PvP Leagues are seasons of structured PvP ranked arena competitions open to players of PvP rank 20 or greater.

Mechanics

Season

A ranked season either is a Conquest Season following the Conquest rule set, or a Deathmatch Mini-season following the Team Deathmatch rule set. Conquest seasons last for many weeks, while a Deathmatch mini-season is usually shorter and run after a Conquest season ends and before a new season starts. Any progression of applicable rewards from a previous season (conquest or deathmatch) is reset and not carried into a mini-season, but either season allows players to earn rating progress in each league, barring a soft reset to rating (see Divisions).

The date range of a season varies and may start or end in alignment to content patches or not. This is to reduce the gaps between seasons and may change depending on release schedule. [1][2]

A season's historical and current start and end dates are shown below and follow the dates either announced officially and/or as presented in-game.

Maps

Map selection depends on if the season is a Conquest season or a Deathmatch mini-season. More information on maps used can be found via Structured PvP Maps

Divisions

Divisions track progress made in leagues for each season. Based on your numerical Skill Rating, you are placed into a division. The divisions determine which badge is available on your nameplate, and even affect the rate at which you earn league rewards.

  • Every season will start with a soft reset of the previous season’s rating (Your initial rating before the new season's placements get calculated like this: (YourRating + 1200) * 0.5). To obtain your starting skill rating for the season, you must play 10 placement matches.
  • Inactive players will experience decay that lowers their skill rating over time up to a maximum amount. Decay can be worked off by playing league matches. Decay only matters for leaderboard purposes; it will not affect matchmaking. You will always be matched at your non-decayed rating.
  • There are no restrictions on backward progress with skill rating; you can move down in divisions by either losing matches or by being inactive. This will help ensure that players are always moving toward their correct rating and are facing players of similar skill levels.

Rewards

Rewards are gained from completing reward tracks. There are six different tracks with increasingly valuable rewards. The last track is repeatable. Each track consists of a number of tiers. To complete a tier, one needs to earn 20 to 30 pips depending on the track. Pips are earned by winning and losing matches and earning top stats. Winning a match will award 10 pips, losing a match will award 3 pips, and earning any amount of top stats will earn 1 pip. Losing a ranked match with a score equal to or greater than 80% of the winning team’s score will award a Near Victory bonus worth 2 pips. Being in the Platinum division will also award you with 2 extra pips after each game and being in the Legendary division will award you 4. This reward track resets once per season, unlike the weekly reset of the WvW equivalent.

Regular season

Regular seasons historically follow the Conquest ruleset.

Regular season leaderboard rewards

Ending a ranked season on the leaderboard unlocks a title and achievement depending on your rank. The number of required matches is dependent on the length of the season.

For example, a season running for 2 weeks will require a minimum of 30 matches, 3 weeks will require 45, 4 weeks will require 60, etc. Historically, for regular conquest seasons, a minimum of 120 matches played is required to be eligible for a place on the leaderboard at the end of the season.

Trivia

  • In Season 5, ArenaNet decreased the volatility during placement matches. [3]
  • In Season 9, players ranked Platinum 2 (1,600) and above could no longer duo-queue in Ranked matches while seasons are active. [4] However, this was reverted in Season 13. [5]
  • After Season 20, ArenaNet introduced mini-seasons with the Call to Glory February 2020 Competitive Update. During this time, a 2v2 Ranked Queue replaced the 5v5 Conquest Ranked Queue which was usually disabled between regular seasons.
  • The first 3v3 Ranked Queue (mini-season) only ran for 2 weeks as opposed to the normally expected 4 week mini-season. [6]. This happened again with 2v2 Season Two, suggesting that mini-seasons may have variable lengths.
  • 3v3 Season One and Conquest Season Twenty-Two were the first mini-season and regular season respectively without a formal news announcement. All previous seasons had a news announcement featured on the site's main page.
