Can somebody enlighten me? These ranked are now at tier VIII. The article states that in order to participate you have to own at least tier III. Does it mean that it's possible to access ranked battle with lower then 8th tiered tank? 
80% for weather maps, lol. Murica supreme intelect powered by Cola and MC Donalds. Have fun bois...

You can Access ranked battles once you unlock tier 3 but you will be unable to select a tank

 

if you dont have at least a tier 3 unlocked you won't even be able to select ranked battles

Hmm, tier VIII and so many choices...may have to bring the old KV5 Gornych out for some terror on the hill in Himmelsdorf :). This monster can be deceiving as some matches everybody knows how to damage you and every round goes through you but at other times it can be  a blocking beast and bounce almost everything tossed at it.

That grand prize reward is pretty rad ;):)  I wonder how many people will raise to the challenge!

So you get prem days and (6) 1 time use ops. Not bad nothing, head turning.

Medal on your console stat page that no one will see is the only exclusivity out of this.

Maybe a better acknowledgment of a reward

Doesn't have to be an exclusive tank to a league but maybe a league emblem for your tanks or league camo?

League Emblem would be cool as hell.

I agree. Earnable emblems are always going to be better than medals only seen on a website. No one cares about what kind of medals you have gotten. Things that turn heads are MoEs and emblems on tanks. I've heard randoms complement my tank on game chat because they saw my MoE. I've never heard anyone say "Wow! You got a Lump of Coal medal! Congrats bro!"

Will I still be able to complete an ace op for a newly purchased tier VIII while doing ranked battles?

i don't think so, I'm fairly sure Ops are disabled for the Ranked lobby

My impressions after playing almost a dozen games including the qualifying round (got into the Gold League):

 

(1). 7v7 games just aren't that interesting and they feel a lot more random than 15v15 because each weak player now represents a bigger percentage of a team.

(2). gameplay is different because lemming trains are more effective - teams that spread out too much will die because the lemming train cuts them to pieces.

(3). lack of platoons means that there is even less coordination between players than usual (or maybe it's another side effect of (1)).

(4). With lack of regular matchmaking, people converge towards using a small set of tanks: IS-3, Tiger II, KV-4 - this leads to less diversity, hence the mode gets boring fast.

(5). No ops and slow grind makes it even more boring. 

(6). Maybe the most important - why should I play this mode and waste my time when I could play regular MP to complete Ops, earn more silver, and get my performance tracked properly in the game (i.e. have my stats updated). For a ranked game, there is not much ranking - this is like those diversity modes with Toy tank, Boat tank, and what not - they're just not worth the time once the novelty wears off, and it wears off pretty fast (proof is in the participation numbers). I understand this is in Beta, but it could make more attractive.

(7) Premium time for getting in leagues above Gold is fine, but is not enough.

 

Improvement suggestions:

 

- I'd seriously consider scrapping this mode, just to divert resources to better purposes (like bringing more tanks from the PC version). I don't expect you'll consider this seriously, but it would lead to improvement, so I had to make the suggestion. :)

- Add some fun Ops, so there is some reward (XP/silver) for playing in this mode other than just the slow progression.

- Allow me to unlock the 2X daily XP bonus for the tanks that I play. This bonus is one of the main reasons I play WoT - I cycle through a dozen tanks, try to unlock this bonus, then I call it a day. If I can't do it in this mode, I'm not going to waste my time with it.
