Seems to me that ranked season 2 just discourages the average players from joining in

63 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I was just reading through the info about ranked season 2 and it seems to me as an average player that the changes to

rewards is just going to discourage the average players from getting involved at all.

 

As a 51% WR player in randoms i found that in ranked season 1 it was hard work to consistently gain ranks as it was a

case of one step forward one step back.

 

Now with season 2 they are making it even harder to gain ranks and rewarding the people who do gain ranks ie the high

level players with even more bonds which in turn will widen the gap even further between those players and the average

players as they will be using a lot more improved equipment.

 

Is it just me who thinks this will just piss off the wider audience?

 

In my opinion they should set different leagues based on the skill level of players using maybe PR, or WN8 or something similar?

so at least the players will come up against players who will be comparable in skill level?

 

I will be interested to see if you guys feel the same way?

 

Regards.


Paul

I see where you are coming from, and i struggled in ranked battles too. however, your reward should be directly correlated to your skill level, and therefore it wouldn't be fair to have different leagues. a 52%er could ace the 49-52% sector, as a broad example, while a 53%er would suck in the 53%-56% league- the rewards wouldn't be fair for every player. the rank system is meant to reward greater skill, but it didn't work out well last time bc wg don't know how to implement good ideas properly.

I felt the rewards weren't too bad the first time around, so why should they be changed? Wut?

i think the no. 1 thing they should have done is remove arty from it, i would have been pumped

and rebalance the type 5 and maus more XD

 

Regards,

some guy on the sea server who quit in rank two in the first season.

I understand what you mean but why should already superior players get improved equipment which just makes them even better? give them gold skins or unique camos for their tanks, not better equipment??

How can average players hope to have a chance when the already better players have hardware advantages as well as skill advantage?

Ill be honest, ranked seems to be designed from the beginning to be a competitive mode for high level play. Sure they let average players in, but to me it seems designed with the intention at least, of rewarding skill. 

I cant argue with the good get further ahead. But there needs to be a carrot to dangle for people to actually play the mode. 

But rest assured, its just as cancer for good players as it is for bad.

Ranked is trash anyways. Quit in the first season early on probably won't even touch season 2.

Trouble is you cant add a game mode for a game only aimed at the top 3% of players, there is very little end game content in this game as it is so to alienate 95+% of your players from a gqame mode is rediculous.. especially when the best players already have tournaments and WGL to amuse them.

No offense here but why would an avg player even need to be able to win consistently above his "rank"? You could have won that equipment last season if you played well enough. Your issue here is basicly that you didnt and someone else did and now you want to win to get it but its (arguably) a bit harder.

You are saying that you want different leagues but what you actually want is everyone is a winner scenario. Ranked is exactly what you asked for its just not what you want. Everyone plays in their own rank.

Dont take this personally its just what it is.

Or just play pubs in tier 10's and earn bonds that way. Ranked mode is cancer regardless of skill levels. Its poorly thought out, poorly implemented, forced into shit map design, and will continue to be some of the most stale gameplay you'll ever find in WOT

So new rules that punish camping to be top3 on a loss are bad for average players? Sorry if I'm not sad about it. Average players should not be able to get the same rewards as the best players. Want to get better rewards? Get better. It's not super hard. Despite not having time to play consistently thanks to wotlabs I went from a guy who could barely pull 50% in t7 games to a guy who can pull 56-57% consistently on t8s, t9s and some t10s. So if you want rewards read what people post, watch Zeven, maybe replay reviews from a few other players + replays from top players like Skill, Fame Guys, Carbon, Crab and others.

My issue is they shouldn't be giving out improved equipment as rewards (in the form of excessive bonds) which gives

the already better players an unfair additional advantage... how is that fair?

But then i would expect someone who is one of the people benefiting from this to defend it.

If you want to be seen to be better than others more power to you but why should you have a distinct advantage? rather

than just getting something that's cosmetic to flex with?

You think its fair to have faster reload, better view range, better camouflage than average people? if you do then your just

a fucking moron to be honest and my point is lost on you

It's not fair. Even most good players agree that was a shit move by WG.

As for ranked mode, it is awful gameplay and there's almost no reason for anyone, let alone good players, to play it.

I'm not going to throw away millions just to play a shittier. I have told them in question thingy at the end season to fix the economy and i am sure they wont. 

Still they should make a mode that made players with equal skill face one another. But does anyone think this how it should work? No and this is because there is arty which denies skill both from who plays it and who receives it. If they want a skill mode arty should not be allowed. Then we can talk about the rest, like rewards ect.

So to op play arty and get trough effortlessly

Is it fun? No, its not. So don't do it, and definitely don't buy credit packs to do it. I'm "grinding" my bonds in public battles. Its very slow, estimated at something like 800 battles per piece of equipment - but I don't actually give a shit, because I am enjoying my battles and breaking even (or better) on credits.

I'll probably get rank 1 or 2 per week or whatever, just for the extra bonds. Minimal stress...

Please do a stress check-in when you play 90 minutes and don't get a chevron.

News flash: life is not fair at all. Always better and bigger guys get more and better things than Joe average. Do I defend improved equipment? Yes because they're not overpowered and still skill is the most important thing. And yes again 'cuz finally best players get something. Like after 7 years ffs! Still Wot is way better in punishing good performance than rewarding it - yeah, I'm talking about XVM focus and arty cancer. 

Why pubs defend XVM and arty (tools to punish good players) but attack anything that works for top players and it has to be earned with a good gameplay?

Just my 2 cents but as a shitlord it was really hard to get Rank 5. Now they've made it harder to get to Rank 5 or whatever. The shitters just aren't going to play.

Just my opinion.

Lol you say about XVM focus but the truth is more people will avoid engaging a blue / purple player as they don't  want their game cut short

You are the epitome of ignorance.

 

Someone should force you to play a 3K/60%/30000 games overall account for 2 weeks. You 'll beg to get back to your shitlord account.
