    A lot of it is many players not understanding how punishing dying is to the team. They run off to 1 vs. 6, die for free and think the only cost is the time they personally lose running back, and meanwhile the entire team gets wiped because they were outnumbered at the objective and the entire game is lost.

    People who are not actually interested in competing as a team should not be playing Competitive, but there's nothing you can do about that, just hope for a lucky roll when the game starts.

    Had a long session last night on Xbox (mostly with a mate) and it was possibly my worst ever. On a comp/QP losing run now. The best way I can prevent losses is just playing Mercy all the time because everyone wants to fucking DPS, but at lower ranks most of them are totally incapable.

    I don't understand how so people with multiple stars on their portrait have so little gamesense.

    Also want to point out that 3-stack groups that all pick DPS can fuck off.

    Rant over, for now.

    Cunts throwing on purpose. Thats what annoys me most.

    And DPS that dont know how to dps. That ranks a close second.

    Getting sick of this game despite how fun it is.

    I'm taking a break from ninja-headshot-archer simulator 2017.

    Blizzard keeps putting me into groups that I just can't deal with. I want a nice, colorful shooter that I can unwind with. It's clear Blizzard wants to turn it into a high-skill competitive e-sports game.

    I've got DOOM and Wolfenstein on my backlog. Time to finish those.

    Population probably a problem. BB was under appreciated by the masses imo.

    Paladins is OK if you want an undemanding shooter, it's a bit vague though if you're used to OW's precise shooty type stuff (Paladins hit boxes are all massive squares not related to the model that well, the sound design is garbage, the weapons/ultimates don't 'feel' that good to use, etc etc). It's free though so, yea.

    I've seen a lot of these kinds of complaints, especially recently. I'm right there with the rest of you, to see someone pick Genji on Defense, or Hanzo, Widowmaker and Ana as solo heal in the same team drives me up the wall. I mean, there are times when I've won matches with no healers but they're few in between. A lot of people play OW like getting kills is what will help carry the team when it's really not, it's a FPS focused on teamwork, you must play as a team or you'll get steamrolled by people who do.

    My biggest grievance is people who don't see the value in grouping up, rushing to do their own thing looking for their play of the game (looking at you Widowmaker who tries to get the mid air headshot). All depends on luck of the draw if you're solo queing, which has been the case since Day 1 but at this point, you would like to think people know the basics. Still having fun with it, the characters and gameplay is too strong to make me turn away from it anytime soon.

    Having said that, I do think people care too much about their Competitive ranking which is where a lot of frustration with the game comes from. If they could maybe offer an alternate avenue for people to get golden weapons, like 3000CP or something like 10000 credits, it might make people less frustrated?

    Is the Overwatch community really that bad?

    I don't find it as bad as everyone is making out. You get a few twats, and yes someone ALWAYS picks Hanzo, but I generally find that if you go in with a positive attitude, say hi to your team, be gracious in victory / defeat etc. then you'll have a positive experience. When you come across a toxic player it's best to just laugh at them and not let them ruin the game for you.

    I got an xp penalty for quitting lastnight. I was in quick play as Lucio and got fed up with people spamming "I need healing" ad infinitum in the setup on attack. Before we've left the bloody room. Mainly Genji players. Every bloody game. I don't want to play with these pricks but I want to play the game still.

    Here's something I posted in a private group on Facebook earlier in the week, it's got worse. Must be some connection with school holidays approaching I'm sure:

    "Help needed. Some time this morning I seem to have inadvertently installed the "make all team mates cunts" mod for Overwatch on PS4. This is surprising as I didn't know Overwatch supported mods, let alone on the PS4 and also because I didn't ask for this feature. How the fuck do I get rid of it as I want to carry on playing the game sans cunts?"

    Unless your in diamond or high platinum there is seriously no point playing this game anymore. It's the most infuriating game I've played not because of the game itself but the player base!

    Not just me it seems. I think they've completely broken him and the proof is in left trigger. Left trigger as an optimum range where it explodes, you have to get it right on the money. Now it does naff all damage making it outright redundant.

    Relying on the team to kill from a hook in a game where by most cases you can't rely in a team has just turned one of my mains into a joke.

    First they reduced his hook range, then increased the cooldowns, now this. They may as well just delete him from the game.

    Is anyone still regularly playing this? I've noticed a decline from the usual Xbox crew and the thread has gotten quiet.

    My playtime has dropped right off but that's primarily because I've been busy job hunting and dipping into other games. Although I have some gripes with the game, they are longstanding issues and I still love the game.

    But in answer to your question. I still play but we haven't played together much recently because my shift patterns recently have been unsocial.

    I'm off this week due to a dodgy curry so we've played more but we've had a torrid time whereby we're matched with teams with no hint of trying to form a cohesive comp.

    What with that and my main man being nuked it's been a joyless, salt fuelled time of late.

    Yeah, I guess I should go back to good ol' Zen. Then we at least have a healer.

    You're doing it wrong though, you need to keep flashing the icon at me.

    People seem to have given up healing in low ranks on Xbox. My stats make me look like a Mercy main.

    I try Mercy but I usually end up in games whereby no one wants to anchor for me. Everyone disappears.

    I sometimes have success with Ana if we're deathballing.

    Completely agree.

    Rumours are he is getting a complete rework sometime soon.

    He sure needs it. Hog and Soldier were my 2 mains, and both had around 40 hours (I think) at the start of this season. Soldier has now doubled his playtime compared to my Hog.

    On the bright side, ive discovered im a pretty decent Winston.
