Lemnis Gate is just a week away from releasing, after it was delayed from its original release a week after the beta. New information about the game’s cosmetics, operatives, and maps have been revealed. But now details about one of the most appealing parts of Lemnis Gate, ranked play, has been revealed.
In Lemnis Gate players can engage in competitive (Ranked) matches to climb the game’s ranking system. Ranked Mode is the place to be for those of you with a competitive streak. In Ranked Mode you’ll be able to compete against other players with the goal of raising your rank and getting the top position on the leaderboards. There’s also the added bonus of bragging rights for reaching the top.
Lemnis Gate ranked system
The ranking system is quite simple. There are five ranks, and within each rank are tiers. The five ranks are:
Each rank has five tiers, ranging from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. So in order to climb into the next rank, you will need to reach tier 5 for the previous rank.
Obviously, in order to raise your rank, you will need to queue up in Ranked matches. Queuing up in normal matches offers a more casual experience that will not affect your ranking.
Ranking up is pretty clear cut: win games in Ranked matches. In order to advance a tier (or rank if you’re already in tier 5), you will need to win a totally of six wins.
Each win grants the player a node, while a loss takes a node away. 6 nodes will have your progress in rank.
However, when ranking up a tier or rank, you will start off with 2 nodes for that new rank. This acts as a buffer so that you don’t immediately get demotes after losing a match as soon as you reach your new rank. You are essentially given 2 free losses without ranking down.
All Game Modes (Domination, Seek & Destroy, Retrieve XM, and Deathmatch) and Game Types (1V1 Turn-Based, 1V1 Simultaneous, 2V2 Turn-Based, 2V2 Teammates Play Together, 2V2 Enemies Play Together, and 2V2 Simultaneous) are available to be played in a Ranked environment.
To prevent farming ranks or match fixing, there are two limitations:
A party of 2 cannot play 1v1 Ranked matches.
A party of 3 or more can’t play any Ranked matches.
It’ll be interesting to see how Ranked matches will look and what strategies will be developed when Lemnis Gate launches. After all, Lemnis Gate is one of the most unique first person shooters right now.
A gameplay trailer has been released that perfectly shows the game’s unique time loop gameplay for those still unaware of how the game works.
