New point system is way much better and especially the fact that the best player on the losing team is spared from point loss.. That way everyone is inspired to play best they can, so even if you lose, there is still chance that you will not lose any points.

There were some smaller balancing issues, like distribution of autoloaders between teams. For instance, Three T57 Heavies in red team, only one in green..I mean could it be equaly divided so each team gets 2.. But nevermind that, still it's a way better Ranked Battles, compared to previous seasons. I've played last night and today (I'd say 4 hours in total roughly) and reached the highest league.

YAAAY! I'm a Grand Master! :great::medal:

Thanks for 5 mil silver, 30 days Premium Time, 30 xp boosts!

Best event ever!!! :great:

At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

I have a question about prizes. In the announcement it says highest league gets 10 War Chests. I haven't seen them in game on Ladder screen where rewards are listed. So do we get 10 War Chests for placement in Grand Master League?

Your screen says Chief Master.  You are yet to place as Grand Master.  One more league to go! The screen has an issue where it says chief master is the highest which is not correct.  We already have it logged.

I've got to agree that the new point system is 100000000000% better than in the past. I played some last night and bumped up a few levels but got a ways to go which I'm hoping I can climb a couple more levels later and a couple more tomorrow. However, the salt in this go around is brutal. I'll be completely honest when I say my tier X tanks get minimal play as I usually finish a grind and get right onto another so I am by far not great in any the X's. I like to enjoy some brewskies and run some battles and yes I like to win but really not one of those competitive psycho nuts that has to study stats and improve every stat on every game, I could care less about stats. I got several nasty messages last night and the screaming over the mic in game was atrocious. A few I responded with exactly how I fealt about their message and If I hurt their feelings then too bad. I win some, I lose some, some games I do great things and some games I do bad things but no matter what hate messages they send, I am not deleting my copy of WOT, I will not throw my PS out the window, and no I will not croak and go away.

ranked battles needs to last longer still; though.. iirc it is usually 2 weeks to a month on pc for both wot and wows...... we need more time for ranked battles... point system is getting better but could still use work...

why not keep the same system but extend each league by 700 points, so it is 1000 points per league but the ranked battles is 2 weeks long

also, make the 200% more silver permanent

this change has not done anything to the players on that matter that they trye harder because of that + 100points on a losing team, i have had so many games were one or two of my teamates have run to the fartest corner to be safe and stay there the hole match, until they die when all others have died or get 0 damage if we have won

lets not extend point reqs for leagues... we dont even need leagues... all we need is rank 21-1... and in order to move up in rank you have to earn stars from wins... 21-16 = 2 stars per rank, 15-11 = 3 stars, 10-6 = 4 stars, 5-1 = 6 stars... one star is gained per win, stars are lost for a loss... top player or so on the losing team lose nothing, nor do they gain.. ranks 21-16 are permanent, rank 11 is permanent, rank 6 is permanent, and rank 1 is permanent.. meaning you cant drop back from losing... reaching rank 1 will give you a token that you can redeem for a special premium tank once you obtain a certain amount of tokens, 1 per season

That's the screen of final 100 points from the Chief Master to Grand Master. When I look at the ladder it says I'm in Grand Master League. Please don't tell me there is something wrong with it :(

Hey Rai, what about those War Chests? Do we get them or not? It clearly says so in the announcement, but they are not listed on the Ladder screen in Ranked Battles. Would kitty img help?

Congrats, Makes me sad i no longer have a Tier X this time as sold Grille a month or two ago for other grinds. Hoping they use the same system next time and same rewards but Tier VIII :)

 

Cheers Mash! Yeah, shame you haven't played it. Perhaps you could repurchase some tier X? I saw a fair number of TD's in RB...Usually 2-3 per team, sometimes even more, but Death Stars and Waffles mostly, although I haven't seen that they have any advantage in this type of matches. Smaller teams, scouts are rare and pace is faster than usual. Only on one occasion there was arty in teams and I had the honor to erase it. My E100 performed fairly well even against Deathstars and Waffles...Although, I must admit those T57's are deadly especially if there is more than one in team.

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).
