When a new Season begins, the first ten matches in any Competitive Playlist
are your placement matches.
Placement matches help determine your skill level. After your placement
matches are completed, you will be matched with opponents of a similar level
when you join a Competitive Playlist.
At the end of the 10 placement matches, you may be a different Rank than the
players you partied with. If you are rated a lower Rank than your friends, hop
back on the field and do your best to climb up the ranks!
