Ranked Battles 2020–2021 is Here!

Are you ready to meet your worthy opponents in Tier X vehicles, Commanders?

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!

Revamped Progression System

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 First and Second 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.

Bonus Battles and Daily Bonus Battles

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.

Daily Bonus Battles are spent before regular Bonus Battles and they don’t carry over to the next day. For maximum battle efficiency, be sure to use them before they disappear!

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.

Daily Battle Missions in Leagues

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, each of which you will be able to complete once a day. Feel free to complete them at your convenience. These special missions will reward you with bonds and Daily Bonus Battles.

Vehicle Restrictions in Ranked Battles 2020–2021

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.

Below is a list of tanks whose participation in the upcoming three Seasons of Ranked Battles will not be permitted.

Let’s Talk Rewards!

These are the rewards for good performance in combat! You have the opportunity to earn:

  • Credits

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.


Your Annual Reward still depends on the number of Rank Tokens you earn over all three Seasons of Ranked Battles 2020–2021. The more Rank Tokens you collect, the better the Annual Reward you receive. Depending on your performance, you can get your hands on:

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 50 players will be ranked on the leaderboard, so do your best to show the world your skills!

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. Take a look!
