I played Ranked this weeked just to grind out the end of the Machine contract. Once again controller chewing levels of frustration.

 

Took me 29 games to get to Silver and then endless hours stuck in Gold with games like this. Constantly coming top in my team on a loss and making no progress or worse coming second because some HESH thrower nukes a Type 5 for all it's health.

 

 

Finally gave up at Master.

 

Special shouts to The Ghost Of Gera (Carrying like a god) and John Arrowsmith. Both of whom are infinitely better than me on their worst day.

 

Finally No Thanks to the Maus player who was on my team and AFK for three games in a row.

 

TLDR: Ranked is bumgravy and akin to Quake Rocket Arena. Next time I'll play something else.

Agree, was again a very frustrating weckend, only sum up some silver and XP for Hardcase contract was good, but for a special 2,5 day event it was too lass, stuck in gold btw. It would be so easy, change the system to 1,2,3,4,5,7 point System, last one gets no points, and for both teams, and winning team extra 10 points, and end goal 1000 points. Very easy and not frustrating and perfect for all

This was my weekend. Some of these players I can't imagine how they got to tier 10.

100% agree.  I gave up at Senior master.  It took forever.  To be honest, I played too much and was too tired to play, making stupid decisions from the frustration.  After an hour of winning 50% and going no where, I finally gave up.

 

On a positive note, I did earn about 4 million in silver over the weekend (before the rewards).

Also, as that screen shot shows, another name for ranked should be World of Tank Destroyers.

To be fair we did win that one. I went and sat on Light House Hill and lit them all up while dodging the incoming HESH. Soooo much Assisted Damage with everyone one shotting each other. :trollface:

One more observation:

 

Every once in awhile I would look at the "ladder" so see how others were doing.  Only about a quarter of those on my friends list (and they are all WOT players) even made an attempt..  Of those that made an attempt, about have made it to bronze before giving up, and the others made it to silver before giving up.  Only one other person on list was as psycho as me to try to get any further.  By the time I gave up, he too was in Senior Master jockeying around the same point total.


 

Hopefully the revised point system will be better.  I fear that the point system will be better but then they will double the requirements negating the improvements.

Did you. I hope I didn't go full potato in those games. :teethhappy:

 

Were you in the Karella one with the French Chieftain who shoved my IS-7 out of the way to get at a Hundo backed by an E4 and Waffle? He died for no damage sideways on in front of the hundo and made it hull down. Then started swearing at us all like it was our fault.

So why make it so difficult to get to GM? A 2,5 day event should be fun and not frustration, make it easier, make adding points to sum up and use for multiple trade in and Clan point System, so all make Sense. More players and more fun and big new point would be to make 5 new special maps exclusively for ranked, be proud make us shine, ty

For example make Cologne map, Athen map, Italian mountains map, new Caribbean Island with pirate stuff or Grand Canyon.
