Take SR out for Season 9 placements. Use MMR instead.

Competitive Discussion
I've been lurking around competitive seasons since Season 2. So far the placements have done little to no good for me. Regardless of my placement score, I always end up between 1900 and 2100 SR at the start of the season.

I've been facing a lot of matches and started to review my personal performance in matches. From positioning to my hero pool I'd assume my personal score has improved. I'm currently close to reaching 2300SR, Which will also mark a new carreer High.

Last Season I ended around 2267SR as my Final SR. The following season I DROPPED 290SR and spent this season trying to climb back up to my last season score. After weeks of playing, I finally reached a new carreer high.

I fear next season will punish me yet again and force me back down to 1900-2100 regardless of my placements, since I feel the placements are just for show in some way. I can play with high platinum players and score a decent amount of performance medals and STILL end up in silver for some unfair and pseudo placement reason.

Can we get a fresh start. Disregard the SR score from all previous seasons and match people equally based on their MMR instead. This way the matchup should end up being more fair and the placements will feel justified. and If I do drop back to 2100SR. I guess I have to do some more research and maybe come to terms that I'm just not that good at this game.
Yeah I don’t know why they even need a hidden MMR and an SR. It comes off very shady and allows them to meddle with matches in ways we can’t see.
People are always (including placements) matched on MMR, not SR.

However, based on your post, I suspect you might not understand what MMR is. See https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20761096463 for a more complete explainer.

Every time someone brings up questions about MMR/SR, this guy shows up. I am beginning to think he's a plant.
You guys really don't understand how math works?
