I see in the ranked standing page in ur profile at stage 12 a irrecoverable then the next irrecoverable is all the way at level 1.   Does it mean you can just float between 12 and 1 with needing lots of wins to get to level 1.  If thats it..... ufff with the losing streaks i have ill never move up..  lol   it maybe like quit while ur ahead?

Ranked is all about being the first place player so if you lose you don't lose a star. It's a nice place to grind your tier 7 ships for a change from 12 on 12 battles. I made it to rank 4 I think, in the second season and then fell back to rank 9 and never seriously tried to rank out ever again. It's pretty stupid that Ranked battles are trying to rank an individual, yet sticks them with a random team of people who are trying to be ranked individually too. Luck has more to do with it than skill. It most certainly doesn't rank how well you play as a team player. If WG called it Grind For Steel mode it would be more appropriately titled.

The same players tend to rank out every season.  Watch Noster or Mr G, etc etc.  They climb the ranks to number 1, every season.

They do it because they are the players that make the difference on whatever team they end up on, more often than not.  They "carry" a team that would have otherwise lost, to a win, for themselves or they are number 1 on the losing team and save their star.

They aren't doing it over and over every season, because they are just super lucky.

yup.. Its ok its something other then Random even though its almost the same. From where I stand once u get to level 12 and not being part of the wow clique or big clan with lots of friends and not being on disgord with the amount of defeats i get handed in a row it wont never happen without the saftynet of irrecoverable's.  Im still happy with level 12.. some cool gifts and a little steel.  Have fun stay safe

Yep.

Used to be an irrevocable at Rank 5 but they got rid of it a long time ago.  I guess the devs figured the users thought that was too accommodating and wanted Ranked to be more challenging.

Ever since they removed the Rank-5 irrevocable I've only played Ranked to get the flag.  This season is the first Ranked I've participated in five seasons or more, and I'm only doing it because it's Tier VII.

I doesn't have anything to do with clans, friends or discord.  You can't division with others in full ranked seasons, it's just you.

The only consistent factor in ranked is yourself. If you have a 40% wr or take 1000 battles to rank out, then it's not your team's fault.  Taking away ranked 5 as being irrevocable was a great change imo

You have to throw in Luck.  Because they can't 1 on 7.  You need to have someone spotting and capping.

Sure the individual match here and there has some RNG in it.  RNG and luck now and then, is a part of the game. 

The point is that it isn't luck that some players do it over and over, every season.  They reach rank 1 not randomly or once in a while. They reach rank 1, consistently, because they make it happen. 

The difference between a fluke and consistency, being lucky and being able to do something on command, is skill and competence.

the only way ur statment is true is IF its 1 on 1 and its not.  Big clans drop sync so whats that about? to play against each other..lol no  or discord when u can talk to people on opposing team... ya not supposed to but we alll know they do.. so the way this ranked is is def not all you.. it cant be.... the end

Sync dropping is no where near consistent enough to do anything useful other some lulz now and then.  If you want think that your reaching rank 1 is dependent on other people, you can do that.  It isn't going to get you there, but you can.

If it was 1 on 1 id agree 1000% with u

Yet the people who reach rank 1, tend to do it every season. Over and over.  Some of them often do it live on stream from start to finish, by themselves.

Crazy good luck they have.

Some are very good not taking anything away from them, i watch what they do a lot to try to learn things.. but if u are one of those good guys u tend to have a big clan, u tend to have lots of friends who may or maynot help things along and im sure lots of other little helpfull things mixed in if u are in the know and again some are good,  very good and deserve it.  If u read my posts it dont take shots at anyone it simply says it isnt gonna happen for me but it was fun.. so i guess I shot at myself.. going past that... I get handed to many losses in a row and to say its my fault. its just not it cant be... unless it was 1 on 1 then if I lost it is 100% my fault.  One of the ranked battles i got 98k and sunk 3 and still lost and only a second so lost the star. That was prob one of my best games in ranked and lost.. my fault? i dont know about that..   anyways   Have fun stay safe

So ask yourself, what's the difference between spamming games in ranked and spamming games in random? What do you lose by playing ranked over randoms and vice versa?

All they have done is removed incentives for lots of folk to continue playing ranked play. They are doing a fine job of making sure its only the same people going through rank 1 time after time.

They are doing a mighty fine job of making sure ranked play appeals to only a few people season after season.

Such a wise business decision.

Sorry... in this game is luck.  Now if they can rank out 7 times in a row with the same about of games then its skill.  Again it's Random and luck.
