I'm at rank 11, just got there with about 75 battles and 45% - ish win rate. WR blows, but after about the 50th battle I finally got the hang of it with my Nagato. I jumped from rank 15 to 11 pretty quickly, then.
I want to grab the flag at rank 10 at least, and then see if I can get into single digits.
All I wanted was to get better than last season where I halted at 15 bc I had no T8 at the time . . . I'm happy with the results.
The gameplay and atmosphere has been mostly good, I have to say. Early on it was rocky and the cooperation was inconsistent. But since rank 15 or so things have been pretty smooth with teamplay and good communications.
I've definitely enjoyed this season.
