The biggest frustration with rank is win lose win lose,  then you just quit.

This time you get steel for wins.

Good work!

Hmm, no cv so you actually have to try in order to damage ships?

Nope , plenty of coward barges in this ranked season , if it was just tier nine the easy save-a-star crap wouldn't be happening .

So far I played a few games in Ranked... Just to see if anything changed... IMO

Not really...


Its the mode for the Masochist among us... The ones who like slow agony of the grind... The ones who after its over, thirst for more of the same treatment... 

All the recent changes were more on the functionality and the look of the progression (as if to put a "new presentation" to the same ol in game experience).

I've said it once and i'll said it again... It takes a unique individual to "Rank out." The statement still hold true even today...

Yep, plenty of DDs hiding in stealth or smoke spamming HE and vomitting torpedoes out.

Why are people saying no CV? My second match had a CV in it. T8 ships are in Bronze, which include CVs. Silver is T9 and T10, so yeah, CVs there too. Gold is T10... CVs there in all 3 leagues.

I'm rather enjoying the progress rewards being tied to number of wins as opposed to ranks. (Other than the rewards for ranking out, obviously).

That's what I meant when I said there were plenty of coward barges . They are nearly always able to save their star .

I would argue that Randoms is for Masochists.    Ranked  without a CV present gives you a chance to carry.  Deadeye and HE spam are not nearly is lethal.   You can actually use other builds that would otherwise never work in randoms.

This made me laugh, not in the insulting way... It was more reflective on perspective... You're maybe right... Its all how one perceives the in-game play as Masochists.

In that regard.. I have nothing to counter or to make you think as well..

Check mate...


 

Only to point out... Rank is goal oriented (ranking out) while random has less emphasis  on goals other then CM.

Some people react to serious in a Rank match... Its down right hilarious at times.

Only for this point, I think Rank takes it... But I can see how clicking BATTLE for 19,200 times, can entitle them to the Masochists ranks...

Have you even played rank yet? If you had you would realize how wrong you are.  Actually I did quite well in Lex and Graff.

More importantly WG did something good.  Why cant you just be happy for that?

Why does everything in this forum have to come down to, you suck because I am perfect, WG sucks all the time.

WG did a good thing.  If ots so hard for you to say thanks then you need help.

Don't bother replying because it will be nonsensical.

I agree it can get toxic when the try hards rage.   I don't go into ranked with that mindset.  I simply enjoy 7 VS 7 Format .

That’s funny. I guess i only saw one in my 3-5 ish games yesterday and must have blocked it out. and so in my mind it was only tier 9 ranked since that’s what i’m grinding

Actually not sure what you mean since steel has been a reward for ranked for several seasons now...

and i have played this season, my principal complaint is tat rewards have been greatly nerfed vis a vis the previous history of ranked modes over the last 5 years!

He means the steel is awarded for cumulative wins, not for achieving certain ranks. So you can yo-yo forever and never go above Rank 9, but still get most of the steel reward.

No, no, going into Randoms trying to make secondaries work is for Masochists! I-I guess I qualify then....ahahaha!!

I've been seeing a lot more AFK players this sprint. Not sure if this is because of a technical issues relating to the recent update, because storms affecting the US, as a strategy for ranked, or just bad luck.

I have never played rank much.  Its maddening to go up and down.

At least now there are rewards for win that dont go away on a loss.

Some steal is better than none.  I need just 20k lol

How do you get your yugumo torps to go 15 km? Asking for a friend.

You realize they nerfed CVs XP earning potential to the point where it is practically impossible for a CV to" save a star" right?  Unless the rest of your team is so terrible that they hide their stats that is.

Or didn't Flamu/Flambass mention that?
