Overwatch 1 players who have recently tuned into Overwatch 2 since its release on October 4th are growing concerned as the devs seem to be gradually erasing the rank history of all the players.
The news was first brought to light by Twitch streamer ‘EeveeA’, who claimed in a Tweet that only the competitive data for the past six ranked seasons would be kept moving forward.
“From Season S1 of OW1 to Season 30 of OW1, all of that data is gone,” the Mercy main said. “Come S7 of OW2, your OW2 S1 data will be gone.”
She further mentioned that while she knew this information for a week, she was unable to say anything as she would be breaking an NDA.
“They refused to let me warn people to record their OW1 data before OW2 launch,” EeveeA said. “And before I started expressing the issues with it, they said no problems with this data being gone.
Needless to say, the Overwatch 2 community isn’t very happy about this decision by Blizzard Entertainment. Fans throughout the world have expressed their disappointment at their ranked accomplishments being slowly removed from the game as time progresses.
At the time of writing, Blizzard hasn’t made a statement regarding this issue.
