Last night I was watching a really good player doing a Bronze to GM live stream for his YouTube channel and he was on such a long win streak that he was getting ~150 SR per game. He's a GM player, though, so think of all the games he has ruined for low level players along the way that can't compete with him.

Right now, a lost streak of just 4-5 games can put you so far down in SR that it could take you over a week to earn it back. You can actually go like 25-10 on a day of games and end up with lower SR than where you started because the losses were in streaks. That's stupid.

Overwatch is fun, but it has a long way to go to truly be competitive.

since this thread began, I went from 2710 to 2546 and spent all week catching up since my losses were in streaks. I'm almost caught up.

I understand the reasoning behind the streaks, but maybe they could scale it back.
fuck, it's not my fault, he threw nacho cheese on me.
