Been playing and having many wins but tonight 3 games, 3 defeats, no stars lost. I've seen all the crap imaginable from AFK, slow loaders, people going off on their own, people yoloing, people playing any piece of trash ship they have, no one talking or answering when you try to coordinate etc. Is it worth the annoyance?

I'm only at R15 atm, I got down to R7 one season before deciding the whine wasn't worth it, does it get better or worse? Is it worth bothering with as it seems to be just a huge grind fest.

Get used to it; you will just have to bite the bullet, dig in, and tryhard.

Based on last season, there is way less afk and slow loaders. People also do try or respond to your simple messages (incl. the normally square-speakers) but don't expect complicated strategy to be understood. Generally one trash ship will appear per match but the rest should be optimal ones (so RIP the side with that trash ship). Yolo still happens, maybe once per 2-3 matches.

what do you expect from asians. who only 0.000000001 of them can communicate in english and most of them play it on their laptop and netcafe.

Currently at Rank 12 and recent games have seen me stuck, win-lose-win-lose.... you get what I mean. In games lost, it was primarily due to players bringing in "trash" ships, which get dispatched easily. So in a way, you could predict the outcome even before the battle starts.

 

Another point I have noted for battles lost, too many low ranked players in the team.

 

That said, I strongly believe it would get better at higher ranks.

No it doesn't get any better

I was in a battle with a rank 6 guy, my best rank has been 11 so far but just like everyone else  I have been going up and down the ranks like a yolo.

But back to the rank 6 guy he was in a myoko shooting HE at a Atlanta that was showing his side to him, that's right firing HE at a cruiser that was showing its side to him ummm yeah.

 I had to tell him to fire AP at him before he changed and KILLLED THE ATLANATA.

just goes to show that ranks has nothing to do with skill at all, if a guy who has no idea that firing AP at a cruiser showing  its side will kill it quicker can get to rank 6 then MM and RNG has a massive part in players getting up the ranks who have no idea how to play the game.

 

Ranks should not be affected by RNG like it is. IT should be about the best players getting to the top but no, WG rather have all level of skilled players being able to get to rank 1 even if they have no idea how to play the game just so they can keep players coming back to the game.

I starting to feel like ranked is a dynamic organism. I think the meta changes no only by level but by day and hour. Finding how your play style fits into that dynamic meta is probably an important part of the whole season.

 

I noticed last season that I had to change ship about 4 times (not counting ships I tried unsuccessfully for in 1 or 2 games) through last season to stay competitive (which at my skill level means to get to rank 5). This season I am now on my second ship. Once again I had flaunted with a couple of others for a few games, but they didn't work for me.

 

So if you are not progressing I suggest trying some different ships. What works for you in ranked may surprise you. I realize this doesn't account for the potatoes you will encounter, but yes I do think there will be less of them as you progress.

that's a surprise, i thought you've already at least in T10 already

not far from that though

 

it's so sad that communication is a massive barrier while it's suppose to be the most crucial thing in ranked

 

and keskparane, i don't think it's about what ships, it's about the players during the time you play

and the will always be potatoes

even potatoes can advance to rank 1 if they have the will and time to do it, you can always die early in the game and let your teammates win for you

.....i don't think it's about what ships,....

Riiiiiiiight. So despite the fact that I am crap IJN CV player, and could easily survive the whole battle, ship has nothing to do with it?

 

I am sure that pretty much everyone has a ship type they will routinely deal more hurt in. And I am saying that what ship that is may change during the season due to the payers they will encounter.

Ill tell you how it is like at ranked 10

If your dd smokes up the wrong bb on your team, you lose.

If your team scharnhorst plays it right, you will win.

 

The rest is just positioning to bait out any radar cruisers and the enemy torpedo bb.

Before Rank10 everything is a mess... you rather prioritize yourself to get MVP so you dont get dragged by those irrevocable rank scrubs

 

But sadly despite the potato IJN CV that showed up on my team last 2 battles, who cant even load into match until minutes after it started, damn Sims beat me to top spot by a couple of points both times :( Much salt.

 

I admit that sometimes I am that potato. But seriously... bring a CV when can't play it? Just proves my point in last post.

Haha I thought I was the only one to do this. I always exit queue if there is 2 CV or 1 CV + 10-12 other classes waiting and retry after 5-10 mins. Never liked being in a match with CV cuz they bring too much variance.

No use. Karma hates me today.

2 server disconnects

1 isp disconnect

Tried to esc out of that second cv battle, but game went straight into match before I could.

Multiple times have had 1-2 belfast on enemy team but none on ours.

 

On a plus note I haven't had any lag.
