Annoying me I can't think of a way to project the final cutoffs given the data available right now. Anyone else have an idea?

The key detail is not on the website....

 

In the wot client there is a little "i" icon on the season leader page. It states the rank point requirement for showing up in the rankings by stage (2,4,8,12)

Is that cumulative or do you need to earn 2 points week 1, 4 points week 2, 8 points week 3 and 12 points week 4 to even be on the board?

 

Nevermind, it has to be cumulative or the leader board would be even smaller this week.

4 pages today in this thread on maffs and what ifs.It's all very weird and confusing.No clue how it will play out in the end for me, but I will go the full season regardless of where I end up.2 weeks down, 2 weeks to go.It cant get much more frustrating than being a potato at Rank 5 the past few days.It's almost embarrassing to play in some of these games, but I'll stick it out to the end. 

 

Failing my way up is fun stuff.

I ran a few ranked battle yesterday, and won 3-1.  However, running them is now just a whim for me and I will not pursue in any serious manner.  Too much of a credit and time sink.  Also if you team is a sit back and gun for the top 3 losers, why even play.  Two I played with mediums yesterday were more aggressive and we rolled in a wolfpack.  Hilarious fun.

 

BTW Maida - 430 for the win.  Led a wolfpack as the lead spotter sweeping a flank.

 

So I stand by my recommendation...Russian meds (including 121) or the STB.

I played for an hour or so last night for the lul's, and saw a surprising amount of purples in med's doing this. I can only attribute the behavior to them wanting to rank up asap, and winning was secondary. I think it's a shame the mechanics of a new game mode promote this behavior.

Maybe to promote winning, the top players 3-5 players on the winning team should get 2 chevrons. Or make it so the top 3 players on the losers don't get a chevron, but they don't loose one either.

Playing passive is part of the meta. In CW you can beat campy teams by being coordinated, pushing as a group, even sacrificing tanks to secure a position, etc. In ranked all those things are 10 times harder because no coms and nobody is willing to throw away their tank.

 

It is the complete opposite of pubs where matches are a race to see which team can throw away as a many tanks as possible as fast as possible.

looks like it is 3, 3, 5 and 7 in answer to our chevron question last night, Holsy.

 

I hit rank 3.0 last night ...several times :dry and ended at 2.2 which was pretty good considering I was only half playing (quite a bit of AFK time). Should hit rank 4 tonight if not 5

It goes without saying, that this isn't clan wars. IMO, the game mode would benefit if the mechanics promoted winning over chevrons.
