    Fuck the final Junkenstein challenge.

    Bombadiers spawning tires on top of bosses spawning two tires is straight up bullshit.

    from 3200 to 2200 in one sitting
    never gonna climb back up, this rating is biased with botters, leavers, purpose throwers and overall toxicity

    Sounds like Blizzard matchmaking working as it always has.

    Unsurprisingly, the season's placements have been pretty shit quality.

    Open Queue - Way too low but unsurprising, given the "Quick Play Mentality" that is Open Queue.
    Never took trying to climb on this one seriously for that very reason.

    Role Queue (Support) was also a bit too low. Lost 4/5 games with the dps flaming me for not
    healing them when they can't counter play the enemy team's dps, bad tank combinations, and
    the usual instalockers who don't counterplay in general.

    Role Queue (Tank), lastly is the same as the rest, although I was Ranked significantly lower than
    I should be. Sure doesn't help when you have games where your dps can't kill a fucking thing.

    Another season, another bad time with Overwatch and it's unsalvageable matchmaking system.

    Trying to enjoy the game but I find it nearly impossible. I don't experience that much throwers and toxic people, but the amount of Smurfs has just become absolutely unbearable.

    There is nearly a 100% appearance of a smurf, no matter what mode I play. And of course Blizzard are aware but does not care, cause more account mean more money, same old story.

    Question is when will the quality be so low of the game that they start to lose more money than they would if they prevented smurfs from existing.

    Indeed, it's really quite disheartening when it seems the matches mostly come down to which side has/doesn't more/better smurfs. Why bother when you don't even matter, unable to stop the enemy smurfs or get carried by your own, pointless bullshit either way.

    Yep. I was originally paired with a 4-man group where two were low Silver, but the other two, despite being Gold, were playing at
    a level significantly higher than Gold. It was an obvious boost going on, courtesy of their smurf. We managed to win, but the enemy
    team was good as well.

    Next game, I face the same smurf team, and despite having our own 4-stack, this group was nowhere close to the same level as
    the other team. It was a completely one sided stomp.

    So yeah, this is the kind of "fair" and "balanced" matchmaking system Blizzard has.

    played 15 games... 8 of them have leavers... they need to start cancelling games when there are leavers with this amount of leavers nowadays...

    I'm in favour of a harsher punishment. If you leave a game, for whatever reason, then you shouldn't be able to queue again for anything in-game for an hour. Do it again within a week and the timer gets harsher and harsher.

    If people leave a match it should be assumed they are doing so because they cannot play the game for the foreseeable future. Be it due to an emergency or whatever. I'm so tired of leavers in every multiplayer game.

    they really need to redesign the system... played 10 games yesterday and 4 of them had leavers... how is a matchmaking system based on rating supposed to function when leavers are so prevalent?

    I found by and large, DPS players are fucking terrible. They never switch to the situation, get pissy/ignore you when you ask, hey, maybe swap to someone that can take care of Ball/Spamfist? Nah let me swap to a hero that is countered even more by them.

    like widows that keep getting dived by winstons/genjis/sombras or stay widow against double shield tanks? XD
    someone else might have gotten it wrong.

    Or when you have dps players who have characters that counter the enemy team, but are so bad at dps that it doesn't
    even matter.
