WARGAMING TELL ME HOW IT CAN BE EVEN?!?!?!?! I have made more damage in a close combat, and BC done a lot lower damage. TELL ME you [edited].

 

Looks ridiculuous indeed. Maybe bat killed arty which gives bonus xp, but still looks like a joke to me.

FIX your Ranked battles. Ban Chieftain(T95/....), ob907, Obj 260 etc.

I said it in the other ranked seasons as well. If you want Ranked battles to be ranked battles, Only allow tech tree tanks. No premium or special tanks. That would be fair for everyone....

Even better, Develop a special Tier 10 Main battle tank for ranked battles and only allow that one... Then you'll have a Ranked season based on skill only, and the mm should be even easier to manage...

Just my 2 cents... The Chieftain plays itself, 907 bounces more shots than IS7.... hell, even 430U bounces more shots than IS7, but the 430U is slower than the 907. Haven't really seen those T22's tho...I think I've seen 2...

Chevrons are a proper BALL ache, as you get to tier 11, then drop to 7 again... then 9 then 6 again... have to be really lucky to get to 15, or to have the chieftain or the 907, they make it sooo much easier.

Question: 

i see some players to keep playing Ranked even after reaching 15° rank of 1st Division. There are some rewards afterwards or these are just crazy people? (i can understand that if you play enough well, you can rise the efficiency, but cmon, that's so risky to me).

I got 15 special battles for my promotion, so i use those to increase my overall performance then I will stop. better players probably got even more bonus battles....

No offense, but I doubt that a player with your skill level will get very far in ranked no matter what tanks you or the others play. if you drop from t11 to 7 you are just not up for the challenge as you lack the consistency needed

It's not only about consistency, also about luck a lot of times. I got like 9 lost battles in a row, lost 4 chevrons, because what can you do when you go to the hill on Prohorovka and 3x 907 yolo you at the start of the battle, and with your BatChat you can't flank them, cause it's 907 and the traverse speed is crazy, you can't pen their front cause ofc it's 907. Your teammates which were behind you decided to run away seeing their rush instead of fighting and helping you...

 

And then you get the battles where enemy team gets 2x 279, and to balance it my team gets E100 and Maus...

 

With the amount of turbo battles ending up in 3min with one team winnig 15:0 or 15:1, it's very often a lottery. Unless you have 279, like yourself, in which case when being in loosing team in such battles you can retain chevron just from the bounced shots...

consistency? I was 1st in a lot of lost battles... second in a lot, but when you're not 5th or more, you just lose the chevrons. People go one side and forget about the purpose of having a map. all about damage and not being destroyed. I did not say I lost all chevrons in a row from 11 to 7. but it got me back through several battles in which you struggle carrying the team sometimes and still lose. was second with 5500 damage and 3500 blocked in an IS7, and a 907 was first with 3400 damage... and guess what... 2900 blocked and 2000 assisted. 907 can yolo without a risk in most cases. Ranked depends on team as well, believe it or not. I like playing the IS7 in ranked but play others as well. But when you get shot from all sides no matter where you go, because everyone stays behind you and not caring about flanks and stuff, you can't do sht. you get to the top of your team, because you play right, but still lose, and if someone with better view range or dps who you protect with the heavy is near you, will get more EP because of their tank's advantage, which it sums as you being lower in the bracket, which means you won't get a chevron. it will get retained. Then sometimes you're just getting smashed because of a yolo idiot with an autoloader shooting your remaining hp in 8-10 seconds with the 'golden' shells and takes you out in 3 minutes. then, you pray for the team to win or just lose the chevron.

Luck is everywhere. But OP tanks make it one-sided.

Having the same type of tank will show the skills, not driving the OP ones from the campaign, which CLANS WON, not individuals. Remember that.

 

Edit: A lot of players prefer to run away for the 2 extra shots than help you win the flank... fact.

I don't agree with the idea of everybody fighting in the same tank, it would be boring asf. But I agree that OP reward tanks give huge advantage to people who have them, and that this grind is a little too difficult for majority of the players, it could be easily solved though with some tweaks of the system and made more enjoyable for everybody.

12 lost battles, 4 victories today, I still managed to be +5 chevrons in total, but the grind required is just retarded. MM is completely broken, on Malinovka enemy got 279, 2x Chieftains and Super Conq, we got 2x 277, 705A and 50B, let's try to win the hill... Another battle enemy got 3x 907, we got 2 BatChats and Progetto, in the city map. Tell me it's related to your own skill in any way...

 

I was super excited for the Ranked Battles this year, but it's broken beyond the belief.

268 is what's called Heavy Destroyer.

Block Quote

Role actions:

  • Dealing damage to vehicles in the view range (upon own spotting)
  • Blocking damage and trading off HP

 

He was probably sniping from the back with others spotting for him, only Grille and Strv are such TDs which are meant to sit in the bush in the back, all the others should fight in front spotting for themselves.

 

This role XP is broken too, for instance it's encouraging SPGs to focus only on one target, as role XP is only for stun assisting damage, tracking doesn't count for that, so if you change targets with each shot to help your teammates deal with different tanks, they're all using med kits, stun is gone and you can forget about role XP...

Did the one giving it that role confuse it with the v4? :D

FV4005 and AMX 50B are in that same category... "Blocking damage and trading off HP" :teethhappy:

I got a question regarding bonus battles. Do they reset every day like the normal 2x or just once for each league? Because I reached Division 3 yesterday and only had them once.

No, they don't reset. If for instance you got 5 bonus battles, then you have 5 bonus battles with restriction that it can be only applied once a day on each tank. So if you play with 1 tank you can use it in 5 days, or if you play with many tanks you can use all 5 of them in 1 day. Then if you reach Division 2 you will get another set of bonus battles based on your performance in Division 3.

It became much easier to get chevrons since the first few days.  I guess the superunicorns reached their "sprinter" goals, qualified in their gold/silver/bronze leagues, and now they are off. A lot easier to perform well, so I managed to qualify for divison 3, and feel unstoppable. I probably play better too, mostly in terms of positioning (more defensive). Good game mode, can learn a lot.
