If anything, for the sake of the people who want to stream on twitch.

The problem is simple, its simply too easy to rank out in gold due to the overall level of play.

People watch me for high level content, and most prefer that I play seriously, the problem is that when I do I rank out in just a few hours lasting thru 2-3 streams at most.

Since ranked only refreshes once every 2 weeks, I am left without content for the other 10 days out of 14.

 

I have already resorted to trying to handicap myself as much as possible by playing things like Lighthouse Zao and 0 Range Colbert but it gets boring and stale.

Losing ranked on purpose for the sake of de-ranking is considered griefing so that isnt a possible solution either.

I just want to be able to show my audience and teach them how to carry with meta ships like Smaland and Des Moines without running out of content.

Ideally, as title would suggest, make higher tiers so that I can show how to beat unicums or give us an option to throw away all our stars so we can keep playing.

Agree, there should be the option to at least continue playing the same league without additional steel rewards if a player so desires. There used to be a "wolves league" or something ages ago where people who ranked out in the old system could still play ranked. Need something similar here. Also, BIG FAN!:cap_rambo:

^This. You'd have 3 people on there.

If you want more ranks like that, Ranked needs to be the go to match mode, not random. To do that, I think Random and Ranked need to become the same thing; you get queued in the same lobby, everyone is in the same match, you just choose whether for it be considered Ranked or not for yourself. The problem then however, is what to do with divs. 

Just not enough players to support the idea. I guess they should lower the game numbers in each league so the population is distributed across these +2 additional ones?

Remove the darned irrecoverable ranks  and this will simmer out a lot differently imo.

I don't know if there'd be enough people at Diamond to have a sustainable system, but I'd certainly love them to add another rung on the ladder.  Platinum queue and see how it holds up for Season 3?

The idea I have proposed numerous times is to allow players to play a lower tiered ship and start ranked all over once they rank out.. Assuming you rank out quickly you then can play 6-7 in bronze, 7-8 in Silver and 9 in Gold.

The level of play you are requesting simply won't work, there aren't enough players to field teams on at any given time.

Now, if you want viewers, rank out in a tier 8 Edinburgh against tier tens.

Platinum League with Gold as filter would be interesting. That was suggested back in test season.

IDK, but it deserves a test. Two leagues sound like overkill

I dislike myself a little bit by agreeing with you, but that's a neat idea.

That's my future next season, I might sell my replays as SM ship porn

British lady get destroyed by 4 big Russian and ask for more!

 

but it is an idea to give an higher level of challenge to the handful of super unicum while not making some “diamond rank” that ends up being the same 20 players going against each other’s.

When a Unicum isn't happy been a Unicum so they want to be a super Unicum or maybe even a uber Unicum :Smile_trollface:

I also have this problem. I resort to playing with my left feet pinky and still rank out so eaasy.

For clan wars I also recommend an even higher league, I think "Jupiter red spot storm" would be appropriate for me. Short of this I'd settle for geomagetic storm..

You will be reliant on other people in the same league being online wanting to play. 
When the pool of players gets even smaller your queue times will get longer also. 

Not opposed to the idea of it being added, but it will be interesting to see how frequently you can get matches and what points of the day when you are stuck waiting for players.

Being able to drop down to lower leagues would be nice too... I keep one account in Bronze to play T8s but had to stop playing until reset tomorrow....image.thumb.png.1302f6a7f99b4509d5e9cd92343ce8c7.png

Why not just allow players to reset their rank and earn the rewards again? 

If people are willing to put that much time in then they should be able to. 

There could be little stars next to their name for each time they reset rank as well.

This would be great, or even reset without new rewards until the next sprint. I like the 7 vs. 7 format of ranked, and would play it over Randoms if the option existed.

i kind of agree they need to find a way to keep/ minimize  the garbage from going into those leagues.  Just adding levels wont help because people can get carried into new leagues if they play alot early on.   The past ranked seasons you dindt see too many turds at rank  and lower . obviously there were some but not the level that is the current gold turd pond .  

i was hoping gold would be more like the old league of sea wolves as far as quality of play instead we get this crap .

Honestly I'd say start a new account since new ranked is far more grindy in requirements terms than old ranked and you're still blowing through it.

Clearly you are not handicapping yourself enough in your choice of ships! :Smile_veryhappy:

Get WG to release special versions of the Yudachi at Tiers 8 through 10, just for you. That should slow you down a touch... :Smile_hiding:

(Seriously, though, I envy the talent of anyone who can blow through that cesspool as quickly as you claim to be doing so.)

HAWHAWHAWHAWHAWHAW....

OMFG... HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You would only scratch everything up by exposing toxic Gold to a insufferable Plats and cannot be bothered to steal a used converter to stink up those in diamonds.

That would just be 07 vs 07 with extra steps.
