Players could not find a solution for this bug, however, a Reddit thread created by u/legal-example-2789 seemed to have a fix for this bug.

Blizzard has also addressed this issue in their latest update, here is a detailed look at the relevant section from the patch notes:


  • Many players were ranked too low during the first week of Overwatch 2, so we are implementing a boost as players continue to play games for those affected by this issue.
  • Players who were ranked too low could have the feeling of being stuck in this rank. Moving forward, players should be able to climb the ranks in their first rank update, assuming they’re supposed to be higher based on their performance.
  • Players who haven’t ranked will not experience this issue after this patch.

So, hopefully, our fixes will help you solve the issue until Blizzard releases a fix for all the concurrent problems. Follow our Overwatch 2 guides for more tips and tricks.
