what's the ranked meta like now?

Postby elmoking » Wed 17 Sep 2014 17:28

I was thinking of playing ranked again. How is the meta? Are enough people playing or...?

There is only one way to be sure...

Go play ranked.

I really wish ranked would be less restricted.

Nonexistant, I'd guess. Sleska's screenshot pretty much says it: Nobody seems to play ranked, and having a "meta" requires that you have a community of players reacting to how each other are playing.

Balance is broken, and its not interesting to play nato vs nato. I think thats why all top youtube wargame players dropped wargame multiplayer, and now posting only single player videos, if posting any wargame videos at all.

Nobody plays ranked because most people don't care for 1v1 or 2v2 anyway. If they offered ranked for larger match sizes it might become more popular. And then it might even warrant its own separate set of balance mechanics and stats so that unranked play that the vast majority of the community plays isn't handicapped by stat changes intended to improve ranked play. Nothing worse than having restrictions forced on casual play that are only relevant to ranked play.

For example, ranked play needs every nation and coalition to be balanced to a fine degree. Casual play does not. In fact, casual play can offer nations more in line with their historic impact (US and USSR being the big dogs) which we have now to some degree while ranked needs more balance to ensure min-max ranked plays can't exploit stats, while in unranked play on larger servers even if someone min-maxes, their impact is mich more limited.

It's not broken, it's asymmetrical, when blue stomp and red sucks it's ASYMMETRICAL, not disbalance.
If all sides can beat each other that will be an symmetrical balance, but Eugen choose their own way and it's called asymmetrical balance.



P.S.: sorry for my english
