1. Get on the rankings? The wiki page here is confusing.
2. Find your place in the ranking?
You boost your ranking by selling your soul to Kancolle, literally. Some things, like clearing the EO maps will give you ranking points.
Some people clear all the EO maps + do a lot of extra grinding, to get their positions.
(Look at my server, Hashirajima, to see what some people actually do in one month lol)
There is a button for viewing your player page, which I think is the first button on the left of the menu, at the top of the main screen.
There is a button on that screen that will show the ranking list for your server.
1. Spend a lot of time playing the game. You get ranking points for each victory you get (S-ranks give more points than A-ranks and victories at Boss nodes give more points than normal nodes). Also, you can get ranking points from EO and from Bq2.
2 In the game, click the icon under your name and then click on the second icon on the left of the page and you will see your position (on the left) and your points (on the right).
If they came pre-upgraded that's strong hint that they'll become upgradeable. And if so, we could possible get them from convertion. The open questions are:
- how? Quest or Akashi?
- from what: Zuiun 634? Zuiun 12? Zuiun 634 skilled (this one unlikely, as it would be downgrade actually)?
Curiouser and curiouser.
Depends on how cut-throat your server is, really. For Iwagawa (somewhat middling) clearing all EOs and all seasonal quest and doing 5-4 about 3x a day should land you above 500 mark. Might require up to 5x a day on bad months but less on good ones (eg. when people are busy with events).
