We’re past the halfway point of Season 12 for Overwatch’s competitive playlist, but how much time do you have left to get to that coveted Grandmaster rank? Here’s everything you need to know.
Competitive Play is the ranked playlist for Overwatch and sees players locked into each game for a full map. You need to reach level 25 before the mode becomes available.
Modes include Escort, Assault, Control and Hybrid and each player must take part in a total of 10 placement matches before being allocated their initial rank for each season.
Ranking is based on a Skill Rating (SR) that ranges from 1 to 5,000, and each skill tier falls somewhere on that spectrum.
