Attention Tankers!

 

Thanks for your feedback on Season X, Commanders! This experiment has proven to be very useful and informative, so we decided to keep the 10v10 Ranked Battles format!

 

One of the most competitive modes in which the most skillful players decide who’s the strongest returns to World of Tanks with three new Seasons and some important changes. It brings with it heaps of rewards for good performance in combat, including fresh 2D styles, Bonds, Gold, and more! But the ultimate prize for all three Seasons is the brand-new Chinese 114 SP2 Tier X tank destroyer, which is exclusive to Ranked Battles. Read up on all the latest features and changes for the upcoming Season!

 

Learn more about Ranked Battles on a separate page in the game client with information about the core rules and rewards here!

The bond shop update, they will be only additions or some tanks will be removed? The tier 10 ones are going to be removed ??? Thanks!

"This year, among other prizes, you’ll have the opportunity to grab up to three pieces of improved equipment of your choice, from all equipment of this category"

 

Does this include a purple turbo?

Some interesting changes.

 

I'm glad to see that the 10v10 format was kept. Moving from 15v15 to 10v10 was one of the best changes ever to be made to Ranked in my opinion.

The change to a tier 10 reward tank does make more sense than a tier 9 reward tank, since it's a tier 10 only mode.

The 114 SP2 looks interesting without being broken, overpowered, or underpowered. So props on that. 

I definitely like the looks of the new Ranked camos, although I'm biased towards the look of Ranked camos, so...

The change to allowing you to choose your pieces of purple equipment is a positive one in my opinion. However, some clarification on whether Purple Turbo will be up for grabs is definitely needed, especially considering how important it is.

The additions to the bond shop are nice, but rather underwhelming. There's also no mention of whether the Purple Turbo will be available for regular purchase like all other Purple Equipment. Again, clarification is needed on that. Locking Purple Turbo behind Ranked right before a Campaign, especially when everyone knew how meta it would be, wasn't a good choice in the first place. It should have been put up for sale already.

 

Overall, pretty positive changes I think. Although we do need clarification about Purple Turbos, as already stated.

 

 

EDIT: I just realized that you only get 6,150 bonds from this Ranked season, unlike the 8,000 bonds we were getting each season last year. I don't know what the reason is for that change, but I definitely don't like it.

I dont have any tier 10 tanks at the moment except the HE nerfed FV215B 183. Any recommendations?

 

Is this event just going to be a world of wheelies event? Would I be hurting my team to bring a T100 LT?

Can someone please point me to specifics regarding how we acquire the discount for the tanks in the ranked tank/camo shop? There's a snippet in the video that seems to indicate that to get max discount you have to play 100 MORE games of ranked after you finish the divisions? Is that right?

Could we get some specifics on the 'personal cumulative discount' please? Other than a nebulous 'depends on your progress during the Season'

 

Cheers!

Guys, can you please explain us why you restrict the time from 18:00 CST to 2:00 CST? dont you see that there are some of us in latin america, and may be start playing at 20 BA Time is no the best?

then I check the EU server and I see the range is from 14:00 to 2:00

 

PLEASE reconsider this restriction of the timing or change the scedule, I really cant understand what would be the harm on extending the event 4 hours (from 14:00 CST).

Starting at 1800 CST is too late for me I am logging off at about that time.  Why not make the weekend have an earlier starting time if you won't do it during the week.  Or just put all tanks for sale for cash and skip the middle man.  Give it a wallet warrior camo so you know I bought it to keep the cheap seats from crying.

New changes are awesome.

 

I used to totally ignore ranked battles in the old 15 vs 15 format but in 10 vs 10, games are much faster, easier and the grind is more enjoyable overall.

 

I went thru the first division in 6 battles. I should probably complete the second division tonight and soon, I'll be classified in a league.

 

Does anyone know what was the requirement to rank in the gold league last season?

Really? You can't figure this out? Because WG loves to take the fun out of everything but more importantly, they love to constantly reduce the rewards that we get for everything.

Fair. I'm just disappointed by the fact that they had to make that horrible change amongst all of the improvements. Definitely dampens my enthusiasm.

There's a description in this article:

This is from when the mode was 15v15, but I assume it's the same here. I would just assume that you have to make top 7 instead of top 10.

Thanks mate! Surprised they didn't include such a table in this season's news post but at least this gives a decent approximation.

I edited the able to reflect how it looks. When you're in game if you click 'Missions' it'll be the second grouping down with 4 available. The title of the missions is: Missions to Increase Ranked Battles Items Discount.

 

Don't know why they wouldn't include this table or have it indicated anywhere else, but that's where it's tucked away. I guess at least you can track your progress?

10v10 is the worst thing for this mode.  All this is now is a zerg mode every single battle.

 

The best thing for this is to now is to change this to a 10v3v3 and let it only be for a 2 hour block that is random per day.

 

A loss should remove all ranks and send you back to 0 unless you are willing to pay an insurance cost of 1.35 million per fight.  

 

You should also have to be within a certain distance of your teammates say 400 meters or you start breaking down: first tracks then ammo rack then fuel etc.

 

This is not a team mode at all but a sit in the back and screw everyone to get points. People go off in different directions and then wont come back or try to flank when they see the entire 10 person team on the other side of the map. They would rather sit and try to kill a few low hp tanks when their entire team is dead. 

 

Not to mention that almost every battle involves a fire or ammo rack now.... kind of suspicious if you ask me
