Stopped playing after only a couple hours. There's almost no balance amongst teams numerous games of one team having 5+ TD's and my team will have 1 or 2 and that's another thing too many TD's every game or tanks that aren't even viable for the maps. Ranked is literally just an RNG fest of getting lucky with how many good players you get on your team consistently there's little to no skill involved in it and yet it's called ranked battles might as well make it 15v15 like standard battles as there's normally very little teamwork anyway with 7v7. The point system is also pretty crap it should reward better performing players more points rather than everyone gets the same amount even if you had a guy on your team who did 0 dmg and died immediately he still gets 100 points for the win just like the guy in first even though he had no contribution to the win.
Just a few things out of many problems I can think of not that you guys would change anything anyway gotta keep it potato friendly right? :sceptic:

I  am most likely in the minority here but I much preferred the points system and the rewards from the first 2 tier 10 ranked battles. I know that several people here on the forums complained that they were too easy but I don't have the time to put in to grind to the higher leagues. Also I am trying to grind the machine contract and I don't have a tier 10 british medium or heavy yet.

 

In addition to this the rewards are lacking for the amount of time needed to get to the top levels.  So, I don't see myself participating in any ranked battles in the near future the way they are now!!  So, this is my thoughts for what ever they are worth...

I finished the Grand Master league and it was a grind!  I like the rewards; it would always be nice to have more.  I like the chance to play my Tier 10's and still accumulate silver in the process.  I would like to see separate player stats for league; is that possible?

I don’t even bother as I’d rather grind the ops stuff and the rewards aren’t good enough to take the time and deal with all the losses. And I like to analyze my stats so the fact that nothing is logged for rank makes it even less interesting to me personally

Hello,

 

Personally, I finished Grandmaster and I had a Centennial T95 in my rewards, I'm happy with the rewards, moreover the X2 silver every battle is great! However, I find the ranked battles difficult from the 2nd day it becomes very difficult to mount the leagues, whatever the level of the player, since it is played on the chance to have a team that plays precisely ... as a team! I seriously think that allowing 2-man squads would be better and will not interfere with matchmaking with only the fact that they are in the same league. Then something more simple to adjust: put the same types of tanks on each side, because to end up with 3 TD in front and 1 in our team, I find it unbalanced.

 

Thanks.

Made it to the top and still continued to play a few games afterwards. First ranked I've bothered to play in months really enjoyed it this time plus I love tier 10s

 

As for the rewards I didn't get much from the 6 chests in total just under 2000 gold and some boosts

Wasn’t able to participate, as I was out traveling. It’s mother’s day in the states - be a bad look to lug around a PlayStation with me.

I did not participate in Ranked.  I don’t like the scoring system and I don’t like the chaos of 7v7 matches.  Can we try a Ranked season with 15v15?  Can we also combine that with a more merit-based scoring system so that top performers can still make some advancement on a loss?

I think that after ranked battles is over all the maps that were in the rotation should not be in the regular rotation.  Guess what I've played twice so far today.... Ghost town.  I mean I'm a little sick of that map right now.

The rewards are worse now than they used to be. Go back to the 30 days of premium time. 7 days isnt enough. Overall the rewards need to be scaled up. The points system is awful and relies on teammates rather than player skill earning points. It's nice when you lose and are on the top of the team so you remain at the same points. But when winning the better you do the more points you should earn. Finally there is too many TDS. It goes to show how unbalanced they are when that's all anyone plays is deathstars, E4s, and waffles. WG continues to think they are balanced though...

Good morning forum. 

 

Just thought I would toss in a couple thoughts about ranked battles, myself.

 

1. I agree, as someone mentioned, that there should be an adjustment to the point system, to reward top scorers on a team (winners or losers), extra points for the reason stated above. This prevents the lazy's from just throwing tanks into matches, driving forward to die quick so they can do it again and again hoping their team can carry the win to get their 100pts in the hopes to up their league rank through luck. Admittedly, with the point system as is, it would be luck to be effective, but is possible. Since ranked has no repair costs, and not shooting costly ammo, it is still possible to earn silver (albeit just a minimal amount), just for putting the tank in battle, even in losses.

2. I, too, wish there was a separate stats screen for ranked battles performance. It could include number of times a player has participated in ranked battles and what league they finished at. For example, played ranked 5 times, 1 silver finish, 1 platinum finish, 1 master finish, 2 grand master finishes. Then include stats similar or same as other stats page, ie tanks used, shots hit %, survived %, etc, etc. It could also include a separate breakdown of stats for the previous ranked battles played as well as an overall accumulated stats for all ranked battles combined. This would allow players to see how/if they are improving in their ranked performance.

3. I would like to see an addition to the points system to advance in leagues. Keep it the way it is, but include a counter to track overall wins to help advance to next league. For example, 10 accumulated wins gets to bronze, then 20 more for silver, etc, etc. I believe this would reduce the frustration level players feel after investing hours and hours of their time playing, only to not advance at all.  Currently, it takes 300pts to advance to bronze league, 400 for silver, etc, etc, progressively up to 1000 for grand master league. But, with the +/- 100pt system as it is, a player could potentially play 100 or even 1000 matches, and be in top 3 scorers for their team in every match, and still not even advance  to the bronze league. How many of you ranked players have gotten to within 100pts of the next league, only to lose again and again (through no serious fault of your own), just to be back to square one and starting over in your league. I myself got to 3-4 wins from GML 3 times yesterday, only to be knocked back to the beginning each time. What good is it to win 100 times, lose 100 times, and because you need to string consecutive wins to advance, you go nowhere. In other words, time, perseverance, and effort should be rewarded. Some might say that ranked is supposed to determine who the best are. But, I disagree. Unicoms and super unis know who they are by their stats, not where they placed in ranked battles. Getting to GML does not automatically make a player a uni or a superuni.  

4. As a whole, I like the rewards I get, but I do miss the 30 days prem time for GML. However, since ranked is each month now, 7 days is reasonable. I would like to suggest having the ranked battles at the end of the month rather than the middle, though. That way the premium time earned (if any, lol), can help me with the new campaign ops. About one third, or so,of the stages give bonuses with premium. So, getting a bit just as the new chapter of the campaign starts is fantastic for financially challenged players, such as myself. This lets me use more of my gold for other goodies in the game, such as that prem tank I've been trying to scrimp, scrape, and save for. But, to no avail, because I have to use it up instead to get prem time for the camp stage bonuses.

Anyway, I've blathered enough. I hope everyone enjoyed it, as I did (even though I only got to next to last league, this time. Boohoo. Lol). As always, may your tracks be swift, your armor be strong, and your aim be true. Keep on tankin', and I'll see you on the battlefield , or in the funnies. :-)

As you guys forcing in every ranked battle season only small coridor maps and city maps I never play this nonsense. If you include more open maps, maybe I change my mind; otherwise I despise it!

I found the Ranked Battles to be a bit of a mixed bag this time around. But really only mixed since I had other objectives. 

 

The Pros:

     >Made a fortune in Silver. Got me back to a good place financially, and equipment on every tank in the garage. 

     >Advanced The Machine Contract. Stage 8, both Kills and XP counted so I darn near finished the stage. 

 

The Cons:

     >Scoring system is till very broken. Would be very nice if WG acknowledged this, and even better if some changes were made to

       make individual performance matter. When a Uni (aka Me) can get stuck in Platinum for something like five+ hours then

       something is not right. 

     >Tank Selection was absurd. All the Tryhards running their most broken tank available (Deathstars, Waffles, E4, etc). Takes some

       of the fun out of it, and I couldn't fight fire with fire since I was working the Contract. I don't have an answer to that other than not

       being in Tier X. An exclusion list?

 

Finished out as Master League after a lucky run near the end. It will be nice to see what the War Chests have for me when I get home. So again, a mixed bag in that Ranked Battles still has some major issues, but those issues didn't get in the way of my personal objectives.

I second these! The top scorers in both winning/losing ones should get "net" incentives, not "gross" ones which we have now. 

 

The silver multipliers, no repair costs and XP going towards Merc contracts are the only reason I play the ranked matches. To make it playable by more number of players, the broken scoring system needs to be changed including maybe more open maps with different team sizes.

Current scoring system is horrible.  It just runs it into the ground.  The scoring system they had in place before this incarnation was way better.  Playing it with this scoring system doesn't make it enjoyable at all.  It makes you not even want to play the mode.  

 

Why do they bother to keep having Feedback threads for Ranked Battles with so many people complaining about how bad the scoring system is, only to keep the same scoring system in it over and over and over?  This is just one more example of the huge disconnect between the Dev's and the players.

yeah people have complained about the point system literally every single time and they've made no changes I've barely even played ranked the last 3 times because of it I'd rather play standard battles and get tanks done as well as actual merc contract progress than deal with ranked as is.

Rewards? Lol. Rewards were, well, crap after all that time spent. I made Master League (which took way too long because of the horrendously awful matchmaking) and got a million, one day of premium time, and two chests. In the chests were a total of 470 Gold, a useless, crappy tier 3 premium light tank (this tank is weird, it is classified as a light tank by its symbol and in the tech tree, but it's name says it's artillery... wth? which the heck is it?). Anyhow, this was an unwanted, unneeded tank I will probably sell for $170K silver. In addition I got the typical "gamble" ops boost (on PC you get to apply your ops boosts AFTER a match), and also some worthless Crew Customization vouchers (I must have about 50+ of these already and unused). PLEASE for the love of god take these out of "war chests". They are freaking worthless. All in all, ranked was mostly a waste of time (however compulsive I became about playing it), and thoroughly unenjoyable due to horrible matchmaking, unbalanced teams, ill-conceived point scoring system, and I could go on. If changes aren't made, will be the last time I play ranked. Anyhow, thanks WG!!!! Woo hoo!!
