Ranked Battles: Tier VIII

What Are Ranked Battles?

Ranked Battles are an opportunity to demonstrate your tactics against opponents. During a Season, tankers hone their skills by trying to place in the highest League before the Season ends for bragging rights and rewards!

One's performance in Ranked Battles earns points towards their ranking, and moving up Leagues is dependent on the amount of points earned.

NEW: League Based Matchmaking

For the upcoming Ranked Battle Season, we have added League based Matchmaking! Matchmaker will first attempt to match players in the same league together, followed by surrounding leagues, and finally with any league based on how long the player has been waiting in the queue.  

  • Same league matchmaking expires after 45 seconds
  • Surrounding league matchmaking expires after 90 seconds
  • Match with any league after 90 seconds

How to Participate

To participate and unlock the mode, you must own a tier III vehicle or higher.

Once unlocked, you'll need to complete five preliminary battles to be placed into a League. Once placed, you'll gain access to the "Ladder" tab in the Garage which displays useful information about the current Season, your rankings and more.

You'll also gain access to three Leaderboards:

  • My Division: Displays all players that are in the same League as you.
  • Friends: Displays your friends' rankings; every friend who's participating in active Leagues.
  • Clans (Not available if you're not in a Clan): Displays your Clanmates who are participating in an active League.

Point System

Once you've placed in a League, you'll begin to see how many points you've earned or lost after each Ranked Battle.

There are two types of points: Team Performance and Personal Performance. To earn Team Performance points, players must win the battle. The player's individual Personal Performance points can then increase for winning the battle or decrease if you lost. Personal Performance points are based on how well you did in battle.

The amount of points earned or lost is displayed in the Post Battle Results screen. First, it will calculate the points received for your individual performance, and then the points from your team's performance. Then it displays your current amount of points and how much more is needed to reach the next League.

End of Season

You'll also still be able to enter the Ranked Battle mode to view the "Ladder" tab after the Season is over. This is useful in case you want to check the Leaderboard to see where you finished amongst players in your League, your friends and Clan (if you're in one).

You'll also receive an in-game medal based on the highest League achieved.
