In order to become eligible for Top 500 in Overwatch for Competitive Mode (Season or Arcade), you must enable a phone number on your account and play the required 25 games.
- If a single game is played without a phone number enabled, the progress towards the 25 games are forfeited and you will have to start the 25 games over
- To become eligible for Top 500, a phone number must be re-enabled and 25 games have to be played
- If a phone number is removed while in the top 500, you are instantly removed from the Top 500 leaderboards
- To allow for switching phone numbers, if no games are played after being removed from the Top 500, you can re-add a phone number, play one game, and get back into the Top 500 as long as your SR is high enough
: A phone number requirement does not apply to Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo Switch.
