When can you start playing Rainbow Six Siege ranked?

You can start playing Rainbow Six ranked once you hit level 50. Before then, you’ll have to grind it out in the quick match or newcomer queues.

Once you do reach ranked, you’ll be able to play in a longer “first-to-four” rounds format. If scores are all tied at 3-3 by the end of regulation, there’ll be a three-round overtime to determine the winner.

You’re allowed to pick the map you play on somewhat thanks to the map ban feature, and you can even take some of the stronger operators off the board with attacker and defender bans.
