We’re excited to announce that the Opening Season for Ranked Play in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare starts January 9th, 2015. In Ranked Play, players will be matched with similar skilled opponents and compete in 4 vs. 4 matches in game modes like Search & Destroy, Capture the Flag, Uplink, and Hardpoint with eSports settings enabled. Winning a match earns points towards being promoted into the next division. Losing a match, or forfeiting by leaving the game will result in a penalty by loss of points. You’ll have until January 31st to play matches and be promoted through divisions before this inaugural season ends.

Ranked Play features seven divisions: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Masters, and once players are in Masters, the top 100 players by division points will be counted as Grand Masters. Our team has created exclusive Divisional Gear for each Division Ranking that will be awarded at the end of each season for use throughout the next season in Ranked Play, Multiplayer, and Exo-Survival. To rise up in the ranks of each Division, players need to reach a total of 100 division points, and then a Division Promotion Challenge (best of three matches). Matchmaking takes into account if players are predicted to win or lose against opponents, and players will receive between 15 to 25 division points for a victory and lose 10 to 20 points for a defeat. Here’s the full list of rules and settings for Ranked Play in Advanced Warfare:
