Has this ever happened to you?

  • You: “I’m a top 300 Doomfist player on Overbuff so I know what I’m talking about.”
  • Rando in your mentions: “oVeRbUfF dOeSn’T mAtTeR”

Did you know that the time lost to writing sick burns like this against people like now add up to almost 32 minutes over the last six years? This loss to humanity is far too great. The worst part is, the truth is…


That’s right. Your Overbuff rank is very important. Not only does your Overbuff rank go on your permanent record, it might even get you into the Overwatch League!

Do you think players like sayaplayer, SoOn, or even Custa would have gotten into OWL without their Overbuff rank? I mean Custa! I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure it’s like the first thing they ask you about after they ask you for your name or handle.

To prove your Overbuff rank is something that should matter to you and the rando from the internet, I even have an unlabeled chart here.


So yes, the next time someone mocks you for being pleased with your ranking, even if it’s the first day of the season, you’re gold, and you’re the only one who played enough games to get ranked so by default you’re the #1 player for 20 minutes, your Overbuff rank is very important.

Thank you.
