We have met once again, Commanders,
The last season of Ranked Battles is upon us, and this is your last chance to obtain the new exclusive Tier IX German Medium Tank Kampfpanzer 50t. The road to the hall of fame will be hard: you will be facing stiff competition, many badly aimed shots and other sorts of unlucky accidents, but the main reward is far more than worth it! All hands to battle stations Commanders, this is the final battle!
The core gameplay in this Season will not change significantly compared to the previous season, but we’ve carefully analyzed your feedback and introduced some slight changes to make Ranked Battles even more enjoyable.
Role Experience: A New Vehicle Role
A small reminder: Role Experience has been introduced to Ranked Battles to refine the way you play with your favorite tanks. It’s earned after every battle according to your performance (such as damage and destroyed enemy vehicles) and your play style on the battlefield.
Previously, we introduced seven main vehicle roles in battle. In Season 2, we’re adding one more — Versatile Attack Vehicle. This category includes medium tanks with low mobility, but decent armor. They are particularly effective in close- and mid-range battles, providing great support for vehicles with the role of “Defender.” To earn as much Role XP as possible, Versatile Attack Vehicles must:
- Block damage
- Deal damage to vehicles within your view range
The following tanks can be considered the most typical representatives of the new Role XP category: Object 430U, E 50 Ausf. M, and M48A5 Patton.
One of the matchmaker’s primary goals is to get you into battles with comparable and competitive teams. To provide you with a more convenient gameplay environment, we’ve tweaked the matchmaker a bit so that wheeled vehicles are matched separately from tracked tanks. As a result, there will be noticeably fewer battles in which one team has a wheeled vehicle and the other doesn’t.
Reworking the mechanics of earning XP for the destruction of enemy vehicles
The amount of XP you get for destroyed vehicles will now depend on the total damage you deal to that enemy. You will only earn maximum XP if you’re the one who dealt all the damage to the destroyed tank.
Let’s talk about the most tantalizing topic — Annual Rewards! The more Tokens you collect in all three Seasons, the better the Annual Reward you will receive. Depending on your performance, you can get your hands on:
- Small Reward for 4 Rank Tokens: Contains Personal Reserves and a special Rank Classic, Variant 3 style.
- Standard Reward for 7 Rank Tokens: Contains the Innovative Loading System and a special Rank Classic, Variant 2 style.
- Advanced Reward for 10 Rank Tokens: Contains the unique Kampfpanzer 50 t, Innovative Loading System, Stabilizing Equipment System, and a special Rank Classic, Variant 1 style.
- Maximum Reward for 17 Rank Tokens. Contains the unique Kampfpanzer 50 t, Innovative Loading System, Stabilizing Equipment System, Venting System, and a special Rank Classic, Variant 1 style.
The Annual Reward you’re currently entitled to will be highlighted in your Garage, depending on the number of Rank Tokens you have earned over all three Seasons.
The most coveted trophy for every Commander is the German Kampfpanzer 50 t Tier IX medium tank. It’s a maneuverable vehicle with decent armor, great dynamics and a good combination of alpha damage and DPM. One of its most striking features is its extravagant design, unusual for German tanks. This is an absolute must-have for your tank collection that is sure to spark envy in other Commanders!
The “Maximum” reward also contains an exclusive 2D style Rank Classic. This will be automatically credited to you after event concludes.
Commanders, it will be hard to reach your main goal without breaking a sweat, but with effort anything is possible! Roll out and good luck in the battlefield.
