Update 9.19: Common Test

Remember Ranked Battles that we talked about several weeks ago? Of course you do! The latest news is that we are happy how the mode and other improvements included in 9.19 performed in Supertest. So, now we’re inviting you all to get to grips with them and help us refine new features. We’ll keep an eye on your feedback as we continue working to polish and enhance the update before its launch.

Check out the Supertest summary for everything you need to know about 9.19, jump in and get hands-on with the new features and improvements. We look forward to seeing you on the battlefield!


We shortened the length of a season in Ranked Battles to test the mode properly with enough attention to every item on its timeline. Upon joining the Common Test, you’ll begin your way up the ladder at the third stage (out of four), and will each be credited 5,500 Bonds for the first two stages, which were cut for testing purposes. Simply launch the test game client to receive your first Bonds!
