Overwatch’s Competitive Play Season 2 Is Getting Some Big Changes

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan has detailing the many tweaks coming to the game in the Season 2 update. Much of the work being done is for the competitive mode. The current skill rating system of 1 to 100 will now be a scale of 1 to 5,000. Skill ratings will fall into 1 of 7 tiers like bronze, silver or gold. How rounds can play out will also be changing. Hybrid and Payload maps are getting the "Time Bank" system currently seen on Assault maps, and there won't be any more sudden-death rounds or coin flips. While ties will be possible, Kaplan says they should be "very rare." In those situations, you'll still come away with some competitive points. To hear everything on what Kaplan had to say about the update, you can watch the video below.
