Wargaming and World of Tanks team you have all my respect. Thank you very much for making Ranked Battles more fair to the players. Removing CW reward tanks means that the Ranked Battles will be skilled based and not more who has the more OP tank. I'm grateful to know that you listen to players and taking this decision was hard but it was the right thing to do so that you can make a more competitive Ranked Battles. The good players will understand that they have to show how good they are by playing the same tank as the opponent and not a highly overpowered one. Finally there is a chance for Ranked Battles to be skill based ^^

Hmmm, for the first time ever I think I might give this a go. GJ excluding some reward tanks!

 

Now, I hope you will announce the new items in the bond shop BEFORE removing the current ones.

That's one of the reasons why leaving constructive feedback is so important for us, as it helps us to improve the game in the long run. :)

Good luck on the battlefields of the RB! 

 

For the question, unfortunately I have nothing that I could share as of right now. As always, communication about this should be made through our portal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do you guys like the changes?

And also for staying neutral in certain current events. Or at least not forcing it into the game.

It is indeed a fantastic change, but I'm still upset that they resist to nerf these OP tanks.

They will keep dominating the other competitive modes, especially clan wars, not to mention how bad it feels for everyone to face them in random battles.

This makes me wonder why these tanks are not in the campaign reward system.. This devalues the campaign even more.. Besides that these changes seem good imo.

 

 

Never mind, I read it wrong :)

As the article states, Ranked Battles are supposed to be a mode in which best tactics and personal skill wins. :)

Mid-summer means July, right? I managed to get over 20k bonds & I'd like to spend it on something. Will all the items, in the current shop, be replaced or will the new get added along with the current ones?

Don't want to ruin the mood, but removing reward vehicles from Ranked was 1st suggested by the community like a year ago?
It's a pretty long time.
I get that they didn't want to change it right after the February CW event as that allowed some players to Finally become competitive in Ranked for at least the 2nd half of the season.

In my opinion, you can't make level playing field, unless all participating players use the exact same vehicle, like in this Sturmtiger mode.

If someone has a crew with 6+ skills with purple/pink equipment also has the advantage over a player with a newly aquired t10 tank.

On the other hand, the guy who drives the tank with purple stuff and 6+ crew, spent a lot of time to have a 6+ skill and purple stuff.

Also, those guys who has a reward vehicle, put lot of time to get that vehicle.

 

So in my opinion, either use template vehicles for ranked battles, or let everyone use whatever he/she has.

Poor 121B, nobody wants to play it in random and now it's use is "limited" in ranked, whatever that means.
