The 0.8.4 update will feature a new ranked season with teams of 7 tier X ships. A new achievement will be issued for achieving the first rank. The number of ranks and steel doesn't change compared to the 11th season.

After updating the aircraft carriers' gameplay in 0.8.0, many changes based on your feedback were done to improve the interaction of this class and other ships. Considering the introduction of the squadron take-off preparation time at the beginning of the game, we believe that aircraft carriers may be added into the ranked battles. After the gameplay changes, they have become practically the "new" class, they changed the game and will change ranked battles. There will be no more than 1 carrier for each team in the new season. Carriers are especially effective against solo targets, but a group of ships is able to protect itself from aviation, so maps and modes were chosen to let the ships support each other, but not force the whole team to stay together.

Battles will take part in "Domination" and reworked "Epicenter" modes, the latter being the same as "Rings of Saturn" from the 0.8.2 update: control areas are captured independently.

Similar to Clan battles, rental ships for ranked battles are introduced for the case where you don't have tier X ships but you want to try ranked battles. These ships will be given for battles on a certain class, so the rental destroyer may be obtained after a battle on a tier VIII or higher destroyer. This will let players use their already obtained skills. Battle results with rental ships won't count for the ranked emblem progress and you can't get battle achievements with them.

Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary.

Hi Gombee,

Will the rental ships have:

  1. Access to module upgrades like the ones provided in Clan Battles (eg Groznovoi Torps);
  2. Be able to have upgrades fitted in Slots 1-6 at the player's expense;
  3. Be able to have signals flown at player's expense; and
  4. Be able to be camouflaged at player's expense?

Will the rental ship pool be consistent for Season 12? I know that the (overly) frequent changes to the rental ships provided for Clan Battles, cause significant impediments to those players who are utilising them.

Hello commander!

We would like to let you know that it will be similar to the functions in test version, of course there can be a minor difference before it will be released.

Thank you for your comment 🙂
