Well, that's one of the issues at least partially solved. It's still way too much effort for what, 1 improved equipment piece a month?

Wargaming why don't u think stuff through before introducing it into the game...

 

 

1.  The time thing...

 

  ok this is now kind of fixed for u guys i guess but it shouldn't be limited to any time at all it is ranked not a CW campaign or am i wrong?  In other games it is not limited so i dont understand why it has to me in this case but whatever doesn't really matter to me

 

 

2.  The way the ranking works...  

 

if u think about how u get a high rank it can either be archived be playing very good or but just investing enormous amounts of times and get lucky 5times in a row on a tank wow 

why didnt u take other games as example?  why dont we have like 10 placement games or so and then take the average EXP (maybe weighted with DMG and Kills/ the exact formal in not my JOB!!) this way u would get a placement by skill which ranked battles should be about and then in the season u could get some point based on the place in your team by EXP like 1. +10 2. +9 3.+8 ... 10. +1 11. +-0 12. -3 13. -6 14. -9 15.- 15 

or something like this...( AGAIN not my job to come up with a perfect system that is YOURS)  now these are not rankings but points by which u could bet to a better rank within the season

 

 

 3. Why do i have to be ingame to see my rank...

 

Why cant u just mirror the ranked ladder stuff on your Website so i dont have to login again if i want to see my actual rank at the end of an evening or whenever really this shouldnt be to hard u had the CW campaign rankings on the Website so... Hello why dont think of this stuff YOURSELF??(aren't you the ones getting payed for this?)

 

Thanks for reading i guess 

 

Have a good one

Why is RB mode available only at some hours? Is there any reason behind it? As im playing usually after comming from job I only rarelly have opportunity to play. Im not whining, just curious if its how it should be or just beta test feature.

Get people to play at one time and it will force people to play at the same time, good for quick matches, playing people of similar ability and ranks.

Can you imagine you want to play at 2am in morning with drunken people or not many. You will wait for games. You could easily get ranks/chevorons when all the other good people are in bed.

Yeah and now remove "top3 gets chevrons in loosing team" so people could actually play for the WIN and not for "hurr durr ill camp in my balanced Maus until my team dies so i could trade my HP for dmg and end in top3".

As i wrote here.

Once again.

EQUAL AMOUNT OF TIME IN MORNING AND EVENING.

Why people that can play at night 4 hours can get more bonds

than people playing 10 hours in morning and evening ?

Sounds fair or right ?

What is wrong with you WG people ?

 

P.S. Wake up and don't IGNORE morning players.

i guess because NA has a far smaller server population and is generally speaking worse... MEMES

I am glad they decided to reward players who did good, even if losing. But the way it is now a lot of players play for defeat from the start and don`t try to win, only try to farm dmg and steal kills for being in top 3 (looking at you, redline camping Mauses).

Well it doesnt make sence to me. I understand point of frequent hours, but I didnt want to RB be open 24/7.

Rest doesnt make sence at all - how can I get easy chevrons at 2am? People go to bed regardless of skill...

1 improved equipment piece for a month shouldnt even be a reward ( it creates even bigger gap between players ) .

Why is that a problem?

true FAQ for anyone concerned...

 

timetable 4 hours, extended to six, all late day,so, how many actual users do play it?

really , one of the biggest fails of this mode, is that they dont have open it 24/7 ... i dont get the logic , and i dont think no one does....except the 4-5 dudes that work (?) there thought was a good idea...

my guess is that only 40% of users play this mode, and from that , only the 5% -10% of this 40% can actually be around these hours to get to the top. Total maximum i predict only 15% of all users actually care or try it...

 Any other game in the world their ranked is 24/7...but not here...we are too lazy to do it my guess.

so 15% of users,this is not ranked....this is pure garbage

 

is MM randomizing results?

Yes... in the 4 games i managed to make at the real life hours these  special"ppl" chosen, the first battle had 7 autoloaders vs 0! 

at tier 10 ,this is equal to forced defeats, which their MM is specially designed this way so that even bot accounts can have at least 40% winratio.

at randoms i get it...but in ranked?? forced defeats due to the star wars this game lately has become? no fun there...

 

do maps bad design ,wrecks some team chances?

Yes....this game has by far the msot boring skirmish maps, in the industry...no tactic no skill...

their maps are heavily one sided ,most of them, and they favour some specifications. e,g a batchat in Kharkov vs a batchat at Malinovka very different story...

If they really cared for ranked , they would let you choose the tank after you saw the map, is that simple

instead they force you to play the wron tank in the wrong map, due to their random result MM,

Plus, artillery is continuing to get robbed in town maps, forcing to 0 damage as well

IF this game had a developing team this would be solved in seconds...but in WG....

 

is ranked a goldspending fest ?

 Yes... everyone trying their best so that means since a better ammo is around for credits, you will use it. So you can imagine  that Ranked in WoT is not profitable ...

on the other hand is a trap for vict...ehm....excuse me, for "buyers"

 

does this mode catch expectations or deserved  the hype? 

 Definetely not....badly designed, questionable "rewards" non profitable for your account, not even bragging rights since as i explained probably ranked is among 10% of the users in servers...

this is by far the msot lazy developing team around...

 

should i avoid it, Ranked battles? do i waste my time?

Categorically YES...dont even bother...

I don't know how I feel about this change, on one hand its nice to have the freedom to choose when to play among more hours, on the other hand it will basically force players to spend even more time on ranked if they want the rewards.

Because they have less ranked hours a day. They used to have 3 hours weekdays and 4 hours weekends, now it also got extended and is 5 hours weekdays and 6 hours weekends.

extending time? hmmm

actually that so called 'ranked' mode, doesn't have as much to do with skill as it has with time. getting chevrons over time is easier then loosing them, thanks to top free in loosing team getting, vs last free in winning not loosing. if u win avarage of 50%, u will still get there, sooner or later, so, to have high rank, u can just grind mindlessly, possible even with nonexistant bot app, and u will probably rank up. on other hand, avarage players can invest time to chase those best, and just spend more time, to get high score. now that time window has been widened, from 4h to 6h. i personally have no idea who asked for it, but wot is full of idiots. for most players, it will be equeal to 2h more grind each day to stay in the same spot. thats so Edited  i dont rly know what to say more. 6h daily grind, month long, and you call it ranked? yea, top players have rly high rank in stiupidity and nolife. how the hell is it even possible to brake something as easy to do as ranked battles?

Extend the time, but don't solve others problems - that's a """GREAT""" idea.
