I have the same luck.  Lost 7 in a row yesterday. Been rank 15 with 0 stars for 2 days now.  I just think of the garbage players on the other team that are being carried to the top.

Eventually the tide has got to turn, right?

I had to completely remove myself from the game yesterday.  Told the wife not let me play it at all.  School during the week, we will see if I can even play a match.   Doing your best not to lose the match for the team, stay alive, stay alive.  Only watch helplessly as the other around you fold.  It was not fun.  Had match I got taken out early, watch the team come back and only to have a 2 on 1 in the end and the dd just need to stay in the smoke rolled out with 120 hp and get deleted in the last 50 secs.  The other one just needs to do a ram, instead turned to launch torps.  :Smile_facepalm:    It was rough.

Yep its been insane all right, played 1 in the Monarch and lost, then 8 straight wins in my German Z Destroyer, crazy to have teams that were talking and working together in ranked. I am at 15 so I got my flag, will do a few more for the rewards until I meet up with the Potato teams.

As I keep saying, trying to pull your team to victory in ranked is like trying to stop the river from flowing over the falls.   You can do your best and save some, but the vast majority are just hell bent determined to take the plunge.

I've had no issues playing a DD this season.  I decided to bring out the Kutuzov for one game and the entire team folded in under 6 minutes.  Either way, I'm still 6-1 this season in the limited number of games I play.

Also if you think the teams at toer vlll are bad LOL you're mistaken! 

At tier X (rank 10-5 bracket) there are three people purposely sailing around battles then hitting ships only once then sailing away into oblivion being useless. I think it was a gearing, hindy and shimakaze. Had the hindy on my team once and the gearing 6 times.... not allowed to share names otherwise i would

Ranked, just like playing in Las  Vegas, ride the winning streaks, walk away early from the losing streaks- doubling down when losing never works.  

Overall have been happy with ranked play, have had some great teams, so far 17 to 13 with not too big a time commitment.  Been leaning on my Kutz, seems to bring something to the table - had my first losing streak - two games in a row, dropped back to 14, walked away for awhile, changed it up, ran my Harakaze win, back to 13- then back to Kutz, Loss but kept the star.  Overall, enjoy tier 8 play, nice to really play my tier 8 ships against tier 8 ships (not tier 10 like usual)

This is my 6th season and this one is by far the worst I have seen so far.  If it wasn't so sad it would be a very funny saturday night live skit.

Similar experience here.  In my first season I have gone from Rank 23 to rank 15 in 17 battles.  Have had real good 'luck' in the Kutuzov and mixed but still favorable results in other ships.  Saved stars in two of the losses.

My suggestion, play the ship you can carry the best in and stay alive. For me this progression is DD>CA/CL>BB. In previous ranked seasons I would try to play them like randoms, being too aggressive, you have to walk the line between passive and aggressive, know when to hold back, know when to push. I found myself trying too hard to win, that ended up with me getting killed and I am 0 help to team when that happens.

My zen moment last season was when I decided I was only going to do what was necessary to win. Only take favorable engagements, don't try to take caps that are protected by radar, let the radar run out, then cap, etc... My WTR tanked, buy my WR shot up, and thats all that matters in ranked, wins.

So far, worked my way from 15 to 13 in fairly short order but find myself stuck at 13 with a string of very bad teammates.

The worst was having all 3 caps on Sea of Fortune with a significant point lead (800 vs 550) with a Loyang / Prinz Eugen (my team) against a single Alabama. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how this should be played out. And yet, the Loyang decides to leave his smoke to make a torp run, beaches himself while trying to launch his torps, sends the torps anyway only to have more than half of them explode on the beachhead. After he fails to sink the Bama, he decides to ram it???!!!!! Shortly afterward, the PE exposes himself and the Bama finishes him off. From the clutches of victory, our team managed to snatch defeat :(

this season is really bad in quality, what i saw in r10-6 queue I never saw before and I ranked out in 7 seasons out before in very decent amount of games.

DD suicide rushing a DM, Montanas losing full HP against a stationary DM, DMs that go yolo into the cap and die after 3 mins. a team of 6 people loses against 3, as I hold of the other side of 4 people. Lemmings on one cap only to get conered and die. A shima smoked, torped in like 20km range turned back and die from torpedos behind us all at the beginning of the match...

Let´s see what r5 queue got. I hope for the best.

I'm more perplexed as to this so-called "balance" when it comes to MM. You're either on a team that dominates or gets dominated. As per old mate at the start, I've forced myself to take breaks and that's even now during what would be "school time" here in NA. I'd almost prefer to have a yolo player in my team than the timid players as of late. Had multiple examples of times where I've rushed DD's in smoke to hydro em and for the rest of the team to not shoot for fear of returning fire.

I have to agree, I do not think this current method of "Ranked" battles is the correct measure of ones mettle...not by a long shot. Maybe instead of piss and moan...and I do it to don't get me wrong, we can come up with a better solution to the problem. We all like to be challenged and compete ...not sure how we can climb a ranked ladder when people on your team yank it out from under you whether inadvertently or purposefully or ignorantly? Maybe to individually play against gradually harder groups of small AI hard bots...gradually increasing in difficulty? Either by your self or even be given a couple of AI escorts each mission?....my 2 cents.
