Ranks

WCC utilizes a ranking system with requirements that must be roleplayed and fulfilled to rank up and participate in official battles. You must start as as the first rank: Kit. You then receive an Apprentice rank, then earn either their Warrior name or medicine cat name and rank depending on which path is laid out before you. Once you have received your full name, you become eligible to level up "Tiers" which increase your stats. The more you have been active and posting with a character, the higher the tier you can earn for them. Each rank and their tiers receive different Health Points (HP) and Stamina Points (SP). If your character holds disabled or disadvantaged stats, it will affect your HP and SP. See the note in the section below for further explanation.

Please know that these ranks do not reflect the in-character age of a cat; that is up to a roleplayer! The rank system aims solely to reward active characters with increased stats. Characters who have been in and survived more battles will have more experience than those who've been in none and their HP and SP will reflect their skill.

See the Battle System for information on HP/SP and other stats.


* Clan cats who are exiled from / leave a Clan will keep the stats they had while in the Clan (e.g. an exiled Tier 2 Warrior would still have the HP/SP of a Tier 2 Warrior even as a Rogue); they may rejoin a Clan without losing their rank OR earn rogue stats and privilege of ranking after fulfilling specific requirement listed below in the Ranking Requirements.

- Medicine Cats who transfer to warrior life must restart at Tier 1 Warrior rank (or Apprentice rank at Clan leader's discretion).

→ Rogues of any tier who join Clan life may do so with certain restrictions, determined by the leader (or coordinated with the rogue):
- Rogue rank must become either an Apprentice or Tier 1 Warrior depending on age. If the leader says the rogue must train as an apprentice, they must do so before they can rank to Tier 1.
- Tier 2 Rogues and Tier 3 Rogues will become either an Apprentice or a warrior. If they become a Warrior, they must start as a Tier 1 Warrior. If they are required to go through Apprentice training, then when it's time to receive their names a Tier 2 Rogue will start at Tier 2 Warrior and a Tier 3 Rogue will start at Tier 3 Warrior.

- If you become an Elder after reaching [Tier 5] Warrior or [Tier 4] Medicine Cat, you will retire with your current stats and you will not jump to the listed elder HP/SP. Special circumstances may be considered.

- If your character is disabled, they will face a permanent stat reduction of -5 HP / -30 SP. Your character would be considered disabled if they are deaf, blind, have missing/deformed limbs, etc. Being mute or having a missing tail do not count as being disabled.

-If your character is disadvantaged, they will face a temporary stat reduction of -5 HP / -30 SP. Disadvantaged stats are enforced when your character's Clan or group do not hold a disputed territory. Otherwise, disadvantaged stats can be applied for whatever in-character reasons the roleplayer chooses.

- If your character is both disabled and disadvantaged, they will face a stat reduction of -5 HP / -40 SP while they are disadvantaged.






Ranking Requirements

Rank requirements are a combination of time a user must wait before obtaining the next rank or tier and specific types of in-character development topics. Each rank may have slightly different wait times and/or required topics that must be fulfilled before work can begin on the next one. At the end is the list of topics that count towards character development requirements. You can also find all of these requirements listed under the Ceremonies board in each Clan.

The wait times are included so that a character cannot go from a Kit to a Tier 3 Warrior over the course of a month. Experience comes over time, and we wish to encourage in-character development whenever possible. The real-life time requirement doesn't have an impact on your cat's in-character age.

Put your rank in the Clan/Rank section of your profile or in your signature so everybody can see it and know your HP/SP. Every Clan has an official Ranks tracker for you to utilize in their Clan Information board. Staff will reference this official list for large-scale battles and use the stats listed there for each participant, so please remember to post there so that your leader can keep your character's rank updated.

If your character goes from a medicine cat to a warrior or a warrior to a medicine cat, they must restart with the first tier of requirements for their new rank. Switching Clans does not undo your tier progress. An exiled Clan cat may keep their tier requirement progress upon joining a new Clan if the new leader allows it.

→ Complete one development topic

[Tier 3] Rogue -> [Tier 4] Rogue; 2 months since last rank up
→ Fight against two enemies using the Battle System
→ Complete two hunts using the Hunting System
→ Complete four development topics
→ Fight and defeat a Tier Four or Five Warrior (may include leaders and deputies)


Most Higher Ranks do not have requirements the same way that warriors do; they can be found here.

A single topic can fulfill both the hunting and battle requirement so long as it uses the Hunting and Battle Systems in separate posts.
*Hunts must be completed using the Hunting (or Herb Hunting) System or they do not count; this can be a solo thread or include others; you do not need to successfully catch prey or find herbs, but your topic must reflect at least one dice roll.
**Fights must be fought using the Battle System, and can be against an enemy cat, predator, or clanmate. A predator may be rolled or forced into an encounter. Sparring does count.
***The apprentice does not need to be assigned and trained within the indicated tier; any apprentice you lead the patrol topics with counts. Roleplayers may not mentor their own character. This is to encourage members to interact with each other; it especially benefits newer players who could use an active, experience roleplayer to help them learn.
**** This ranking is only for clan cats who are exiled or leave the clans willingly. They have the chance to change their clan cat to become a rogue and rank up properly from that point (as they were default rogues). Warriors may only access to this privilege after three months while kits and apprentice can do it after two weeks (all must complete their requirements)
*****Can be accomplished using the Healing System or in-character role-play development




Possible Development Topics (Warriors)

You may only fill one development requirement per thread (e.g. you can't use the same thread to fulfill the interact with a Clanmate and spar with a Clanmate prompts). You may not fulfill the same type of development topic multiple times in the same Tier.

Medicine Cat Classes:

Classic MC:
Kit -> MCA -> MC:
→ Very little combat abilities as they were never trained in battle. Because of this, however, they have access to a special healing move that no other Class can use (Natural Talent).
→ They would start with basic apprentice stats and moves and do not have access to Clan moves.

Hybrid MC:
Kit -> Apprentice -> MCA -> MC:
→ Trained in battle and have minimal battle skills. They are significantly stronger in battle than kits who became MCAs, and therefore have higher stats and access to stronger moves.
→ They would use T1 Warrior stats and moves and do have access to Clan moves.

Battle-Trained MC:
Kit -> Apprentice -> Warrior -> MCA -> MC:
→ Highly trained in combat and know how to maneuver in a battle. They know all the moves needed to be successful in battle and have access to a special battle move as a result of their diverse training (Soft Spot).
→ They would use the Warrior stats and damage from the tier they were at when they became an MC and would have access to Clan moves.



-Medicine Cat Class: HP/SP-

Classic Medicine Cat Apprentice: 15 HP / 40 SP
[Classic] Medicine Cat: 25 HP / 60 SP

- Warriors who transfer to Medicine Cat life must restart at Medicine Cat Apprentice rank. The former warrior may keep their full name or change it; however, they must fulfill the Medicine Cat Apprentice requirements before they are considered a fully named Medicine Cat and can begin work on Tier 1 requirements. They will keep the stats of the warrior tier they were previously at.
