It's the same old , Start Silver, Slide gold ;Then 1 step forward 2 back ....The flavor is gone . It's still fun , Equal tanks and NO ARTY is great . 

 

The first ever 5's spoiled me . I kept running into the same player . They were in a Rampanzer ; I in a VK Heavy . Every match I would see that Rampanzer coming for me . I'd kill him , He/ she would kill me . Til one match it came charging at me with a Green square over it's head , WE killed everybody . It went on like all day . Sometimes friend sometimes foe , We never sent messages and ranked battles haven't been the same since .

First time doing ranked battles and not really impressed. Point gains for wins can be tiny and yet points lost for loosing are away huge. As I'm an Australian my default is the Asian server so the language barriers mean coordination when playing solo with randoms is almost impossible. Also it appears if you don't have a Tiger 1 (or variant), T29 or M41 Bulldog you are not really competitive, I can't believe the meta at tier VII is that limited but it appears it is. My overpriced FV201 (A45) continues to be a major disappointment as its tissue paper armour and slow speed just doesn't cut it against them, and I'm reasonably good with this tank as I have an Ace Tanker award for it etc. The only other options I have are a non-upgraded Black Prince and a Challenger which again won't cut it against those OP German and Yank tanks.

Not even a day in and I'm ready to quit it as I got stuck in the Silver League and every time I inch my way to almost making it into the Gold you end up having a run of matches with crap players and find yourself back down where you originally started from. Sorry but its like beating your head against a wall and I'm frankly not enjoying it.

Why only make this event once a month?  Even with other events and Ops going on, you could do a Ranked Battles every weekend.  Several other MMO's have some kind of event going on that usually lasts a week and starts over during their weekly reset.  Since these are only for weekends, why not do one every week and make it a different Tier each time?  Start with Tier 10 the first weekend and work backwards down to Tier 3 each following weekend.  That way every Ranked Battle will be with different Tiers for those that prefer certain Tiers over others.  Also, if someone is looking for a specific one, they can plan ahead on what weekend they want to be available for it and whatnot.  This is a good opportunity to make Ranked Battles an ongoing type of event that all players will be able to participate in at some point.

  The Point system is a mess.  If you have a good game the number of personal points seems low. A the amounts awarded for team performance is way too high, I won't play the ranked battles again until this is addressed. Why not cap the number of points for team performance at a lower number or make it a flat rate like if your team wins + 10 points  or if they lose - 10 points? Ranked battles could be fun if you get the points system straightened around

That clicking noise issue is annoying. If you press at the results/getting points screen to fast the clicking noise get stuck in the loop. I had to log out & back in.

^^^this i agree it done the same thing last rank battles we had and if you go back to the garage and wait for the battle to end. it will show results of the points in the garage before you even look at the log with the same clicking sound.it will stay there till after you hit the continue button.

Not sure how WoT PC works but in World of Warships (WoWS) Ranked are based on Winning games alone. You win game you get 1 star. Each rank (there are usually 20+ from top to bottom) requires a number of stars to advance to next rank, less in lower ranks. Some ranks you cannot fall below once you get there. If you get nailed on first salvo but your team win, good for you then. I think if you managed to survive a loosing match (or top scored), you don't loose a star.

 

Point system we are using is convoluted. Make it only Winning games count. Nobody cares how you get the win, cap or kill them all are fine.

Points system sucks! You can't rely on teammates to help you.

Can't stand the points system. We're penalized too much for a loss, regardless of how well you do. I'm managing 2nd or 3rd place every battle, but because my team gets overwhelmed every game, I lose 25+ points every damn time.

 

I do like how dynamic battles become with just 7 per team, though. That's a nice change of pace.

 

Edit: Funny. Game seems to be taking pity on me now. Actually a couple games.

 

P.S. I hope you're gathering data from these games for balancing purposes. Seems like the perfect controlled test environment, if you ask me.

Ranked matchmaking seems to be working as intended.  For every one really good team you get, you get five or six games with complete crap teams.

 

:angry:

 

Why in the absolute hell would you bother with Ranked Battles in a Tiger that you haven't fully upgraded, yet?  Why even bother?  Just help your team out and uninstall the game.  We're just going to use you as a meatshield, because that's about all the good you are in the match.

I've seen quite a few of those stock Tigers over the last couple of days. I'm assuming they are grinding them while they can't see tiers 8&9. If you aren't worried about your ranking then I suppose it makes a.kind of sense. 

 

It's harsh for teammates who are concerned with their rank though.  :)

If we must insist on the point systems going forward, please allow us to join as Platoon. 5 players platoons are fine, give some room for the single players. That way if we loose, go blame the xbox friends instead for bad teamwork.

I wasn't surprised to see so many Tiger's this weekend, but like you said, there were an awful lot of the stock version driving around.  Although, after doing the Ranked Battles all weekend, I've noticed my regular game has actually gotten a lot better while running my dailies today.

Had a good time. Enjoyed the lack of arty! Played it mainly for the benefit of crew training and silver earning in an environment that doesn't affect my current stats. 

 

I think the individual effort should be weighed more than the team effort in terms of gaining/losing points. Look forward to playing ranked battles again, as this was the first time I decided to participate!

 

Also, will premium tanks ever be considered as prizes?

I went from platinum to grand master today. I ran the 131 and didn't have too many problems except for the light tanks being a little op  with the autoloaders.
