Don't understand why people feel that players with more than one top 500 account are selfish... if you really "deserve" top 500, then you should go out and earn it!The more competition for the spot, the more weight it carries. Artificially making it easier is backwards imo. â€” Harsha Bandi (@ggHarsha) December 17, 2017
Being in the Top 500: Does it really matter?
If you read through Harshaâ€™s thread, youâ€™ll get a feeling of how the other side of the fence views the perceived problem. When you have thousands of players fighting for top spots in the competitive scene, it might seem like an exercise in futility when a few of them have many accounts in the Top 500. Depending on how you look at it, these players might seem â€œselfishâ€, and the integrity of what the Top 500 means might come into question. So, then, does being in the Top 500 really matter? You get a special icon and spray for finishing in the Top 500, but the visibility you get for being in the Top 500 is potentially invaluable. Overwatch League starts next month, and many pros and aspiring pros are putting together teams for Overwatch Open Division as well as Overwatch Contenders Season 2. Being able to say youâ€™re a Top 500 player gives you a ton of credibility right out of the gate. If the â€œpath to proâ€ is something youâ€™re interested in, having people with multiple Top 500 accounts could be getting in your way. [embed]https://youtu.be/rhdJouQwH8I[/embed]
SSSniperWolf about reaching Top 500
As the Overwatch pro scene develops, so too will the significance of the Top 500. If nothing else, itâ€™s really great to see so many people hungry for those top spots.
