Started at 5.0 today, made it to 5.1, fell back to 6.0

10-6 is barely playable now. It's all bad players.

you can only climb up in rank as good as you are.

I'm at rank 4. I have to admit it is cancer, but if I was 6 getting to 5 would be cake. I could carry the team till rank 5. now I'm just part of the cancer.

It's not a progression bar. You get as far as your skill gets you. if you are no longer able to be the determining factor in your games, you stagnate.

This is why I stop at 15, and only went to 10 once... (I must have been suffering from masochistic insanity that season...)

I don't feel I have the strategic sense to make it work, and I don't have the patience to deal with what @Soshi_Sone went through.

Skill is just one factor. Luck is ultimately what determines whether or not you progress through the ranks.

 

You can only carry so many stupids before your back breaks.

Tell that to the top players who can rank out in sub 100. consistently. Luck is for the people who have to hope someone will be there to carry them.

Well, I've started an approach that has helped with the patience.  Five games a day.  That's it.  Good or bad.  Just see where i end up.

I go for 10 games a day. I climbed from rank 18 to 4 in a week.

Unfortunately I am currently in a slump. down 3 stars, not sure what to do. I know some of it is me. I've had 9 losses tonight, kept my star twice. It's not that I am performing badly but the players I am up against are very skilled.

My attitude is not the best tonight though. Taking a day off will only fuel the madness because I will wonder what I could have done better.

Finally made it to 10 for the first time this season. The rewards are not worth going any further. Camos? For that aggravation? No thank you sirs.  :)

T10 ships costa ton of silver per game. Trying to break even with only seven targets is not fun.

This is precisely why I stopped at R10 last season. I stopped being top 3 on wins, and struggled to keep my star or get #2 on the board on losses. It was obvious that I wasn't helping influence games in that bracket as much as the previous one.

Granted I play Co-Op, Operation Scenarios and also main DDs - so WG pretty much walks on by on the other side of the street when it comes to me as a player. Seeing the imbalance in game just made me find other games to play that work far better for me. If WoWs has something available for the mode I play then I'm in and happy for it - if not then I go play other games just as good (or better for me if I'm honest).

I played this game non-stop for a fair while as the tiers, nations, types of ship proved interesting enough. However, over the year and a bit playing (7,800+ games), I found the investment in me as a player was 'meh!', so my approach to the game became similar. I'm sure others get much more from it and I wish them well; what's the point of playing a game if you don't enjoy it! :Smile_honoring:

 

On a side note, this  month has had me playing more due to more missions being available for me - go figure!

Because when you do step up a rank, the payoff is pretty good. That's why I pay it. The big thing for me is to know when to pull the plug.

face it below 55% WR need not apply  (don't even think about  pressing that battle button !!) you have to be good enough to carry almost every match because 80% of your team is below/or average WR  -  below 55% you're just helping better players keep their star - you're welcome lads !. ( I've helped many keep their star)   lulz..

If I could change one ting about this whole ranked it would adding another safe harbor on the way to rank one. Maybe to keep people happy, you could only fall back to it three, four or five times (pick  one) then no mo safe harbor. It would allow for the aberrations everyone tells us is a normal distribution of player skill. :cap_like:

Ranked does not interest me one bit, sure, a few flags, they're nice, I do not have the drive to bother with it.  I have listened to to people on teamspeak talk about their woes, they're slowly progressing, but in the end, I would rather be here saying I can't be bothered with it to much.

I'll have a few more games in it to get to 10, maybe, but I am never going to grind it like some have.

For those who do reach rank 1, congrats, well played and well deserved.

I have no idea. To me, none of the unique ships are worth the aggravation. Moreover, as more time passes and each new one added requires additional rank one seasons layered on, it increasingly becomes a "special super-awesome friends-only club" kind of thing. Or, to put a different spin on it: it's like strapping on your crampons at the foot of Everest and watching the mountain get taller as you sit there. Why even begin that climb?
