    Just played one as Valla, where people stood still while I did the Arrow-Vault-Arrow combo. I think I missed more arrows by expecting them to juke and they didn't than them actually juking them. And I'm FAR FAR from a good player myself mechanically.

    I mean, you can also run a 3-2 split depending on your comp and be succesful.

    Anyway, there's people that don't even understand the concept of soaking xp in general, so them not understanding laning is not surprising at all.

    If you win more than you lose, you'll get better ranks as you play enough games. That's all there is to it

    Try and get better at the game, by practicing basic mechanics (stutter stepping/hero combos/map awareness etc) and heroes in QM/Unranked/Try mode (of course you can do that in HL too, but I find it a bit more stressful so to speak) and watch high level streamers (I personally prefer Grubby/AlexTheProG because they explain why they do what they do)/pro play for the macro side of things.

    That said, that might be a bit too much effort if you already don't play much.

    Doing my placements, we get the following draft on ToD: Alarak/Zul'jin/Kel'thuzad/Johanna/Rehgar and we proceed to get instantly deleted in every TF since we're super squishy. Next draft on Tomb: Johanna/Rehgar/Zarya/Hammer/Nazeebo. Hammer was flanking most of the times, ended up with 9 deaths and proceeded to flame everyone. Such fun!

    Every season I drop 2-3 leagues back. I come to hate this game - last 4 seasons I got to gold 4 but every time new season drops I get matched retarded and get to silver x again....

    Pushed my Unranked MMR through the roof. After two long-ish winstreaks, I regularly have high Plats up to Masters (current HL ranks) in my games. Intruigingly, they are better, but not lightyears better than my usual high Silver/low Gold neighborhood. When aggressive, they usually give themselves a chance to get out again, they actually hit their skill shots and, quite unlike me, they don't take five second breaks to contemplate 'What could I do next?' The whole game feels as if it was running 10 or 15% faster.

    They also complain less and type alot less: when our Sylvanas was doing a camp instead of helping a Dragon Knight push, both masters in that game guys just pinged her once - almost at the same time.

    Not sure yet what to do with this new treasure. I could skip HL this season to 'steal' the MMR for HL next season, I could tryhard like I usually do only in HL or just continue to just goof around and see how long it lasts. It won't last forever - these guys are better than me. But at least they taught me two lessons: be more aggressive and never do nothing.

    Current season is marked by very short games - whatever they wanted to do with their changes, they failed. Snowball is a think almost on all maps now.

    Sylvanas needs a revamp or the laning changes has to go.

    Braxis is a complete wash if the other team has a Sylvanas and they get a 100-0 objective.

    That's what I felt when I went from rank 1-5 & hiatus to gold league, everything feels really slow. Like for example you have a very tight time window where you can take a boss, you ping it and expect to finish a game early. What happens in gold league though is that out of the 3 people only 2 follow, maybe, and the other team has the time to interrupt you and you either wipe and lose the game, or manage to disengage and just waste a ton of time on nothing.

    In the end you look like the baddie in the team for making a "bad" call, while it's the team that just isn't up to par to game winning strategies.

    Sounds like how it was before the changes too tbh.

    Well, it was technically yesterday, but I've been banking my shards (up to about 3800 now) for at least one of the Valla Winter Veil skins while hoping for a free one in a chest. Wouldn't you know it! Last night in my last game of the the night, I scored the beautiful red and green one!
    I can teach you how to play, but I can't fix stupid.

    so ban sylvanas, or draft a comp that beats their 4 man - both are easy considering how bad sylvanas is when trying to hold objectives - reddit goes into a delightful amount of detail

    sylvanas is basically the laning changes condensed into a single hero - people draft like complete trash against her/for the current state of the game in general and then cry how overpowered she is/how terrible the current state of the game is - feelshots

    yes reddit is the bastion of everything sane and pinnacle of balance designing

    'just ban hero' didn't really work for Garrosh, did it?
