Rank (Japanese: ウデマエ udemae) is a progress indicator in Splatoon alongside Level. Ranks originally went from C- to A+, and were extended to S and S+ with Version 2.0.0.[1]

The higher the player's rank, the more competitive their Ranked Battles are and the higher amount of cash they can earn from said battles.

Ranking

Players begin at rank C-. Winning in Ranked Battles grants Battle Points based on the player's current rank and what their odds of winning were. Getting 100 points or more in any rank will promote the player to the next one, starting them off at 30 points into the new rank. Conversely, dropping below (but not exactly to) 0 points on a rank will demote the player to the next one down. However, they only need 30 points to get back up, since they start at 70 after dropping a rank. Players cannot go below C-.

When the match ends, players recieve Coins.png cash depends on how much they gained from the objective from the scale of 0 to 500p, the victorious team earns the bonus of knockout or non-knockout. The higher you rank is the bigger your bonus of victory is. Once a team won by knockout, the losing team earns 0 cash upon defeat.

Normally, matches award a base amount of points per win and loss (±10 above B-). These numbers change depending on the average rank of each team in a match. A team with a higher average rank than their opponents will be given a smaller reward if they win and a larger punishment if they lose, and vice versa; a team with a lower average rank gets a larger reward for winning and a smaller punishment for losing. The values are ±10±2 or ±10±4 depending on the magnitude of the difference. For example, a team of 4 A+'s vs an A+ and 3 A-'s, or 4 B+s vs an A+ and 3 B+s, will receive scores of ±10±2.

When a team starts with three players or fewer and loses, they will each lose only 1 point.

Prior to Version 2.0.0, the maximum rank was A+ with 99 points, at which point the text would change from white to yellow. The update added S and S+ rank to the ranking system (though no S-). The current maximum is rank S+ with 99 points. S and S+ rank players cannot lose or gain points in Squad Battles. Upon getting to S+ with 99 points, the S+ turns yellow like A+ did before Version 2.0.0. The amount of Base Points and Base Penalty was adjusted in Version 2.2.0.

Prior to Version 2.6.0, players could battle against other rank players and get different amount of base points per win or base penalty per loss depends on the teams matchup. Latter to Version 2.6.0, It will now not be possible for the following ranks to be matched together:

  • S+ and S
  • S and A+
  • A- and B+
  • B- and C+

This allows the players to get much more accurate base points per win or base penalty per loss.
