The rewards are now less, which makes no sense. Is this WG going back to being stingy?

Second, the teams and communication continue to suck. I will say 8s are slightly better than 10s for the simple fact of not getting 1-shot. But, the idea that I still not platoon yet the results are dependent on my team is stupid. 

I'm fine with difficulty but not when my progress is solely reliant on others, which are randomly selected and terrible. 

 

There have been other models suggested that are harsh to bad players and good to good player, why haven't those been put in?

Calling wg stingy is a bit harsh.   The amount of free stuff that has been given away with all the spring/summer games  etc lately is great.

Maybe one day they'll realize that the puntuation system doesn't work at all with the given restrictions on the mode. Who knows...

Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

Not only that it's tier 8 ranked too full of people who have only premiums that have no experience in the game. Not bothering with it this time

Made a few million and will get some crates, so can't complain.

 

Also used it to crew train some greens and stock grind about 100k.

Ranked Battles is just pure frustration! 

Players sticking together, but pushing in front of shots.... not giving room or sitting behind others....

Following you, then running away at the sight of red team.....

 

Then you have all those tankers playing glass cannons & arty, often doing sweet F-all

7 Vs 7 on these bigger maps is also a joke..... lost flanks & lights capping for win.

 

Thank goodness you can do a Merc contract during this madness! :teethhappy:

Doing best I can for new clan, but I can see why I haven’t bothered before with this.....

 

Maybe they should allow platoons, but maybe limited to 2 people? ( as least it would be more fun with a friend )

 

Cheers..... Rant over, nothing to see here folks!

 

GG & good luck to all

Am I the only one still bothered by the fact you still need to achieve near 6k points to finish the rank battles? Fewer rewards, no silver bonus, most merc contracts people are working on can't even be worked on during the rank battles. Maps are a joke, communication between teammates just ends in a yelling match and vulgar spewing that gets nobody anywhere. The XP payout is just stupidly broken. So many things can be listed here.

EVOLVE RANKED BATTLES or remove it. Your lack of ability to do something with ranked is disturbing. Added ranked mode for clans, ok that's a start, now go from there. If the next rank battle is even remotely similar to this one I feel sorry for the people you're paying to develop this game and should really consider reevaluating what your goals for this game are

Good point. I have been playing with high silver multiplier premiums. No repair costs so great for earning. Did not think to use green crews. Will try that tomorrow.

I made it to platinum, was 100pts from whatever league was next before I got bored.

The points system is just as bad as always and there's no silver to be made.

My only main concern with rb still remains and that’s the scoring system.

Called it quits today.  We all know the problems occurring during RB, so no reason to trash them.  Anyway...  Reached  Platinum and don’t want to deal with the frustration any longer.  The last 4 matches I had double the damage to my teammates, but continually placed second because someone would get a little extra spot or assist damage.  Some like, but most don’t like the point system.  It’s been brought up many times, yet WG fails to act on it.  Participated for the Clan, but this is the last until a revamped point system is put in place.

Where have you been? Console lacks knowledge, skill and ability... period!

 

ps... this not a game development company. Game development companies do not remove servers, they increase them. Well, the competent and knowledgeable ones do.

If this foolish team point system can't be overhauled, then I suggest that the top player on the winning team get 200 points. That way there is more drive to do well and get top and the top player is insulated from their next inevitably tragic team loss.

Tanks must always push the battle, maneuver terrain, gain position, coordinate, and devastate the enemy.

Play like a TANK not a pill box! 

Move away from bad engagements and towards favourable ones.

Relocating does not make you a coward loser.

Dont bother.

Xp earnings were nerfed hard long ago. Grinding crews or stock tanks in ranked is a waste of time.

You can do it faster and with less frustration in WS even after it was nerfed.

You're right in the whole context. I love the ops they are running, but it's in the sense of reducing rewards for ranked from previous iterations.

The points need to be fixed, which would greatly reduce frustration and the luck factors. You have a system that is punitive towards a team loss but you have zero control on the team you field and can do little to carry. Carries happen on occasion but less at T8 than T10. The alternative is to let us field our own teams and go against others. 

 

To make the system congruent WG would either need to make individual progression more rewarding based on dmg and/or standing at the end (usually the same thing), or allow players to field teams. Others have suggestions models that should be attempted.
