I think hopey was noting that it was odd that a 50%er would dominate ranked.

 

I guess having a 279 and chieftain will help tho.

Season 2:

 

The lack of EBR in this mode (around one every few games) this early in the meta is yet again a testament of how this mode is not about winning. Since clearly the "OMG WHEELIES TOO STRONK PLS NERF" is not causing them high usage here.

 

Or maybe it was like this all along just I didn't notice last season due to spamming EBR.

Well WG said Wheelie will be matched with another Wheelie but no idea if this match was an exception.

Out of curiosity is the qualification queue separate from the divisional one? Numbers seemed to drop way off and not sure if it's because the pubbies have already given up or just that not many have finished qual yet.

Personally I stopped after finishing qual.

 

Need to wait for the 3 MoE players to climb higher up the ladder first.

As I was already saying, there is a lack of scout tanks this season. At least among the hardcore players. So the MM cannot work properly.

 

I mean, who would want to play a tank that often gets bottom 5 XP during a win and a guaranteed Chevron loss during a defeat? At least arties get to keep their Chevs on a loss.

If my math works correctly, you get 1 XP for every hit or arty splash received.

 

 

What's the point of stopping an enemy lemmingtrain so you team's can win?

 

But doubt they will be changing to winning-based RB anytime soon.

 

Oh and in case you're wondering why so little damage, that lemming consisted of 279 and at least 2 Chieftains + a whole lot more. That's why it became a HE fight midway.

Yea EBR is good for the current meta

 

 

That 1.1k battle is due to the other team not having EBR

 

Now look at the map and let that sink in

Shame there's no hype being built for the tank. I have a bad feeling they haven't really put much effort into balancing it. But I guess we'll see in a couple weeks.

Yeah, I really am not a fan of try hard tier 10 meta, I am gritting my teeth through it for the reward tank, but I am not sure whether it is worth it. Like Ezz mentioned, there doesn't seem to have been any hype, adjustment of balance or information in general on this reward tank since the beginning...

 

The problem with Ranked isn't so much that it is hard/highly competitive.... It's more that the correct meta for this mode, just isn't very enjoyable. 

 

I think it is the view range saturation that really kills it  for me rather than the woeful balance (although that doesn't help).

Part of the issue with view range is that the game and people's crews are pretty developed at this stage - especially in their preferred 10s and 8 prems. With things like sit awareness and recon usually coming after a few other skills there's been a gradual vision creep as a result. When once you might see a few people with SA now i'd guess there are plenty of people with both. Hell there was even a time when some people didn't have SS... (ahh the BBs...)

 

That and in ranked you don't meet the numpties who are clueless about vision as you do in the lower tiers. People know the vision lanes. People know the bushes. Vision play is simply that much harder.

 

As to the tank... 320 alpha with low dpm... on a 105mm. Literally all they needed to do to bring it in line would be to give it 360 alpha as with most other 105s. Reload could remain the same and the dpm would be pretty close to class standard (2900). Even 360 could make it viable (2700) ... but 320... oof 2400 on a 9. C.f. 55a with a smidge over 3k. Its armor or mobility or something would want to be good. I just hope it's not another AE1 that is basically a shitter conq with a free large repair kit.

 

Edit: did they change the reload? Just checked the in game stats and using rammer and food it looks to have been bumped up a smidge. It's now looking like about 2800 which is only a tad below the leo pta and e50 and only a couple hundred below the 55a. Still low alpha and meh dpm on a sniper is not a great recipe. The 430.2 has about 300 better dpm but low alpha and it's not like those run rampant. Mobility looks meh but haven't seen the ground resistances, and soft stats are an unknown. VR and camo look good however. I'd still prefer it with more alpha even if they left the same DPM. Ie 390 then tone down the reload a bit.

What I have never really understood about view range is why it should go up so significantly just because tanks are higher tier.

 

All the tanks in this game rely for vision on non-image enhanced mechanisms. No night vision, infra-red, no radar, nothing  other than glass optics.

 

So while you could argue that there might be some improvement as you get to more modern tanks, due to better glass optics; fundamentally for situational awareness we are talking about the  mk1 eyeball and perhaps factor in the height of the tank.

 

Then you just add on crew skills, Optics and/or Binocs (if fitted).

 

There really is no good reason for tier 10 tanks to have  much better view range than say tier 6 or 7. Especially given the maps don't get bigger with higher tiers particularly. 

 

WG should calculate tank view range taking into account all the skills that could then be added and nerf it across all the  higher tiers except for tanks that actually are designed to scout.

 

Wheelies may then need some further nerfage otherwise it would be an indirect buff to them to have other tank classes view range nerfed.

 

This would make non- wheelie high tier light tanks more relevant again.
