so you are removing any kind of skill requirement to actually get any kind of reward tank.  Glad to see you are catering to the perma reds that refuse to improve at this game and "play for fun" and are a detriment to every team they are on.

90% of players work afternoon shifts?  I didn't know that.

Maybe extend the prime time from 1500-2200/1500-2300 to 1500-0300/1500/0400?

Just picking a number but the amount will be significant - 90 percent used for troll effect and apparently it worked.

Now that sounds reasonable maybe you should work for WG marketing department.

Indicating the time zone has significant value here. I assume you mean Pacific time. Thinking outside your bubble, 0400 PT is 0700 ET and has a tiny little problem with the server reset time. If the event has to be time-of-day restricted, WG has probably maximized the number of online/available players to participate given that NA would span 5-6 time zones (or more).

Might give it a try just to farm some bonds and maybe get a tank out of it but if more toxic than the hell that is randoms I'll pass.

I'm hiring some kid in Omsk to win it for me. Probably cost $50 and I can come here and be insufferable about my skills for months.

RE: New Items for Bonds


"With the start of Ranked Battles 2020–2021, we'll update the list of items available for bonds in the in-game shop. You’ll be able to get your hands on a number of valuable goodies."

 

Looking for clarification please. Does this mean these new tanks will be in addition to the ones already there; or replacing the existing tanks in the Bond Shop?

The new tanks are just terrible for bonds (in my opinion). Why no T-22 Medium or Chieftain/T95 (tier 8)??

List of new tanks:

IS-5 (Object 730) - 10,000 Bonds

KV-4 Kreslavskiy - 10,000 Bonds

IS-6 B - 8,000 Bonds

M46 Patton KR - 5,000 Bonds

Chrysler K GF - 8,000 Bonds

Same here man, especially since many of the reward tanks are banned from the mode, which some are a pain already in randoms

I'm actually very excited for this upcoming ranked season. It's good to see WG listened to the request by many players to ban reward vehicles from participating.

Who the hell plays this game enough to get any of the top tier rewards? Like Christ, I have a life outside this game. It seems like you'd need to devote several hours per day to have a chance at placing high enough to get the Concept 1B.

My only complaint here is that the Ranked Battles (which is a grind) starts the DAY AFTER the Clan Wars campaign (which is a super grind) ends. There's literally zero down-time. This is a recipe for burn-out...

 

I just bought Modern Warfare, so maybe I'll play that instead.
