Ranked Battles Weekend


What Are Ranked Battles?


Ranked Battles are your chance to compete against similar-skilled opponents in battle. During a Ranked Battles Season, tankers throw down to place in the highest possible "League" and "Division" before the Season ends!

One's performance in Ranked Battles earns points towards their ranking. Depending on points earned/lost, tankers can move up in Leagues only, and up or down in Divisions.

Note: Ranked Battles are only for solo tankers. You cannot join Ranked Battles if you're in a Platoon.


How to Participate in Ranked Battles


You can enter Ranked Battles in the "Game Mode" screen, but you must own at least one tier V vehicle (this can vary in the future) as all battles will be tier V.

After completing five preliminary battles, you'll be placed into a League and Division, and gain access to the "Ladder" tab in the Garage. The "Ladder" tab displays info about the current Season, your rankings, leaderboards, and other useful stats.


Ranked Battles Points, Leagues and Divisions


Once you're placed following the preliminary battles, you'll be able to see how many points you've earned or lost after each battle.

You can earn points to move up Leagues and Divisions by winning battles. You'll also earn additional points depending on how you placed within the team. Tankers who perform well and win will earn extra points, while those who perform well but lose won't lose as many points.


Stats in the "Ladder" tab

  • Division Rank: Your current position (highlighted in yellow above) on a Ladder within a Division in which you can go higher or lower based on your performance
  • Division: A Ladder within a League in which you can move up or down based on total points earned within a single Season. (There are five divisions, I-V, with I being the highest)
  • League: A level where you can only move up based on total points earned within a single Season


League Rewards


Depending on where you place at the Season's end, you'll score one of the payouts below (Note: Silver rewards not cumulative):

 Iron League: 0 Silver
 Bronze League: 10,000 Silver
 Silver League: 25,000 Silver
 Gold League: 50,000 Silver
 Platinum League: 100,000 Silver

 Master League: 250,000 Silver
 Senior Master League: 500,000 Silver
 Chief Master League: 750,000 Silver
 Grand Master League: 1,000,000 Silver
