Ranked Has Me Frustrated

The main reason that I'm thinking about giving up on Ranked this season is the attitudes of many of the players.

In Randoms, you get some "salt" but, since it's of little real consequence whether you win or lose most of the time, the salt is limited. However, in Ranked you see an overabundance of foul-mouthed, whiny, petulant people who will lambaste you in the game if you don't do what they think you should and even follow you to Port to keep up their tirades.

Bad verbal behavior seems much worse this season than in the past too. Up until this week I only had one person on my blacklist because he followed me to Port and started a tirade. Now, I have several on it for the same reason. I believe that for the rest of the season I'm going to turn off chat at the first taste of "salt" and just do my own thing.

That's not to say that all teams are like this. I've been on teams, even losing teams, where the players were informative, cordial, and even funny. However this is exceedingly rare.

I'm stopping for a few days because ranked has gone horribly for me and 80% of games end up with me hard tilting and salting.

No, you accuse the whiner of trying to steal your salt mine rights, and insist he apologize for offending the salt, and mock him w/ lots of "sprinkles more salt on your crying" until he storms off.

I don't play much until after 10 and until 2 or 3 AM and don't see so much of that stuff. I may just not be paying attention.

the people that put me on tilt are the ones playing for star saving. usually in a Harugumo, khaba or a conqueror.

I rarely see such content but it does happen. 

Tip to players new to ranked or haven't played clan battles, don't play it like randoms or be surprised by torps or being paddled when you sail broadside

Sound like a normal season of Rank, if I'm being honest.

I feel your pain.  It's the new generation of gamers who have realize or at least think that they can bully and do what they want hidden behind their computer screens.  Its sad really, but you are right, this season has been the worse and there have been a couple matches where I just parked my ship in the middle and watched the chaos.

The exchange rate is 0 but it doubles every week. The same rate of pay my Dad gave me when I worked for him as a kid. I did learn how to build a house though.

hey man, if you start to loose more than two games in a row, just take a break from ranked, and go play the operations, co-op or some random battles for a little while, and then try ranked again after an hour, it helps a lot.

Most of the times those are the players camped so tight up against an island they couldn't possibly have a target to shoot at...if it's somebody up front I will try & give them a rundown of my strategy (if it differs from theirs) if it isn't too late to explain w/out putting myself in a bad position...but if they just keep pinging the map I'll just ignore them...I won't block them from chat though...some of the funniest times in this game has been laughing my [edited]off at the retarded things people say when they chase me back to port.

First ranked season for me and it's been so far so good. Some salt and some frustration but nothing out of control - yet. I hit R10 this evening so we'll see how the 10-6 bracket is.

I kind of want to stay right here (plus the Rank 15 permanent flag this season isn't catching my attention).

One guy followed me to Port and started cussing me out in Spanish. I know a bit of Spanish but I had to translate most of what he said before deciding to blacklist him.

The longer a game survives the more jerks you accumulate. A part of this is players who sucked when they joined but are now OP.....many of these, not all, can be haughty. Ego stuff. YOU noob, you are messing up my scared stats. WoT is a classic for this dynamic. BUT WOW is still pretty nice IMO.  It's ok.
