Maybe a "R" instead of "B".

It's B from 'Beta' Ranked Season. A badge depending on your league standings (Bronze, Gold , etc)

Means they were stupid enough to first play ranked battles and then actually be good at them up to a point.

It's a marker for arty players who don't use XVM that allows them to focus the right people.

It's a medal for playing too much WoT.

is there a way to turn that off ? It's annoying and I really do not care to see if someone did well in ranked battles or not.

I believe it's optional for the player to display it, not for you to see it, otherwise there'd be no point in awarding people e-peen badges for taking part in ranked battles.

Only those players willing to invest significant time and credits into the mode will have achieved the zen greatness that is 'Ranked Badged'. They clawed their way up from the under-hive that is randoms and proved to the world that they are a cut above the rest - willing to sacrifice their sanity, relationships and in my case a perfectly workable keyboard (until it had it's accident). It is a direct and accurate rating of skill and supreme WoT-skills.

 

No really it is.....

 

Stop laughing at the back there.

Gosh, I didn't realise e-peeners were already making memes. :rolleyes:

 

You've missed out my personal reason, which is that I only have one tier 10 tank and genuinely couldn't be arsed. But well done you, you must be very proud and I'm sure that if we could, we'd put a screenshot of all your bonds and improved equipment on the fridge so that everyone could see them. :child:

I actually didn't get much because I was too busy kissing a cute girl so I missed several days of ranked. it's a hard life

Everyone who placed in the leagues by the end of the season got one.

But it's not displayed by default.

You have to turn it on (it's optional).

It's where you normally activate your personal reserves, in that little window by the user name in the garage screen.

Try to activate a personal reserve.

See that black square with a + on the left side of your nickname? Click on it.

Magic?
