Recently, Blizzard Entertainment released the Overwatch 3.00 Patch notes and here’s everything you need to know about it:
New feature: Priority re-queue for collapsed games
This is the newest feature added to Overwatch through the new update. This means that you are already granted a priority requeue the next time you queue to play if a competitive game collapses due to a player leaving the game early. This feature can be seen on through a small icon on the interface and it’s especially beneficial in lowering your waiting times on queue.
