I don’t know who would voluntarily bring the low or midtiered ships to such a mode.

And I wouldn’t want some one who has achieved only T6 to enter into a T8 match in any competitive battle I am in.

Period

I'll bring my Georgia for sure and take on all tiers just like I do now in Randoms

I don’t remember which season it was but I’m pretty sure one of the early seasons  was a two tier range. May have worked back then but now the low tier guys are gonna be severely hamstringed. I can think of very few cases I would purposely bring a tier 9 to a tier 10 fight(Black anyone?) but in a competitive game mode that’s already tuff as nails like ranked not a chance.

You be sure and do that.

9,9,8,8

That's the barrel count of other ships with 18" and 18.1" guns that'll be waiting for you and your six.

The first couple of seasons of ranked had 2 tiers (T5 & T6?) up to a certain rank, I believe.  Then you needed a higher tier, T8? to continue.  It could be slightly different.  It was a while ago.

Is there a point to thos thread? Is this an uptier whine thread?? 

No it's not. I would like a 3 tier ranked random 8-10 just like randoms MM now only we get a shot at earning lots of coal and steal ect.  Be a nice change from just 1 tier ranked.

Rather than have different tiers in the same match, I'd like to see different tiers of ships used in different brackets of Ranked play.  For example:

  • R25 - R20: T6 ships only
  • R19 - R15: T7 ships only
  • R14 - R10: T8 ships only
  • R9 - R5: R9 ships only
  • R4 - R1: T10 ships only

It would keep things fresh along the way and potentially help reduce burnout from spamming the same ship(s) in battle over and over.  Likewise, you'd get to face a different variety of opponents along the way, rather than the same "competitive meta" ships.

I remember that one. Lower ranks were T5-6, and higher was T7-8.

T5-6 was ok, I actually did far better in Nicholas than Farragut, or any other T6 ship I had.

As soon as I got to T7-8 though, yeah, the extra upgrade slot made a difference, not to mention the first major usage of "smoke forts"

Let's change the OP's wording a bit and request Ranked be Tier 3 next season.
