Overwatch's Competitive Mode Launches On PC Today

Good news for people who aren't terrible at Overwatch: Blizzard has announced that Overwatch's competitive mode is finally launching on PC today! The console version launches sometime next week.

As you may already be aware: the competitive mode is being divided into seasons. The first competitive season will last under two months, but the plan is to have subsequent seasons last three months.

Why PC first? Apparently the Battle.net allows Blizzard to be more agile on PC, which makes sense since Blizzard will have to make its systems work on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. Blizzard mentioned that it's hoping to be more efficient in the future with patches across all platforms to ensure parity with timeframes.

    Wooo...
    people who aren't terrible at Overwatch
    ...aww.

      It's okay, we can be terrible as a group

        Kinda ok team assemble!

          ^I kind of want in on this. If you're playing on PC add me Koystorch#1388

            We play most nights between 7pm - 11pm est

            Sure.
            Jump in to TAY too if you want, quite a bunch of us play.

              And teamspeak, don't forget that.

              Cool! I'll join in tonight if I get a chance. I usually play Reinhardt, Pharah, Junkrat and Lucio. But I am pretty flexible with who I play as (that random hero weekly brawl really helped me get a feel for everyone).

          Where Jo goes tank, healer or Junkrat

            Hey, hey. I also play, um, Mei! Occasionally.

              Like when? =P

                I said occasionally :p
                Every time I try a toon I'm not good at I quickly feel like I'm not helping the team and so switch to something I can be useful with.
                I probably do need more variety for damage though. Just haven't found a hero that really clicks yet.

                  We told you we don't mind you experimenting. If you're really worried, try them out in practise range or AI first

                Yeah, all good. I will when appropriate but I'm not the kinda player to stubbornly stay on a Mcree when the team really needs a Reinhardt you know?

                  No, this team needs a McCree. It's everyone else's fault for sucking! =P
                  We're not playing competitive and we don't really care if we lose

        CHEERS LOVE, THE CAVALRY'S HERE!

        CHEERS LOVE, THE CAVALRY'S HERE!

          It never stops when @cj is on

            FOOKIN CHEERS MATE, CHEEKY NANDOS WOT!!

    Aren't Aussies still stuck being routed to US servers? No good playing competitive with 200+ ping!

      Play as Torbjorn Turrets have no ping!

      Not had that issue myself, think it's just a few peeps.

        I think it's more that it's just a random issue. I was being connected to US constantly over the last weekend but it didn't happen before that and hasn't again since.

    I'm late 20's, play casually but decent. I actually change heroes as needed ! Heal or tank and play any hero. LemonMule#6216 On PC if you want another on your team occasionally

    We can make a Kotaku team lol, I'm very similar to others, Jack of all trades, expert of none, happy to change classes as needed

    Any Ps4 players? My psn name is
    Friendlyyoungmen

    If you want some good ol' Lucio heals add: gravy#12394
