    She is great but she is too hybrid to be worth the slot, too niche.

    You need to build a team around her and have great synergy and that makes counterpicking really hard or impossible, you are better off just nto using her.

    Not only that but she is shut down by awareness.

    You hear me people complaining!? If Sombra is ruining you, your gameplay isthe problem.

    Play 3 arcade games and ping doesn't budge. Queue for my first comp placement game and instantly kicked to the login screen as the game starts.

    Log in within 30 seconds to see a 10 minute comp suspension... Good times.

    Sombra just isn't a good pick, since she no longer uses healthpacks to charge ult she isn't played for her ult anymore and the damage just isn't enough to make her a good pick for a dps spot. She pretty much just patters stuff unless she gets really close and then at that point you are either really dead or they are and I would much rather know they are really dead and not me with a junkrat or Reaper.

    You should have enough heals with the healers the game already has so hacking healthpacks are not going to compensate enough for a couple solid healers. If the dps isn't great then she doesn't really do her job well enough.

    Check for video card updates.
    If you push a button that finds you a 'random group' and it gives you a random group of people with random skill and random knowledge then you have no right to complain that a 'random group' button did what it was designed to do. The fault lies in your inability to make friends to play with instead of relying on a button designed to be random. It is a 'random group' button, not a 'best of the best' button.

    4 games in now.
    A draw.
    A game with we lost because we had a leaver and a Rein that kept charging in and not reacting to the team using ults.
    And a game lost against a Widow that i didn't see miss a single shot all game. No way they were legit that accurate.

    One day i'll get a win.

    Game 6. I get 4 golds as soldier including healing while we have a Mercy and an Ana on the team

    Most of my teammates in comp recently have just been awful. I consistently have 4-5 golds on Moira (many times including damage AND healing if there's another healer and I can dps on the side as well as heal) and top heals on Mercy (not hard, I know) if she's a better pick for the comp or if someone else is playing Moira. Always stuck with people who instalock Hanzo, Widow, Genji, Tracer, etc. and just suck at playing them, and it's always just me healing with one tank or me tanking if the only other person who doesn't insist on derping their way to a dps lock is a healer. I know I'm bronze/silver rank and I'm not the greatest player, but come on. I've added people to try to put groups together but I end up having to play at odd hours so it's hard to get more than maybe one on at the same time. Occasionally I'll just give up on trying to save a team when the game is clearly unwinnable and just swap to Pharah or McCree to have fun since no one else seems intent on doing what it takes to win, and then of course I get cursed out by my window-licking teammates. Some of these people have got to be trolling...I know not everyone is at least moderately good at games, but how can you be level 300+, play a pure dps character, and not end up with double digit elims? If you're a one-trick (and some of these people are, as I can see when I check their stats) how can they possibly be this bad at the only character they ever play?

    And don't get me started on all the leavers.

    Games 7,8 and 9 were wins.
    Game 10, My team decides that Junkrat, Tracer and Genji would be good picks against the Pharmercy combo. I had to drop a tank to go Moira so we could have a second healer and something that can actually damage the Pharah. Went from not being able to capture the first point on Numbani to a constant push to the final straight but it wasn't enough and the dps refused to change...

    3W - 1D - 6L, Gained 300 SR over last season.

    Australians were being extremely racist in a 5 stack and I was like you know what, enjoy your loss. I played Mei and wall fucked them the entire match.

    Can people just fucking NOT throw the game because they didn't get Brigitte on PTR?

    Lol dude you quit this game like 3 times a day. I don't disagree with you about Junkrat though...takes a high skillcap to play him really well but any noskill can tear shit up with him without trying. His ult seems to build way too fast too; I'm not sure what the best change would be for that other than just slowing it. I'd make it so his grenades get a lot less ult charge from hitting shields, personally.

    Not sure what you're expecting on the PTR. It's not very mature on their part, but why would people play on the PTR other than the opportunity to test new heroes/maps/whatever, unless they're wannabe "pros" who wanna test team comp, in which case you wouldn't be grouped with them anyway.

    Is it really too much to ask for people to be mature about that sorta thing? So you didn't get Brigitte. Oh well, pick someone else and at least attempt to play the game out and hope you get her next time or just do Total Mayhem where you can have a full team of Brigittes (and likely get curbstomped by a couple of Pharahs/Hanzo/Widows as a result) or play with several friends.

    No, it's not, and as I said I don't think it's very mature to have temper tantrums and throw. I just don't really see the point in doing QB/comp on the PTR unless you have a team or wanna test out a new character or map and I imagine that it'd be a bit frustrating to have latency issues that didn't allow you to choose the new hero before someone else does. Sure you can play one of the other modes, but that's not really the same as testing in a normal game setting. Not that any of that excuses that kind of behavior, but it's one of the reasons I don't even mess around on the PTR personally.

    Be mature on the PTR when the point is to test new content, which is just Brigitte? Wutface?

    6v6 lockout elim is kind of fun for short bursts, but (shocker!) people are pretty bad there too. I end up either 3-0 or 0-3 most of the time.

    Well given that she's getting nerfed, I'd say its actually because she's broken

    There's no official word on this, and no statistical reason to do it. Her pick and win rates are dropping back to where they were, and by all accounts the pros aren't having much success with her either in Contenders. It wouldn't make any sense at all to nerf her.

    Anyhow, having taken a few days out to play some StarCraft, I played some OW tonight and aside from the 4 stack V 4 stack match, which was a bit of a stomp against (although didn't lose much SR so again, meh); the other matches were pretty nice. Up a bit of SR too from a couple of net wins. Indeed, everyone was nice aside from one player.

    What is this I'm back to? It's not the OW I remember!
