    This thread is dedicated to us souls who aren't as superb as those A+99 players and can be somewhat satisfied with a B or even a C. If you find yourself hitting that very nice equillibrium of kills/deaths in Splat Zones and get a relatively half and half win loss ratio, then you may have found your niche. But that's nothing to worry about, there are others. Not everyone can be at the top.

    For myself, I find that I'm a very solid B+ player. I fall down to B occasionally and skyrocket to A on a good day, but overall I find myself in the B+ rank more often than not. B poses little challenge while A- wipes the floor with me. I dunno how there could be such a huge difference, but apparently there is.

    What's your "forever rank"?

    I'm stuck in A+. Why won't the game let me go to S rank? ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

    I've been in limbo between B+ and A- for a week now, and it seems like that's where I'll stay until I figure out what I need to improve on.

    I find I either have a run of great games or a run of bad games, so can rise or fall 2 ranks in a single session. Should just take a break when I'm playing bad but it's just too addictive. Slipped right back down from B to C+ today :(

    I'm going to be at C+ forever because I'm too afraid of losing points to play rank.

    I got the game last week and have been steadily climbing, haven't been walled yet.

    But guys, I wouldn't worry much about your rank in this. When party teams come out,being part of a good team will be what matters.

    Anyone still stuck in a certain rank belongs where they are until they can figure out what they need to do to improve.

    You know, salted squid is a delicacy in some places.
    On a more serious note, I've never really been a fan of king of the hill in any game.

    That happened to me for ages, there's a big step up from C+ players to B- players it seems.

    Im stuck at C+ too. Everytime I get into B-, I dont get outplayed but just teamed with B- players who are twice as clueless as me. Once you get into B-, working as team starts to count I think.

    Get good? Wish I have the time :)

    I'm also stuck at C+/B-. I'm not surprised at all, the wall I've hit in rank reflects the wall I've hit in skill...I can't really work out what weapon feels right for me in ranked. At least losing usually teaches you more than getting carried through wins.

    So I've had the game about a week now and I've gotten to A this morning. Way less stressful than B and way more fun. I'd say I'm going an average of 6-3 every game in A, with some better games looking like 10-2 against A+ teams.

    I got there by just playing patient, not letting stupid losses bother me long term, and just slowly climbing without caring about my rank. I used this build using a normal Splattershot or Custom Squelcher depending on the maps in rotation, along with some other random stuff I felt like doing.

    So my advice to you guys is to just play and not worry about gold or rank. Stay positive and find an alternate weapon to use for map rotations that your main weapon doesn't do too well on. Just let yourself win and lose, and slowly climb the ladder over time until you find yourself in A. Good luck!

    Lately I have been experimenting with making separate accounts and trying to climb rank with solely 1 weapon so I can master the use of that weapon in the various maps. Been having a hard time in the B/B+ range with my E-liter. Sure, I've made a few mistakes but I usually average a 6/1 KD ratio and the weapon/team distribution lately has been crazy. My team has been 4 chargers in the mall. 3 chargers and an inkbrush in Urchin, 3 dual squelshers with my charger in Urchin, etc. I find it harder to carry, especially on maps like Urchin (probably the map I struggle with most) when the weapon distribution has been so off. I hope the new update fixes that. I mean having variety in teams is fun but having all of one weapon on a single team isnt. /end rant.

    Stuck on B right now because I consistently win one match, start another and disconnect. It's incredibly unfortunate. I even play 3 or 4 matches in regular Turf Wars to make sure my internet won't burp. As soon as I go over into Ranked, DISCONNECT

    *sigh*

    I will stay in B ranks forever, since I don't play ranked at all.

    C, since I generally stay out of ranked so I don't breakdown from too many consecutive losses.

    Well... I know I said I would be B ranks forever... But I somehow managed to get to A+ 64

    Must have been the stage selection. I won like 15 matches in a row on the Warehouse and Moray time slot earlier.

    I'm going to be stuck at B- or B forever. I can't seem to get a consistant enough winning streak in order to get up to B+, and I keep ranking down from B to B-, then right back up to B. I've been stuck in the loop for the longest time . >_>

    My rise and fall depends entirely on whether I use a weapon that can carry whole teams or not. It's pretty boring. :/

    Well now that there's a ranked mode that doesn't completely bore me to death, I've been locked at B- for a while.

    Hey, at least it's a passing grade.

    I'm not really stuck at any rank. I'm at Rank A- right now and haven't touched Ranked in a while because of a couple of reasons. I could probably make it to A+ in due time but that mode makes me salty and I'm just playing the game to have fun, really.

    Honestly the only reason I'm at A- in the first place is because I wanted to get to a high rank to prove to myself I'm not that bad at the game LOL

    Been stuck at B- occasionally dropping down to C+. I need to work on my movement, using Y to orient myself quicker and also to be a bit more patient when things get a little hairy.

    EDIT: after this post, i made it up to B+ then dropped all the way down to C+ again. This was the best thing that could have happened. I started to not care about rank after that and just played to improve myself.

    This is important. Stop playing to win for a while and instead play to improve yourself. I have now not been stuck at any rank, and reached "A" just this weekend.
