It looks like WG found a way to cover the epic fail that is ranked season 2....

 

From the official site and rules: https://worldoftanks...s-2beta-season/

 

 

Now people with 6 points(including me) are in bronze league.... :facepalm:

I was checking out the ranked leaderboards as well, and was already happy to see what a total failure the second season of ranked was. Then I saw myself in league two with a mere 7 points after 2/3 of the season done. I was dissapointed to see so many people being in the league 1 2 and 3.

 

Now I know why. WG is secretly trying to sneak in some changes so the second season does not look like the absolute and total failure it was.

 

Classic Wargaming.... *inhales deeply, then slowly exhales* ... classic Wargaming.

 

PS: Can anyone be bothered to come up with the actual rankings if the initial rules would still be applied?

E1: OK did it myself now. Instead of the 364 people who magically made it into league 1 over night, in reality only 77 would be there. That is not even 10% of the players who got rank one last season.

"Ranked, a story about great success!" - Someone should write a book.

 

E2: Remember Fukushima, that powerplant thingy? Fun fact: The Japanese governement did basically the same thing there. There are some international rules about how much radiation a human body can handle without any (short and) longterm issues. That would have meant millions people would have been contaminated after that power plant went down. Instead the Japanese governement just increased the value by a factor x (and that factor x was A LOT). Suddenly instead of millions only a couple of thousand of people were contaminated. Another way to make a problem go away.

haha,  WG caught out by the low player counts.  They'll struggle to sell this one as a success.

Checked the rankings yesterday and with 8 points and position 600-something I wasn't in any league. League 3 ended at rank 400-something.

Today I check again and I'm in league 2. I guess they realized nobody was playing this enough so they lowered or removed the points requirement.

Also I just scrolled through through the leaderboards a bit and its funny how even looking at them for more than 2 minutes reveal how little skill is involoved in that mode.

 

I mean if have something like 53% Chevron rate. Thats respectable, and I guess if I would tryhard and wouldnt just leave games on stupid maps (Paris, Pilzen, Windstorm, Erlenberg) I might get it up to 60& what then would be a display of being very skillfull. I have 7 points as of now.

 

Now I scrolled up some positions, something like 150 places. There are people way higher than me with a wooping 33% gainrate. They played more than twice as many battles as I did got 9 points more than me for that hence are ranked above me on the leaderboards even though they are obviously way worse of a player than I am. And all that is possible how?

 

Ah JIIIIIIIZZZZZZZZZZ.... Because, who would have thought, ranked has nothing to do with skill but is only about grinding and lucky streaks.

So that means that i could have made it in the league easily, but i decided to not do it since it wasnt worth the effort, and now they lower the bar after the fact. [edited]off WG.

 

So they basicly make people decidd not to participate on false conditions, then change the rules and make those people who could habe easily done it miss out on valuable bonds. And none of this is communicated at all? 

 

How the hell is this acceptable?  Conway, phelan, pls talk WG out of this crap.

I have a lousy 38.5% chevron rate :great:  (now, this is also my fault, and not WG's).

 

But I've seen players with a much much better winrate than mine with the same lousy chevron gain rates. Ranked battles are a lot of fun even for better players I guess. :honoring:

Pretty much that. Gotta love WG's well thought plans sometimes.

They should compensate every single player who dared to click than ranked battle button at least once with the full rewards of league 1. That would be a funny move. I would love to see the faces of all the players who invested so much time in that ebola mode.

They can change back the point system before they need to give out the bonds. :trollface:

I didn't commit to play in 2nd week because I lacked credits for the stupid mode and I thought I wouldn't qualify for any league anyway...now it seems that if only I got to rank 3 in 2nd week I'd be in bronze league? Funny WG, very funny.

But would you really want to play this "mode" that much? I mean can you endure so much mental pain? Also did you consider that more than just you will now try to do the same. And since the rules seem to change over night, without any warning, and Wargaming can do whatever the f*** they want, what makes you think that they would magically change them back after the season ended?

 

I would not even consider doing that.

My plan is rank 2 on this week again and save my nerves. I guess a lot of players did the same (rank2-3 and quit) for easy bonds.

This week is the last one. We got time.

Last week my ranked experience was this: i played 4-5 battles in Kranwagen and FV183, because i just bought them and i wanted to retrain the crew back to 100%. And ranked looks like the perfect place to do that because i do not care about it anymore.

And today i see that with my 4 points from the first week + 2 points from yesterday = i am in bronze league... Too eazy:child:

You got the skills, you could make it. I could definitely not.

This is disgusting indeed. You are not the only one who decided it is not worth putting the effort in.

Nope. Going to go for rank 3 like the first 2 weeks. Tried going for rank 4 in the first week, it is not worth it for me even with the leaderboard changed.

 

Last week had a losing streak of 7 games where I was top on XP 6 of them. Was trying to get 1st chevron at rank 1, gained nothing, only lost my sanity, too much luck involved in this grindfest sometimes. Way too easy to drop the ranks and the grind tor ranks 4 and 5 are too time consuming and credit eating.

I dont think you can see that Ranked stuff outside the client. You need to start it yourself to see all the shiny numbers. But maybe someone proofs me wrong.

I started the game at work just to check it, don't know somewhere else where to check the leaderboard.
