Why I don't play past rank 15. 4 stars per rank is a lot, and i'm happy with my little commemorative flag and all the signals I got. Not to mention the people only get saltier the lower you go in the ranks.

yep past rank 10 people just stop being kind to each other and it feels like team work goes out the window

I can understand people getting very edgy as they go up in rank, but you'd think that team work would generally improve.

 

Oh well.

I guess that the problem is that the devs probably feel that for the reward at the end to be worth it, the players have to put in a LOT of effort to earn it.  But to me, it's not worth it.  It's too boring to play the same small set of ships for many dozens of battles.  It might be nice if there were fewer overall stars required to advance all the way to rank one, even if the reward at the end wasn't as good.  It might make it less of a grind and more fun.

Sometimes its hard to carry those who don't want to be carried. Other times you find a player you know, or one that works well with you and you destroy everything in queue. Luck of the draw, sometimes the most you can hope for is to not lose a star.

Lol, it does. Performance requirement is higher, and then you get the occaisional tomato that doesn't understand how to actually play in a team, dies and then comes here claiming there is no teamwork.

 

also, you should expect games to end up 7 dead to 2 dead even with equal skilled teams, unless the leading team makes a big mistake in return.

Made it into Rank 8, went on losing streak of 4 in a row before a win streak of 3....sometimes I think that there is a secondary deciding code when breaking up the teams in ranked that looks at recent winning % and tries to place winners (by way of win rate) from say a sample of last 3-5 games on a side and losers likewise....adding a hidden tag to user ID that after 3-5 games to invert this procedure.  Rinse and repeat.  Of course ones own skill, or lack thereof can overcome simple %'s but sometimes when you are on a streak like this you really can't help but to want to put the tin foil conspiracy theory hat on.  LOL.

Only have the Pensacola and NM to use for ranked. Don't really want to waste the credits to buy another tier 7 ship just for ranked. Even though I made it to 10 in 42 battles using those ships, I know the NM is not useful past rank 10 and I don't have the urge to suffer in the Pensacola trying to grind through the higher ranks with it.
