By Kurtis Chan on May 17, 2017

Season 4 of Overwatch Competitive Play is coming to an end soon as Blizzard has finally announced the official end date and time as of when will the season end.

As the Overwatch Community could not stop asking when will the season end, Overwatch Principal Designer, Scott Mercer decided to break the silence by announcing the end date of Season 4. "We are indeed adding a countdown to the current competitive season's end in an upcoming patch. In the meantime, I can let you know that Season 4 will end on May 29 at 0:00 UTC. We decided to have a shorter amount of "offseason" time without competitive play as compared to previous seasons," Mercer replied in the Overwatch Forum.

To refresh your mind, here are the rewards that you will be getting at the end of the season, which includes a Hanamura themed spray, a Hanamura themed player icon and Competitive Points for you to spend on Golden weapons. For players who are ranked in the Top 500 when the season ends, they will be awarded with a special Hanamura themed moving spray. Here is a list of how much Competitive Points you are rewarded in each rank based on Season High.

  • SR 1-1499 (Bronze): 100 CP
  • SR 1500-1999 (Silver): 200 CP 
  • SR 2000-2499 (Gold): 400 CP
  • SR 2500-2999 (Platinum): 800 CP
  • SR 3000-3499 (Diamond): 1200 CP 
  • SR 3500-3999 (Master): 2000 CP 
  • SR 4000-5000 (Grandmaster): 3000 CP

Season 5 of Overwatch Competitive Play will commence around June 1 as mentioned by Overwatch Game Director, Jeff Kaplan previously, but no exact date has been unveiled yet. There are exactly 12 days left for you to grind and get your SR and rank as high up as you can to obtain a better reward for participating in Competitive Play. For those who are currently unranked this season and you want that additional Competitive Points, make sure to complete all ten of your placement games as your rank will only be determined after all ten games are completed.
