When your account reaches Level 8 and when you have at least 5 or more heroes, you'll unlock the Ranked Game option.
Ranked Game or simply Ranked is a competitive seasonal game mode that runs for three months, where you will be placed in one of the 7 divisions of the Ranked Game; that is arranged from the lowest to highest: Warrior, Elite, Master, Grandmaster, Epic, Legend, and Mythic. Warrior is the lowest division in the game, while Mythical Glory is the highest.
Players will be matched to opponents and allies that have similar or nearing Ranked Division. Every time you win a match in a Ranked Game, you will be awarded 1 star, while losing a Ranked Game will deduct you 1 star. Players can invite friends to play in ranked games together. A Ranked Game allows Solo, Duo, Trio, and Squad Match-ups. However, invited players must be within at least two ranks of each other.
Mythic is the highest division in ranked play, and the top 50 players at Mythic rank on every server, will receive the Glorious Mythic title. Players who reach Mythic and Glorious Mythic rank can unlock exclusive avatar borders, among other cool rewards.
When a player is ranked between Warrior and Grandmaster, they will go through the usual selection phase as they would experience in Classic. However, when a player reaches Epic or above, the selection phase will now become Draft Pick.
When the season ends, Ranked Games will be temporarily unavailable, until the new season starts, where the player will be placed on a new starting division determined by their highest division on the previous season. For more information about Starting Division after a new season starts, visit New Season Rank Inheritance down below this article.
Ranks are the Grading System for Mobile Legends players that determines how proficient and experienced the player is. Players are rewarded one star for every victory in a Ranked Game, but they lose a star for every defeat in a Ranked Game. When a player has full stars in level within a division, the next victory will result in a promotion to the next level within a division. However, when a player has full stars in a level I within their division (ex. Warrior I, Epic I, and Legend I), they will be promoted to the next division.
When a player has no stars in a level within their tier, the next defeat will get them demoted to the previous lower level (ex. Epic II → Epic III and Legend IV → Legend V) in their division. However, if they have no more stars within the lowest level in their division, they will drop down to the highest level of the lower division (ex: Legend V → Epic I and Grandmaster V → Master I).
In the Warrior division, no stars will be deducted for losses. For some of the ranks, if they reached another rank, it increases the slot by 1-star. All the info for the individual ranks is given below.
Warrior is the first rank, given to new ranked game players, once they fulfill the requirements. At this rank, you start at the lowest level, Warrior III. It takes three stars to rise to the next level, such as from Warrior III to Warrior II. The rank has only 3 divisions and it requires 4 stars to rank up to the next division/rank. When you lose in a match, as warrior ranked player, your star will not be lost. Ranking up to Elite requires Warrior 1 and 4 stars for promotion. When playing with friends, only Elite or below ranked co-players can invite you.

Star-raising Points & Protection Points
In addition to simply gaining a star for every victory and losing a star for every loss, there are also Star-raising Points which can allow you to get stars faster and Protection Points which can counteract star reductions.
You can get Star-raising Points when you win a ranked game(10+ pts depends on your battle Grade), and will get Protection Points whether you win or lose.
More consecutive wins will grant you more Star-raising Points (+20 pts depends on your battle Grade), .will also give you more points and you'll get more Protection Points if you perform better than your teammates in a game. Getting achievements like MVP, Legendary, etc. will also give Star-raising points.
- Legendary - 10 Pts.
- MVP - 10 Pts.
- Maniac - 40 Pts.
- Savage - 50 Pts.
When your Star-raising Points are full, they'll be converted into an additional star.
When your Protection Points are full, they will all be consumed to a counteract a star reduction when you lose a match. When you lose another match with no Protection Points maxed you will granted 10+ or more pts (depends on your battle grade)
The upper limits of Star-raising Points and Protection Points increase with your rank.
An extra 10 Protection Points given to a player when winning or losing the rank match. (Starlight Privilege)
If the player(s) do violates the rule in a Ranked Match, such as AFK in three minutes and the like, and the team is lost the match, the losing team receives 25% of Protection Points as violation protection, and the player who violates the rule within the losing team cannot receive rewards and is severely punished.
Also, there is a game mechanic in-game to Invalid the match. If one player is AFK, you and your teammates can choose the game to invalid the match.
You can do this by:
- Waiting for the 3-minute mark for the system to detect the AFK teammate only then can you initiate surrender to trigger the invalid system. All teammates must surrender immediately. Invalid can now be triggered even if a hero dies or a tower is brought down on either side of the game.
- No stars will be gained or lost during an invalid match. The system will put a spotlight on the AFK teammate and reduce their credit score.
- All rank badges resemble the animal heads on it, possibly that are smelted on.
