So, here I am. Rank 3. The toughest rank for me. Where you know you've got to win at least 3x matches straight to get to rank 1.

 

I never seem to manage it in one sitting.

 

It seems pot luck as to whether you get teamed up with other players whom you can really work with; if not, you're stuck.

 

I try to pace myself. Win a couple of matches. Take a breather. Do some Ranked matches. Come back. Lose a star. Flash. Try again. Lose another star. Throw hands up in annoyance, log off. Try again the next day. Rinse, repeat.

 

Does anyone else struggle for that last big push? If so, is anyone aware of a better way to manage it? Any tips?

not played ranked recently but ranked out in many other seasoins.

Just play to your best abilities so you can reasonably save stars on a lose.

The rest is patience. If you are playing good enough you will reach rank 1 eventually.

Ranked sprint is easy mode mate, you think this is hard I'd hate to think of your struggle with proper ranked. What makes the last few ranks the hardest is the fact you see the end in sight and it might make you a little impatient...When you start worrying about finishing more it puts more pressure on you in games and may just affect your performance.

Yes that, and 5 of your teammates deliberately want to sabotage your game so they can be top xp and keep the star

I don't necessarily think its hard. I don't really struggle all that much reaching rank 3. I reached Rank 1 in the last two sprints. But, as in this one, getting past rank 3 was tough.

 

And I wonder if the 10k coal is worth it?

I made modest goals for a day. Like progressing one rank. Also, if it is really, hard then progress only one star a day. That way you don't get overly exthaused.

I was in exact same position as you... got stuck at #3 since last weekend and was unable to move forward... :Smile-angry:

 

Due to work and family obligations I was unable to play the last "Ranked Sprint" when it started so it meant that I have to play each and every game alone because nobody from my Clan was available when I played (late at night on weekdays and early in the morning on weekends)... :Smile_sad:

 

I somehow managed to reach Rank #1 this Sunday (i.e. last day) when I was finally able to play during the day (alone again) but it was struggle and like going to the dentist... it was just terribad... :Smile_facepalm:

 

The teams were bad as never before (especially the case when your team has you above 50% WinRate and just 1 other player with similar stats - the rest would be 30%-40% WinRate players without any knowledge or experience... yes... I would usually keep the star in defeat but when your team has 1-2-3 players with just 100-200 BaseXP after battle you now how bad it is)... :Smile_facepalm:

 

 

In any case this was most certainly one of the worst (if not the worst) "Ranked Sprint" player wise... dear Lord... :Smile_izmena:
