so how can this player who has so few games and a 40percent win rate show a rank 1 in the latest season? clearly one of the bots they've been implementing in randoms...? what's your justification?

It isn't the current season.  If you select the current season, he might have played 200 games played in it for all we know.

Oh so you are saying that the player didn't play in this season, yet is rank 1?

Nevermind tier 10.  Just yesterday, I was in a Tier 9 game with mixed with Tier 7+.  The other two remaining battleships (both tier 7s), were literally hiding at grid A1/A2.  When the opposition were closing the gap to our capped zone (A) from B and C.  We lost, since I'm no super unicum.  But upon checking their records after the game, they both had sub 400 games each with tier 7 ships @40% (they also had tier 10s in their record files).

I understand the need for players to advance up the tiers as fast as possible. Which this game encourages allows.  However, the thought of me thinking that their progression was for nought creeps into my head.

Might be a bug with the system - Try to check on wows numbers. Even if it was a bot, it would still show a number of battles for this past ranked season.

There really aren't any rules.......  You could simply buy a tier 10 ship and play ranked after "x" many games I think....   In the very few games I played at tier 10, we have CPT's that seriously didn't know what keys did what and had trouble not colliding with Islands........   They all had way less than 200 games and were playing tier 10 ships.  Heck, you can sometimes "try out" ships for ranked.   A clan mate went 10-0 and jumped to tier 9 or 10 and they weren't close matches at all.   And, we've heard many that went 0-13+ and couldn't go up in rank to save their souls......  RNG on what you get team skill wise....  It's just an arcade game anymore and if you spend enough, you can have all of the gizmo's and meta ships without doing very much.........

One alternative is this could be a "shared" account. A highly skilled player helping out a younger sibling or child. It also could be someone trolling. Some people do enjoying creating mischief that they will spend money to do so.

Yes, a bot is a possibility but it isn't the last choice left.

Ranked is a grind, not a display of skill thanks to star saving. It is perfectly possible to rank out with a 40% WR. Can just takes you like a few thousand matches or so.

Ofc skilled players will generally rank out faster, but that doesn't get displayed.

You can do ranked with a 20% WR if you play enough. So my justification is, that it isn't even a ranking system in the first place. So then, riddle me why they call it Ranked.

Riddle: What is Ranked with out any Ranks?

Answer: WOWs Ranked mode.

Nope, below a certain point a player couldn't play enough matches to rank out and would simply get stuck at the last irrevocable rank. Players with winrates far below 50% rarely rank out.
