    Placements went horrible. Went 2-6-2 started out at 1900. Immediately went on a 12 game win streak and am now back up around my 2500 norm.

    Now the games are pretty balanced but still winning more than I lose when people play a reasonable fucking comp.

    I'm not a huge fan of this DVA Reinhardt Roadhog 76 lucio zenyatta meta though.

    Dva needs a nerf to her shield if they are going to keep her health so high.she just can't be killed. It has to be obvious to Blizzard.

    I kill DVA all the time playing Soldier.
    5-1 so far in placements

    Because 76 is just as OP. They buffed him quite a bit. They need to rework both I can't remember a game that didn't have a DVA and 76 against a DVA 76.

    You know those awards are meaningless if OW won esport of the year.

    And I don't think soldier is OP, he's just the only DPS that's balanced well to deal with OP tanks.

    Gotta play the meta, but those two heroes definitely have the lowest skill involved.

    Huh? 76 would be the highest skill ceiling choice in the current meta. I think you just mean they are both forgiving characters since they sustain easily.

    I meant as in ease of use and skill involved to be effective playing them.

    Finished placement matches 8-2 (one loss being a member dropping out after going up 1-0). Got a 2210 skill rating.

    How do they calculate this? lol

    Zarya still a beast, rein still necessary and awesome.

    The skill rating overwatch gave me is not fair to the people I play against. I feel bad demolishing every single game. Their placement system needs work.

    You'll move up accordingly, and as you do it'll get harder and harder. I had a huge fall the last 2 days, but thanks to Super Vegeta I'm back where I probably should be. That said, I still need about 200 more for no other reason than to have the diamond insignia next to my name.

    By design. This season they said you'd likely place lower and move up quicker after last season way too many placed platinum than should have.

    I noticed that. Moved up a few hundred, and I still play well individually, but I'm actually losing every other game now.

    I've yet to have a game with dva, win or lose, where i end with less than 3 medals and atleast 1 gold.

    The hero is insane. Her ult being weak is the only drawback.

    If D.Va is in closer quarters and hitting her damage is legit, and if she's hitting headshots up close, she can melt most characters pretty quickly.

    I feel your pain man. 2000-2500ish is a fucking disaster. No one wants to play rein, zenyatta doesn't heal, 1900 sr hanzos all over. So much worse than season 2. Just filled with ass. I've got 42 games in comp, 87 gold medals, 29 cards. 16 points better than I started the season rn.
