    You understand that they’re not getting the medals because they’re dying, the tanks are dying, because the only person you’re focused on healing is you? They’re not getting the opportunity or support to do their job.

    I play both, seen both sides it can happen pretty easily, just takes a couple of good Tranqs. You can’t fault Mercy for that, you just saved her a couple of resses and let her focus on just boosting through Valk.

    We've had C9s in pretty much every game so far, not just Fuel, but yeah, it's been sligthly embarassing

    Just had a game where we had a Pharah who complained they weren't getting healed. The 2 healers were Moira and Lucio. Just what? Of course you're not going to get healed when you hang out in the air over the enemy team and they have 76 and Moira to burn you down. Pharah never came back to the team once, just kept shifting above the enemy and complain.
    Next game I'm playing Reaper and flanking the enemy. My team keeps following me around and giving my placement away. Ask them to quit doing it. We lose a point and respawn, they start going mid and I'm going left, a teammate immediately says let's all go left, follow the Reaper, to which everyone does. /sigh

    My games:

    Battle Mercy running into melee range of enemies, she was super salty for not being allowed to throw W
    Attack Sym L
    Attack Torb L
    Throwing Mei L
    No healers and three Mercy mains L
    Normal game W
    Normal game L
    Normal game W
    Normal game W

    Right back where I started because so many people want to lose.

    Yeah, looks like my last couple of days. What I understand least is when people decide round 3 or 4 are the time to throw, like it's a totally normal game until that point. Kind of stalled on SR as well now, think my hidden MMR needs some building up again after getting trashed so hard; either that or they've secretly recalibrated the system again. Pretty sure this has happened before though when I've had a fast climb, a bit of a stall then it rights itself and can climb more easily again.

    Actually had a really good game with a 5 stack too, for a change, usually they're a nightmare and it wasn't looking good when one of them took until 15s to doors open to pick; I'd already picked Widow, but had only 1 support so I got myself killed and went Zen and while defence was pretty hard we pretty much walked Attack because they were following my Discords perfectly, at the end the were really complementary too so that was cool.

    This for a clutch saving a match for a Draw as well, felt good. https://plays.tv/video/5a5a91ecb2889...atch-save-dva-

    Just had an amazing match on my Hanzo only account.

    PotG was 5 kills without ult, I saved it if I ever get around to doing the gif thing jessica does it might be the only one I post on here.

    After the match ended I told them I was the biggest dragon in the room and the next response was, "I fucking hate Hanzo players." Feels good. I reported them for being abusive. Ecks dee.

    I got the 71% kill participation card.

    You know.
    I hate people who insta-lock widow, but throwing a game because they won't switch is about 1000 times more toxic.

    ive always maintained a game shouldn't start if a group can't agree on a comp. people always say "games would never start then" but do people who can't work with others to make a reasonable comp and players who have the experience that they do at their ELO to predict the kind of comps the enemy team will run, do they really even deserve to play competitive in the first place?

    I've noticed a propensity in quick play for the instalock hanzos and widows, lately.

    That's when I know it's going to be a bad game.

    i think this is how the story of a lot of us becoming competitive players starts

    Terrible game, team sat back and waited for me to 1v6.

    I would get 2-3 picks, have to pull back to a health pack because healers are blind, they would just sit back doing fuck all while enemy came back. Retardation is real.

    Yup pretty much same.

    Or insta-lock genji, but that can go either way. It happens in comp too though, especially hanzo.

    I don't even care about comp; I play my placements, place diamond, and am content with that each season.

    Usually I play quick play with friends, and it's getting really damn annoying to have the terribad hanzos/widows every single game. And the funny thing is there's usually a hanzo or widow on the enemy team that's actually fairly competent. Meaning I have to play Winston because no one else is going to do anything about them because our snipers kept getting killed by pharah or some nonsense.

    And a friend of mine and I can't "reserve" hanzo/widow at the start to ensure no one takes them because then all the other randos you get grouped with think you're throwing.

    I'd rather have a genji than a hanzo and I'd rather have a hanzo than a Widow.

    Genji can kill people with his ult and will at the very least form a distraction. Hanzo can at least accidentally kill people. A widow that can't aim isn't going to kill anyone, ever.

    As a Shimada only player all I can say to you guys is.

    Only a Shimada can control the dragons.



    Man the dragon is really awakening today, even in the game I lost I was doing amazing. Sitting in midmasters on both accounts now.

    So unlike a shimada player.

    Most of the Hanzo and Genji mains I have seen are very modest people :P

    If I'm not on, I just log out, rather than tilt myself by seeing my poor play. Also..

    Held my nose and went through placement. About 50% complete troll games.

    Wind up at the exact rank I finished last season at. Sigh.
