Ranked battles - 1 win followed by 3 4 (now) save-a-stars in Benham. NO - I am not playing to save my star, the teams were just that bad.

When to step away? For me it is when I feel that I am not playing as well as I should or when I start becoming frustrated.

This right here. Ive stepped away several times in the past. Currently I'm on the longest break I've taken and honestly just reading the forums, I dont think ill be coming back. My blood pressure went up several points playing this game and its seemingly more and more common moments of absolute frustration. Life is too short for that kind of nonsense.

My anger often gets the better of me, convinced that the next match will surely be better. Unfortunately, it never seems to work out that way, so more often than not I end a session frustrated and tired. Sorta like a compulsive gambler, minus the gambling.

if you're getting moody, good time to step away.

I've found it helps me stay in giggle-ish mood if greet each battle with "let's beat each other up!"

Also, it is always generally @BrushWolf's fault players get moody since he likes to howl at them a lot :cap_haloween:

I've stepped away from playing competitively.  ...   long... long time ago.
But I like looking at the ship models and beating up bots occasionally.

With just PVE, this game has everything I could ask for.  Random / ranked / clan battles are just too much drama for this old model ship collector.

But if competing brings you joy, then feel free to have fun with it.

I usually take a break after 3 or so losses.

I'm 2 losses in a row w/out a push...but being in a protected rank counts as a push if that is relevant.

So basically 2 star losses in a row.

I played one DD game in Ranked, and was reminded that CVs are bad in a 7-player game....

Current format is a train wreck

Ranked is mad fun in this format but if you aren’t having fun then like anything else, stop.

I gave Ranked a go and stopped at Gold. As a DD player it's hard to be competitive without a Smaland, and I used all of my FXP resetting the IJN gunboat line a few times. Playing against the Smaland is a nightmare: great guns, decent AA. great concealment, radar, and heal. Oof. It's like WG is forcing CB down everyone else's throats.

Did well in bronze using the LeFantasque. Then lost about five or six in a row. Just decided that last 100 steel was not worth it. Take a break. I like playing cribbage with my wife.

It's super hard to carry in a dd this season.

So far I've tried Fantastic to rank out of bronze.

But the T8 radar one got wrecked... 

Assashio got wrecked....

....

Since I'm in Silver, been playing Ohio...

I did yolo Emilio once in testing,  did well...

I'm afraid Benham may not have enough...
