PSA

If you are playing ranked and on my team, please don't yolo...

Take up some good positions around the cap, stay alive and let me do my work...

Please... ...

I'm on R3 and should be R1 by now with the way I've been playing but everyone seems intent on just yolo'ing into cap and throwing at every opportunity...

[Game attached] I left the Georgia on about 5k HP... I only lost because he got a lucky shot on one of my turrets (he was behind me and managed to score a hit while I was turning away)...

Apparently I can almost 1v3... ...

In all seriousness though I actually enjoy 3v3 ranked, I just don't like how most people are playing it... Man this game was just so close - heart rate was well up!!! lol.

I know some folks are just running in and that's fun for them but surely winning is fun too?

*shrugs*

Some tips for those who care...

  1. Don't just blob into the middle, get into a nice spread to provide crossfire.
  2. Don't rush into cap unless you need to to win... 99% of games won't come down to points but kills/deaths...
  3. If the enemy is yolo'ing, assume they're going to ram. (And thus start reversing quickly, if someone is going for a ram, it's likely that's a good thing for them and bad thing for you).
  4. Use F3 (focus fire) A LOT, and actually target that ship... The number of games that come down to a 2K HP Pommern that somehow manages to heal up it 15k...
  5. If you are playing JB, run Main Batt 1 and Prevent Maint; your turrets are the target for anyone who knows that ship and they break easily.

All ive seen is once the team kills an enemy they just go for the ram to make it a 2-3 win........

Solid tAkTiKs.

Or ignore all the above and choose  Kitakaze. Easiest. Time. Ever.

I'm also still stuck at R3. I've had perfect runs until I reached that rank.

This kind of situation is very common at R3. Lord knows how many times the B turret gets destroyed....

Musashi is absolutely good for ramming. None of the other T9 BBs have enough HP pool to survive the "Banzai charge". And of course she is the only T9 BB that can overmatch BBs bow.:Smile_trollface:

And.... Imagine being a DD without torps. Seriously this game mode is not passive enough to make BBs camp as usual.

Why play Ranked - stress levels not required, then you don't have to worry about Ranking out...........ePreen cancelled.

Because... I have some effort and I like small teams and competitive modes?

Sprints are my jam, I always try and rank out, the sooner the better.

I think this is my record, roughly 24 hours.

Previous woulda been GC at T5 in around 15 battles and 2 days, lol.

Normal ranked I get fed up and stop bothering after around getting to rank 8-10 because the system is flawed.

Yup Sprint is mostly ok because there are so many irrevocable ranks, but shorter progression.

I've just made it to pass R3 to R1 by using Kitakaze.

The main problem that DDs have is hydro rather than radar. Because most cruisers have hydro, while there are few who have radar.

Pommern is a pain in the aft to deal with.

3v3 game mode has a lot of similarities with the 1v1 sprint from a while back. Small maps, knife fights, short battles, same cap-in-cap arrangement.

It's a lot of fun, but some ships work far better than others for this mode.

Shortlist summary of what to bring:

Pommern or Georgia. (Jean Bart or Musashi)

Alaska. (or just bring a second BB)

Kitakaze. (Jutland)

Sadly it's not much of a place for cruiser mains, or tech tree BBs.

Ranked is no different from Randoms. It is just a Random match with different rules. The people playing it are the same, so expecting people to play differently is kinda pointless. You have noobs in Random, you will have noobs in Ranked.

I don't entirely agree with that.

In my experience teamplay is far better in ranked, however sprints do tend to be a yolo fest.

Either way I'm not expecting them to play a certain just frustrates me when they throw games so hard.

But yeah, also doesn't help there's no MM bracketing anymore.
