The first season of ranked play is now live in Call of Duty: WWII, and now Sledgehammer has detailed exactly how each competitive ranked season will function.
According to this post on Sledgehammer’s website, ranked play in Call of Duty: WWII involves players competing in special 4v4 matches of existing game modes like Search & Destroy, Hardpoint, and Capture the Flag. Naturally, eSports competitive rules will be active during these matches, and players will earn ranking points for every match they win, allowing them to place in one of seven different rank tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Masters, and (for the top 100 point earners in the Masters tier) Pro.
Leaving or losing matches will cause a player to lose points, and leaving an in-progress match will also apply a stacking penalty which will prevent the leaving player from queuing up for additional ranked matches for a limited time. Once the first competitive season ends, players will earn specially themed helmets for use in multiplayer which will be tied to the ranked tier they reached. When exactly season one of ranked play will end hasn’t yet been announced.
