Unless there will be ONLY OPEN MAPS and ALWAYS 3 ARTY PER SIDE there is absolutely no skill involved in this mode... I am at rank 4 and I am playing with 500-800 WN8 players clicking in arty.... skill, yeah of course, of course WG! It does not matter if I play heavy or medium tank 2x bct arty and 261 per side will quickly tell you camp redline and dont get spotted or you can play another game.

Ranked in WoT seems to be almost as flawed as ranked in WoWS, judging by a lot of comments.

 

But unlike WoWS, WoT ranked seems to be more thought through with the reward and star system than WoWS.

In WoWS it's a endless grind fest and progression can depend heavily on your team mates being able to think and breathe at the same time.

For players with lots of time or no life it's just "throwing enough $hit at the wall and hope something will stick" to get to rank one, which - at least in my opinion - is not how a competetive mode like ranked should work.

 

Don't have any tX in WoT, so ranked is out but even if, i don't think i'd be willing to even bother.

 

I'm trying to imagine what WoT ranked would be like if they'd use tVI instead of TX ( like they seem to plan for WoWS).

Yes ofc arty should be banned. Also a propper elo system is required to make it actually skillbased. This Chevron system, regardless of who is losing and gaining them is so flawed it aint funny any more.

Give in, join the dark side, play for fun.

This is why i suggested personal rating of 4k minimum to even be able to play ranked. Otherwise it's just not ranked really is it.

Clearly, that is why the better players have reached rank 5 far faster than the "I only play for fun" types of people.

I think 5K would be more appropriate.

That's my point... If it was up to some players plebs below x pr wouldn't even be allowed to play

Kinda pisses me off some times.

Why do you play arty in this modus then?

For the sake of the thread's direction, let's assume WG removes SPGs from this game mode.

Getting to Tier X... I'm not gonna say it's too hard (it wasn't for me) but removing noobs out of the equation... why?

 

I'm noob (git gud bot), by your definition I wouldn't be able to play it, wouldn't be able to get improved equipment, etc, even though I have al other requirements fulfilled. Elitists would play with other elitists alone and pretty much decide the fate of any matches in RB on the long run.

 

Could you OBJECTIVELY explain why?

Surely the "ranked" feature comes into play after the 4weeks when the Leagues start, and the bottom 50% get dumped.

Ranked battles in a nutshell:

 

1. Camp

2. Farm damage 

3. Win or lose

4. Earn Chevron
