Ok i have seen topics of why play co-op or random. So why do you play ranked.

For myself the steel. or dubs. I only play bronze. Yes the game can get toxic , decent rewards?

And as i dislike CV there are less here than most games ... me thinks the aa is better and they cant just [edited] everyone.

I have if lucky had some great matches win or loose rare but id rather play this than random co-op is a fnk joke.

Simple. I want steel. Annoyance is temporary, big f-off guns are forever.

I like the small group format- 7v7 is just like clan battles without clannies. I do tend to see the same people frequently,  so that can be good (or bad depending on the situation).

The steel and dubs are good, and silver league has been a good challenge  to help me improve.

I've turned off chat, which has helped the toxicity,  although that was not as toxic as some randoms I've been in recently.

To borrow someone else’s whiny complaint about another game mode:

“The bad MM, bad players, boring game play and all the salt,” that’s why I keep on playing ranked.

I do like the format. As a solo player it provides the most "fair" and balanced play experience. Individual influence is maximized, and there's even a mechanic in place to not punish you if you deliver a good performance. 

The setup is also much more consistent and predictable, making it the optimal mode to farm resources with the better reward ratio. Add on top the extra camos, steel and dubs... Nothing pays better.

The meta is much more active and fast paced, aggressive gameplay is highly rewarded. It is also easier to game the Q in your favor, dodging CVs is trivial and drop line ups are fairly predictable, giving you time to adjust your ship type as better suits the pool... Dis I say playing against CVs is for all practical purposes optional? 

Player quality is also better on avg than Randoms and tbh I find Randoms much more frustrating than Ranked. The only problem with Ranked is it gets repetitive (thus boring)... But it isn't that big of a problem for me as I just play a couple matches a day and rotate modes a lot.

Honestly, Ranked saved WoWS for me. It is my undisputed go-to game mode.

By the end of the season, Bronze is pretty much auto-win. It's a good place to chill.

I dabbled in ranked until the yoyos hit and it would irritate me and bore me, neither of which are what I play games for. I used to play ranked sprint and really enjoyed it, and then they messed around with it and I don't anymore.

because i hope wows will increase the rewards ( steel ,dubs ) and keep it at tier X so people with experience , and a play style all their own have a place to play thats highly competitive ..i also hope someday wows can pick up a sponsor to add to the rewards and grow the tier X player base in this mode .. 

only competitive mode where all ships made  and released to the public are allowed to  play competitively  

but wows has to keep tech tree rentals out of this mode ...

It is much easier to carry in ranked than in randoms due to there being less players on each side. Additionally, ranked playstyle is generally more agressive for the aformentioned reason which also makes it fun.

no 

The mixed tiers is the best format for Ranked, it gives you the most variety... if you like T. X you can play at Gold if that's what you want. Personally I deeply dislike T. X.

Ranked is not and will never be a place just for "people with experience". It is open for everyone as any other game mode, you can find a higher level of experience on average but there will always be a portion of newbies, nothing wrong there.

And above all... Ranked is not a competitive mode, just read the thread... it is mostly a farming mode.

To test my skills.
To earn rewards.

Generally I participate in the Bronze League and once in a blue moon I get the urge to play in the Silver League for a few games.

Occasionally I earn Close-Quarters Expert achievements with a CV.  
"Priceless."  :-)

I enjoy Ranked for the most part, but a lot of it is that A) the rewards are best and B) it's an eligible game mode for most grinding in missions and such.

I like the smaller team sizes, the fixed Tier spread, and the way that I can play in Silver League where I don't have to play with the super unicums and low-skill but persistent tryhards in Gold but also don't have to deal with as many irredeemable potatoes as in Bronze.

Steel. And the reward camos look pretty cool, lol. But the main reason is steel. I only play Bronze, but still pretty easy getting 600 steel every couple of weeks.
