Want to find out the best rat spots in Broken Moon so you can reach Master in Season 17? We’ve got you covered.

Like in the past, Apex Legends underwent several ground-breaking changes in Season 17. Besides the new Legend Ballistic, Respawn introduced a revamped Firing Range into the game. Moreover, the new Armory system with the weapons has given players more reasons to invest their time in the game this season.

However, the biggest change of Season 17 might’ve been the Ranked Changes. With 2 major goals in mind, Respawn made 4 fundamental changes to the game, including the introduction of hidden MMR, new scoring and bonus system, and provisional games.

However, Respawn’s plan to improve the Ranked system might’ve backfired as an unprecedented number of players have reached Master within a very short time. Following this, many players who wanted to reach Master started to grind the Ranked mode hoping to achieve one of the most prestigious titles of Apex Legends. Nonetheless, as getting to Master has become more accessible, it has also become slightly controversial.

However, that shouldn’t stop anyone from trying to reach the Master this season. The new rank system has made it easier for the players to reach the Master rank pretty easily. All you have to do is invest a little bit more time, have map knowledge, and know how the ranked system works in Season 17.

How Does Ranked System Work in Season 17

In Season 17, Respawn introduced a new scoring system replacing the previous Ranked Points (RP.) The reason behind this is that the total RP of a player never truly represented a player’s actual skill, as the RP can decrease due to missing one or two seasons of Ranked.

As a result, in Season 17, Respawn implemented a hidden Matchmaking Rating (MMR) that reflects a player’s actual skill. However, Respawn hasn’t revealed how they calculate the MMR, which is understandable.

Depending on the MMR, players will be placed in different lobbies, matching the skills of other players. However, like previously, there’ll inevitably be players of different skill-set. For that reason, a new scoring system was also introduced.

Before, whether you would climb up or down, the rank would be determined by your RP gain or loss. However, Respawn eliminated that system because it was full of flaws. Hence, the Ladder Points or LP system has emerged.

The LP includes placement points + Bonuses. The Placement points are pretty straightforward. Your placement out of the 20th determines it during a ranked match. You can get up to 200 LP through placement points in a single match. However, you cannot lose more than 35 LP in a single game, which counts as the entry cost.

Here is the detailed info on Placement and Ladder Points:

Fortunately, this season’s entry cost is much lower in higher ranks compared to previous seasons. Moreover, you get positive Ladder Points as you enter the 10th position. So, gaining LP has become easier than ever. You can do that just by ratting.

What is Ratting in Apex Legends?

If you’ve been playing Apex Legends for a while, you probably already know what ratting means. The term “rat” is usually used when you’re the last man alive on your team and trying to get as high of placement as possible by hiding in plain sight or the stupidest corner no one expects you to be.
