    What can we expect due to this? Region merges due to lack of players? Removal of local prices?

    Cause they want those players back and they think this will do it. I hope they are delusional.

    No, aim assist is turned off for console players playing in PC lobbies.

    I don't think it super matters, in Apex (the only game with crossplay I've experience with) the aim assist is so slight all it really does is help a PS/XB player compensate for slower reaction times. If you have bad aim it doesn't help at all. Seen videos, it's pretty negligable and spectated on my friend who plays on PS and I've never seen it make a difference lmao

    IDK how good OW's aim assist is though. It might be stronger.

    the games from HiRez already are cross-region for a long time (or rather, you can play on whateer region you want, with a global friendlist) and there hasn't really been an issue for me playing on the US or others i know, be it in Smite, Paladins or Realm Royale.
    As long the netcode is good, there will be no issue. If you have crappy netcode, even playing in your own region can feel as if you play with 500ms instead of the shown 10ms, like Masters x Masters had (already long gone, for reasons like that)
    Blizzard is definitely on the side of having good multiplayer code, so i have no doubt it wouldn't really be an issue outside of maybe the highest levels of play, but those would probably not play in other regions anyways.

    Does this mean the 200 friends limit on b-net will be extended? Assume someone has 200 friends on each server and they merge?

    Nothing to do with losing millions of users per year every year for multiple years in a row with the rate only increasing and doing the region equivalent of a server merge i'm sure.

    Player numbers, MAUs etc. are all reported globally not region by region. So lol at you. Losing "millions of players per year" also lol, it is the lifecycle of a MMO.

    Cool, love cross platform! I hope it’s like CoD WZ, where controller players play with controller player. That way as a PC player, I don’t need to worry about my console friends being matched with K&M players!

    can we please have more than 200 friends now? why is an arbitrary number still imposed on us?

    I hope this doesn't mean we'll all logon the same battlenet server. Cause we have loads of issues with that as it is - whenever there is a new something, battlenet gives up.

    I doubt it. Nobody really reads EU forums, there are parts of it when there was never a blue post ever (like proffessions section). Can you imagine the workload from them if they combine forums? On EU I think they said they only have one person, on US you can see blues post for laugh and giggles.

    Overwatch for example Farrah always had a high rank on console than PC because it is way harder to counter her with AA heroes on console, while pc u are slow moving target
    regardless i see that works only good on serious lvl for hearthstone, lag will effect any other game even hots (if they remember it in first place)
