RANKED SPRINT

Starts: Fri. 27 Dec. 10:00 CET (UTC+1) / your local time: Fri. 27 Dec. 10:00

Ends: Fri. 03 Jan. 09:30 CET (UTC+1) / your local time: Fri. 03 Jan. 09:30

 

In Update 0.8.11, the 10th Season of Ranked Sprints will be held in a 1 vs.1 format with Tier VIII ships in Domination mode. Battles will be fought within a reduced combat area on maps you already know well. The limited space will make battles more dynamic, despite the minimal number of participants. The usual ship class matchmaking restrictions are disabled for this Sprint. For example, when playing a battleship, you might find yourself opposing a cruiser.

Let me be very blunt on this: I will not in any way participate in 1 vs 1 battles.

Tried it once late at night and it's not any good.

It would be somehow relevant if the opposing ship classes were the same! As it is now it is nothing more than rock-paper-scissors game with little to no skill involved!

The BBs will shred cruisers, cruisers will hunt and destroy DDs and DDs will sink BBs - did you really expect something different to come out of this :Smile_facepalm:?!

And CVs will crush all of them.

The new Rank battles are a JOKE aren't they?

As many times i chose a Cruiser i have to fight against a AIRCRAFT CARRIER ...Waves of endless planes one after the other and the ship is sink before it reaches the half way of the map and take a single shot! Can you introduse us the developer of this STUPID IDEA to laugh on him and cry on us because we still play your games?

Wargaming being Wargaming,  they wanted to avoid  "'skill" coming into the equation at all cost - as always- .

Therefore they made it another lottery. Like there is not enough gambling in this game.... (boxes).

 

Lets gamble rock, paper, scissors; CV against DD, battleship against cruiser, ... ; everything goes, as long as it is not an equal fight ! Yay!

Absolute joke.

Just reached rank 1 with Enterprise (just 4 losess - 3 vs CVs and  1 vs a guy who knew what he was doing).  The idea to allow CVs in 1v1 was even more stupid then the Holly PR grind.  Ships like Big E / Kaga / Lexi/ Saipan are just a big F you to all oposition in this situation.

I love this ranked season. Bismarck and Graf Zeppelin rules.

I killed around 15 Graf Zeppelins with Enterprise - that thing is uselles (cant fight CVs and DDs). Everybody just goes for secondaries rush and you torp him to death 1/2 the way.

I must go to the opposite side of the audience, but I like this 1vs1 mode. It is all about the skill and player experience duels w/o braindead teammates who ruin other player's games.

This is one of the most stupid game modes I have ever seen. Within classes it is all about who can wreck peers in 1v1 the best, while being specialised for anything else is a downside. Lulzily enough, you basically are best-served with Enterprise, Lexington or GZ and anytime you don't get mirror matched in a CV, you get a free star, because I would have to actually try throw the game.

 

I by now have started to just perfect the art of farming targets enough that they will be easy pickings for secondaries, so they can just catch a glimpse of my ship after all the harassment, before my secs go NOPE.

But sure, CVs are fair and balanced...

It's about skill allowing CVs against any other class?

 

Are you serious?

Really? Only one DD won against me in a GF, and by smoke capping. A competent GF captain won't come to you in a straight line, that's for sure.

It is not about competentcy - its about efficiened damage trade. In CV vs CV play - the guy who can deal more damage that he gets-wins. GF doesnt have the alpha damage to kill a CV fast enaugh and the reserves to send waves - it only has speed on its side. While Big E has reservers (due to faster restoration) and alpha.  All you have to do to win is to abuse the islands (forcing him to turn around in AA zone for the attack) and only allowing him to do 1 attack per squad. If you do that -you are going to kill him faster than he can kill you.

It is.

Either CV has skill and wins 100% of the time or he has no skill and you win. :Smile_trollface:

What's the problem with playing a cruiser against a DD???

It's a free star. You cap, WSAD and hydro to avoid torps, and he has to come to you to the caps or you hunt him down with RL, whatever he is dead.

Against any BB without the torps if you have torps you still you can win sometimes. You'll need more skill then him though.

CV if he's good you lost, if not you should get him by the time he'll get you.

Against the other cruiser it's a mix of skill and ships qualities.

DDs are hardest mode of all I'd say.

Even won against one in a BB, I just capped, then random WSAD and he had to come for me, then i just killed him running away from torps. You need to take a lot of them to die.

I like it, but it is hard to be matched against "wrong type". I crush DDs and cruisers in Edin, but have almost no shot against BBs-

If you do that -you are going to kill him faster than he can kill you. 

Main reason Enterprise wins is the 10 fighters in a squad that cut down most attacks. Otherwise, it's less scary than a Lexington or a Kaga for a GZ. And frankly, if Enterprise didn't have the 10 fighter squad, I'd consider it one of the less useful CVs, compared to the Lexington or the Kaga, because CV can pretty much murder non-CV anyway, so all you need is the best CV vs CV performance and for that the attack power of Lexington and Kaga is just better, unless you can actually citpen the CV. Same reason why I'd not run the Shokaku, as it doesn't even have the spammable fighter squad.

 

And GZ against Shokaku or an Enterprise that wouldn't use fighters is just going to win, because it has a bit less alpha, yet has far faster torp bombers that can outdpm enemies if the GZ doesn't just push in like an idiot. Basically, if matched vs CV, Lex and Enty were the only ones to give me issues, Shokaku with AP bombs and 2 torps per drop was beyond bad and after first spot and seeing enemy reaction to my attack I basically can choose between running to a corner to get better dpm trade or to go in and get damage from secondaries if the enemy CV was incompetent enough to push. Reserves are meaningless, because Enterprise is the sole CV that can waste your reserves, so Enterprise having faster regeneration basically only matters if you'd actually lose all your planes to another CV, which you shouldn't.
