Things are getting a lot more competitive around here.

Apex Legends

The battle royale shooter from EA and Respawn Entertainment, Apex Legends, is shaking things up big time for season 2 of the ongoing title. Not only are there going to be dinosaurs and a big shake up to the map, it will also be getting challenges that’ll keep players coming back. Another thing that they hope will rehook the hardcore? Ranked mode. Today, hot on the release of season 2, we get a breakdown of what that entails.

In a post on the game’s official Reddit, we got all the details about what Ranked Mode will be about. It will include leagues of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Apex Predator. Each league will have it’s own tier on a scale of IV-I, with I being the highest. Playing in ranked mode nets you RP for kills that you use to buy into the leagues and rank up. We’ll have a partial list of details on how the mode will work below, and you can see the full thing here.

Apex Legends is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Season 2 of the game is live now.

How It Works

We’ve been running simulations on the scoring system using actual player data from Season 1 to calibrate our approach to Ranked Leagues. Based on that data, here’s how our first Ranked Series will work:

SERIES AND RESETS

Ranked Leagues run in competitive periods that we’re calling “Series”. The first is scheduled to run for the duration of Season 2 (July through September). Future Ranked Series may not be in sync with the larger Apex Seasons as we may need more time for players to settle on their true skill level. We’ll talk about the Series cadence as we near the end of Season 2.

RANKS

Ranked Leagues features six competitive tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Apex Predator. All of the tiers except Apex Predator have four divisions; Gold IV, Gold III, Gold II, and Gold I, for example, with Gold I being the top division in Gold tier. All players will start in Bronze IV for the launch of Ranked Leagues, but future Series should have a starting placement if you’ve climbed the ladder in previous Series.

SCORING

Players climb the ladder using a set scoring system, and we’ve tried to keep the system transparent so you can focus on what it takes to rank up. Scores are tracked via Ranked Points (RP) and your score moves up and down throughout the season.

Each Ranked match will cost RP to play based on your tier:

  • Bronze matches are free

  • Silver matches cost 1RP

  • Gold matches cost 2RP

  • Platinum matches cost 3RP

  • Diamond matches cost 4RP

  • Apex Predator matches cost 5RP

During the match you earn RP based on performance. Kills are worth 1RP up to a maximum of 5RP per match. Placing Top 10 is worth 2RP, Top 5 is 4RP, Top 3 earns 7RP, and a win will bank 12RP. Each placement score is exclusive, so if you finish in the Top 5, you won’t earn 6RP for a Top 10 and Top 5 finish combined. That means the maximum score you can earn per match is 17RP, before the match entry fee.
