Its official, next patch Wargaming will be pulling the plug on the Rampage mode.
The personal missions for Rampage mode will be disabled (there wont be compensation for those still trying to complete them) and the players who earned the T-22 sr. will maintain their tanks, however, the tank will undergo into some changes and get nerfed.
It’s a shame really, the mode was promising at the beginning but it was so badly applied with nearly impossible to complete missions and with a reward so appetizing which lead most players to rig the matches. Even after WG made the missions easier, some players still kept on rigging because as usual, when staff didn’t ignored people reporting on the forums about these issue they would redirect them to Costumer Support instead which consistently copy-pasted the same message, that “there is an Automated System in place so do not waste their time”. An Automated System that if it really exists (because WG refuses to disclose any information about it) it clearly doesn’t work as we already have established. Riggers don’t respect WG’s authority because there is none.
All the rigging situation also drove the good players away from the Rampage mode, not only it destroyed people’s fun but also the reward tank became so infamous that even if someone legitimately completed the missions everyone else would assume he/she was a rigger as well and receive harassment
At the end, I agree with WG’s decision to remove the Rampage mode although I wish they had done it sooner, I also believe that they are giving some poetic justice by nerfing the T-22 however, they say that there is a chance that they will introduce the tank in the future after the nerf but in my opinion they shouldn’t… instead I hope they nerf that vehicle to the ground and reduce compensation values to give riggers as little as possible.
And this is why we cant have nice things… But at least we can finally give it closure, over a year later.

*Edit*NA office, you probably should check with your Portuguese translator, he/she seems to not understand the difference between buff and nerf. It happens.
