We have received your feedback and concerns about the low availability times of the Ranked Battles mode. As a result, the Ranked Battles Prime-Time is going to be extended by two hours during weekdays.
New Prime-Time: everyday from 18:00 to 24:00 CEST (UTC +2).
Stage 1 ended and I was “removed” from the Season Leaders. Is this how it should be?
Yes, it is. The system works in the following way: with each new stage, a player needs to earn more Ranked Points to enter the Season Leaders:
- Stage 1: 2 points.
- Stage 2: 6 points.
- Stage 3: 10 points.
- Stage 4: 16 points.
If you haven’t earned the required number of Ranked Points by the start of a new stage, you are temporarily removed from the leaderboard. However, all earned Ranked Points are totalled by the end of the season.
How can I return to the Season Leaders?
To enter to the Season Leaders at Stage 1, you should earn at least 2 Ranked Points. Stage 2 has begun and to be among the Leader Seasons, a player should earn at least 6 points. Thus, if you have already joined the Season Leaders, you have at least 2 Ranked Points. Earn another 4 points and you will be on the leaderboard again.
Good. What is next?
Next comes Stage 3. Your rank progress will be reset again: to join the Season Leaders you will need to earn at least 10 Rank Points this time. When Stage 4 begins, everything starts anew, but this time you will have to earn at least 16 points.
Is it possible to stay on the leaderboard all the time?
Yes, it is possible. 16 points can be earned within Stage 1. To stay among the Season Leaders at all times, it is enough to earn the number of points that will be sufficient for the next stage. In other words, at least 6 points at Stage 1, 10 points at Stage 2, and 16 points at Stage 3.
However, do not forget about the Leagues.
Season Leaders are divided into four groups:
- League I: first 10% of players.
- League II: next 15% of players.
- League III: next 25% of players.
- Players who are not in any league.
So, if you want to stay among the Season Leaders and take the top leaderboard positions, it makes sense to earn as many Ranked Points as possible during each stage. The final goal of Ranked Battles is to eventually get into the top half of the Season Leaders and keep a position there until the end of the season.
Where can I track my progress?
Players can see their position and compare their progress with that of other players at any time, right in the game client. Remember: the more Ranked Points you earn, the higher your position.
