Good luck to you this season, Pelican.

With the continually diminishing rewards for Ranked play though, I doubt I will be giving it much of a go this year.  The time invested simply isn't worth what is gained in return for me.

If they had made it T9, I'd have some interest for it being something different.  But T8 Ranked is basically just a re-hash of past seasons with some new ships mixed in.

I kinda feel the same. T9 would have been a blast and T8 feels like a replay of Benson.

Was waiting for it to start also. Watched the clock tick down. Ended last season at 12 and started this one at 17. I thought you were supposed to gather all the rewards from 22 to your starting rank.

I shall get into the Holiday spirit by hating all human beings after 2-3 ranked matches.

To the DD who won’t cap

To the cruiser hiding behind a rock and typing angry commands to the rest of his team

To the BB sailing off alone to “snipe” while ignoring any and all objectives

And to the CV who keeps all of his fighters with his bombers while providing zero scouting and ignoring enemy DDs because they don’t boost damage count, then shrieking at his team of “losers” after they are all dead 

Merry Christmas!?

Play a ranked battle, afterwards all the rewards between the lowest rank and where you start will be credited.

Are you guys nuts?  T9 would have sucked BIG TIME!!!  Too many T9's stink and only the most hardcore, never sell a single ship player is going to keep more than 1-2 of them (not counting those who have the Missouri).  At least at tier 8, a lot of players probably have some premium ships in their ports to work with that they wouldn't have sold.  I have very few regular tier 8's left.  Some, but not many, and those I do have don't have particularly good captains because their original CO's got "promoted" into higher tier ships.

I have 4 T9s in port...

Not counting the Missouri, which I just picked up... I don't know exactly how many I have, but it's damned few.  Possibly even only 1, the Fletcher.  I still have the Iowa, but I'll likely be  selling it soon (if I haven't already) because I do have the Missouri and would like to free up the credits and the port slot.

In truth, there are very, very few tier 9's that I think are worth keeping.  Were it not for the Missouri, I'd have kept the Iowa, I suppose.  And the Fletcher will be hard to every part with.  But I think that's it.  There are some decent ships at tier 9, but also a number of paywall stinkers.  At least at tier 8, there are (a) a lot of useful premiums that you can move your well trained captains into, and (b) the cost to rebuy regular, non-premium tier 8 ships isn't as costly.  Heck, arguably, there are fewer stinkers at tier 8 than tier 9.  And in Ranked Battles where all ships are tier 8, there's obviously no risk of ending up as bottom tier in a tier 10 battle.

And for those of us who have never played in Ranked games, doing it for T8 is fine thank you very much.  I started in August, and Ranked Play was over with when I got to Rank 14 (the minimum rank to start playing Ranked).

Missouri, Fletcher, Lion, Roon and Baltimore would like a word with you. :)

Can't speak for the Lion, but I played the Roon and Baltimore.  And while they were both good ships, I had exactly zero desire to keep them, knowing that it's a relatively rare thing for them to be top tier.  As for the Missouri and Fletcher, read on and you'll see that those are the only 2 tier 9's I have kept (well, of course I'm gonna keep the Missouri!).

If there is a bright side to Ranked being Tier 8 - and there aren't many considering the paltry rewards and unending pain of the grind - it's that you can simultaneously work on your Yamamoto Isoroku and Honorable Service campaigns. They require T8-T10 ships.

Edit: turns out that you can only get campaign stars from Random battles. So there's that.

Iowa doesn't suck either, BTW. Since we were discussing T9 ranked battles Roon and Balty are both fine in Tier 9.
