Oooof.  Next season make a promise to yourself to stop playing it if you move back a rank for a 24 hour period.  

My own experience?  I flew up to rank 8 and then would win a couple, and lose a couple.  I was one win away from seven and I lost 3 in a row.  

The famous song the Gambler comes to mind.....

Similar experience with me as well. Rank 8 to 12 in one sitting (maybe 2 hours?)

It's been "fun & engaging" with the current modes with Ranked.

Sure you can't go below 12 once above there but why not add an extra number at each end eh?

Done something like that almost every season.  And I always tell myself to stop after 2 losses in a row, unless I saved a star.

Yeah, I fell back to 12 last night. Not a fun and engaging feeling.

How to spot an exaggeration:

When it is literally impossible to go from rank 8 to 13 due to rank 12 being irrevocable.

i went from 5 to 10 to 7 to 9.  been playing dds. So i am at the mercy of support or the lack there of.  I seem to always get the Yammy, monty yoshino combo  where players keep backing up and never take map position.

I suspect the OP was just furious when he posted this.........  Ranked is such a crap shoot I stopped after three matches !!!!!  What a goat roping it has become.........

I kept shifting between 12 and 10 this entire season. For some reason I really struggle with the arms race version of ranked. In the past when I got to 10 I considered it ranking out for me. If I could get anything past 10 it was bonus. Can't do it this season it seems.

On the positive, was able to use it for grinding for my DM UU. Losses didn't show up on random record and the matches go faster.

That's why I stop at Rank 10. As soon as it changes to 4 stars its Adios Baby!

I got stuck at a yoyo between 11-12 for a week. Then luck changed and am now at 9.1

If I go back to 10.0 I stop. Been doing it that way for years.

You need to stop playing and take a break when you start to lose and get frustrated. Frustration will affect your gameplay and will likely cause you to dig the hole deeper. Also, just try getting one rank a day instead of trying to do it all at once for hours on end. I actually ranked out for the very first time this season, and feel I was able to do it by sticking to what I said above.

Ranked is a measure of persistence, not player skill. Good players will rank out faster, poor players will rank out slower, but in the end, everyone can* rank out. (Provided you play enough games, since you statistically have 42.86% chance of losing a star before factoring player skill.)

Set short term goals for yourself when playing ranked. For me, I try to have a net gain of 3-4 stars a day. It doesn't matter where I end up at the end of the day, because I know I'm always climbing up the ranks.

Don't get pulled into a losing streak because you want to rank out ASAP. The common problem is when players lose a couple of games in a row, they start caring less and let the losses affect their play.

Good luck out there.

Considering rank 12 is irrevocable youre not telling the truth.

The people who don't enjoy ranked take it too seriously

Yes, obviously, nothing is wrong with match making when I keep losing on teams 6-0 5-0 7-0.  It's got to be a personal problem, like temperament.  Another constructive comment.

I played about 6 matches and decided not to participate in ranked.

Very liberating

How to spot a conceited, world of warships  egomaniac.  Critique the game.  I'm counting the losses FYI.. I'm at 14 now.
