    Season 8 is LIVE!

    Just finished my placement matches last night. Still in Bronze, but my second-highest placement to date (Season 1 was my best - placed in middle Silver).

    What about all of you? I'm pretty sure that I remember seeing that a lot of you are plat/diamond in previous seasons. Way to go!

    I'm gold from almost 3 seasons now and nevertheless last season didnt played almost at all besides the placements, so i guess i'll still try to get that plat this season too. Just did 2 of my placements which got really good, and im about to finish them soon.

    I got 1871 so high silver. I thought the placements went really well and I myself did really good. Unfortunately that was not reflected in my placement. A few seasons ago I got around 2300 and have been Gold most of the time, and could compete at that level so I know I'm better than this.

    I was a Mercy main until season 6, and happy with high Gold. Since they changed her mechanics, I've not gone back into competitive, I think I'll be playing more Moira (so remaining as a support main), but I didn't feel I'd had enough experience with her to dive right into Comp. Hoping I've got enough now to do it with season 8, will likely start placements this weekend.

    Maybe I'll actually take the time to place this season again, I skipped the last one after feeling super frustrated with my son. lol

    Honestly, this is probably my best Season if Placement matches, I believe I was 7 or 8 wins out of 10 matches. (Pretty sure it was 8wins) and I was placed in 2756SR, Which was my Season High for Season 7(Finished S7 with 2619SR)

    Lowkey don't mean to sound rude but I thought @PT.Singer @BboySurf would be Plat/Diamond xD
    My Sniper only "smurf" acc ranked pretty low this Season. i think around 2.6-2.7k SR. S7 was 2911 SR / S6 was 3088 SR i believe.

    And my new account to play only heros i'm bad with ended up in mid gold @2.3k SR

    Anyways. On Main account, I'm currently at 2818 SR, (Currently at this Season's High) and aiming to get into Diamond for once xD Don't understand how my Snipers Only acc ranked higher than my main acc T-T #SadLaifu.

    I'm now a bit higher at 2129. It's awesome when you get to play with people that want to win. Still no new catgirl skin though! :-(

    I was able to reach up to 2980 doing so well. Then Blizzard was like, hmmm -matches you up with throwers- gg ....
    dropped back down to 2910 and wanted to try to win a few just last night. matches were alright, no throwers, downside was all these low levels ALWAYS on my team ._. not even smurfs too Dx so I had a few 1 trick heros players and currently am 2862 :c
    If anyone ever wants to play lol feel free to hit me up
    BrianRevy #1581 - Main (High Plat)
    BrianRevy #1324 - Snipers only Acc (High Gold)
    BrianRevy #1967 - New account to mess around with (mid gold)

    I personally wouldn't really consider Season 6's Season High (If Obtained through placement matches) + a few after that to count much. since Season 6 was where they basically Reset the MMR so you weren't capped or limited to how much you gain through previous Season's Finishing SR.
    Not saying this is for everyone, but from my matches played, a lot of players who just finished their placements didnt deserve to be playing at that rank, since they were causing more loses for players. It's why in the Last season and this season's placement (7&8) the placements only got you near you're previous season's finishing SR.

    Nice ! I'm currently still trying to climb up there.
    But I was only saying in general. Season 6's Seaon High for majority weren't actually there season high. Too many were placed higher than their rank and end up dropping back down, dragging along players who are actually trying hard to rank up.

    I agree with you,i think in general people who rank up for the first time can get placed at high elo even if that does not reflect their real skill, btw my account in overwatch is Mitochondria#21219

    I placed at 2770 this season and then played with my son and his friends which dropped me down to 24XX, so I need to work to get back up to where I was before I can start climbing again.

    Placed last night, got 2783.
    Highest placement so far but meh, I'm too bust working on my rank in PUBG
    top 0.11% there. That would be top 500 compared to OW.
