Competitive Play rewards Edit

Current rewards Edit

Competpoints blackborder 15 are earned for every Competitive match won, and Competpoints blackborder 5 are earned for every draw/tie match instead. From Season 6, the length of a season was reduced to 2 months, thus lead to an increase in the amount of Competitive Points.

At the end of each Competitive Season, there is an end-of-season reward in Competitive Points, which depends on the highest skill tier the player reached in that season. Starting Season 6, Competitive Points amount gained at the end of the season is determined based on skill rating as following:

  • Bronze: Competpoints blackborder 65
  • Silver: Competpoints blackborder 125
  • Gold: Competpoints blackborder 250
  • Platinum: Competpoints blackborder 500
  • Diamond: Competpoints blackborder 750
  • Master: Competpoints blackborder 1200
  • Grandmaster: Competpoints blackborder 1750

Former reward Edit

In Season 1, there was a different Competitive Point mechanic for Competitive matches: Competpoints blackborder 1 was earned for every match won. Competitive Points amount gained at the end of the season had been determined based on player's rating as follows:

  • Skill rating 0-39: Competpoints blackborder 10
  • Skill rating 40-45: Competpoints blackborder 20
  • Skill rating 46-49: Competpoints blackborder 40
  • Skill rating 50-52: Competpoints blackborder 60
  • Skill rating 53-55: Competpoints blackborder 80
  • Skill rating 56-59: Competpoints blackborder 120
  • Skill rating 60-64: Competpoints blackborder 200
  • Skill rating 65+: Competpoints blackborder 300

Since the removal of Sudden Death and the implementation of draw result in Season 2, there were entirely new mechanics for Competitive Point rewards, which were: Competpoints blackborder 10 was earned for every Competitive match won, and Competpoints blackborder 3 was earned for every draw/tie match. Competitive Points amount gained at the end of the season had been determined based on player's rating as follows:

  • Bronze: Competpoints blackborder 100
  • Silver: Competpoints blackborder 200
  • Gold: Competpoints blackborder 400
  • Platinum: Competpoints blackborder 800
  • Diamond: Competpoints blackborder 1200
  • Master: Competpoints blackborder 2000
  • Grandmaster: Competpoints blackborder 3000

This reward system again was changed in Season 6, to the current reward system above.

Competitive Arcade rewardsEdit

During certain seasonal events, relevant arcade modes will sometimes receive a competitive variant. Like the standard counterpart, players must complete placement matches to receive a rank, and will receive points for both victories and at the end of season.

As events are shorter than seasons, the placement rewards are reduced as a result. Additionally, due to the format of the matches, games last only one round and tied games will always go to Sudden Death; as a result, victorious players only receive Competpoints blackborder 4.

Copa Lúcioball Edit

Copa Lúcioball was the first competitive arcade game, which was a variation of Lúcioball first introduced in Summer Games 2017, and ran for three weeks. Excluding Grandmaster placements, points were capped at ~40% of the Season 5 Competitive Play rewards:

  • Bronze: Competpoints blackborder 40
  • Silver: Competpoints blackborder 75
  • Gold: Competpoints blackborder 150
  • Platinum: Competpoints blackborder 300
  • Diamond: Competpoints blackborder 450
  • Master: Competpoints blackborder 750
  • Grandmaster: Competpoints blackborder 1750

Competitive CTF Edit

The second Competitive Arcade game was Competitive CTF, which was introduced for Lunar New Year 2018. Due to the aforementioned reduction of season lengths and placement rewards, the competitive points cap was indirectly raised to ~60% of those awarded in normal Competitive:

  • Bronze: Competpoints blackborder 40
  • Silver: Competpoints blackborder 75
  • Gold: Competpoints blackborder 150
  • Platinum: Competpoints blackborder 300
  • Diamond: Competpoints blackborder 450
  • Master: Competpoints blackborder 750
  • Grandmaster: Competpoints blackborder 1000

Hard cap Edit

There is a hard cap for Competitive Points at Competpoints blackborder 6000. This means players will stop receiving Competitive Points once they reach Competpoints blackborder 6000. Players with more than Competpoints blackborder 6000 will no longer accrue Points until they are spent, however, end-of-season Competitive Point rewards will still be granted for players at the hard cap.
