Starting Season 2 early presents us with a ton of challenges. I'm not sure we could realistically pull this off (and definitely not on console because of the certification time).
We are definitely going to make changes for Season 2/Season 3 switch over. We're hearing the feedback loud and clear. We're glad that you guys enjoy Competitive so much! We also appreciate your confidence in the Season 2 changes on PTR and the state of the 1.3 patch.
