    ranked experience so far

    My experience with ranked so far.... It is not all bad, you can actually play decently good in cruisers or DDs. My matches have been very inconsistent though, as you can see big potato BBs all the time. Lemming trains are a regular occurrence and saving stars is almost not a thing for me as smart CVs just outlast all other players and farm damage. Maybe I should play CV, too... We will see how this goes on. How are you people doing?
  2. So the queue for this ranked sprint looks like this: And every single battle I have had so far has been reasonably balanced between the classes: I'm just wondering why the MM isn't letting us do 8-on-8 BB battles. My secondary-specced Bismarck is itching to go a-brawlin!!
  3. I didn't have a single negative experience in Ranked Sprint. It was a completely Salt-Free event and I had many pleasant, but short, conversations with some of the players as battle started. I gave out as many Compliments as I could and received a few in return. To all of those I met in battle, thanks for a great experience! And thank you WG for finally putting this event out there for us to enjoy. I hope there are more to come.
  4. From the looks of things with this ranked sprint most ships seem to be able to take out most other ships. Some BB fare better against DD's than other - Massachusetts, Bismark, and Tirpitz. Some DD's may do better against some BB's - Le Fanatic against a Vlad, Kii, or Amagi. Some cruisers can cause real headaches for overly aggressive BB's - I'm looking at you Hipper and PE. Some cruisers will just devastate DD's - Cleveland? BUT...any of these ships in the right hands seemed to breeze through this ranked sprint 1 v 1. I've read posts by players who've done well in almost all ships available in T 8. There are probably exceptions, but most players can find a ship that they can do well in (judging from forum posts - but how well that reflects the player base in general I don't know). Some ships; by the look of things, are easier to do well in given this double cap and small map i.e. BB's. DD's I think have always been the most difficult ship to excel in, now that RTS CV's are gone. Even so, some DD players have had absolutely no real problems dealing with whatever comes their way this season. And some CV's do well. Given the results of this ranked sprint I think that a decent balance has been reached in the game. What I mean by that is no one ship type or class can defeat ALL other ships easily. To state the obvious all ships have strengths and weaknesses. Isn't that what balance means? And I suspect that is the case for most tiers.
  5. I decided to try Bismarck in the 1x1 Ranked Sprint. My opponent has a Tirpitz so this was going to be interesting since his torps gave him a clear advantage. His strategy was to move in for the early double cap knowing that I would either stay out of his torp range and he would win on points or I would move in risking certain doom. You'll need to watch it to the very end. FYI - I recorded the battle using Gforce Experience. I didn't realize that the streaming radio station in the background was being recorded too.
  6. Hello Ranked sprint will be in 1vs1, how i will blame my mate when i lose ?
  7. ...Because I think I got as perfect a ranked sprint season as one could hope for, even though I only started (from rank 10) yesterday. Only one defeat, and didn't even lose a star that time. I will say props to @RogueKitsune for carrying the team (including myself) through my final battle between rank 2 and rank 1 after I messed up and let a Graf Spee torpedo me at point-blank range.
  8. ... no way a Warspite would take advantage.
  9. We are happy to present you with the Developer Bulletin for Update 0.7.10. This Update continues the British arc, as well as bringing a lot of exciting novelties to World of Warships. What you get is another month of Royal Navy, new Halloween missions and features, Ranked sprint, and much more! IMPORTANT! Because the Update is still being tested, the information in this Bulletin is tentative, and reflects the state of game development at the time of its publication. Changes and new features may be removed entirely or implemented differently by the time the Update goes live. Screenshots, specific values of certain characteristics, and details of in-game mechanics will not necessarily be relevant after the Update is released. Royal Navy and British Destroyers The Royal Navy event is in full swing in World of Warships. Having taken part in it, players can receive brand new Tier V–VIII British destroyers and be the first to try them out in battle. The remaining British destroyers are undergoing final stages of testing at the moment. You will not be able to get Sovereigns in the new version, but they can be exchanged for quite an extensive list of valuable rewards. You can also keep accumulating Guineas for Tier VIII Premium destroyer Cossack, making it available with a huge discount. The new Royal Navy phase offers another 4 Stages, with each lasting 1 week. Each Stage has four Directives that contain a specific number of missions to be completed. Having completed a Stage, Directive, or mission, you will receive a corresponding reward, including various game items, Guineas, and new Halloween containers. You can complete the missions simultaneously, but you will only be able to access the next Directive after completing a certain number of missions from the previous one. Missions can be completed simultaneously and across any number of battles, unless indicated otherwise. Don't worry if you are unable to complete something on the fly, because all the Directives are available for completion until the end of the Stage. Halloween Halloween Port The Halloween Port will welcome you with its bewitching mysticism. Its emerald waters, steep cliffs, and a majestic castle suit well the place where the Forces of Darkness reign. Saving Transylvania and Sunray in the Darkness This year's celebration of Halloween is set to bring joy to players with the return of familiar operations: Saving Transylvania and Sunray in the Darkness. To complete Operation Saving Transylvania, you will have to gather all your courage again and accompany the ship called Transylvania to a place safe from the Forces of Darkness, protecting it from the attacks of catapults and Zikasa ships along the way. However, making it all the way will not mean you are safe, because the meanest enemy awaits you at end—ship Rasputin! Sunray in the Darkness encourages players to band together against the Dark Forces that strive to break through the open portal. You will be aided by magic security towers, bestowed with power to close the portal again. Your main goal will be to protect them from a host of enemy ships. Repulse the attack of the Forces of Darkness until the portal closes and keep your eyes on the updated and advanced Filth, which will deduct your ship's HP just by touching it. Those who consider themselves die-hard slayers of the restless Forces of Darkness will have a chance to complete the Hard version—to be played in divisions—to forge their spirit in more dire circumstances. Terror of the Deep After completing the previous year's operations, get ready for a unique opportunity to complete a fresh operation entitled “Terror of the Deep” on submarines! Submarines are the long-awaited new type in World of Warships. However, they will be available exclusively in the new operation. While steering this new type, you have to master a new dimension—depth. You will be able to maneuver freely between the water’s surface, periscope depth, and deep waters. Every change in depth will affect your visibility and attack capabilities. You will get a chance to see the beauty of the underwater world and use submersion as a tactical maneuver—you can attack the enemy with your bow armament, and, on some submarines, having passed your enemy underneath, deliver a salvo from the stern. Torpedo tubes are going to be your primary weapon on submarines, and each torpedo can be launched independently. Besides this, each submarine can carry different types of torpedoes. In the new operation, there are going to be two of them: “standard” with considerable speed, and that are quite familiar to you from playing on destroyers, and “freezing” torpedoes, which are faster and deal less damage, but when they hit the target ship, disable her with all her systems for a certain period of time. One should not forget about an entirely new parameter for us, which is the oxygen supply. Keep an eye on its level — your submarines will replenish it at the surface and spend it when they dive. If you run out of oxygen, the submarine will initiate emergency surfacing. Become familiar with the new type, and break into the World of Darkness. Complete all challenges, with each challenge more difficult than the previous one and face the ultimate foe—Battleship Rasputin. You’ll have a choice of standard or more difficult modes. Select the standard mode if you’d like to get familiar with the new submarine mechanics, while a more difficult variant will allow you to truly immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the game. New Camouflages During the public test only, apart from those from previous Halloween celebration that you enjoyed, you will receive new camouflages for the following ships: North Carolina (Leviathan), Kiev (Razorworm), Z-23 (Steel Rat), and the first animated camouflage in the game—Mogami (Octopus). These camouflages resemble your opponents from the new operation; we hope that they’ll be a welcome surprise for you! Ranked Sprint A new format of Ranked battles will become available with the release of the new version, with two short and action-packed seasons, available for Tier V ships in 6х6 and 8х8. Within the season, players will be divided into two leagues: rank 1 to 5, and rank 5 to 10. Join the battle as a Division with 2 players from your league or on your own. One of the special features of this sprint season is that it’s going to be shorter than the main season. The Sea Wolves league will not be available. Though this new format is intended mostly for the new players, all players are welcome to take part in the Sprint. Team up with your friends and good luck! Torpedo Warning A fresh and pleasant change for players will be new torpedo threat detection mechanics. The purpose of these new mechanics is to reduce the number of false torpedo warnings about torpedoes that are not dangerous. We hope that these warnings will help to improve the effectiveness of your maneuvers in battle. Matchmaker Based on your numerous requests, in the upcoming update, we’ve introduced a “soft” limit of 4 destroyers in random battles. This limit comes into effect when the first player in the queue waited for a battle for less than three minutes. In co-op battles, no more than 4 destroyers and 4 battleships are allowed. Supply We’ve introduced a new section called “Supply”. If you log in to the game regularly, you’ll receive rewards. So hurry and claim your reward! Be amongst the first to test the changes we’ve made in 0.7.10! Collect your rewards and share your impressions and feedback with us!
