  4. DD vs DD Cage Match

    Two DDs go into a very small area only one comes out and progresses to the next level. Same tier, Same concept as ranked. Great training as DD on DD may be the toughest for the DD Captain. Opinions?
  5. In case you were wondering what they look like and what bonuses they provide. Flint: Black:
  6. .....Tier 9, please? Now that this season has wrapped up, it concludes another go-around with T8's in this format. Although T8 ships can be fun and competitive, it just seems like a do-over of the previous T8 seasons. Since we've also done Ranked in T6 and T7 formats, could the feasibility of a T9 Ranked season be explored? There are so many interesting ships in that bracket, and it would be great to try it with some new vessels to break up the "same old, same old" monotony.
  7. So today got my first personal challenge and it's a doozie. It's impossible on several levels. For one its tier 8 ranked so I can't use a tier 10 ship. For another I don't even HAVE a tier 10 ship, and I'm not exactly close to getting one. Not sure if the date-range given is accurate, because if so I only have one day to fulfil it. First time I've received one of these and it's a little bothersome because I would have loved to get my hands on that crate.
  8. Super League channel got enough people to set up a playable match. We were all excited to play until, normal WG mode all the caps were automatically given to the enemy team at spawn. Honestly, everyone who played that match should get a container since it is almost impossible to get anyone to join a Ranked 1 battle. I don't know if this was a glitch or WG didn't actually expect people to play Rank 1 battles. It's pretty embarrassing to e honest.
  9. Easiest Ranked Season By Far

    This was by far the easiest season I have had. The entire time I played it was enjoyable. I started late about 25 days to go and played consistently in the evening with the intention of ranking to the next level each day. The most stars I lost in a row were 2, and many times lost but no star gone. The rank 13-rank 6 I played 3 main ships. The Atago, Loyang, and the Kutuzov. Now you must be saying to yourself "oh premium ships" well at Rank 5 I ran the Edinburgh. Slot radar, extended hydro, and loaded a 19 point captain with RPF. Knew where the enemy was going and had a lot of fun contesting caps. I was not always at the top of the scoreboard but providing as much information to my team helped us win. 74% WR after I finished. Third time getting it so i'm excited to the the Flint in my port. Thanks for reading.
  10. This rank season has really drain the joy of the game from me. Dumb plays, suicidal teammates, shyster synch drops, people not knowing the Lo Yang has hydro and dying to it, while in a Lo Yang. I'm wore out from the constant back and forth of the R5-R2 bracket. I think I'm going to take a few months break and relax, cause my random games are suffering from it as well, and I've kind of lost enthusiasm for the game. I wish you all the best of luck in absence, and to those that got R1 thru the "normal" grinding, congratulations, I wish I could be right there with ya again.
  11. Friendly Reminder:

    Just a friendly reminder to get used to your Roma and get at least 20-30 matches in her before taking her out into ranked, dont burden your team with trying to learn a new ship. Thanks
  12. Save a star, ride a cowboy

    Unpopular opinion inbound! You've been warned. -- I keep seeing people complain about the star system in Ranked. Particularly the part about saving a star for placing top XP on your team. Some people say that the "save a star" system is too generous and that, "If you lose, you should lose your star." These people say that the star system causes people to play selfishly. Others say that the star system should be expanded to include top 2 or top 3. This suggestion is usually followed by "Lowest XP on winning team should lose a star". I have a couple problems with these sentiments. First of all, Ranked isn't giving out participation trophies. Yes, it is a grind, but if you can manage a 70% or higher WR, you'll probably rank out in 100-150 games or so. If you're sitting at a 55% WR, it might take a few hundred. There are even some rare exceptions in which a sub-50% player can rank out. That usually takes 1000+ games and a LOT of luck. There are always exceptions, but the trend is consistent. The point is, the better you are the faster you will rank out. Maybe you're not the Michael Jordan of WoWs... that's okay, with decent performance and enough time/commitment, you can get there. As for playing selfishly to save your star, if a person is actively doing this to the detriment of the team, how likely are they to advance? They're not. You only gain stars by winning. You have to play to win in order to win. If someone is consistently doing enough work to get top XP on the losing team, they're likely actively contributing to winning. There are always exceptions in which the worst player on the team gets top XP because they got lucky or something, but over dozens and hundreds of games, the star system works well enough. Not saying it's perfect, but it's not as bad as people are making it out to be. Finally, people need to realize that Rank 1 is for a small percentage of players. Namely, those that are good enough / committed enough to grind it out. Just because you can't get there, doesn't mean the system is horribly broken, maybe it just means that you're not cut out to be Rank 1. And that's NOT an indictment of you. You don't need to attain Rank 1 to prove anything. Disclaimer: I have never ranked out, nor do I intend to rank out. I don't have the mental fortitude to put myself through through that kind of stress and anxiety. Okay, I spoke my piece, now give me your downvotes!!!
  13. Hello! If you lose a ranked round but are in first place you save your star. This effects how a lot of people play and can drive the team to losing. Why? Because: "If I stay really far away and let my team die quickly, I can save my star. I won't contribute anything to help, but they died fast so they didn't need me anyways" Stop rewarding first place stars or any stars for losing. Instead, award a BONUS star to someone who wins maybe three or four games in a row. Thank you very much for reading!
  14. How's everybody's ranked going?

    I know I'm duplicating some other topic in all likelihood but whatevs. ...I've been focusing on the North Cape mission myself so haven't played much....hey I can't get aggro from losing stars if I don't play, right? And am I the only one who thinks the rewards need to be sexier?....the free premium for a day should probably be repeated every other rank....is that asking too much?...15 or 25 of every flag doesn't really seem to cut it.....maybe an option for one or the other?....just spitballing as usual.. ....--CT
  15. NOLA was my choice for ranked

    When Ranked battles season started, in piers I had Lex and North Carolina. Long ago, I had sold my Bismarck and tried with North Carolina because the AA is relevant for me. I play mostly with CVs so I started with Lexington and almost immediately I realized that I have 1 out 3 chances to climb up to ranks 10. Enterprise without T9/T10 AA around, has almost all the advantages and no weaknesses. Is like a Midway in play. Shokaku is always complicated to face but in ranked is almost like Haku not to mention those with AS loadout. In ranked, with few ships, most of them with poor AA, Lex is not a good prospect. After I hearing in the chat someone complaining about NOLA in ranked, her weaknesses an so on, I asked if he has defensive fire. Answer `No` but radar he has. He has minimum chances to use the defensive fire because CV in ranked are not frequent and when in play, planes stay 7 kms away. Truth is that NOLA has a decent AA. So, defensive fire in ranked? Hydro is a better choice. Radar? sure. Red team hates radar, so is always the right choice. ThenI start to see the other CAs, Mogami&Atago, Kutuzov/Chapayev Hipper or even Edinburgh, then NOLA looks far more sexy to me. Aside, you wont see Missouri`s, Montanas, Yamatos, that will send you to the showers in one round. Alabama`s are around ok, but you can take some previsions. So, I sold my North Carolina, got my New Orleans again, all gadgets included (this time came with a camouflage as a gift) put Radar & Hydro in, my Steven Seagal captain in full AA and full concealment, and improved rudder upgrade. With this configuration you wont earn credits nor XP, but you will help the team and you will win games. In ranked is all that matters. NOLA is the perfect support ship in a T8 environment. You don't have to exchange shells with BBs but you can if you have to. If the team is good, you locate the red DDs from a stealth position, and they dispatch them. And if CV is in play, you have a decent AA, better than other CAs. I got my 2 starts flags within a week. I stay in rank 10 this season. I also got a Benson and of course I played some with my Lexington, but NOLA was better in this season. If I had Enterprise or Alabama, perhaps I would try another ranks more but 10 is fine
  16. I've been stuck at rank 14 for over a week now. Thus far today I have three wins and three losses, net stars: zero. I guess I'll have to get better so that I can consistently score at the top of my losing team. Any advice for someone stuck in a Ranked rut other than "get gud"?
  17. This one is simple, there have been many times where my team say has 2 Kutov's and the enemy team has 2 chappies. Or we have an atago and an endenburg (who doesn't have radar because he took smoke), while the enemy team gets a chappy, and a New Orleans. 95% of these games its a total slaughter and not a real match up. My suggestion is try to get the match maker to take into account radar ships. There is no way to make this a perfect system due to smoke/radar trade offs with the Pan Asian ships and the brit CL's. I know the MM is set up to match nations heavily, but there needs to be a weight to at least "common" radar ships. I don't mind if one team has a chappy and the other a New Orleans. That is a balance between two different radar types. But when one team gets zero, and the other team gets 1-2, then it becomes a very unfair match up.
  18. who hit rank 1 first?

    I've been looking for a thread for this. anyone know?
  19. I like the new Lexington configuration. I really do. You have now torps, fighters and bombers behind the stock config. It gives you tactical flexibility and in random battles you can do a lot more no matter who is in the red CV because he has more or less the same challenges you have. T9 and T10 AA is common and IJN and Enterprise have to deal with. There are AA all over the battlefield and you can use your AA as fall back point to compensate the fact tha you have a single fighter group. Depending on the battle, you can decide if you defend your bomber squads or if you defend a ship in troubles. Even easier when you are in division. This tactical approach vanishes in ranked. Gameplay is faster and if enemy has 2 fighter squads, then your bombers and your F sqad have minimum chances. Besides, the main weaknesses of Enterprise are erased. She doesn't have to face T9 AA not to mention that there are fewer ships grouped. Enterprise has the same loadout of Midway. I think that lot of Enterprises will climb up to #1 this season. Also Shokaku has the same chances of Enterprise and with the AS option they can have some fun. I put on hold my Lex and I will take her again after rank 11 and try again. But I am pretty sure that thanks to the Darwin process in those ranks I will not face any other Lexington anymore.
  20. One of those days

    Yesterday I finished up early and was looking forward to playing some ranked battles... and I'm thinking RNGesus was not pleased with me... If it could go wrong it did. BB RNG on my puny DD from 20km... deleted (NC) with two hits. Undetected so far in a match, in open water spotting for my BBs, no RPF location either. full double spread of torps suddenly incoming.. wth. half my HP gone. Sneak around the backside of an island undetected, I hadnt been spotted for at least 3 minutes. Charlie Martel with his guns pointed right in my face at 3km... deleted. Those are just some of the dumb luck occurrences. If I could do something stupid I probably did it at one point or another as well. Apologies to all my teammates for any hernia injuries sustained while carrying my sorry rear.
  21. World of Loyangs...

    Seriously, I’ve tried to get into ranked but it’s nothing but endless Loyang spam. There’s no variety, it’s so stale, just like the world of Belfast’s in the ranked season before last. I hate this with premiums being better than tech tree counterparts (Belfast, Leningrad, loyang, de grasse, murmansk, Arizona... etc), it ruins game balance and screws over ranked. I also don’t get why the loyang gets German hydro but the z-23 doesn’t, but that’s another can of worms entirely.
  22. How To: Benson in Ranked

    Actual battle starts at 4:30 Future videos will be edited properly. I don't have the time to learn how at the moment. https://youtu.be/r7LzU2W07y0
  23. Tight maneuvering, great Toroedo reduction values and guns that hit like tanks have compelled me to call the Bama the best BB this season, and play it exclusively. Commentary on its highlights, how I load her out, and on current trends in ranked. This round was crazy. Gotta watch the ending.
