Overwatch 2 Elo FAQ

WHAT IS A SKILL LEVEL?

Skill levels are directly linked to Elo ratings, which span from 100 to infinity and serve as a reflection of a player's perceived skill and game knowledge. The idea behind pairing players with similar Elo ratings is to create evenly matched-games.

The brackets of Elo differ depending on the game but skill levels range from 1.png to  10.png. The Challenger rank is achieved by the top 1000 players at level 10.

LEVEL CALIBRATION

When users register the game on the platform, their latest OW2 Rank is synchronized with their FACEIT Elo.

Once your account is linked to a FACEIT profile it cannot be removed or linked to another account.

HOW IS ELO ADJUSTED ON FACEIT?

Elo is subject to change through wins and losses in matches on FACEIT, where the amount gained or lost is linked to your team's perceived likelihood of winning. Access to advanced statistics displayed in the graph below requires a Premium or FACEIT Plus subscription.

SEEDING 

Seeding in our OWCS and other OW2 tournaments is a method used to rank participants or teams based on certain criteria, such as past performance or skill level, in order to create fair matchups and ensure competitive balance throughout the tournament.

Each team participating in the tournament is assigned an Elo rating based on its performance.
