Played one game. Lack the Moxie to play any more.. Granted I will but, my top three quickie suggestions:

 

1) Change the tier, we just did this.

2) Change the tier, we just did this.

3) lastly, since we just did this, if we were to change the tier it might seem fresh.

 

Those would be my suggestions concerning sprint ranked. I love the concept. Tier 3, or 4... I hit the tab for ranked and all the usual suspects from October showed up.

I'd be interested if CVs weren't allowed, but half my ranked games had a CV captain who was apparently trying CV for the first time ever?    

 

Its not fun.

Agreed on the newb CV drivers. They should not be in Ranked if less than, say 100 PvP games.

seeing as how I made ot to rank 5 on this account (started on the last day.. LOL) and ranked out on the other.... I do not mind the madness and change from random battles with 12 players to random battles with 6.... seems easier...

It's a test of the sprint ranked and it's already really short in needed stars and timeframe. A change of tiers isnt needed yet.

I just saved a star while being first blood... I got a cap... rest of team did nothing.  What does anyone really expect out of it?  Don't like it, don't play.

I can buy that. And frankly, I love the concept.

I know, right? I didn't lose a star in the first mini season. Even in wins, the teams were way...we'll go with "worse" than usual Ranked.

APA, like RipNuN2 said, these two Ranked Sprint seasons are tests.  I think that they're at the same tier so that the data collected between the two Sprint mini-seasons is consistent.  That is, while they're changing the number of ships for Sprint season 2, they want to keep the tier the same for the sake of data comparison.  That's what I'd do if I was running such a test.  Limit the number of variables to those things being tested.

I agree with both of you and it makes sense, I will add, my use of the word Mini, was misplaced, its a mini rant, not a rant on the mini season. I really like this, and it everyone can play.

I don't know.  Tier 3 seems like it'd be too slow.  BBs aren't that much faster at tier 5, except for the Kongos and the GC.  But at tier 3, there are still a lot of cruisers that are just about as slow as the BBs.  It doesn't sound like that much fun to me.  But who knows.  I suppose a tier 3 Ranked Sprint might be doable, given how short Sprint seasons are.

Oh, I realized that your post was a "mini rant", not about "mini seasons".  No worries on that count.

Would be on the low tier Map which are tiny so... Battles might even be faster. Would not mind seeing the sprint format rotate thru all tiers.

well...isnt this what the mini-season was designed for?  to give those that don't have the higher Tier ships, in the reg season, a chance to rank up....:Smile_amazed:

No, not really.  It was designed to try to get more players participating.  They could have just done a tier 5 regular Ranked season to accomplish that you said.  This is a test, actually a test in two parts (i.e. two seasons of Sprint).

I agree that it'd be nice to rotate through other tiers like tier 4, tier 3 or even tier 6.

However, IMHO, 2 tier 5s in a row is a helluva lot better than tier 10 time after time after time.

Its great, different feel already. With eight players the meta has changed....

To be honest, I enjoyed the rank sprint 2 season. 

The T5 is still great, last sprint was a BB only sprint, this time, it was a DD only with the Minekaze. There are lots of fun ships for diverse play at T5. Even CVs have been novel in games as most have been good players that have duelled one another.

I enjoyed the first stage. I would have put a little more time between stages though, perhaps a week. Having them run back to back like this sort of invalidates the whole sprint concept.

Since this is a "test" lets try for once with no premiums allowed.  I mean this could just be renamed the Giulio Cesare , Kamikaze ranked season with some Okt Revolution for spice.

Or at least preclude those ships that have been pulled for being OP.  Though TBH, in the few games I've played I haven't seen that many of the Kami sisters.  But I didn't play a lot in the first sprint, and only one or two battles so far in this one.

Season 2 is definitely a little different pace I think.. the added ships seem to be changing the meta to something a little slower.   seeing more cruisers and DDs are not quite as influential.  Only 8 games in....  But I'm liking it so far..  Haven't decided about the tier yet.   I think if you went up to T7 the maps would be too small and that would require some more work.   Maybe 6?
