As we are at the tail end of season 11 of Apex Legends, Respawn has finally given us more information regarding the upcoming season 12 called “Defiance.”
Similar to every new season starting from season 2, Respawn has introduced new ranked rewards for competitive players to grind throughout the whole season. Since this battle royale game has multiple maps, the ranked portion of the battle royale mode is usually played on two completely different maps on two different splits.

This ranked split basically occurs in the middle of the season, and it resets some ranked progression. So, players can climb the ranked ladder on two different splits to collect additional rewards.
Season 11 Escape Ranked Updates:
In Apex Legends ranked mode, there are seven distinct ranks for players to climb. It starts from all the way back in bronze to Apex predator. Players need to spend RP(ranked points) to join a ranked lobby.
And players can collect RP by either getting kills or placing at the top ten list. To climb up the ranked ladder, players need to get more RP than they spent to join that particular match. After amassing enough RP, players then get promoted to the next rank.
After reaching the master rank, only the top 750 players on a server can hold the position of Apex predator, which is the highest rank on this battle royale game.
Season 12 Ranked Maps:
According to AlphaINTEL World’s Edge will not be in unranked map rotation. Additionally, Olympus, Storm Point, and Kings Canyon will be the maps in unranked matches.
Split 1: Olympus
Split 2: Kings Canyon starting in April.
World’s Edge will not be in season 12 of Apex Legends.
Apex Season 11 Ranked Patch Notes:
Max Kill KP:
175 → 125
Placement Points & Per Kill Bonus:
“This tuning is more punishing to teams that undervalue placements. We’re bumping up placement points for teams in the top 5; easing back on the ‘Kill KP Cap’ and adjusting ‘Per Kill Bonuses’ to require ~2-3 less Kills to hit the maximum.”
