Now that Ranked Battles are returning, I was wondering what the forum preferes.

Ranked Battles or Frontline?

 

Personally I prefer Frontline, but that because I have no business playing Ranked Battles with my current tank setup.

What about neither?

I can only do either mode for a short while before I start to get bored with it.

I think they're a kinda different thing. Both are fun in their own way.

Never played ranked (lack of tier X tanks), but I'd imagine a salty premium-ammo-spamfest is less fun than a somewhat balanced meta with a multitude of viable tanks that have no chance in randoms.

Also, I really enjoyed how the battle reserves and progressive gameplay felt completely different than playing pubs, so that'll be another point for FL.

Ranked is like skilled based MM (sort of, a lot of noobs can still get up the ladder easy with the recent changes). I can get in rewards easy, that's why I played it but never stressed myself too much over it. 

Frontline gets boring imho, but is useful for credits and grinding stock tier 8 tanks.

 

The 2nd one can be a bit more enjoying, but both have no future in the current form. Frontline can be successful with some tweaks, the other one is just annoying on the long run.

I think you should include randoms in your poll, as that is the mode I prefer.

I voted Ranked because free gold... :sceptic: I'm getting better by the days and if all goes well I might end up in League 1. Fingers crossed. :playing:

I have no playable TX, so ranked means nothing to me

 

id probably try it if I had a crew for the TX I own, but I don't so it sits there gathering dust until one day in the far future I have a crew for it

Never tried ranked.

 

Frontline was good to the point we had no tier spread, but players quickly learned the best areas and camped. I was glad when I earned the bonds, as I would never have to play it again. Well, unless the offer more bonds ;)

Ranked and it's rewarding system is just one big "meh". Tried, both seasons, didn't enjoyed myself. I'm also firm believer that the Improved Equipment and all the other bells and whistles, have no played in Randoms.

Frontline's only advantage was that it fixed the MM of Tier 8s. Specially Premium vehicles. With and without the Preferred Matchmaking.

True - I really enjoyed playing my CDC and 50t in Frontlines - in randoms they are just a hindrance to your team in most cases

Well I used frontline to get my 3 T8 Chinese tanks into a better state, since they still needed some modules and so forth.

 

I can't really see the point of ranked as it is more or less just a credit sink, nor do I have T10 tanks.

Frontline would be great if there were enough maps. Cant play the same map over and over... Also frontline needs to remove the corridors, its pretty much 10v10 and not 30v30...

Wasn't it mentioned somewhere that they are working on a second Frontline map?

10 v 10 is good, battles become less about lemming pushes and more about winning your individual battles and on the current map all the sectors do link pretty easily giving you plenty of tactical options.

 

---------------------

 

Ranked just accentuates the issues with tier 10 balance, OP tanks, maps not suited to tier 10s, broken TDs etc. 

 

Frontline IMO gave same skill back into the game because the map design was a lot better, it just needs more maps.

Sorry but if you want to vote you have to choose between Ranked or Frontline.

Its a one or the other, the 3th option is not to vote.

Frontline would be MUCH better if they got rid of that god-awful spy plane nonsense.

 

Ranked mode is a joke, it's full of absolutely terrible players with all of them competiting to killsteal from each other, with incessant 'gold' spam accompanying this, I'm not sure what WG were trying to acheive with the gamemode, but it's bloody awful from a gameplay perspective tbh.
