How to unlock ranked play?
Ranked play becomes accessible once you reached level 15. If you have already reached Prestige, this limitation does not apply to you.

How does it work?
The ranked games are divided between Seasons of two months each. A Season starts on the 1st of the month and ends two days before the end on the second month. At the beginning of each Season, you’ll play 10 placement matches to get assigned to a bracket, and if for instance you’ve played a match that ended 3-1, your MMR won’t update 4 times (3 victories and 1 defeat), but only once (1 victory). The rank of every player is reset at the beginning of every Season; nothing is granted forever. It will be up to you and your squad to improve your rank or remain at the top.

How does the progression work?
Players are divided into 6 brackets based on their Matchmaking Rating: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Elite.

Once you played the 10 placement matches of a Season, you’ll be assigned to one of these brackets. Afterward, based on your round win/lose count, you will go higher or lower in the brackets. 

Finally, the MMR of every player will slowly start to decay after two weeks of not playing in ranked mode, to make sure the bracket is still deserved. 

Where is my rank displayed?
The game displays the rank of a player with their nametags. You can see other players’ rank in the match lobby, on the tacmap, on the end-screen and in the sum-up of the match.

How does the matchmaking work?
Ranked is a new matchmaking mode, in which you’ll be able to play Elimination, Uplink, and Extraction.

Players will be able to select either Quickplay/Custom/Ranked from the main menu. 

What are the rewards?
Every completed ranked match will grant a bonus XP, every new bracket promotion will grant bonus Prestige credits.
At the end of a Season, players will earn XP boosters and Prestige credits based on their bracket.

What are the leave penalties?
If you leave an ongoing ranked game you will receive a strike, strikes will either disappear after a probation period or accumulate if you keep quitting ranked matches. If your strikes start to accumulate you will receive warning pop-ups before receiving a temporary ban penalty. Penalties will increase from 10 minutes to 4 hours. Also, please bear in mind that if you leave a match before it ends, you will still receive a defeat.
