I have been looking forward to this ranked season as I missed all the ranked seasons before. Also, I have always wanted one of those shiny badges. Now I finally got my chance to earn one.

 

But I just came across this:

 

Note: once you get a reward for league at the end of the Season, you will have to confirm your rank during the next Seasons.

  • If you stay in the same league by the end of the next Season, you preserve your badge and vehicle style.
  • If you reach another league, your previous badge and vehicle style will be withdrawn and replaced by ones for the new league.
  • If you do not make it to any league, you lose your badge and vehicle style.

This is from the info page die ranked battles. To me it is a huge letdown that I will lose the badge I have world hard for again if I miss the next season. And there are many reason why one could miss a season easily: family, job, health issues etc.

 

WG certainly sims for some kind of long term motivation here. But wouldn't it be better to give ist new badges die each season? Then players still have an investive to do ranked in order to get the beweist shiny stuff. They have the same principle in place already for the Clan Wars badges.  

 

I don't think re-obtaining something you already had earned before is a good way to motivate people. At the same taking stuff away that has already been earned is just cruel. 

 

I personally feel discouraged now knowing that I might just lose the badge again at some point in the future. So I hope WG will revise their strategy and make it similar to CW rewards.

 

What do you guys think?

I couldn't care less about badges.. I see loads of players showing off with them.

  • Beta badges: (not all, but) loads of players who still have no clue how to play after 7-8 years of playing
  • badges for some kind of special/personal missions: they don't have much meaning as there are enough bad players who already have T-55A, 260 etc, while they don't deserve them.
  • Besides all of this: wearing badges will only attract the enemies attention, as they expect you to be good when you have a badge. (not the players who know that some stupid badges don't have much meaning)

 

I'd rather never use any badge and attract free focus on me by enemies.

For 50K a game, the rewards are miserable... they have to think this better.

If too many people played ranked battles players would only whine that the MM in randoms was broken.

Don't bother for "special" badges. They don't provide any benefit, on the contrary they might actually tell the enemy team to focus you first.

Ranked battles is flawed, mostly because first they are not ranked batles since you play across divisions, and then because 50K a game is a strong investment for the rewards provided.

 

If ammo was free for example, I think many of us would take our tier X's for a spin. They also should remove CW reward tanks from ranked, or at least have a handicap on XP for them.

I know. But can you blame a guy for a little vanity?

 

Same is true for the camo style btw. I personally find them appalling. So I don't care about them.

 

Bottom like is though that these kinds of rewards should be permanent if we have to work/Grind that hard for them.

Ranked battles should be renamed as a russian tank battles, because 70+% of enemies is a russian tanks. Interesting, why is that?

But most earned 10+mil the week before in FL (personally I made over 23 mil profit) and got rewards; so wasting 30-50k each game in Ranked really isn't an issue.

Well I've seen a lot Chieftains and S.Conqs about, equal to the 277s and 260s (btw, they are better too). However Meds, yes the 430U is dominant followed by the 907 and you rarely see others

 

But then what do you expect when they are JUST BETTER than other nations?

On the last season people were complaining about the Super Conquerors...I don't think the problem are the tech tree tanks, but the CW rewards.

 

Also the cost it takes, 50K a battle is just too much to be a HP piñata

Why do you use FL to make credits?

You can grind the same or  more credits in randoms.

No I can't. With boosters on I can make 250-450k in every game and that's about 18 mins a game (very accurate stats :teethhappy:) win or lose.

 

AND

 

I can earn ranks for the upcoming T9 "special" tonk.

I'm pretty average at tier X play in ranked but got a net income/loss very close to zero after climbing to rank 15 with ~58% chevron rate (no bonus battles played yet). I don't fire much gold though.

Had 135.7M when I finished FL on sunday, have only played ranked since then, still have 135,7M.

 

So, with rewards from climbing in ranks players having premium account should not lose much credits. It's more profitable than playing tier X in randoms.

You can do the same in randoms, if you are a good player you will have no credit problem, no matter if you play FL or randoms.

You are joking right.... 

 

Tier X's always had profitability problems, even in randoms where Prem spam is much lower.

Well not quite. I can afford to just run Prem account for the FL week then go F2P until the next FL week. I mainly play T9/10 (although just got the wolverine :trollface:) and run food,bonds etc so it's expensive to play. I don't like grinding credits in randoms as it's very boring and clans playing SHs running credit boosters isn't a daily occurrence anymore.

depends, im gaining creds slowly from ranked. mostly due to the cred booster from clan + prem acc (and obviously the rank up rewards)

 

suppose eldrak has cred boosters from clan or so aswell

Not joking and not running boosters. The credit flow comes from the rank up rewards. (If I could be bothered to sell or use some off that extra crapI'd be in the positive.)

The Ranked rewards are fine. Quite good for me.

 

Tons of bonds , prem days , gold , credits and the tier 9 tank im personally after.

 

I ve abused premium consumables (had 1k of each stacked) and a decent amount of gold shells. I ve shot lots of gold shells but never had full gold loadout and always depleted my regular ammo.

 

I ve still managed to make profit with prem acc + personal credit booster plus  the occasional clan credit booster when available.
