    A compliment for Ranked Season 18

    I have never been one to shy away from critique of WoW and, in particular, Ranked battles. This most recently completed Season 18, however, was a stunningly enjoyable experience for me. Having missed the first half of the season and bracing myself for the inevitable 5 DD and a CV Tier X nightmare, my expectations were pretty low. That I was starting at Rank 14...uh oh. So, I loaded up my Kremlin and figured to just see if Rank 9 were possible and work from there. To my shock, I played under 100 battles and enjoyed nearly every one of them! There were some amazing matches, both wins and losses, but I never once felt the urge to curse a CV or gripe about a single DD...THAT is an accomplishment for me! I don’t know what, if anything, was different in the matches or if it was just me...I can only pray to have such a great experience continue. No, I didn’t rank out...never have actually. But, it didn’t matter...it was fun! Kudos, comps and laudations to WoW for a most entertaining season of Ranked. Maybe I’m the only one, but considering I flat-out quit the game a couple months back out of sheer frustration...it means a lot for me to be able to say: I am glad to be back!

    Finally experienced the idiocy that is AP rockets

    So, let’s see the recordings showing ANY match where a CV was exposed to anything remotely close to that kind of damage to their own ship even five minutes into the match? Until and unless that can happen, there is a major flaw in the game.

    Season 17 ranked.

    What ships to play in Tier VIII ranked: Massachusetts, any CV, any DD, Mainz, Kutuzov...maaayyyybbbbeee an Odin. What NOT to play? Any other ship, if you have any dreams of moving beyond Rank 10.
  4. It is a well-known fact that AA is fairly useless against CVs and have been for many months and three ranked events now. That the Tier VII embarrassment has now been repeated in Tier VIII ranked? Doesn’t even seem to phase the “experts” who roll out how much intricate knowledge of the game you simply MUST have in order to have the necessary skills to succeed. One wonders if these people actually read what they are saying? Doubtful, as it really isn’t rocket science to see that CVs with unlimited planes spamming torps with 5 second arming times is, very plainly, one of the worst messes that WOW has come up with...and, that includes the Smolensk fiasco that STILL exists!

    Ranks is not broken? Really?

    You can’t win: if you didn’t buy the Massachusetts, invest in the CV tech tree or play a DD...sorry, you cannot rank out. In fact, the only thing you CAN do if not in one of those ships, is to allow someone on the other team to rank out. I’m sorry, there’s always the Mainz, too for an OP wonderment. But, y’know what, there’s already a $h!tload of geniuses above who have effectively nullified you and labeled you as a poor player, because THAT’S why there’s so few people even trying anymore in ranked. Yessir, it isn’t that WOW has ruined the game with bought ships and CVs that should never be allowed in ranked or the game...nope, it’s that you have just decided to be a bad player and chosen to be on the wrong teams in agonizing regularity. Shame on you.

    Who have you seen in game

    Skipping the cutesy hugfest you have going, I’m going to be brutally honest: NOBODY! I haven’t seen anyone, in months, that I know. In fact, I could probably put a solid list of players that have likely quit playing due to the mess the game has become. Maybe you guys should stop [edited]-big yourselves at how wonderful the world is and start realizing you’re losing players left and right while fiddling away as the game burns. But, hey, what do I know other than the game is rapidly becoming unplayable.

    Does anyone think CVs are perfectly balanced?

    “Perfectly balanced”...relative to what, each other? Against other ships, only a fool believes that CVs are anything other than a cluster f#%k. Unlimited planes that cannot get shot down fast enough while launching torps with impossible speeds...what’s not to like? Ranked matches have gone from bad (Tier X) to dreadfully bad (last one, the Tier VII embarrassment) to horrifically and hopelessly ruined bad this time around. A start...and only a start, would be to put a seven to nine second delay in the torps arming themselves. At least that would give a BB or CA a chance. Another improvement would be to effectively double the AA on every ship. The only other solution I would advise, other than banning CVs outright, would be to have them spawn in between both teams and force them to actually fight for their survival. I won’t hold my breath for any of these solutions, but they would at least make the game tolerable...which, it surely has not been for many months.

    How to win in Ranked

    There was a time, a couple of years ago, when you could play in ranked battles and, if you were halfway decent at the game or just were careful, you could actually do well. Now? Not a chance. You start every match at the whim of a CV or a couple of OP ships that dictate the game from the start. If it’s a CV, your “strategy” goes out the window the moment that match starts as you immediately have to defend against the endless planes and torps coming every minute or two. The only solution is to remove CVs from ranked...yeah, that’ll happen right after they stop bringing in OP’d ships and a MM that consistently puts together horrible teams that magically end up on my side. Yep, only way to win is not to play.
  9. 2km away from a Vladivostok just now, while in my own Vlad...two full broadsides right under his #2 turret. Want to guess on how many citadels I got? How about whether I even got the kill? That would be zero and no. But, even though I had 22K HP at that point...yep, three torps from the CV sunk me. Best part of the whole match was three minutes before when I sent up my fighters, chose the right side option for my AA, had my teammate’s Bismarck to my immediate left AND nearly ran over our Edinburgh...yessir, CV’s planes still got through and hit me with two torps! That’s enough, I have a life to live, best of luck to you guys, but I’m done.
  10. Yeah, it’s me...as evidenced by the 8 kills one day before the last Tier 7 ranked. Yep, I just can’t aim well. That’s what it is. Can’t be that the game is simply a mess because of way too many new ships and too many updates. Can’t be because they’ve made it so the only way to win is to pay gobs of money. Can’t be any of that, it must be that the game is fine and I suddenly forgot how to play it. Yeah, how’s that Smolensk working? Stalingrad? Thought so.
  11. One day previous to last ranked battles, I ran a Shinyhorse with two clan mates of mine in a random match. Got 8 kills. I’m not the best at this game, but I’ve gotten to rank 3 before. So, Tier VII ranked runs its course...I’ve never struggled so hard in this game to simply get to rank 9...didn’t matter what ship I used, couldn’t hit a thing and got shredded by every store-bought ship the game offers. So, here we are at Tier 8 ranked...started at 12 with one star. Got to 9 with one star yesterday morning. Last night, this morning...I’m running an Alabama...big deal, the Massachusetts (unbeknownst to me) is the only USN ship that cannot be hit much less cit’d, four full HE salvos at a slowly backing up Tirpitz B (from 15km away, no less)...think I got a fire? Lol, not one shell even touched him! 36 shells, not even a ricochet. And, that doesn’t even include the magically disappearing broadside in the previous match against 2300 HP Lenin from 5km away...yeah, 5. What did my teammate say: biased ship wins. Sure, unless I’m in one. Meanwhile, any CV? I can run all the AA flags I want...guaranteed at least three torps hit me, every time. DDs hit me with impunity. Hell, I just report every opposing CV from the start, not like I’m going to hit one in the match anyways, might as well. My Vladivostok? Oh, I’m sorry, it’s not the Lenin, so don’t bother. Alabama? You should have bought the Mass. Tirptz? Bismarck? Oh, silly you...you need an Odin. Don’t bother with Cruisers, suffice it to say against my ships...indestructible. But, if I’m running a Cleveland? Out in the first three minutes, no matter what island or how close to it. World of store-bought insanity. Treasure chests of bought fun.

    whats better for ranked?

    In ranked? Lyon, Nagato are good, but Sinop is a killer...unless I’m in it, then the shells go sideways, over or under everything. I had a full broadside on an Atlanta tonight from 3.2km away...I got 3 overpens and a laughing opponent. Russian bias? Not if I’m driving it...I fact, I have the only Sinop that loses a star in a win DDs? Doesn’t matter which one you pick, just remember: if you are on my team, there will be 6 DDs per side and our side will have 3 guys who’ve never driven a DD before and one who goes right in the middle of B, fires blindly and takes a crossfire of torps and/or HE shells before uttering “#%*$”. CA? Belfast, Fiji or Atlanta. Keep in mind that if you are in an Atlanta and opposite team to me, every shot you fire, even if it is directly at the A1 corner...will start a fire on my ship. In fact, fire directly at an island and you will likely citadel any BB I’m in. And in a Belfast and against me? Just stop...you could literally hit my ship and still be invisible on my screen Finally, two things: first, if you find yourself on my team, 9 times out of 10 will be a gut-churning loss...like tonight when I started a turn late in the match up 5 ships to three. Just as I lined up my shots and the reload finished...yep, losing 2 ships to 3 and one of ours was on almost no HP. The second one? MM will make sure that any radar...there will be two of in the match and both on the other team. The only positive from playing on my team in ranked? Guaranteed that I will finish second or third in damage...which means that saving that star is still available.

    Need 5 DDs and 2 Sinop in every Ranked match

    “So much for US bias...” Really, if you are going to be sarcastic (and after 19,232 battles, you had better be with a line like that) you need to make it dripping with sarcasm: “Oh yeah, US BIAS...uh huh, rrriiiggghhhttt!”
