Apex Legends players call for Respawn to make significant change to Ranked points

Apex Legends players are asking Respawn to changed the current Ranked points system, so that it stops rewarding lower-rank kills.

Apex players ask for changes to RP

Apex Legends players are frustrated with the current Ranked point system and are asking Respawn Entertainment to enforce rules that keep high-ranked players from farming lower levels.

Apex Legends’ Ranked mode is the perfect competitive playground for serious players in the battle royale. You’ll earn Ranked Points for completing tasks like dealing damage and scoring kills, allowing you to progress to higher levels.

However, some Apex players want Respawn to change the current system, as they believe that it rewards players that only farm lower-ranked players instead of facing players of the same skill level.

Apex Legends ranks

Reddit user PharrowXL highlighted this issue in the Apex Legends subreddit, and presented a solution: don’t give Ranked points for killing lower-ranked players during a match.

“It’s time to discredit KP for Predators vs people below Diamond. That way, Predators have no incentive to farm low ranked lobbies for kills,” they wrote. Others have shared this sentiment throughout Season 9.

The comments were filled with players that agreed with this “If you aren’t allowed to party up with people below your rank why in the world should you be forced into a lobby with them,” said another user.

However, some felt that this change could drive away Predator players since they would get no RP despite risking their own. These users said the problem is with how Respawn designed the system and not with the players.

We might see a change to this system soon enough since Respawn often responds to in-game problems. They recently nerfed Valkyrie after a few players took advantage of her ability to fly extended distances.

We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this and will let you know if the developers announce any solution of their own for the issue of Ranked points in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends is nearing Season 12, which looks to bring new content to the game such as a Collection Event and map updates. Previously, big updates have caused server issues for the devs, however, in recent times, the game has been fairly smooth for players.

Although the servers have been relatively stable recently, players encounter these issues reasonably often and may even wonder whether it’s an issue on their end.

If you encounter any server issues, we have an excellent way for you to check the Apex Legends server status.

Currently, there are no issues being reported about mass server outages or problems. Apex hasn’t had many significant updates since the launch of Season 11, but we expect players to experience some instability, perhaps when Season 12 drops.

One of the most obvious ways to stay updated on whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down is by following updates on Apex Legends Twitter account and the development team at Respawn.

Usually, one of those accounts will be updating and communicating to players about any server issues going on. Further, you can also follow our dedicated Apex Legends Twitter account, alphaINTEL, which is a great place to stay updated with anything Apex-related.

If you don’t have Twitter or have checked and haven’t seen any update on whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down, perhaps the problems you are experiencing are that of your setup or region.

How to check Apex Legends server status

There is a great way to check the regional Apex Legends server status for these specific problems so that you can see whether the issues you are experiencing are regional or due to your internet service provider.

The way to do so is through a handy website called apexlegendsstatus, which will give you a breakdown of server status in all the available regions, as well as all the platforms you could be playing the game on.

The website will even tell you how much latency (ms) in each server, indicating its stability.

Further, you can also report issues if there isn’t too much notice about the issue on the website, which will be added to a live report map you can check to see if people in your region are also experiencing the issue.

So, if you’re having issues, check this website to see whether it’s the platform or server you are playing that is having problems, or if these are all up and running, you can put it down to your setup.


Well, there you have it. This is the best way you can check the Apex Legends server status. For more on Apex, check out the teased map changes coming in Season 12.

Apex Legends is developed by Respawn Entertainment, a development studio under EA founded by Jason West and Vince Zampella, who originally co-founded Infinity Ward, the development studio behind multiple Call of Duty games, with its latest being Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019).

Ultimately, Respawn Entertainment have no affiliation with Activision, and so the recent Microsoft deal doesn’t affect the ownership of the game at all.

Respawn Entertainment is also the studio behind the Titanfall franchise, which is very closely connected to Apex Legends, as the battle royale game takes place in the Titanfall universe.

Further, Respawn isn’t just known for creating FPS games, but the development studio also created Star Wars: Fallen Order, a story game held in high regard.
