Overwatch's Season 4 Ends on May 29th, 2017. Seems like Blizzard decided to extend their 2 and a half months model and shorten the offseason!
When Does Overwatch Season 5 Start?
Season 5 starts a couple of days after the Season 4 end, meaning on June 1st, 2017.
Season 4 Changes
If you're 3000+ rating, you need to play at least 7 games a week in order not to decay. When you complete a game, you push back a delay by 24 hours and you can bank up to 7 games. You can complete 7 games in a day if you'd like and be safe for a week. (UPDATE: This has been later changed to 5 games per week)
It is now harder to get 4500-5000 and drop from 500-0.
To be eligible for Top 500 end season rewards, you need to be in the Top 500 when the clock hits season end.
Until now, stalling an attack by repeatedly throwing yourself at the point has been a common defensive strategy on Assault, Escort, and Assault/Escort maps—even when the attackers have a decisive advantage. They implemented a respawn time delay that’s activated when the attackers outnumber the defenders on a contested point. If the point hasn’t been captured and the defense hasn’t regained the advantage after a specified time, the defender respawns timer will slowly begin to increase until it hits a maximum value. If the defense manages to gain the upper hand, the timer resets to zero.
