So, as far as I know, nobody is in Diamond League yet. The wait times are atrocious, the teams are as trash as ever, and the rewards are measley.

 

I honestly cannot justify spending more time waiting in queue and winning less just so I can have more so called "good games" and get a few containers that have nothing but boosters.

 

In its current state, Ratings is a nice idea, but not viable at all. I won't be playing it until they significantly up the rewards, and decrease the penalties of losing.

Although I agree, I am a sucker for rewards and will be trying to play more ratings to get the rewards.

It doesn't seem to be any different, maybe even worse with the player base than in regular battles. I feel its like being a good waiter/waitress and having to share your tips with the waiter who doesn't do anything. If I do say 2500 damage and Joe Schmo does 300, the disparity (if any) in ratings points is minimal. I get 25, but he gets 24 just for showing up? If you don't contribute, you don't share in the prize money. This is no different than giving the last place team a trophy just for participating.

 

Another note, why is there a 23 second countdown awaiting players when the players are already there?

why don't all players just boycott ratings battles?

Seems like they took a giant step backwards from the first season.

It was decent. Some of the best times I had were when I happened to run into a series of unicum toons or clan countdown sessions. Other than that, it was no different or worse than random. Now it’s exceedingly worse than random and increasingly toxic.

Sometimes, you just gotta sit back and watch them all burn. Don't forget to bring popcorn. You're going to need a snack.

Rating is so bad I had a comparable rating with DMG, I can’t even tie his shoes in this game and our ratings are close. I’ve also seen a number of other super uni’s with rating close to mine. I’m not even half as good as these guys and our ratings are similar , what a joke.

The first time they were a novelty - different, with somewhat unknown rewards.

 

Then we played them.

 

Longer wait times

Worse teams (certainly not any better)

Meh, prizes

 

Then "off-season" -  whatever that was

 

Now -- new season

 

Longer wait times in the rated queue

Worse teams (well - they certainly are not better)

Meh, prizes -- Crates?  Yeah baby!  Gimme some gamblin' chips !

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I don't like how they're so focused on WR. If I do 3k damage and win, but Mr. Yolo over here does 0, we get around the same points. Same for a defeat: Let's say I try really hard and do 2.5k damage and lose. Again, some potato on the other team who does 0 or whatever gets all the points! Doesn't make sense. They should assign points on a more individual sense: points assigned (or taken away) based on your damage, spotting, damage ratio, etc.

So far, a general rule of thumb is that all good suggestions will be ignored, while all garbage suggestions will get implemented 10x worse

 

Just look at how long we've been waiting for a platoon indicator light and how morons complaining have succesfully gotten several balanced tanks nerfed to the ground

This would work out a lot better than the current fixed theme. The losing team should probably all be negative (proportionally of course) though, otherwise there will be a quick inflation in ratings.

How about, top person on the winning team gets 28 points, then each person down the list based on XP gets 4 less.

 

First in XP: 28

2nd: 24

3rd: 20

Last in XP: 0

 

Then the losing team does it backwards but negative,

Last in XP: -28

3rd in XP: -12

First in XP: 0

You tell me, then we will both know...

 

Seriously I see extra spare parts as the only benefit.  

   That and measuring EPEN -- can't discount that ;)

I played most of mine with the Rudy.  Did okay, not great, just okay.  I didn't see any improvement in team quality at all.  It was just more of the same but with a longer wait time to get in a match.
