Sorry but this is the dumbest part of ranked battles as a whole. toxicity and mass gold spam aside, why the hell should players be forced to complete 20 battles before they get any chevrons?!?! its detrimental to those players who have earned chevrons on the first rank because there is ZERO incentive to play well for the first 20 battles, just load into battle, bob around for 5 minutes, camp a little, dont fire any gold, dont use any premium consumables to get an edge, dont even bother trying... meanwhile the guys up top who have earned their first ranks get lumped with players who arent even bothering to contribute, and these are likely in every battle where you see a player without a rank. 

 

I dont run premium account, and neither do i have surplus stock of premium consumables, so as much as i try to break even with my credits which means i need to get some dmg in at least, without having 'qualified' for ranks yet, im really not even trying to play to win, which, in the end, makes my team suffer.... but hey its WoT, there is no team gameplay, everyone in it for themselves, right? and i dont gain chevrons, nor do i lose anyway, so who gives a flying fudge anyway... makes absolutely no difference to me if i simply suicide into the enemy 20 battles in a row :)

But how well you do dictates how many bonus battles you take into the 3rd div.

 

So it's vitally important to do well in those 20 quali games as it makes the next division easier

The performance in qualy influences the amount of "bonus battles" for the next stages, so actually it's quite important to do well in the 20 battles. Quite happy with the 12 bonuses i earned yesterday, too bad i don't have 12 good tier Xs to play with pepeHands

Congrats OP, you've made your progression further down the line that much harder by not putting in any effort now. Enjoy! ;)

its easier to climb the ranks at the start so i really dont need bonus battles at the very beginning once qualifying, when i actually get to earn chevrons, THATS when i will tryhard and play to win, and ill still earn bonus battles at the first stages. but im not spending up to 100k credits a battle simply to get some bonus battles at the very start when its easier to climb the ranks anyway, provided i play well. regardless, this is still an absolutely dumb idea, essentially being required spend up to 100k for 20 battles in a row, baicsally spend 2 million credits before you get any chevrons, so i stand by what i say, bonus battles at the start are no incentive to me when it requires paying out 2 million or more credits just to get 100% or more performance with no chevrons or ranks gained

You receive 1 mil after finishing qualifications and 1 token. If you lose 100k+ per battle then fire less gold?

congratz OP for shooting yourself in the foot

 

you will get fook all bonus battles so the creds you "saved" during quali will be lost during all other divisions, if not losing more creds due to that

 Maybe for you but for me 4 chevrons a game is massive progress

Isn't it funny that you're officially the "ape" in this conversation?

I think we can just through time at it though can't we? I mean, if we get zero chevrons, ok we won't get any bonus battles but at the same time we can just make up for it by playing more battles in the leagues? If a player is good enough then they'll get there anyway. What I'm not going to do is blow lots of credits or get frustrated working my backside off just to not lose a point by being a top 5 on a team of losers. In any case, click battle 20 times, 1 million credits.

Especially when u don't have premium account (as OP mentioned),  that's quite a deal I'd say.

IIRC they re-set daily, so you can re-do them in the same tank the next day.

It is and I completed it last night and finished the quali with chevrons too. Cheap and cheerful. I could have bagged a few more if I spammed heat and went full try hard mode too but I wasn't interested. I actually find myself not all that interested now that I've qualified unlike last year where I gave the mode a good run and enjoyed it. That's how it goes, I'm not forcing myself to play it either but for sure I'll grab a few battles over the next few days.

Q. Not saying i will have any left over but do the bonus battles carry over (i have 5 left and at rank 11 so still should use them all)?
