Well, what is there to say. Sky piggies gonna kill what little fun I've had at t7.

 

But with all the usual negativity, the test mode was fair for a change. 10 ranks, each only 1 star. And all ranks safe. :Smile_great:

Its not easy to reach rank 1 when there isn't enough players to make a battle. I suggest, again, to let go the under rank 5 and above rank 5 requirement for MM  in PTS.

You're probably right about the sky pigs. But I do hope you drop less if you get into a bad losing streak.

These are testing conditions. I'd be very suprised if anything changes on live, i.e. last safe rank at 12. And honestly, of the many things that are wrong with ranked, making it easier for the match spammers is not one of them.

I have to say I really enjoyed ranked season 16 at T7. I think T7 offers quite a well-balanced environment for this type of competitive play with a few but not too many radar ships, some interesting premiums with unique playstyles to play with or against and a good overall powerlevel. The only problem probably is that T7 cruisers tend not to survive too well in those small team sizes… But I think that could partially be fixed by stretching out the caps a little compared to last season's cap placement and sizing up the teams to 8v8. That way the battle wouldn't compress itself as much as it did and cruisers could have a little more wiggle room.

 

What I would also really love to see would be a T5 season :)

 

Different question: Have you ever considered banning specific ships from ranked, like the ones you deemed too strong yourself (Belfast, Kutuzov etc.)?

Ranked seems dead on PTS.

Can't find 1 team for play... I'm waiting in the queue for 10 minutes each time...


Hi Captain, 
On the Public Test Server, due to a minor number of players participating, the matchmaking can take longer, especially if you are choosing a game mode that is not “Random Battles”.

Does PTS have 1 worldwide server (like steam platform have) or is it PTS EU, PTS US, etc?

I see offen in queue that there are in example 8-10 players ''in my zone'', but at least the same amount more is in queue as well which are marked as out of range or something.

I would like to know why match maker can't connect all players in queue so it would not wait too long for more players from same zone.

Hi Captain, 

 

Yes, the server of the Public Test is global; but sometimes it still requires more time to assemble a match because on PT there are significantly fewer users with the right conditions compared to the Main Servers environment. (Also the peek of players is usually at the begging of Public Test, many users, in fact, stop playing PT once they completed the missions and tried all the news 😊).
