Just completed my first handful of games in Ranked BattleS - thought I would give it a go - after all, it can't be that bad right?

The question I have is HOW did a game mode this bad get past the testing phase?

I can only comment on Rank 1 since I lost the first 15 consecutive battles, but the camping is definitely for real. Won the 16th. battle and won't be looking back, that was my last one.

 

I mean, you are up 3 kills on Cliff and then 4 tanks decide that it is a good strategy to camp in the north west in wait for stupids to come down the alley, while the enemy get their act together elsewhere on the map and end up beating us. Or the team on Arctic Region that all went to the south eastern corner and ended up fighting the enemy on two fronts while all being lit up, and only being able to see a few enemies themselves.

 

I've heard it's better at Rank 5, but at this rate it's probably going to take me a few hours each evening until sunday to get there...which isn't really worth the time invested, especially since a player like me will have to do that for quite some time before being able to buy one improved equipment.

It's still beta, so the answer is, it never did.

Correction - 6.1 million to get the tank. Another 1.5 million to outfit it with equipment + ammo, etc. Plus a willingness to lose a steady 200-500K credits per evening if you wish to play ranked battles with any frequency and a few hours of your life cursing the very stupidity of humankind (well, specifically those members of humanity who play WoT anyway).

Officially it is still in the testing phase. They "might" make changes to it based on player feedback from this beta.

No need to get equipment, people have already proclaimed that the 2.5% increase of improved equipment will hardly matter at all, so I guess the ordinary bonus of equipment hardly matters either :harp:

 

Loss of credits though, that is a real challenge.

IS-7 was very bad for me, I remember bleeding credits as a result of the battles I fought in that tank. This makes me somewhat cautious with tier X tanks in general, and in terms of ranked battles in particular. IS-7 is still the only one I have unlocked, but I may have an option to unlock T-62A soonish if I want to (not sure I do), and possibly also IS-4 later on (not sure of that one either).

 

I am having considerable trouble deciding which nation/line tier X would be the best option for me considering my... proficiency and play style, let's put it that way. In mid tiers my preference is mostly HT's with some MT's, also I noticed that Soviet mid tiers are far more playable and forgiving than some others. But my experience with Soviet high tiers (IS-7 in particular) give me concern. On the other hand, I am not sure about US tier X HT's or MT's either...

At low ranks, ranked battles are EXACTLY THE SAME as the "all the same tier" Random Battles.

 

There are 2 differences :-

1) In Randoms you sometimes fight tier 8/9

2) In Ranked, as you progress up the ranks, your team and opponents get better and better.

 

The only other difference seems to be borked map rotation in Ranked (that might just be my tinfoil hat interfering with my brain waves).
