A new Discord chat for high level ranked players has been set up by FaZe Clan’s James ‘Replays’ Crowder.

Ranked play has been a source of frustration for a lot of top players in CoD:WWII, mostly due to getting matched with teammates that don’t know higher level strategies.

Replays’ Discord is an attempt to change that and become a place for Ranked players to team up. The requirements to get into the chat are steep, players will need at least a 2000 MMR score to enter.

Those interested in joining the Discord will need to reply to the tweet below with with proof of their rank.

Interestingly enough, Replays has a FaZe Clan teammate who does not meet the standards of his Discord.

Despite this, it’s likely that Replays will make an exception for his Gold ranked teammate, however the rest will need at least 2000 MMR to try to get in. 

Scored between 0-3000, MMR is based on rank points that players earn when playing placement matches. Players can increase their MMR by winning more matches, but also decrease their rank if they lose.

Replays is a former Call of Duty Champs winner for Advanced Warfare, taking home the championship with JKap, Clayster and Attach under Denial Esports.

After partially retiring following the Black Ops 3 season, Replays returned to join FaZe Clan for the start of CoD:WWII, finishing 4th at CWL Dallas and winning the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
