Beating Performance-Based SR Systems | Overwatch

Beating Performance-Based SR Systems isn't impossible, it just takes a bit of time and knowledge. Afterall, its not is going anywhere. Heck even Beating Performance-Based SR SystemsHoTS is now getting it. So as one of the mere mortals playing this game, trying to rank up, I realised that I needed to understand the system and use it to my advantage.

I've been playing competitive since launch, and for the first three seasons I was in plat. The next three seasons (s4-s6) I touched diamond and just stopped competitive until the following season.

For most of those 6 seasons, I mained Zarya (later picked up Winston) because in general teams could always use tanks, and Zarya had a game winning ult. If I managed to get DPS, I'd go 76. The first time I hit diamond required quite a bit of effort and some luck. S5 and S6 was easier to touch diamond and then afk for the rest of the season.

I hated the performance-based SR. I hated the matchmaking. I hated smurfs. I hated Mercy mains for being able to swing the game result so drastically. If they play Mercy, we have a good chance to win, if they don't, we're screwed. (Disclaimer: I do admit there were some who could flex to a mean Rein or Genji, but rare. On that note, when the opponents had 2-3 mercy mains, two of them always seem to be GM McCree smurfs. Because of all this, I realized I needed to find a way to consistently go about Beating Performance-Based SR Systems.
