    My honest view of RANKED SPRINT!

    Sigh, I already have. You're being dense, now. Everyone gets those type of players. I get them on my team, too. How do you explain, then, that unicum players rank out quicker than average players, who rank out faster than bad players? The unicum players must just be getting super lucky all the time, right? Has nothing to do with skill. How about instead of expecting to get carried every game, you work to improve your game? Or do you just never make mistakes and are always dragged down by your pesky teammates?

    Well, no one said there wasn't any luck. There will always be some luck, but it is not a complete crapshoot that you and the OP seem to think. It's mainly skill-based, but there is some luck that goes into it. You also seem to forget that I have had those same players on my team, and I still won most of those games. And the games that were uncarryable, and I lost, I did well enough to keep my star every game. So I stand by my "common denominator" remark. Once people realize that their problems just aren't the other people on their teams, but themselves, they can work to improve. But I don't expect those who are oblivious to this to wake up to it, either. And chill out.

    We were merely saying that OP's claim that they can't progress because of bad luck is nonsense. There is one common denominator in every single one of his games, and it's him. He is blaming every team for his inability to move up, and refuses to see that it might be his play that is the problem, too. The point we were bringing up is that you do control your destiny to some degree, which is proven by the fact that better players rank out faster. There were already a couple people in this thread who acknowledged they aren't the best players and that their own play has caused some of their struggles. OP needs to come to this realization, too. This was never a slight against average players.

    COOP achievments

    I never said there weren't a ton of bad players in each mode. Without a doubt, the game is full of bad players. I play with them all the time. Look, if you like the PvE, fine. I find it mind-numbingly boring and only suffer through it if it will make grinding a task easier or quicker. For this reason, I often play dumb in Co-Op and don't care if I die or even win, because I know every game is pretty much a guaranteed win. I prefer playing against real people because the games are more dynamic and much more fun. Devstriking a bot does nothing for me, but doing that to a human opponent is much more satisfying. PvE is simply not fun. It's bland and there is no variation. If you like the repetitiveness of Co-Op, more power to you, bon't get so hurt over the fact that not everyone thinks Co-Op is some amazing game mode... Because the initial argument was that a team of veteran Co-Op players would do better than a team of veteran PvP'ers in a Co-Op game. So pulling random games showing you on the top of the scoreboard is completely irrelevant. If I countered with screenshots of me on the top of a Co-Op game, would that prove anything? No, it wouldn't. Some people love their red herrings, though. Again, this wasn't the argument and is a red herring. The argument was the PvE meta was "so different" that it would somehow overwhelm people who primarily play PvP and that people who only play PvE would somehow do better.

    Wonderful cherry-picking. It's totally irrelevant, but whatever...

    Just look at all this luck I had.... (Granted, the Giulio is OP as hell, but it was a hilariously fun time)

    In Co-Op? Odds are he didn't care enough to try and was just spamming games for a reason. Since you can't leave Co-Op games anymore, suicide rushing to die is fine and gets the game over quicker for you. If people really tried, it wouldn't be close. Veteran PvP players would easily win.

    My honest view of RANKED SPRINT!

    I'm pretty sure me ranking out in 16 games (and saving a star each of my 3 loses) is indicative of skill and not luck. And I'm not the only one who did it such few games, many others have as well. People who complain the most about the ranked struggle are usually those who need to be carried to all their victories. But they always want to blame others for their poor performance, it's never their fault...

    Lol, no. The rare times I do play Co-Op (i.e grinding legendary mod wins), I almost always end up at the top and I'm not even trying. I play incredibly stupid, too, because I don't care, since it is Co-Op, after all. Random's have a lot of bad players, but some people I see in Co-Op make those people look like unicums...
  10. People who complain about "camping BBs" are typically just bad players with low survivability rates and no understanding of the game. BBs cannot push early in the game until the all the ships are spotted. If they do, they will get torped and HE spammed like crazy. Then, if they decided to push the enemy's strong side, there is no way to disengage. It takes forever to turn around, and in addition to the torps and HE, other BBs love to shoot at BBs making suicide turns. What it boils down to is these bad players suicide-rush into caps, die within the first 5 minutes, and then want to blame everyone else for their poor play. The easiest targets are BBs because they are slow and take time to even get in position, but it's still somehow all their fault.

    Asashio put Yugumo and Shiratsuyu to shame?

    That and smoke is pretty useless for those DDs. You're not going to smoke up and shoot ships because the guns aren't good enough and if you need it to escape, you've already got too close and are probably dead anyways. The IJN DD's rely on their torps, so the more you can get in the water, the more successful you will be.

    TRB Yug is the best of the bunch, and its not even close. That ship is amazing. Shira used to be amazing, now its just good. TRB Kag is ok, nothing special. Asashio is very situational, and if you get bad MM, its almost totally useless.

    Thoughts on ranked

    Well, yeah, if you only have, say the Shima, you're going to have a bad time. No doubt. The issue I have is all these ranked complaint threads tend to come from average to below average players who cannot win or save their star consistently enough to move up and instead want to blame everyone else on their team for being bad, when the reality is they are just as bad as the potatoes they are complaining about. It's not like every match is "unicums vs. potatoes" and they just so happen to always be on the potato team. They need to be carried up the ranks and get salty when that doesn't happen. Sure, there are going to be games where you end up on trash teams, but that happens to everyone. The good players save their star that game and move on to the next one. I do want to note that I don't think you're one of the people I'm talking about. You seem to be taking the struggle in stride and not solely blaming MM.

    Thoughts on ranked

    If people are still stuck in the 10-11 range at this stage, they aren't good players. It's really that simple. And the people I have noticed complaining the most on the forums about bad teams in ranked tend to be the below average players who need to be carried to victory and cannot move up on their skill alone. In other words, people who blame MM for their inability to advance are often the problem. Sure, there are some good people who haven't ranked out yet because they are taking their time, started late, or are having a run of bad luck, but they will likely still rank out in a reasonable number of games if they are good. Just look at the R1 club and you can see many of the top players have ranked out: https://worldofwarships.com/en/content/experience-tranquility/ No, R5 does not need to be an irrevocable rank. That's a really bad idea. R10 being irrevocable last season was bad enough, no need to add another pit stop for potatoes and griefers. Looking at your stats and ranked stats, it's not the other players that are dragging you down. Some people have to either accept they are not good enough to rank out and that if they want to, its going to take a boatload of games to do so. Ranked isn't that hard if you are a consistent player. I've ranked out the past for seasons, in 161, 159, 282, and 162 games. You can see that even with consistent people, it is possible to have a really rough season, but anything over 300 games is probably proof you're not meant to rank out. Unless you want to keep spamming games.
