World of Tanks is considering preventing reward vehicles from playing ranked – here’s why I think it’s a good idea!
World of Tanks is a Free 2 Play online game published by Wargaming and is available as a free download here:
Use invite code “QBWOT” to get a T-127 with a 100% crew, a gun laying drive, improved vents and a toolbox.

Why not just use high skill cap tanks or moderately high in rank battles only for each type of tank, people might have different opinions on a skill cap on a tank so use the average rate of performance increase of a tank as a standard. Heck they could have a weakly rotary for what tanks are allowed to be used in rank battles per-week. Maybe they could also make sure there are more rewards for players that do well in a high skill cap tank than low skill cap. Problem through how they determine a tanks skill cap 🙂 not my problem…
I would participate only if there is no premium rounds in the game cause its incredibly unfair towards free-to-play players like me. So thats it and I am not seeing it coming…
wot is not the right game to “test yourself”… too many variables
Complaining about being op tank At the same time gold spamming QB never changes
It’s not the tanks that are going to discourage people from random battles, it’s the matchmaking that more than not makes the score 5 – 15 , don’t overthink things.
Real reason what is preventing players to play ranked battle is 2 artys per team in every single game.
I tried SO HARD to get this tank and now when I finaly get it, all of a sudden I cant play it and all my effort is GONE.
there should be a switch that can toggle to play with them or not and if you choose to turn it on and you are a tech tree tank you can get extra chevrons
Im not playing ranked cause of chiftain and this 279e game destroyer.
i lost 2.000.000 in ranked 2end divi.rank 14…….
wg dont CARE!!!
I don’t play the entire game because of these tanks anymore. Just fuck this game if the company doesn’t even care
I would give it a go if the tank mentioned, EBR and SPG is banned.
tried ranked a few times when it was new, just as garbage then as now – never going back
I don’t care for ranked and I wouldn’t care for it even if they removed these vehicles from it. I still think that the 279e, the 907 and the 260 need to be nerfed hard. The chieftain is really strong but you can defeat it if you know what you’re doing. Most importantly the 279e needs to be nerfed. That thing is so broken it pisses me off. The 260 needs a armor nerf as well. Give it the T10s armor and it’s fine. Same goes for the 907. Nerf the armor on that thing. The fact that I can face hug that thing in my T10 and I can’t pen it’s upper plate with heat is ridiculous.
Ranked battles should prohibit any premium previledges. 😄
Look at counter strike ranked, This is a questionable example BUT, no one gets different guns. No one gets a different amount of life, or armor, They all have the tools at their disposal, There isn’t any reward you can take into a match made game in counter strike (I know bad example) and demolish the enemy team with, imposing an “unfair” advantage. I know these games share no traits. The only thing CS is doing better then WoT, is having a fair battle, with only guns you can buy and pickup, There is no gun or item which gives you an “edge”, Or more health or the ability to not take damage.
This tank tho, defines an “edge” I stopped playing WoT because there’s no point to play competitively with the current state of ranked. It’s completely UNBALANCED due to overly powerful reward tanks, which as YOU said, only a small portion of players will EVER be able to get. So yeah, WoT might look more appealing to an average joe like me, if it was ONLY tech tree tanks in ranked.
I imagine what you’re saying is going to make some people REALLY salty tho QB, cuz of the hard work they’ve put in, to absolutely rag doll people in ranked or normal battles, And to be fair, they’re not entirely unjustified. The culprit here is no one but Wargames… People use what they have at their disposal… But… not everyone gets to use those tools. That is a problem in itself when you’re talking about a competitive scene…
Imagine soccer, or football, imagine the other team having more players, cuz thats essentially what a tank like this is, It’s so strong it could be considered 2 even 3 tanks. It bounces t10 TD shots. Nothing should do that, especially when it’s FULLY exposed. sure hull downed, or side scrapping, but not facerolling straight in… What Wargaming has done, is ruined what you call competitive, instead they made it, a mode for the extremely broken and unbalanced. Because let’s face it… That’s all that’s winning. Are these broken, unbalanced, dumb to fight tanks.
If there would be no Object 279 e and no Donkerer I think I would try out the ranked battles. But I have to say these tanks are way more powerfull than they should be. And my biggest issue all in all in the game is the constant GOLD spamming. In any tier, in any situation, in any type of tank. I want to see a limited percentage of ammunation of gold rounds. Inside ranked too. I just used to the bit more powerfull Obj. 252Us in the random battles. I used to the fact the soviet tank are usually better than any other.(goddamn why they having such a good turret armour on every single tank) There are facts in the game. But I would really try myself out in the Ranked mode, but the first and foremost problem is again, the balance and WG just cannot make it, like of these examples. Once I loved this game, now I just want to finish it.
I think that it would be much better if there would be only techtree tanks.
Hi Quakky baby. Those bloody tanks should be banned altogether. Every game when you have those meta tanks in is ruined because they are so stupidly OP
i just dont play because of the vehicle class requirements, depending on the battle situation im unable to fulfil my tanks class role, so i honestly cbf playing it, also its constant gold spam, which normally i wouldnt complain about but in ranked your tryna get ranked by skill and not by who can have more weakpoints to aim at because they can afford it
They should just let tech 🌲 vehicles.
waiting the return of glory days of e5
I don’t think the chief is OP at all, the hull armor is ehh and people complain about it being hull down OP yet many tanks are like the IS7, kran, Badger etc are the same hull down… IS7 hull down is nearly impossible to pen yet the Chief has atleast a commanders hatch that can be penned plus in chiefs you get focused by arty like no other. however I do feel 279 should only face 10s. It’s not that difficult to pen just have to know where to shoot it. And this vid showing him on a ridge mowing over these players cause the players were dumb shooting at a 279 above you. If your experienced you know to hold the shell until he over commits cause he has horrible gun depression so he has to come down to shoot you making his armor flat. That’s why in the vid when he went down to shoot the Patton he was penned by him. I do think it’s dumb tho that you need to fire gold to pen a 279 frontally, you don’t for a Chief.
Letting these reward vehicles in ranked is a joke, it is like rewarding the already best players in the game with something completelly overpowered, just to be sure they keep playing
I oneshotted one of these today.
Once again.. yes, the tank is overpowered, but…QB is only shooting gold. Front of E100 turret? Gold.. M48 Patton? Gold.. a fucking Grille 15? Have some gold… the game would be a lot more playable and enjoyable for everyone if gold was removed completely. Heavy tanks could actually do some tanking and not have someone punch through their strongest armor with a gold round. Meds would be forced to flank, rather than load that gold round a hurray, no aiming needed… Gold is the reason I pretty much stopped playing the game… its pretty difficult to go “yeah, that seems fair” when you are hull down in an IS-7, ( the strongest turret in the game) and get a nice 1150 hello right next to your gun mantlet from a gold spammin Jagpz…
Not to shit in anyone’s cereal but if a tank is in the game you should play it in any game mode and if the tank breaks the gameplay then it shouldn’t be in the game at all
imagine if WG would listen to QB
WOT would be such a beautiful place lol
Just add chieftain mk.6 techtree to wot and all players will have good hulldown tank, alternative to superconq. 🙂
I don’t like how QB presents this tank like its completely idiot proof. Against Tier 8s it definitely is, but against Tier 10s a lot of players would do terrible with it
arta is more toxic and frustrating than a chieftain or 279e
why not make the vehicles available to play ranked battles specific for that game mode, like they have done on other special events. like the double turreted tanks for the Halloween event a few years ago. you could have a choice of 2 or 3 vehicles to chose from which would be fair to everyone playing.
yes i would
Great video! needed to be said. Also like the hairdo.
QB the only 279 player who not get in arty focus and who dont have to fight on these maps again chieftains obj 279 is in this game mode not overpowerd it is much stronger than a is7 or a 113 but arty is balancing every fucking tank in this and every other game mode …
Just rebalance the tanks.
If it is not possible to nerf premium or reward vehicles because a part of the player base is going to flame, which is in my opinion also debatable, just buff all other tanks to be as good as the overpowered once.
Beside that, every tank should be accessible for the competitiveness of the game. Just compare WoT to other esport games. Hearthstone or League of Legends would not be successfull at all, if cards or champions would only be reachable for some players.
(E-)Sport relies on compareability.
Just a question for gamers out there, can you play this on a hip envy 13 with quad core i5 and a Nvidia gpu?
Yes i would ! I would play or try ranked more, i really hate it now , for the reason you talk about in this video
I’ve participated in rank battles 1 and 2 but the 3rd is hilarious. I want to play this mode and I got the tanks for it but the reward tanks messing it up. I’ve got the obj 260, but I think the S. Conq is better. The game is a total failure if one team have 3 of those OP tanks and the other team has 0. And my answer is a big YES! Pls let only tech tree tanks participate in ranked.
I’ve got 34k battles and I willing to play ranked if they get rid of those tanks from the ranked.
when i play this tank EVERYONE ist shooting right through it
And ban from pubbies
Obj 279 (e) is annoying. So is Donqueror. However, in comparison how the combo of 2x artilery + EBR brakes the game is a different story. I’ve played ranked EXTENSIVELY, and I’ve seen how well teams deal with Donquerors. With EBRs – nobody can deal. It inflicts absolute panic in teams. Random games are more sane, people start doing crazy things, in order not to get spotted, and then slapped by artilery.
And then when you put the burden of sniping EBR onto yourself, to help the team, you go for it. You hit him once – super hard shot – you just shot the wheel. He runs away and spots the other flank. He comes back – you hit him again – OOPS bounced off the turret, because he’s not a 700 wn8 guy who shows his whole body, but a sane player, who peeks ridges with his turret only. It’s insane how bad the EBR is, and the fact that people brush it off as “oh I wont talk about EBR because I might want to play it myself some day and have THAT fun” is astounding to me.
I remember the days, trying to use LTTB with Quality oil and Removed Speed Governors, choosing lighter gun, and Equipment, just to be as light as possible. Those runs in LTTB required skill. Here – nope, just push W and left right left right, nobody can kill you, YOU’RE A GOD. Redesigned maps actually mean that there are very few bush locations where you can double bush, and if you’re trying to double bush an EBR – good luck trying to aim for it through bushes. So your only choice is to get spotted when you’re shooting the EBR.
Then comes the better part – people stop shooting it all-together. Which results in EBRs just driving in front of teams without a worry. Every single game, if it’s a slightly better EBR player, the story is the same – #1 place in the team – Donqueror, #2 EBR, #3 Arty. It’s disgusting. It renders TD class and medium classes almost useless.
No, I won’t play ranked anyway. For the same reason I don’t play tier 10 tanks, the amount of prem ammo shot at me which makes any tank weakspot knowledge irrelevant.
This tank is the reason why I still play the game, doesn’t matter how long it takes
Would you throw your credits down the drain to play full tier 10 games with full gold ammo? Isn’t this a rhetorical question?
Fuck! I’m gonna cum
I’ve stopped play world of tanks because is not fun anymore.. l want those big op tanks. But I will never get one. So the god players get better and the bad players like me. Don’t get a chance…..
