    I actually miss ignore player. Some people are so good that they make my playing experience worse. I can't fight them, they find me and kill me FIRST, and I can't do anything about it. It happens often enough that I quit the game for several months earlier this year. It's beginning to occur with frightening frequency, and it's extremely frustrating. Ignore Player would keep me from having to play against certain types of players, and I miss it.

    Sorry, you replied to my statement about Avoid as Teammate with a statement about ignore player, so it sounded like you were confounding the two. I'm sorry if I misunderstood.

    It's probably not the hitboxes themselves that are dumb, it's how the game chooses to process them. It does hit detection client side rather than server side, which is uncommon. But it was a conscious decision by the design team I think which unfortunately means it's unlikely to change.

    (I'm assuming its related to that, anyway, because the hitboxes seem normal if you shoot at stationary targets in the training grounds to find their outline.)

    Projectiles in this game are pretty big, so they’re fairly forgiving and it leads to some weird animation effects.

    The player models themselves are pretty sharp for hitscans.

    No problem, I don't think I was very clear about it in the first place there... I might've had it more in my head than in the actual text, sorry.

    On topic, what gave me a scare during this event was the notion that the season ends in a week, and I haven't done placements...

    Yes, I was really late to this season apparently. I only started playing it a couple weeks ago, which I knew was later in the season but I didn't think that late. I was really surprised when I saw the 'season ends soon' flag pop up on the Games selection yesterday.

    I think I managed ~15 games this whole season, including my ten placements. On the plus side, I've won all of them post-placement which is nice and a small step towards getting me out of the SR hole I dug a few seasons ago. I've played very little Comp since then because placement finishes and it puts me so much lower than I used to play at and it was just discouraging. It seemed like too much work to try to climb back to where I felt I should be from the start, so I'd give up when I hit my season low and then next season I'd just place lower and lower as a result. I've placed a little better this season and then with the wins, I'm back up closer to where I feel I probably should be. I'm still a little lower than I think I'm capable of, but not so much now that I feel discouraged from playing or like I'm going to get fucked from the start for next season's placements.

    I think I can buy my third golden gun when this season ends but I have absolutely no idea who to buy for. The ones I like best are for heroes I play very little of. Despite how common they are at this point, occasionally people still get excited when they see my existing ones and act like a win is in the bag and I'm like, man, you are in for a world of disappointment if you expect much from me. Maybe I should just hoard them in case they introduce new rewards but I feel like it's more likely they'll add a new currency if they ever add new rewards.

    I’m also kind of out of ‘main heroes’ to buy the golden weapon for. Have Widowmaker, Sombra, D.Va, Orisa, Pharah, Mercy, and Ana’s. In terms of niceness I feel like Brigitte, Winston or Tracer, but in terms of actually using them should maybe go Zen, Moira or 76, or maybe Hammond. I feel like Zarya represents good size value to, even though I’m bad with her and never play her.

    Given my shitty luck with boxes this event too, I’m wondering if to just buy Banshee or Bride. Usually I’d just buy Bride as I do all Sombra things for completeness, but I’m playing a lot of Moira and doing pretty well and that skin is awesome. I may even end up getting a Blizzcon ticket, will have to see what I get for other games though, I’ve not seen a Murky for this year...

    Oh I also made level 4 endorsement today. So that’s a thing, despite my potty mouth.

    • Doomfist damage completely out of control for the amount of movement and defense he has
    • Brigitte damage insane for the utility she has with stuns, knockbacks, shield, movement and healing
    • Moira burst DPS in another league compared to the original healers, whilst still outhealing them. Her aim-locking beam also WTF?

    On the other hand things like Ana's lack of movement with zero defensive abilities sucks the fun out of the games. From a casual player's PoV my gameplay has very little impact on team performance with a tank or a healer. I main Rein, Lucio & Ana. I rarely get any appreciation and I'm forced off DPS with the amount of plain stubborn "insta lock DPS" -players that have a major impact in low ELO games. Also the geographical fact there are a billion Russians in our games makes communication occasionally a huge problem.
    This seems to be the mantra with newer Blizzard games. Fun for a year, then power creep sets in hard and makes the game generally less enjoyable. It's why I haven't played HS in years, and why I quit competitive OW 2 seasons ago.

    I'm playing Zen a lot lately but he's so situational as a healer due to his low output, and it's rare to have a group coordinated enough to get full benefit from discord.

    My other thought is Reaper, since he's one of my go-to DPS if I have to play DPS but I'm pretty mediocre at him and almost never play him in comp so it seems like selling myself as something I'm not.

    Given my shitty luck with boxes this event too, I’m wondering if to just buy Banshee or Bride. Usually I’d just buy Bride as I do all Sombra things for completeness, but I’m playing a lot of Moira and doing pretty well and that skin is awesome.
    Maybe this is old news but I actually noticed this holiday that if you hit "buy all" you get everything at a very reduced price than if you bought all the pieces individually. JUST A PSA IN CASE OTHER PEOPLE ARE SLOW LIKE ME.

    edit: or maybe not, unless it's just holidays or i originally misread. looking at the hero base stuff themselves it isn't reduced, so I am wrong somewhere

    (and yeah Banshee is a great skin)

    I keep ping-ponging between 3 and 4 because toxic people enjoy mocking others with endorsements.

    In other news: people still seem to think Attack Torb is a good idea. Never change QP.

    Mocking people with endorsements? Seriously? That's the most counter-productive thing I've heard, "mocking" someone by giving them benefits.

    I mean if people want to mock me by contributing to my free loot boxes, go right ahead, I don't mind at all, keep 'em coming.

    I've stopped opening lootboxes since I've started getting the free endorsement ones. Sadly Blizz doesn't seem to have the option to remove them.

    Played a couple games on my lunch break... I don't know whether it is an example of the caustic side of the community or a reaction to it, but after my team won a teamfight and capped the point -- despite the fact I was an idiot and died right at the start of it (as support) -- I said "good job everyone who isn't me" I was told to "STFU" and "get over myself." Did they think I was being sarcastic? Were they just dicks?

    The world will never know.

    Why is Genji so predominant in my games lately? Literally haven’t seen anyone play him well in multiple seasons and he’s on my team every game out of the last 8 I’ve played. Last one was so terrible, Lear’s the charge down the straight line and he dies to Widow. Gets Rez by Mercy, goes down the payload line and gets killed by McCree. Comes out of spawn, goes straight down the line again and gets picked again by Widow. Kind of laughable.
    Also, random DCs loading into a game are back again apparently. Lost roughly 100 SR and now on a 2 hour ban from it.

    It really sounds like they thought you were mocking them and making a point how you were the only good player on the team. Most people probably wouldn't expect genuine compliments where you put yourself down on the same go, because publicly admitting it was you who did bad rather than blame someone else for it is rare as hen's teeth. But then again people can be dicks over the most bizarre things so hard to be sure.

    I guess maybe but I think even the most self absorbed player probably wouldn't have given themselves credit for a teamfight win when they did something dumb, got picked off, and weren't even present for the cap. But then again, I'm assuming they have the game awareness to notice that happened. Although I'd think it would be pretty obvious I was dead in base at the time I typed it.

    Oh well. But yeah, wouldn't surprise me if the proliferation of assholes made everyone defensive and assume even people not trying to be jerks are jerks.

    Just arcades tonight, got a couple of lootboxes, got Bride! So I've bought Banshee now, hopefully those last two, 76 and Hammond, drop before the end of the event.

    Couple of DM matches I just couldn't play anything I'd usually play, no idea what's up, probably just tired... ended up going 76 and rolled a first and second place.

    So I’m fairly consistently getting 30%+ healing cards on Moira.

    Why do I never see other Moira players get this, and why do people pretend she’s not a main healer?
