NetherRealm Studios has released a new, ranked mode in Mortal Kombat 11. The name of the mode is Kombat League, because of course it is. Every season of the ranked mode is going to be four weeks long, after which the whole thing starts over. There will be nine ranks to clamber up, and a lot of gear, cosmetics, and other in-game items to unlock. Oh, and daily and seasonal quests to complete.
So, yeah; Mortal Kombat 11 finally has a ranked mode; I’m sure many a dedicated player couldn’t wait for it. One season is going to last four weeks, and there will be nine ranks or tiers to climb up; from Apprentice to Elder God. Once the four weeks are up, the whole thing resets, and new rewards become available (more on those in a bit). Also, you’ll be able to complete daily and seasonal quests, which range from simply playing Ranked Mode matches, to spilling certain amounts of blood. Doing said quests will net you further in-game items.
So, what are your incentives to play this Kombat League mode, aside from, say, bragging rights? Well, as mentioned, playing and rising through the ranks are going to earn you various exclusive cosmetic items and gear. And when I say exclusive, I do mean exclusive; you can only obtain this stuff by playing ranked. And, as you can see in the announcement video below, they do look pretty cool. Best of all, even if you fall in the ranks, you get to keep whatever stuff you unlocked on the highest level you reached.
Matches in the Kombat League are going to work on a two-out-of-three principle. Plus, it’s going to match you up with people of the same skill level, meaning that you will always be in even matches; at least, in theory. So, yeah, time to hone your abilities and really start testing yourself against equal opponents.
