So I know this topic is way old. I just haven't been on the forums in months. So sorry this is a month old topic now. 

But what changes between sprint 1 and 2? Because 2 was single handedly the WORST season of ranked I've EVER played. I felt as if I was being trolled. Never have I seen so many people TRYING To lose a match. I'd run out of reports in just a couple of games. 

 

Example, here is sprint one.

and here is Sprint Two.

The only real difference in my stats between the two beside of obvious w/r, is the k/d ratio. WAY lower because I kept getting teams who didn't shoot anything.

I only played a few battles in Sprint 2 because it did seem less "enjoyable".  My quick conclusion was that adding the extra ships was the cause.

Too much like regular Ranked; I completely agree.

Allost every rank was irrevocable. On a loss you should have come out on top. It was very easy compared to real ranked. The question is will they bring real ranked back, or is clan battles the only way to get steel without paying from now on?

Didn't they only add 1 ship? Or was it two? Weird to think that could be only it.

Added two.  I thought it was a strange change to the feel, too.

It may also have been because it was so close to sprint season 1, I know I had little interest in the working through to rank 1 a second time in a month.

Mo players mo problems. 

8 v. 8 simply gets you more potential goobers to carry.  That's why I haven't bothered to play the 8 v. 8 format.

Ah, so possible a lot of the normal ranked players were burned out or simply didn't play. This right here could explain a lot.

small sample size also thinking of getting 70% wins is a bit unrealistic back to back, what do you get in regular ranked ?  im always mid 50s on win rate.

Yup. Sprint 2 was with 8 people... made it much more harder to carry. In sprint 1 I wouldve careiwd my team to victory even with 3 enemies alive. Unfortunately too many potatoes and I had to jump in my nicholas to frikkin carry myself to rank 1 as all other DDs were just suicidal....

It was the 8v8 format. It was super easy to rank out in sprint 1, because I could actually carry most games. However, in sprint 2, with more players it was much harder to carry and make up the odds. I much prefer 6 per team. I think 8 is way too much, 7 is still kind of meh, but 6 to me felt like the sweet spot.
