Naughty seems to have encoun­tered an issue dur­ing their lat­est Ranked Sea­son launch, so to fix the issue Ranked Sea­son 5 has come to an end and Ranked Sea­son 6 has begun.

The error that occurred to cause them to start Sea­son 6 was pre­vent­ing some player’s progress from being reset, giv­ing those play­ers an advan­tage in the com­pet­i­tive mode. Start­ing Sea­son 6 was Naughty Dogs way of lev­el­ing the play­ing field, although, any Ranked rewards earned from April 3rd until yes­ter­day will still be retained.

Ranked Sea­son 5 rewards are still going to be in the loot table for Ranked Sea­son 6. The Cow­boy Hat you will receive at the end of Sea­son 6 and the Sniper Mask dur­ing the sea­son as usu­al. For those that reach Gold Tier ΙΙΙ or high­er, they will obtain not only the Sea­son 6 Walk It taunt, but the Cab­bage Patch taunt as well. At the end of this sea­son play­ers will also be receiv­ing addi­tion Relics.

No rule have been changed this go around, but Naughty Dog plans on chang­ing the game mode for the next Ranked Sea­son. Below are a cou­ple of changes they made to mul­ti­play­er:

BALANCE AND FIXES

  • Added death region to Vil­lage to pre­vent exploit
  • Increase LP cost of Drake’s Aegis to 3 LP
