Maps feel very small with 15 v 15 tier 10 tanks. Makes both teams get dug in and slaughter anything that moves. Those who try to push are slaughtered until the campiest tanks are left (these players get the chevrons). Perhaps make ranked battles have less than a full team allowing for more map freedom.

Great. Server is busy and impossible to enter. Maybe you use both servers for ranked battles?

Dont make ranked /(f*@*/d) battles if servers cant handle it... MAYBE EU3??? Oh, no 2 is enough! Yeah, sure, when servers die in 2nd day, and the first was every time lagging like hell... CW? servers die or cw system fail. Ranked battles? Servers allways die in first days,,, Wot 1.0? We will need bullet proof armor because our pc's will explode from it???

Since you asked, extend the season for as long as EU1 was down.

 

(I don't quite understand why Ranked is only available on EU1 to begin with; but that's besides the point.)

The first "official" ranked season, ironically even more F.U.C.K.E.D. up than the "BETA" seasons. Couldn't even connect to EU1 to play ranked battles. It's not like WG makes billions, god forbid they'd invest some of that into server stability.

 

Oh well....

Oh, great. finally logged in... And guess what? (the 5-15 battles wasnt enough alone add some server crash to it in bonus)
Losed the rank because of the incompetent server (or staff? come on WARNING POINT, because if someone tell the truth wg just give warning...instead of think about how to fix the problem.)
Everything can be wrong but wg never... its always the player, the internet connection, the mods, the pc, the universe,the Yeti, bla bla bla...

Forgot to feed your hamsters today, WG?... :trollface:

 

Honestly... how old are the current servers? It's 2018, why can't a multi-million-dollar company at least have stable servers under load? :facepalm:

It seems not so clever to load all ranked players at a small time window on a single server.

Ranked battles are totally disappointing and demoralizing, how come i get less XP than other just because i got kill??? look at this photo, the first tank i highlighted only landed about two shots his total dmg was 833, and he made it into the top 10, so basically he kill one tank shot another, and then waited for the match to finish, as a result, he made it into the top 10. he got rewarded for camping and not for his superiors skills, i would say this i so FAIR, THANKS WARGAMING FOR REWARDING CAMPING, i hope to some answers

Wg probaly didnt understand complex concepts like:  logical thinking, stable servers, fixing mm, broken op tanks etc.
I cant even understand, how can people  work for a company like this. Did they really get payment or they are starving, when the board of directors of  company  sunbathe on Hawaii...

I decided to give it a try with an open mind but I got to say that I'm already disappointed and not sure if I should continue or not. The main problem is the credits. It's impossible for average players without a premium account to participate without losing massive amounts of credits. Every single battle is just gold spam, gold spam, gold spam. I have to save my credits for new tier 10 tanks to buy, I can't waste them on gold ammo and tier 10 repair costs. In my opinion, since this game mode is about skill, all players should be allowed to participate on equal grounds, not some being forced to fire standard rounds and use standard consumables while others even use premium ammo against arty.

 

Suggestion: Disable credit earnings/losses in ranked battles. Repair and refill the tanks for free so that players go +/- 0 credits after each round.

 

And please, change the garage slots into 300 gold.

I think it is very unfair, the Ranked Battled are taking place at the exact same times I am at work. I think it would be much fairer if they were available to play 24/7 as I am sure I am not the only one with this problem. This severely limits me as sometimes I have to work 7 days a week.

Is it possible to add platoon's into the ranked gamemode? I always tought it was disabled because ranked focusses on individual performance but I just got a reply from support that syncing (pressing battle button at the same time to get into the same game) is allowed. This would give some players a semi reliable advantage as they would be able to coordinate with teammates similar to a platoon but less reliable.

 

support

 So, this practice is neither punishable, nor endorsed.

Ranked battles season 1.

 

my EXP  today with ranked  battles it's very though. :( 2 times teamkilled by a friendly player, and often in the heat of battle your team mate decide you to push infront of enemy tanks like e100 of the type 5 heavy and when you die ,they use your wreck to hide that happens a lot in the rank battle.

 

And the worst thing is that you can see on the score board, that team mates that have caused you to die gets higher exp, even the person who has team killed you, very sad face. :(

 

IS 7 tank feels like a IS 6 in tier 10 battle only but you really feel it in ranked this days. 

All day long you get shot with snap shoots with gold ammo and then your armor is not so great.

If you try to fight back it is very difficult to hit the enemy ad mid range and long range.

with only 303 pen it is a miracle if you can penetrate something from the front, like, the Maus, Type 5 heavy, Object 268 version 4.

 

ad close range then you have the panic feeling you are the  IS 6  in a tier 10 battle. for example super Conqueror can use that amazing gun deprision to shoot upper hull plate into the driver hatch and then you feel the pain really hard :( sad face.

 

fight against heavy armor tanks your best bet is to shoot and hope you will have some damage made before the fight is over.

 

But if you win in the IS 7, then it's the best thing in the game because  you have to research some time on www.tanksgg.com what the weak points of the enemy tanks are. 303 pen is not a lot. other tanks wit 340 pen just shoot at you and don't have second thoughts

 about it. 

 

fighting in the IS 7 can be frustrating in ranked, play something friendly instead , object 140 but even then if the 907 comes around the corner is it like fighting a doomsday machine, but object 140 have the speed and the pen to fight back. happy face :)

Cancer, absolute cancer.
​Can't stand this game mode, but I want the bonds for equipment to stay competitive.
​Armour has no value, a hull-down Centurion AX can't withstand heat spam, same goes for my Russian meds and German super-heavies. 

Premium ammo should've been disabled.

 

I don't know, can't say much more really, in my opinion, your success depends how willing you are to spend your credits.
I hate it.
