Another bug that I found, AMX top of the three missions can be done in ranked, but this months top of the three Object 430U missions can't be. Weird, and stupid, stuff.

Driving Op medium tanks gives you less xp,

it's a balancing factor.

i play the batchat and i use only regual ammo, but yes, so amazing see how many players waste own credit to shooting premium ammo. 90%

i played ranked 10 and i dont want anymore. i dont like this game style.

Well, after playing ranked a few days I made the following observations:

 

Since ranking is what matters:

 

  • heavies and mediums camp no matter what
  • heavies go to medium lines to farm easy damage, which completely screws the team
  • looking at my screens above, more play heavies than the other units combined (so they can bounce shots and farm more damage)
  • everyone is shooting gold to get combat rations (hilarious)
  • the format does not encourage team play, on the contrary, since damage is what matters and the team can be losing, campers will not move because they know they will get their chevron if they do enough damage anyway
  • ranked games are rather meh

I have finally had enough of ranked battles.  I am sure I am not alone as an average player in only doing it to get bonds.  I don't think that these fanciful ideas put about that players want to see how good they are apply to many average players.  We know that the unicums kick our asses and don't need it to be proven.  And you are so right Stohe - the games are selfish and you play to get in the top 5 minimum so that you win or don't lose.  I've really had enough of them now.  I nearly got to level 9 but I was basically lucky in my teams.   Then going back to normal battles with three arty is complete crap.  Normal should be one with occasional two.  I have played since 2011 and if it wasn't for the upcoming update tonight would be my last night.  WG cater for unicums not the average player.  

 

The best alternative game format WG did was the D-Day (I think) model in sandbox.  The map was 9 squares and you captured or defended each square then the final bases.  That was fun

3rd iteration of ranked and they still did not fix what is IMO the fundamental flaw=losing chevrons. Losing chevrons make players camp and play to lose and be among the best losers in fear of losing a chevron if they get caught out actually playing the game, which ruins the gameplay. This could be rectified by implementing a system in which only top 10 of winning team gets chevrons so you can not bot your way through ranks, and nobody loses chevrons, only stays at the same level. Sure, this would mean more chevrons required to rank up, also, reward top players of the winning team more and you get a ranked gamemode in which player skill is also rewarded by the fact that the best players will still rank up much faster and in the end still have much better stats of chevrons per battle than players that ranked purely through volume of games played. This would possibly improve diversity of tanks at high rank levels instead of todays meta of heavies and RU mediums.

Is this really so complicated WG?

Most of your complaints can be fixed by just playing better. A lot of your conclusions are wrong.

 

Though the XP system is weird indeed.

Wow it's my first time I read someone write something correct about the exp system. Otherwise people always claim that the exp system is rigged, manipulativ, wrong, etc. It's my first time that someone just stated that the xp system is "weird" which is indeed what it currently is hahaha.

Premium all the way. Why shoot AP with a 50% chance to pen if you can shoot gold with a 90% chance to pen? Especially if you want to end up in that juicy top 3 for 2 chevrons, or the #1 on the losing team, every shell counts.. It's a credit drain but you get better equipment to be more effective in all future battles.

 

I've found the IS-7 to be one of the most reliable tanks for this. I only lose around 10-15k per battle on average. My ranked loadout is 5 AP, 22 APCR and 3 HE shells lol. APCR usually pre-loaded. Thinking about carrying more HE shells for those annoying reverse sidescrapers. I almost never fire AP unless I know I'm facing a soft target.

 

All in all, if you're careful in your IS-7 and don't die too fast you will almost never lose a chevron. I got up to rank 12 in like 30 battles.

 

I do have a 6 skill crew in mine, that helps. Plus Stalin Guidance System.
