Thanks to all the active Commanders who participated in Season X and shared their feedback, we are now ready to move forward with the new 10v10 format in the coming year.
The first Season of Ranked Battles 2021–2022 will run for two weeks: from September 6 through September 20. You can earn Battle Pass Points when fighting in Ranked Battles, and their number will depend on your position in your team’s post-battle ranking by XP earned. Even if your team lost or drew, you will still receive points.
|POSITION IN THE POST-BATTLE RANKING||VICTORY||DEFEAT/DRAW|
|Top 3 by XP earned||7||5|
|Top 7 by XP earned||5||3|
To move from one rank to another to qualify for Leagues, you need to earn 94 chevrons.
Chevrons will be credited according to the following rules:
As soon as you qualify for a League, you’ll be able to complete special daily missions. There will be three missions in total, and each one can be completed in vehicles of four different roles. This means that missions for 12 different vehicle roles will be available. These missions will reward you with bonds and Daily Bonus Battles.
The opening Season of Ranked Battles features tons of valuable rewards for good performance in battle. Meet your worthy Tier X opponents and fight to the last to earn:
- Days of WoT Premium Account
- Striking 2D custom looks
- Additional rewards!
Now, in the Qualification, you will be rewarded with directives and credits. We’ve also redistributed the prizes and increased the number of credits you can earn in the higher Divisions to make the game more enjoyable.
Season rewards also include an updated 2D style for Tier X vehicles, one for each League, which is exclusive to Ranked Battles. To retain this honorable style, you will need to participate in future Seasons. Plus, you will receive an exclusive badge for each League that you can apply as a mark of glory and mastery.
The ultimate reward for all three Seasons is the brand-new 114 SP2, a Tier X Chinese tank destroyer. It features a fully rotating turret mounted to the center of the hull, just like classic tanks. Thanks to this hallmark, you can play more actively and react quickly to changes in the combat situation.
The 114 SP2 also boasts excellent dynamics and can easily change flanks or retreat swiftly, if necessary. Its 152 mm gun with good elevation angles (–7° / +20°), high accuracy, and short aiming time allow you to effectively hit opponents from a long distance. The 114 SP2 sacrifices armor for greater mobility, but it can perform brilliantly as a menacing support vehicle or a dangerous long-range sniper.
Your Annual Reward will depend on the number of Rank Tokens you earn over all three Seasons of Ranked Battles 2021–2022. The more Rank Tokens you collect, the better the Annual Reward you receive. This year, among other prizes, you’ll have the opportunity to grab up to three pieces of improved equipment of your choice, from all equipment of this category, depending on your Annual Reward level. Each item can only be picked up once, so you better choose wisely!
Additionally, you can get your hands on:
Any remaining Rank Tokens will be converted into bonds at the end of the third Season.
Shortly before the start of Ranked Battles 2021–2022, on September 2, we’ll update the list of items available for bonds in the in-game Store. You’ll be able to exchange bonds for the various items below:
|ITEM||COST IN BONDS|
