Ranked Sprint

We are currently testing a new battle format - "1 vs 1" on tier VIII ships. Full details of the Ranked Sprint will be announced later on the official portal.

 

Does that mean that wg are testing 1v1 to implement 3v3 as it was in the clan brawl, or is it actually gonna be 1v1? how would that even be balanced? I assume you will face the class you pick, but even then, some ships will be brokenly strong at 1v1, some laughably weak, i really wonder how this will be balanced.

Comrade, politburo suggests you to stop thinking about such irrelevant things.

I mean, if that happens as planned, you'd have to be quite the dolt to take it seriously at all... so why worry about balance? just play it for fun if its fun, or ignore it if it isnt (which would also show WG all they need to know^^)

Yeah, i just did some detective work aswell, classes wont be restricted, and cvs will be allowed in.

 

Basically, it will be rock-paper-scissors-disease with extra steps

It reminded me of this:

Which also had very common non-symmetrical matchmaking.

 

Probably where they got the idea from...

So it will be either kiting Bismarck/Massachausets or rushing Tirpitz/Kii. Everything else is irrelevant.

1) What are you going to do as a DD against a cv?

2) What are you going to do as a BB against a cv?

3) What are you going to do as a CA against a cv? 

 

-> Long before you spot them will they spot you. 

-> If the cv is slightly competent he will just kill you before you even had a shot at him. 

 

Maybe this lidl season is just for shits and giggles but still...

Also, since its 1v1, what would even pretend to counter carriers?

 

What is to stop the carrier from simply finding a large enough island and play ring-around-the-roses with the enemy bb/ca? carriers are certainly fast enough... only thing that could catch them would be a dd or maybe a french cruiser, but a carrier should kill those off very quickly...

Guess a good AA cruiser would go for the objectives and focus on not dying, while winnig with points

While getting reset every 30s? My CV and it's AP DB would object to both parts of that plan.

Kind of agree but with randoms the CV can normally work out the DDs position from either spawn, cap or the direction the CL, CA or BBs go in (leming train)

 

With this 1v1 the CV will have a harder time finding the DD but via RPF the DD will know where the CV is, then it's a matter of who finds the other first.

Hmm, do you have the information about the objectives? It's a 1vs1 not the normal 12vs12 or other modes. Maybe capping takes 20s

Spotting in 1vs1 is easier than in 12vs12, because the CV will notice, when the planes are spotted

Good point, but both would have to be in the same vacinty, but if DD goes left CV goes right could give the DD a chance, don't get me wrong once spotted the DD is dead unless in a position to strike the carrier.

Either ships will spawn in detection range of each other, in which case CVs will not be viable

 

Or not, in which case, only CVs will be viable.

Because, you know, slingshot doesn't exist or sth even if such cruisers existed.

Oh wait.

Should be quite obvious where the enemy spawn is. And when planes are spotted, you basicly know where he has to be. Finding DDs is hilariously easy imo.
