  3. In this ranked season, some of the strongest battleships appear to be those that can dominate an enemy bow-on battleship. The three obvious contenders are Musashi, Jean Bart, and Lion (although Lion is otherwise not too strong). Lion and Jean Bart have high fire chances and thus can reliably burn to death anything that refuses to show broadside, while Musashi has the gun caliber to simply punch through with AP regardless. However, for the rest of the tier 9 battleships, their options are more limited. Granted, some have better survivability than others (Sovetsky Soyuz, for instance, can tank a good bit better than, say, Iowa), but the fact is that using only AP none of them can do more than get deck pens and superstructure overpens (which is a pretty tedious process, to say the least) unless one of them finally makes a mistake and shows a bit too much broadside. And certainly, if they try a bow-on contest with AP against an HE-slinging Lion/Jean Bart or a Musashi that does not make any mistakes, they'll lose. On the other hand, none of them are known for having good HE. When in a bow-on situation against an enemy battleship (in particular Musashi/Lion/Jean Bart), is it worth switching to HE or is it better to stick with AP?

    Can we get an update on Slava please?

    Before the next ranked season. If it’s not coming fine but if it is I’d like to know. I don’t want to waste my time switching the Admiral to my Sovetsky Soyuz if it’s not going to be worthwhile.
  5. Hello. I have been hearing rumors that with Wargaming experimenting with tier 8 clan battles and tier 9 ranked, that there will probably be a competive season consisting of tier 3 ships. This really got me thinking that it would be pretty interesting to have a clan battle or ranked season with these mighty ships. What ships do y’all think would be good when a ranked or clan battle season comes in the near future focused in on tier 3 ships???

    Ranked Season

    Hey all! didn’t the patch notes say that there was going to be a new season of ranked this month? Does anyone have any information of that? Also, is Wargaming going to give out rentals like they did last season, so new players like me who don’t have tier 9s will still be able to participate in the fun?
  7. Before proceeding let me preface this by saying that before the Twelfth Season I thought Rental ships would be the biggest problem this Ranked Season would have. You could probably find some of my posts stating this exact thing. After quite a few Ranked battles (stats in spoiler if anyone is wondering) I have come to the conclusion this is not the case. Yet I keep on seeing people considering Rentals the absolutely worst thing to happen that totally ruins the Ranked experience. My stats from this season in case anyone is wondering about my experience in the current Ranked: In my opinion the situation isn't that clear cut. You can argue that the way Rentals are implemented leaves alot to be desired, and this is to a certain extent correct. Ships that rely alot on concealment like DDs and some cruisers are definitely at a disadvantage yet others aren't that affected by the lack of camouflage. Some claim that Rentals are played by the absolute worst players imaginable; yet I see players with a proper tier X and sub 40% winrates that still don't know basic mechanics and spend alot of time in Ranked; even that argument has flaws. Others say that Rentals simply flood battles. The most I have seen in just one battle were 5, split 2-3. Now, am not saying that Rental ships can't be driven by bad or inexperienced players, or that in some cases they can put you at a disadvantage, but it is laughable to consider them the only reason for the issues Ranked has. Like it or not, Rentals give new players the opportunity to try out some tier Xs, learn a bit how the mode works, earn a few rewards, lose some credits because you are running a tier X without the option of camo. Most of the inexperienced players anyway will most likely stick to the last irrevocable Rank, 12. Yes, the feature could be better implemented for sure, but in the end this is how WG decided to go on with it. But a question remains, what's that makes Rentals be that hated by quite a few people? In my opinion Rentals are the easy scapegoat to blame on a loss. The existence of brackets making it known to all players that they are driving a Rental makes them a very easy target to accuse of losing them the match. Similarly to how a CV will be blamed, or a DD that didn't do this and that, or a Cruiser or a BB. People are constantly trying to find reasons to justify their performance and Rentals are just the newest thing. Yet what I see more often as bad for Ranked are people playing to farm damage and save a star instead of winning, of players going into full tryhard mode the moment a ship is down instead of trying to rally the team,of people simply rushing in their "proper" tier Xs to die within 5 minutes. Bottom line, before you start blaming Rentals for your loss, first reflect on what you or other teammates in "proper" tier Xs may have done right or wrong.Nobody is perfect; I can name for a fact 3-4 of my battles where I had 100% responsibility of my team's loss. But just because Rentals exist doesn't mean they are the ones that brought defeat.
  8. When the next season of rank drops (not the sprints), what will be the starting ranks for each individual level? For instance, I made it to rank 5, what will that start me on the next season?
  9. One of the constant gripes I’ve heard over and over this season centers around frustration with ranked teams and the stress of the current ranked system. The majority of the unicums I know were not enjoying it and a lot of the overall playerbase seemed to espouse a similar sentiment. Consequently I wanted to propose a potential system to address this problem after coming up with the idea when talking with JohnTheRuthless. Since most of the players I know well stem from the comp community I wanted to run the idea by a wider audience. The core of the solution revolves around using experience as the metric to advance up the ranks as opposed to the star system. Ranks are gained through the base XP earned in ranked matches, with a certain amount required per rank. Losses no longer cause players to lose stars or ranks with the major penalty coming from the forfeiture of the additional experience that would have been gained from a win. The system still rewards individual skill as those individuals who are able to win consistently will continue to be rewarded with higher XP gains and a quicker rank out. Ultimately the intent is to maintain most of the challenge of ranking out while creating a system that helps out average players and skilled players alike with a stress reduction for everyone involved. Ideally this could be a system demo’d in a ranked sprint first as opposed to a full ranked season.

    (VIDEO) CVs are broken

    Trying my hardest to carry my team to a victory in Ranked. The enemy carrier is all over me wave after wave. When I finally get my chance to kill him at close range, he turns and sails away taking 0 damage.
  11. They got the same exact exp so I guess they cheated the system that way. Just wanted to share because, I mean what are the odds.
  12. Since playing ranked this year, and I am certainly no unicum, I have been amazed at some team strategies that some players cannot grasp and seem hard. I will place them in my order of difficulty and comment. I would love to see your order, comments and additions. 1) Cruisers, especially radar cruisers need to position themselves where they can support the DD's with radar and fire at opposing DD's. 2) BB's, especially in ranked, need to move in to where they can support the above mentioned cruisers and shoot opponents DD's as well. 3) If an opposing DD is spotted and you can take a shot at it...do it. Don't just try to selfishly farm a BB. DD's become extremely powerful if left alive till later in the match 4) Focus fire and call out targets as well. 5) Complete lemming trains fail 98% of the time.If your team leaves you no choice and your ship really is not suitable to kiting the weak side, then the strong side has to push like maniacs. ( Lemming is still a bad idea though) 6) Yoloing, even if a brawler like a GK, or making yourself a target for the entire enemy team at the beginning of a match is.... well dare I say it....just dumb. Let your opponent get focused first. There will be plenty of chances to be aggressive when you know the positions of the reds. 7) Sometimes doing very little to nothing is called for. Example: if you are extremely low on health and one shot-able by most everything, for gosh sake's go dark...don't continue blazing away. You are worth points to your team by being alive. These are my observations. I would love feedback on yours.
  13. If you are looking for a Beast of a ship to progress in Ranked in which for most cases secures the win for your team or if you loose secure you the nr1 spot on the loosing team which saves you that star. Also the strongest ships to get Achievements in, usually netting you 3-4-5 in each game.
  14. Granted, I don't have many tier 10s (I have one, Midway, which I refuse to take out until I have a better sense of the new CV controls), but I do have a decent number of tier 8s and 9s (and again, granted, I haven't touched PvP since March). Nevertheless, I feel like recently WG has given far too much focus on the high tiers (tier 8-10) and not enough focus on the middle or even lower tiers (tier 7-). I imagine there are reasons for this, but I must point out that so far: all clan battles up to the present have been tier 10 the last time a ship tier 7 and below could advance up to rank 1 in a proper ranked season (as opposed to ranked sprint) was in July 2017 (i.e. it's been almost 2 years now); everything else has been tier 8-10 (heck, even tier 8 and 9 ships don't have it too good either, since tier 9 only has had one season dedicated to it and tier 8 ships were locked out from the upper ranks in favor of tier 10 ships in recent seasons) the majority of the new armory/premium ships released or being planned for release are tier 8-10, and a number of them can only be earned through steel (and thus the catch-22 cycle is that one must have high tier ships to earn said steel) In addition, I do not believe I am the only one when I state that a) I do not enjoy being constantly forced to use high-tier ships and fight in the high-tier meta and b) I dislike the overall hemorrhaging of silver that comes with repeated high-tier battles. It's not as if high tier battles create instantly engaging battles between 2 competent teams either—potatoes crop up the high tiers too. I think when it gets to the point that rental ships have to be provided (and handicapped ships at that, given you can't put camouflages on them) that perhaps somewhere, somehow, there's a problem that needs fixing.
  15. I know the title seems like click bait but honest hear me out. This threw me off big time. I "was" whole heart anti-rental ships in ranked. I'm sure other people are the same way "what the hell Wargaming what are you doing!" So I was shooting the $hit this afternoon with my clan commander. He tells me hey I got a new guy join other night. Nothing new there, always enjoy hearing the story on the new people. He tells me to look at his profile and look at his tier 10 ships. He had several of my favorite tens. He said guess what hes using in ranked. I figured Des Moines his most played ship. Nope. Then what? Rental. I told my commander bull$hit. He sold all of his tier 10s for credits. He has been using the rentals in ranked. So my commander says guess what rank he is. I responded with my rank because its a place to start 10. He responds go lower. So hes rank 8? No try 5. Believe it or not this fella has been using a rental ship in ranked and reached rank 5. After I had the conversation I felt like an [edited]after criticizing rentals in ranked. I know alot of the players in rentals probably shouldn't be there but we as a community shouldn't lump everyone into one label. There are a few great players in rentals. Those few are lost in the anti-rental rants which I was part of. Karma always comes back to get me somehow. Anyways I thought it was an interesting story and had to share it! Cheers and happy sailing!
  16. Me love da spreadsheets and working with the API. I made one that let's me input clan tags and look up the current progress of their players in ranked, what ships they used the most and their win rates. I entered several of the top NA and EU clans and this is where they stand at the moment.
  17. Give some of your hilarious poor play stories of rental ships in ranked here. My favorite...A rental Moskva charges in, guns blazing and then turns to go east-west (broadside) against the enemy. Fortunately he was red to me. He gets dev struck and comments in chat that the Moskva must be shiot, as he had heard it was a tough boat. lol.

    Rentals in Ranked is GOOD!!

    First off my apologies to WG RENTALS in ranked is good. It's the SAVE A STAR guys that instead of positioning kite away and damage farm instead of killing dds capping and spotting thats ruining ranked. Selfish %@#%!
  19. I've had only two matches with them in there, and truth be told, even though I have the Midway, I wouldn't be in any hurry to bring it into ranked. Why? Because CVs can't do one of the most important tasks in a ranked battle, capping/contesting caps. As it is, with the possibility of running into CVs you'll be seeing a lot of ships with strong AA in matches; Des Moines, Worcesters, Minotaurs, Kremlins, Montanas, etc.
  20. This Gearing never moved or fired a thing from the start of the match, he survived a Zao that tried to kill him but not fast enough and looking at this scoreboard, he got a star. So, what is it? Can people start going AFK on ranked matches and still get stars? If the person didn't contribute to the victory, why give him a star? Maybe it's a visual bug since he got 0 exp even though he received potential damage but he still got a star...
  21. Have 19 Pt Captain in Gearing, 18 Pt Captain in Shima. When in Shima, lots of torp hits and HP, but the teams tend to lose. In Gearing, not so much total damage and lower on the team score, more dd gun hits, and the teams tend to win. Not getting this. Can anyone shed some light?
  22. Yes frustrating at first. But once you get to the 10 and 9 ranks, you see them a lot less. I even ran into a few that did pretty good. I am guessing these are t10 players playing in ships they don't have. There have some super noobs though as well. Anyhow, ranked this season wasn't as bad I thought it would be. Doing fairly well in my Shima. Ok in my DM. For those mad as **** about rentals. Get to 10, you see alot less of them. Hope this helps.
  23. Title says it all. I don't have any tier X ships as of right now and I don't often buy stuff from the premium shop. I also wanted to fully kit out all the Rental ships I could because I wanted to try them out, see how they perform. But there, in the process of equipping those tier X rentals, lies the rub. In order to fill all the equipment slots and equip all the flags I wanted to, I had to burn through 4,500 gold, around a hundred million credits, spend over $150 on said gold and credits, and dip into my limited supply of flags. Frankly, for some ships I'm only going to have for a limited time in a game mode that's only going to be around for the next month, that's a little absurd. I'd much rather it be like one of the years of the Halloween game mode or the original Space Mode, where all the upgrades were basically free. I understand that the game works on a free-to-play model, but that's just it: It's FREE to play. This kind of makes Ranked feel like an Electronic Arts game, where access to something you want is locked behind a paywall, and we all know just how maligned EA is for that practice. I'm guessing that the idea of having Rentals for this season of Ranked is accessibility, but keeping the tier X costs around seems to defeat that purpose. Not everyone can afford a trip to the Premium shop in order to kit out a bunch of rentals, nor is everyone quite as (begrudgingly) willing to spend their hard-earned money as I was. I hope that the next time WG decides to give everyone rentals for Ranked, they learn from this instance and keep the costs low in the name of accessibility. Alright, rant over. If you want to insult me for my apparently monumental idiocy, go right ahead. I've voiced my two cents and that's all that matters. Now I'm going to go watch the Raptors play in the NBA Finals. #WeTheNorth

    PSA: Daring drivers

    To all Daring drivers: In Epicenter rounds, your place is not the 1 and 10 lines, trying to torp snipe ships that are A) Behind rocks, and B) Beyond your torp range anyway, even if they weren't behind said rocks. Your hydro is useless if you aren't actually, you know, within spitting distance of things that, like you, have torpedoes. You are a DD hunter and a capper and defender. You are not, nor will you ever be, a Shimakaze. That is all, thank you.

    DD for ranked?

    Considering CVs can be in ranked, what are the "safe" or best choices for DDs? I don't have patience to try to watch game queue and wait for no CVs. So what DDs I can take into ranked that may have CVs. Starting with the obvious Grozovoi - done. Gearing has DFAA so again obvious choice. What else? Haragumo has dual purpose 100mm guns so pretty decent AA rating even without DFAA. However, no heals, sluggish so hard to maneuver to avoid drops, big target,... Thoughts? Daring - pass? Does have heals. Z-52 pass? Pan asian dude is a pass Looking for thoughts on DDs besides Grozovoi and Gearing. thanks
