Season 3 to Begin with Big Changes on December 1st -

In a new post on the Overwatch forum, Game Director Jeff Kaplan has announced that competitive Season 3 will begin on December 3, 2016. There are some significant changes coming for the next competitive season, all of which are currently being tested on the PTR. 

Competitive matchmaking will be altered to ensure the most fair games possible while at the same time providing the feeling that Season 3 marks a fresh beginning for players. As a result, Skill Rating from Season 2 will be used as a starting point for the new season.

Additionally, and to spread the Skill Tiers in a more balanced way, a new calculation to determine what tier a player will be placed in will be utilized resulting in players perhaps starting in a different tier at the start of Season 3 than they ended in during Season 2. 

We’ll be looking closely at the results of players placement on PTR and see if our goals are being met, and might make further adjustments during this testing cycle that might require a reset of placement matches. If that’s the case, we’re try to provide advanced notice whenever possible.
