So for this season, ranked is tier 8 till you get to rank 16, then it's tier 10s.

So if you start at 17, win a few matches then ranked is over for the majority.

" You will need ships of Tier VIII for ranks 23 through 16, and Tier X ships for Ranks 15 through 2."

I was playing till I fought to rank 10, guess I won't even bother wasting my time this season.

The time would not be wasted, I would argue. If you don't have any tier X, now or during ranked it would be a good time to grind and get one, as more tier Xs are being sucked up into ranked instead of in random battles!

2,382 battles played and you don't have a tier X ship?  That's a personal decision to avoid the tier.  WG isn't obligated to provide everything for everyone.  You might as well complain that there's no ranked co-op.

I didn't like last season's T10 once you hit Rank 10.  This is even worse.  I have T10's, I just don't like them for Ranked.

I doubt I will even get to Rank 10, this season. :Smile_amazed:

Why would it be worse? It is the same as the last Ranked season.

Not quite.  Last ranked season had tier 8 up to rank 11, then tier 10 starting at rank 10.

If this Ranked Season won't be as popular as previous ones, which will be shown after it's conclusion, I'm sure WG will make some changes. All companies speak profit (and rightfully so), WG is not an exception.

Well, I am looking forward to this season.  Finally have my Hindy and have been practicing quite a bit with Henry, so I am ready.  Also, now have DM and Mino skills a bit developed.  I had always been intimidated by Tier 10 and didn’t like the apparently (and reportedly) passive play style.  As I have become more accustomed to attentive play and listened less to the nay sayers, Tier 10 has become more enjoyable.  The game, as with anything in life, is as enjoyable as I make it.  I just have to stay away from it if I am tired or distracted.  Bring it on!

I'm looking forward to this ranked season. I got to rank 10 the past few seasons but the last one fell at a time when I was especially busy so I didn't have time to play much and only got to rank 13. This season I'm going to see how far I can get. I've got a few tier X ships now too. All of them were ground out after the last ranked season.

It's actually just under 2000. Not sure where the forum gets that number from.

But anyways, while I have an Iowa, I'm just not in a big hurry to get to tier 10, plus I don't have the "funds" to get one.

Tired of them constantly pushing tier 10. It's one of the worst tiers to play by far with how passive it is. zzz. I'd be all up for it in literally any other tier.

Some of us who will start at R13 or 14 won't even get a taste of T8 ships.  This is gonna be a slog......might have to try some non-typical ships to mix it up a bit.

Tier 8 got to rank 10 before it switched to tier 10 as I got rank 10 last season.

It adds in Coop and Scenario battles. Some people only play PvE so if the battles indicator only included Random, Ranked, and Clan battles then they wouldn't have any number at all.

That's a counter of all battles played not just Randoms.

I have to disagree with this.  I'd rather it not be tier 9.  Tier 9 is the one tier where I don't tend to keep ships, and there are very few premium ships.  And certainly none of the ones that I'd prefer to use for Ranked.  Tier 8 is vastly better than tier 9 for Ranked.

Think it's still off as co-op, random and ranked barely make it to 2000 and I don't play the scenarios much as sure as didn't play 300 scenarios.... But anyways....

I've got more than that, and have not been avoiding tier X.  I'm just grinding all lines at once (11 tier 8's in port with a 12th unlocked, and 7 tier 7's).

Not everyone picks a line and shoots straight for tier X.

I'm not really grinding anything to be honest. Just playing & trying to up my average damage now.

Well, with 18 tech tree lines I'm advancing, it's hard to really say I'm "grinding" anything - I used the term fairly loosely.

I like going straight into T10, actually. I still have another 14 legendary modules to grind out :)

I'm looking forward to it..

T10 is a heck of a lot more balanced than T8, and I find 7v7 to be much more exciting T10 gameplay.

I understand the T10 decision because many say it's more or less balanced. And till the Stalingrad we didn't had some OP premiums there.

We had the same when they make T8 ranked. People came and complain about that they don't have a T8. Or bought a premium ship they didn't had a clue how to play it.

T9 has the problem that there are more crap boats then good ones. I also suspect that enough players sold their T9 after they grinded through them.

T8 has a ton of premiums people buy and play without premium consumables and a 3 point captain.

T7 is the most unbalanced tier. So many premiums that are far from being balanced.

T6 is ok, the premiums aren't that much from inbalanced and everyone get there easy.

T5 Kamikazes and Gremlins ftw. Maybe some carriers since there isn't some serious AA at this tier. Everything else is just targets (till the owner of those well balanced boats ranked out)
