Hello tankers!

 

With the announcement of our 2nd round of ranked battles being active a day earlier, we are going to open the discussion of feedback.  

We did major changes based on what was shared in the forums by our players during our first round <- ah... memories :ohmy:        :P

 

YOU KNOW THE DRILL! SAME AS BEFORE!

 

We want it all!: Your feedback on scoring, feedback related to matchmaking, feedback on tanks, feedback related to the engagement as a team or as a solo player; in-game bugs (please report these ASAP and also let us know which console you are in!); suggestions; concerns.  WE WANT ALL THE FEEDBACK!!!

 

A way you can help us is by sharing what part of RB you did not like or agree with; proceed to explain why, and then, if you have a suggestion on how we can improve your experience with RB please let us know! :)  If you don't have a suggestion, that's ok too ;)

 

See what I mean?  We want substantial and tangible feedback we can use in order to analyze and hopefully improve your experience with RBs.  The more descriptive you are, the better.

I guess tier 5 is a good number to start with. I have a lot more tier 5 tanks to play with than I have tier 8-10. The more tanks the merrier in the lobby queue. 

“Out of every 15 men, 5 shouldn't even be there, they are campers or arty,  5 are just potatoes, 4 are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”

You have to go through the whole process of playing with idiots to be ranked AGAIN. Not bothering with this. What a waste. 0/10

Also since we only see the same tier there is not reason for premium ammo ( I have noticed this is all people fire ) so take it out

Really though the premium ammo needs to be removed from ranked play that is literally the only thing people fire

If every one fires premium then why don't you it just tells you what to expect going in to battle

Doesn't help when two of your "team mates" self destruct immediately. Why do they get any points? Should be barred from the event.

Because I don't need premium shells for sane tier opponents

I don't think it's too bad so far and yes, I found out pretty quick that firing premium ammo is very beneficial although quite foreign to me as i very rarely use it, hence I used my Pz v/iv in most of the first 5 matches. One thing I wanted to ask is, are the tanks running with all the perks, skills and equipment active? I just felt that the performance of my pz 5/4 felt quite sluggish. That could be purely because i haven't played it in quite a while and thought it was better than it is. (It's still a good tank). I ended up doing well in it after adjusting my play style, but one of the guys i platoon with said he thinks that WG have made it so that every tank plays without the perks and equipment active to make it a more even contest. Any truth in this? Or are we all just imagining it? Because I'm not the only one out of my friends that have noticed a perceived performance drop. We just can't work out if it is real or imagined.

Same problem with the points / XP as the normal game. Do nothing in a win and get points. Do great in a loss and you are penalized.

Points should be based on your performance with a small percentage bonus for a win.

Far too win focussed.

I give up. Scoring system is a joke. Completely dependant on team who can't buy a win.

the scoring system is based on your teams overall rank if you lose alot of points in a loss it means you lost to a less skilled team and didn't do enough to reduce that loss to less points

here is my opinion after 76 ranked battles . lets start with the point system . i think you got it or really close anyways . i would say leave it just the way it is , and work on the things that really do need to be fixed . match making is all tier 5 it can't get any better then that . as far as every body -itching over it being tier 5 . i kind of like tier 5 lots of really good tier 5 tanks . i like that its is 10 vs 10 makes for faster rounds . now for the negative things i have found .  it's like being a rubber ball . because of the 50/50 deal you can't  get any were i would get with in 10 - 20 point from the next league and bang ! bang !  your right back down to level 3 again . one thing is for sure these ranked battles sure proves that the 50/50 deal is real . i think the biggest problem with the game room is . you make it were we can't team up with our friends , but yet you make it a team thing . that has no rhyme or reason to it . either make it a team event and let us put out own teams together . or make it a solo event . which means you only get what you earn .

It shouldn't be based on wins,  after 10 games am losing points because am not winning.  Am at the top on my team pretty much every game with damage and kills but always lose points?

Ranked battles in all games is about wins, this is competitive play, your supposed to go for Wins otherwise its just Random Battle but with stats

It's bad because when players only use premium 2 things happen 1. Those players are frowned upon 2. When all they do is spam premium shells they don't try and play smart they just go for trash damage and 3. (A bonus) there is no reason to fire the premium shells against same tiered opponents.

Ranked battles are (should be) about the individual. If, as you say, it is about "competitive play" and playing to get a win, then it is just a random battle.

A ranked battle system should be judging the player as a single unit within the team irrespective of what the team around him do. If the player does X amount of damage that exceeds the expectations of the chosen tank, but the team harvests potatoes, then that player shouldn't be penalised.
