Yeah, same here, made it as high as 5. I’m just not sure I’m good enough to rank out.

Don't even worry about it, ranked are really not worth playing seriously anymore. You're not really motivated by WG to play ranked, it's the only gamemode I know in which you can put a lot of time and energy and still get no achievements, no progress.

After multiple attempts at Rank 9, Rank 10 seems to be a happy medium for me.  Just not worth the effort when more lucrative opportunities versus assets appear.

I was at Rank 5. Ranked is PURE PAIN, if you get to rank 1 then ooooh you get maybe 2000 steel for your suffering along the way. That's what.... 1/15th of a Stalingrad? 
Ranked is for masochists.

15 losses in a row over a 3 day period.  Currently at R3 and not expecting to make it this season.

As for WG, they screwed all the fun out of Ranked.

Sprint Ranked is the only one that is mildly fun, well I suppose regular ranked is fun if you decide only to go to R10....after that is is misery.

Unless it's 1v1 Ranked Sprint.  

Then the wins and losses are totally on you.

This.

It's a grueling grind that only true completionists have the insanity to try and complete.

Sadly, I'm usually one of them.

Season1 through Season6 was not bad, made a lot of friends back then, yes there was salt but it wasn't as bad as the crap storm the chat has become today.  Also WG had not added the amount of stars you had to win to advance and the rewards made it worth the grind.

As for competition, WG screwed it up with adding CV's.  Now it's just a matter of what team has the good coward CV player or the bad coward CV player that determines the winner.

In the end, WG has gone out of its way to crap on the player base.

That's why I'm playing but not paying.

Im the idiot here with ranked. First 20 games to rank 10 with a oppertunity to get 9th.

Next 40 games thrown away wallowing in the 10-12 rank. Demotivating. There is no point.

However Ranked does keep me somewhat sharp for Clan battles. Its similar. And meets Obj's in Combat Missions now and then so it's not all bad.

But I absolutely refuse to endure another 50-100 games just to try to breach rank 9 or whatever unicorn. Its not have any value. I am looking at the credit costs of deploying a ship into battle and hope to make a certain amount after resupply every round. Thats my situation this year credit counting like coins.
