Every competitive game has a ladder system that determines the skill level of a player. From FPS to RTS to MOBA, any online game that requires some level of skill has a competitive ladder system nowadays, and League of Legends is no exception.
League of Legends has a competitive ladder system called ranked mode. By participating in the ranked mode and finishing placements, players are given a set rank based on the player’s skill level. Said player can then play more of the ranked mode to increase their rank by winning more games or get demoted by losing games.
The ranking system in the game is divided into Tiers and Divisions. There are ten tiers in the game, starting from the lowest Iron, then we have Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Emerald, Diamond, Master, Grandmaster, and finally, the highest rank tier in the game Challenger. There are also divisions that sit between tiers. For example, Silver has four divisions, from Silver 4 to Silver 1. A player must win ranked matches and gain LP or League to climb up the rank ladder.
Now that we have the basics of the League’s ranking system let us talk about the new Arena Ranks.
Arena is the newest League of Legends game mode that combines League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics elements. The mode forgoes the usual MOBA elements and puts the player into action. It’s a very fun game mode and has been very popular among players. In addition to being casual-friendly, it also has a competitive ladder and rank system.
In this article, we will look at Arenas’ ranking system and break it down.
Arena Ranks Explained
The ranking system in the Arena mode is heavily inspired by TFT’s Hyper Roll system. For anyone not well-versed in TFT, the Hyper Roll ranking system is very similar to Summoners Rift’s rank system. But there is no division system, and points replace LP. You get points by winning games, and getting enough points promotes you a tier.
There are currently five Tiers available currently. These are,
These ranked tiers are divided by LP, and you gain some when you win or place Top 2 in the match. On the other hand, being bottom 2 loses you LP. It’s a push and pull, and there are no promos for this system.
All players start at Wood Tier and keep climbing up. So get into the Arena game mode, try your best to win, and climb up ranks to reach Gladiator.
