Ranked Battles


Ranked Battles Test Concept

During an active Ranked Battles Season, tankers compete to place in the highest possible "Division" and "League" before the Season ends (this test is not considered a Season).

While in Ranked Battles, a tanker's performance and battle outcome will earn points towards their ranking. Depending on the amount of points earned (or lost), one can move up or down through Divisions, and only up in Leagues.

Ranked Battles are only for solo tankers. If you're in a Platoon, you'll be asked to leave it before entered Ranked Battles.


Points, Leagues, Divisions and Scoring

Once in the mode, you must complete five preliminary battles to be placed in a League and Division. Once placed, you'll be able to see how many points you've earned or lost after each Ranked 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.

  • 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
  • League: A level where you can only move up based on total points earned within a single Season

Leagues:

• Iron League, Bronze League, Silver League, Gold League, Platinum League, Master League, Senior Master League, Chief Master League, Grand Master League

Scoring

  • Team Win/Loss: If your team wins, your team is awarded up to 50 points based on their rating verses the opposing team's ratings. The losing team will lose that number of points.
  • Personal Contributions: Your performance (measured by XP) can earn you up to 40 points based on the rating of your opponents. These points are additional "bonus" points and will not hurt your final score (In fact, you could potentially earn enough points to counteract your team's loss and bring the final score to 0). For the 2nd Ranked Battles Test, we've reduced the XP required to achieve the maximum points possible, thus allowing personal contributions to be more influential in the final point total.


How to Join

To enable Ranked Battles in the "Game Mode" screen, you must own at least one tier V vehicle.

For this test, all battles will also be tier V (this will vary in future Seasons).

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


Ranked Battles will be available once unlocking a tier V vehicle


Mode will display here if you already own a tier V vehicle
