Apex Legends Season 11 and the updates coming to its' ranked playlist are right around the corner. Players are incredibly excited for the new content and changes coming to the game in this new season. Many players had issues with Season 10 ranked play, and Apex has made some interesting changes to hopefully address some of those concerns. Here are the updates coming to ranked in Apex Legends Season 11

Apex Legends: Escape Season 11 Ranked Updates

1. Kill RP Update

When a player is killed/gets a kill, the rank disparity is taken into account when assigning points to the killer. The victim has no changes, but higher-ranked players farming those in lower tiers will receive less RP for their kills.

2. Kill RP Cap Changes

The way RP is being capped has been changed, with players now being able to max out kill RP at seven kills instead of six. The weight of different parts of the game (kills, placement, etc.) will be weighted differently depending on what rank the player is in and what ranks the player's kills come from. This won't change much as ranks don't differ too much in solo queue or playing with people of a similar rank, but a diamond playing with a bronze may experience changes. In order to max out RP, players must still place in first.

3. Ranked Arenas Changes

Ranked Arenas has seen some heavy changes as well. Firstly, the mode now operates in two splits just like the BR mode. This new mid-season split will require more placement matches and soft reset player MMR. However, the number of placements have been halved from 10 to 5. Matchmaking changes were also made to prevent players from being matched with teammates in very different ranks, as well as helping to dampen the penalty of MMR lost when having lower-ranked teammates.
