I play Starcraft and today someone asked me if I had ever played 'ranked'.

What does that mean?

    A quick Google would have found you the answer and on top of that, looking at the games main interface would have also found you the answer. – ReallyGoodPie Feb 11 '15 at 12:49
  • Are you talking about starcraft 2, or about starcraft? – CodesInChaos Nov 20 '15 at 14:42

That person was asking you if you have ever played against other people for a place in a leaderboard. Starcarft 2 has a ladder system. You get into leagues and you increase your rank by winning matches, or decrease it by losing them. Think of it as a permanent tournament going on.

If you perform well you are promoted to a higher league. If you don't, you are demoted. There are 7 leagues per each mode.

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Diamond
  • Master
  • Grandmaster

With modes like 1vs1, 2vs2, and so on. Grandmaster is 1vs1 only though.
