Rocket League has a unique Rank system that lets players gradually progress from being unranked to Supersonic Legends. The game allows you to rise up through a variety of different modes. For new players, this ranking system might prove to be a little tricky to understand. In this guide, we will explain ranks and MMR (Matchmaking Rank) in the game.
Rocket League Ranks & MMR Explained
Rocket League features 23 different ranks (including unranked). These ranks are then further split into divisions. Each rank has four divisions. Let us now check out the different ranks. The ranks are arranged in ascending order, right from unranked to the highest possible rank you can achieve in Rocket League.

Of these ranks, Supersonic Legend is the highest you can possibly achieve. This particular rank has dethroned Grand Champion as the highest rank since 2020.
When looking at the ranks, it is important for you to know that each competitive mode in Rocket League has its own individual ranking hierarchy that you will need to ascend. This means that you will have a different rank for each mode of the game. To make things easier, we can consider an example where you may be a Diamond 3-ranked player in the Standard mode, but you might also be only a Silver 2-ranked player in the Doubles mode. Also, your level of ranking in Rocket League is influenced by something called MMR. MMR stands for Matchmaking Rank. Each win will cause the MMR to rise, and similarly, each loss will cause the MMR to go downhill. Each rank and each division in the game has its own set MMR target. You will need to meet this target in order to proceed further. Let us now check out all there is to know about the MMR. Before we proceed any further, you need to note that MVP awards, goals, and assists do not influence the MMR that you win.
What is MMR in Rocket League?
As we mentioned earlier, MMR (Matchmaking Rank) is a score that influences your rank in Rocket League. At the same time, it also acts as a means to place opponents with similar skills against you. The rank that you earn is basically a visual representation of your Matchmaking Rank in the game.
While MMR may appear to be slightly confusing for those uninitiated, it can be quite helpful. With it, you will have the option to view a breakdown of the scores you need to gain access to the next rank. At the same time, you will also be able to compare yourself with other players around the world.
The MMR that you can acquire with each victory or lose with each loss is directly proportional to your opponent’s MMR. This means that you will stand to earn a higher amount of MMR if you face off against an opponent with a higher rank than you. At the same time, you will also lose lesser MMR if you are defeated by a player with an equivalent ranking.
How does the Ranking System Work?
In order to begin with ranked playlists in Rocket League, you will first need to reach level 10. You will be given an initial rank once you unlock these playlists. This rank will be determined by the result of a few placement matches that you will have to take part in.
Once you receive your rank, you will begin to play matches against players with equal or similar skills as you. Winning will help you rise up the rank ladder. Likewise, losses will result in rank drops.
Each rank in Rocket League, and each of the 4 divisions present in each rank have a particular MMR limit. Once you surpass this limit, you will find yourself promoted to the next division. However, you also need to keep in mind the fact that these limits are subject to change at any time. The number of players present in specific ranks can influence these changes.
This is all you need to know about the ranks and the MMR in Rocket League. As you can see, the ranking system is a great way of pitting players of similar skill levels against each other. This makes playing the game a fair experience, while also rewarding players that work their way up the ranks.
