A new Ranked Battles Season for Tier VIII ships. Read the details in our article!


Read it on the portal

It seems like ranked isn't as big as it used to be in terms of interest. I wonder why. Is it due to the rewards being less? The season being shorter? 

I wish WG would promote it more and offer better rewards due to how much of a grind it is.

I know! They seem to have always had the mentality that a lesser tier means an easier time ranking out (therefore less rewards) but quite often it is the opposite. Lower tiers means more inexperienced teammates and more frustration!

Actually tier 8 is optimal Ranked tier as often inexperienced players rush to tier 10, Radar is equally available to everyone at 8, there are many ships to choose from at 8, and it’s not brokenly unbalanced like tier 7 Ranked.

I am thinking doing ranked battle for the first time (yeah one of those inexperienced teammates to get frustrated with). I hope the experts bear with us the newbies and help us stop being newbies fast.

The question is: Which ship to bring to ranked battles?

Any advice will be appreciated. Thx.

Just play your best and ignore the inevitable salt. People get psycho in ranked.

Just to be clear, I don't need 7 clan members in tier8 ships division to play, just hit Ranked Battles, and MM will assign the other 6 ships? 1 CV 4 BB max, or there will always be 1 CV and 4 BB's?

Going by the image it's 1 CV, 4 BBs max.

You know, I realize these events are important to a lot of players but can you dev's at least try to put SOME effort into fixing issues with the game itself please.

Client game crashes are still rampant and show no signs of improvement, matchmaking is still all over the place with excessive matchmaking wait times still common as well as severe in game packet loss which is causing latency timeouts upwards of 30 seconds multiple times during a single battle multiple times during play sessions.

These are issues that if addressed properly would go quite far towards satisfying some of the community's complaints.

If I have 17 starts from last season and I start at rank 11, do I automatically receive the rewards for ranks 18-12? Or do I miss out on account of my greatness?

This may not be a wise question, but is Ranked Battles alright for new players to play in or should we wait until we have more experience and try next year? I would hate to impede someone else's progress.

Not looking for philosophical or moral answers just how more experienced players feel about poor players participating.

You need to learn at some point. Experience is the only way to get better. Last season in T7 was my first time to Rank 1. I always stopped around Rank 6 if I got frustrated. Play what you want. Grab so free stuff and have fun. Play your game.

It's ok if you play now, but be on the other team.

the iron cross flag at rank 15 .... do we keep that flag???

only the 10% and 20% flags you receive at ranks 10 and 5 are removed at the end of the season. The Iron cross at rank 15 you will keep. 

Once the season ends, all players at Rank 15 or higher will receive a commemorative flag
