The current system in place is utterly moronic. This system doesn't reward good play, all it rewards is who is able to spam the most battles. There are players that aren't even winning 45% of their battles over 5k rating. All you have to do is 1k dmg in an OP tank for 1k battles. This shouldn't be rewarded. An afk will only lose 10 rating points. -10 for doing absolutely nothing. This is a great system. For a loss the starting amount should be -40. And as you work your way up chunks are taken out of the -40. +3 for every 250 at tier 8, 350 at tier 9, and 450 at tier X. A kill should only be worth +3. And a high caliber should be worth an extra 10-15. Same should be used for a win except an automatic +20 or +25 should be awarded for winning. It shouldn't easy to maintain a high rating but rather a high degree of difficulty.

The idea of a "competitive" mobile game is almost as big of a joke as Star Wars Battlefront 2 and EA's monetization of video games. The fact the idea even exists is sad and shows how stupid some people can be.

 

Ratings shouldn't be taken seriously and isn't even worth the effort of grinding. Stop complaining.

Exp and credit bonuses that is a difference. The variety of vehicles is even less.

No, it is no use fixing something that broken in order to entice people to actually play a gamemode that they spent 2 years working on. Its supposed to win operate per a similar fashion of other more successful franchises as of late, examples include PUBG and COD. Both of which have a decent system in place. You spam all you want but unless you are in the bottom leagues there is no progression. _sRt8 iS a CoPeTiTiVe ClAn.

Some idiots can't understand the notion of time. Because 2011 comes after 2014.

Excuse me, _STR8 almost qualified for Twiser. That's a greater achievement in "competitive" play in this game than you can ever claim, bub.

I carried my team, DD-X in CW2 and came the closest to gving PRAMO their only loss. In all 3 games, I did over 3k dmg and on our win which was a 4,6k dmg game. I stopped playing CW after that due to someone on the team deciding to throw. I helped recreate PNCR to a point where it became notable. I left tourney play altogether to having an actual job and later on going to school on the governments dollar. And that PNCR clan that I was one of the three that revived it actually went onto twister. I was also asked to rejoin to tryout for a spot on their tourney team, which I said **** no due to them attempting to steal my account from me and using it to rig. Not to mention I illegally played on a team for CW3 giving a bunch of 40%ers their only win in a tier 9 tank and changed their tactics because they were horrid. Obviously, you know nothing nor can you even claim half of that.

Obviously, majority here do not understand what a league based on rating is supposed to accomplish. It is not meant to be an "esports" mode, when mentioning that is absurd. Nor can there be any incentive given to playing that mode if it is not perfected in the first place. Once the system is actually working properly then there can be an incentive. With a better system which is evident in the PC version then they can given out a real incentive such as reward vehicles, which are usually premiums. This gamemode is supposed to be skill based where better players are ranked based on their performance and not their ability to spam a massive amount of battles with subpar performance due to the system not penalizing enough for poor play on a loss.

Okay Morph, what’s your plan? How do you propose to rebalance Ratings? Is it a case of changing the amount of rating change on the winning team? The losing team? Both? Or do you think a new ratings metric is needed?

That’s not how the morphman works. Morphman, cries about blitz. Morphman doesn’t get sarcasm. Morphman calls people stupid. But morphman sure as hell doesn’t have ideas how to be constructive.

I've never seen the point of ratings battles.  I guess some people like it for grinding tanks without affecting WR, but I don't care about that.  The only other reason for ratings battles to exist is the ratings number, which is just another number for the stat-obsessed among us to obsess over.  So I do agree, if WG wants people to play ratings battles they need to give an incentive that I care about.

If you want to play without a ding to WR it's good.

 

If you want to grind a tank it's good.

 

If you want to make more credits on a win it's good.

 

If you want a nice camo it's good.

 

If you want the slight possibility of fewer bots on your team it's good.

 

If you like seeing a lot of the same people it's good.

 

 

Ratings isn't bad. I just don't like the wait for it.
