Just got to rank one. Gotta say, this season was sooo much more fun than regular ranked, because tier 5 is such fast-paced in-you-face action, and because being able do division and thus rely on someone makes things a lot less frustrating.

Got to rank 5 alone (mostly Gremmy games), and then ran a Kami/GC division with my clanmates (probably best ship combo for current meta).

Incidentally, I didn't lose a single game. Not P2W at all! :cap_like:

Divisioned GCs carried my Kami to rank one, so, if anything, BBs should get nerfed!

And thanks! :fish_viking:

Thanks for carrying my butt when I suicided myself a couple of times :)

I made it tonight, took 25 games.  The last star was stressful to get and I spent some time on the see-saw.  Part of it was, I insisted on doing it in my Krasny Krym.

I wish it had been the Clemson instead. That would have been epic fun.

Took me 23 battles to rank 1. I agree this was way more fun than another tier 8 or 10 ranked season.

So between the kami clones the one you could buy before it was pulled from the “store” has a higher win rate. That is interesting.

Ranked out with a bang.

@IronMike11B4O my guess is that it has to do with the paltry damage that DDs can do, unless they are the Kamikaze R. The torps are kind of weak and the guns fairly anemic. I tried playing a DD a few times and it was not a ton of fun. Unlike higher tier Ranked, where DDs can influence the game, in lower tier they really only are good for spotting.

I had a lot of fun with ranked sprint.  I played it all solo but it took a frustratingly large number of games compared to what I am seeing above 

28 victories took 58 battles :etc_swear:

Yeah, the only reason I didn't lose games after rank 5 was because at that point I started playing with a div-mate. I've definitely derped a couple of times in my Kami, including a match where I essentially suicided myself into a Martel at 3km, because in my hubris I thought my torpedoes would definitely kill him, and then they didn't :cap_fainting:

Wow the Acasta and T22 are extremely non-competitive.

The T22 shells were way too floaty for me.  Could never get the hang of it.   But Acasta was rockin' for me.   Gremmy gave me the most issues.     

I'm at T3 (sorry for crashing the thread), but agree with nearly everyone that this was a fun, no-stress event.   It gave me great seat time to work on my DD play.   It needed some work!

And many of my teammates still need that work.   Three minutes in and we're out of DDs.   Not real fun trying to get the Texas (or other BB) to dodge torps all match.    So, if you want something done, jump in the DD yourself, and don't sink quickly.

Though not played as much the Murmansk had one of the highest average damage totals for Tier 5 cruisers it appears. I like playing mine and the spotter plane is a great advantage when used in the right place and time. It felt good to bring her out of port again!

Note: Kami R is pretty OP at tier 5 imho.

Narcisism at its highest.

After you finish to look in the mirror and to tell yourself how good and handsome you are, I DARE YOU to play the second round only in a MINEKAZE. You're good and handsome, so the kind of ship you play certainly doesn't influence your results, isn't it?

So, ONLY Minekaze, and then come here and post your results when you reach rank 1.

Yeah, it looks like. I pity him. He posted his "realization" in another topic, but he felt it's not enough narcissism, so he opened his own topic now.
