    Welp, for the first time since I've been playing, got knocked all the way down to Bronze.
    A big shout out to the "incredible" matchmaking system for consistently pairing me with
    some truly "spectacular" and "skilled" players that fucked me over to get this rank.

    In any game, you always hear about the dreaded "Bronze" rank. Horror stories of how
    its either the most toxic area, or that the "skill" of the players your with are so bad that
    they make the Easiest A.I. setting look like Grand Masters. I always took those stories
    with a grain of salt, but being trapped (literally) down here I see that the stories are
    100% true. It really is that bad down in Bronze.

    It is virtually impossible to get out of this rank. Could probably play all day and make 0
    progress.

    Yeah last season I got dumped in Bronze after a streak of shitty games. Spent the whole season clawing my way back to Silver. I think I ended the season just below it.

    Tonight I finished placement. All ten games were fucking horrible dogshit, I think I won maybe 2 of them and at least half were massively unbalanced matches against obvious smurf teams.

    It gave me Gold 3. I haven't been in Gold for like two years. What the utter fuck.

    Holy fuck Lucio is just crazy fucking strong with that rework.

    Amen this shit, just had a game where someone started flaming me and to enjoy my ban for picking Abathur, meanwhile I was topping on hero damage and what not...

    Turned my chat back on for ranked games, and I already regret it.

    Oh yeah, I disabled chat a while ago. I'm at the point where chat doesn't add anything to my gameplay that pings and looking at the minimap don't already do.

    Another night of Ranked where I win one game, and then go on another losing streak and derank, then lose further
    games to the point where I would probably need to play all day to get back what I lost.

    That is, if the game doesn't fuck me over, which it probably will, like it already has.

    We don't know that since April 17 patch: "The party size of enemies will no longer be shown during the match loading screen."

    Aren't you supposed to block out usernames if you post images?

    I tend to only do that if it involves "bad" players. These people weren't bad, they just couldn't get a foot to the ground after we surprised them on the first objective round.

    One of the dumbest fucking changes they could've made.

    *Edit*

    So I'm guessing that solo-queing in Ranked mode is essentially a recipe for disaster, because once the game has
    you ELO Hell hard locked, it is virtually impossible to get out of it by yourself.
