Apex Legends Confirms Big Changes Are Coming to Ranked Arenas – ComicBook.com

The most recent season of Apex Legends, “Emergence,” added Ranked Arenas to the mix after the previous season first added Arenas maps to the popular video game. Arenas maps are smaller than the traditional, huge battle royale maps that the base mode for Apex Legends includes, and it also changes up the loot and number of players, limiting it significantly and pitting three players versus another three. And, it would seem, big changes are on the horizon for Ranked Arenas specifically.

Apex Legends Senior Designer Robert West recently responded to criticism of Ranked Arenas over on Twitter with a thread of upcoming changes for the mode. “We have some matchmaking and AP improvements in the pipe and will of course keep updating as we go,” shared West. “I know of 1 bug at least that we’re investigating and will hopefully have a fix for soon.” You can check out the thread for yourself below:

According to West, there are some updates in the works that should overall make Ranked Arenas a much smoother experience for folks. That includes, but is not limited to, the ways in which AP and matchmaking ratings play together to determine teams. “Lower ranked teammates usually just means their MMR is close to yours but they haven’t grinded as much AP. This should also be better after the update,” West states in the thread.

Apex Legends‘ latest season, “Emergence,” is currently available in the game. The season brought with it the new Legend Seer among many other changes. Apex Legends itself is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. As of Season 9, the popular free-to-play video game appears to have dropped the number in favor of a name only with “Emergence” technically being Season 10.
