You'll want an explainer of the Street Fighter 6 ranked tiers in order, so you can understand the ranked system, and how aspects like League Points work to help you climb the ranks.

Street Fighter 6 is finally here, continuing the legendary fighting game franchise with its most expansive and varied entry yet. On top of introducing a different roster of both new and old characters, the game adds an open-world campaign mode called World Tour, and the ranked mode has been overhauled entirely.

So, if you need to know the Street Fighter 6 ranked tiers in order, along with an explanation of how the ranked system works overall, we've got you covered.

The Street Fighter 6 ranked mode is the game's competitive space, where players can compete against similarly skilled opponents, with the goal of climbing the ranks by winning games.

There are a total of eight ranks that range from Rookie to Master, referred to as leagues in-game. Each league has five internal ranks players will progress through by earning League Points, which are gained based on their performance. 

It's also worth noting that your League Points (and rank) are tied to your specific character, not the player profile. So, you will need to start from the beginning whenever you use a different fighter. 

When starting the ranked mode, you'll get the chance to select your experience level with fighting games. Choosing the Beginner option will place you in Rookie automatically, which is reserved for new players to help them gain experience.

Alternatively, the Advanced option will let you begin your ten placement matches, which decide on your rank at the end based on your overall performance.

Ranking up in Street Fighter 6 requires players to win matches in their respective league. Winning games will earn you League Points, while losing will deduct them

With enough League Points, you will rise through the ranks in your league and then be promoted to the next one.

Each league also has specific protections and features that can prevent players from being demoted, or earn you bonus points. We'll cover all of these specifics below.

Rookie 

  • Win streak bonus - Yes
  • League Points lost on defeat - No

Iron, Bronze, Silver, and Gold

  • Win streak bonus - Yes
  • League demotion - No
  • One-time rank-down protection - Yes 

Platinum and Diamond

  • Win streak bonus - No
  • League demotion - Yes
  • One-time rank-down protection - Yes

Master

  • Win streak bonus - No
  • League demotion - No

That's all for our explainer of the Street Fighter 6 ranked tiers in order, and now you should have a better understanding of the ranked mode, the different ranks, and League Points.
