  • Many players were ranked too low during the first week of Overwatch 2, so we are implementing a boost as players continue to play games for those affected by this issue.

  • Players who haven’t ranked will not experience this issue after this patch.

You will start to see Numbani and Necropolis show back up in their respective playlists. A bug prevented players from playing these maps across the board.
