Ranked is frankly a mess. This season was Tier 7 premiums galore with the best line ships sprinkled in. Plus no irrevocable ranks past 12 makes it not so much a test in skill insomuch perseverance.

 

My changes I'd make are as follows. 4 irrevocable ranks. 20, 15, 10, 5. That's it.  Second, for tiers from 21(? or whatever the lowest rank is) to 11, tier 5. I mean let's face it. With how MM is, these ships don't get much place to shine. And in tier some of the better balanced ships around.

 

10 and down is tier 6, again screwed over by normal MM but by and large, again decently balanced. And not overblown by premiums with insane consumables, no radar, etc.

 

IMHO those couple of changes would really help ranked out a lot and breath some life into tier 5 and 6 since these days they are completely shat upon by standard MM.

 

ISSM bless him had some inspired words to say in another thread. And either turn ranked into a truely ranked competition and get rid of ranking out, or make these rewards a true grind out scenario.

I'll second this proposal! I agree that T5 and T6 need some love.

I am fine with tier 7, but they should improve the base exp. Should be equal for all ships, instead of giving some premiums a base exp boost.

 

Isnt Sims the only one with a boost to the base exp?

I agree that the safe ranks should be for each league break. And as long as Rank is only One tier of ships I'd be happy.

Totally agree on the irrevocable levels... Especially the 5. 

 

As for the tiers, I seem to recall a lot of players weren't happy with the change in tier midway.  One tier all the way seems to make the playerbase happier.

 

Last time for me, I  didn't have a problem with the tier switch, but stalled out by the long grind with no more irrevocable ranks..

Its a guessing game on what tier next rank season will be, I would appreciate more warning on what that will be as for irreconcilable ranks I dont mind the current season as I dont play to get to 1 just dont have the time nor the interest in the long grind but do like the rewards to 10 , were I stopped

Ranked should be about playing X number of games and getting a ranking/rating based off of your performance in those games.

You know, like what happens in sports leagues or motorsports.

 

Unlike what we have now, which is an endless grind fest based largely on your luck to score those consecutive wins to rank out.

ALL ships have a base XP multiplier. Not just some premiums. Every single ship has one. It's part of the game.

Right but one ship that I know of, the sims, has a greater multiplier to its base exp than any other ship, including premium.  This makes it easier for someone to retain a star in a losing match.

It's to offset the fact that Sims is a weak ship.

All good points. Tier 5-6 would make for a great ranked season, while adding those irrevocable ranks will lessen the salt.

That's pretty subjective.  She's the fastest USN Destroyer and the most agile with a 500m turning radius and 2.7 second rudder shift.  Combine that with being able to stock stealth fire and the fastest ROF at tier 7 and you've got some pretty significant advantages.

 

I think it's unfair to have any ship in game have more of a multiplier to its base exp.  If it truly is because it isn't very good then why haven't they done that with any other "weak" ship?

I like the idea of another irrevocable rank at 5, but for me the rewards are what keep me going, and this season had the absolute worst rewards at ranks 9 - 2.
