How does FACEIT's league system work?
FACEIT Leagues are available for all games publicly available on our platform and are accessible for FACEIT subscribers.
The ranked Leagues are reset monthly and the top players from each League win prizes - such as Premium or FACEIT Points. You can win up to 130,000 FACEIT Points!
In order to be placed into a League, you first have to play three placement matches. After you’ve played these, you will get an alert telling you which League you have been placed into. The only way to play in the League is via quick matches and not tournaments. You can enter Leagues for all the publically available games on our platform, and the different game modes for said games (i.e. SMITE Arena League and SMITE Conquest League).
League placements are based off of your games Elo. Each games League status according to Elo is available here:
- CS:GO League status
- LoL League status
- Dota 2 League status
- WoT League status
- SMITE League status
- TF2 League status
In order to get to a higher League, you must raise your Elo to the required number as detailed in that specific League. You won’t move into the higher League this month, but will be placed in it the following month, provided your Elo stays at the required number.
Each League has separate Ladders within them. These are different to our weekly/monthly/community Ladders.
Each Ladder consists of 100 players and when one is filled, a new one is created. This excludes Master League which only has one Ladder.
Within the Ladders, you will gain and lose League points depending on victories or defeats in your quick matches.
If you play against players who have a higher skill level and win, you will win more League points. If you lose against higher skill levelled players, you will lose less League points.
When the month is over, the top players from each Ladder within the League will win prizes. These prizes vary from League to League but not from Ladder to Ladder. For example, if you are in the Silver League in Ladder 5, you will receive the prize as the person in Silver league Ladder 7 if you’re both ranked third place.
These Leagues are all checked over by our Community Team before the prizes are awarded. At the moment this process can range from 14 to 30 working days.
