Hey dudes from WG, how does this work? :cap_yes:

 

I killed all 3 enemy ships but still lost the game (last kill was ram). Shouldn't be draw?

if they have more points than you when you ram, they will still win, if you have more points when you ram, you will win :)

No CV's and in a 3 vs 3 format so that individual skill finaly matters, like it should in a competitive game mode..

Finaly we get a real ranked instead of all the other [edited] seasons we had...

Shame it's sprint though, over to quickly...

Really fun sprint. A bit short. Ranked out on day 1. But very enjoyable with shorter, faster, more brawling type of games. And no CV's.

More of this kind of stuff please. Less of that other crap.

Shame it was so short :(

One of the most fun ranked seasons I played.

Finished it with a 68% win rate in the Kitakaze. Kita was a lot of fun but dd vs dd fights are skewed in the Kitas favour so much that it wasn't much of challenge. 

In hindsight I should have played a crappier ship so I could stretch out the season a bit more....

I also have to say: this must have been the most fun I've had in WoWs in many years. Small maps, 3 vs 3. Shame it was so short.

similar happened to me yesterday. it's a stupid rule as then the same should apply if the enemy team cannot win on points but you lose all ships ... does not make sense if ships alive have precedence in one case and not the other ?

I imagine it's done so the game doesn't result in a draw

I have to say the 3v3 format is very enjoyable ... no CVs is a huge benefit (I don't want to imagine what havoc CVs would do in a reduced format like this).

This could be down to novelty but the 3vs3 format (even if the maps were engineered for Pommern-friendly CQB) was a roaring success. The possibility of somehow prolonging the ability to participate has been asked for, whether in a super-league or resetting and starting again from Rank 10. This latter was asked on Thursday's Stream and both CMs seemed to approve of the desire.

 

Perhaps people are a victim to their own success. The forums are full of players flexing unicum win rates in strong Premiums and <20 battles duration. That's great. Good players will Rank out quickly, and the majority of players you'll meet in random teams will be weaker <50% WR players who take longer to reach R1 and simply linger in the queues for longer. Even I managed a quicker than expected R1 just grinding my tech tree ships, but maybe a better solution can be found imitating Sprint 10 (the famous 1vs1 Sprint) which I called Ranked Turbo because every star and Rank was irrevocable but used the regular Ranked R10-R1 number of Stars. It required everybody to reach R1 in 40 battles (originally, you quickly nerfed that to 36 battles).

 

For good players that would at a stroke double the number of participating games, and would probably be good for weaker players too who find "win a star, lose a star" frustrating.

 

3vs3vs3 was also a great format for the Rogue Wave and Raid For the Filth events. Let's hope we see more of it.
