    Broken ranked, some questions to WG...

    It's nice to see you actively engage in debates like this, it's important to have these uncomfortbale discussions and noone should take feedback personally - expression is important. That said, CV's impact the game and the way people play it far more than the other classes, I think you pretty much know this by now. They render dd gameplay in competitive modes like ranked grossly uncomfortable, another point you (should) already know by now. And yes, their presence in a competitive mode has removed the choice for me to play my favourite class, the dd, so I do speak personally. CV's in ranked don't just impact dd gameplay in a small way, they almost nullify it. We've had WG keep a close eye on things for ages, ...how much longer do you need given this type of monitoring has been going on for longer than I can remember? Are WG actively trying to remove all tactical and strategic value from the game? I like CV's but I still don't think you folks spend much time considering the impacts and feedback relating to their presence in certain modes - and it's disappointing to see the supposed 'minority' waved off as an automatic response to dismiss valid claims being taken seriously, though I do applaud you sticking to the chosen company line. #minorityrulz

    Broken ranked, some questions to WG...

    Mmmmmm, might need to listen to flamu a little more then. Boycott as a mechanism will definitely work, but rallying support is never going to happen on the scale necessary. Unless via clan action with clan leaders pursuading those they are able to influence or convince within their clan - Perhaps clan loyalty will entice clan members to support their clan if a decision is made to this end? Multiple clans boycotting events and decisions somehow would work beautifully, lol. Clans provide identity and a platform for competition, but could be used to far greater effect if harnessed to their full potential...but do as many people take the game as seriously or want to see it improved or based around fair and balanced principles like we do? Not likely i reckon.

    Broken ranked, some questions to WG...

    When you do get the opportunity to ask, for example in a stream, I notice a lot of the hard hitting questions are ignored and the more benign ones embraced. We simply have no political power here to persuade them otherwise. Our only real fightback can come through the community contributers and their streams - but the question remains is whether the CCs have it in them to say something without being afraid to upset WG.

    Super Container Loot Thread [ topics merged ]

    Dear WG, could I have a supercontainer please? I haven't had one for yonks and have forgotten what it feels like in that moment before I open it to reveal another set of signals. Best regards whiner

    Weekly Combat Missions: British Cruisers

    I'm pretty sure we can classify this as late february, so where is the Cheshire my lovelies? And I the only ones that finds the rewards for these tokens in the armory extremely unimgainative and boring? Apart form the captain, the rest are uninspiring.

    daily news from RANKED

    Observations from a couple of games in ranked last night: How surprising to see players bunch up in ranked and move off to one point on the map around one buff point and all stay and die there one by one while the enemy commands 95% of the map How surprising that despite being asked to look at how far they are from anywhere of value in the game they ignore you, despite kind requests. How surprising that the cv player steers his cv directly toward the enemy fleet early in the game despite being told he was doing so and you get to watch him die for no reason, and then he says 'damn'. How surprising for players in a team to completely ignore three ships with around 5k hp left to fire at a bb further away with almost full hp. I got tired very quickly of all these surprise actions by people last night in the few games I played. Just too much excitement to bear. I am by no means perfect, but there is a certain something special in watching the thought processes in people (or total lack thereof) playing out in a game right before your eyes.

    Rename ranked in Smolensked

    And then they found Elvis alive and well, and world hunger ended and all politicians and game developers put the best interests of their players first.

    Planes in Ranked are invincible

    Meanwhile at WG: This problem does highlight the very serious issue that it seems there is not much forward thinking happening, or anticipation of the respective impacts of decisions like this...do they play their own game as much? Maybe its time to scrap their own definition of player feedback and finally accept what most of the gamer world knows it to be.

    I know, I was throwing in a potential counter argument against some yokel that'll eventually state what you said seriously - now I just need a backward thinking yokel to ask away and we're all good

    Planes in Ranked are invincible

    And so this becomes the sole guide of what ship to take, the fact there will be a cv to contend with. Gone are the days of choosing a good alrounder to do battle with, lol. Everybody needs to tune into the stream tomorrow to share their joy with the community team, all feedback is good feedback.....weyhey

    Rename ranked in Smolensked

    Going to take my smolensk and cv into ranked this evening, just to test out the theories and to explore why its all so contentious...cannot moan about something if I have no related experience now can i? I just need someone to moan about a particular BB and DD being overpowered and I then have my 'fantastic four' ships to use in ranked...woohoo. Halfway there.

    Please never do Arms Race again.

    I think WG are the ultimate trolls this ranked season. Can't wait to see the kickback against them when they stream on Thursday, lol. edited: edited some stuff out

    ☆ Solution to the CV problem! ★

    The mad thing is I enjoy playing a cv, I really do, but that doesn;t stop me getting mad when I have little to no defence against one in my dd or from feeling really sorry for a dd player when I consistently target him and there's little he can do other than play alongside bigger ships, which defeats the whole purpose of dd gameplay.
