Both play modes are very similar as ranked races require tickets in order to participate. Each race will have a goal that has to be fulfilled to earn points. Once the objective has been met, players are given the same options of either saving the points, continuing unsaved but with a next race bonus, or paying a fee for both. Each season lasts for 28 days with each league having its own prize kit.

After each new season starts, the rating of each player is decreased by 2 tiers. For example, if a player finished a season at 2,006 (Champion League Tier 4), the player starts the next season at 1,800 (Pro League Tier 2). If a player finished a season in the Elite League, the player starts the next season at 2,150 (Champion League Tier 3).
Tickets are the main form of currency in this game mode and are needed to participate in ranked races. Tickets can be earned by:
- waiting to be restocked,
- watching video ads,
- completing certain Daily Tasks,
- completing daily Heat Events,
- Paying , either for a full restock of 4 tickets, or from Exclusive Deals.
Up to 50 tickets can be stocked at a time. Tickets cannot be used during the off-season.
Each League season has featured cars that grants a 25% points bonus for each completed task and races won. On several occasions, a 50% points bonus is given for cars on a special offer or as part of its debut update.
Tuning Cars for Multiplayer
Multiplayer Cars are often 'tuned' for best speed at the minimum rank for matchmaking purposes. You can find a method to tune cars for Multiplayer on the MP math page, and an updated and improved MP-tuning guide here (under construction; check back often). However, as of the 2018 August update, multiplayer is based on speed and not rank, which makes it possible that when you, for example, are driving a Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition at rank 1111, you face an Lambroghini Sesto Elemento at rank 1600, because they have similar speed. This means these multiplayer tunes are most of the times worthless. Because of that, cars with high acceleration are often in 1st place.
Similar to Enduro Double Down Challenges, saving points will award the player with rewards. For a comprehensive list, see its subpage.
