General Overview and Progression System

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.

Top 3 by XP earned 7 5
Top 7 by XP earned 5 3
No more than one SPG and two light tanks per team will be allowed in battles.

To move from one rank to another to qualify for Leagues, you need to earn 94 chevrons.

  • Division III
  • Division II
  • Division I

Chevrons will be credited according to the following rules:

Daily Missions for Different Vehicle Roles

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.

Role Experience has been introduced to Ranked Battles to refine the way you play your favorite vehicles. It is earned after every battle, according to your performance (damage, destroy enemies, help allies) and your conduct on the battlefield. Learn more about different vehicle roles and how to get as much Role XP as possible in the widget below.

  • Bonds
  • Days of WoT Premium Account
  • Gold
  • Directives
  • 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.

  • Qualification

500,000 Credits

Fuel Filter Replacement

Exhaust Insulation

Polished Lens


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 114 SP2: Meet the Chinese Predator!

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.

The parameters displayed are valid for the vehicle with each crew member trained to 100% major qualification level. Some vehicle characteristics can be further improved with the commander’s bonus to major qualification level, crew perks and skills, as well as special in-game items.

Display Your Mastery and Get Your Annual Reward!

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!

If you are a fan of heavies and enjoy aggressive gameplay, then the brand-new Charlemagne, a Tier VIII Premium British heavy tank, will become a valuable addition to your collection. This vehicle features solid frontal armor and great dynamics, so it can both support fellow heavies and push the enemy line with allied medium tanks. Its well-stabilized gun with –10 degrees of gun depression and a tough turret allow the Charlemagne to take full advantage of terrain on any map. Powerful and fast, this brawler is perfect for those who prefer to take the initiative on the field.

Get ready to fight hard and earn loads of sweet rewards in the updated Ranked Battles, Commanders!

  1. Shit bond shop update. Nothing worth to buy with credits, let alone with bonds. Welp, lets wait another year then…

  2. The thing I have to wonder about here is how many players who play ranked are actually prepared to beat in their skulls for a TD, let alone a Chinese TD.

    1. It’s a really good td tbf, like it’s an e4 but way better and way stealthily at the cost of armor. Not that the e4 has armor really, but we’ll ignore that it’s armor model is terrible for the sake of the conversation.

  3. Disappointing update to Bond Shop. Garbage and obsolete tanks added. Styles are a good idea, but only 4 out of a million in the game. So for the next 1+ year, we have nothing new or exciting in the Bond shop.
