Please share your thoughts.

 

For me personally, every match my team has been camping, and then the enemy comes roflstomping you like crazy.

 

Also, Murphy's law is hitting me so hard.

Literally BC's snapshotting me from far away.

In my Obj 140, I bounce the: 1. Side of an E-50M  2. Side of a Cent AX  3. Rear of a BC all in a row.

And in my last match, I bounced on an enemy Grille 15's hull with my own Grille 15.

 

I am ASSUMING this only happens because the ranked battles have just started.

So later this week, when everything has settles down, I am willing to give it a second chance.

 

If it will continue to be the same stuff, this gamemode will be nothing but throwing away 60k almost every match.

 

Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Played three in Jgd Pz E100. The first one was a narrow defeat which seemed  balanced and I earned a spot in the top 3. The second one was a steamroll defeat. The third was one a steamroll win. Cannot say that I am very impressed by team quality. I assume I must progress to the second level to get more interesting battles or am I too naive?

Either that, or maybe it's just too chaotic because ranked battles have just started.

I'm just giving it a few days to settle down, see if climbing the ranks will be possible later this week.

 

I can't beleive I'm actually struggling to do even 500 damage in tanks that I have like 2,8k average in in randoms...

It's terrible, i have only 2 tear 10's the E5 and the Jagdpanzer E100, and i can't do anything because all they do is spam HEAT at me, it shows no skill only the ability to press the 2 key. The idea was to show who could be the best at the game not press the 2 key the hardest

I was under the impression that "ranked battles" meant that you'd end up in teams where most of the players were about the same, skill wise. 

Instead it seems to be just the ordinary jumble of random noobs. 

 

Damn.

 Dont expect less steamrolls when you go up the ranks, the reason there are many now is because its all tier10, so all tanks are powerfull and have more dpm.

When the player skill goes up, once a gap or advantage forms for one team, good players will push that and the disadvantaged team will collapse.

Watching skill4ltu playing ranked and it doesn´t look much fun.

 

His words "ranked battles means everyone is sniperschnitzel". So ranked = fail. They should remove the top 3 on losing team getting a chevron.

XVM still says that there are oranges and unicums on the same team.

I've played some 10 games or so and so far it's been no different from random battles what so ever.

No no no, we all know the matchmaking is rigged so that all the unicums are on one team and the oranges on the other  :trollface:

Yes it is, if "ranked battles" means "same as always". Then it is impressive, indeed.

I would give it some time and then see what it is like.

ATM to early to draw conclusions.

I wonder how tomatoes will react when they will realize they are stuck forever at lower ranks.

I think they will simply lose interest and return to Random Battles.

I just thought I'd take it as a weekly chore to crawl my buttocks to the second rank and never care of anything more. So, here's my reaction even as I don't probably fill the category of a tomato anymore. :sceptic:
