So, what is up with the nerfed Ranked Sprint rewards?

10k coal, for ranking out?

You get 15k in a supercontainer.

A couple of flags?

You get those watching a youtube video.

Half a million credits?

You get that with one decent game of Random, or two ordinary games.

No steel. Just a bunch of meh rewards.

Why?

What is the thinking?

Maybe it will keep the spuds away that only play for the "rewards"?

You must be fun at parties.

When you see folks spreading too much jam on their toast, does it make you very angry?

All that wasted jam.

It makes me angry.

I find that internalising the rage is good way to stay focused.

Its funny I saw the rewards and thought.  Cool the really good flags so when I get some prem time and I am regrinding the French line it will massively help.

The coal will be great so I can get anpther cool ship or captain that I dod not pay real money for.

Or this, this is an option too.

Its free!  Why cant we all simply say tha me WG.

ranked sprint is easier to complete, so the rewards are less.

Plus side is, Tier VII Ranked Battles is coming up fast. Great way to get 4.7k Steel for rank out.

And no, it's not a Ranked Sprint, it's actually Ranked Battles

This is right on par with Raked sprint. No nerfs. Are you comparing to normal ranked?

I guess I must be. I've only done ranked sprint once, and honestly can't remember what the prizes were.

Ah OK that makes sense. 

Yeah the big rewards are for the Normal Ranked seasons.

The Sprints are much easier.

The coal is smallish for ranking out IMO..  However the signals along the way are worthwhile.

:SerB:

Do you have any idea how many battles an average person must play to rank out in a real ranked season?  A lot....

It is A way....I don't know that too many people think it's a "great" way.  Those who can get to rank 1 easily don't need the steel, those that need the steel usually can't get there.

If you don't like to see it go to waste you can always use the Karma system to give other players condiments.
