Well gave it a good solid go last night and yes not having the x2 silver does suck but I was still putting away 50-95K silver in most battles as I don't run the large consumables that eat up silver. Based on the number of defenders and scourge tanks is every battle, these two by far are the player favorites and man can they bounce some hits...jeez! The number of players this go around is definitely quite a bit lower which is most likely due to the lack of the x2 silver which is a mistake. On PS4 I was only seeing 35-60 players in que most of the time so you were up against the same folks quite often. I found my favorite for the evening to be the ISU-130, that 130mm proved quite fit for the job as most hits took a good junk of health off the reds. 

I am not a fan of the new point system as It takes far too many points to move up levels the higher you go, I think it was much better when every level was at 3 wins or maybe 4. I started off in Iron league (not sure why they make us play one first as I am 99% sure that everybody starts in the bottom league) and was able to work my way up though the iron, bronze, silver leagues and finished the night in the gold league. Will have to see how things go tonight and see what happens.

Im loving it really, why so much whining? You get a chance to win 5 war chests in 2 days. Get a tier 8 prem out of one thats 50 bucks, stop crying.

Punishing everyone for the faults of few is not a fair system.

 

I have to admit that I can understand your viewpoint better after a couple of teams consisting entirely of beginners in premium tanks.

Who wants to be waste whole weekend to maybe get those chests when you can be so unlucky that you get just total potato muppets whole weekend on your teams, because i did notice on those few games i playd that in tier 8 those incompetent noobs are about 90% of the players when on tier ten ranked you get more money on those games and that total useles muppet number is only something like 75% of those players who are playing it

Well, night 2 wasn't too bad to me....got through gold and platinum and finished the night mid way through the masters league. I think it takes 7 or maybe 8 wins now to clear this level but hopefully I can get one or two more levels up. At first i thought I'd miss having the x2 silver which I do but all in all it isn't bad, had a couple battles that netted 100K silver after expenses so I am okay with it. At least I now have one commanders chest coming so missing out on the long haul OP isn't as big of a downer as all I have gotten from that in the past was commanders chests. The first night my ISU-130 was my go to tank for the night as it did the best for me. Last night, that tank wasn't as good to me so I switched over to the defender and dropped my gornych crew in there with 10 skills and that one really came to life. :playing:

Thumbs up for letting us play Tier 8 vs Tier 8, i like the Fact to play my Tier 8 Premium Tanks without just being Cannon Food for higher tiers. Please do a permanent Tier 8 only Mode , it's a lot of Fun. Good  Job!

I like the use of tier Vlll, but the point system, I don't really like it, and this time with less prizes it feels uncomfortable. I would really like more flexible terms for everyone, yes have a challenge and being rewarded by your skills not by playing 15 hours in a weekend to succeed.

I liked this one immensely better.  It felt more fluid.  Can't stand Tier X ranked battles.  However, they really need to go back to the scoring system they were using a three or four ranked battles ago.  This current scoring system sucks and continues to suck, no matter what Tier you're using.

I played eight or nine games last night in my Pershing  win every one of them. Whatever the number is to be one win from Gold League.

I must have lucked out, as I had great teams. We stayed together, flanked properly, and no one ran off and hid.

Posting all over the 'Ranked ' threads yet another WOT missmatch. My team has 2 mediums and 1 TD ( skorp G he dies in less than 1 minute), while their team has 3 TD's and no mediums. I get the only 2 kills, with 2700k dmg. Not 1 other teamate breaks 1000k. Now played ranked for 12 plus hours and still in silver . WOT you can go frick a dung pile.

Started ranked with just under 13 million in silver. Now have 11.5 million. WOT do you know what crap smells like? Could you describe the smell using only your game code?

I would like to make a suggestion(s) on how to make Ranked more interesting and competitive....

Teams: 15 versus 15

Team composition restricted to something like the following format:
2 SPG(max), 2-3 Lights(max), 3-4 TD, 3-5 Mediums, 3-6 Heavies

Possibly allow 2-3 person Platoons.(shouldn’t be too hard considering it’s a separate Mode/queue)

Points: Award Performance Points for things like Battle Ribbons(duelist, Sharpshooter, Reaper, etc) as well as for hit percentages and damage/kills/assistance.  Personal contribution matters... a LOT... and the current system is unfair in that it rewards a losing player who’s the best on their team with a zero-sum result while everyone else loses points.  In a 15v15 setup you can easily award positive points progress to team leaders whether they win or lose.

Tier: Why not Tier IX??? At this point it’s obvious that some players hate Tier X because of some of the absurdly powerful tanks being driven in the most abusive ways possible.  They hate Tier VIII because it’s flooded with absurdly powerful premiums being driven in the most abusive ways possible.  Tier IX also has some absurdly powerful tanks, but at least there’s no premiums and everyone has a chance to make major progress on grinds.  Heck, you could tie in a Tier IX Ranked Battles weekend with a Tier X sale!

Rewards:  Look, y’all spoiled these folks with all that X2 Silver with Tier X Ranked.  They ain’t too keen on this being missing this go round despite the aforementioned premiums....... not everyone is going to drive Premiums in Ranked, btw.  Just a little something extra for playing every match(even like a 20k silver win bonus) would be awesome.

I didn’t play Ranked this time and haven’t played more than a couple of matches the last few seasons.  I dislike the 7v7 setup because it’s just too much chaos for me to enjoy.  I also dislike Tier X and Tier VIII because I’m well aware of what kind of machines will dominate that environment and I ain’t havin it.

Now over 14 hours of ranked play and still in the silver league. On positive side heard one guy screaming profanities and then there was a crack like something electrical popped and he was gone, pretty sure he smashed his console. Another young guy started breaking glass and what sounded like plates and then was a hollow thud like something wet through a wall, pretty sure his internet is going away real soon. WTG WOT excellent customer relations.

15 hours made it to gold. 3 friends in well know clans made it through in less than 4 hours and 2 of them still playing have over 5000k scored. Hmmmmmmm now I am thinking something else is being discriminated.

I played a bit got to senior master, but the teams were bad quite often which was annoying. (I often finished top of my team)  There was not really enough time to progress as I did not have all weekend to play (just a couple of evening sessions really).  With the number of wins required a week would of been better to run the season for.
