Should Overwatch have a region lock?

General Discussion
The reason I ask is because there is a risk where people can make their way into the other region servers just to throw because their games don't matter here.

While I would hope people wouldn't be this rude, we all know how a fair amount of the playerbase work.
I'm pretty sure that the premise of this thread is false.
Stuff you do in overwatch affects all regions you play in. The only difference I've noticed is in your contact list for friends.
What do you mean "their games doesn't matter there"?
Their rank is carried over any server that they play on.

It isn't.
One of my friends is in Europe, I play with her some times - but my rank is drastically different between U.S and Europe.
I don't think it's necessarily needed since the way the servers are designed don't reward players for being further away from the data centre like PUBG for example which actually does need a region lock, but correct me if I'm wrong here.

False.

I play on US constantly, and I'm originally from EU. My rank is exactly the same.
