Other than the 157584576 other issues with this *Edited mode, there is one massive balance issue. Seriously, the matches are pretty much determined by which team has the most heavys, this class really needs to be taken into consideration in balancing.

Do what you like with ranked battles, randoms need to be more random.

I actually find that my Leopard is the best tank to farm damage in and climb up the ranks. I don't care if my team loses as long as I'm in the top 3 it's fine. Against all those heavies you can easily abuse your camo/viewrange.

This game is a joke. I've had around 20% WR in ranked battles due to the fact i don't play Maus/E-100 and game puts me in the light tanks team.

E-100 is a victim tank in the current meta. A very poor man's Maus.

I was watching ranked battles on twitch.

As far as I see mediums are the best to reach high rank.

In my experience, the team with more meds won mosr of the time , if meds cooperate, heavys are helpless.

Yep I watched a few streamers yesterday and they mostly ran only the Maus and Type 5 heavy and had a 100% gold ammo load. They even said during the stream that to be competitive at rank 4-5 you need a heavy and full gold, large repair kits and cola. Ranked battles seems to be a credit sink hole. they were burning 150K per game, granted it worked!

Yes, mediums are the best to reach high rank,  i agree, i myself played my obj 140. But when it comes to what tanks my TEAM has, heavies makes it way easier to win. Random battles can stay as they are, but ranked battles NEEDS to have exactly the same amount of tank types on both teams. A gamemode such as this needs to be as balanced as is possible.

Yes randoms feel formulaic with the template system.  Preferred the old matchmaker.

I am trying not to fire any gold in ranked battles, but it is almost impossible with all these Mauses and hull down E100s. I would prefer a battle with ~5 MTs, 4 HTs, 3 TDs, 2 LTs and 1 SPG.

I'd rather be in the team with more mediums on quite a few maps...

Agreed.  I was in a battle last night where the red team started with 3900 more hit points than my team.  We got steam rolled.

I lost interest in the Ranked Mode after first day, to many try hards, gold spammers and other random crap but thats what happens all time in tier 10, hence why i dislike that level and so i am put off because i refuse to be like them.

Himelsdorf or any other tightly closed corridor map might not agree on same cases.

I won all the battles where we had more meds in himmels. Wolfpacks that push a flank hard destroy everything, and they can rotate around the map fast.
