Today begins the second season of StarCraft: Remastered! If you’ve played through Season 1, you’ll know what to expect.
You’ll have five placement matches that you’ll need to complete. After finishing these, you will be placed in a rank based on the following rank ranges.
These ranges will only apply to players who complete their placement matches within the first two weeks of the new season. Afterwards, we will move to a percentage-based system, similar to the one we used in Season 1.
We are also making a change to the placement algorithm which will now heavily favor your performance from the last season when deciding your rank for the current season.
A new season also means new rewards! The Archon is our featured unit for the season, and we’re also using Protoss themed portrait borders this time.
For the best of the best we have a new animated portrait, bestowed to those who achieve S rank during Season 2.
Season 2 is live right now. Jump in and start earning those later points. Season 2 will last until January 31, 2019. GLHF!
