Are you ready guys? What is the SR objetive for this season?
Diamond, managed to climb from 1501 to 2500 last season, so I think with practice I can do it.
Only thing is I don't want to just one-trick my main (D.Va) for the entire season, even though it would probably make ranking up easier.

Good luck! Most important tips for competitive IMO - Mute anyone the second they become toxic, don't focus on mistakes your team might be making, just focus as hard as you can on playing your best.

Hm. Kind of makes you wonder why they call them 'placement' matches then. If SR carries over, why not just carry it over? Is there a definitive explanation of how placements and / or SR works posted anywhere?
There's nothing I like more than having a good Zarya player on my team.
Previously they dropped you by around 200 - 400 SR even if you won 50% of your placement games and had higher SR gains at the season start. They did that to make it feel like your achieving something and so that it doesn't feel like your just stuck at a particular SR. The downside of this is that it made players annoyed that they lost that much SR for seemingly no reason.
They won't do something this severe this season, so hopefully we'll have more people tryharding instead of throwing.
Finished my placement games, won 7/10 and got 2632, compared to my season 5 final rank of 2450, much better. Edited by Paradigm84 - 9/2/17 at 12:52pm
