Only WG could respond to years of complaining about tank type imbalance in randoms with a new MM only to TOTALLY ignore that in its new battle mode. Played 3 ranked battles, every single one has been grossly unbalanced with 4 or 5 extra heavies on 1 side.

Had a game last night where I was the only heavy on my team, while the other team has 2x Maus, 2x IS7 and a Type5. Meanwhile we got a couple of TVPs, Obj140 etc. This is just terrible. MM like this means you have to give up map control of like half of the map and just camp relentless, lobbing shells from the spawn. we lost this game and I lost a Chevren. Just sucks, situations like these.

Yea, think tonight I'll just roll around in the Obj140 or something. Maybe the Cent.AX.

Yeah, so playing on Sand River last evening in my third Ranked battle and only my fifth ever game in my Maus.  We had two HT, me and a T-57.  The enemy had seven HTs.  The balance was us having five additional MT.s   We won because all the enemy HTs came down the West where they found me, all alone.  I slowed them down hardly at all but managed just under 2k damage (I bounced something near 7k damage).  Our MTs steamrolled up the right flank in a wave like a locust storm, devouring the enemy MTs and we won it easily.  They were capping before I was even scratched.  I was mid-table on damage and advanced.

 

First two battles were balanced on tank weight.

Well this gameplay will die as died the other attemp , its good what we have and start work on this. We dont want another gameplay with stupid rewards for advanced players to be more uber against new players in random battles.

If enemy got lots of Maus/Type 5 tanks and in smart positions, behind few td protecting them, those meds will get exterminated before they have managed to bounce some shots on them...

 

TVP with regular ammo can just [edited]off if it have to hit Maus. duno about heat, but its low pen heat and duno if its inaf for well angled Maus lower plate...........

 

Problem is those heavies WILL bounce something even if they are not Maus/Type 5, but meds will not bounce anything.

Plus meds NEED coordination. Meds have to attack in proper numbers, not just 2/3 of them.

 

Lots of strategies work in clan wars, but they wont work here cause no one is communicating.

Held off two IS-7s, an E100 and some forgettable med in my t62a for 5 minutes or so. Alone.

 

End result was victory but with a loss of 69k.

 

That's not really fun.

You are right, its extremly cost intensive.... losing a game is like losing 10-50k credits.

Even if you win, you make not much credits.

I got to rank 2 and got 175.000 credits and some reserves, so i maybe have +- 0 credits income and some XP.

 

Beside its a very demanding game mode, i think i don't want to play this more then 2 hours in a row.

 

And sure yes, a well angled maus or type is very difficult to kil sometimes its even impossible, so i choose from the beginning only tanks with some armor like the E50-M or an IS7. (I dont own Maus or Type 5, otherwise i would choose this tanks. ;) )

You guys realize how happy this makes me?

 

Since ranked is just T X only and not tier 5+ I am staying here and enjoying the show.

 

beats being tier 8 and facing a type 4 or type 5 heavy on a city map.
