Please make sure you meet the entry requirements outlined in the specific event and you are good to go! You can find guides on how to link accounts and how to join tournaments can be found here.

What are FACEIT levels and what is my level?

FACEIT levels display your skill level on our platform. Each level is a division within our elo system, the higher elo, the higher level, the closer you are to our Challenger rank! We have a dedicated article explaining our elo system here! (link the OW2 elo system KB here)

How do I earn elo? 

Just compete in any of our competitive events! Not all events affect your elo but they are clearly marked as such. In events where your Elo is affected, you will gain elo for winning matches, and lose Elo for losing matches. You do not need to win any tournaments, just do your best and watch your progression after every match!

What is the best way to find teammates to compete with?

Your friends are more than welcome to join you on your FACEIT Overwatch 2 journey. However, if you don’t have a squad of a similar level, we have you covered!

We have made Discords for both players interested in the OWCS as well as for our Daily and WASB weekly events! There you can join our community, find similar players in our LFT channels as well as quickly access the latest information and support articles to help you!

Additionally, you will be able to directly offer suggestions and feedback to the teams responsible for the events!
