I feel you,sometimes I want the rewards from rating seasons but I just can’t stand the battles.Thankfully,the leagues have practically no prescence among players so I doubt you’ll get hate for being in Silver League lol.

If you play better then you would lose less. It’s a very simple strategy.

And another amazingly insightful comment from the forum's resident funnyman!  Thanks for cracking that egg of knowledge on us!

I actually miss his comments when he’s not around for awhile. I must confess, I look up his comment history periodically so I can get some good chuckles. Most think he’s a nuisance, but I actually enjoy his humor. 

 

Similar to Cletus and Blartch

Oh yeah he's hilarious!  Cletus and Blartch though, those guy's are just nuisance's who need to find something productive to do with their time.

Keep that mental image in mind when you realize he only plays while dropping a deuce.

Well I did forewarn that ratings would be rather different before it happened and from what I can tell what i predicted is certainly the case.... Happy tanking lol

Ran some ratings, because why not.  I'ze bored.

 

Couple things I noticed....

 

- next to no wait times now (principle reason they did this)

- games are heavy with heavies, a few ISU's, 54 Lights, some other randos

- because of this, the WZ-120GTFOP2W actually ISN'T quite as strong as in pub games... or at least it takes a touch more thought.  Because it's facing almost all high-pen heavy guns, the armor isn't quite as impervious.

- also because of this, I'm finding lights have an advantage in securing the win... because they give at least one team a set of eyes.

 

Seriously, I dumped most of my games trying to out-duh the red heavies driving either a heavy or the WZ120GFYS, but it all became simple shot-trading vs. face-huggers galore in back alleyways (I think Cletus has a quote about this?).  Switching to the LeKpz41, I started racking up a string of carries exploiting unprotected flanks preoccupied with the ever-present heavy scrum.

 

TL;DR - If what you're doing isn't working, try something else.

Great summation there Blartch. Yea its basically a scrum or a trading shots kind of brawls mostly. I often go with the flow and pick an obscenely strong heavy and proceed to brawl away. If you have a semblance of a team, ( yea I know its ridiculous but we can hope) , you can usually easily out brawl the face hugging, shot trading hordes of neer do wells and try hards. I had great success with KpfPz, especially when top tier. Charioteering was great sport before it's nerf, if not very sporting in of itself. You could farm like crazy. Great points about the light tanking, though few can pull this off. I haven't run the RU too much in ranked, but have used the Type 62 and had a blast when they allowed tier 7. Good meds are very effective too for the reasons you mentioned. You can spot em up, and change flanks when things get too hot. Or read the map as you did, and get behind the brawling masses who never will see you, or better yet IF they do, I find almost every tank will overreact and turn to you.

 

If you have a semi coherent team ( yea I know IF), they will wreck them all fast. The ability to relocate and attack from a stronger position is so big in this game. I think if you continue to try ratings battles you will enjoy it greatly. When it goes right it can be some of the most enjoyable battles in Blitz. When it goes wrong......yea same old stuff we all deal with in regular battles.
