According to the latest news release from WG on Ranked Battles, these are the top five tanks from the latest season.

Now give us the top five tanks for the top 25% of the ranks Wargaming.

If you tried reading you would see the sentence above the 5 tanks which would give you a mild hint why the tanks you expected to see there arent there...

I did read it, but that's the whole point if you pause and think about it before jumping in trying to score cheap forum points.

 

The forum is awash with people complaining about reward tanks in ranked battles.

 

CC's are complaining about reward tanks on their streams of ranked battles.

 

But then for some odd reason WG decide that because they're "rare" they don't get included in any statistics.

 

Hence the point about showing the actual tanks at the top 25% of the ranks. Maybe think AFTER you read.

And where did it say the only reason they are excluded is because of rarity? yes they are rarer than tech tree tanks but the main reason is because they're harder to unlock, the articles whole point is to help players decided which tanks to get BEFORE the next season starts. Which if you didn't selectively crop that part out beforehand for your own argument, that would be more obvious 

 

"

Commanders!

As a new season of Ranked Battles is getting close, now is the perfect time to take a look back and observe the meta of this highly competitive game mode. If you want to know which lines to go for before the new season kicks in, here are some guidelines for you."

"As they're rarer", and no it didn't say the only reason. But come on. Of course they want everyday players to go for the right tanks for ranked battles. 

 

"Hey everyone, we know that when you get to higher tiers it's infested with reward tanks, but we're not going to tell you this. So what we'd like you to do is have a go anyway with some of the more popular tech tree tanks for ranked battles like these ones".

 

Why not just do a press release "The most popular tech tree tanks for ranked battles (full stop)". 

 

They did a "TOP 5 Tanks" announcement, and then discounted some tanks that may or may not be in that top five (who knows) because they're rare or hard to unlock. So for all the playerbase knows that top five is actually numbers 4-9?

 

The "argument" as you so eloquently put it is why do WG feel the need to do a press release of this nature? My reading of it is there clearly are many reward tanks in the top five, which mirrors player experiences, and in the absence of any other indication, it's a proxy acknowledgement from WG.

 

If people want to do the usual forum thing of turning a fairly banal conversation into a war and peace argument, then I'll just drop out now and leave the mods to close the thread. It's just an observation, I'm not starting WW3.

Special vehicles should be excluded from participation in Ranked Battles. Period.

 

Even the Obj. 260 is stronger than its tech tree soviet equivalents, and everyone knows just how capable 907s and Chieftains are.

 

IMO it's unfair for the majority with those special tanks around.

 

Level the playing field like you leveled your maps, WG. This is supposed to be an event to reward players with skill, not players with OP tanks.

WG should sell the clanreward tanks for credit before the new ranked round, I guess no one would mind that. It will bring just more money to develop the game. Good players have their WN8, mods and WG rating anyways.

I wish all the best luck for all players who do not own Chieftain/279e/907. Get balanced comrades!

Well, tbh I would like to see the top 5 with the reward tanks too. Just to see how many of the other 5 they squeeze out. But I suspect they went for that version of the list, as that's what everyone can get to "compete" in ranked. So they know the lay of the land on what's worth getting, more so then what reward tank will dominate them when they get there.

An interesting reason to rule them out of the list.   If they were that rare they wouldn't even need to take them out of the list.  One might even think that they are disproportionately used in Ranked and WG don't want to put the plebs off.  :)

Don't you bring any of your foul RGT banter into this thread! This is a good clean thread for local people.

907 is quite common these days. Any player able to place in top 1k has it by now.

Chieftain not so. Too new and a lot of good players didn't had a chance to get it.

 

279e, well, this one is a clear advantage. 

 

One could argue that skill was required to get these tanks and skill is measured in ranked.  But I'd say that collective skill is not the objective of ranked and as such only 279e and 260 should be allowed. 

 

It fits that I own 279e. A little bias doesn't hurt anyone, eh ?

Is the obj 907 / Obj 260 a cw reward tank or personal missions reward?
I always keep mixing them up

So are those 5 regular tech tree tanks mentioned actually viable in Ranked? Any other regular tech tree TXs? Because I have neither the CW tanks nor the Personal Campaign tanks and would like to tett the mode out at some point, but I wonder if I will just gimp myself and my team going into battle in the CAX or Wz5A...

Well you know, WG is still "gathering data" if Obj907 or Chieftain or 279e are balanced or not. These processes take time man :bajan:
