I dont understand why the new ranked season has to feature such a stupid mode as the Armsrace? It adds another layer of complexity that players have to worry about in order to win!!

 

Why not keep it vanilla and use the normal game modes? 

 

When I played Armsrace mode, I didnt like it at all. I found it underwhelming to play and frankly unrealistic for a combat simulator such as WOWS it a stupid mode.....

When has WoWs become a "combat simulator"?

 

So the mode will fit right in with your posting habits?

You're going to sh*t when you realise what the repair party consumable does. :Smile_amazed:

It's not a Star Wars game, and not everyone likes these gimmick modes.

I'm really against arms race as it is an unknown game mode for the many who didnt try it.

Also, it is unknown if WG has really balanced it.

 

At this point I wouldnt be surprised if winning is entirely dependent on which buffs spawn on your own side of the map which means Ranked is so RNG i might aswell bring my stock tier 9 ships without camo or flags.

Maybe because they're actively trying to discourage you from playing ranked and want you to go get farmed by reworked CVs in randoms instead. :Smile_trollface:

Armsrace? Well if true, that is a bad news.  So finally when real ranked season should start, after these joke sprint ranks, it will be armsrace mode. Will we ever have normal ranked season again?

Concur, ranked should not be played in a gimmicky mode. But you are late!

The mode is fine. Force campers to move or they will lose hard time. Especially BBs. However there will be still those who don't know what to do nor what are they doing.

Full arcade mode, what a bad iddea. istead of doing modes like frontline or ranked battles wot style no lets add a super arcade mode that gives players stupid buffs.

I dont know how much of that season I ll be playing unless you get AR on a roll, meaning you only get to play it now and then same as epicenter for instance, if its AR all the way I ll pass most likely since I m not really a fan od said mode, depends what they give out as a prize though, also on upside - no reworked cvs so maybee i change my decision if randoms become unbearable due to air pleague

I actually enjoyed arms race and think ranked got very boring very quickly and amazingly campy with BBs trying to farm damage from the back of the map to save the star, so I’ve never bothered too much with ranked as I hated it and how toxic it got, I’m hoping arms race will add a new element to it and it will be more fun to play,  however guess we will have to wait and see

I regard arms race game mode for ranked as a very bad idea. And yes I concur with the OP I would welcome more front lines like game mode than stupid arcade ones. While  WOWS is not a combat simulator it does strike a very nice balance between action and tactics and the more historical flavor it retains the better. Arcade is a very bad direction.

First ranked season since I started playing that I will - deliberately- miss. The game is arcady enough already, I want to retain as much semblance of "believeable" gameplay as possible, so nope to Arms Race.

The one thing that makes me hate arms race is that it takes the usual snowball problem you have in randoms and amplifies it times 10. If they want to make a new game mode that is even more arcady, maybe they should use that freedom to include a rubberband effect, not the opposite...

As a non-WoT player, what's frontline and how does ranked work in that game?

If you didn't like arms race then this clearly isn't for you. I think it's a good idea and ads some more variety, guess they should have just called it something else then ranked so people wouldn't be as upset.
