Because a 3 man division of good players would have an insanely high winrate. Divions have so much influence on randoms, just think how much influence one could have in a game with less people.  Ranked is supposed to be a single player skill thing even though that isnt really how it works.

Seriously?

 

If you need to guarantee victory, why not just have WG flip a coin before each match, and have the teams draw straws to see who doesn't lose a star. Divisions are strong, and in a battle with 7 players, even a 2 man div would completely skew the game in that team's favor.

Division in competitive? I believe those are called Clan Battles. Solo competitive = ranked. 

You already got what you wanted.

Because Ranked is supposed to be about the individual. That is why I would like to see the impact of the team reduced, it can never be completely removed, by going to a top 12(?) base experience receive a star. Losing stars would need to be revamped because of this but maybe just make it that if you are not in the top group work like advancing/losing league position in CW where if you are not in that you have to be in the top group 3 out of 5 matches or you lose a star.

Ok considering the fact that I am new to the Wargamming forums, I have yet to figure out how to start a response for myself. So with this being said, I have to piggy-back on your post atm.

I have an issue with logging into the game. I am blocked with buffering at the ID and PW stage to where I cant type that info in. How can I fix this or what can be done?

many do. its just not called divisions. It's called drop syncing, and while I hate and won't explain how easy it is to take advantage of, I bring it up with the hope that WG changes their que mechanism to help stop this practice.

As long as the people sync dropping treat the other people that dropped with them as Red = Dead there is no problem. This would be more of an issue if the top by base experience proposal was in play but even then helping another player in ranked would still be hurting yourself.

yes, but that doesn't happen, if the intent is to circumvent the fair system, what makes you thing that said players will be fair in game? especially in voice coms....when they drop three and its two vs one and they are telling each other where to go or allowing their own ship to be killed to funnel xp to their friend.....

I know it doesn't happen often, but there are some that do it non stop. Ever wonder how some in the same clan all rank out at the same time and almost the exact amount of games?

You are correct but unless you can catch them in the act with a replay it is almost impossible to prove. It is also impossible to stop so all we can do is hope that the majority are playing to win and not to sabotage the match in favor of another player.

Fully agree and it doesn't happen often. Again I only bring it up with the hope that WG reads this and puts the ranked que in some sort of scrambler mode to help stop this practice completely.

That is a good idea. I wonder how much something like that would impact que times? If they could keep that comfortably under one minute it wouldn't be an issue but there would still need to be a circuit breaker for low population times since Ranked is available 24/7 during the season.
