Ranked battles look promising!

Along with the usual earnings per battle, you will get bonuses (Credits, consumables, and Personal Reserves) for reaching a new rank and fulfilling the special combat mission, exclusive to Ranked Battles. At the end of a season, you receive a certain amount of an all-new in-game currency, Bonds, which can’t be bought with Credits or Gold. Bonds can buy new consumables and Personal Reserves that significantly boost Crew skills and vehicle parameters. The higher your score for the season, the more Bonds you earn.

 

Bad idea, really really bad idea.

 

If these are for use in random battles then it's simply forcing people to play ranked battles even if they don't want to or don't like it.

 

If they are only for the ranked battles then surely this will just make the best players better and climbing the ladder harder as each season progresses.

Sounds interesting. Although it's a bit disapointing that bonds can only be used for consumables and personal reserves. In World of Warships you get a premium ship if you get a good enough rank after a season. Maybe these bonds could be used to buy premium tanks aswell?

 

Maybe you can allow us to buy permanent camo with the bonds aswell?

 

I agree with what Homer_J pointed out above this post. Maybe scrap the personal reserves thingy and allow us to buy premium tanks and permanent camo for these bonds instead?

"Ranked Battles is a 15v15 mode exclusive to Tier X vehicles."
Well, it seems that WG has a short memory for exclusive modes.


02/09/2015 Update 9.10 is on a Rampage!

04/04/2016 Removal of Rampage Mode
With your feedback in mind, as well as the amount of time the mode has been available, we now have a decent amount of data to work with to see what has been working and what hasn't. As a result, we have decided to remove Rampage battles from World of Tanks with the next update.


Domination, Steel hunt, Rampage, whatever you call it. 
Try to make a game mode exclusive to high tiers? 
Less than 10% of players have Tier X tanks and they make 15% games.
I say this will die even faster than Rampage. Some players would try it for a first week, then the interest would fade away, the waiting time would grow and bye-bye, mode is ded.
The secret of WoT success is simple: it is played by many. Tiers 6 to 8 make 65% of battles. If you want to do a vital game mode, aim that people.

Its pretty hard to make a mode around tier 6 and 8 when all you've been doing to those tiers for the last 2 years is to pollute them with OP premiums (AMX, Defender, Patriot - all of which are better than their tech-tree counterparts) and ignore obvious troublemakers (KV-2, IS3). While inaccessible for many, tier 10 is by far the most balanced tier.


 

P.S: as a sidenote, type64 and blackdog would be broken OP in tier 6/8 only matches as of 9.18

How is anyone forced ?  There are lots of modes that give rewards (personal missions, weekend specials, (mini-)marathons, easter/christmas/etc special events, clan wars, faceit, (I'm sure there are others.

 

Nobody is forced to take part in anything.

 

If people hear about others winning stuff then it will force them to take notice, rather than just ignoring the new mode.

i dare you

- add DEFAULT ZOOM into battle. so when i go sniper mode i'm not disoriented because it has x25 zoom.. cuz i left the sniper mode before while i was in maximum zoom;

- auto return crew !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have 76 premium tanks. and about 30 researchable. i almost play only premium tanks. and it suсks so much to manually put crew to barracks and then put them in another tank;

just imagine i play in a session for example only Lorr 40, bc 25t, revolarize;

mle 49, fcm;

rhm, rhm7 lvl, kanjpz, jag88, skorp; -> and that's all in a session of about 50 battles +/- and now imagine what kind of pain it is to send crew to barracks, and to return it on another tank. i donaten over 4k eur in 2 years.. so i think i deserved these easy breazy features - THOSE ARE THE ONLY REASONS I USE XVM / PMOD

I agree, however 'significantly boost' might very well be the marketing description of 'miniscule improvement' in practice.

Game is so Edited boring now. I can not play heavy tanks.

It drives me nuts to hug a rock or a building . I lost light tank's freedom. Bullddog is now utterly garbage. Anyway, i think this hurried up update its an attmpt to make us forget about 9.18 , lol

The ranked battles seem a nice addition. Personally I probably would prefer if it was a continuous running ranking event, as playing at set times is not really convenient. Still looking forward to this though.

Wargaming don't worry about 9.19 until you have fixed the massive fubar with light tanks in 9.18

"Artillery won't one shot you anymore".. Yeah,guess what? second game I played on this patch,lost 1,2k HP(and died) to a T92 in my Pilot.Thanks WG for this wonderful patch.Besides the fact that High tier ARTY does tons of damage,it adds up the ridiculous 20-25 seconds stun time,which renders your tank useless.Like others said,now arty just pre-fires at known spots for the tank and just shits on you.I saw a poor T-10 lose like 25% of it's health and get stunned for 15 seconds,at the beginning of the game!
