I just found out Overwatch competitive rewards are based on your season high and not current standing. I would have been more aggressive if I would have known.

Not only that, but it will give people that prefer that format something to hone their skills in between seasons. Plus competitive matches are longer so you gain more XP overall, even if its a double blow out. As fun as it is to crush the other team quickly in QP, you generally get a laughable PoTG, and little XP.
That would be amazing but I doubt it'll happen. QP competitive mode would be the equivilant of solo queue for GW2 ranked. They'll never implement it because it would make the queues alot longer for the regular ranked mode. Even with Overwatch's massive user base a QP competitive mode would suck away a good chunk of users out of the matchmaking for regular competitive. As soon as the game starts to get a 3-5 minute queue for a competitive match people will assume the game is dying and move onto another game or go for QP only.
Nah, it wouldn't change anything. COD has multiple game modes and they've never had any issues. Overwatch has a COD sized player base right now as well. I remember one of the CODs had 2 different TDMs and it didn't effect either one. GW2 suffers because of its casual nature. Overwatch is built around PVP.
