I very much like German Vehicles and there's one up for grabs this Ranked season.

 

I reckon that, like CW, there's no guarantee I'll actually get it but this time, I'm motivated to try it.

 

My question is... How does Ranked play for the mediocre-ish to average player? What tips do you have that might increase the chances one does get the vehicle (again, recognizing there's a good chance I can fail)?

Might be wrong but didnt you have to play the last 2 seasons?

Ranked mode in this game is at the level of ranked in HoTs from Blizzard. crapthat does not worth time spent.

If you didnt play the previous 2 episodes its IMPOSSIBLE to get the tier 9 reward tank now.

 

Play it for the fun,  experience and bonds you will earn.

Well I tried it, with only obj 264/4, Kranvagn and  M60! I mean last season, and I managed to reach the second division, rank 13. 

 

What I learned was:

  • RBs are a place for players that have a hell a lot of TXs to use in rotation.
  • Spam gold 100% of the time, even artys.
  • If your WN8 (IDC about it TBH, but it was what I understood) is below 1700, don't participate, you'll just waste time and credits.

 

Join only if you like the rewards between the divisions such as gold, consumables and etc.

That is not true at all.

I reached second division tier 11, but ended at tier 9. I had only batchat, is7 and lt 100 back then. My wn8 is way lower than 1800.

I made some credits, bonds and gold I believe.

I did not fire any gold ammo, nor used premium consumables.

 

The mode is good. And a lot of players tried to play their role and teamwork.

Same here, played with only regular ammo, and small repair/first aid kit. And I had a great games to be honest. 

But I meant majority do that, so, it means, counting on you tank armour is laughable joke. :)

I still don't have enough T10s, but I managed to buy Proggetto 65, and ST-II (Ready for purchase just waiting for discounts) and Fv 215 183b.

I'll use progetto, 268/4, M60, 215 183 and Kranvagn this season, and hope for the best. :)

Well I disagree that counting on armor is a joke. The most OP tech three vehicle was the USA turetless TD. 

 

I managed to get a lot of good tier 10 tech three tanks (mous, 277,,ebr, sconq, wz5a,140, 430, strv and t57). So I hope I will manage to get in division 3. However I doubt I will complete it.

It will most probably return (like the AE) in the next round of Ranked. You can try getting it next time.

So your T10 tank gets locked if you die in battle or how does this work?

Yeh if you don't already have points from the last two rounds you won't be able to get it. 

 

Ranked really is just a grind, play enough and you'll progress. They have I believe changed the XP awarding this season, so it;s difficult to give tips, previously I would suggest kill stealing a lot as that gave absurd XP but I think they have changed it. 

 

People will say you have to have X tank or the mode is full of just reward tanks or you can't do well with tech tree tanks or you have to spam gold every shot.

 

But none of it is really true, its all over exaggerated because it's a frustrating game mode because you lose progression when you lose, sometimes through little fault of your own.

 

I progressed pretty easily to the last division mainly using the UDES 15/16, some Super Conq and some games in lights. The role XP thing basically opens up being able to use more tanks and because there is this myth that you need Chieftains or whatever, you often find not many people take lights or TDs, or support meds which gives you plenty of opportunities to earn your role XP. 

 

The main key IMO for ranked is recognising when to retreat to allow yourself to keep your Chevron when the team is clearly going to lose, or knowing when you need to push to make sure you earn your Chevron because your team is clearly going to win easily.

I will probably reach battle pass lvl 45 easily. Is it worth playing ranked battles or just grind battle pass elite levels for bonds? Which one is better? I have not played ranked before.

Totally against each other. In RBs if you lose, your not only going to get nothing, but also lose your progress. In BP you'll earn points even while losing the battle, and it's available from T6-T10. But RB Is just for tier 10.

 

So go for Battle Pass. 

I participate only for the bond equipments (in case I couldn't reach the T9 reward tank) and for the gold inbetween divisions progression. Because I'm f2p, and I know that I have enough skill to progress to reach a good position (not the top 50% players tho definitely).

Otherwise? I wouldn't participate at all.

Just like Randoms, if you die, it's locked until battle ends. Also when you reach division 2 rank 13-15, unicomes will start appearing slowly, and it'll definitely get harder to progress further.

There will definitely be a lot of chieftains this time but that also means a lot of bad chieftain players who think they will dominate. I would advise you to pick an autoloader like progetto or TVP where you can punish enemy mistakes easily.

 

Or you can pick arty and just try to hit as many tanks as possible.

Kranvagn, STB-1, ST-II can be good options as well, because you have solid turret with good damage to trade.  

But best would be UDES 15/16, proggetto 65, TVP, 48 patton, 140 and 430U from tech tree tanks, bc25t can work too but I've never tried it. Mediums are best choice imo.

You can probably earn more bonds in less time in ranked, but seeing as you'll still have like two months after rank finishes before battle pass ends, you can probably do both pretty easily.

If you start early qualification will be fine, because the quality of player is generally better, but then you will be progressing the waves with all the Chieftains/279es etc.

 

If you start late, qualification will be more painful because all the better players will have already progressed so the terrible masses who barely progress will be in the qualification, but once you get into the proper ranks, you will see less meta tanks because all the Chieftain/279es
