Ranking

From Kancolle Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

Ranking serves as the competitive aspect of Kantai Collection. You compete against other Admirals on your server to see who can earn the most points in a month doing various activities. Ranking rewards players with rare equipment.

  • You can view your rank in the Military Records menu under the Ranking tab.
  • Ranks are updated twice daily at 0300 and 1500 JST.
  • Rank points stop counting for the daily update at 0200 and 1400 JST.
    • This means any points earned after this cut off will count towards the next update.
  • The final cut off for the month is at 2200 JST on the last day of the month.
    • Any points from sorties, expeditions and exercises earned after this point count towards the next month.
    • Any points from EOs and Quests will be lost.
    • The ranking page will not reflect the points earned between 1400 and 2200 JST on the final day.
  • Rare equipment from ranking is not necessarily useful. Please see Rank Rewards for a list of historical rewards.
  • Difficulty of ranking varies from server to server. Please see Rank History for the general pattern of rank thresholds for your server.
    • Note that rank history before August 2018 are not indicative of current ranking difficulty because those were from Phase 1.
  • You will not be able to rank if you have reached the HQ experience cap of 300,000,000.
  • Admirals who have breached the Terms of Service may be banned from ranking. They will be unable to rank for an unknown period of time.
  • Admirals with the same amount of rank points will be sorted by HQ experience.
  • For tips on how to rank, please see the help page.

Reward Tiers

Normal Tiers

The standard ranking tiers are:

  • Top 5
  • Top 20
  • Top 100
  • Top 500

Higher tiers provide more and better rewards. The rankings also get more competitive as you climb the tiers. T20 - and sometimes T100 - requires careful planning, resource management and strategy. Because of the way points are earned, it becomes marginally easier to rank throughout the year if you rank consistently. Rewards are distributed with a month lag. I.e the reward for June's ranking is distributed at the end of July. Finalised rank points are also displayed at that time.


Special Tiers

The Special reward tiers were introduced during Phase 2. They are:

  • Lucky Special Operations Fleet Group (キリ番特務艦隊群)
    • Rank 600, 700, 800, 880, 888, 900, 999, and 1000.
  • Choice Fleet Name & Comment Striking Force Group (艦隊名&コメント選抜遊撃部隊群)
    • 8 Admirals.

Admirals who are selected will receive the same reward as the Top 500. To be eligible, you need to be within the top 501-1,000 Admirals in your server. Special reward tiers are essentially a lottery and shouldn't be relied upon for ranking rewards.

Earning Points

Initial Points

These points are also known as "Carry Over" points. It is based on the amount of HQ experience earned in the current year to date and the amount of bonus points earned in the previous month. These points are calculated at 0300 JST on the first day of the month.

[math]\text{RP}_\text{initial} = \frac{\text{RP}_\text{YTD}}{50,000} + \frac{\text{RP}_\text{prev-bonus}}{35}[/math]

  • [math]\text{RP}_\text{YTD}[/math] is the total year-to-date HQ exp earned since January.
    • There is no way to check the carry over from HQ exp in game. You will need to keep records of your own to keep track.
  • [math]\text{BonusRP}_\text{PrevMonth}[/math] is the total amount of EO and quest bonus points earned in the previous month.

Monthly Points

These points are earned from sorties, exercises and expeditions. Please see HQ experience for information on HQ experience is earned. Note that HQ experience doesn't translate directly to rank points, points earned is given by the following formula:

[math]\text{RP}_\text{month} = \text{HQ Exp}_\text{month} \times 0.0007[/math]

  • [math]\text{HQ Exp}_\text{month}[/math] is the total HQ exp earned after 2200 JST on the last day of the previous month.

These points usually count for a majority of your rank points in a month. The most efficient way of earning points is through sorties. Expeditions and exercises do not provide enough HQ exp to rank.
