Overwatch Competitive’s first season ending August 17th!
Even though it only feels like yesterday that Overwatch’s first Competitive Season began, it appears the fun is already coming to a temporary close. Ending August 17th, this will put a short hold on ranked mode’s availability, leaving quick play as the only stable game mode (with the brawls continuing to change each week). Overwatch competitive’s second season is currently scheduled to launch on September 6, but this could shift as blizzard continues to work on system improvements.The exact date and time will be announced as we get closer to its release.
SEASON 1 REWARDS
If you completed your placement matches during Season 1, you will eligible to receive a special spray and player icon. These will be unlocked automatically when you log into your account the first time after the season ends. If at any point during the season you managed to break into the Top 500 players on your platform (and in your region), you’ll receive an extra player icon and animated spray on top of the other seasonal rewards.
Aside from sprays and icons, you’ll also receive a number of Competitive Points based on the maximum skill rating you achieved during the season.
Here’s the Skill Rating (SR) to Competitive Point (CP) breakdown for Season 1:
- SR 0-39: 10 CPs
- SR 40-45: 20 CPs
- SR 46-49: 40 CPs
- SR 50-52: 60 CPs
- SR 53-55: 80 CPs
- SR 56-59: 120 CPs
- SR 60-64: 200 CPs
- SR 65+: 300 CPs
Despite it’s brevity, the Overwatch competitive scene has done nothing but boom since release, with multiple tournaments and official events around the world. Hopefully this break will allow Blizzard to determine how seasons shall function later on, as it’s infancy develops.
