Ranked PVP has a set of more persistent elements involved, chiefly tied to the weekly events. It is worth noting that the difficulty settings of Normal, Hard and Warlord I-IV are ignored in Ranked (All Ranked PvP battles are played at the Normal difficulty), and the AI combo-breaker is disabled.
Each ranked PVP battle is worth PVP Points - winning invades and successfully defending will earn points, while losing invades and being invaded will lose points. Winning invades earns significantly more PvP Points than a defense battle. It is currently possible to win up to 50 PVP Points from a successful invade, depending on the difficulty of your opponent's team.
PVP Points earned change your position on the ranked ladder for that week.
Your placement on the ranked ladder determines what rewards you'll receive at the end of the week/event. As previously mentioned, your Rank is based on your PVP Point total for that week.
Weekly Reset and Rewards
After one week has passed by, the current event will end and rewards will be sent out to anyone who participated in that weeks Ranked PvP leaderboards. The leaderboard will be reset for the following week's event.
