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
