Hi guys,

I find that unless I am really grinding a tank hard.

Then even trying to get onto the hall of fame is really difficult.

(I have actually managed to get into the top 10 once with it)

 

Obviously it is a fairly new part of the game, & things will change.

Yes, it makes sense to reset it every so often to give players a fresh start.

However, at the moment it is reseting to often, for many tanks that I like to play casually, to get the relevant number of battles.

 

I think a quarterly reset (i.e, every three months) would make much more sense.

I think a reset every two months, would be a little to short as well.

What do you guys think?

 

Yes at the moment, if you are reasonably skilled, you can grind a tank hard & fairly easily be able to get into the top 50.

But the reality is, that you are just in a race against other players to get 50 battles in a tank at the moment!

 

The ability to get into the top 50 players, would be so much more meaningful, if we had a larger cross section of players able to casually get into the mix.

 

Being in the top 100, top 50 or top 10, would mean much more, if you were still there in the last week before a reset!

This is why I think a reset every 3 months would make a lot more sense.

Yes you could still race to get your screenshot if that is what you want?

But I would like to compare more tanks than just the 4 or 5, that ever seem to get past the 50 battle threshold!

 

What do you guys think?

 

Cheers!

You are right. I think I'm 3rd place in a tank at the present time but I'm not playing another 30 more battles to get a position and by then it certainly won't be 3rd place lol.

I couldn't care less.

The only time when I took a look there was when bots managed to make it to the top of several lists. That looked funny.

It's only 50 battles for each tank, 

I don't think it's that big of a deal.

Obvious observation.
If people do not care?
It is not valued in it's current form!
(Could that be  because people see the flaws is the system at the moment?)

Thank you for the replies though!

Cheers!

The hall of fame nonsense is utter, meaningless tripe. As usual the UI is absolute rubbish. It's counter-intuitive and nothing whatsoever is explained. "X number of battles to enter the stats" or whatever - why have I not fought enough battles despite having fought over 200 battles in my main tanks?

I don't use it, it's unintelligible, most of my tanks don't appear on it, some screens won't load or take ages to load. There is virtually nothing worthwhile about its introduction to the game. And I don't like it.

You need 50 battles in one month to appear in the rating, has nothing to do with overall battles. Don't recognize the other problems you have with it.

I think the algorithm for it is fairly decent, it is just that the UI is so ..... bad.

It seems pretty pointless in it's current form.
The only way it may work for people at the moment, is if a few players want to compete against each other.
50 battles in a month!
Not really worth the effort in my opinion as it is right now.
I took a few screenshots when I got a top 10 position.
But have realised how utterly worthless it is since then!

If someone decides to play 50 battles on the 1st day of the month!
Then he will probably get into the top 3 positions on the board regardless of skill!
Pretty pointless!

 

Though I do think that the original idea probably makes sense.

Right now it is pointless!

If it's a hall of fame, it should be all-time stats. It should be clearly explained what everything means and why it's relevant to the typical player. WG simply does not do user interfaces - their Missions/Events sections prove that.

I understand that an all time stat would make sense.
However I also see that resetting it every so often gives people something to play for.
So several players from FAME or other top clans occupy the top spots immediately giving no one else a Chance.

There is no point in WG producing that.
It's only value can possibly be if they reset it every so often, to give the lesser players a challenge.
Or force the reset for the best, that got a bit of lucky rng in a few games compared to their piers!
50 games in a month is just not gonna work.

It has to work as a little bit of a mini game, or you may as well just look at who got the best rating on whatever server every month.
It makes no sense in any other way.
If that makes sense?

I just want things to make some sense, that is all, & give some feedback.

If your Flacid or just past it? 

This is no place to air it!

This is WOT not WOP, at least from my point of view...

 

You brought that up...

Or maybe you didn't...

What is it good for? I mean there is already the ranked mode which is crapbut you can earn stuff if you progress. Why is there a hall of fame, why is it even called hall of fame if there is no fame in getting on it.

But i agree with you, its not a hall of fame if it gets reset every month it shouldn't get reset at all, whoever manages to get on it should stay until someone pushes him down from the list.

Rather give option to look some longer timelines than a month. Like one year or 6 months.

I agree with the OP. If it is going to be there, then it has to be meaningful. Those saying that they couldn't care less what it is are proving the OP's point exactly.

 

I don't play any tank 50 times in a month. If I do hammer a tank for even a short while, it will be for PMs, or to grind something while I have Personal Reserves, or some free Premium time- none of which lasts over the month.

 

I haven't looked at it since I realised how it worked- and the lousy UI meant that this took a while.

Since the revamp of Hall of Fame I never look at it, the initial description was promising far more than it delivers. But if anybody wants a fully featured app in the old school style of 'Hall of Fame', easy to study personal stats, clan stats, vehicle stats etc., then I recommend 'WOT Assistant'.
