Players have been saying they are losing a star even though top of team on losing side this ranked season in the tier 10 part. I thought they were wrong till it just happened to me. Did they post this was a thing this time?

I just read through the Ranked Battles rules on the main site, and it is VERY unclear on this topic.

Below is a quote from the Ranked Battles rules.

Quote

Ranks 23 to 17 as well as Ranks 15, 12 and 1 are irrevocable. Between Ranks 23–20, players don’t lose a star for a defeat, and being the top XP earner on your team in a lost battle keeps your hard-earned star. In the upcoming season we will return the irrevocable status from Rank 10 back to Rank 12, as the decision of moving the irrevocable rank in the previous season was made due to changing the ship tiers available for certain leagues. Now, Tier VIII ships are available only in the Third League, with Tier X ships available in the all other leagues except for the League of Sea Wolves.

 

The highlighted is contradictory.  First is say that between ranks 23-20, players don't lose a star for a defeat, but it then says that you don't lose a star if you're the top XP earner on a losing team.

 

A couple of points earlier in the Ranked Rules is the following:

Quote

Through winning battles, players earn the stars needed to climb the rank ladder. In the case of the majority of ranks, a defeat means a lost star.

 

Again, this is vague.  What ranks are covered by the statement "the majority of ranks"?

Come on, WG, please be more specific!

@Gneisenau013

 

EDIT:  For some reason, my highlights in the quotes didn't take.  Changed it to underlines.

It works. I lost a battle today and tied for top with another player. Both of us retained our star.

I have heard others saying they lost star even though they had the best score on the losing side AFTER they started playing tier 10 part of ranked. I think it may be bugged.

The star system is a bit wonky, but works long term.  Like, sometimes your star count would not update properly and you would "lose" a star you should have kept.  Then you win a game and gain two stars.  Something does not sync right with the server, but eventually you get the right count.

One thing that may be confusing is that you get bonus stars based on your rank in the last season.  I think these replace a lost star as long as you have any left.

Would be great if true. Tough for that zao that sits afk all match waiting to be carried before spamming he in time to not lose his star once everyone’s dead. Oh yes, he ranked out.

that's not how it works. Your stars from last season determine your starting point on this season.

I thought that was how it works at first, but I noticed last season when I should have lost a star I didn't (while not top XP earner).  So, I thought it was the bonus stars.  Perhaps @Femennenly or one of her colleagues could clear this up?

Finally had a chance to log into the game just now.  Looking at the Ranked Battles screen under my Profile, it is explicitly listed when you won't loose a star for being the top XP earner.  Clicking through the Ranks, all of them say the top earner does NOT loose a star.

I would suggest submitting a Support ticket so that WOWS can start looking into it.

It's not a new feature. In fact, it's something many of us have been complaining about for quite some time.

The OP's comment I am replying to was that players ARE losing a star when they are top XP earner on the losing team.

Right. I see. The way he worded it was a bit weird, so I mis-understood it.

Took me a bit to decipher at first, also.

Ok let me clarify this:

Ranks 23-20 = losing team does not lose a star and irrevocable ranks

Ranks 19-18 = losing team loses star except top XP earner

Rank 17 = irrevocable rank

Rank 16 = losing team loses star except top XP earner

Rank 15 = irrevocable rank

Rank 14-13 = losing team loses star except top XP earner

Rank 12 = irrevocable rank

Rank 11-2 = The Crucible (the ultimate endurance test to get to rank 1), losing team loses star except top XP earner

Rank 1 = Tier V (League of Sea Wolves) - irrevocable rank

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the detailed reply.  :cap_like:

It sounds pretty similar to past seasons, with a couple minor tweaks around the edges.

Problem is some top xp earners on the losing team are losing a star. Happened to me yesterday.

Its probably just the ui lag bug that happens every season in the end you end up with the correct number of stars.

There is a visual bug where it may show you losing/gaining a star that does not match your progression because the results are delayed compared to the display. So far, in my two losses where I was highest XP, I did not lose a star.

Question to those losing stars:

If in match you died, did you stay till end of battle or return to port to play another battle?

If you returned to port and started another battle while another was going, perhaps you lost a star in that other battle, even though top XP earner in the second.
