Hey there captains!

 

I'm happy to see a new ranked season coming up and I have a little contest in mind for those of you who want to be ... a bit more challenged than others. Thus the rules are a bit strict - but we don't want to pamper you, right? ;) So I'll be giving away a Blyskawica for the first to reach rank #1 in the...almighty Atlanta or Pensacola only - and 2.500 dubloons for the person who comes in second.

 

What do you need to do?

- reach rank 1 with Atlanta OR Pensacola ONLY (no other ship is allowed) from rank 15 on

- screenshot of your profile / ranked season results for season 4 with ships used

- screenshot of the last battle that put you on rank 1 (need it for the timestamp)

 

Rewards:

1st place:  Blyskawica (or something comparable if you have that one already)

2nd place: 2.500 Dubloons

 

Enjoy! #tryhard

better not catch you crying on stream because people are using atlantas or Pepsicola's.

 

For this they get my absolution - but only for this :trollface:

Oh gods, i'm so over this. I was doubting wether to try engaging in ranked, since this will be my first season, but you are combining a deadly desire to compete with my beyond logical love for Atlanta here.

 

Also, where can i fax my future therapy bills ? :hiding:

Candy from a baby since the Atlanta is the best premium ship in the game. :)

Im almost rank 8, have Pensacola 2 times and atlanta maybe 3 times.

Atlanta has great potential on shatter with hydrosearch, all dds just popping smoke like losers and then while they chill in the smoke you come with the hydro and flush the toilet, kawush.

 

Im really curious if anyone will rank with exclusively these ships.

What was the reason choosing those 2 ships?

Both are considered to be bad - so I wanted to see if anybody would be willing to accept the challenge and work his / her way up to the top with the allegedly weaker ships. It's a challenge :)

Ok, got to rank 15.

 

So a profile screenshot showing that the only tier 7 I used was one of them, and results of the last battle, right?

Atlanta is the number 2 cruiser behind Myoko in win rate, it looks like a great choice.

 

p4nix is currently at rank 7 with a 70% win rate after 55 games, I hope they look at this thread :great:

This reminds me of a challenge ichase once did. Asking people to drive a bb only backwards and only shooting HE did not make him very popular either....

 

P.S.: Mejash also mentioned an Atlanta challenge in his stream. And when I asked him about it a few days later, he stood by it, so....

This is hardly comparable to this challenge. All I'm asking for is taking a ship that has a very bad reputation and to show whether it's possible to make it to rank 1 with it or not. Nobody's forced to take it and with the current DD heavy meta the Atlanta is actually a good ship on most maps except for ocean. Nobody forces you to play it, nobody asks for stupid maneuvers in it - and it's still a way better choice than some other ships I've seen the past days ;)

Nah man, pepsi is fine.

Actually like the gun placement compared to Myoko. And as long as you dont give flat broadside you will be fine.

Pepsi, no, wouldn't even think about this, but Atlanta is the best cruiser for ranked imo, especially for lower (higher) ranks. Unfortunately i don't own it. Hats off players with success in RB's in cruisers. I've tried it all, cruisers are in worst position by far.

Doing it in a Pensacola is rather frustrating, every battleship shell that hits you is a citadel.

I played a lot of Pepsi from rank 15 to 13/12. She is definitely a viable option as DD hunter. I dislike IJN cruisers a lot due to their sluggish handling.

In the end, I re-purchased my Yorck though. I seem to die more often but I have the feeling of accomplishing more tasks with her. Just personal preference, of course. Pepsi is a fine ship for ranked. Unfortunately, I noticed this contest too late and I got stuck with tons of work, so reaching rank 1 is out of question by now.
