Exciting changes for Season 4
- Prizes: As mentioned above, the winning team in NA Gold division will receive $450 worth of prizes donated by Blizzard and GamerSupps. 
- Official South America expansion: We are excited to have added BlackClaud-1533 to our Admin Team to run our new South American division.
- New NA Silver division: This season we're adding a Silver division for North America to better segment teams and ensure good competition. Division order will be Gold-Silver-Steel.
- New default match nights for North America: Gold = Wednesday and Silver/Steel = Thursday. This was done in an effort to not split our casting viewership by having everything on the same night.
- Recruiting: This season we've added a new feature that makes finding players for your team even easier! Players can now set a Recruitment Status on their profile to let you know they are looking for a team. Other players can then post comments about that player and their experience right on their profile. All players actively looking for a team will be displayed in a new Recruiting page sorted by comp SR.
- New Discord server: This new server is dedicated solely to UGC Overwatch and should make it easier for teams to use all the features such as scrim finder, recruiting sections and our Twitch bot.
- Match highlights: This season we are planning to start a new Match Highlights series on Youtube. If you did something awesome in your UGC match and want everyone to see it, head over to our submission page and send it our way!
- More match casting: This season we are planning to add more casters to our roster so that we can cover a wider variety of matches.
