Ranked is a system in Paladins designed to provide higher quality matches for competitive players. The current season of competitive play is Season 1, that began with the release of Paladins Beta Version 0.56.2014 on August 9, 2017.
Description[edit | edit source]
Welcome to the new Competitive Paladins. Paladins' in-game competitive mode will now allow players to progress as an account through each tier from Bronze to Grandmaster. As you play, you'll gain Triumph Points (or TP) and once you pass 100 TP in your current division you are immediately promoted to the next division! If you are performing exceptionally in your current division, you may skip forward a few divisions when you are promoted.
Now is a great time to get back into ranked play! With the start of this split players will have any previous ranking hard reset. This will allow all players to start on an equal playing field with everyone else. Let the race to Grandmaster begin!
Ranked tiers and divisions[edit | edit source]
Tiers[edit | edit source]
Ranked has several tiers that players can be placed in, from Bronze to Grandmaster. Players without a tier will be set as Qualifying. Winning games will grant Triumph Points (TP). Earning 100 TP while on the last division of a tier will ascend the player into the next tier.
Divisions[edit | edit source]
Each tier is divided in 5 divisions. Earning 100 TP will cause the player to be promoted to the next division.
