Yes, spend more money, to earn yourself the opportunity to spend even more money spamming all the gold you will need to compete in ranked battles. Where do I sign up? Jeez....

By the way, can't wait for future You Tube videos, showing replays of epic damage farming by players in super-pimped tanks. Can just imagine QB saying, "And NoxiousWombat (or whoever) is running his new extra-greasy gun-rammer (or whatever) in his E25. And here we see him killing all fifteen enemy tanks in two minutes. Oh my days!"

It's good to document the P2W aspect, I think.

They really don't seem to care about anything anymore. The entire forum is filled with hate about this update and they decided the best solution is to just give us another special...

A game should stop being called that if its not fun anymore. This game should be named "Milking sheeps for money" now.

Priceless! :D

 

Wargaming's response to the problem of new players not having tier X tanks for ranked battles is: give us €55 so you can buy a tier X tank and experienced players will have somebody to farm!

 

As if we didn't already see enough new players driving tier 8 premiums around having no clue of what they're doing.

 

At least last time they had a tier-X only battle mode they had the decency to give everybody 3 tier X rental tanks for free...

Is this a special or an advert to spend €55 euros to buy a T10 tank that you need to have in your garage to be able to enter the new 'ranked battles'...


 

.... really WG, this is sinking to new depths.... maybe soon you need snorkel

those rental tanks... people had no crew skills, many had no equipment...

It would have been real rental if people had a choice of 2 default skills for every crew member. after tank is lost, crew goes away too. that would have been fair. imagine tier 10 without BIA, lamp, repairs, anything at all.... ... ... ... ...

I was one of those who used them.... and yes i was being farmed. I did like the mode, but those rental tanks... I mean if i rent a car, i like it having a [edited] engine in it.

There's no duration indicator with the new Missions 2.0 UI which is kinda sad.

Good point. I agree that it would have been fair to give people rental crews and equipment as well. I didn't use them so I didn't consider that.

 

However, in a way, it was still much better than suggesting that people should spend €55 just to access one of the game modes...

Can think of no reason a ranked battle system couldn't be for any tier.

Well ok if it was for every tier you would need 10 separate ranked battle games.

 

Tier 10 is an elite part of the game made up of a very small proportion of the player base, it has some advantages and disadvantages.

First advantage is that you never meet anyone of a higher tier, everyone is either equal to you or one or 2 tiers lower.

There could also be an advantage that at this level most of the players know what they are doing.

 

Disadvantages huge repair costs high pen and damage leading to everyone win or lose ending up with some damage.

Also allegedly lots of premium ammo spamming.

 

So the idea of ranked battles is to match you with and against similar ranked players.

I would suppose there are probably quite a few 49%-52% players at tier 10 then much smaller numbers above and below those % though I am just guessing.

But it might mean finding 30 players of same or similar rank might prove difficult, you might even find some players ending up against a relatively small pool of players.

Im wondering how long it takes some fixing to take place.

 

Ranked battles would have made a great idea for tier 8 as everyone could take part there would be plenty of players of all ability levels to take part.

Wargaming would sell many more premium tanks and the only negative might be mass defender patriot battles.

It probly will be in future. but atm they have to establish a user base in that mode.

Lol, let's remove the need to play and grind credits (and hopefully improve as a player) and give them the option to blatantly buy a T10 tank.

 

Nice one Wargaming this will certainly not have any negative consequences for the general state of the playerbase....*cough*
