Overwatch's Competitive mode completed Season 8 on Sunday, but fans will not have to wait much longer for the next season to start. Overwatch Season 9 begins at 7p.m ET Wednesday.
The end of Season 8 rewarded players with Competitive Points depending on the maximum Skill Rating they were able to end the season with. Naturally, the more SR you have, the more CP with which you will be rewarded.
Some players receive extra rewards if they placed within the Top 500 rank in their region. "
Once Overwatch Season 9 begins, players will need to complete 10 placement matches to determine what rank in which they will be placed and how much SR they receive.
