Ranked Battles 2019 was originally planned to be launched this month. However, after numerous tests, we have determined that the current structure and mechanics of the system, combined with the density of planned in-game events, will not be optimal in terms of player experience for the Asia and NA server.
Therefore, in the best interests of our valued players, we have decided to cancel the launch of Ranked Battles in Asia and NA in order to focus on the modes of gameplay that will best suit your needs and expectations. Please rest assured that you won't be missing out on any of the potential rewards for Ranked Battles, as these will be suitably reallocated to other activities.
In the meantime, your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to bringing you many more engaging (and lucrative) events this year.
Stay tuned for updates, and see you on the battlefield!
