All Hail Jeff Kaplan!

Did you have plans for this weekend? Looks like you’ll have to cancel. Were you going to meet your in-laws? Tell them you have to reschedule.

Overwatch is pulling out one last celebration for their anniversary event. From 8 June to 12 June is your chance to grind for that shiny silver border. Does it make you a better player? Maybe not. But that border looks pretty swanky. Don’t you think so, Jeff?

When they mean Double the XP, they really mean DOUBLE the XP. So that means all the aspects that contribute to your experience gain is doubled. That includes:

  • Time you spent in a match
  • Match completion
  • Consecutive matches
  • Winning a match
  • Backfilling
  • Medal bonuses

But your first win of the day will remain at 1500 XP, unfortunately.
If want to know the exact time for the XP boost to apply, check out the picture below:

Happy Grinding!
