Hi, 

 

I personally feel that these equipment are a huge failure by wg. No one really wanted these.

 

No more just for fun randoms, because you "need" to grind improved equipment... I'm rather competive person so i just can't ignore better equipment. You grind tanks for fun, improved equipment because you must. 

 

I go to work already. Now after second week of ranked battles WOT is feeling like work. It's just a neverending marathon. If this is the future of WOT, it has lost it's fun.

 

Solution is simple, allow improved equipment and single use thingies (improved effect) only for clanwars and ranked battles. That way you only need these equipments for your goto tanks, not for all of them. I have around 50 tanks, so i need around 130 improved modules. In theory i can get 5750+2000 bonds in a month. So 1,55 equipments per month. So it takes almost 7 years of grinding in ranked battles to fully equip my tanks. 

 

So if these are here to stay for randoms, i will brobably quit WOT quite soon. I have played WOT for 6+ years, but this is something that i can't handle. 

 

edit. Corrected bonds calculation.

Not in a million years. Full tier 10 randoms are already bad. Add in people that hug the redline at the earliest sign of a loss and you have a gamemode no-one will ever play without a huge carrot on a stick, A.K.A the improved equipment.

No, because it would still be tX only. And now that I saw a few matches and matchups, I have lost most of my interest, because it looks like that the entire mode is filled with statspadding lowbobs.

Why do you absolutely need improved equipment for ALL your tanks. I think it was never intended like that. 

 

And how do you get 5750+6000 bonds? it's 2000 for getting to rank 5 each stage and then the bonus if you get in the top 10% (which is hard).

The hardest part about getting top 10% is,to play 30 Games each evening between 1800-0000.

Is it so hard to realize from wg part, that people likes to grind tanks. Because people likes tanks, you can drive it, you can shoot with it, you can look at it and it stays in your garage. Improved equipments just give some stat boost, do you think that people likes stat boost as much they love tanks? Jesus wg, think, it might help...

been playing with tanksgg on new equipment, it not really make that much difference

 

for example, my fav tank is E50M so I added fast rammer, better vents and only 0.3 seconds quicker reload, actually not enough to even fire 1 extra round in a normal battle and perhaps only 1 or 2 rounds in a full 15 minutes assuming you can keep gun firing constantly throughout the entire game, hardly likely

 

Now extra view range I take every time but other than that not really sure

 

perhaps on tanks like 430 the vents, rammer,v stabs make a much bigger difference?

 

edit, not sure about the crew or equipment 1 off boosts, not showing those things on Tanksgg yet so and extra .6 seconds reload on E50M for example if I stack items might me more interesting

I would play the mode a lot if it was fun, different enough from Randoms and even if the rewards were only a handful of gold, personnal reserves and unique camos.

But that equipment is some cheap bait from WG, to attract a maximum of players and make them purchase premium with the least possible effort.

 

 

If half of the rumors about the redline camp and goldspam are true, then I won't play it much. If the gameplay was more like the Domination Mode in WoWS for example (which encourages active gameplay to secure the caps) and something was done about goldspam, I would probably spend a lot of time in Ranked, as the mode would be worth of my time. But such a suckish grindfest to get OP stuff isn't the way to go, WG.

redline camp is true, but got better as week wore on, don't know if that's because I got to higher ranks and better players or just players getting used to mode

I don't care that much about improved equipment. What bothers me is that you have to grind credits to be able to play this game mode. You lose like 200k-600k per night playing this mode depending on tank you choose to play. They should give out better credit rewards from gaining ranks.  Otherwise I don't really see the point playing. It's not really fun to grind for you being able to play. 

 

And it seems that only profitable class in this mode is arty. While I lost 600k in one night my clanmate made 500k credits by playing ranked with arty.

Yesterday I came to the conclusion that because this mode is just randoms with people being rewarded for losses that I'm not going to bother despite the equipment. Barely 1200 people are in the rankings right now to even get 1 equipment piece this month. All of those have 10 rank points after the first week. So unless you are prepared to grind out a shittier version of randoms for a month you won't get the equipment. 

 

Meanwhile I had a streak of chevron gains with only 1 non-gain, reached rank 3 and then promptly met a few people who still couldn't manage to drive around out of sniper view and not sit directly behind me. Not to mention ANY amount of tactics was nowhere to be found still. 

 

This game mode is just [edited]terrible. Playing with only unicums somewhere in the first week gave me some good hope, but the retarded chevron system and the necessity to grind through shittermatchmaking every goddamn week is just too much for me. I went from feeling hyped to play the game again to just playing XCOM2 and Rising Storm 2, both way better games than this crap. After the defender cancer, killing off of strongholds, buffing of maus, cancer type 5 derpgun, retarded platoon matchmaking, light tank nerfs(WHY?!), the [edited]chrysler and now this I'm really not that interested in the game anymore. The apathy I feel about playing this game that I've spent so much on my time on is unreal.

The main reason I do not play is: it is only tier X which is a great credit sink.
