Is it already over? Hmmm ah well ... usually I play only one or two games to reach R15 to get the commemorative Flag ... but on the other hand ... I can live without that which brings my grand total of ranked games this season down to a big, round 0.

 

It's not a fun experience, rarely every was so ... :cap_old:

I thought it was OK. I wanted to rank out but did not make it, best place R2***. Played Lightning throughout, 195 games. 

P2W ships mildly annoying. Loyang imo OP with 5.5 km hydro. Was simply too strong around caps, lost perhaps 20 or so games just because of that.

They hav still not banned enterprise and rather banned me from my own ban enterprise thread .

But banning a single ship is not the solution. Assume Enterprise is banned, skilled CV players will bring in Shokaku. They will rain hell on surface ships again in ranked and CBs. It will only take them a couple of games longer to rank out with Shokaku or Lexington. Keep in mind that some top CV players didn't (haven't been) even bother to play ranked. Long story short, it is more of a class problem than a single ship.

Personally, T8 is my favorite tier and I enjoyed playing a variety of ships. My goal was to reach rank6, while having a fun experience. I mostly managed to do that.

 

What I did not like: playing against Enterprise, Loyang, and Akizuki. Enterprise is obviously broken, Loyang's hydro is broken against the average DD player, Akizuki HE spam is annoying. Also I had severe ping issues for a week, resulting in unenjoyable games.

 

I liked the maps and enjoyed playing ships like NC, Irian, Atago. Had some fun with Massachusetts and played some Cossack games when I got frustrated with our Kagero getting butchered by Loyang, while I was  playing a BB. I wished to enjoy my Roma, but abandoned this endavour after four losses.

 

I also liked the better quality of players from rank 10, compared to random battles.

Ranked for me was a story of two sides - without CVs it was okay. Quite a lot of fun tooling around in a Cossack and getting into gunfights with red DDs. 

 

With CVs it was terrible. Especially if your team's CV was erm...how do I put this.... worse than the already low bar set by the majority of CV players. We won't get into the Enterprise because that horse has been flogged to death. Suffice to say WG's efforts at trying to shoehorn the REEEEEEEwork into competitive worked about as well as everyone (aside from WG) expected. 

 

Badly.

I finished the Lexington, the Implacable, the Benson, the Cleveland (almost) grinds, learned to play the Benson better (went from super-potato to normal potato) and reached rank 9. I'd call that a successful season, yes. Did I have fun? Sometimes. I tried not to care about stars, but star saving cowards make my blood boil anyway. All in all, though, not bad at all.

Number of bombs per air raid is ridiculous when facing enterprise . Can dodge shokaku .

Listen buddy enterprise can be dealt with in 12 vs 12 wher thar is possible aa support but in 7vs7 its hell lot easy to isolate bbs and rekt them with 2 clicks .

I am sure shokaku has other vulnerabilities that can be exploited for you to get certain degree of defense against her which is definitely not the case with enterprise.

Sure, but it is the same thing with Shokaku. Maybe you didn't meet much Shokaku players or good ones in ranked. It can double cita KM BBs in each pass whether in ranked, CBs or random.

I am not going into other vulnerabilities here but Shokak (IJN line in general) is actually easyest to drop cits reliably on BBs those bombs are ridiculously powerfoul and flexible as in basucally whichever altitude and orientation you drop them they can cit while Big-E-s bombs are much more fiddly affair...

Have to love how every ranked topic turns into discussion about Enterprise. Just like 80% forum turns into cv bashing. Wg adding new carrier line while most of players leaving wows becsuse of them. Brilliant!

 

Also ranks were fun other than one thing, you guessed it right, carriers...

Dont get me wrong the E is a monster BUT she is a monster because of several things coming together in the same ship, AP bombs are only one of those things and actually you might even consider them a minor one in itself, she would be equally OP even with HE bombs if the rest od the ship remained the same  maybe even more so...

I have reached my usual goal of Rank #10 in just few days at the start of the event/season - I was very satisfied... :Smile_honoring:

I usually aim for rank 11 for all the flags, camo and stuff that is within easy reach and then simply stop there.

 

My "ultimate" goal however is not the normal flags and camo but collecting the rank 14 or 15 reward flag.
