    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.

    Just finished my 10 ranked games, [brag]8/10 victories, platinum 4[/brag].

    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.

    Healing 400k damage over winning games is not possible.

    The amount of stupid shit I have to put up with as a healer and I can't even lane clear or merc like most tanks.

    Fuck my life.

    Li Li all day every day.

    Free Drinks, Safety Sprint, The Good Stuff, Jugs, Surging Winds, Pick Me Up, Shake It Off/user's preference.

    Take all the damage you can afford to take without dying to have as high an uptime on your trait as possible. No one around? Take a few towers shots. Up against a dot hero like Nazeebo or Gul'dan? Take the hits on purpose. I ended up doing just over 200k healing in a single QM game playing like this. It's risky, but man. The payoff is insane.

    Alongside Nerraw's suggestion, have you tried one of the "auto-healers", like Brightwing or Lucio? You'll rack up healing points simply by existing. Like Nerraw said, so long as it's safe to do so, you can even intentionally put yourself in danger so you can heal yourself up for some additional points towards the quest.

    Because goodness knows Blizzard would rather people forget about the Night Elves entirely.

    It's not the actual healing that's the issue.

    It's my team just continually fucking things up and rendering my 100k healing absolutely pointless when we lose and thus does not contribute to the quest.

    I have read that self-healing counts, so I may just hop on Leoric and have more impact in games and not be this fucking helpless support hero who can't lane, merc, or do anything but to sit their ass in with the dumb-ball and watch bottom lane sloooooooowly get pushed by a single Siege Giant from Fort, to Keep, to Core before our Naz actually does something.

    Healing is going back to being the last thing I want to do because holy shit.

    Ah, I totally get that. Now that the Specialist role no longer exists, Healer/Support is probably my least favorite for this very reason: it is beyond frustrating to have to sit and watch helplessly while your team continually makes mistakes, and all you can do is heal them...so they can survive just long enough to go make further mistakes.

    That's why I tend to prefer healers that can also do decent damage or at the very least can secure kills on their own, like Kharazim or Stukov. Maybe give one of those two a try, if you haven't already?

    Otherwise, Vs AI is always waiting, if you get desperate enough.

    Yeah, that quest is pretty crazy. I figured I'd play Lucio since he heals a lot/passively and I'd get a quick completion but I think I just made it worse on myself. That hero is such a piece of garbage, good god.

    Self-healing from most heroes does count (not sure if Valla's does, she has no healing stat), so Muradin or Dehaka can get a good amount of progress aswell. Definitely don't try to force a fast completion, you'll just tilt yourself.



    I kinda wonder if they made the healing quest 400k because they wanted more people to play healers. Seems pretty disproportionate to have 400k healing but only 300k siege, since 300k siege is very easy in 2-3 wins if you play a waveclear hero, which you can find in almost every role. Getting 400k healing is gonna take atleast 5 wins, unless the games go extraordinarily long.
