Mortal Kombat 11 ranked mode arrives June 18

Mortal Kombat 11 ranked mode will separate the strong from the weak when it launches tomorrow.

Mortal Kombat 11 ranked mode, Kombat League, finally arrives on the platform tomorrow, June 18, so you can prove how good/bad you are. The Kombat League will be a seasonal ranked ladder to add a more competitive edge to NetherRealm's spine-smashing fighter.

Need help picking your Kombat League main? Check out the Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List.

Each Kombat League season will be four weeks long, and you'll compete in ranked ladder matches to climb up through nine tiers labeled Apprentice up to Elder God. No grandiosity there, then.

Each tier you progress through will unlock in-game items, and if you calibrate at a higher rank you'll earn all the rewards for the lower ranks too. Item rewards are awarded for the highest tier you achieve per season, so if you get to the top and then go on the longest losing streak in gaming history, you'll still get your sweet just rewards. And once one four-week season is over, the next one begins immediately. You might even call them monthly seasons, if anything were normal and made sense in the world of online persistent gaming environments.

Kombat League should have an optimized matchmaking system in it to help pit you against similarly skilled opponents, which should help offset the sting of being denied entry into a new tier. It's not always going to perfectly match your power levels though, so to help you understand when you're being short-shafted, there's a meter that will show you your algorithm-predicted odds of winning when you get matched against a new opponent. Try not to sandbag too much if the meter puts you as the favorite. Don't want to embarrass yourself.

Kombat League will arrive at the same time as early access for MK11's newest fighter, Shang Tsung, the first of the six DLC fighters in the Kombat Pack. The remaining MK11 DLC fighters that we know of are Sindel, Nightwolf and Spawn, with it looking increasingly likely that the Terminator will make up one of the remaining slots (thanks incredibly persistent movie tie-ins) and Ash Williams for the last.
