Why not try evaluating the substance of what he had to say instead of the messenger?


He has nothing to say IMO that is not tainted by his need to get clicks. So there is no value in his National Enquirer style of "reporting".

Ranked should be tech tree tanks only, the same goes for any competitive format. I'm tired of playing against clans in advances and clan wars who thing 15 279e iS tHe bEsT mEtA

 

At the very least WG could try to balance reward tanks so they are unique and good in their own way, not just better in every way than their tech tree counterparts. 

I mean that isnt hard to beat just bring Vkk's or even a maus can easily kill them

WG made an easily exploitable game mode for the sole benefit of a very small sliver of the player base, while using everyone else as fodder, with the lying sales pitch that anyone can compete? 

I'm shocked. 

It's not like it hasn't been like this since the first clan wars.

Anyone can compete, but competition means some win and some lose

What an easy garbage attack when you can't make an argument. It's like saying an author is just trying to sell books, which is sometimes true, but an easy garbage attack even if it isn't.

Says the guy with 13 battles on the account. If you were right, people wouldn't keep clicking his channel, would they. Easy garbage attack.

It's not an attack, he'd literally lose half his subscribers if he said "ranked is great, if you don't make bronze league youre bad"

Wait, when were ranked battles ever good in any of WG's games? CVs, Smolensk, Harugumo, Colbert and other flamethrowers ruining WOWS ranked, OP heavies ruining WOT ranked, you might as well consider that random battles instead

I think I saw a whopping 10 Maus' during the whole ranked season, and three of them were me, with Types showing maybe half of that.  Despite the constant complaining you hear these superheavies simply aren't competitive when their one advantage doesn't hold up to 340 skill rounds.

His typical target market emo sky is falling apocalyptic rage children. He has nothing of substance to say an its only to garner the above types of followers to increase his click count. He has been a flip flop fraud for years.

the whole thing about competitive is an even slate and skill advances. WOT ranked battles is almost anti-competitive at this point.

Great review by QB. I love how he showed the before and after WR stats of the obvious cheater. What a joke. As if WGing can't see this. Nice catch QB.

 

This game is rigged for the benefit of the Gatekeepers.

Why is everyone talking about the tanks? OP tanks are not unique to Ranked Battles, and are thus an orthogonal issue that should be solved separately. Sure, QB made this same mistake. But even with all tier 10s perfectly Ranked has lots of other issues.

 

The main ones being chevron distribution, the mode being chevron positive, and bonus battles. Quicky touched two of these in his video already.

 

And why should any ranked mode be chevron/point/elo neutral should be self-explanatory. If you get more chevrons the more you play, it's no longer about skill. Sure, skill will get you up there faster. But anyone can climb up given enough time. It's no longer about who's more skilled but who dedicated most of their time for the game mode.

I love the QB actually backs up his argument with statistics that prove his point and then people get in this forum and want to attack him instead of refuting the arguments. I mean when 95%+ of the top 30 have the same 3 tanks, it's pretty obvious that those tanks helped. QB is a good player, like him or not. Also, as he said, he got to the point where playing more (even playing well) actually hurt his rank. That should never happen.

 

That said, I am admittedly not that good and my schedule does not allow me to play all that much in the evenings, but when I did play, I managed to be top 3 on winning teams a lot and even top 1 on losing teams a few times, but it's pretty obvious that the mode is basically just a grind up to a certain point, then it's down to the tanks you can bring. I did well in my Progetto 65 and UDES 15/16, but I did it by playing extremely passive and then racking up a bunch of damage in the end game. Had I progressed up, I am sure that would not have worked much longer.  I did play one game in my Maus and actually did well, but that was sheer luck more than anything.

The problem isn't the allowing of Clan Wars or Reward tanks.  The problem is that (some of) the Clan Wars and Reward tanks aren't appropriately balanced against the tech tree tanks.  THEN, you've got the problem of tech tree tanks not being balanced *cough* EVERYTHING RUSSIAN *cough cough*.  Until there is some semblance of balance, these sorts of issues are going to exist.  It doesn't matter if it is Clan Wars, Reward, Premium, etc.  Fix the balance and the problem goes away.

 

EDIT:  TRU_voodoo got to maxed rank in a Manticore.  So, what does that tell you?

I don't understand the point of complaining about reward tanks when people are going to use next best thing (which people will also complain about) or you could get them yourself? 

 

We really not going to talk about chevron displacement and maps? 

 

Also, somebody needs to help me out. When the top 5% get the majority of the rewards, why is that an issue? The best players should always receive the best awards. What's the point of being good if you don't get anything for it?
