At Ranks 22-20, you can't lose any earned Stars. At all ranks, don't worry if you're on the losing team -- if you're first in XP earned, you won't lose a Star!

Ranked Battles Season 4 Starts June 3 at 09:00 PT / 12:00 ET
Ranked Battles Season 4 Ends July 18 at 02:30 PT / 05:30 ET

Attention Captains: We've discovered that the ships’ tiers and reward from Rank 1 are showing for any selected tier. Please rest assured that you're mechanically progressing and earning, though it's simply not displaying visually, and know that we're already hard at work fixing it!  


We tweaked the system a little -- now you'll get 1,000 Doubloons for reaching Rank 2 and 2,500 Doubloons for reaching Rank 1!

Get a Ship if You're a Ranked Battles Veteran

If you have both the "Jolly Roger" and "Jolly Roger II" Flags and reach Rank 1 in Season 4, the "Jolly Roger II" flag will be exchanged for the USS Flint! There will be another opportunity to get "Jolly Roger II" in Season 5. And in Season 6, another unique Premium ship will be available!

Please note: The exchange of the Flag for the Premium ship will take place after the season ends.

Rank Details

You'll be matched with other players based on your Rank. Ranks are divided into four levels, five counting the "Super League". This is designed to provide a more level playing field and a smoother matchmaking experience.

League 3 (Ranks 15 - 11)

  • Tiers VI-VII

League 2 (Ranks 10 - 6)
