Greetings heroes,

As we prepare for Season 11, we’ve taken the time to evaluate a variety of game modes based on how much they are being played. Hero Mastery Gauntlet was intended to bring the high score-chasing excitement of Hero Mastery missions into a multiplayer format. Unfortunately, it hasn’t resonated with players in the ways that we hoped. With this in mind, we have decided to discontinue Hero Mastery Gauntlet as a permanent mode, and it will not be available to play starting in Season 11.

Players have until the end of Season 10 to complete the Lifetime Challenges for Hero Mastery Gauntlet and compete on the mode’s Top 500 leaderboards.

Thanks to all of you who jumped into the Gauntlet. If you are still looking to improve your hero skills, Individual Hero Mastery Solo Courses will continue to be available, and there will be more Hero Mastery Solo Courses coming in upcoming seasons. We’ll see you in-game!

Update 2 - The Mythic Shop is back online but some players may encounter an issue where trying out a Mythic Skin doesn’t work as intended in the Practice Range. We plan to permanently fix the issue in a future patch.

Update - We have now reenabled Mythic Skins to be equipped again in matches. We are still keeping the Mythic Skin shop disabled as we continue to work on the overall issue, and we’ll update here again when the shop is open to unlock Mythic skins. Thanks for your patience!

Original Post

We are temporarily disabling all Mythic Skins as we investigate an issue discovered in today’s patch that is leading to crashes or disconnections from various matches when those skins are equipped. If you currently have any Mythic Skins equipped, you may find your heroes reverted to the default Overwatch 2 skin in your next game. You can still equip any Rare, Epic, or Legendary skin. We have also disabled the Mythic Shop until we can resolve this issue. ...

Greetings heroes,

We are updating some of our Unranked leaver penalty queue suspension times. Our goal is to adjust our queue suspension times to not be as impactful for those who may leave for reasons beyond their control, while still staying firm on those who are deliberately leaving multiple games.

  • Leaving two to three of your last 20 games played will result in a 2-minute suspension from queuing for most modes (previously 5 minutes).
  • Leaving four to five of your last 20 games played will result in a 10-minute suspension from queuing for most modes (previously 20 minutes).
  • Leaving six to nine of your last 20 games played will result in a 2-hour suspension from queuing for most modes (previously 4 hours).
  • Leaving 10 or more games of your last 20 games will still result in a 48-hour suspension from queuing for most modes.

This change does not affect leaver penalties for leaving Competitive Play matches. You can learn more...

Hey everyone, we’re working to address this issue now. See this post for details: Regarding Competitive Leaver Penalties in Season 10

Greetings heroes,

We’ve identified an issue that incorrectly penalized some players with a Season Ban after being disconnected from only a single Competitive Game on April 23rd. We have identified the issue and have prevented additional bans. We are now working to remove the Season Ban from impacted accounts. Thank you for your patience as we work to fix the issue for affected players. There is no need to start a ticket with Customer Support as they are unable overturn Competitive or Unranked leaver penalties.

To learn more about how our Leaver Penalties work, see our Season 10 Defe...

Hello there. Starting in Season 9, we moved earning bonus points at the end of the season, to the new bonus Competitive Point progression meter which rewards 100 Competitive Points for every 30 games played (with wins counting as triple progress). You can complete the progression meter up to 30 times every season, earning 3,000 points, enough to get a Jade or Golden weapon variant of your choice. You can also earn 10 points for winning games of Competitive Play as well throughout the season. Learn more about the Competitive update we introduced last season here.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, while its not intended to be restricted, you’ll need to make sure to say “Thanks” to specifically a Support hero (just like the occasional Daily challenge) to get this Challenge completed. Sorry for the confusion.

We’re working on this, basically everyone’s ready to dig into Venture’s new kit, so loading the Practice Range might be a bit slow for a little while.

Update: this is now resolved and loading the Practice Range should take the normal amount of time.

We have seen reports where players can no longer earn progress on the Competitive Point bonus progression, and we want to clarify what is going on. After you complete 30 full rounds of progression, earning a total of 3,000 bonus Competitive Points, you can no longer earn any additional Competitive Point bonuses for the remainder of the season. However, you can still earn Competitive Points when you win and draw games outside of the bonus progression. The purpose is to ensure that players are doing the best they can in every Competitive match and not just playing the mode solely to collect Competitive Points that are used to unlock Jade Weapons. Thank you for your feedback and reports, and we wish you luck as you climb the ranks for the remainder of Season 9.
