The parameters of the event were clearly stated.

Quote

Between Ranks 23–16, battles will involve Tier VIII ships only. For Ranks 15–2, battles require ships from Tier X. Commanders who achieve Rank 1 can, of course, continue playing against each other with ships from Tier V.

It is strange they decided to push the tier 10 threshold so early this time compared to rank 10 in last season.

Didn't even get to try playing tier 8 ranked ships, which I would have wanted to try seeing the new tier 8 cleveland in action.

Same as last season. 

Except T10 ships kicked in much later, at R10.

@Sinton Did you even bother to read the Ranked Battles information for this season. It was in the news even before Clan Battles expired.

I have never spent the effort to hit Rank 1, but the challenge has always tempted me.

Until this season.

T10 from R15 on???  Pffft.  No thanks.  I have them, just don't care to grind them.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and deduce you didn't read any of the Ranked info, because it was there, in advance, clear as day.

Tier X from ranked 15 to ranked 2, man that is a grind for even those who don;t play tier X often. As for me, it will convince me to grind out the Legendary mods, but I am tier X burnt out since last Ranked season. GL to those who are trying to rank out this season. You have my admiration

Regardless if he read the rules or not, I do agree with the premise that more/new players should not be alienated from one of the biggest events in the game. It could easily be argued that its a blatant attempt to force players to spend more money so that they can play ranked ever the next several weeks.

This is what I like about reading on my computer -- I can easily increase the font size to a point that I actually can see it.

I think the T10 requirements are WG's response to the hundreds of comments about players not bothering with finishing tech tree lines. So if you want the rewards you need to get the big boats now.

Guess they do pay attention to what's post in forums after all.

Whether an individual wants to grind through 8/9 is his/her choice...all tier tens take a significant commitment. I can see many a player quitting on the Izumo (pre buff) and starting another line. The other real insult to tier 10 at rank 15 is that you may only need 7 or 8 wins to drop from the 20's to not being able to play.

the business model should be make the game more enjoyable to increase potential spend by all players, not pay more just so you can play.

Thread after thread complains about ranked, very few if any are about how much they love it. I have no complaints with ranked play, I just don't want to see many of the playerbase alienated and turned off....we need as many happy players/customers as possible.

I like ranked, if the players are serious about it and cordial in chat. I've noticed a difference once it got to tier X levels. It takes some commitment to the game to grind out a tier X. It took me a year and a half of play to do so.

Is it a wonder that the very people that can't be bothered to read the forums, or the in-game announcements are the very people that can't manage to hold a 50 percent win-rate after over 5k games?

I hear ya, I just watched a replay of my last battle and got to read some of the battle chat. It's a good thing I don't read that during the battle. I also wonder how anyone can pay attention to what's going on while they are typing so much.

Got that. I pushed the F10 or F12 at the start of the two I played in Alabama, and ignored the chat (1 win-1 loss, up 1 rank). I did not see any useful suggestions in chat in either game. The salt shaker was used liberally by most folks. For me, not worth the hassle...
