As I understand it, it isn't losing chevrons that some have an issue with, it's the fact that you can lose ranks.

 

I hate those video games that make you go right back to the start when you lose a life so I don't like the idea that a run of bad luck can drop you right back through the ranks.  But then I already decided ranked battles aren't something I'll be interested in before it was even implemented.

Great game.. frustrating as hell though :)..meanwhile back on topic, Strange 3rd poll option. How can you have ranked battles if you only move up in rank and never down. That just benefits those with most time to play as they can fail through to high ranks.

The system itself seems ok, however they fucked up somewhere with the awarded xp. Explain this for example, my last game that made me quit for the day:

I'm in my 113, dealt 2024 dmg and got a kill, as well as 626 assisted dmg. I know I spotted all my dmg for myself because the only shots that were long distance I got spotting for my targets in between shots.

Not a good match by any means, needless to say we lost the match. To my surprise im 4th with 167 xp, so I check the stats of rank 1 2 and 3:

 

Rank 3: T110E5 - 1154 dmg, 473 asissted, 194 xp

Rank 2 T110E4 - 2131 dmg,  0 assisted, 212 xp

Rank 1 T57 Heavy - 1359 dmg, 896 asissted, 229 xp

 

I'm sorry, but did I miss something? Did WG start awarding xp for dmg blocked all the sudden? Or for potential dmg fired but not hit/penetrated? Cause I'm 99% sure there weren't any t11 tank on the enemy team that would earn you more xp for damaging them since they're a higher tier.

What are 'chevrons'? Some sort of ego boost?

The stuff you win or lose after the game. Kind of like your virginity except after every game.

How about making them harder to lose....for example at rank 3, you need 5 chevrons to reach rank 4....maybe at rank 3 you have to lose 2 chevrons to from the start of the rank to get demoted to rank 2....I like the mode, but it is demoralising getting demoted right after getting promoted.

id say, on the XP front, its probably that the XP is based on what type of tank you shoot (I guess)

so if you shot mediums and lights, and they shot heavies, they may get more XP for it


 

it might not be true, but its the only thing I can think of atm....

It needs to stay as it is. If you're better than average you will climb up the ranks. If you suck you'll stay at the bottom. They finally did something right in this game.

 

It's called "ranked battles" for a reason. It's not a grind, but a test of skill where good players are rewarded more.

You people do not seem to get it. Without the losing chevrons part ranked battles would not be ranked battles at all because even an afk bot could easily reach the highest rank in time. The whole point of the skill based part is to sort out the unskilled.

But by losing ranks quit some players dreamworlds got busted that they are the superior elite, they just dont have good stats because they are teamplayers.

We cant have that can we now?

 

Honestly if you cannot climb higher than a certain rank than this is the perfect measurment of your skill. The best rating so to say.

Would only make sense if the teams were balanced.

Their award needs a total rework to more accurately reflect individual contribution. Multiple chevrons for hardcarries, the possibility to lose chevrons if you win but barely contribute, and fewer removed on losses but hard to gain them on a loss.

Are you saying that the ONLY reason that WunderWurst does better than you in ranked battles is because he somehow gets better teams than you?!  This made me a chuckle.
