Actually like the system now far more than on previous ones. Seems to be based on more skill than grinding.

 

And arties getting punished, well I say. Finally. This should have been in the game since the start.

 

And a t9 tank reward in the end of the year. Wont say no to that.

Watched the video.

 

I agree with you the proposed changes seem to give each vehicle more points for doing what it should be doing. I wonder if WG have balanced that correctly first time round?

 

The fact that arty will be punished for stunning allies is excellent news.

Seems nice... the previous xp calculations basically meant that unless you played a tank that can brawl and stay within 100 m of as many enemy tanks as possible you could just go [edited]yourself despite actually being useful and playing said tank properly by spotting, flanking, decapping... So hopefully now there will be greater variety in tanks than supercanceror/277/5a/268v4/430/907/is7/taip5.

 

Can you imagine being able to play ranked in stuff like rhm cancerwagn or leopard? :D

I hope that the role xp is only additional, because there are enough cases you will need to step out of the traditional role of your tank and for example spot for the few remaining allies in your (super)heavy tank in order to win. It's just an example.

 

3:21 This means that you could be labeled by allies, after they just move into the marking circle of an artillery player to deny them damage. It happens more then once that player deny artillery players or other players damage by face-hugging etc in a situation that it doesn't make any sense to do so, because the vehicle you fight in, for example has no armor and the enemy can damage you, face-hugging or not.

 

4:00 This doesn't seem that fair, as it will be even harder to moderate players to get higher up. It is only better for the best of the best, that as far as I've seen in the past, don't have that much trouble going through stages of missions etc.

 

Sucks that it's starting soon.. I don't have any tier 10 yet..

Probably not balanced right away, but if they use ranked as a testbed and bring it after balancing to randoms, Im fine with it. As long as its not worse as in the previous ranked seasons.

 

I wonder, will the t9 be the same t9 tank as for frontline. That would be a punch to the gut for people who grind the frontline for it.

It's ranked, moderate players shouldn't get high up. That's the core point of that mode. What would be the point if everyone would get every reward?

Last time I played mostly with Cent AX and Fatton and landed in silver league ;)

 

Also, will you get punished for doing what 'your vehicle class is not supposed to'? For example - farming damage in LT?

Maus still blocks plenty. And blocking is only one of the ways that you can get extra xp.

Well, reworking the exp allocation is long overdue but will have to wait and see if this creates less or more strange results.

 

Sad to see friendly fire removed, another step of dumbing down the game.  Although I can see it resulting in lots of complaints when everyone is fighting over the one chokepoint unlike Frontlines where players are generally more spread out.

 

I don't like the arty getting punished for stunning friendlies, why should I get punished if I fired a shell with a 3 second flight time after marking my target and some light tank driver decides to go for a ram kill.  A small improvement would be that if you marked a target then only friendlies already inside the splash radius count for team damage penalties.

With all the goldspam it will make it seem like you don't use your armor well, but it's just the enemy spamming gold... pretty lame

You're right on that, but it seems like it's just a big gold-spam-grind.

I think it's a good thing. I think that it will take toxicity more out of the game, or at least the toxicity won't cost the team hp that could be useful to win later on.

I've had this problem more then once in the past and people blame you for hitting them, while you do exactly as WG want you to: mark the area where you are going to fire so allies can stay away.. I think players who yolo in should get punished harder for this, as it's always the arty player who gets punished and it's not always clear who's fault it is.. at least the automated team-damage system doesn't see it..

Today I lost half my hp in my light at the end of a battle, because I flanked an arty and I wanted to keep safe. Both remaining arties from my team stunned or team damaged me, without marking the area.. besides that, I had nowhere else I could go.

Gold spam wont help a bad player to perform a lot better. It does help some amount, but far less than you seem to think.

I've been trying the 12k combined for HT15/3 and I'm getting close.  My main downfall is failing to do damage.  If I could get my damage done up to my blocked then I would have completed it a couple of times.

I don't think toxic people deserve to win.

 

But blocking friendly shots won't be conductive to winning either so...

Every shot you block is out of your teammate taking a shot and possibly taking damage.

You can block reliably even gold ammo if you are any good in this game. Unless you literally play some moving box with a lot weakspots so that even sidescraping doesn't help.

Yeah, but I knew I was going for a sub-optimal choice. Still, it's a tier X and I'll at least give it a try.

Nowdays, problem is not gold ammo as it`s HESH ammo or HE ammo form tanks like FV 4005, FV 183 and Type 5!
