Your rating is based on your wins and losses. Winning matches increases your rating and losing a match against an opponent will decrease your rating. The following table shows the titles associated with their ratings.
There are 7 possible classes you can belong to. You start at class F and then ascend up the ranks up to the highest rank – S. Your ranking goes up or down depending on your winning rate. You must play a game with a player of the same class as yours to participate in a class match.
