Those of us who favor the competitive modes over random garbage do so because we're able to exert more influence on the match.  Slapping "Ranked sprint" on randoms is Puerto-Rico-event level of bad idea.  I don't work at the airport and likewise don't like to carry  baggage.   The less players we have to put up with, the better.

Ranked needs to forever have a cap of 7 players -- a rule that should never be broken.  Furthermore, it should also be setup where a 7 man division comprised of any player in any clan (or not) should be able to div.  Those who choose to run any other amount of players in a div, including just 1, will be matched against / combined with any number of players to equal 2 7 ship teams independent of div balance.  

Slapping a different label on randoms however is unacceptable.

They are just testing whether this mode can be used in Randoms.

In this mode, whoever has the most broken Russian ships wins.

You know what the best part is?  All ranks are grouped together.  So you could be rank 2, going for 1, and get a group of Rank 10s.

Weeeee.

Yea so that doesn't necessarily mean anything sooner or later if your at rank 2 you will get to rank 1 . Your number 2 rank going into the game doesn't mean your the best player the higher ranked player  might have started later played less games and started at rank 12 .

The guy who is rank 2 might have played 50 games already and not be so good . Its a change , that always scares people a bit I like it I had fun last night .

I'd rather have tier 5 or 6 sprint 7v7 battles, than tier 10 sprint 12v12.  The thing that made the first seasons of Sprint fun was that they were in lower tiers.   It's really frustrating having every god damned competitive and semi-competitive event be at tier freaking 10!!!

I was with you on the 7v7 part; low ship count games are part of what’s good about ranked, however I gotta hard pass on the divs there. You are literally talking about turning ranked into CW, except clans also get to dumpster randoms. I don’t want my ranked experience dependent once again on the ability of my clan to field 7 members. I want to play ranked when I want to play ranked. 2 man divs? Sure. I’m fine with that. 3 man divs? That’s pushing it. A whole 7v7 is just clan wars with extra steps.

Totally agree. I am tired of always playing and seeing the same ships.

Sprint was fun at the lower tiers as well.  There's no reason why they couldn't have it at T5 again.

They just don't want people grinding shifts in ranked sprint. Sucks.

I cannot disagree with this your right about tier 10 . At least the up coming ranked is in tier 7 I believe .

Understand that I have made the choice to not go with a big clan and play clan battles or KoTs….. For single players who enjoy PVP there is only Random or Ranked. Ranked Sprint is a gas, its fun, quick and most importantly not randoms. (yes, I know this one seems like a random)…….

Ideal? Probably not, but if it helps fine tune future game modes...That is a win - win. They are doing some fun stuff with Ranked Sprint. Hopefully next ranked Sprint we can go down to tier 4 or something like that. Either way, mix it up as much as possible AND provide more Ranked Sprint events.

Then rejoice! The next Ranked season is supposed to be Tier VII.

It definitely was fun to be able to play my tier 5's in that first ranked sprint season.  :cap_like:

Tier 10 sprint?  No so much.

FYI, this is some feedback, Hapa.  <-----  @Hapa_Fodder

It is Sprint Ranked, a different mode. We all have different modes of battle we favor & those we do not.

Have strint at t10 is what's wrong. Steint was fun because it was low t and games were fast and cheap.

T10 is work and less fun.
