This is not a Ranked Battle slag off post.

 

I'm not a very good player, I only have 2 tier 10s (IS7 and Obj 140) and I'm not very good in them.

 

I've played Ranked a few times.  It's OK.  Just like a Random with all Tier 10s.

 

But yesterday I had a Stonking game in my IS7.  Top for damage and XP, we won, I got my chevron AND I got 6 kills (which I think is the first time for me in a Tier 10) ... But no Top Gun medal.

 

I'm sad now.

 

I've just checked my IS7 stats and it has 1 TopGun medal, so I'm also confused.

 

Regards,

Stinky (Sad & Confused) Stonky

You're right, you don't get any of that stuff in ranked. Not sure why.

I've noticed this too.  I guess it's a "loophole" that WG have removed.  I don't know how early the platoon has to be formed to be eligible for the Brothers In Arms medal (I suspect it's from the start of the battle), but "last minute" platoons no longer get it.

Last minute platoons still get it, but it just can't be within the last 5 seconds or so. Yesterday I made a platoon with a guy about 30 seconds before we won and we got the medel. Later I again made a platoon with one but that was in the last few seconds of the match and we didn't get any medals. pretty weird.

 

Oh and OP did someone else also get 6 kills? because if someone else got 6 kills then it is the one with the most XP that gets the top gun.

Are medals seriously the biggest issue you guys have with ranked battles? :amazed:

Good to know and seems reasonable.  I wonder if it was a deliberate change or a side effect of something else.

I didn't think so, but it's possible.

Not really the biggest current issue with ranked battle IMO...just a thought.

I see you completely changed your comment while I was responding.

No, perhaps not the biggest, a shame though.

Yes, ranked battles are fine, apart from the lack of medals ... and the map rotation ... that sucks.

Yes I edited it a bit, sorry if I wasn't fast enough heh :)

 

Anyway, I think the mindless camping and utterly trash balance in tier 10 is more annoying, but that's just me.

You have to both survive for brothers in arms medal to be awarded.

I got an expert UK badge via a ranked battle. Finally got to nail the FV 183b :-)

You probably know that ranked battles aren't counted towards battles fought? Perhaps that's why..
Or then they are calculated afterwards or its a bug.
Played one night 'bout 15 ranked battles and checked the service record, still same number before ranked ones.
