    Worst time to place is the last week as people are trying to boost/place before end of season. Tons of mediocre players from QP/Arcade will be on to get closer to gold guns etc and there will be throwers, leavers and 0 mic use.

    Living in Perth I would normally solo queue on Singapore servers as Blizzard in their wisdom would put me there because Perth-Singapore[pse1] (49ms) is clearly superior to Perth-Sydney[pse2] (52ms). Now that I changed my ISP I ping to Sydney 50 vs 51 to Singapore so last couple of weeks been playing exclusively on Oz servers and a couple observations about Plat/low Diamond:

    1. Comms are clearly better as everyone speaks English (when they speak)
    2. Fewer griefers/throwers. Not significantly but noticeable.
    3. More smurfs. Almost every day I play vs or with someone in comp who clearly doesn't belong.
    4. Overall this level feels weaker than on Singapore. High Plat games on Aus feel like high Gold on Singapore, DPS and healers more so, tanks less so.
    5. Worse matchmaking as it seems like there are fewer players overall. In plat I never matched with Masters on pse1, now I play with them almost every day.

    Yeah the only time when we actually got some decent matchmaking in high level was when the overwatch worldcup going on. I play lucio exclusively and rank in 3.7k and play with top 500 feels great. The game feels very high skill, you lose when you lost focus for a bit. Sadly the matchmaking was extremely short and on top of it the server down/boot to US fiasco I only get to play ~5 games like that. Your view on plat Aus is not wrong. I used to q in US only due to low level Aus play but 200ms is hard to stay competitive. Didnt know ocau got overwatch thread til now. :D

    So Dva is getting Nerf/Buffed

    Defence matrix is getting shortened but she'll get rockets to fire too so the idea is to make her more aggressive and less of an ult-eater

    ooh a bit of burst damage would really help Dva i think. Just need to hope the matrix is still long enough to not ruin her ridiculous survivability.

    With these changes I get the feeling we may see a swing away from Dva and Rein making a comeback (especially after his patch).

    I'm betting I'll be more Rein/Zarya again which is fine by me.

    If anyone here has a gold account and needs help getting it to platinum shoot me a pm.

    EDIT: not asking to be paid or anything dodgy just looking to help people.

    Mercy and DVa changes live on the PTR.

    Dva looks like she's going to be huge fun and Mercy will almost play like an entirely different character I think.

    This will be interesting as my entire season 5 career in mid-high gold tier (lol yeah I know) has been built on Mercy and Dva. Mostly Mercy tbh but I play in a mobility(??) style Mercy. Not a 1-trick hide/res but not a full on battle mercy either. Just bounce around the battle field on GA damage boosting/healing and trying not to get shot.
