Overwatch: How Does Your Skill Rating Improve in Competitive Play?

Most of us Overwatch players are busy checking out Competitive Play, but how does your Skill Rating improve with each game? Jeff Kaplan recently clarified in response to player’s question:

“Your rating will increase or decrease based on:

  • Your skill rating
  • Opponent’s skill rating
  • Individual performance

The amount that you go up or down is not a set amount. Factors such as your skill rating, your opponent’s skill rating and your individual performance are all part of the equation.

The current Competitive System is not a progression-based system where you are gaining a set amount of “exp” for a win. We are constantly calibrating your skill as it relates to the other players that you win or lose against. This means sometimes it will go up or down very little and other times it will go up or down a lot.”
