The new season of Ranked battles should be strictly limited to the tech tree tanks. The game would be far more interesting and diversified.

 

No one really enjoys playing against 10 x 279 and 5 x Chieftains on enemy team.

Won't that just mean battles with 9 Objects 430U and 6 Objects 140 all the time? :D

279 is a poor choice for ranked anyway. 5 deg gun dep, craparmour when everyone spams gold. 279's armour is only good vs standard ammo, or vs lower tier.. thats why its so strong in randoms. Chieftain is the best in ranked.

279 is situational but still hard target - look at Clan Wars, you see only 279 and Chieftains and some EBR and Swedish STR TD. The question for me is to have a restriction to the standard tech tree tanks to have a bit more diversified game.

Why not grade tier 10 mediums, heavies and TDs for the job? It's a fairly easy task since they're few or at the least the viable/popular choices are limited. Distinguish them with an XP bonus or chevron bonus and let everyone play whatever they want.

This would be hard to make in practice because WG cannot balance the game. Simple restriction to the standard tech trees is very easy to implement.

Maybe and it would also be an admission of guilt. :)

in fact playing the cws and the advs is quite ridiculous cuz are mainly used 4 vehicles, 279, chieftain, 907 and ebr

 

wow

If they want to make ranked more balanced and varied WG could give everyone a special ranked only version of every tier 10 with a tank locking system in place so you could only play each say 3 times per day.

This is interesting idea, but will WG listen or at least try it for one season? I would probably increase the limit to 5 times per day but that is a small detail.

I personally played only a few battles in last RB season. I reached rank 5 (first set) and I've quit. 

It was ridiculous and more like a joke. 

Only Soviet tanks, SQs and iirc i saw some 279s. 

And only premium spamming, so, skill and armour doesn't mean anything in RBs, juat buy a premium account, spam gold, drive Soviet tanks, and don't give a $hit about how others try to grind.

Agree. Or make it tier 9.

They should just make ranked battles tier 9... It's a more balanced and varied tier and would stop all the whiners.

 

As for the OP... I have chieftain and 907 but I play like crap in them & seem to do much better at ranked in my 140

Tier 9 ranked would be fun - not sure which tanks would be popular but a definitive YES from my side !!! And if people do not have many tier 9 tanks then make them rentals, with max 5x use of each tank per day ...

I like how people forget the 907 and the 260.

 

Even if 279 , Chieftain , 907 and the 260 get banned......

 

... the mm will be filled with hulldown Super Conqs , hulldown IS7s and ofc hordes of 430Us.

The cancer gameplay wont chanmge one bit.

 

Not to mention i dont see how the 279 and 260 are justified for removal since ANYONE can get them...

...plus how the specific ban for Chieftain and 907 will work if the rest of the mediocre CW tanks dont get banned. Ban the 121B the M60 and the rest of the garbage CW tanks ? BIATCH PLZ.

 

Someone plz explain.

 

The solution is to nerff the OP tanks not to call for stupid bans. TWO WRONGS DO NOT PRODUCE ONE RIGHT.

Even if you remove also Super Conqs, IS7s, Obj260s and Obj430us... people will just pick the strongest tank next in line and play that. Won't make much difference. It's the same everywhere in competitive gaming.

 

Heck you could allow only ONE tank in ranked mode and it would still be complete crapfest.

 

If you can't accept that, don't play ranked.
