The rank list is as follows:

Beginner
Kyu (9th to 1st)
Dans (1st to 5th)
Shihan
Expert
Master
Virtuoso
Champion
Legend
Sage
Warlord
Conquerer
Diety
Tekken Lord

...and this is how it works as compiled by WhiteDragon:


The basic points for each rank = 3 points.
If you fight someone who has the same rank as you, you get +1 for winning this match and -1 for losing this match.
If you fight someone who has one level lower or higher rank than you, you get +0.75 for winning this match and -0.75 for losing this match.
If you fight someone who has two levels lower/higher rank than you, you get +0.5 for winning this match and -0.5 for losing this match.
If you fight someone who has three levels lower/higher rank than you, you get +0.25 for winning this match and -0.25 for losing this match.
If you fight someone who has four or more levels lower/higher rank than you, you get 0 for winning/losing this match.

for example, if you are 4th dan now, after a match:
if your basic points =< 0 your'll be 3th dan.
if your basic points =>6 you'll be 5th dan.

In arcade, it is not possible to be promoted by the cpu past 1st Dan.

Yes, if there is a promotion chance that match, that means that the points are enough for a promotion.

You mean if a 1st dan challenged and beat a Shian player, the 1st dan-ranked player doesn't get any points. Am I getting this right?

It's very risky to fight someone you don't know and he has the same rank as you.

when you get promoted/demoted to a rank, you'll start at 3 points.

I don't really get it. I mean, to get your rank to climb more quickly you'd have to look for guys with the same rank as yours?

Shouldn't you get promoted more quickly if you play (and beat) higher-ranked players?

Well, you can try it on your PS2. I bet you'll spend 1-2 hours on the arcade mode and still don't see any sign of promotion chance. I remember I played law for 2 hours and his rank was still at 1st Dan. At that time I didn't know what's going on. I just believed that if I fight the higher rank, I'll get more points. when the three boxes appear in the screen I always choose the upper one. I was thinking WTF becuase I didn't lose any match in two hours. Later my friend told me the truth and I got promoted to 5th Dan just in a hour.

I was playing with Hwoarang recently and my rank was 4th dan...but I lost like three times in a row to Christie I believe -- and afterwards, I noticed I went down a rank, to 3rd dan! I think she might have been a 5th dan. That's the only time I've gotten demoted so far. Boy did I feel like a panzy after that...


This is a really great thread by the way.

yeah, I had the same thing today. I was fighting a Nina with my Legend King and I lost and got demoted to Champion. I was like: wtf! so I played like a beast and I finally got my stats back.

That's good to hear. At least you got your stats back. My Hwoarang is still at 2nd dan. It's my Devil Jin, Jin and Kazuya that seem to be climbing the ranks. Both of my Jin's are at 2nd dan right now.
