If I didnt participate in Season 1 and 2, does that mean I cant get the reward tank due to it costing 9 medals?

How many seasons will there be this year? Got loads of irl stuff to deal with the next two weeks, and I work during most of the time slot, so I might not be able to do more than qualify...


I have 4 tokens from season 1, I hope I will be able to add to those if there are more seasons happening later this year, when I have more time to play.

One problem I just came across.

Why have the chevron requirements gone up so drastically?

 

From last season:

https://worldoftanks...1-2022-stage-1/

It took 22 chevrons for Division 3, 23 for Division 2, 25 for Division 1, for a total of 70.

 

This season:

https://worldoftanks...-2022-season-2/

It takes 29 for Division 3, 31 for Division 2, 34 for Division 1, for a total of 94.

 

That's a 34% increase in the number of chevrons required.

And the fact that the rewards have stayed at 6,150 bonds instead of going back to 8,000 (which is where they were back when the mode was 15v15), while lengthening the grind really rubs me the wrong way.

 

Some good changes were finally being made to Ranked... (10v10 format, less arty and wheelies, less camping TD's, shorter grind), but this is a giant step in the wrong direction in my opinion.

 

EDIT: See below, but it looks like the Ranked article had a typo in it. Counting the chevrons in-game, you only need to grind 70.

What the heck? why? ranked was already long enough, why would they make it even more grindy?

It's not WG if they don't make things progressively more grindy and less enjoyable

Article must have been copied over from European server where that is the required chevrons to complete it both current and previous season, but luckily it is just a mistake and is the same this year :)

So i've never participated in ranked battles before, but looking at some of the bond-rewards I'm interested.

Approximately how much would I need to play if I'm a average (50% +-1% winrate) player to attain 20k bonds during this event?

Thank you for the information! That's a relief...

I've confirmed with a friend that EU is in fact grinding 94 chevrons. No idea why NA only has 70, but I'm really happy we do.

In one season? I don't think that's possible. You get 6,150 bonds per season + whatever you earn by playing tier 10's. After you reach Leagues, there are missions that let you get Bonds, but that's only 75 per day.

But, there will be another season, so you can get 6,150 bonds then as well. Sadly one season is already past.

And there will be more Ranked after this season.

 

As far as time needed. The best thing is to do all 20 Bonus battles today. Just plow through them, but try to get the best performance you can as it gives you bonus battles.

After that, I suggest only playing 5-10 battles a night. You can only use one bonus battle per tank per day, so play your strong tanks for bonus battles, then get off for the night.

Last season it took me 65 battles total to grind through the whole thing. I'd expect it to take you longer though, due to skill (not trying to be rude), lack of experience with Ranked battles, and lack of tanks (as far as I can see, you only have the Obj 268v4. It's an alright tank for Ranked, but not great). Still doable though, but you'll have to work harder for it.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. I also have the 430u though I've not played it (just unlocked it at end of xmas event)

Can you spend bonds for the ranked tanks after the first session closes in a week?  Or do you need to spend when the ranked season is active.
