First of all this game mode should be available for every tier if you want people to play it.

Secondly the rewards suck 750 bonds for 100 ppl, 2250 for 54 and 4750 for 44 ???

What is this like 0.0001% of the game population ?

You end up playing a whole month 5 hours every day so in the end you can buy one stupid equipment that boost just one of your tanks by 1% ??

 

Not only that but most people spend massive amounts of credits for consumables and all the gold spam.

Is it really worth it ? I personally play it because i like playing with and against skilled players but otherwise - no the rewards are not worth it at all.

But i want to see what other people think. Any ideas on how to changed it also welcomed.

For the first one i'm split 50/50. I myself think ranked should be tiers 6 to 10, but for the second one you're right - it's not rewarding at all.

In Hearthstone you get the rarest of items (cards) for being good in ranked, in WoT you get Fire Extinguishers :trollface:

I think each week should have a different tier in ranked battles. That way you still have enough population in the game mode for it to work, but it would be less boring and less of an Obj 907 festival.

 

The rewards in bonds are OK, but either limit premium ammo or slightly boost credit rewards as currently it is either a huge credit sink or a huge source of frustration of everyone slinging premium at you while you have to hold back to run positive.

 

Maybe if I was better then I would feel differently about ranked battles, but for me they are currently mostly a very un-fun way how to train some of my t10 crews.

One might consider making RB available on some other tier level, but definitely not ALL tiers. And it's not that the rewards are too low, just the current mode requiring way too much effort and/or luck (not skill!) to get into ranks, and the leaderboard requirements being silly on top (just promoting vehicle rank grinds)

a golden epic a month is a fart in the wind compared to constant arena reward if you are *really* skilled.

I think instead of a separate ranked mode, there should be a ranking system in random battles which will also save us from XVM.

Only tier ten - fail.
Only rewards nolifers - fail.
Rewards are laughable - fail.

Why they decided to introduce the gamemode like that is beyond me. But it shows one more time that they really suck at... everything... these days?

Another mode gear towards the 2% of all the players. Not only because of the tanks required, the money, but especially the time. Can't spend every evening playing 5 hours? Well tough luck.

0,0001% of the playerbase, and not even the best ones, just the best nolifers.

Who's talking about epics, when you can have gold legendaries? :D 

I was rank 2 when I got bored with HS. Wild unplayable due to boom and such and standard was always the same three decks over and over.

Some already complain (rightfully so) that ranked is rigged because of the 907 and you would like a tier VIII ranked where the best tanks are premium and not on sale?

 

Not serious :)

Bring on tier 8 ranked!! :izmena:

 

Oh those lineups will be glorious, only Defenders, Patriots, Skorpion G's and occasional Lorraine.

Tier 8 ranked would be interesting. It would probably be full of premiums at the start but due to the style of play I would imagine it would get quite diverse over time. The lights would stand far more chance than they do in t10, even some of the standard heavies, OHO's VK's... even the 112's and IS6's might make an appearance. The t44/100 would be pretty good in t8 only.

 

Once the t9's and t10s are removed from the equation a lot more t8s would be a viable choice.

Don't allow premium and reward tanks in ranked, only the standard one, if this is a place to show your skill you should do it with the tanks anyone can get,

Meta has changed a million times since :P

 

There's a total of 5 adventures and 7 expansions now and they balance the cards very fast. There's like 20 different meta decks now and hundreds of tier 2's :P

 

( I quit too when they released GvG, that set was crapfor the game, WoG was the jesus resurrector for the game tho^^

Tier 8 Ranked Battle sounds awesome. Playing with normal match-making premium tanks, so you won't get into tier 10 battles, would be good for credit grind. I wouldn't even care about the bonds or the ranking, just the credit grind.

(off-topic, anyone here playing StarCraft 1 or StarCraft Remastered multiplayer? I am looking for active players to play 1v1 with)

I like this idea very much.

 

People also don't seem to want all tiers but tier 6+.

What about tier 7 and 9 ? I personally think tier 9 is the most balanced of all and it would be fun to see what tanks are played.

 

Also one more thing - add better rewards for all players even the lower ranked ones.

Something like 500 gold for everyone that played at least 10 games every league won't make WG broke.

This would encourage more people to come and make it more competitive.
