Season 6 Recaps and Results
Ranked Goals for Season 6:
- Create a true measure of skill in Apex Legends
As of 10/21/2020, we have the following distribution among players in Split 2 who played more than 5 hours of Ranked (versus Season 5):
- 17.76% Bronze (16.21%)
- 26.23% Silver (22.83%)
- 36.25% Gold (33.7%)
- 17.75% Platinum (18.21%)
- 1.89% Diamond (2.51%)
- 0.12% Master & Apex Predator (0.2%)
This shows that Diamond and higher ranks have returned to the same distribution as Season 4, after seeing a slight inflation during Season 5. Additionally, the popularity of ranked continues to grow. Ranked matches are taking between 25% and 45% of all games played depending on time of day, region, limited time mode availability, and time since the last reset.
- Reward competitive players for the time they invest in Apex Legends
Dive Trails continue to be a highly sought-after cosmetic item that allow players at the top to visually distinguish themselves. As usual Trails from a previous Ranked Season will expire, but if you missed the chance to earn the Season 6 Trail, fear not, as Respawn plans to let players have a chance to earn it again in Season 10.
- Ensure competitive integrity through skill-based matchmaking
While Respawn is still considering changes to the RP and matchmaking systems, their focus on crossplay this past season means we’ll need to wait a bit longer to test out any new features for ranked.
- Let top-tier Apex Legends players compete at the highest levels of skill
Master Tier and Apex Predator tiers continue to display the most consistently successful players in the world.
Season 6: Rewards
Here’s a preview of the Season 6 ranked rewards you’ll be earning when the Season changes.
Season 7 Ranked Reset And Split Dates
Since this season brings a new map to the games, we’ll be starting with Olympus November 4, then moving to World’s Edge in the second split, with the planned split reset on December 15, 2020. King’s Canyon will sit this season out for ranked play but will return in a later season!
Ranked Leagues and Crossplay
Now that crossplay is launched, console players that are opted in to crossplay will matchmake against all other console players. Everyone in the pool is still sorted by total RP count as usual. This increased player population should help keep matchmaking times short.
For Master and Apex Predator players, playing Ranked matches will earn you RP for your current platform, e.g. if you are a PS4 Apex Predator playing with PC friends, the RP you score count toward your rank only on PS4, even though there are PC players in the matches with you.
