I came back to ranked after a break of a week or so. 3 games. 3 defeats. And in all 3 games we were down 1-4 after what felt like a few minutes. I don't get it. Why is it there as a game mode? It's just randoms for 7 players...Everybody just rushes out and commit suicide. I'd argue that players in randoms are generally better than in ranked. I am lost. See you in randoms.

Suicides are not the cause of lost Rank games, its

  • None production of high caliber guns ships
  • Not knowing to stay gun silent.
  • Not defending the caps from being flipped.

Part of the blame goes to the scoring system...

I see your point. All valid. But that does not explain the prompt suicide of 3-4 players in each game. It's practically over in 2-3 minutes. The rest of the game is just sinking of what's left of the suicide team. I am not kidding. I am sitting and looking at my team (or the red team) all sailing straight to one cap and then sunk one after the other until the score is 0-3 or 0-4.It makes no sense to me. Isn't this supposed to be the serious game mode?

Depending on which ship classes are they (since I dont see a pic of the team score), I have to assume the obvious... Power creep...

Power creep is only the symptom of the Snowball affect. 

As long as we consume power creep/OP/over capable WG products... Instead of inclusive play style with balanced threats... Its only going to get worse.

Take the Sinop, 15 point commander, and eat 3 of the enemy teams ships. 

Even if you die, your idiot team mates surely cannot throw the fight

I was just thinking the same thing.  It doesn't take long for a good player in a ship like Sinop to blast a cruiser into oblivion the moment it appears on screen.  Put two or three of the beasts on a side and your entire screening force is gone in the first 2 minutes.

I played about 10 ranked games this morning, got 2 star saving losses, 1 loss, and the rest were wins and got me up to rank 8. Just took me Atlanta and hid behind islands until I could blap some DD's or spam BB's. The one loss was an awful game where our DD got smashed by a torpedo in the middle cap and then I got obliterated by a battleship I didn't see as I was trying to push out to kill an enemy cruiser. Best time in ranked since I got to the last irrevocable on the first day of it.

I thought the reason why ranked is always so bad was solely because of powercreep?

Every one of these was a loss and a blowout, but if you look at the lineup you can see the teams are pretty much even.  The problem is with 7v7 it only takes 1 player to be not so good on your team to make it so you will get rolled.

Just be thankful CV's aren't in ranked battles this season.

The majority of the PICs I seen, its the same thing.

  • BBs who fail to produce or sink something, you will lose.
    • Not to mention, they  (red BBs) survived to the end of the match

The middle 2 pics, the red team has 1 kill, which IMO depending on the situation... Could've gone the other way as well.

The last pic/match... IMO, hats off to the DD driver... How did he get 3 kills AND lived for the whole match??? I would've just complimented him... I just hope cruisers dont play poorly to let a DD score 3 kills next time...

Power creep... It comes down to play BB and sink everything... If not you lose... Games in where a DD or a cruiser carries, those are usually because the cruisers fail to sink it...

Its a nice summery of your Rank experience.

Never underestimate the ability of teammates to lose a game...

I look at ranked as a format to play the T7 ships I love in a CV-free environment without being uptiered to T9 constantly. In that mindset, it is a refreshing experience. It only gets frustrating when you focus on winning or whether or not your team makes smart decisions.
