Apex Legends Pro Albralelie explains why the ranked overhaul is healthier for the game

Apex Legends Pro Mac “Albralelie” Beckwith offered a harsh take on the previous state of Apex Legends’ ranking system, explaining that the recent overhaul has given players some house truths.

The ranked portion of Apex Legends has always been the preferred mode for players who want to test their skills and compete with some of the best in the world. However, the previous system drew a lot of criticism due to players being able to climb the leaderboards and then secure the top spots.

That has since changed with the release of Apex Legends Season 13, as Respawn completely overhauled the ranking system. The changes have proved quite popular with players, although some complaints remain.

For TSM’s Albralelie, he believes the new system is good for the game since the previous iteration was like a “participation trophy” where players get to the top pretty easily.

Ranked Reloaded introduced a number of highly requested changes to the competitive mode.

Addressing the new system during a stream, the Apex Legends star said players didn’t “get any worse” in the game, but they were “misled” by the previous leaderboard setup into believing that they could be better than they are.

“The system allows you to actually improve as you level up, not just ‘I’m going to play and I’m going to rank up,'” he said, noting that some players may have previously been Diamond or higher but are now more in the silver and gold regions of the leaderboard due to the changes.

“Don’t let that get you down because you’re like, ‘Man, I was champion last season, now I’m stuck in gold, screw this game.’ No, that’s not the way of thinking. It’s like, damn man, that shows me how bad the ranking system really was.

Albralelie also followed up with a lengthy comment on Reddit addressing his own thoughts. “The general point I wanted to make was not to get discouraged by this new ranking system, because it’s one that will actively make you a better player,” he said added.

He also claimed that matchmaking for gold and platinum players is “horrendous” at the moment as they are regularly compared to Apex Predator lobbies. “It’s no fun for you guys to fight us and vice versa, you get negative RP and we don’t get rewarded either, it’s a lose/lose.”

Albralelie added some additional thoughts on the ranked play changes.

As for the matchmaking issues, Respawn has previously stated that the mixed lobbies are “entirely intentional” but should only happen at times when it’s difficult to populate the lobby.

As we move forward, Ranked may see some more adjustments to address some of the lingering complaints from players, but with Albralelie’s direct approach to things, many are on board.
