    God I know, I find it difficult to actually enjoy myself in Overwatch atm, a great deal of my games just plainly arent fun.

    This game need a lot more quality development time, given how big they're trying to make its eSports scene.

    No one else thinks brig is alright.

    She turned the meta into a hellishly unfun shitshow that caused a lot of people to quit the game.

    She tanked healed and DPSd, won virtually every 1v1, not having a brig was basically a throw as brig is the counter to brig, she does a ton of damage and requires no aim, her ult turns her whole team into tanks, the list goes on.

    Meh I can't get over how bad people are at this game. Like wooo i'm a Reinhardt let me run solo into the whole team I got this. Soldier 76 i'll battlefield style solo the whole team with no ult and just my heal button.

    Ugh going into any match without a full 6 stack is pure torture on every level.

    The only thing that really triggers me about rein players is when they shatter, then instantly shift, knocking the shattered targets away from being killed.

    I always enjoy when both a rein and their charge target go off the cliff together, It's a special kind of awful.

    Bonus points if he somehow charges another rein and they both go tumbling.

    She’s actually pretty bad in a regular 2-2-2 match, and fighting individually she’s not much a problem for much of the roster. The problems are with her impact on the metagame when she’s run in a 3 tank 3 support setup.

    I have been doing a reticuleless challenge and I'm stuck in diamond without it.

    Then you are playing in arcade, quickplay or at a low rating(I mean no offense.)

    The goats meta has been plaguing high rated for months and brig in general before her nerfs.

  10. #9770
    Yes that is relatively low.

    Just played with a 5 stack that were boosting two gold players, I threw the game when it was winnable because of how cocky they were acting.

    This was at about 3250.

    Showing a lack of self awareness there. You realise that the average rank is mid-gold?

    Further, Jeff did a recent interview and said statistically on ladder, players actually using GOATS are actually a very tiny number. It's very much a pro-level problem.

    Relatively was my qualifier and I wasn't trying to condescend, I have just spent the last few months being flamed fairly consistently before a game even begins for refusing to play that comp and it isn't an enjoyable situation to be in.

    Too many smurfs, ruins the game.
    Never underestimate the unknown, or some shit. *shrugs i unno*

    For sure different playstyles are required in different ranks, my alt dropped into gold recently and holy hell do I need to play conservatively, apparently chasing kills and forcing staggers is now considered 'overextending' by most of gold. Guess we'll sit on cart and have 3 more team fights than necessary.

    Yeah it did. Basically some guy complaining that he's in masters on 1 account out of 6, and that somehow means the MMR system is bad. Literally no other info.

    Mercy main trying to play Genji and stuff while not bothering with comms because they are on alts, got it.

    Thanks for the recitation.

    In my experience more than holding people back the MMR system in Overwatch persistently lets people go on luck streaks and put them far higher than they belong because their isn't enough focus on defining a metric for performance.

    That was my line of thinking. I'm okay with the performance increased SR gains being a bit scuffed, the more benefit of the doubt people get to get into diamond the better, gold and low plat games are just so far from real games of Overwatch that the less time spent there for people who really wanna git gud the better.

    Please, do not take offense, but have you lived under a rock? This is by far the strongest meta and the most common from Plat to GM.

    And
    Like 90% of all contenders games are goats meta.
    The world cup was also almost only goats meta.

    Even with reaper buffs and various nerfs, goats meta is still the strongest in the game.

    Overwatch League season 2 will start with goats meta.

    And it's litterally 50% of all competitive games and I'm at 3k too.
