Tier 10 ranked, can you go back to tier 8?

I notice that 16 is not irrevocable so you can lose it and drop down to 17, but once you make 15 if you don't have any tier 10 ships you are done with ranked.  Is that correct?  You can't fall back down from 15 to 16.

He's basing that on Random battles.

I’m not even going to play rank/clan till this T10 train dies. I’m tired of it, it’s become both boring and annoying. I don’t have any T10s, and tbh, I don’t want one. I can rank up once and then I’m done with rank.. that’s complete unfair in my opinion, I love T8, it’s the most balanced tier in my opinion, but T10 is a big fat NO!

What really would have been a hit with many would have been tier 5 till rank 16 then tier 8 rank 15-2 and finally tier 10 at rank 1.

I don't play randoms.  They are CANCER.   I have 236 random battles ONLY because there was some type of marathon probably for a free tank, otherwise, I would have ZERO.  I have over 2,500 games in COOP and over 2,500 in Operations.  They are both VERY fun, but randoms are CANCER. 

I have a 98% winrate in COOP.  You will say it's just COOP, but in 2,500 COOP games I have only lost 71 times.  Many of those losses there were several AFK's on my team.  Recently, I am winning at 100%  I have not lost in over 500 games.  I want to get my winrate over 99%.

I only play ranked to grind stock tanks.  Plus, I don't have any tier 10's so because I can't advance pass 16, I am not doing very well so I can still grind for the entire month.  I didn't know this and I am at 17 so if I win 4 battles I am locked out of ranked so I have to make sure I lose them all.  It's really a stupid system.  It should let you continue to play tier 8 as long as you want.  I have lost 14 straight, but prior to that I was doing very well and won like 12 straight to get to 17.  I am about to go back in, go enemy team.  Please beat us badly.

Ehh dunno, I hardly ever play Randoms except to farm rewards, complete campaigns, or grind stock ships up quickly. Playing Ranked is no different than playing Randoms, actually a bit nicer since there are fewer red ships and the maps are smaller. Co-op players will do just fine there since gameplay is a bit more aggressive than normal Random battles where everyone turns tail and runs at the first shots fired.

That all would make sense - everyone's win rate in coop should be at least 90% if not close to 95%.  Randoms are only cancer if you let it be.  I guess I just like more of a challenge.

Actually my win rate in co-op is kind of low for co-op players. I work nights and keep my schedule on my days off so I play lots of matches in the wee hours. Often I am the only human on my team and it makes for really exciting matches. I usually break out a carrier and try to keep my bot team alive but the red bots love to bum rush and you just can not kill them fast enough..  Anyways I am in the low 90's I think, been a while since I looked.

I agree with the other poster. If you have less than 300 games in PVP, you should just avoid ranked all together. CO-OP is for brand new players just learning the game. You will get smoked in ranked.

I've noticed the fail trolls have already gathered around 16 and 17.  I've been watching battles that leave me pulling my hair with snipeitz and Snipemarks and people refusing to close with battleships that live in the 15-10km belt.  Less team killing this time, but still as frustrating.

Not gonna lie, I only got a single game in my Baltimore into Ranked and none in my Bismarck or Richelieu because I didn't read the fine print. I had been hoping to grind them, but like so many other people I capped out at rank 10 last season, so as soon as I got those two stars my options became Hindenburg, Worcester, or "A strange game, the only winning move is not to play."

Granted I can still work on getting their legendary modules in ranked, and maybe even get my first 19 pointer on Hindy (woot!), but I'm still a tad miffed by how the levels worked out.
