    Well that depends


    are you good at attack torb?

    Note that lahis ban was for playing only 1 char no matter the team or situation not making a bad pick

    He's pretty viable even on attack. Even on payload maps. Most people see Torb and just tunnel away from the turret and Torb and let him have free reign on them. Seen it in too many matches =/

    So e.g it seems taking bastion then emidiatly being countered by genji then switching to junk with a pharah out isn't banable just stupid unless ur fantastic at junk w/e

    But if I was to always play bastion every game never switching no matter what that's toxic and banable

    Read lahis post ffs

    In case you can't be bothered lahis posted a shot of the account action taken against then for always playing widow. Playing the same char and never switching is aparantly seen by blizz as toxic.

    Something I agree with as blizz stated in there message to lahis it's a team game. It's nice to see them rooting out the cause of players being tilted instead of just playing wakamole with tilted players who have snapped and express it in chat

    It's a but like widow. You may like her but unless your a fantastic widow with 70-80% accuracy and getting picks nearly every shot being on a char that isn't optimal for pushing onto an objective your making it harder for your team.

    You have 5 other team mates who want to win and are counting on each outher to play to win in comp by being a selfish player your at best making the game harder and at worst throwing the game for 5 other real people.

    I notice this alot especially with kids, a very selfish mentality to team games "it's my free time it's my game blah blah" sorry but that wouldent wash at your local a mature football club so it won't wash in any team game. Play for your team not your self
    I like how the characters you personally don't like are expected to way out perform anyone else in the group just because you don't like them or have the opinion that are not good. You could say you cant play any tanks then cos reaper counters all tanks so if they have a reaper you would have to play a pure dps and support team then?

    Is it not selfish of you to demand players to pick what you like or prefer who is the captain of the ship? Its good to know I cant get banned for playing torb even if everyone else in the team doesn't want me to

    I haven't played in a while so I just worked from the assumption that because of having to constantly relocate the turret that it would be sub-optimal to play him on attack but I suppose that is something a skilled player can work with.

    You can read lahis post. Also I'm not demanding you play anything I'm not says u must play junk or you must play pharah you will find people are saying don't play torb because he's poor on attack and your making the game harder for the 5 others that have to be grouped with you and yes that is a selfish very selfish toxic thing to do so no wonder you get called shit for it and as lahis shows possibly get a ban

    Also there are no chricture I don't like each char has a niche they excellent at I don't expect any one to out perform the group it's nice if they do but what I do expect is that they can preform at the same level of the group that's not a big ask.

    And 1 reaper dosent counter every tank. As road hog counters reaper and 2 that's why u have communication in a team if the enemy picks reaper to screw your rhine but you still need that rhine for your team then some one should switch to a reaper counter to cover your rhine. That dosent work for torb as you don't need a Torb especially on attack you do need a tank though. I'd do the same to cover a mercy

    Stop using your bias to read between my lines and put words in my mouth just to defend your selfish attitude, poor play and poor team work. Grow up.

    But w/e I don't need to convince you to play better as lahis post shows you keep playing that way and you won't be bothering any one eventually

    - - - Updated - - -

    As lahis post shows you have a 12hr silence ahead of you, failure to correct you behaviour will net you a 24hr then 48 then 72hr silence. Continually failing to change your behaviour after action has been taken against your about will net you a ban starting at 12hr then 24 e.t.c till it's permanent. I know that process intimately from my days camping lowbies in vanilla wow. By the 48hr ban I got the message luckily

    playing torjb in attack isn't trolling? even bastion can work 'better', also still trolling
    and how exactly u playing torb in attack ? putting new turret every 0.5 sec of moving ? put it on top of payload ? or u were trying to compete on a point ?
    depend on map, torb for attack can be seriously trolling

    what ability/tool in his kit exactly helps u attack a point ? this is like picking symmetra for 'healing'
    if he is on def i can understand but on attack wtf can he do ? wait for rein shield to build a turret, upgrade it, then after they move for 0.5 sec build new turret ? can u fit a torb in attack in Voskaya for example (in defense he can be pita but attack ?)
    Hanzo has reputation that most ppl who play him suck, but hanzo can actually fit in attack or defense, torb however doesn't even have the option to work in assault on fixed point, he can't, his toolkit doesn't help him at all

    POOR TEAMWORK IS NOT:
    PLAYING A HERO THAT IS NOT CONSIDERED OPTIMAL BY THE COMMUNITY OR STAYING SILENT IN TEAM VOICE CHAT.
    While reporting player for abusive chat is:

    ANY FORM OF HATEFUL, DISCRIMINATORY, OBSCENE, OR DISRUPTIVE COMMUNICATIONS. THREATENING OR HARRASING ANOTHER PLAYER OR EITHER TEAM IS ALSO UNACCEPTABLE, REGARDLES OF THE WORDS USED.


    and abusive chat is NOT:
    ASKING A PLAYER TO SWTICH TO A DIFFERENT CHARACTER, OR GIVING SUGGESTIONG TO TEAM MEMBERS TO IMPROVE THEIR PLAY.


    So, in short, you can try to be helpful but if players dont listen - they dont listen. For op, abusive chat is way to go.

    See lahis and the one percent's post,
    If he picked torb then switch when it obviously didn't work, should be around about the 10 second mark out of the gate then that isn't an offence if he took torb and only played torb and refused to switch to fit his teams composition and aims then you get banned simple. This got shown ages ago.

    I've met fluffy in game seasons ago he only plays torb and nothing else and has been getting shit for it obviously. His Sr must be rock bottom by now

    Is torb not good on attack even if I get 3 golds and I'm on fire? Here is how I like to play torb I put my turret behind them on point maps and then shoot with my other gun from the front works a charm a lot as I can fire from all angles leaving tanks totally confused. I use my turret as a decoy a lot of the time as dps tend to want to focus my turret which distracts them from me and the rest of the team i provide armor from my team also going forward. torb attack plays even better on payload maps as one turret on payload with an orisa is hard to counter my turret never misses and hits flying mercy and pharah a lot of times its good for when the ever popular genji ults and he is not focusing on my turret. I always play the objective so i cant be throwing just cos pple say i am.

    If road hog misses his hook its easy for reaper to take him down.

    You say you don't need a torb on attack but you haven't demonstrated why you just stated it as a fact. You said its poor teamwork to play torb in attack but i don't think you know what poor team work means in the rules stated by the overwatch team let me help you

    Poor Team Work is not trying to complete map objectives or constantly communicating in a negative fashion. How does torb in attack apply to that rule if I'm putting my turret overlooking the point or shooting them on the payload? on the other hand

    Poor Teamwork is not " Playing a hero that is not considered optimal by the community or staying silent in voice chat"

    So by that rule i can turn voice chat off as i don't have to communicate and play what ever character i desire weather you agree or disagree with my pick or not

    I hope that makes things clearer. I have played torb on attack for 32 hours this season and have not received one penalty or silencing so maybe i should take comfort in that fact

    Oh really i play nothing else?, so are you saying in competitive i have zero hours on every other character apart from torb? Do you want me to screenshot my account and send it to you or would you like to retract and save yourself from looking silly

    Who decides what fits for the team composition as i said earlier which you failed to answer who is the captain of the ship that decides who plays what?

    Also what does my SR have to do with is torb not being allowed on attack or are just trying desperately hard to have a dig

    Read lahis and the one percent's post ur ban is coming soon as you rack up them reports.

    This feels like trying to explain to a 5yr old why plug sockets ain't for fingers.

    You can play attack torb with as much imagination as you want but the simple fact is there's nothing torb can do on attack that outher heros can't do better that's why no one takes him on attack and why people get pissy when you take him. You are occupying the spot of a better hero for that situation and not having synergy with your team. Gold medals don't mean shit without context I once got a eliminate, dmg and healing gold on mercy dosent mean I'm good at mercy. Just means the rest of your team is getting shafted. Probly by something you could have counted if you had switched.

    But it dosent matter you have 2 examples now of people being band for it so feel free to keep doing it ur nit my Sr bracket so I won't have to deal with your trolling

    When enough people report you for sticking to Torb and not communicating, you'll get first silenced and then banned for toxic behavior. We have linked the proof here.
