Sledgehammer Games has shared some new details as we approach the start of Season 1 of Ranked Play in Call of Duty: WWII. It will begin at 10AM PT on December 1 on PS4 and Xbox One.

Ranked Play is a competitive based mode, where the Call of Duty esports (CWL V1) rule set is active. The mode is 4v4. Season 1 is the placement season. You can play through matches and get promoted to the different tiers in Ranked to be placed into Season 2.

There are 7 tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Masters. Once you reach Masters, if you are in the top 100, you will receive a special Pro status. Alongside this, SHG has stated there will be special helmets given out for placing in certain tiers are the end of a season.

Ranked Play will feature a penalty of a limited time ban from playing in Ranked Play for leaving games:

  • 1st offense: 15 minutes
  • 2nd offense: 30 minutes
  • 3rd offense: 45 minutes

Season 1 is a placement season, so that the game can set your MMR rank for Season 2 and beyond.

SHG has stated party functionality is disabled in Ranked Play at the start. It will be enabled shorty.

The Placement Season that starts tomorrow is important to establish players’ MMR-based starting tier for Call of Duty: WWII Seasons 2 and beyond. It also gives us the opportunity to ensure that all Ranked Play functionality is solid and delivers the best experience for players. Please note: Initially, party functionality will not be available at the start of Season 1. While the Placement Season is crucial to building our individual MMR player database, we will be enabling parties in Ranked Play soon.


  • Wow..

    Forget Ranked Play, just go play Hardpoint it’s like a CWL match everytime in there lol.

    • This is why I avoid hardpoint lol. I tried looking for a game in there a week ago, each game I joined, my team was getting fucked and I was like “nah, I ain’t doing this” and just never looked back lol

        It’s a struggle out there in Hardpoint man, for sure. Sometimes I’ll join games where my team is literally getting destroyed. Like the enemy team will have over 170 score while my team will be sitting at 30 or 50. Super annoying. I used to be a Kill Confirmed player straight up but 50 points a kill and 75 for the confirm (I think that’s the correct point values) turned me off.

        • That’s why I also stopped playing Domination in this game. In any other Call of Duty game I been playing the past ten years, Dom was always my go to mode.

          In this game, I can’t. 50 point per kill in Dom just isn’t enough at all, and it also doesn’t help the maps don’t play too well with the mode.

          Funny thing about Kill Confirmed, its actually my go to mode in the game lol. I think the score should be higher so I agree with you, but I find it more reasonable at its current state than I do domination. I actually get my scorestreaks in Kill Confirmed too lol
