This change will allow gamers to not worry to much on the numbers and focus on the fighting the best players in "Overwatch" of to date. Gamers can now focus on obtaining "Overwatch" tiers, of which it will be seven in season 2. Once the player reach a particular tier, they will not drop out immediately, event if their skill rating goes down. A drawback for top three tiers is that they will slowly lose skills if they do not log in to "Overwatch" for a week at a time.

Players with vastly different skill ratings will not be able level up, and they will need to play at least 50 matches in a season to break into the top 500. This is prevent them from winning a few lucky matches and then retiring on a perfect win record to squat idly at the top of the rankings in "Competitive Mode.

Lastly, Blizzard will drop the "Sudden Death" and "Coin Toss " rules in "Competitive Mode" season 2 and everything is being multiplied by ten, meaning gamers can get ten times the points, but everything costs ten times more in "Overwatch", VG 24/7 reported.

In other news, Blizzard is planning to have a high bandwith option for the servers in "Overwatch's" custom game. It will be conducted in the coming weeks in beta phase and results will depend on the gamer's feedback. If the beta gain positive feedback, then Blizzard will add new game modes for "Overwatch".

The purpose of the high bandwith in "Overwatch" is to adjusts the game’s client update rate from 21 updates per second to 63 updates per second. This reduces the amount of time the players complete an action and when their client hears back about the result, which in turn will help make the game feel more responsive.

Finally, new clues on Sombra's inclusion to the roster has been revealed as the group known simply as Game Detectives uncovered a Skull Code in "Overwatch" indicating that Sombra is coming soon.

Gamers noticed that certain frames in the promotional video for the "Summer Games" seemed to have arrows pointing them in a certain direction. The detectives created a compass of sorts by arranging the heroes’ images in accordance with the directions.

Kaplan was asked by fans about the compass during a livestream chat and stated that is sounds like deep CIA level stuff and way above their heads. The gaming fans arrived at Dorado stage and found a code in the sky, but were not able to find out what its is. Blizzard step up to help them and they found out a new message read that says; “The answer isn’t over your heads, it’s behind you. Sometimes, you need to analyze your previous achievements.”

This led to the gaming fans coming across a skull picture after deciphering the URL code and that Sombra could be based in Dorado, Gamerant reported. Sombra in the game will be a stealth based hero.

Previous reports revealed that a new "Overwatch" short will premier in Gamescom 2016 and it will feature Bastion's journey.

"Overwatch" is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms.
