Overwatch is one heck of an excellent game, and playing it competitively can be quite the challenge. Having a superior high skill rating will take you plenty of time, you will need to understand the game, and you will need some serious patience. The ranking system is more complicated than most other online games, which include the fact it has ranking systems, and going from one to the next, is difficult. Overall it can be a complicated task to get ahead in Overwatch, so this blog post will try and explain how to get ranked easier.
Ranking System & Tiers

These are more fun based games than highly competitive levels. Once you have accomplished level 25, you can enter the competitive option from the “play” menu. You will go through 10 matches which will determine your beginning rank. The matchmaking system is aligned to wins and losses more so than kills or deaths. This means be the best team player you can be to get further ahead.

You can build a team which gives you the ability to play the role you wish to be. If you play as a group you will be matched with other groups. Be sure to work on your team building and group play. You will go against other groups who are more than likely synergistic with each other too. Having fun in Overwatch is imperative and having a great team will boost your results. You’ll gain more SR points which will bring you higher up the tiers of ranking.

You will want to have your team strategize on maps, use specific game modes and utilize your players and their best abilities. Knowing your group, it’s strengths
