Treyarch, Infinity Ward, and other partners are planning to implement a Ranked mode in MW2’s multiplayer. They hinted that it will have Ranked Skill Division, visible Skill Ratings, a Leaderboard, and various rewards. To prepare for the Ranked mode, they implemented the Call of Duty League Moshpit (CDL Moshpit) Playlist for Season 1. The playlist uses the CDL’s standard rules, map rotations, and restrictions.
