What is Ranked Play in Clash Mini? – Clash Mini Ranked Play Guide

In this Clash Mini ranked play guide, we will discuss the most commonly asked question, “what is ranked play in Clash Mini” mobile game? But before we dive deep into what is ranked play in Clash Mini, lets us establish some things first:

  • Clash Mini ranked game modes are not for everyone, so you will never be forced to play ranked in Clash Mini in order to progress your Minis and Heroes. I would encourage everyone to try it out and use up your Challenge Coins, if only to get some additional rewards for your efforts.
  • We all agree that leagues can often feel like a grind in a lot of other games, so progressing through the ranks will be fairly easy in Clash Mini up to a certain point. The exception is the Legendary League. Which is where all the hardcore players can go crazy and fight to be in the top 1000 global ranking.
  • Matchmaking is hard, like really hard. The matchmaking in Clash Mini is custom-built and there are a lot of things we can do in order to ensure fair games, but we will need to experiment with it and get your feedback to find where we can improve. Try not to get too bent out of shape if someone has 1 higher Hero level than you, or a Mini you don’t have yet. You probably got matched with them because you have the skills to pay the bills.

Now, let get back to our main Clash Mini ranked play guide:
