Not in a million years. Isnt it enough with CWs for the kids who thinks they can play just because they have used daddys money to buy T10 tanks????

Over the course of a year... if there's a season every month... League I player would earn 69k bonds and League III player would earn 18k (just the bonds from what league you're in at the end of the year).

 

How about buffing the amount of bonds earned for the weaker players, so difference between leagues is only 1k? Better players will still get more bonds, gold etc. but weaker players would earn a decent amount of bonds. Right now it's a night and day difference between the leagues, which would be fine, but better players will be better and better every season as they'll fit their tanks out with this premium equipment that weaker players can only dream of, unless they grind like crazy.

 

This move should also ease the community's negative attitude to this game mode.

only tier X, why. ?

 

Why not do it like World of Warships where you play trough the ranks. ?

Only Tier X is very stupid.

I like the idea of the mode because we can get rid off the bots and noobs,the rewarding system it's ok but i don't like the idea to buy improved equipments,it's not good like this. They should let us buy something cosmetic that we can choose from (unique cammos,emblems etc),premium days or something else that does not have superiority compared with a casual player. Over all,the mode it's something like clan wars but based on your skill... this is what we want on standard battles right? Sadly in randoms we meet a lot of stupidity and we can't do anything and this mode sounds good,but as i said,buying better equipements it's not a good idea. Imagine a team with 3-4 players that has this equipments vs 1 team full with tomatoes and potatoes that don't have equipements at all :trollface:... they will laugh on them because they can fight vs all 15 without the rest of the team. Cosmetic stuff it's always nice and rewarding and i would love to play the mode to get some nice "outfits" for my tanks,you want permanent cammos,emblems etc?! Then pay :child:

tier X is kinda "balanced" in their opinions... Get a "balanced" Type 5 Heavy or a Maus,spam gold ammo,yolo in front of enemies... you won! :trollface: And you don't need to be "unicum" to fight vs them in a better rank!

WarGaming A few things of interest...

 

 Quote: "Ranked Battles mode was not and is not intended to be the only way to earn bonds. In the future, we’ll make bonds available through other game modes"

 

When will this happen?

Sooner rather than later would restore some confidence and good faith.

 

 Quote: "All players get 100 bonds when the Beta Season begins."

 

Does this mean all players will get 100 bonds, not just those who are tier 10 players?

Again this would be a good move to smooth all this  'Stop 0919' malarky.

 

Thank you kindly

Only tier 10 tank I have is the Grille 15 and the only reason I have that is because I wanted to play the E100 before you removed it.

So not really interested in taking part not with a low armour TD.

This is annoying because there are goodies to win but because its tier 10 only im not in the beta season and unlikely to be in the next.

 

Limiting this to tier 10 is imo a huge mistake Whats the tier 10 player population on EU for that matter whats the population on the NA server.

Tier 8 would have had a huge number of players involved.

Rather think you shot yourself in the foot with this one, considering the posts on the forum requesting battles to be matched by player ability and statements it would never happen.

Now you bring it in but just for tier 10 and with elite equipment and consumables for them to win.

 

Convinced you just annoyed far more players than you pleased.

Had it been tier 8 any player could take part by buying a premium tank, sure they would play badly but they would be matched with all the others who did the same.

You might even have sold a ton of premium tanks,

Thanks for that video... the guy is a pure [edited]genius at complaining. 

 

7.5% for improved and 5% for the standard vents?  "improved vents are a whopping 50% better than vents"... that is pure talent.

Well I guess probably only about 20% of the player base will be able to play this mode.

The rest of us that don't own a tier 10 tank don't get to take part.

 

THAT SUCKS BIG STYLE.

The forum has been full of thoughts about this game mode. Ever since the sandbox I believe... And mostly it's negative towards the new equipment, but I was sure that you would eventually put it into the game considering you probably invested time and effort into it. But just because it's an idea you can implement, it doesn't mean it's necessarily a good idea.

 

You want to make a ranked game mode... fine then (you would still have to balance the fact that people are not on equal footing in this game, especially when they can pay to gain things faster + some overbuffed tanks requiring attention), but for the love of apple pie, just don't incentivize the game mode with better equipment. I don't care if it's going to be available through other means later in the game... it's just that the game doesn't need more power creep and disparity between people/tanks.

 

And also, take a better look at other games that have a ranked system which doesn't reward players with straight up better things in-game if they win.

Ranked battles is definitely something we've been waiting for but not like this...

 

As with most games that have a ranked system you need to be able to rely on the developers to balance the game continuously and with what happened to the t110e5 and what will more than likely happen with the maus this game mode will remain completely unbalanced for the foreseeable future forcing people to grind whatever OP flavor of the month tank(Flavor of the year knowing how slow these guys are at nerfing anything) to get anywhere in ranked.

 

Also gold ammo... why oh why is this even a thing in ranked??? a game mode that is normally based around skill will be nullified by the use of gold, people watch LOL ranked because its all about skill they don't just press another button and are given more change to hurt someone.

 

Hopefully because they've introduced a rank mode it will mean faster balancing and more interaction with the community on what to do to make ranked fair, maybe wishful thinking.

No thanks, especially that you try to pull stupid trick with improved equipment.

Well at least their is progression of some kind with this ranked battles and so might give me more incentive to play tier 10
