Ranked Leagues Information Screen

Ranked Leagues is a game mode introduced in Season 2.svg Season 2. It differs from the normal Play Apex game mode in that players are matched with other players of the same or adjacent tier.

The Ranked Leagues seasons coincide with the main seasons. At the end of a season, players receive a reward based on their rank.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Ranked matches play the same as the normal Play Apex with the only difference being the matchmaking and the awarding of Ranked Points (RP) after every match. In Ranked, players are matched with players of the same or similar tier with placement, kills, and assists giving away RP which is used to measure progress to the next tier. A set amount of RP is also deducted for each tier after Bronze.

Starting in Season 4.svg Season 4, Ranked Seasons are divided into "splits". Tiers reset after each split and your final ranked rewards are determined by the highest rank you reached on either split.

Prematurely leaving matches will net you a matchmaking penalty by applying a wait time before you can queue up again. See the section Abandon and Penalties for details.

Abandon and Penalties[edit | edit source]

Abandon is defined as "leaving the game before the match is over for you". This includes:

  • leaving during character selection.
  • leaving while you are alive, including drop.
  • leaving when knocked down.
  • leaving when a player is dead, but the banner is available for pickup and has not timed out (can still be respawned by teammates).
  • If a player's banner is picked up by teammates, and then the player quit within 2 minutes and 30 seconds of the pickup.
    • If they leave after 2 minutes and 30 seconds have passed since their Banner was picked up after dying, they will not be considered abandoning the game.
  • When disconnected due to either server issues or client end, failure to reconnect within 2 minutes.

As a reminder:

  • Even if you do not have a full team (either due to teammates disconnect/leave or failure to fill by matchmaking) or if one or both teammates go AFK, currently you will still get a penalty.
  • Players will be warned via the menus if their leaving may trigger abandon penalties; if the warning does not show up, players are free to leave, subject to the server's calculation.

In Ranked Leagues, these are the penalties:

  • A minimum of 10 minutes lockout from ALL modes, including Firing Range and Training.
  • Forfeiture of any ranked points earned, and a double subtraction of the entry cost. For example, an abandon in silver would yield -24RP (2x 12 RP entry cost), while doing so in gold will yield a penalty of -48RP.

Loss Forgiveness[edit | edit source]

Screen displayed when a player hits three used forgiveness abandons.

Loss Forgiveness is when all potential RP losses in a match are zeroed out when you happen to lose RP during the match. For example, in a Diamond match where you came in the last place but had two kills, you would normally have a -28 adjustment to your RP (-48 from the Diamond entry cost, +20 for kills, for a net loss of -28). With loss forgiveness, however, you would have a net loss adjusted to 0.

Loss Forgiveness is granted when:

  • your match-made teammate abandons the game.
    • If a party member leaves or goes AFK, you do not get loss forgiveness.
    • If a teammate leaves after banner timed out, or leave after 2 minutes and 30 seconds if banner picked up -- ie, they are not considered abandoning the game -- you do not get loss forgiveness.
  • you get to the start of the drop sequence and you don't have a full squad. If you leave before that, you get an abandon penalty.[note 1]
  • you have an unexpected quit once every 24 hours. If you exceed more than once per day three times during the season, you lose all forgiveness for the remainder of that season and all further unexpected quits will incur penalties.

Tiers[edit | edit source]

Players are divided into seven tiers, each with four divisions, except Master and Apex Predator where players are ranked globally via their current RP. The rankings are based on platform.

Players cannot rank down tiers, but they can rank down the divisions within those tiers. The exception is Apex Predator, since Apex Predator is defined as the top 750 Master players.

Tier RP Needed Entry Cost
Ranked Tier1 Bronze.png Bronze IV, III, II, I 0 300 600 900 Free
Ranked Tier2 Silver.png Silver IV, III, II, I 1200 1600 2000 2400 −12 RP
Ranked Tier3 Gold.png Gold IV, III, II, I 2800 3300 3800 4300 −24 RP
Ranked Tier4 Platinum.png Platinum IV, III, II, I 4800 5400 6000 6600 −36 RP
Ranked Tier5 Diamond.png Diamond IV, III, II, I 7200 7900 8600 9300 −48 RP
Ranked Tier6 Master.png Master 10,000 −60 RP
Ranked Tier7 Apex Predator.png Apex Predator Top 750 players

Progression[edit | edit source]

RP is given to players after each match currently based on two factors: Placement and HUDicon kills.png Kills / HUDicon assists.png Assists. The maximum number of kills/assists that can count for RP is 6.

Assists occur if the player damaged an enemy within 10 seconds of that enemy getting downed by someone else, and that enemy is eliminated. Crypto can also get assists by scanning enemies with his Surveillance Drone.png Surveillance Drone.

Ranked Placement Results[edit | edit source]

The following are the distributions for each season among all players who have played more than 5 hours of Ranked. The data from Season 4.svg Season 4 onward is only for Split 2, and may not be an accurate representation of Split 1. Apex Predator is included in Master, though before the introduction of the Master tier in Season 4, it was just Apex Predator.

History[edit | edit source]


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ranked series used to be numbered starting from 1. Since Ranked Leagues was introduced in Season 2.svg Season 2, this meant that each ranked series would be 1 number lower than the season number, causing some minor confusion. It was changed so that the numbers match the seasons starting with Season 6.svg Season 6.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. There is an exception to this: If player A joins the server, and player B joins player A's team, but before B finishes loading in player A disconnects. If player C then joins player B's team, from the server's perspective players B and C have had a full squad, thus player A leaving doesn't necessarily give them loss forgiveness, especially if A was a party mate of B.
