You can just go ahead and ignore my almost 2k battles, my WR is only 45%. Ive recently hit 100% crew on my LTTB, and was wondering if this tank is worth it/ what kind of tactics I should expect playing rating. Well, besides salt, of course.

Heavy tanks, lots and lots of heavy tanks.

 

Also don't expect your team to be aggressive or play like they normally would, they are all afraid of their rating going down.


This is too fancy I don't know what to put here does bbcode even work

Rigged matches.

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 have never played a rating battle.  Not much point to it, unless you're in the top 1% of players.

Immensely long wait times to play heavy-heavy matches and struggle against a stacked deck to maybe earn a few pennies' worth of gold or boosters.  That's the optimistic view.

If you are in the top 10 you have to wait 2hrs+ sometimes. Teams are worse than regularly. If you are below 60%, don't ****ing play rating battles. I'm tired of having to actually try and lose with 7k dmg 2 out of 3 times.

Forced Supremacy. The bad players from pub matches are now truly awful as the divide between competent and horrible is accentuated due to certain players spamming rating battles. Extra XP per battle which is nice. Not sure why anyone would think it is radically different.

[BRSKT] may or may not be recruiting you.

I did the twister season for the first time actually trying to do ratings.  My goal was to reach 4k so I could earn a special camo they offered if you finished at that level.

 

 

The good

-The games are just like anything else.  Stupid players rushing in.  There is not a huge learning curve.  

-Your rating is based on how you do as much as winning.  A good player will only lose a small amount from their rating in a loss and then get a good boost in a win.  Your rating will slowly go up as long as you play well.

-I never experienced cheating and honestly some of the rating battles I had stacked with pramo, pncr, etc were some of the most fun.  Those games take patience and mistake free play to do well.

 

Issues. 

-Your rating does not mean you get away from bad players.  As your rating goes up what usually happens is the game gives you an equally horrible player to balance the teams off.  You have to carry harder to make up for your ever worsening players. 

-Wait times.  I have had to wait to up to 10 minutes for a game.  Tiers 7 and 8 fill faster.

- There are just not enough players who play this.  You play the same players over and over again during a session.

W.A. What you describe in Ratting battles, is what its like in pub matches too. Same MM, RNG.

The game are pretty much the same.  But good to great players get their rating to go up because they don't lose as much in a loss or can even gain a small amount and then get a decent increase with a win.

 

The issues is that with the system for MM in the ratings battles there are the "balancing" issues.  Regular games don't have to balance teams out.  As I got closer to 4k in ratings I was getting stuck with more and more players who were down in the 2k area to "balance" the teams.  It actually made it hard to win because I had to carry harder.  I had to not only do well for myself but make up for the 2 and sometimes 3 really bad players intentionally put on my team.  The balancing of teams never got rid of the bad players like you would think.  I rarely got a game where the average was over 4k for both teams even though that is where I ended up getting my rating at.

 

The issue is small player pool.  There are not enough players doing the rating seasons to fill games with "equal" rating so the balance good players with really bad players.  If there were a couple hundred playing at a time it might work out that way but there were usually around 20 in the Q.  The MM was just trying to get things close enough so it could start a game.  I had games where there were a 500 point difference between the two team's rating.  MM still could not get things perfect because there were so few players to chose from to make things even.

 

It was a learning experience and I am glad I went through it.  Just don't think I will do another one.
