This mode is currently only available from 8AM (GMT+8) to 2AM (GMT+8).
Ranked is the only mode where you can win trophies and be placed in a leaderboard. It is also connected to the Seasons feature as the leaderboard refreshes after each season.
When a season starts or when you start playing ranked, you will have to play a few placement matches before you start winning trophies and are introduced to the leaderboard. A
In Ranked mode, there's a division of players by Leagues with their own trophy requirement, rewards and leaderboard.
Not all maps are available in this mode and the matches are usually longer and have harder objectives.
The more you go up in the leagues, the harder it will become to maintain your trophy balance as you will win less and lose more from matches. This is reflects the level of play and mastery needed for each League.
You can check your trophy balance at any time under your avatar or in the ranked menu leaderboard.
At the end of the season, ranked rewards will be distributed and trophies will be squished down in preparation for the next one. Trophies from the previous Season will be reduced by 30% (if less than 2k) or down to a maximum of 2,000 trophies before the new Season starts.
These rewards are awarded at the end of a season according to how you placed in the rank. Te emote is permanent, however, the frame will refresh after the next season ends and according to how you placed in it (you will also receive a new emote if you ranked in a different league).
Season rewards can be won during a season by completing daily and weekly challenges. You can read all about them here.
