Compared to the past seasons, the new system prohibits players to be ranked Gold tier upon winning five placement matches out of ten. A new calculation has been established in order for the players to get a high rank, which started with one assessment by Blizzard Entertainment.

Recent reports claim that the Gold Tier and Platinum Tier in "Overwatch" has become rather populated and crowded, with some of them being overly ranked at one point.

"Overwatch" has already went up as one of the most beloved games of the generation and as Blizzard Entertainment's first successful first-person shooter. Given the aforementioned, the company may need to keep the momentum on their side to avoid the exiting of their patrons. What do you think of Blizzard Entertainment's placement match conditions?
