Rounds

Gangster Nation Guide

Gangster Nation is played in rounds which usually last 15 weeks (about 3-4 months). This keeps the game fresh, allows us to release continuous game updates and gives new players the chance to compete with more experienced players. Each new round is a fresh start for everyone, although you can view the final rankings for previous rounds from the Statistics area.

Round schedule

As mentioned, a round usually lasts 15 weeks which is 105 days. During the last week of the round, we have a [Deathmatch](/guide/deathmatch) period - this is an interesting part of the round where the gameplay rules change and the general aim is to make as many kills as possible.

All active players receive an alert 10 days before the round ends. This alert contains the round end date, Deathmatch start date and the date of the next round beginning. We'll also post information about upcoming rounds on our social media pages. Generally a round will end in the evening of one day with the next round beginning at a specified time the following day.

Each new round is an opportunity to achieve new goals and reach new heights. It's an exciting part of the game which sees lots of players return and take part!

Round rankings

You will find the following rankings for each round on the Statistics screen:

Top Ranked is based on the amount of level points earned while Top Killers is based on the number of kill points earned. Most Kills is self explanatory.

The Pre-DM rankings are for the period between the beginning of the round and Deathmatch starting. As Deathmatch has different rules (such as large level point multipliers), there are separate rankings for the Deathmatch period.
