Want to get your bloodpressure up?

Want to break your keyboard?

Do you enjoy being rewarded for doing nothing to win and still advance?

 

Then join ranked battles!!!!

But it's skill based matchmaking! Isn't this what everyone has allegedly always wanted? :P

This isn't skill MM. This is "get lucky with team and composition" or "farm like you're going for 3 MoE's" to get into the top 3.

Will never ever play ranked battles. Whats the point? Some marks on the tank, did i miss something?

Or did people think this would bring all the 15-14 exciting battles back because its kind of skilled MM?

Why cant they just make a few new maps?

Looks like a lot of effort for what's essentially a win streak counter. Not sure you really needed all this development time etc to just have this feature. XVM has had it for ages ...

Yeh its crap basically, has nothing to do with ability, you camp to not lose chevrons and hope you don't get a terrible team, don't do anything aggressive or risky cos no one will back you up at all, they will just watch you die. 

 

Having like 4-5k damage games where I lose a chevron whilst enemies with one shot of damage gain one because someone carried the and they fluked top 12.

 

Should top 6 of either team at least, punishing people for getting two crap teams in a row is stupid, if it's a random move on, who cares, but this drops you ranks.

 

It also shows how wonky the XP system is because I have like people with 2 kills and half my damage finishing higher on XP cos reasons.

None of this should surprise anyone who's seen ranked battles in WoWS. Those of us that have saw this coming a mile away.

Skill shouldn't matter, its totally logical people who do 200 damage go forward because they were randomly on the right team. Even better is one team getting full heavy on city maps, while other meds. GG

WG.... whoever made that call to take away chevron  for anybody who is not in top 3 of the loosing team - have totally ruined any chances of this mode.

 

With my winrate of 52% I would need to do what... 19 more wins then losses to get to 5th rank... its like 1k battles. Considering that:

 - T10 battles are boring.

 - T10 battle are expensive.

 

(not to mention, that this conditions of being top3 on the loosing team really promotes camping, as you get better chances longer you stay alive)

 

today was the last time i tried this mode.

As long as you don't go full potato on a win you should be fine - essentially it's all about farming on losses so you don't lose Chevrons.

 

They should probably looked at the reward structure a bit. I wouldn't see anything wrong with 2 Chevrons for people winning big and fewer removed for losses (maybe a few positions of no change).

 

http://wotreplays.co...e/3632911#teams

 

That game is one where essentially a handful of us did well, but there are 2-3 players who did one shot of damage who gained from that battle, and on the losing side 4 people did more than 3k damage. I gained a Chevron from a 1.5k damage 15-4 defeat by consistently falling back earlier than necessary and trying to track/farm.

 

I see what they are trying to do, but it needs some work before it makes sense as a competition.
