Is your Ranked WR better than your Randoms WR?

Boy, Mine sure is.

I've played every ranked season and sprint after the first.

380 battles, 56% WR overall, 1535 XP, 0.95 frag rate. I have a total of 4 sprint battles in a Division.

37% survival rate playing DDs 92% of the time.

In Randoms I have a 52.88% overall WR, with a 53.64% WR in DDs. 28% Survival rate.

Now, I've only bothered to rank out once - the most recent Sprint.

I was thinking that the reason I'm doing better is because I wasn't going into the "tougher" matches. But my WR for the event I did complete was 71% and I won my last 4 in a row, carrying hard in a couple of them, to finish. And, the POINT of ranked is to pair you with other players of approximately the same performance, so...

So, I don't know what to think. Ranked is easier than randoms?

Or maybe it's just easier to do DD stuff when there's limited opposition? But less opposition means less opportunity to do stuff too, so...

IDK.

What are your thoughts and experience?

Your random battles include everything since the beginning.

Your rank battles are for a more experienced version of you.

It looks like in all the "regular" ranked seasons you've done, you haven't sunk a lot of games into them so even with your good winning rate you've only gone beyond Rank 10 once.  So mostly you're matching up against people in the bottom half of the player-base, skillwise.  If you continued on and logged a lot of battles in the 10-6 and 5-2 brackets your ranked win rate would probably be closer to your random win rate, or possibly worse.

Ranked sprint is a different beast with fewer stars per rank, lots more irrevocable ranks, and there's only one league so everybody's mixed together no matter how good or bad they've been doing.

With a smaller team, a good player and a bad player are way more able to make their presence known. Make a mistake early and the enemy team has a huge advantage. The question becomes who can capitalize on the first mistake. 

But where you play in ranked has a lot to do with win rate. I expect my win rate to be lower the higher league I am in. 

Currently, 61% in solo randoms and 60% in ranked (with some divs in sprint). I'm happy if I can maintain my solo win rate in ranked that I do in randoms.

I've had 80% and above win rates in ranked sprint 3 times but my normal ranked is less than my general win rate. It's all over the place. 

Ive only ever ranked out in ranked sprint but never normal ranked. 

The past 2 days I've gained a 48% win rate but Monday I had a 65% win rate for the day all in randoms. Despite that my average damage score has risen in the last few days too. 

I think that I'm better at figuring things out in ranked with the small teams. The larger teams are all over the place. I can identify patterns in teams during ranked sprint and capitalize on them but during ranked I cant and during randoms its hit or miss. I do think the set Tier for ranked modes helps too.

sprint rankeds are silly, with a division is really easy to win.

Normal rankeds are a hell grinding...

i'm sadily with only 54.68% in rankeds with 3k battles and 60.86% in normal battles [8900 battles]

that is partially it, plus, sometimes in random, your downing some beers and trying questionable strategies.. because that is what hero's do.

agree here... in regular ranked my w/r until R10 is 80%, then drops, and then drops again at R5. but I really really like Ranked in the third league.

Ranked should be more detrimental to your winrate than randoms if you are constantly pushing to rank 1.

I'm similar but not as good.  Above R10 is a breeze, 10-6 I can make steady progress.  Once I hit rank 5 I usually find that I am neither the reason why my team wins nor the reason why it loses, so I settle in around 50%.  Only season I've ranked out so far is the one where the availability of rental ships diluted the talent pool more than usual.

Ranked is a different game.... The main difference is fewer ships. With less shells being fired at you you're gonna live more often.... The fewer the ships per team the more your individual input impacts the battle. Just my 2 cents.

Better win rate in ranked, but I am a better player so I hope I am contributing more to the battle...less players the more a player sticks out either potato or unicom and everything in between.  If your a bad player, and there are lots of them in ranked, your going to drag your team down and it takes some good game play to over come that.  If your lucky and are on a team with a good 2 player Div, your win chances went way up!
