How many seasons before WG realizes save a star is bad?

Seriously? I have been in games where guys were like "we are staying in our cap and farming damage because its safer, we will move out if something happens".

Like really?

 

The entire system is bias towards certain ships/classes such as the Hindy/ConQ-BBs, ect.... DDs basically don't play the same ranked as they can almost always forget about saving a star....

 

The entire meta in ranked would shift if WG would remove the silly "save a star" for being earning the most xp non-sense. Its not needed, it causes drama, it reduces ranked play to passive damage farming, it basically sucks!

 

Please fix!

That's tier ten game play and WG never admits they have made a mistake, so when people don't like something it stays the same.

SPOILER ALERT!! They did way back in ranked. Just a few seasons ago it seems like, no matter what, the losing team would lose a star.  Guess what? The meta was the same. You can’t change the meta with such suggestions as for whatever reason, the NA server has this meta is ingrained through every mode but CW because at least in CW you act as a cohesive team. 

How to change the meta: introduce ship lines that directly counter said meta, ie. RN DDs and Kitakaze/Harugumo.

LWM and iChase, to name two cc's gave different options for Ranked progression which didn't rely on saving stars to progress. I can see how this mechanic can be abused, because no matter the structure, there's always an angle

Yea buddy, you did well...... I was happy with the outcome of that round. I only played the henri that one cuz I got annoyed the game before and decided to work on grinding the Henri legendary mod and not caring about win/loss lol....

 

Its always nice to see forum guys in games.

That was one of my "better" rounds in the wooster. It is very situational and I have not learned to carry in it yet..... All in all not a bad ship for me though.

Its a hard one to carry in I feel like, I mean I have seen it done, but I can't figure it out. I mostly play my Zao in ranked because its the t10 I'm best with. I have been improving my henri play and getting really good at making people miss. 

 

I got the Zao, Henri, Repub, Khab, Mino, Worchester, Haragumo, DM.....

 

The Khab and hara I wouldn't dare bring into ranked, I have played a bit with wooster but mostly Zao. I hate the DM.

WG has no interest in making ranked fun or remotely enjoyable.  The only way they can get people to play is by stuffing more and more "rewards" into it to try and entice people to play.  It is sad they put so much effort into operations, april fools etc into making them fun events to play, but ranked is just an afterthought.  They change a few rewards and that is it.  We had tier 8 ranked for 3 seasons in a row, and ranked 2 twice.(and all the other stuff that encourages playing tier 10 ships like clan battles)

@Slumlord_Cheeto Early on in ranked complaining about getting kicked back so often is why the Save a Star was put in. So its about time I suppose for that to change to placate the special players!

I'm not sure why There isn't a way to get a double star. They should do something like 3 wins in a row = double star.
