Make ranked available for more hours, 8-12 pm is just madness. Who plays till midnight if the next day you got to work/school/fap or whatever?

 

I suggest you change the hours from 10am (Amsterdam time) till I dunno 10 pm? So players can play whatever time they have available rather than being forced to play on hours you may have to study or whatever.

 

Yes, I know at 8 till 12? pm the most players are online (and it's in beta stage), but still.

 

I'm sitting here waiting for votes at midnight like:

1: It's clearly marked as a beta. Indicating they still need to go over the data and feedback from each day, to make sure it's working as it should before opening it up 100%. Thus the limited up time.

2: So the limited hours is simply so they get the biggest traffic they can. Vs 2 battles at 10 AM since most are working then. As the more battles you have, the more accurate the data.

So all this: "Are you people the most stupid morons whose arses ever faced the Earth?  There's a reason why they only run for part of the day...  You don't see why?" from a 50+ year old some one was this needed? While i'm giving my opinion and asking a question?

 

However analyzing data throughout a whole day will also give certain information about the mode not?

To exclude all those with jobs and families that prohobit them from playing at that specific time of course! Reasons are obvious!

Don`t expect anything polite, calling other ppl , i quote " most stupid morons whose arses ever faced the Earth " . Infact , you might get an opposite of polite.

I am hoping that they open it to all tiers which would be great.

 

It would mean they would have to remove the tier spread which would be a popular move and hell while they are at it why not turn off the RNG.

Read what I said again.  I posed the idea as a question.  I never said anyone was that.

Which is extra amusing because it's these people, the ones with jobs, that are actually in a position to pay WG.

Three minutes per day would be a good length of time for ranked battles, it seems to be the length of attention span before gold starts to fly and any semblance of tactics and clever play goes out the window. How long before Random battles are infected with this (even worse) example of brain dead fun?

Well, it seems that the Russian server has a 8 hour window to play ranked battles every day. For some reason we only have a 4 hour window to play them.

 

Come on Wargaming what would Stalin say to that? Tribalism were you favor your own ethnic group instead of communism and all being made equal?

Think part of the reason for the time window is: Make sure enough people are present to prevent MM going haywire. Also, very likely WG learned from the T-22 rigging & set the time window; else certain less then honorable clans could rig themselves into rank 5 (play at low-pop hours, countdown time & make calls on who gets chevrons first & act accordingly).

I did not vote, because 1 option is missing :

- open SEVERAL time frames in a day

 

Not the whole day as it would dilute too much the player base, but with 2 or 3 various time frames for allowing working people/family/etc to join.

By instance around midday UTC (11/14 ?), end of afternoon (17/20 ?), and late night (22/01 ?).

And for avoiding rigging, T22 style, you would be allowed to go only in 1 session/day...

Russia is big, spans over several time zones, hence the more flexible time frame. May be morning in St. Petersburg but already evening in Siberia.
