So what you're saying is that it's really just a fancy name for an 8 man a side random match then... lol

you know that there's a way not to lose star even if your team lose. as long as you are top of exp earner of the team you will not lose star. 

 

btw i though when you reach certain rank its not irrevocable even if you lose star?

For me the best Ranked season was Season 2 which is the only season where i reached Rank 1..

All the great players are competing on that season, with actual teamwork and cooperative play..

After that Ranked players are mostly filled by derps, and its not enjoyable anymore.. I've stopped playing Ranked ever since as it isn't worth my time..

I got my Jolly Roger already and that's enough for me..

This is why I only stop at Rank 18, I just want the flags/reward as much as I can but without ruining the fun for others because I always at the bottom for base exp, if not I am second bottom. I am not much of a help.

Well, Ranked season 2 was quite soon after the public launching of this game, thus;

- Player base was small, and players were less experienced in general I would say [considering people had played the game far less as opposed to now].

 

However this season, while I can understand the frustration of people due to massive number of clueless players doing random things, it does get better from tier 10 onward I would say. Just initially you would need to surge past a large quantity of "derp" players :P, soon after that quality still takes over. Also the new addition of not losing a star is a welcome addition to make sure significantly skilled players dont have to go back and forth too much due to team's inept playing. So yeah, all in all it has become far more competitive. 

 

p.s I am finding it harder this season to get the rank 1 position in team even when its something I am putting some effort into, as opposed to previous seasons, where topping the team was far more frequent if I remember correctly.

Well if you're saying Nurnberg, then I can somewhat understand the planning/gamble he/they took in that scenario, given nurn's amazing torps, good handling and german hydroacoustic advantage, it does appear to be a viable option. If it somehow went right, could have basically decided the game in first 3 mins... taking out 3 of them in a brave and sacrificial manner [considering 1 nurn dying]. :P. But yeah I do understand what you mean, I had to play like 10+ battles to go from 15-14, and then went straight to 11, and then needed a further 10 or so battles to go to 10.

I was so close to rank 10 last night. It was my final game for that last star.

 

We were winning, 1 saipan, 1 nagato vs another nagato. We got 1 out of the 3 caps on shatter (middle cap) with a lead in points.

 

I ask the saipan to go cap A, which is away from the nagato. He decides to try and kill the 50k hp nagato using 2 bombers (like 2 / 6 bombers left). Game didn't end well we lost by 60 points as the time ran down. I asked him when there were 5 minutes left, there was plenty of time to get A.

 

Well there goes that star. Another grind again back to 10.

 

You have people playing and then you have literally dumb people that don't understand the mechanics of caps and points. You win by points not by kills. So any technical win on points is still a win. I get frustrated when I see CVs in ranked, I have not seen any spectacular plays from CVs in all of my games played so far.

 

At other times, I ask the team members to push, because there is just no time left. If your behind you have to do it. Nope still stay back. I hope I can pull away from the derp pack soon.

Nurnberg is easy food for cleveland and BBs :teethhappy:

 

I'm tired getting 18-17-16-17-18 over and over again @_@

No can do w/ my cleve without proper support (R16~R20 players are like doing what they only want to do <_<). Rarely see CV, my 75 AA is kinda useless. Unless when I can surpass R15, probably I could do something different than in R18 coz I have my gud 'lil Mahan c:

i have seen similar games. We had 2 caps on shatter and where in the 900s.1 mutuski on our side vs 2 nagatos. The dd could have helped multiple times but didn't. Heck at the end the closest nag to him had only 4k hp left. Nope he sails to the pristine one launches torps and sails under detection range. The nagato kills him. We were at 954 with two caps....

 

How do people play this mode or game even to t6 or t7 and not be able to play.

Cracked Rank 15 last night on the back of some good teams and solid Farragutting by me. 

 

Not sure if I'll keep going with Ranked though. It is just normal gameplay in most respects. Saw a Rank 12 last night, running his Fuso 2 battles in a row. He was unapologetic.

Believe me FG when you get to rank 9 there will still be people running their T6 ships, mostly Mutsuki's who the moment they get isolated by the horde of gunboat DD's going around die pretty much instantly.

dude Fuso does just fine if the player knows what they are doing. Angle your armour right and go to the right part of the map you will be able to support your team. Shoot HE at targets you cannot penetrate and you instantly turn into a massive Zao

I feel you man, was 1 star away from rank 12, which is a safe rank but my losing streak started there, ended up back at rank 13 1 star today :( I really want to just ignore ranked, but seeing the rewards and time left... ugh:red_button:

This link explains amount of time it takes to rank up, way to much pressure for very little gain really.

wow, that's an insane amount of time. If a player of that caliber needs that much time, how much would the average player need.

This season will be brutal the amount of games needed.


Probably wouldn't surprise me if those trying don't get enough games can't get them started at rank 5+. Might as well throw in the towel earlier.

 

Its only gold + a USS Flint (which is pretty much an Atlanta).
