    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.

    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.
    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!

    Isn't that a lot more work that just, you know, not playing?

    As far as I know, the reason she's being nerfed is exactly because the pros in contenders think she's broken.

    when you have played as many games as i have and are as fed up with the community as i am, it is pretty satisfying to watch them squirm and throw games over a thrower throwing cuz hey dawg i heard you like throwers so i put a thrower in your match so you can throw while they throw. they ruined the game for me so I am just returning the favor since I cannot enjoy the game anymore because of them.

    one of my accounts is not even level 25 and people in quick play and people will get mad about it, it's hilarious.

    You aren't returning the favor to the throwers though, the actual guilty party... You are just punishing everyone who happens to get grouped with you for the actions of other people they have nothing to do with, and in doing so have become that very thing you hate. But you knew that already, I'm just sad to see you chose to partake in spreading the misery further. Alas.

    Contenders said straight up that the side that picks her will usually lose.

    i wasnt talking about throwers

    i'm talking about every team that has lost a match where i have done 14k+ as tracer, i'm talking about every match where our team has gotten beaten in the choke because our DVA is too retarded to dive a bastion or a turret, i am talking about every player who has let mercy resurrect right in front of them, i'm talking about every match i have lost with gold damage and eliminations as Winston.

    I am tired of fucking dogshit slow balance changes. I am tired of anyone level 25 being able to walk into comp. I am tired of people 2 ranks below me thinking they are allowed to pick before anyone else on the team. I am tired of people playing heroes they have never played before in comp waiting until the last minute to change when there was no need for that hero in the first place.

    But mostly, I am tired of being expected to carry. I can't take it anymore when I can throw a match for an entire round and still have medals, sometimes gold medals when 15+ fucking heroes in this game all do very competitive damage.

    She's getting nerfed anyways, because the pros are complaining about her. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW1GMQKDzQA

    "Hero", is what they've all been saying. This world, it isn't worth the saving."

    I saw, it's batshit insane. Nerfing a hero that at any level below GM is a fucking troll pick, and at GM is right on the edge of troll pick because some pro players cried? They simply don't want her in the game. Seriously should just delete her, Mei, Symmetra, Doomfist, Torb and Ana at this point, it's clear they're not serious about making them viable.

    Sounded like you were, but alright. I'm sorry to hear all that, I really am, because I know it can get frustrating as fuck when you do everything you can yet it's just not enough to drag your team to win, especially when it just keeps on and on. However, that doesn't really make this throwing spree any less of a nasty thing to do, I wish you'd take a step back and reconsider.

    If you havent met a sombra player that makes you understand why she's getting nerfed then I'm glad for you. It was broken.
