Begins on May 31st.
Season 4 of Overwatch’s Competitive Play may have ended on May 28th but Blizzard isn’t offering much time for rest. Season 5 will be starting up on May 31st at 8 PM ET.
Those who have completed Season 4 should be awarded with the requisite amount of Competitive Points depending on their rank. If you’re in Bronze (SR 1 to 1499), that means 100 CP. Silver (SR 1500 to 1999) means 200 CP. Gold (SR 2000 to 24999) equals 400 CP with Grandmaster (SR 4000 to 5000) getting 3000 CP.
The rewards for Competitive Play are the Golden Weapons which cost 3000 CP each. Even if you’re not an avid Competitive player, it’s worth finishing your placement matches to net some free CP. They add up over time.
You also get a free spray and player icon for completing your placement matches. Top 500 players for each region net an additional animated spray and special icon for their efforts.
