Got a Twitch mission. Win five matches, ok not bad, must be completed in Ranked Battle, WHAT. I hate the ranked grind and rarely even play five matches in a season.

What is fun for one is not necessarily fun for others.

My son thinks running 13.1 miles is fun.

Weirdo.

No kidding, my body is so beat up my knees and hips hurt by the time I walk a mile. I should exercise but I need to find something super low impact.

You've got over 8k random battles.  What's 5 more to get something you want?

It would be fine if random was an option. The only ranked I have ever actually had some fun in was the tier 5 sprint with divisions.

My bad. I mistook "ranked" for "random"

But Ranked is really just a version of Random anyway, with less players and better rewards.

It kind of looks like it just a place to play your T9 gunboat DDs....

It is the grind that is needed to accomplish anything there that I hate. Oh, I might give it a go for the five wins

I don't even enjoy seeing someone else run...even less them talking about it.

Long term distance running is not healthy for many people.  Good for the cardio-vascular system but really hard on bones and joints.  My ortho surgeon told me no more running or I'd need knee replacement and back surgery.  He said runners made him rich :-)

Yeah shooting ships and taking caps in ranked is way different than doing those same exact things in random.

That isn't different but as I said it is the grind that I hate and to accomplish much in ranked you have to grind like a mad man.

Nice part about five wins is you don't need to actually advance anywhere, even if you just keep getting and losing the same star five times, it's perfectly fine.

The pain is trying to gain stars to reach some goal...

That is true. I am working up the courage to ignore my ranked phobia.

My brother, who is 60, has a new young wife. Each year she runs in the Boston, New York, and Santa Rosa marathons. She's got him running ten miles a day and on a vegan diet too. I'll have to admit he sure is in a lot better shape than me. The last time I ran was in the Army. As soon as someone couldn't make me run I didn't.

If the grind is only to win 5 matches and you're not grinding to actually get a certain rank, why is it a problem?

Enduring the slings and arrows of ranked. I wish you luck Brush. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment, I give it a go. However ranking out for me is rank 9, until season 12 accidentally got into ranked 8 (going to try and get back into 8). So taking a daily beating, at the whims of MM. Life of a average player, meh lol

On a happy note, I read where Kami had mentioned a chat filter and F key filter coming soon. That will be nice.

None of the Twitch missions have a reward that even comes close to being worth the ridiculously steep and/or specific completion requirements. 

They're hot garbage, and sadly indicative of where WG seems to want to take the game in terms of effort vs payoff.

I have never even gotten close to the flag.
