Teamfight Tactics (TFT): Seasonal rank system and player distribution - January 2024

The rank system in Teamfight Tactics (TFT) is composed of 9 ranks split in 4 tiers each. Find out the player distribution and all the info shared by Riot devs SapMagic, Ran Cao, and MapleNectar on the MMR system.

I will monitor both the dev blogs and their social profiles to update this article over time with all the info we have on the rank system and distribution.

Set 10 - Remix Rumble

Patch 13.23 - Remix Rumble!

New ranked season

TL;DR: Because we’re moving to 3 sets a year with no mid-sets, we need to make some updates to smooth out the climb. These updates include the release of Emerald tier, a reduction in penalties for LP decay below Challenger, and an increase in the banked game max to 14 to align with LoL PC. Masters+ players can now enjoy a full 2-week vacation!

  • Climbing will be slightly easier and faster to rank up to Platinum and below.

  • Higher ranks may take longer, because we have a longer season (no mid-set reset), we’re adjusting the climb to fit it’s new length (but not exactly in a 1:1).

  • Emerald Tier is here.

  • Inactivity penalty changed! Days banked 10 ⇒ 14 (aka Masters+ players can now enjoy a full 2-weeks off).

  • LP Decay adjusted! For Master, the new penalty for inactivity will be -50 LP (from -250).

  • LP Decay adjusted! For Grandmaster, the new penalty for inactivity will be -150 LP (from -250).

  • LP Decay for Challenger players remains the same, -250LP.

  • When Remix Rumble goes live in your region, you'll be able to start climbing the ladder immediately.

  • Depending on your rank in the previous season, you will start anywhere from Iron II to Bronze IV. This is true for both Double Up and Standard ranked.

  • You will get 5 provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top 4 placements in your first 5 ranked games of the new stage. You'll also gain extra LP for finishing top 4, so best of luck!

  • Your Hyper rating will be reset to 500.

  • Note that there’s still a 24h period of delay between mobile and PC going live.

The Emerald tier

The Emerald tier will exist between Platinum and Diamond ranks. Adding this extra tier helps to flatten the curve of ranked skill disparity - with more nuance between ranks, each rank is a more accurate representation of an individual player’s skill level, especially between Platinum and Diamond.

Set 5: Reckoning

Updated to Dawn of Heroes!

Patch 11.15 - Dawn of Heroes

Grandmaster and Challenger ranked

Just like Festival of Beasts, Grandmaster and Challenger are unlocked immediately, allowing for the true zero-to-hero competition. Challenger and Grandmaster are still limited to the top accounts on each server, but players must have at least 200 LP in Master to reach Grandmaster, and at least 500 LP in Grandmaster to reach Challenger.

Reckoning ranked stage II

  • Your rank has been "soft" reset down one tier below your current standings. For example, if you are currently in Gold II you will now be in Silver II.

  • If you are very good at this game and currently placed in Master or above, you will be reset to Diamond 4.

  • You will get five provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top-four placements in your first five ranked games of the new stage. You’ll also gain some extra LP for finishing top four.

  • Ranked rewards for the first half of Reckoning will be distributed in patch 11.16 for those Shadow Item enthusiasts who made it to Gold or higher.

Hyper Roll tiers

  • Emote rewards will be earned for players that reach Blue, Purple, and Hyper tier before patch 11.15.

  • Hyper Roll tiers will not be hard reset. Instead, anyone at Blue or higher will go to the bottom of Blue.

  • The rewards for Hyper Roll will come in patch 11.16 alongside the rest of the ranked rewards for the first half of Reckoning.

Patch 11.10

Ranked rewards

  • Players who reached Gold or higher at any point in the Fates set will receive the Victorious Protector to me-wow their opponents.

  • Players who managed to reach Gold or higher in both halves of the set will receive the Fates-themed Triumphant Protector as well.

  • If you made it to Gold or higher during the Festival of Beasts, then you’ll be awarded with a Protector emote to celebrate your performance during the back half of Fates. The emote will signal your success through a headdress that reflects the rank you received.

Patch 11.9 - Reckoning

  • When Reckoning goes live in your region with patch 11.9, you’ll be able to start climbing the ladder in this set's first Ranked stage. As a reminder, Grandmaster and Challenger are unlocked right out of the gates.

  • Everyone will start Reckoning in Iron II.

  • You will get 5 provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top-4 placements in your first 5 ranked games of the new stage. You’ll also gain extra LP for finishing top-4.

Hyper Roll

Competitive play in Hyper Roll is going to work a bit differently. Everyone will start in Gray tier and progress throughout a Color system climaxing in Hyper Tier.

  • There is an even percentage distribution at Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, while the skill level ramps up at Diamond, which is limited to 4% of the player base.

  • Overall, achieving Platinum is already a great accomplishment because you will become one of the top 16% players in the game.

Set 4: Fates

Updated to Festival of Beasts!

Patch 11.7

  • We've made changes in our MMR systems to create more consistency in LP gains/losses. You should see a smoother climb (or fall) going forward.

Patch 11.2 - Festival of Beasts

Grandmaster and Challenger ranked changes

To make the race to Grandmaster and Challenger more exciting, we've changed the unlock process.

  • Challenger and Grandmaster are still limited to the top accounts on each server, but players must have at least 200 LP in Master to reach Grandmaster, and at least 500 LP in Grandmaster to reach Challenger.

  • Grandmaster and Challenger are no longer locked at the start of the season, so the race to be the first in your region starts on day one!

Region Challenger and Grandmaster quota adjustments

  • Some regions are having their Challenger and Grandmaster slot counts adjusted to match their populations.

Fates Ranked Stage II

  • Your rank has been "soft" reset down one tier below you. For example, if you are currently in Gold II you will now be in Silver II.

  • If you are very good at this game and currently placed in Master or above, you will be reset to Diamond 4.

  • You will get 5 provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top 4 placements in your first 5 ranked games of the new stage. You’ll also gain extra LP for finishing top four.

Patch 10.19 - Fates

  • When Fates goes live in your region with patch 10.19, you’ll be able to start climbing the ladder in this set's first Ranked stage.

  • Most of you will start Fates in Iron 2. If you ended Galaxies in Diamond 1 you will start in Iron 1. Master+ players will start in Bronze 4.

  • Galaxies Ranked rewards will be given out on patch 10.21.

  • Players finishing in 4th place or better will now gain at least 10 LP.

  • Players finishing in 5th place or worse will now lose at least 10 LP (or enough to hit 0 LP).

Set 3: Galaxies

Updated to Galaxies II

Patch 10.13 changes

  • If you are ranked Master or above, you may now only queue solo in Ranked.

Patch 10.12 - Galaxies II

  • Your rank has been “soft” reset down 1 Tier. For example, Gold III players will move down to Silver III. Instead, Master and above players will be reset to Diamond 4.

  • You will get 5 provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top 4 placements in your first 5 ranked games.

Patch 10.6 changes

  • There is no longer any rank decay below Master.

  • You also cannot decay out of Master. We hope you'll keep trying for the top, but we don't want TFT to feel like a daily obligation with a big penalty hammer attached.

Data gathered on September 9th, 2020, a week before the end of the set.

The data gathered this month shows a slightly different distribution if compared to the one we are accustomed to. In fact, there is a drastic increase of players ranked at Gold and above.

We are approaching the end of Galaxies II, so I believe this is just a momentary phase in which everyone is trying their best to get “just a tier higher” for better seasonal rewards (check out Gold IV, Platinum IV, and Diamond IV percentages). 

Teamfight Tactics is a game in which knowledge is power, so this goal is easily achievable if one uses the strongest team builds of the meta in each match.

A summary of the data

Most probably, Riot is using a very similar matchmaking algorithm in Teamfight Tactics and League of Legends as their rank distribution graphs are almost identical.

About TFT, I believe that the percentage of players at each rank is perfectly balanced:

  • One third of the player base is placed at Iron and Bronze, the average rank is Silver II, and Gold I is equal to the top 86%.

  • Many claim that you must reach “at least” high Diamond to be considered a skilled player. In my opinion, obtaining Platinum is already a significant achievement because you are of the best 12% players in the whole game.

  • Similarly to LoL, there is a disproportionate number of players at Gold IV, Platinum IV, and Diamond IV, as the ranked system tends to accumulate them there.

Mid-set update and rank reset

The duration of Set 3: Galaxies has been extended to six months, with a large mid-set update that will bring new champions and traits.

  • The first ranked act will end with patch 10.12, which is planned for June 10th, according to Riot 2020 patch schedule.

  • The second ranked act will start as soon as the update hits the live servers.

The developers believe that increasing the duration of the set will give us the time to enjoy fully the set’s content and mechanics.

Our rank will be soft reset at the end of the first ranked act, but at a softer rate than usual because we are not transitioning into a new set.

Most players will start the next act 1 tier below where they ended the previous act. (For example, Gold 3 to Silver 3.) All Master+ players will go to Diamond 4.
