So I’ve been playing Overwatch for quite a while, however, I can’t seem to see lots of improvement overtime. I’m a platinum player, and I play it using Bootcamp on my Mac. I would like to ask a few questions:
(1) I have a 4K monitor, but I cannot play OW at 4K, and since this is an Apple Screen, the 4K monitor is a ‘glue of two’ displays, this is a weird Apple design, but it worked for purposes. I cannot play OW at 4K, whatsoever, so I have to settle with 1080p, does playing the game at a non-native resolution cause any significant disadvantages? If so, how, and why so?
(2) I’m a player from South East Asia, and my input lag has always remained in the top 15ms, and I can’t seem to reduce this no matter what I do. Would reducing the input lag, say, help me aim better? I want to know what exactly is hampering my ability to aim and improve.
(3) I play on EU servers, and my latency is around 180~230ms, lots of people tell me that OW is different, since the moment it registers a hit on my screen, it’s a “guaranteed hit no matter what.” However, this isn’t true, there are plenty of times, both in controlled situations (training) and otherwise, where I hit targets with Genji’s blade, but nothing happens, other than it giving me the false impression that it hit the target. I know the ideal ping should be as low as possible, but what is the usual ping for those who wish to climb the ladder and are playing beyond platinum?
