Be prepared to Rank Battles season 5!

 

Rank Battles are coming back and we want every player to meet a new season up in arms. Here you can find the very first piece of information that is intended to provide you with an opportunity to have enough time to upgrade one of required ships or train a commander, if needed.

 

Mono-tier leagues

To provide totally equal conditions for all players and make battles more skill-based, every rank will be limited by the only ship tier allowed. Also, there will be more safe ranks for the beginners (up to rank 16), compare with the previous season.

 

Up to Rank 16: Tier VI ships only

Rank 15 – Rank 1: Tier VIII ships only

 

The season starts at the beginning of October – you still have enough time to prepare yourself!

In Port: Hosho, Langley, Bogue, La Galissonniere, New Mexico, Gnevny, Fiji, Yorck, Edinburgh
Premium Ships: ARP Hiei, Warspite, ARP Ashigara, ARP Nachi, Saipan, Alabama, Tirpitz

At tier 6, expect a lot of Bayerns, possibly New Mexicos if Bayerns don't fare as well in ranked. Expect to see Clevelands for AA, and Budyonnys. Nurnbergs and Aobas don't seem to do as well. And expect World of Farraguts and Anshans; gunboat/'fleet' DDs do well in ranked. 

Tier 10: Khabarovsk, Kurfurst, Minotaur, Tier 9: Fletcher, Friedrich, Udaloi,, Z-46 Tier 8: North Carolina, Bismarck, Z-23, Edinburgh ARP Takao, Akizuki, Kiev, Ognevoi Tier 7: all ARP Myokos, Gneisenau, Leningrad, ShiratsuyuFiji, Tier 6: Budyonny, FarragutShinonome, Fuso, Leander, Bayern, Graf Spee  Tier 5: Kamikaze-R, all ARP Kongos Tier 4: Clemson, IshizuchiV170, Kaiser Tier 2: Tachibana, Mikasa

Can you provide any news on the mechanics of the ranking system?

 

Following Season 4, there was supposed to be a big post discussing some of the critical feedback that was given to WG by the community, but I hadn't seen anything yet.

 

I'd just like to know if it will be different from Season 4.

 

Many thanks!

Ok, so... Ranked Battles will consist of only 2 tiers = 6 & 8?

I found my Budyonny was a real asset in Ranked. My Anshan didn't do as well. The Cleveland is good but return fire is so focused on this ship I didn't find she could stay afloat the whole match. Nurnberg, although a good ship, didn't seem to do so well for me in Ranked.

 

I will be using Budyonny/Anshan at T6 and Benson at T8.

It says "Tier 6 Only." Blys is tier 7. It's not that hard to understand.

Aww, just noticed no Tier 7s. Meh, whatever I'll bring Farragut and Benson! :izmena:

My Farragut is ready. For tier 8 I guess I'm using Bismarck or my AA-troll-build North Carolina, depending on how CV-heavy the ranked meta is, unless I buy Benson back; I wasn't expecting tier 8 for ranked with all the 7s that have come out. 

Tier 10: Khabarovsk, Kurfurst, Minotaur, Tier 9: Fletcher, Friedrich, Udaloi,, Z-46 Tier 8: North Carolina, Bismarck, Z-23, Edinburgh ARP Takao, Akizuki, Kiev, Ognevoi Tier 7: all ARP Myokos, Gneisenau, Leningrad, ShiratsuyuFiji, Tier 6: Budyonny, FarragutShinonome, Fuso, Leander, Bayern, Graf Spee  Tier 5: Kamikaze-R, all ARP Kongos Tier 4: Clemson, IshizuchiV170, Kaiser Tier 2: Tachibana, Mikasa

Nice to see they use 1 tier only. Previous ones made people being up-tiered tough to play and hurting the team. This is a nice change.

 

I suspect T8 will be Wall of Bensons and Bismarcks unfortunately. I'll bring something different for a change,.

Not sure I like the mono-tier idea or not, I'd rather they just keep people from using stock ships though.

Disagree. It is a competitive arena, much more so than PvP. You are usually hurting your team;s chances if you bring the lower tier in a 2-tier encounter (with few exceptions). Bringing a stock ship is not a good idea either. You should bring your best ship for the tier, with your best captain. Stock ships belong in PvE or PvP for grinding. Ranked, although it contributes to the grind, is not the place for it. Bring the best you've got and the ones you are good at.

I played in all seasons 1-4 so far. I found it intense and nerve-wracking at times. I quit at some point, tired of the yo-yo movements.

I am playing better nowadays, so I'll try to push to end up at a better rank that I have done in the past.

Hm.  Don't have anything T8 yet and I don't think I'll have time to buy and grind up anything in that tier by October.  I suppose I could buy a T8 premium but they's expensive.... I'll probably just plan to make a run to Rank 16 for the flags n' stuff and leave it at that.
