Loyang is the king of DD in T8 ranked.  100% agreed with Notser, i haven't run across any other DD i couldn't owned, it allowed me to carry, earned top 1 spot often even on a loss, make tons of credits, and helped me progress from rank 23 to 10 in two nights worth of game plays.

I play ranked for the EXP and Credits I hang in rank 15 and play if i win to 14 I lose to go back to 15. I have no interest in ranking out. The EXP is what I am after. I don't have a stroke from frustration of the yo-yo. I don't Care about Stats. Ranked has become my EXP pinata.

7 Ships make it as long  as a Co-Op battle with better rewards. 

I don't give a rat's bubble behind for a win. Every game I play is in the Black.

Haters gonna Hate.

  No Matter what.

Might as well do this for Me.

I only play till the green flag and I'm done. Total waste of time after that point.

What are we ranked on? How lucky we are to have better players on our team? That basically sums it up lol.

If they want to call it ranked, the winning team should all get one star and the top three XP earners on the team should get an extra star ( they can add a star to each rank to make up for this).
This would reward those who contributed the most and not the players who camped behind an island the entire battle.

This season only should have 1 "recommendation video" and it should be named "DO NOT BRING ASASHITIO INTO RANKED".

I prefer to take advice from one of the top DD players on the EU server:

Flambass woukd never say “Radio Location is useless on Asashio.”

He rambles a bit and the video is painfully long.  However, it’s a far better analysis.

Flambass plays RPF on all his DDs. I think it’s a solid skill you rarely get caught with your pants down

Ranked is most fun for me if I am leveling up a ship or captain and not stressed about winning, still care and try to win, but since I have ships to earn xp on and captains at 17-18 to level it’s the best combination of fun and progress.

I've driven Lo Yang in 25 battles so far and have been doing good with her, she's a sweet cap contester. The hyro is sweet. Add RDF to your Captain and you wont get blindsided by a Red DD suddenly appearing.

Atago is king. Great supportive cruiser for your team’s destroyers. Combined with heal and a great torpedo angle. I personally think it is a way better choice over the Mogami.

Yup, here's another one too.

 

As far as I know, these are the only 3.

Legitimately dominated as in the CVs doing major damage and then killing each other.

I feel like Notser better represents the ability level of the average/slighty above average in a particular ship and is thus more useful for most of the people who watch these vids.

He isn't the only one, i have RPF on ALL my tier 10 ships, including BB and CA, one of the most useful hunting and survival skill and a must have for me.

STINK, I know that this may burst your bubble, but I largely agree with you here.  Oh, I don't really agree with your final paragraph in detail, but I do agree with its underlying sentiment.

What I've said before is that I'd prefer a system of ranking where after the battle, all 14 players were mashed together on a single list, and the follow happened:

  • Top 7 base XP earners earn a star, win or lose.  If you happen to be in the top 7 base XP earners in a loss, you will have had to have played VERY well indeed, since winning boosts your base XP.
  • Bottom 7 base XP earners on the winning team, do not win or lose a star.  You (probably) helped your team win, but really didn't do enough to deserve a star.  And if you can't play well enough to have earned more base XP than a player on the losing team, then you really don't deserve to gain a star, but since you did help your team win, you don't deserve to lose one either.  Play better next time.
  • Bottom 7 base XP earners on the losing team lose a star.  

 

This model rewards both playing to win and playing well. 

Also note that there's no guarantee that the top base XP earner on the losing team will gain a star or not lose one.  You have to play VERY WELL on the losing team to break into the top 7 base XP earners and gain a star.  Just being the least worst isn't enough, which is the problem with the current system.  The only incentive to play well on the losing team is to try to make sure that you do end up as the best loser.  But you can still be the best loser and still play poorly, just less poorly than the other 6 players on your team.  My idea tries to incentive both playing well and playing to win.

I'm not running RPF on my Lo Yang (soon, 18 points) but I've yet to be in a situation where I feel as though I've been caught because I didn't have RFP. I have it on other ships, and I like the skill, I'm just saying that because of the Hydro on the Yangbang you really mitigate the opportunity to be "snuck up" on. It's certainly useful, but not as essential as it might be on other Destroyers. It helps when capping more than anything I find.

I've gone 9 wins, 3 Losses so far on the season. RPF wouldn't have changed much in the losses.

When you say "every game I play is in the Black", are you talking about the ship of that name or the no-financial-loss condition? (Or both. IIRC these high-tier premiums pay very well.)

 

The thought popped into my head today that Ranked must be a bit like co-op battles against live players, but I'm sure it's not entirely true.

Financial only. Yes you are right with the Co-Op comparison. Only difference is the Payouts are better.

RPF suit me as I play very aggressively with my loyang, i was always on the hunt for other ships hiding/camping/fleeing.  As a predator the RFP help me triangulate and pin point their direction, it's sort of like a compass assisting me to hunt down all of them, and where i should be heading to. I don't use it as a defensive mechanism for loyang, it's solely for predatory purpose.

 

For BB, the RPF tells me if there's DD sneaking from behind.
