Riot Games has put up a system to efficiently rank players while ensuring that a fun experience is implemented throughout the adrenaline-filled competitive play. The Wild Rift ranking system matches players with identical skill levels to play with and match against each other.
In this post, we’ll tackle how the Rank System works in League of Legends: Wild Rift.
What are the ranks in LoL: Wild Rift
The League of Legends: Wild Rift ranking system consists of ten tiers that each differentiate skill hierarchy. For newbie summoners, the Ranked PVP can be unlocked once they reach level 10. Just continue playing the game to access it. Players can also check their league standings in their profile. The ranks are listed below in ascending order.
From Iron to Diamond, the tiers are divided into four (4) divisions. Each one is represented by a Roman Numeral beginning with IV as the lowest and I being the highest. If you’re a LoL PC player, you’ll be familiar with these tiers except for Emerald. To determine their standing, Diamond, Master, Grand Master, and Challenger Ranks use Victory Points instead of Ranked Marks.
How does Ranked Games work in LoL: Wild Rift?
To begin, players must complete 10 Placement Games. A player will then be given a Rank after the first placement match. Players must play Ranked Games to climb to higher tiers. They can earn Ranked Marks by winning games and will need to obtain a specific amount of Ranked Marks to level up in each division. Players can also lose Ranked Marks when they lose a match. This applies to all players ranked in Emerald and below. Those under Iron to Bronze players are not affected by this Mark but if you’re on Silver to Emerald tiers, you lose one Mark for each defeat.
To move up to a higher tier, players will need a definite number of Marks. The requirement varies depending on tier — lower tiers need fewer marks while higher ones need more to step up the ladder.
|Rank Tier||Mark Requirement to Rank Up|
|Iron (IV, III, II, I)||Needs 2 Marks for each division|
|Bronze (IV, III, II, I)||Needs 3 Marks for each division|
|Silver (IV, III, II, I)||Needs 3 Marks for each division|
|Gold (IV, III, II, I)||Needs 4 Marks for each division|
|Platinum (IV, III, II, I)||Needs 4 Marks for each division|
|Emerald (IV, III, II, I)||Needs 5 Marks for each division|
Currently, Wild Rift Ranked Mode DOES NOT have bans. (Riot plans to add the ban system later as more unreleased Champions become available.) Also. only 1 ranked queue is available in Wild Rift (no solo and flex queue which is available in LoL).
Climb faster with Ranked Fortitude
Playing ranked games is a big challenge, especially in trying to earn wins as much as possible. Riot, therefore, introduced Ranked Fortitude as a way of rewarding Iron, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Emerald players who show consistent, impactful play.
How does Ranked Fortitude work?
Winning a game with Ranked Fortitude cap will reward a player with 2 Ranked Marks, instead of 1. Losing a game with half or full Ranked Fortitude will prevent a player from dropping Ranked Marks. Those under Diamond, Master, Grand Master, and Challenger Ranks use Victory Points instead of Ranked Marks.
How to earn Ranked Fortitude?
The specifics of how you earned your Fortitude Points are displayed at the end of each game. The Ranked Fortitude system is a bar located just below your current badge. Going on a winning streak, showing skilled plays, playing with an AFK teammate, or facing a particularly strong team will all net you more Points, while negative behavior will reduce them. What’s even better is that when you win a match with a full Fortitude bar, you will automatically gain two Ranked Marks.
Don’t worry, Ranked Marks do not decay if you go on a hiatus.
What about Victory Points?
For players who reached Diamond tier and above, the stakes are higher. A different system called Victory Points (VP) (similar to League Points or LP) applies to this high-level division.
Once a match is finished, Victory Points will be awarded or deducted based on the player’s performance. Primarily, the number of Victory Points a player gains or loses will depend on several factors including skill levels displayed during games.
Take note that unlike Ranked Marks, your Victory Points decay over time.
