Following feedback from the Asphalt 9 community, Gameloft will be reworking the Multiplayer World Series to improve the game's racing experience.
Gameloft has decided to rework the Multiplayer World Series in Asphalt 9. The changes in this rework have been a long time coming as many in the community believed that rewards were unfairly distributed and that the universal ELO reset for every player at the end of every season discarded the work that many put in to climb to the top of the league.
This isn't the first time that the ranked multiplayer mode has changed. Gameloft has been tinkering with ranked for several months now, and this rework appears to be another step in the right direction to ensure that Asphalt 9 players get the best gaming experience.
Here's a look at the details of the Multiplayer World Series rework.
Multiplayer World Series Rework - Release Date
The Multiplayer World Series rework will be implemented in Asphalt 9 at the end of the current World Series season on September 22, 2022. The changes will only be felt at the end of the next season. The end of the current season will not take any of these new changes into consideration.
Multiplayer World Series Rework - Changes
The rework for the Multiplayer World Series will be done in two steps: rewards adjustments and the discarding of the universal ELO reset at the end of each multiplayer season.
Firstly, rewards will be adjusted for each league. To accomplish this, the score distribution has been adjusted even if the pool of players in your league is not full. With this system in place, you will be able to receive the same rewards and climb the ranking regardless of the matchmaking results. Altogether, it will make the experience of advancing up leagues easier and more consistent for everybody.
The second change concerns the ELO reset at the end of the multiplayer season. Previously, everyone would be reset to the Bronze League at the end of the season. With this new rework, your ELO at the end of a season will be reset to a score ranging between 1,000 and 1,160 (though this range may change in the future). Your ELO within this range will depend on your final rank at the end of the previous season.
For example, if you finished the previous season between the Gold and Legend leagues, you will automatically start in the Silver league at the beginning of the next season. So, the higher you finish in the previous season, the closer your starting multiplayer ELO score will be to the next league at the beginning of the next season.
Once this rework is introduced in Asphalt 9, you will need to race at least once in the Multiplayer World Series at least once to win any rewards.
