Would any of the community contributors kindly explain the thinking behind having only one window of opportunity per day to play ranked?

I do actually have a life, I also work and often I finish around 22:00hrs so by the time I'm home ranked battles will be all but done, then my 'life' will kick in at the weekend when of course being in on what will hopefully be a lovely summer-like weekend...

 

1) why did they change the original 09:00 time?

2) why not have 2 windows in the day? Like 09:00-13:00 plus the evening start-up?

 

Ok I'm just an old whinging B'stard but surely one evening window is not all WG are going to offer in this mode?

 

Gripe over.

Yeah it sucks if you're working outside standard office hours. I'd still like to know why there are time windows to begin with. If they want to restrict the number of ranked battles people can play for whatever reason why not just put an actual hard limit on the number per day or week?

I'm at work so I don't know what the window is in UK time... But is it the same window that we all play clanwars/advances? If so, GG Wargaming, it takes someone special to think that's a good plan...

I can't believe how utterly dumb/ignorant the people responsible for ranked battles are... are they really that dillusional to not know about CW/SH?

Considering this is WG EU, are you really that surprised?

WG you so silly. And what's the rational of starting at 19:00 instead of, say, 17:00?? Lot's of people coming home at around 17:00 and only have time 17:00 - dinner to play.

They surprise me. Every time I ask myself "Can they make an even dumber move?" and BOOM! Surprise motherf***er!

Why have a time restriction anyways?

If any, it could be from 10:00 am to 23:00 pm UTC if they have to monitor for bots.

Anything else is most likely excluding more than one from "beta" season.

 

I was actually looking forward to it, but that late in the evening? :(

When I've read about Ranked Battles, I noticed they'll be at set times, and that has decreased my interest. Reading this tho... :facepalm:

I had to ask: do people at WG actually PLAY WoT? Because what they are doing to WoT recently, certainly shows they don't. :sceptic:

While in-game 30mn ago, I had a large pop up saying "Join Ranked Battles Now !". I selected a t10, then clicked on "Ranked battles" in the menu and was transfered to EU1. Ok, up till now, fine.

 

But, then I received another message saying : "Ceasefires  Ranked Battles are not available until the end of Ceasefire. Check the schedule in the calendar."

Oh! Because there is a calendar ??! Ok... where is it .... where is it ?....

I finally managed to find a tiny icon 0.5cm large, with the context-tip saying "Calendar".

 

GREAT! I clicked on it, and guess what I got? A calendar. Saying that ranked battles are open from now/today (05 June). SO ! Why can't I start a game ? Today is Holiday for many of us, and no access ?

But NO time frame whatsoever, and I have to come here for understanding that not only there is a calendar, but a time frame WITHIN the calendar (and this beautiful calendar saying of course nothing about it, nor giving time frames).

 

Well...

I know it is Beta, but advertising for a mode you can not join is not really smart, and it starts with a bitter taste...

If eating a fresh pack of crayons means playing the game, then they are pros at it!
