Overwatch Season 12 of Competitive Play ended last Sunday on PS4, Xbox One and PC but thankfully, the offseason has lasted just a few days as Blizzard prepare to start the competitive Season 13 later today.
Officially the Overwatch Competitive season 13 kicks off on Thursday, November 1 at midnight, UK time.
In addition to the above it's worth remembering that if you completed your placement matches during Season 12, you will be eligible to receive a special spray and player icon.
These will be unlocked automatically when you log into your account the first time since the end of season 12. So if you've yet to do so since Sunday, your reward is waiting.
If you placed within the Top 500 players on your platform (and in your region) at the end of the season, youll also receive an extra player icon and animated spray on top of the other seasonal rewards.
Heres the Skill Rating (SR) to Competitive Point (CP) breakdown for Season 12:
SR 1-1499 (Bronze): 65 CP
SR 1500-1999 (Silver): 125 CP
SR 2000-2499 (Gold): 250 CP
SR 2500-2999 (Platinum): 500 CP
SR 3000-3499 (Diamond): 750 CP
SR 3500-3999 (Master): 1200 CP
SR 4000-5000 (Grandmaster): 1750 CP
It's also confirmed that the same amount of Competitive Points will be rewarded to players during the upcoming Season 13 of competitive play.
Will Blizzard unveil Hero 29 this weekend? (Pic: BLIZZARD)
Looking forward though it's going to be an interesting few days for Overwatch players with Blizzcon 2018 coming this weekend on November 2-3.
Blizzcon 2018 starts this Friday at the Anaheim Convention Center in California and could see the reveal of several big Overwatch events.
Whilst we're sure to see some Overwatch League info unveiled, but its possible the team could also reveal something about the games next character; Overwatch Hero 29.
It certainly makes sense as well. The Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan said recently that Blizzcon 2018 won't see a new map released.
However, there is some “awesome” new content coming soon.
Coupled with the fact we're slowly edging towards that magical three-month period since the team revealed Wrecking Ball.
And as fans will know, Overwatch Hero's normally arrive every three months throughout the year.
Season 13 launches tonight, but there's plenty of news just beyond the horizon.
