Think you're good at World of Warships? Prove it in the next season of Ranked Battles! Here's what you can haul in:
You're matched with other players based on your Rank. Ranks are divided into four levels (five counting the Super League). This provides a more level playing field and smoother matchmaking experience. By default, all players start at Rank 23. If you participated last season, you start with bonus stars equal to the number of ranks you ascended in the previous season. The number of stars for each rank are listed below. All Leagues except Super League use tier VII ships.
Example: Fishy ended Season 5 at Rank 15. The lowest Rank that Season was Rank 23. Therefore, Fishy gets eight bonus stars applied to her record this Season, putting her at Rank 19.
At Ranks 23-16, you can't lose any earned Ranks.
Don't worry if you're ever on the losing team -- if you're first in XP earned, you won't lose a Star!
Preview all the rewards by checking the "Profile" tab in the Port and hover your cursor over the ranks' cargo containers. Here are the most coveted items:
Unlike most Commemorative Flags, the ones earned during Ranked Battles Season 6 will give discounts to a ship's service cost when equipped. They're earned for reaching Rank 15, 10 and 5 accordingly and will be removed once the season ends.

Clarification! (2/6) You'll need to have reached Rank 1 in Seasons 2-6 in order to score USS Black, but the Rank 1s don't need to be across consecutive seasons to get USS Flint. However, in Season 7 your five Rank 1's won't have to be consecutive to earn USS Black.
Once you get to Rank 1, you'll be in a Ranked battle with other "Super League" players, fighting to your heart's content at tier V with a repeatable mission to haul in Containers!
Updated February 22: As of February 22 the Super League mission changed from "Play a Ranked Battle" to "Play a Ranked Battle and place in your team’s top two XP earners."
• Must use a tier V ship
• Ranked Battles only
