The questions I have are:

1) When will it start? (My gut instinct tells me August 20th, which could be a pain as I will be away the first half of September).

2) Which tier or tiers will be involved? (Please WG, for the love of God, make it homogenous this time.)

3) How much advance warning will we get, in case we're considering shifting captains about?

I really hope it isn’t T10 again. First Ranked I refused to play, as I didn’t want to get dragged down playing 200-300 battles in a Mino in such a radar heavy environment, losing ng credits every battle.

Tier 6 or GTFO

Agreed, T6 is clearly the most balanced - and no radar to trigger massive complaints...

Earliest patch day will be 22nd, so not before that date. Better stop listening to your guts.You get a soonish warning if the PTS patchnotes will mention ranked battles.

Tier 6 and 8 are my favored tier for ranked. Almost all of my favorite ship are in those tiers. Though now I have a few fun tier 7s at least.

WOW take here. Soon. Im kinda looking forward to it myself. Miss pulling my hair out, getting frustrated, missing work, being told I suck, staying up late, wife getting mad, staying at one rank for three weeks etc. Man I miss it.

I think it was late in the year, last year. They gave us a long break from the spring season of ranked before another one.

If it's tier 10, I wont be doing it.

I'd love it if it was tier 6.(De Grasse, Perth, Monaghan) Lower tiers like 3 or 4 would be fun too. That would give us a reason, other than seal clubbing, to drive our low tier botes.

Probably to prepare ships and Commanders.  I have all of the tiers covered now, but a year or so ago, I had to grind to get ships and Commanders ready for Ranked.

I say they go Level 3 or 4!  It would be a blast.... esp. since you have to have reached level 14+ or something to be able to participate..... imagine all those little twerp ships roaming around firing.... I'd take my vampire or Nassau and rock the ocean!

Honestly, as much as I think that tier 6 is balanced, I'd hate the damned smoke soup without a tool for dealing with it.  I'd rather have to deal with radar than all that smoke.

You can almost bet it will be tier 10 with the Stalingrad coming out soon. I hope not but you know it will more than likely be that way.  :Smile_hiding:
