who here wants 1v1 to come back like in Christmas 2019 and have reduced rewards like coal, steel, dubs, and research points? I would like ranked to be fun instead of fling like you beat your head on the wall. Hopefully the new season will be good but wish 1v1 would come back

I missed the 1v1 so I am all for this idea. Heck, if they threw it in as a new gamemode, I would absolutely play this game so much more.

1v1 was a fun side game but i wouldnt want to play an entire ranked season in it. Plus it would become very stale at the top end as only the meta ships will be played against each other.

Out of curiosity, if it is 1 vs 1 and both ships ram, destroying both ships, it is a loss for both players?

I found 1v1 rank sprint to be a suprising enjoyment(probs because I had le terrible fully kitted out at the time). I too hope WG bring it back.

whoever has the most points wins, get a cap and a points lead then just cheese an easy win by ramming

^^^This

But...if no player has the lead then:

& in that case it is a loss for both players.

Edit: Actually in 1 vs 1 it would be a push for both players...no star lost (as you would both be top of your team) but no win either.

It was fun. Even we you were on the wrong side of the matchup it still was entertaining. Playing a DD against a BB and the BB never saw you the entire game....No matter what you wait till the Mass is below 40k before you yolo rush him in the Hipper, 6 torps only nets 40k damage, 4 times I tried....lols.

I personally didn't like the 1v1 format.  It DOES have it's good points - #1 on the list being that it generated NO "my teams are so bad" wailing on the forum.

My problem with the 1v1 format was that, for me, at least, winning was less a matter of personal skill, and much more about WHAT you were matched against.  Being a cruiser guy, I played a CL.  In my battles, I nearly always won if matched against a DD, and nearly always lost of matched against a CA or BB.  Against other CLs, I was somewhere near 50%.  I quit fairly early, because as soon as I saw what was on the other team, I could pretty well predict who would win.  Oh yes, there were exceptions, like the one (and only) time I beat a BB, but the only reason I beat that BB was that the guy driving it made every mistake you could possibly make.

So no.  1v1 was much too rock/scissors/paper for me.

1 vs 1 ranked wasnt enjoyable ..even though i ranked out it wasnt nice ..you played against the same ship 50 times in a row ..there wasnt any diversity ,,map was to small to move a bb around .i would not bother with this again...

1v1 Ranked Sprint was awesome. The only class I didnt mess with was Destroyers because I'm not good in them, really. The best part was the humble pie it served everyone when they played their OP ships and still lost. I dont think many actually ate the pie they were given, but it was offered.

1v1 was fun, but I also have a Tirpitz.  If they isolated it to same class (BB v BB, DD v DD) I think it would be interesting.  Its a waste of flags though....

Agree with this. 1 v 1 is nice for a sprint and that was a nice change of pace but a full season would get boring. Even in the sprint season it was flooded with Tirpitz. Which is fine for a few days but 4-6 weeks in a full season would get frustrating because it’s more about having the right ship than having the skill to carry

1 v 1 was amazing. I went counter-meta with Le Fantasque and a strategy that basically boiled down to 1. All ahead full, 2. Pop speed boost, 3. Torpedo Joust. I had probably a 12% better win rate than usual for me, first time I ever had a unicum rating for a PvP game mode.

This happened to me once. The ram was actually inadvertent, too, we were knife fighting, but I had taken the small cap thanks to Speed Boost.

I was just wondering if it was a draw or the player with the most points won do you remember I don't .

Maybe they could do a different tiers every 2 days like tier 3 and 4 then tier 6 and 7 and so on so same ships cant be used over and over till you rank out .

I had a blast in 1v1 until my ISP crapped out. I used Hipper and only had an issue when I ran into a Graf Z.

Sure, why not?  I didn't like it at first but then I started playing Bismarck exclusively and kicked everyone's butts including Tirpitz and ranked out quickly.

1v1 should be the default Raked Sprint mode. The last season of Sprint was essentially Ranked and it sucked.

I don't ever recall the word "fun" being associated with the experiences of Ranked.
