We’ve got a short but sweet Community Pit Stop for you today!
We’re focusing solely on some improvements we have made to the Ranked Multiplayer progression/score system. We saw the feedback from the Community that it was frustrating at times to progress up the leagues and we have made some adjustments to address this as much as possible.
These changes will come into effect later this week.
Before diving into the changes, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind players that the CPU Racers are completely excluded when calculating the score distribution at the end of races in Ranked or Regulated Multiplayer. CPU Racers are indicated by an Arbee icon next to their in-game username.
MORE GENEROUS SYSTEM OVERALL
Players will now earn more score points per race on average across all leagues. We have increased the number of points earned for performing well while simultaneously reducing the number of score points lost when finishing in lower positions. Losing score points when finishing in lower positions has been completely removed from the lower leagues as detailed below.
BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD LEAGUES
Players will no longer lose any score points in the Bronze, Silver & Gold leagues, regardless of which position they finish in. As long as you complete the race, you will receive some score points to help you progress more easily in the lower leagues. This change will allow players to reach the Platinum league, easier and faster.
PLATINUM LEAGUE & ABOVE.
Starting in Platinum league and above, players will still lose score points for finishing in lower positions, but the amount lost has been reduced. The number of score points you earn for finishing in higher positions has also been increased, particularly in the highest leagues.
It gets progressively more challenging as you progress through the higher leagues, but you should see a significant improvement in your progress speed if you maintain a positive win ratio.
That’s everything in this edition of the Community Pit Stop! These changes should result in less twists and turns on the road to Ultimate Champion so hop back into Ranked Multiplayer to claim those bragging rights!
