Removal of Ranked PvP

Sadly, the developers have made the decision to remove Ranked from the game. Instead, there are now separate 4v4 Arena and 8v8 Warzone queues.

4v4 Ranked was introduced in Game Update 2.4 and replaced 8v8 Ranked.


New Onderon Arena Map

There is a new Arena Map set on Onderon coming in Game Update 7.2. Here are some screenshots from the 7.2 Dev Stream.

PvP Seasons Rewards Track

The developers are adding a Seasonal PvP Rewards Track. This rewards track is progressed by earning points which you get from completing Matches and Seasons Objectives.

PvP Seasons Structure

Here is what the PvP Season Reward Track currently looks like on the Game Update 7.2 PTS. It takes 7000 Points to get to Level 25 and complete the Season. However, you are capped at 1,000 points a week. Each Season will last for 12 weeks.

PvP Scoreboard and Medal Changes

The medals and scoreboard has been updated.It appears most Medals are similar to how they are now. However, some values have been changed.

The scoreboard shows you Valor Ranking, Season Points, Credits and XP earned and is divided into multiple tabs.

  • Personal – this shows you detailed personal stats for the whole match as well as all the medals you earned.
  • Seasons – this tab shows your progress through the PvP Season Reward Track and Objectives.
  • Overall – shows the overall stats for everyone in the match including (you can sort by all these variables as well):
    • Medals
    • Damage
    • Healing
    • Protection
    • Damage Taken
    • Kills
  • Round 1, 2, 3 – shows stats per round (arenas only).

Here is a look at the new Scoreboard. Note, MVP Voting has been removed.

F2P restrictions have been removed from PvP. This means that all players regardless of if they are subscribed or not will be able to queue for as many matches as they like.

F2P and Preferred players will earn less progress on the PvP Seasonal Rewards Track.

Please note this section is all subject to change as some of the achievements have moved around to different categories a couple of times through different PTS cycles.

  1. So to get the coveted legacy title: “Cartel Combat Champion”

    you have to complete 25 weekly arenas!

    This should keep the casual regstars from getting that title. Will be the closest thing to a “ranked” exclusive reward this season. Hahaha thank you Swtor devs fair play!
