If you’re looking forward to jumping into Apex Legends Mobile, you won’t have long to wait – Respawn Entertainment has been rolling its’ free-to-play mobile shooter for months now. However, if you want to climb the Apex Legends ranks – on mobile, anyway – you should be warned: Apex Legends Mobile is mocking players who derank.

Apex Legends’ ranked system is a cruel mistress, at times, and early footage of Apex Legends Mobile’s ranked system suggests that things are going to be same on your phone. Reddit user ‘Prakeet_khr‘ is one player that has shared their experiences with the mobile game’s ranked system. When they found themselves deranking, from Master 1 to Diamond 1,  they were met with the following message: “Your rank dropped. Such a pity!”

Laced with sarcasm, this isn’t exactly the supportive message players are going to want to see when they’re faced with defeat – however, fans online are finding the whole thing hilarious.

“I want a game that insults me for everything I do”, “please add this to the real game”, and “LMAOOOO they gotta add voicelines to go with it” are just some of the comments on the Reddit thread where Prakeet_khr shared their experience.

At the moment, there’s no telling if this is the only mocking message Apex Legends Mobile will serve players who derank – but, we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a few variations on this sentiment.

If you want to give Apex Legends Mobile a go yourself, you might have to wait – it’s only available on Android and iOS in the following regions: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentine, and Colombia. Respawn Entertainment hasn’t revealed when Apex Legends Mobile will be available more broadly – but, it’s worth keeping an eye on official sources for more information.
