Weekend Ranked is a weekly event that runs every Friday 5am PDT/4am PST – Monday 5am PDT/4am PST. It sees mortals from all around the globe enter the Arena to battle it out for glory and prizes. It’s an ongoing experiment, one that’s had a variety of iterations and will likely have more to come.
To enter, simply queue up in Ranked Constructed and play matches. There’s no need to sign up, as all mortals playing Gods Unchained across the weekend will be entered.
Prizes range from Core packs, which are traditionally earned by levelling up, to expansion packs, sold from the Gods Unchained store.
The prizes you win are based on three things:
- How many wins you earn in your first 25 games of each Weekend Ranked event.
- Your rank before each Weekend Ranked event begins.
- Whether you have a wallet linked to your account or not.
To qualify for prizes, you must reach a rank that corresponds with one of the tables in the Prize Tables section before Weekend Ranked kicks off. For wins to count, matches must be completed before the event’s end (Monday: 5am PDT/4am PST).
The current expansion packs being awarded come from the next expansion set. What is it? You’ll have to wait to find out…
Important: To receive expansion pack prizes, you must have a wallet linked to your account, otherwise prizes can’t be sent and are forfeited. A wallet is a secure place to store your digital assets. Don’t have a wallet? Create one. After this, link your wallet to Gods Unchained.
Final Trial of the Gods Weekend (March 19–22, 2021): As Trial of the Gods is close to selling out, the Weekend Ranked event of March 19–22 will be the final weekend of Trial of the Gods prizes.
From here on out, you’ll be receiving packs from the next expansion set. You’ll accumulate rewards from your Weekend Ranked wins as normal, only expansion set prizes will be distributed when the next expansion arrives.
There are 12 ranks in Weekend Constructed:
- Rusted Bronze
- Purified Bronze
- Rusted Iron
- Purified Iron
- Impact Meteorite
- Astral Meteorite
- Twilight Shadow
- Midnight Shadow
- Auric Gold
- Solar Gold
- Ethereal Diamond
How ranks work: Winning games will fill the bar on your ranked tab in the launcher. Losing games will damage your shield. When your shield has taken too much damage, you’ll lose a chunk of your ranked progress. If the bar empties, you’ll drop a rank. If you completely fill the bar, you’ll rise a rank. If you have filled up the bar beyond the white line, you’ll still lose a chunk of progress when your shield shatters, but you won’t drop a rank.

We have established an additional set of prizes for our most-dedicated, top-performing players. Players in the Mythic tier will be facing harder opponents than anyone else in the event. To compensate them for enduring the toughest challenge, we will award these additional prizes on top of whatever they earn for their total number of wins.
These prizes are only available to those in the Mythic tier, and are given in order of most wins earned out of the first 25 games played. Ties are broken by the player’s peak MMR during their first 25 games. It is possible for someone to finish in first place among Mythic tier but only end up with 18 wins, and not get the top prize on the main prize table. This extra prize list is to account for that; getting to the toughest opponents should give you the biggest prizes!
|Elite Prizes||Core Epic Pack||Core Legendary Pack||Expansion Epic Pack||Expansion Legendary Pack|
The ‘What a Mortal!’ prize
Striving to be the very best? Anyone who wins at least 30 games during the entire Weekend Ranked event will draw the cry of ‘What a Mortal!’ and earn a bonus prize. For now, the bonus prize will be an expansion Rare Card Pack, but will change when this set sells out.
The bonus prize is awarded for 30 wins overall and not just in your 25-game run, because it’s impossible to win 30 times in 25 games! For people that win half of their games, they’ll need to play 60 games or approximately 12 hours of gameplay to reach.
We publish the final results from each Weekend Ranked event to our Discord server (the place to be for all Gods Unchained and community updates) before Wednesday PDT each week. Core packs are usually distributed shortly after the announcement. Expansion sets can sometimes be delayed due to spiked gas prices.
Things can go wrong, and we reserve the right to pause, shorten, lengthen, and/or cancel Weekend Ranked events as necessary. We will add messaging to the launcher to let you f Weekend Ranked is canceled, but depending on the nature of the error we may not be able to. We suggest keeping an eye on Discord for all major status updates.
Go get ’em!
And that’s it! Dust off you best deck and head into the Arena, mortal. It’s time to show the world what you’re made of.
