Ranked Climb In Apex Legends Ranked Arena Season 10
Players start their ranked journey playing 10 placement matches and then get assigned a rank. Arena Points are awarded based on rounds won. The bonus AP you get for wins will start dropping as your rank gets closer to your MMR. There is no demotion protection in Ranked Arenas but players will still get rewards after the season ends based on their highest tier reached.
Other features of the Ranked Arena system are:
Players will get rewards at the end of the season and their rank will be reset before the next season.
As of now Respawn will not be including splits for Ranked Arena as of now, but they haven’t ruled it out.
Players that abandon a ranked match will get a temporary matchmaking ban and unable queue for Ranked Arenas until the ban lifts.
If your teammate abandons the match, you receive loss forgiveness for that match.
Map Rotation in Ranked Arenas
The Emergence update has added new BR locations that will replace the ones the previous season.
King’s Canyon - Hillside
World’s Edge - Dome
Olympus - Oasis
Maps in Ranked Arenas will change once an hour, while unranked Arenas will continue to rotate every 15 minutes.
