Rank levels season 2.
« on: Jun 09, 2019, 07:14 PM »
Hello!


I haven’t upgraded past 4 ER on any of my accounts.


However, I feel that progression has been better this season.  Currently my miniest of mini’s (which had less unlock tokens to start off with) has reached rank 20.


Last season I really struggled. She hit a max of rank 17, finished on 16.  Part of this was being matched with people who hadn’t  deployed their ERs and yet had managed to work out how to deploy their defences. Since the change to MM I have found that my matches have been fairer. That is not to say that i don’t get  the odd one or two which are more developed than me.  Can’t be 100% perfect on this.


So I am curious as to how other people are feeling about their progression through the ranks.


Particularly those of us who are limited by HQ on how many we can unlock... do you think that this season has allowed you to better progress through the ranks? And get better tokens to upgrade quicker? Or is it just as much of a slog as last time.

I'm only at four ERs. That's on purpose. I wait until I have enough unlock tokens to unlock everything between each level of ERs. I have enough now that I'll probably move up to five ERs today or tomorrow. I'm progressing at about the same pace but it is requiring me to use different attack strategies this season. Last season I slogged through with CRZM. Without cryos unlocked yet, I was running HZ for awhile but noticed that I was having trouble taking all four ERs out due to the high number of defenses (machine gun, mortar, RLs) that are designed to take them out. My opponents were using grens which I hate to use. I switched to them and now I'm progressing just fine.

I hate them. I also hate TMeds but I use them to clear Dr. T and NCPs because there rarely is ever a loss of troops. I don't ignore troop combos based on my dislike of them.

I have gotten higher in rank this season.....currently between 19 and 20......last season I made it to 17.  I have 6 ER's placed and trying the AH rush.  It's not working out well.  I need to change my troop combo.  I'm currently getting spanked by RCZM + Sparky or Kavan....Yikes.........Still fun but getting to be challenging.....

I hit L6 last season with no exploits. It was a learning curve of sorts. But i thought this season would be much harder with so many more peeps playing, so far with 12 days to go im at L5. I think its easier than last season. Im loving warships!

It is interesting to read other people’s experiences on here.

Others seem to be moving up as well.

Still hoping I can get my mini’s to level 21....  getting close then the game throws me a curve ball and I get a 7ER base lol

yeah......I switched my troops to all grens with either Kavan second wind or sparky critter swarm......I can clear bases but I lose on time.....I'm currently level 20 with one star....I'm hoping to make it to 21 with the days left but we will see.....

When I watch my replays it's a mixture of HCZM with brick BO or Kavan......The other one is TMed with Sparky but I can usually get the Tmed with my Doom Cannon placement

I have been watching youtube streams of OPdestroy and Fritz and they use Warriors with Bullit 1 boat rifles.....1 boat grens <---mine clearing......Then bullit (taunt) and warrior rush.  They have reached legendary tier and it's all about getting 1-2 ERs down for the win....nothing much past that.

It’s a great thing about Warships I think, that people use a variety of troop types and combinations.

I feel that it’s a case of necessity is the mother of invention lol.

I missed out on a few chests at the start due to holiday. I couldn’t open them all before leaving the UK and managed to cap at 4 chests 😂

I really want to get myself to  Crystal teir for the rewards next season (provided no complete reset...) and then maybe I can do better.

I’m actually down a little this season. This offensive season was very defense oriented at lower levels and I’ve spent most of the season at the 3-4 ER level and only went up to 5 recently which has allowed me to reach level 19 on 2 of my accounts. Last season I made a big push at the end after they changed the chest requirement to 8 ERs and people were getting their panties in a knot and dropping levels.

Nah, really ?! SC got it wrong! Lmao.

 I managed  to get to 22 on indigo and back up to 21 ish on Indy but am dropping again.

I opened up to 6ER on both my other accounts but I haven’t found a base design I like yet. But at the moment I can’t see me hitting crystal.

I’m hoping that I will be able to play this properly next season, I missed out on quite a few chests and rushed drunken attacks due to hols didn’t help.

But I am finding getting innovative helps. Using  1 boat of grens to clear some mines and get  extra GBE for a 7 boat warrior rush can help.... just make sure the grens are dead before launching warriors... 🙈

It may not help win, but it can help by getting an extra ER.


I can understand the complaints. I’m in a position with indigo where today, I’m being matched with people who are 6 ER not 5. Iris very hit and miss what I can do on those bases. The number of protos is ridiculous for an “offensive” season. And it just reminds me of the imbalance.


I have found that this season hasn’t gone so fast with upgrading my tree. I feel like I’m struggling sometimes. And the journey feels quite jerky!
