Hi Captains, l'm currently in the bronze rank 1 stage qualifying for Sliver for several days now. There would be times when things go well and others that doesn't go well such as this. I'm more of a cruiser/battleship player and leaning towards IJN ships (my first tech tree line when l started playing this game in 2018). For Silver T8/9 ships, my favourite is Izumo - its heavy, has good armor protection, able to pack quite a punch with its AP rounds in a well place shot, good secondaries and overall performance (tho some might disagree). l am quite experienced with Izumo with a level 17 captain in command. Just to show you how well Izumo can perform in a normal random battle in the hands of an experienced player, a snapshot is provided below. Lately in qualifying, l have been constantly losing and wining stars, which makes it hard to complete qualification. After reading numerous forums, chats, advice and even Flamu's ships recommendations on Youtube, l starting to notice a pattern as to why l lose a ranked match + my hard earned star. This the problem - overpowered teams in matchup progress. My team - Izumo (me), Lion, Jean Bart, FDG + cruisers and dds DONT stand a chance against the other team - Jean Bart, 2 x Musashis, Sov. Soyuz + cruisers and dds. -> You can imagine how that is going to turn out already :< Breakdown: - Jean Bart - good BB with good armor, bow tanking, etc. - Musashi - T9 of Yamato, big guns, lots of hp - able to deliver huge amounts of damage per shot. - Sov. Soyuz - good armor on all sides, hard to cause significant damage to superstructure and sides with BB AP rounds. Despite a tough fight put up by my team, we lost. I straight away knew it was going to be a defeat while in matchup before the game started. l'm someone who believes in fair play and an equal playing field - but in this case it is not right. It might as well be as one sided team win. Now l don't blame the player who chooses to take their best ship into battle but unbalanced team matchups is what causes loses and falling down in ranks. You might say...why not take georgia, musashi or some other premium well performing ship? Well l don't have only of those, that was because l didn't have enough resources to acquire them before they were removed from the game. The only T8/9 premium ships l have is Lenin and Agir along with a handful of cruisers and BBs from the usual tech trees of Japan and US. The only trustworthy ship l have is Izumo, the other is Iowa (just bought recently and still training the captain and skills, not suitable for ranked yet). If anyone is going through the same frustration with T8/9 ranked matchups, comment and share your experiences below.
