How is it possible to lose more games than you win and still advance? I am struggling to rank out and I have nearly 400 games. My win% keeps going up, from the start of the season until now. Ugh!!!:izmena:

 

Top scorers from the losing team do not lose stars so it is possible. 

Just an average player who normally commandeers a CV. 

In a game, strength is just an illusion.

I've only played a couple of ranked battles this season, the rewards aren't all that good and early on there were a ton of CVs.  The problem with that is, the better CV wins about 80% of the time, so at that point it's a coin flip, did I get the good CV or the terrible one?

 

On a side note, if you haven't bothered with ranked until now.  Give it a try.  If you're average you'll feel like a god.  :trollface:

Ahh if only my blys had more than a 11 point captain.... About the only DD that was able to give me grief in the sims... Loved that thing back before the skill changes, now it feels like I need more points to be at the same place.

I reached rank 1 for the first time this season. It really does feel like reaching the top of the mountain after the sheer rock climb in the premiere league, then rolling over and sleeping for a few days. :sleep_fish:

I was having troubles moving forward around rank 10, thats when I started to take the sims out; I think the funny thing is if I play to keep a star (deal damage/spot/cap) I tend to lose, whereas if I stick almost exclusively to spotting and smoking, my team can usually do the killing well enough. I went from 50/50 keeping many stars to whole sessions of 80+% win rate, however when we did lose I would almost inevitably lose my star, despite using the sims.

If anyone is struggling at winning with DDs in ranked, the best advice I can give is to focus almost exclusively on spotting and marking the targets, use your torps when you can and hope that your intel allows your baddies to shoot more often than the reds.

And i'm flat-out burnt out as well now.

Can't find the mood to continue trying to rank anymore. :hiding:

Pushed to 6 because I misunderstood the value of the crapmodules on offer from 9-2... figured it out and quit. Sold modules for 625k.

Started tonight at rank 2.0, thought I'd see how much progress I could make, if any, since we're running out of time.  Won all 5 games in a row.  After 573 battles, and a 49.56% winrate, I finally ranked out for my first time!

Grats man, I kept seeing you in my games this Saturday.  I ranked out later on that day.

I got really frustrated at rank 14 with a team killing scum so I am done with ranked. Although, I got to rank 15 so I get the cool new flag. :sceptic:

Rank 3 was slightly frustrating, yo-yo'd quite a bit and took me more battles to get out of than every other rank. Ended up ranking out after 89 battles.

Same here, rank 3 was the worst, and I couldn't break it for the longest time.  I was at 3.3 at one point, then had a day which started with 11 losses in a row.  It was utterly heart-breaking.

Scraped up to 9, then sank back... a lot, so scraped back up to 9 and am walking away reasonably happy.  Quite stressful, those little stars.  On the plus side, the extra teamwork ranked makes happen has been a good experience.

Made it to my goal of Rank 15, now at rank 14. For me I am living the high life on that.
