Chevrons

  • Places I–III on the winning team will earn 2 chevrons.
  • Places IV–X on the winning team (and whoever is place I on the losing team) will earn 1 chevron.
  • Places XI–XV on the winning team and places II–V on the losing team will retain a chevron.
  • Places VI–XV on the losing team will lose a chevron.
  • A draw is considered to be lost by both teams.
  • If several players earned the same amount of experience, all of them earn/retain a chevron (i.e. the players with the same amount of earned experience).
  • In case of extremely low battle performance (the amount of the earned experience is 0) a chevron will be lost irrespective of the battle outcome.

Ranks

  • 15 ordinary ranks are available.

  • Number of chevrons required per rank:
Ranks 1 2–4 5–6 7–9 10–11 12–14 15

Shields

  • If the current rank is shielded and the shield has sufficient durability, the player can retain the rank even when losing a chevron.
  • The shield durability is decreased after losing a chevron in a battle.
  • An earned chevron will completely restore the shield durability.
  • At rank 5, the shield will completely lose durability after three battles, in which the rank should have been lost.
  • At rank 10, the shield will completely lose durability after two battles, in which the rank should have been lost.
  • At rank 13, the shield will completely lose durability after one battle, in which the rank should have been lost.

Matchmaker

  • The matchmaker attempts to assemble the teams with the maximum difference of two ranks. If the conditions cannot be met, the rank threshold is extended.
  • Teams will always consist of an equal number of players of a particular rank.
  • When assembling the teams, the matchmaker does not consider the points.
  • If the matchmaker is unable to assemble the teams during 5 minutes, the battle will not be created and the players will be sent to the Garage.

Points

  • Each new rank earns 1 point.
  • Each new vehicle rank earns 1 point.
  • A point is received only for a new rank. If the same rank is achieved repeatedly, a point will not be received.

Vehicle rank points

  • Upon achieving rank 15, players are able to earn vehicle rank points.
  • Vehicle rank points are unlimited.
  • After earning a vehicle rank point, the chevron progress starts anew at the same rank.
  • Vehicle rank points are not bound to a particular vehicle; they are shared by all vehicles.
  • The number of chevrons between the vehicle rank points is five.

Season Leaders

  • Player’s position on the Season Leaders depends on the total number of points earned within a season.
  • If several players have the same number of points, other parameters are successively compared:
    • Ranked Battles Efficiency
    • Average damage in the mode
    • Average experience (considering the Premium Account)
    • Damage caused by player’s assistance
  • If all five parameters are equal, all players will belong to the league of the highest shared position.
  • The leaderboard of the Season Leaders will be available in the game client and on the portal on 19 February at 18:00 CET (UTC+1).
  • The leaderboard will be built if at least 10 players joined it.
  • The leaderboard will be updated daily.
  • To be placed on the leaderboard, 6 points should be earned points, earned within the season.
  • The Season Leaders will be divided into 4 groups:
    • League I: top 10% of players
    • League II: next 15% of players
    • League III: next 25% of players
    • Players, who are not among the Season Leaders.

  1. I do not understand why it is not possible to play in a platoon.
    I like playing with my friends so I do not take part in this kind of battles.
    In my opinion it is a big mistake by the WG

    1. because u get ranked according to your skill not according to your team play….it is no mistake…u want platoon play randoms….or your bonds appetite makes you wanna cry you can not get more with a platoon ? :P

    2. Are you stupid or just pretending?

      If platoons would be awailable, then playera from top clans would platoon up to have a better chance of winning. Just imagine what 3 pro league/gold league players can do, they would probably have a +75% win rate and never lose a chevron.

      1. It would be enough to improve the MM in order to distribute professional players on both teams.
        But i know that WG will never do this ……

    1. I have no control over ads man. And I doubt Seb has anything to do with it. Mainly due to it being a long article and wordpress likes to put as many ads as possible

  3. I wonder how many eligible players (i.e. players that have at least one Tier X in the garage) actually bother about Ranked battles. My guess is ~5 to 15%. I certainly don’t, for a whole number of reasons.
