Competitive play will be the main focus Overwatch 2, so it’s no surprise that Blizzard developer is retooling the game’s signature mode to make it a better experience. Blizzard outlined many of the changes coming to Competitive ahead of the game’s imminent launch, including new skill-tier divisions, new requirements to unlock ranked, a more robust scoreboard, and many other additions in a developer post on Wednesday.
Blizzard reiterated its commitment to Competitive play Overwatch 2, new players will have to win 50 quick play matches and complete the “first-time user experience.” This should guarantee that everyone in ranked has enough experience to be there, while also keeping new players from accidentally wading into the deep end too early. Returned players will be able to keep their ranks from the initial. Overwatch, they’ll be able to return to Competitive play immediately.
Overwatch 2’s Competitive mode will also feature a very different system for tracking players ranks throughout the mode. Instead of the standard number used in the original game, Overwatch 2 will used skill-tier division; these will breakup the regular tiers using a system that starts at division 5 and goes up to division 1 after which they’ll advance to the next tier. On top of that, players won’t be able to see the progress they’re making game to game. Blizzard won’t display these rankings changes between seven wins and twenty losses.
The new scoreboard is another major update for Competitive mode. It will no longer display medals as in the original game and instead show traditional stats such kills, deaths, or assists. This will allow players to see how the match is progressing and also let them know what needs to be changed to make their game more winning.
In addition to all the big picture changes mentioned above, Overwatch 2’s Competitive mode is also getting a number of smaller quality-of-life additions like improved post-game reports and stat tracking. Portrait levels were also replaced. Overwatch 2Battle Pass levels are preferable
