randoms that costs me more credits. No thanks WG. Keep you tank. I'm officially done chasing this one - there was nothing enjoyable about this experience. GLHF WG.

As much as I hate arty... switch to arty if you have a tier X arty to play. It's much cheaper to play, much easier to play, you'll get more shots out and get assistance from stunning. I hate arty but I also hate ranked and arty is just the simplest way to get through it IF you don't care about the league garbage.

I actually started doing that in division 2 - playing the hell out of my 261. But for whatever reason division 1 has just been unbearable. Whole team collapses before you can even deal dmg or get assistance in arty. It's just not worth it to me any more. I wanted the tank really, but beyond that I didn't care much about the leagues, but this is not about skill at all. It's all about RNG - and RNG is just not my friend these days. And there are TONS of subpar players on lately. That's not mean to be an elitist view (I'm nowhere near unicum level), but just illustrates how this is not about skill. Folks who's only tanks are a Type 5 or Jpz100 run out onto the battle field (and somehow have made it to division 2) and die immediately. Nothing wrong with playing like that if everyone has equal share of stupid on a team. But that's not my experience :)

I was stuck at rank 6 division 1 for 7 days until all of a sudden I had an 80% WR day and finished in nearly 2 hours. Only after I took a 2 day break though, every day of those 7 days I was sub-40% and it sucked terribly.

I've just finished the last 5 battles with 4 of the being 13-0, 14-0, 12-0, and 10-0 losses.  Would love to reach the level where all my teammates are blue/purple as I had done by now in previous seasons.  In this season, my matchmaking follows my regular MM and these blowouts do not afford me the time/opportunity to rise above the mediocrity.  Even when I had the all purple team with famous players, we got spanked when the whole team lemminged south and then FAILED TO PUSH to cap.  Lemmings work only when they take advantage of the advantage.  This season for me is bologna sandwich.  The only thing it has been good for is to let me know that I'm on par with the most purplest of stats - and quite often better.

Div 1 is harder because you are getting matched against other div 1 players who are generally above average players. So if you dont pick up your share of the carry you will fall behind. 

 

Losses arent a huge deal as long as you maintain top 5 in most/all losses. Had some moron reeing at me earlier blaming me for a loss, but I got a chevron so why should i care? Treat yourself as your teams VIP and you do fine, but if you are too passive you won't get chevrons on winning teams.

And, the best part of playing arty in Ranked now is that you can't 'easily' be TKed. Can't tell you how many times in the first Ranked season that I got TKed within 30 seconds of the timer running out.

Ranked battles takes everything that's wrong with the game (blowouts, credit losses, lemming trains, OP tanks, gold spam, long painful grinds) and cranks it up to 11.

Yep way to expensive and simply not fun. I gave up on it and took a break with the release of RDR2 PC. I'll come back next week for Frontlines.  FL is a grind but at least it pays.

Very fortunate to have unlocked the Prog 65 with a great crew. My total credit deficit after making it to the leagues was 3.5 million. I find it best to play a good tier 10 that has APCR as its standard round.

not true, I have been getting about 7-8 pure potato players from the 3rd division still, and I have completed it. not sure why i am even playing in ranked still, with the crap teams after crap teams, I imagine anybody already in the league, and still playing is only playing for a lousy badge.

Glad to see it ain't just me. I went right up to rank 9 division 1 in under 6 days but have been stuck now for the last two and am ready to break my keyboard in two. I went 9 and 13 last night. I actually got within one Chevron and then had another string of blowout losses. I am just treading water until the wg logarithm allows a few decent teams again. Just getting the 9 wins was possible only because I got lucky capping it out down a few tanks on 3 of those. They really need to reevaluate Chevron loss for the next season if they want to maintain any player base. It is pathetically low at this point.

I just made it to Div 1 and the games I described above were from there.  Div 1 doesn't play Div 1, it plays all 3.

Not enough players to divide the game play better.

How are you losing so much cash? I’m running consumables @20k a game and have only lost 100-200k. I’ve found most of the team better them random.

I am in the bottom of the bucket and people keep telling me to play arty because it's easy mode. Well :

1. I don't have a T10 arty and

2.  Doesn't having an "easy mode" undermine the entire excercise ?

 

I play arty, and am not anti-arty but maybe arty shouldn't be in Ranked. 

Of course, EBRs with their aimbotbots shouldn't be either but I digress...
