If you want to know more about the new Overwatch 2 Competitive Ranks, Divisions, and Tiers, you're in the right place!
Overwatch 2 introduced a major shake-up to its Competitive Ranking System. The most notable change saw each Skill Tier comprise distinct Divisions, ranging from the lowest tier (Division 5) to the highest tier (Division 1). This change is also different for Role Queue and Open Queue. The second major change saw players no longer receiving rank updates after every game. This guide will discuss everything about the new Overwatch 2 Ranks and Divisions.
All Overwatch 2 Rank Tiers And Divisions
Regarding the Skill Tiers, nothing has changed in Overwatch 2. They still rank from Bronze to the Top 500. Instead, the big change is the addition of Divisions. In the past, you needed to accumulate 500 SR to rank up. Overwatch 2 is similar since there are 5 Divisions, and Blizzard confirmed they are roughly 100 SR each. The Top 500 Tier does not have Divisions.

How To Determine Rank Skill Tier In Overwatch 2
As mentioned previously, Blizzard has changed the way you receive progress in Overwatch 2 Competitive. Instead of gaining SR visually after every game, you will receive updates after every 7 Wins or 21 Losses, depending on which comes first.
Placements function in the same way. Regarding returning players, there have been reports of players placing approximately 5 Divisions lower in Overwatch 2 than their Overwatch 1 rank. It essentially acts as a mini MMR reset. On the other hand, new players' Competitive Ranking is determined by completing the First-Time User Experience.
At the start of each Competitive match in Overwatch 1, you could see the two teams' average SR and the rank of everyone in your lobby. This feature has since changed. You can no longer see your average SR or player's ranks on the opening screen in Overwatch 2. The change prevents players from making initial negative assumptions about their team or the opposition. Instead, you will now see player cards and titles that players have earned and want to show off.
That's everything to know about the Overwatch 2 Competitive Ranking System.
