All Right: The comments made by the CCs Flambass and Noster about the Tier 3 Russian BBs and their counterparts from other countries indicated low tier disrespect and outright bashing. The co-op play segment of WOWs seems to like the relaxed pace afforded by Tier 2-5 games. The CCs do not seem play low tier anymore and bash it unnecessary. I was especially surprised on how much bashing the Kawachi, the Turraine, and the South Carolina get. Some people "enjoy throwing rocks." All of the Tier 3 ships, including the Dreadnaught itself, are sub 21 knot ships for a reason. They all were pre-dreadnaughts reworked into the category. The Dreadnaught itself was armed with 305 mm naval rifles stripped from 3 pre-dred ships the British were building at the time. The British probably pulled the Turrets from those ships as well. None of those vessels had radar, sonar, or even Flak guns when the actual ships was commissioned. The main air threat in 1910 was not from planes but from Zeppelins flying overhead. The Italians harassed the Austro-Hungarian Navy to good effect with Zeppelins during the First World War. Zeppelins also burned part of London during 1915 and 1916 due to a lack of Flak guns and proper incendiary ammunition. Anyhow, you gun range and accuracy will not be as good as with Second World War guns. Your engagements will have to be close (less than 10 KM). Expecting Tier 8 standards is not realistic. Just because you have not played Low tier in 3 years does not mean you should bash it. Your fighting tactics are different at Tier 3-4. This is why I would like to see Ranked at Tier 4. The hot shot super Unicom players would definitely have to change play style in order to not be sunk since the gun ranges are half that of Tier 8-10 ships. CVs are also few and far between at low Tiers, especially since the CV rework. Finally, lower end computers have fewer issues with low tier matches than high tier matches. Each Tier has it own unique traits to it. There is no need to bash low Tiers. I play for fun, not for stats or bragging rights. The Tier 10 hotshots seem to take the game a bit TOO seriously especially in chat. NJRoc

TRAILER V General rules for the event: Try to stay in a battle line formation as much as possible. Battleships/battlecruisers will be using AP only.

Based on what I read in the latest news on the next rank season, it is going to be for Tier 10 only. It is a bad idea. There are not going to be many players for this event. WOWS might be better off dropping Rank to Tier 4. The slower pace would refocus the Unicom types on slower ships and shorter firing ranges. It would also expand the number of players trying out Rank for the first time. It was not a good idea to scuttle Tier 4 in the first place for the in-game contests. Focusing on a Tier that many players NEVER get to devalues Rank. NJroc
