 Earning rank points
Rank points are earned at the end of a match and are based on whether your team won or lost. Matches that last shorter than average will yield proportionally less points. The number of points earned further depends on the type of match played. Additionally, being auto-balanced provides you with an additional 25 rank points, and each top-stat you earn gives you another 5.
|Match type||Rank points per win||Rank points per loss|
|Custom Arena / Hotjoin||200||125|
