"Starting from 7 February, a season will only have one stage-- now it's just 21 days and a 15-rank ladder to climb. Ranks 5, 10, and 13 will grant you special protection from losing a rank in case of defeat. Rewards have been supercharged, too: reaching Rank 9 will grant you 1500 bonds, with bigger numbers given for higher ranks."

 

Am I reading this wrong or should ranked battles start today? At which time? Or did they fail just to put which year this should happen? Soon ™? Or will WG give more info about ranked battles after those have already started?

Either they forgot about it, or it's set within narrow time limits.

OMG :facepalm:

From 7th February rules for ranked battles are changed, it doesn't mean that new season is starting today.

Who the F cares when the rules change? I would presume before new season starts or like last time, during season...

I'm thinking of joining the ranked mode this time around (I blame bonds missions for this). Is it possible to ace tanks in ranked?

​Actually, this is what it says, word for word -

Ranked Battles Ready for a New Season

The last season of Ranked Battles has been rather successful and engaging, and we’re ready to kick off with a new one—more exciting and fun.

Starting from 7 February, a season will only have one stage— now it’s just 21 days and a 15-rank ladder to climb. Ranks 5, 10, and 13 will grant you special protection from losing a rank in case of defeat. Rewards have been supercharged, too: reaching Rank 9 will grant you 1500 bonds, with bigger numbers given for higher ranks.

 

To me the implication, based on context, is that it starts today, 'Starting from 7 February', it does not thereafter mention that the rules change from that date, it appears that the battles start. If you have other information steering you toward a different interpretation, please share, otherwise stop trying to belittle people who are genuinely reading what, to me, appears clear, it starts today.

​And, if it doesn't start today, WG need to get their act together and write using clear English for once.

If google translate is to believed, russian site clearly says that the battles start some time after patch 9.22 and more information will be available at the later time. So surprise surprise, WG EU sucks. Is it too much to ask for WG to hire 1. ONE! person to actually tell us the same things that WG tells to russian player base at the same time? 

 

Or. WG, just google translate the the russian page for us who don't speak russian. Even that is better than what WG EU  :-D
