Went to the Vehicle Rankings today and noticed my Obj. 430 was missing despite most definitely having played more than 50 games in it in March. Turns out, none of the new tanks introduced after T10 lights were added to the rankings (such as 268 4, S. Conq, Badger...) and old tanks were never removed. Seems like WG has left it to rot, after having introduced it with much fanfare.

Sounds like a very wargaming thing to do, hype something up for a few months and then let it die. Interesting seeing that I was the 12th best T28 HTC player according to how those rankings work

I quite liked it, gun traverse was good and the gun itself is decent. Also armour is good if you have some cover to hide one tumor and angle the over one

​TBF and TBH when I first got it I was quite impressed, but then got very bored as its too slow and its armour only really works when top tier vs 1 key players.  but it was free credits and a nice garage slot :teethhappy:

In fact, it'd be quite fantastic if it didn't see T9 games

 

Really enjoy it too, most of all the looks of it, it's really pretty!

Seems like they indeed abandoned the Hall of Fame.

There's nowhere here in the forums where you can post bugs or opinions on that.

I'm also missing my new tanks like OBJ 430 U for example.

Hall of Fame seems still pretty bugged... it does say "beta" on it, which in Wargaming lingo means "barely working if at all".

 

I was 19th with MT-25 last month, with pretty potato stats... kind of made me wonder if the lists are accurate at all.

Hall of Fame is/was complete crap anyway. As the monthly rankings only included people with 50+ games it completely depended on tank popularity that month at what rank you'd end up, so ranks are pretty useless. And the whole rating has the same fundamental flaw as any other rating: it fails to adjust to balancing changes. Very obvious if you look at arty as pre 9.18 you got way less assist damage, so results before the rework are less relevant compared to results with stun mechanics.

 

Now if they'd make the rankings based on patch version instead of monthly they might be actually relevant.

 

Not to mention that you can't even get a complete overview of your vehicles, only a more or less random collection of six vehicles, anything else you have to look up manually one by one.

One could surmise , that quite possibly, the person who wrote that bit of code , could well have decided move on and make his fortune in the little known but highly lucrative and some say dangerous ,field of potato herding , out in the suburbs and roaming hills of Vladivostock. 

The replacement coder(s) of course who dont actually play the game, only add to it,  have never seen the feature, hence the current impasse and continued beta status.

 

Just a thought at lunchtime whilst my  blood sugar is low.

now hang on.

 

We all checked it when it first came out and discussed our new found epeen levels. it's only since we've realised it's pointless that we haven't bothered checking anymore

It's just WG's idea to bring features found on 3rd party websites into the game. Like how WG added minimap stuff from XVM earlier... they just copied the features, so it actually worked.

 

Too bad WG is so crap at making UIs, Hall of Fame is a bit botched.

 

WG only needed to add "recent two week" or "last month" checkboxes into the game statistics' "Vehicles" tab, which you could use to show recent stats. But no, lets design a new portal and half-[edited]that.
