Tankers,

Here's a sneak peek at some upcoming changes coming up in the latter 2020 and 2021 Ranked Battles seasons.

We're making some changes to how Bonus Battles work, as well as introducing Daily Battle Missions and additional rewards for Bonds, so that you can earn more prizes while you're playing Ranked Battles.

For more details, head over to the news portal.

Those reward tanks worry me, and they take away massively from the campaign missions. This is silly.

As per the website linked in the OP. As in they will not be permitted to be used during the Ranked Seasons!

 

Below is a list of reward tanks whose participation in the upcoming three Seasons of Ranked Battles will be limited.

Now just remove the single gained chevron for the losing team, replacing it with another slot of no loss of chevron so people actually play to win that mode rather than play to be top loser the moment the game's outcome is up in the air and you're golden

Its not the tanks that make Ranked so rank...its the way rewards/chevrons are earned. There is 2/3 of 3/4 of the square root incentive to play for the team.

Dont be aggressive early = chevron win or maintenance usually. 

So instead of 279es back row sniping ..it will be a Maus

Our tanks aren't op. We're op because we spend thousands of hours practicing. Playing the T95/FV4201 Chieftain is no different from playing any other tier 10 tank.

How is yoloing in the chieftain any different when that's what you do every single game?

"Whose participation will be limited" is not equal to "will not be permitted to be used."  WG editorial oversights at their finest?  Only The Shadow knows.

Good luck getting an answer.

 

I'm totally ok with no reward tanks, though I don't think that removing them from modes is a good idea, why not just rebalance tier X? lol, I won't get my hopes up.

About time they removed reward vehicles, next step is removing them from advances followed by clan wars. Looks like I can finally enjoy this mode without being collapsed on by 10 chieftains.

What do you mean they worry you? Thats a list of tanks that wont be able to take part in ranked.

"Limited" means that there are limits placed on those tanks. Specifically that they cant be used, because the line just before that one states:

 For the upcoming Seasons of Ranked Battles, only players in researchable and Collectors’ vehicles will be able to participate in this mode.

 

Meaning only tanks from the tech tree or the collectors section of the in game shop are the only ones that can be used.

Now remove the chieftain and 279e from randoms as well.... Knowing 90% of the time which way the battle is gonna go because MM decided one team gets tier 11s and the other doesn't keeps me from wanting to play that tier any more than necessary.

The Object 260 should not be a reward tank.  This should be exclusive to campaigns/personal missions.  It otherwise massively cheapens the experience of getting it.

 thanx wg now can change my mind to play ranked battle

Block Quote

 For the upcoming Seasons, we’ll reduce the number of ranks in Divisions from 15 to 10. The number of chevrons you need to earn to advance from one rank to another will also change, making Ranked Battles more manageable yet more competitive and challenging. We’re taking this measure to improve your experience and get you more involved in playing in Leagues. Thanks to these changes, you’ll be able to reach Leagues faster and progress quicker in the mode.

 

nice plz reduce losing credit bcz all hit gold and after 1hour we lose 2 million credit so ranked battle broken

So... do you think that list of tanks is a list of rewards for the upcoming seasons of ranked? Because its pretty clearly a list of tanks that arent able to be used in the next seasons of ranked.
