The objective of ranked is to reach rank 1.  If you have done that, there is nothing left to do in the ranked mode.  You have "won" (for now).

In addition to what Burnsy has said, Ranked is broken up into 3 leagues Bronze, Silver and Gold with each utilizing different tiers. Currently Bronze is Tier 6 to Tier 7, Silver is Tier 8 to Tier 9, and Gold is just Tier 10. To progress from one to the other you have to play through the qualifiers (which is just playing in Silver until you have obtained 5 stars), once you've finished that, then you will start playing in the next league in the next sprint.

So basically, I have to enlist a different boat to continue on in Ranked battles?

Correct, at least until the next sprint at which point if you don't qualify for silver, you will start at Rank 10 in bronze again.

After i achieved a #1 ranking in Ranked battles, why am i no longer able to play that ship (Scharnhorst)?

Ranked for Bronze League this season is Tier VI and VII ships. Once you reach Rank 1 in Bronze, you have two options: 1) Stop playing Ranked until this Wednesday when the next Ranked Sprint starts. You will restart in Bronze League at Rank 10 and can earn all Bronze League rewards again playing Tier VI and VII ships. 2) Switch to Tier VIII and IX ships and win a net five matches in the Silver League qualifiers. If you win a net five matches before the end of the sprint, you will start the next Sprint in Silver League playing Tier VIII and IX ships for slightly more rewards.

Note - to get notably better rewards in Silver League compared to reaching Rank 1 in Bronze, you actually need to reach Rank 1 in Silver. Otherwise for 18 wins in Silver League, the rewards are more or less comparable to reaching Rank 1 in Bronze League.

Why is nobody ever reading the news articles explaining the rules of the mode, or the ingame explanations etc.

All described here: https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/general-news/ranked-battles-3/

TL;DR: After reaching R1 in a specific league you are automatically placed in the Qualifiers for the next league, which is set in the next league (hence different tiers etc.). If you finish Quals before the sprint ends, you start the next sprint in the higher league, otherwise you will remain in the league where you are now.

be warned, if you win those upcoming games with your T8 and T9 ships, you will start the next ranked season in silver (t8-t9 ships),

meaning you won't be able to play your Scharnhorst.

Which is why many do not try to rank out of Bronze. Take a loss at rank two is easy. Continue to play the good ship.

Not this, per se, but if you want to remain in Bronze or you specifically want to play Tier VI and VII in Ranked and not the Tier VIII and IX in Silver, just don't win five qualifier battles. You can get Rank 1 andwin four qualifier battles, just don't win five.

Bring Leone into Ranked! It will be a very different experience from Scharnhorst.

I've run Leone a few times there. It's...not as bad you as might think. I've never seen another, so maybe it's just undiscovered greatness!
