1.  At what rank does one stop receiving the "bonus star" upon ranking up?

2.  If you drop a rank, and then achieve the lost rank again, do you still get a "bonus star" (if it was given the first time) when ranking up a second time?

1. I don’t believe that mechanic changes for any rank.

2. Good question, you did in the ranked sprint but I’m not exactly sure in regular ranked. Never paid close enough attention I guess

I think rank 10 stops giving you the bonus.

That's what I remember from the past...can anyone at Rank 10 or below confirm this is the way it works this season?  No bonus star for ranking 10 or below?

Lol I just made it there today.  Confirmed.

It has been a slog so far.  I have been using the Belfast and IJN DDs and been doing fairly well.  However the AFKs, yolos, and back of the line campers have made it rough.

The first time you reach a rank, let’s say 13, you get an extra star. So you just need 1 win to go to rank 12.

At ranks above 10, when you achieve a new Rank, one of the stars is already credited. So, if you need 3 Stars for the next rank, one is credited and you only need to earn two stars. It also means you can lose your first match at a rank and not fall back to the higher rank.

It rank 10, you stop getting this free star at each rank, so it becomes harder to make the next rank.

1.  Rank 10 i think is when the bonus stars stop being awarded. 

2.  No - has this ever happened?  I thought you only got a bonus star on the first time you achieved a (low) rank.

There have been ranked seasons in the past where you got the star again. I can't vouch for this season, because I didn't lose a rank till tier IX.
