This time, we have an action-packed season of a short duration, with Ranked Battles unfolding in Domination mode on Tier VIII ships. If you missed the previous seasons of Ranked Sprint and want to know more about it, our article is designed to answer your questions.
What makes a Ranked Sprint different from regular seasons of Ranked Battles? An easier competition format and reduced duration. The Sprint lasts for 10 days only, and contains fewer ranks—half of them being irrevocable. It also takes fewer Stars to climb to the top ranks. Participation in the Ranked Sprint brings a lavish amount of signal flags; 500,000 credits—and 10,000 Coal for the Armory as a reward for attaining Rank 1.Starts: Wed. 02 Oct. 11:00 CEST (UTC+2)
Ends: Mon. 14 Oct. 10:30 CEST (UTC+2)
