According to the Developer Bulletin posted today, the next patch will see the next season of ranked, as follows.

 

Quote

Ranked Battles will be fought on the following maps (Domination mode):

  • Tier VIII: Neighbors, Northern Lights, Hotspot, Sea of Fortune, and Mountain Range.
  • Tier X: Hotspot, Sea of Fortune, Warrior's Path, Mountain Range, Tears of the Desert, and Sleeping Giant.
  • Tier V in the League of Sea Wolves: Shatter, Sea of Fortune.

 

Does this mean League of Sea Wolves is going to be League of Kamikaze vs. Cesare? Are there any regular tier V's that would cut the mustard? Not sure why I'm asking, I've never played ranked and don't have any tier 10s so I'm quite unlikely to reach rank 1 but I'd like to know if I should buy back my Podvoisky on the off-chance.

No one plays the League of the Sea Wolves. The rewards are so pitiful that people who reach rank 1 just stop playing ranked.

I'm never going to be in T5 ranked because I cannot be bothered with T10 ranked, but...

 

BBs:

  • Kongo (fast, good hp, decent guns)
  • König (tanky, okish speed, decent gunnery)
  • Iron Duke (kinda tanky, cancer HE, kind of accurate)

Cruisers:

  • Kirov (high pen, good HE, fast)
  • Furutaka (best armour in tier, can overmatch other cruisers, fast, best torps)
  • Königsberg (good reload and range)
  • Emile Bertin (fast and good fire chance)
  • (basically anything that isn't Emerald)

DDs:

 

No clue, only played IJN. Minekaze > Mutsuki though.

 

CVs:

 

Just no.

Fair point, well made! :Smile_teethhappy:

 

Although that might be changing too - further quote from same source.

 

Quote

If you gain 1st Rank, you will receive a new resource for the Arsenal of the Public Test—Copper. On the Public Test server only, you will be able to exchange Copper for new permanent camouflage patterns for Tier VIII ships: Z-23—The Last Conquest and Edinburgh—Arctic.

 

Earning copper in LSW to buy premium camos on regular ships - would that change your mind?

Not really. I already have the Congratulatory camo for the Z-23 and I'm not interested in the Edinbruh.

Two camos for T8 ships is just not enough, unless they make the bonuses interesting.

Because T5 ranked is so terrible, or because you had to grind all the way through T10 ranked and are fed up with the game mode?

No, it means it will be the 10th time noone plays it

 

 

I'm just hoping they will drop the Mountain range (6th (!!!) "competitive" run in a row with it - it's literally the only map that doesn't rotate) and that R10 won't be irrevocable anymore - that was an absolute cancerous disaster last season

The only thing it says about ranks is that rank 1 will be easier to achieve, which makes sense given this is only the PTS we're talking about. I'm sure there'll be plenty of time to sharpen pitchforks and prepare the burning torches when the official announcement of the new season is posted. :Smile_hiding:
