Last year, we launched Onslaught, our competitive mode with tons of new features and gameplay mechanics. It inherited the spirit of Ranked Battles and continues the tradition of fair and honest competition, where the strongest players fight on a level playing field.
We’ve already launched two seasons of Onslaught with loads of unique customizations and gameplay adjustments. We've been closely following the evolution and your perception of this mode, improving and refining its mechanics after each launch.
Currently, we’re working on the next Onslaught Season with qualification battles and other improvements, which will kick off in the fall of 2023. But while Onslaught and its features are evolving, Ranked Battles no longer syncs with our current competitive format.
With all of this in mind, we’ve decided to discontinue Ranked Battles with the release of the next update. The Ranked Battles Leaderboard (both on the website and in the game client) will become unavailable. Mode access points in the mode selector and all Ranked Battles interfaces will also be disabled.
Ranked Battles Store and Customizations
When the next update lands in World of Tanks, the Ranked Battles Store and all the exclusive items it contains will become unavailable. However, we’re currently thinking about how to integrate this with Onslaught so that you can still access it. We also want to provide you with a new discount system and make X 114 SP2 , a Tier X Chinese reward tank destroyer, available for purchase with bonds in the mode’s Store. We’ll share more details on the Ranked Battles Store transfer as soon as we can.
In the meantime, be sure to use your personal cumulative discount and get unique items while you can!
Ranked Battles Store and personal cumulative discount will become unavailable with the release of the next update.
The temporary seasonal rewards that you may have received for your League status—badges and customization items—will soon be removed and disappear with the release of the next update. The Performance Engraving for your Dog Tag and the Ranked Charge progressive decal customizations will remain yours permanently. Here’s what to expect:
|Customization Item||Date of Removal|
|2D styles for Tier X vehicles for Bronze, Silver, and Gold League||Release of the next update|
|Badge for Bronze, Silver, and Gold Leagues|
|Ranked Battles Champion stripe|
|Performance Engraving for your Dog Tag||
Will remain yours permanently and will display your progress in the 2021–2022 annual cycle
|Ranked Charge progressive decal||Will remain yours permanently and will display your progress at the time of the end of Season 3 of Ranked Battles 2021–2022|
|Legacy 2D styles for Bronze, Silver, and Gold Leagues as part of the Annual Reward||Will remain yours permanently|
Annual Reward and Rank Token Conversion Rate
Here’s a small reminder in case you haven’t grabbed your Annual Reward yet: You can still claim your Annual Reward before the next update lands! But be quick—time is running out!
Remember that you will have your choice of one, two, or three different items of Improved (bond) Equipment, depending on the number of Rank Tokens you’ve earned. To find out more details, check out our article on the closing of the third Season of Ranked Battles.
Player Support tickets regarding the positions on the Leaderboard and rewards will be accepted only within 30 days after the release of the next update.
We would like to thank all players who participated in this exciting and challenging mode. We really appreciate your time, passion, and dedication! We’ll focus on the further development of Onslaught, so stay tuned and good luck on the battlefield, Commanders!
