The Street Fighter 6 ranking system is very different from Street Fighter 5’s, the main difference being that Street Fighter 5 had 20 different ranks and no concept of leagues. Moreover, your rank remains tied to a specific character; for example, you can be a Platinum Cammy but be only a Bronze Juri.

Character-wise, ranks are perfect; you can try out new characters without risking your rank on your main. Moreover, this also means you can prevent yourself from becoming a one-trick pony as soon as you reach a good rank.

The ranking system, it is pretty simple to understand. You gain LP(League Points) by winning ranked matches. Moreover, you may gain additional LP if the league rules apply to you. After reaching a certain amount of LP, you rank up, which means you will face higher-skill players in your matches.

You must complete ten placement matches when you first enter the ranked matches. Your performance in these matches decides the rank you will start with. Moreover, it is a good idea to put your whole effort into these placement matches to have a good starting point for your ranked journey.

After the placement matches, consistency will help you, as remaining consistent creates a baseline after which you can improve. Moreover, practicing regularly and warming up before playing ranked also helps greatly. In addition to that, you can watch YouTube videos and Reddit guides to learn more about your character’s playstyle and different combos.

However, the most important thing to ensure is that you are having fun playing the game and being competitive but not toxic at the end of the day. It is better to play a few games a day than to grind 20 games in one day and burn yourself out. This is most important when you lose games, as playing more will only frustrate you, and you will lose a lot of LP.
