Ranked Battles, a highly competitive mode in which the strongest players fight on a level playing field, is making its return to World of Tanks with three new Seasons. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve reworked the progression system and introduced several other changes that we’ll now discuss in greater detail.
This time, the ultimate reward for all three Seasons is the brand-new Concept 1B Tier IX American heavy tank, which is exclusive to Ranked Battles. Prove your worth over three Seasons to add this formidable brawler to your Garage!
July 13, 2020, 08:00 UTC through August 3, 2020, 08:00 UTC
Weekdays: 13:00 UTC – 01:00 UTC (201 server)
Weekends: 09:00 UTC – 01:00 UTC (201 server)
For the first Season of Ranked Battles 2020-2021, the progression system will be simpler and more achievable. The number of ranks in all Divisions will be reduced from 15 to 10. The number of chevrons you need to earn to move from one rank to another will also be reduced. This will make progressing in the mode simpler, quicker, and more achievable.
The following Ranks are permanent:
- Fourth and seventh ranks in the Third Division
- Fifth rank in the Second and First Divisions
The eighth rank in the First and Second Divisions will receive Rank Shield status.
These changes will help you reach Leagues faster so you can showcase your mastery.
To boost your progress in the mode and shorten your journey through the ranks, take advantage of Bonus Battles that double the number of chevrons you earn in battle. This Season, we’re also introducing Daily Bonus Battles, which will be available only when you reach Leagues.
Daily Bonus Battles are just like regular Bonus Battles, but they are automatically applied once a day for each Tier X vehicle. If you don’t receive a chevron after a battle, then the Daily Bonus Battle won’t be spent.
There are two ways to get Daily Bonus Battles:
- They are credited daily when you qualify for a League. The number credited depends on your Qualification results.
- Complete the special daily missions listed below.
This Season, daily battle missions for different vehicle roles will become available as soon as you qualify for a League. In total, there are three missions, and their conditions will reset daily. Feel free to complete them at your convenience. These special missions will reward you with bonds and Daily Bonus Battles.

During the second Season of Ranked Battles 2020–2021, we’ll introduce a special dynamic leaderboard featuring the names of the top players. This ranking will be determined by your highest battle effectiveness and best performance over all three Seasons (including the results of the first Season). Only the top 200 players will be ranked on the leaderboard, so do your best to show the world your mastery!
You can quickly access the leaderboard via a special 3D object in the Garage. During the active phase of the Season, its appearance will change, and the object will serve as a quick access point to the mode.
As we announced previously, only players in researchable and Collectors’ vehicles will be able to participate in Ranked Battles 2020–2021. We’re taking this step to create equal conditions for all players in order to maintain the fair and competitive spirit of this mode.
Season rewards include a unique 2D style for Tier X vehicles, one for each League. In order to retain this style, you will need to participate in future Ranked Battles Seasons. Plus, you will receive an exclusive badge for each League that you can apply as a mark of glory.
|Bronze League||Silver League||Golden League|

Any remaining Rank Tokens will be converted to bonds at the end of Season 3.
