Saw this on NA forum not sure if it's true : next ranked sprint is 1 v 1?

edit: and it was announced already a month ago in the devblog

1 vs 1?

 

Am I reading this right?

 

And you can pick all classes? Dear god with a stick. I pray it is mirrored MM.

 

CV or DD all the way until rank 1 if not.

It's going to be one hell of a trainwreck to see that "experiment" unfold... Funny to watch though, from the sideline. 

 

What ships are going to be strong? I can see the Enterprise being the "I win"-button, but I don't discard the Tirpitz/Bismarck (especially if the planned buffs go through) or a secondary-specced Graf Zeppelin or Massachusetts.

I don't think it is mirrored

It all depends if it Mirrored MM or not.

 

@MrConway any more info?

 

It's certainly different and I have to give you that, i'm gonna reserve judgement at the moment but it sounds increasingly boring.  Unicums/good players will easily get to ranked 1 with the ships.  However, if it is mirrored my gut instinct is there are some REAL STAND OUT SHIPS that will completely own their enemy. Don't make the gap between those that do and those don't even bigger than it already is!! Enterprise and KIDD?

 

It if isn't mirrored then dear god are their some classes that will simply own the enemy (*cough* CV *cough* DD). 

 

Saying all this, it's ranked SPRINT so it's always a bit of fun anyway i suppose.

RPF for the win then....I knew it would be a game changer. I use it on every single one of my ships. Add radar and hydro and a dd stands little chance. Play a CV or aforementioned specc'ed cruiser and dominate I reckon. What on earth are WG thinking?

They don't and that is the problem. Not from a game play point of view anyway.

 

It's all £££££££££££££££££££££££.

This is a good point, so basically you will need to retrain your commander if you want to be most succesful in this format. Not like its worth it :cap_cool:

 

I would have loved to see mirrored 1v1 though, that would be a lot more interesting TBH.

The current plan for this 1v1 sprint is to NOT have mirrored matchmaking. Its an experiment that we think will be fun :)

I might have a go at this, as if I 'potato' then its only an easy win for someone rather than wrecking other people's stars.....

I have a few sneaky T8's one is even good at melting planes:cap_rambo:

Well its Enterprise 110% and i hope people play alot of BBs and Cruisers to counter DDs :Smile_popcorn:

Ehh we ll see about that, if the maps will be (which is kind of a must since 1v1) very small that might actually be a much less then a safe bet as killing a DD or some BBs before they can rush you down is far from certain...

Well you cant survive if you dont have smoke vs CV and i dont think DDs smoke is gonna last all the way to CV. Enterprise is just gonna kill everyone, but we will see. Reality might be different

Thank you for your response. 

 

I will hold judgement for now as fun, as you know it's completely subjective.
