New Apex Legends Season 21 ranked system explained

Apex Legends Season 21 ranked

Apex Legends is starting Season 21 soon, and Respawn Entertainment is spicing things up with a revamped ranked system.

The EA-published battle royale game has been going strong since its release in 2019. Respawn Entertainment is constantly evolving the game to keep the player base engaged. Many gameplay, ranked, and reward changes come directly from player feedback, which is one of the reasons Apex Legends still attracts 300,000 gamers daily. The fast-paced gameplay of Apex Legends requires constant fine-tuning to keep the game running smoothly, and that applies to more than just the gameplay. Respawn is introducing a brand new system for ranked matchmaking in Season 21 with the aim of making better matches faster.

The new Apex Legends season aims to bring quite a few changes to the ranked system, how it works, and seasonal rank rewards.

Apex Legends Season 21 ranked changes

Apex Legends Season 21 ranked changes how ranks are carried over from season to season and tightens the spread in parties.

The most significant change is to queuing and matchmaking. Like in previous seasons, a group of players must be within three rank tiers to queue for a ranked match. This condition is meant to discourage rank carrying, where a higher-ranked player taking their lower-ranked friend to a higher ranking. By limiting the spread of ranks in a match, games will hopefully be more even and give any team a better chance to win.

Apex Legends Season 13

The rank of the previous season will determine the new seasonal ranking. If a player ends Season 20 at the rookie rank, they’ll be placed in 1 RP. If the player ranked better than rookie last season, they’ll have a place in bronze. Split timings have also changed this season. Split 2 will start with Split 1 after the patch is released. Previously, the second split would start a week after the update. Respawn will also continue cracking down on bad actors, hopefully preventing more high-profile hacking incidents.

Apex Legends Season 21 reward changes

Season 21 also shuffles how end-of-season rewards will work in Apex Legends. 

A player’s highest rank in Season 21 will determine their end-of-season rewards. Even if a player ranks down after reaching their peak, they’ll still get rewards for the highest rank. The change will aid in keeping ranked matches exciting and rewarding for players.

Players who surpass their Split 1 rank in Split 2 will get a special animation medal to signify their improvement. Players failing to do so will still receive the reward, but the medal will be the standard, unanimated version.
