New Ranked Season too early?

Hello guys,

 

I just read info on new patch on NA ( https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/update-0615-let-it-snow/ )

 

Apart from Missouri removal in two months, my eye got caught by the announcement of new ranked season.

 

Isn't too early to call a new ranked? if christmas campaign tasks can't be achieved by ranked battles, a lot of players will have to choose between random for campaign or ranked.

 

Plus a lot of people will not play during holidays, so will have to wait more for their flint/Black/whatever.

 

What's your thoughts? 

 

PS. Which tier will be?:Smile_coin:

It will be tier 8 dude.

Your points are fair, pretty much needed a break from "competitive" (CW) anyway, maybe will just dont bother.

My higher ever reached is R5 and it must get hectic trying to reach R1 during a cool time like Christmas/New Year.

Maybe mid Feb early March was a wiser choice.

Think the video said Tier 8.

 

I don't mind the timing, it will run for some weeks and I assume they will try to dovetail Clan Battle and Ranked seasons together somewhat to appeal to the more competitive or simply to add variety to the Random mode for people that don't like the operations and COOP play.

For some it will be too early, for some it will be too late...

Just like prime time.

You have no obligation to take part in clan wars or Ranked, they're optional. I don't see where anyone is being "pushed".

What break? I didn't even play CW after the first week so I'm pretty much ready for Ranked.

 

Only question is Lo Yang or Kidd?

Easy that one for me, I've not got Kidd :cap_money:

There are some interesting T8 ships that will shine without the risk of facing T10 battlewagons. It could be quite a lot of fun.

To be selfishly honest, I like it. Will probably use it for Benson/Chapa grind and to grab some rewards, but mostly I'm looking forward to the second season of clan battles, which can be held earlier if a ranked season was in between. And honestly, there is enough time to reach rank one even with the holidays around.

The reason for Missouri removal: they don't want two battleships for freeXP occupying the same niche - so Musashi is going to have Radar? :Smile_teethhappy:

Musashi with Radar would be just a little bit historically inaccurate as the Japanese never developed Radar during the second world war, they preferred to rely on the mark one eyeball, long range torpedoes and night attacks

That's factually untrue. Japan was behind USA in Radar technology, but yes, they did have it and yes, they did mount it on ships. And yes, Musashi was one of the ships Radar was mounted on.

 

To quote Wikipedia (not a good source but handy for quick reference):

Quote

Musashi was built with a Type 0 hydrophone system in her bow. It was only usable while stationary or at low speed. In September 1942 a Type 21 air-search radar was installed on the roof of the 15-metre rangefinder at the top of the forward superstructure. Two Type 22 surface-search radars were installed on the forward superstructure in July 1943. During repairs in April 1944, the Type 21 radar was replaced by a more modern version and a Type 13 early-warning radar was fitted.

so, if presence of technology is your limit, Musashi could very well appear in the game equipped with both Radar and Hydro.

 

And sure, it wouldn't make much sense to have Radar on ships of a nation that was behind rather than ahead of the others technologically, but please, PLEASE don't spout nonsense when you have no idea what you're talking about. Radar was in use in Japanese navy - and not only on battleships either. If you actually bothered to check your facts, you'd find that WG could, in fact (if they were insane enough) put (historically present) Radar on much smaller IJN ships...

Quote

This is considered to have been the most useful class of destroyers Japan fielded during the war and was well regarded in the IJN. They mounted 3.9-inch (100mm) Type 98 dual-purpose guns in four twin mounts. They also were among the first Japanese vessels equipped with radar.

...like Akizuki.

 

There are many reasons why Musashi shouldn't - and won't - have Radar. But "Japanese didn't use Radar on their ships" is not one of these reasons - due to simply not being the case. Please, don't mistake relative rarity of Radar in WoWs for the reality ow WW2 technology.

We haven't had ranked since summer, in July, nearly half a year ago, I think it's fine. We could have one season of ranked evert month, like Hearthstone.

Good god the new forums are not friendly to my old ipad... sorry for  the  quadrupple quote.    But, I wanted to say that I agree with this, so I guess I'll leave them in for emphasis.   We need a longer season to account for all the people (like me :).  That will be afk due to the holidays.
