I just passed through the qualification stages of ranked battles using my M48 Patton (as my only other choice was a Type 5 Heavy).

 

The result of my 20 games showed

- Very few OPed beasts

- A mix of experienced and non experienced players, resulting in fun game play for someone of my average skills

- , but if you play 20 games they give you 1 M silver

 

Will I be progressing further up the ranks in the quest for silver, bonds, spare parts and glory?  Heck no, I can't afford it (It's tier X and still expensive as hell).

 

So, if you were looking to join in on the fun and were hesitating because you only have a few tier Xs to choose from, hesitate no more.  Dive in, waste your credits, have some fun (or not)

People like to meme about 279e or Chieftain ruling ranked, but in my experience this hardly is the case in qualification or 3rd division. Maybe higher divisions are filled with Chieftains :confused:

I had a game yesterday in 1st Div with no arty, no 279s and no Chieftains. There was 5 EBRs though :sceptic:

For now most of the 279e & chieftain owners are either in the 1st division or finished ranked so ofc you do not see them in the qualification anymore...

279e is not actually even close as strong as chieftain in Ranked though.

I've never played Ranked- is it play 20 games and come in the top x positions, or just play 20 games? I suck at tier 10, so it may take a while if I have to come top 10 :D

Qualification is 20 games. It won't matter how many you lose or win or be among 10 best players, you get 1 million after 20th game.

It's just 20 games, win, lose or draw and no matter where you end up with regards to number of chevrons.

 

That's the only reason I played.

 

Keep in mind, even using just normal ammo, you risk to lose 5-30000 credits per battle, but since you get 1M at the end of the 20 games you're still ahead.

Hi I'm only back to WoT recently after a nice big break so I need a tiny bit of info on RB.

 

This bonus battle thingy... I read what it says and apparently it's automatic. Now, if you look at the screenshot it reads, automatically applied to a battle but then it says once a day and yet I have 2 extra?? Any reason for that and what exactly governs what battle it decides to apply this X2 chevron bonus? A win with 2 chevys, a win with 1 chevy, a loss with 1 chevy, random?

 

 

 

I only noticed this bonus just now(lol!! :trollface:) and thankfully it was a X2 2 chevys but ya I'm a bit in dark about how it works, what battle with chevys is enough to trigger it and why do I have 2 extra if it's randomly coughed out once a day, I don't think I can earn more can I and if so what's the point if it's limited to one a day?

 

Spoiler

 

 

Also, clicking on the icon thinking I had some sort of control of what battle I could apply it too, I then read that its automatic BUT, wouldn't it be a really nice option that if like me you have a couple of "spare" we can manually chose the battle to boost just like the X3 xp for a premium account? Or does the extra 2 protect me against losing chevys or something like that?

 

Spoiler
