Morning Sailors,

I've been off WOWs for quite some time (about 8 months) and boy how things have changed! missions, iorn/coal etc. All great stuff, I am slowly adapting. Theres one thing though thats bothering me, Ranked awards. The last time I played. Rank 1 for the first time got you the jolly roger flag. Rank 1 a second time got you a cooler flag. Rank 1 for a third time got you the Flint, and eventually to the Black, etc etc. Is that gone? I have two Rank 1s under my belt and I was hoping to get the black the next time I ranked out, only to get 10,000 coal, which puts me nowhere even close to the Flint. So ultimately, Is this just how rank works now? no compenation for the last times weve ranked out, and we just have to grind ranked matches even more?

Theres two types of ranked now..  ranked and ranked sprint.   Currently it's ranked sprint and the rewards are much lower and the ranked sprint season is much shorter.

After next patch, theres a full ranked coming in to be played.

The current rank season is called rank blitz. Call it baby rank. The switch to coal and steel started at 0.7.6 when the arsenal was introduced. About 6 months ago. The jolly roger system is now gone. Steel is the new currency for rank. The rank reward ships are available in the arsenal . There's a 25%  discount coupon available for ship purchase. An example would be the Stalingrad. Nominal price is 28k steel. It's 21k steel with the coupon. Here's a list of the rewards when they kicked it off in August.

Rank Reward
22 500,000 Credits
21 10 signals each of Sierra Mike, November Echo Setteseven, Victor Lima, India X-Ray, Juliet Whiskey Unaone, Mike Yankee Soxisix, 100 Steel

Welcome back, I cannot summarise better then what @Bill_Halsey did for the rewards and system. 

If you did rank out twice, you should have 5500 steel. With the snowflakes event, and another ranked you will have enough to get the Black.

@Bill_Halsey Thank you for that detailed description. I like the change, however, It's a little disappointing that the ranked ships were in reasonable reach, now I'll have to grind ranked twice as much to get them :(

Guys, Blitz is the name of the mobile app.

Ranked Sprint is the name of the mode.

Had to read it again to make sense. But yes, reward ships lost their exclusivity due in part to popular opinion. The irony is that people who can earn them in the first place do not need OP reward ships to club the average potato.

A 67% wr Izumo is superior to a 45% wr Stalingrad.
