What Happens When A Top 500 Overwatch Player On PS4 Switches To PC


What Happens When A Top 500 Overwatch Player On PS4 Switches To PC

So, what is the Competitive Play challenge If you're a new Overwatch 2 player, it's a task you need to complete to unlock Competitive Play and its ranking system, which we've detailed how to do below...

Basically, whatever console account is linked to the BattleNet account you confirmed, everything on that console account up to launch of Overwatch 2 is rolled into your BattleNet account when the new game launches.

Consoles supported for cross-play are Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Playstation 4, Playstation 5 and the Nintendo Switch. All players on these consoles will automatically have cross-play enabled when the feature launches.

As this mode exists to players wanting a more serious experience of Overwatch, harsher punishments are given to players who abandon their team before the end of the match. As opposed to Quick Play, players who exit a match from Competitive Play prematurely will not be able to join another game of any play mode until their original match is concluded, and departed players will not be backfilled. Players that fail to rejoin their match before it ends will automatically gain a loss, and have their future placement ranking lowered, as well as a temporary suspension from Competitive Play, with repeated offenses extending the duration of the suspension until an eventual permanent ban from the game mode. As such, it is ill-advised to play comp when you are short on time, or have a poor connection to the game.

Many online multiplayer titles have cross-play, a feature that allows players on various platforms to play in the same matches.

Fear not though console players, as you can tinker with some settings. You can still make adjustments to your sensitivity and other configurations. Optimizing your settings will help you outplay your opponents on a more regular basis.

Keep in mind your gameplay experience will depend on what you do. For example, you might be fine questing in the Barrens on World of Warcraft, but things might get laggy if you hop into a twenty-man raid. And, hosting in Stardew Valley may be more problematic than joining someone nearby in multiplayer mode.

"Overwatch" player and Twitch streamer Somjuu, who is ranked Grandmaster at Activision Blizzard's massively popular shooter, recently tried playing the game on a PS4. The results were likely not what he expected.

GameRant reports that the Top 500 "Overwatch" player struggled heavily on console when he made the switch, which recently reignited debates on whether somebody who's good at shooters on PC might not be as good on console and vice versa.

Update: The "unexpected server error" messages that some players are receiving when trying to log into Overwatch 2 are "actively being worked on," according to a Blizzard CS tweet (opens in new tab). The message seems to be
