    I know I like to moan about the broken placement system and peoples attitude in silver (Last season crawled my arse out of that shit hole bronze up into mid gold); but I did this seasons placement games and placed in 2300. Happy enough with that. dropped to 2100, went back up, dropped again all fine.

    The last 72 hours though fuck me. The people I'm getting placed with is just insane. Hand on heart I'd say I've lost 4 games or so from being outplayed, no issues they just played better than our best. 2300 down to 1650 as of this morning.

    Honestly, the toxic, I've never seen it so bad. And none of them have the skills to go with the attitude. If it isn't leavers 1 minute into a game it's just general arguments before the game even starts. People running 5 dps then raging at me for not healing quick enough etc.

    I'm essentially finding myself forced to play a different champion if we want any hope of winning. Then I get games like I just had, they let me DPS and went 2-2-2. Carried that shit on reaper / sombra so easily.

    What in hell is Mei doing complaining about a lack of damage? Mei is why there's no damage.

    Seems also now that "Join VC" has become a massive red flag as well. Someone asks that, guaranteed loss.
    30% the other day for me.... I only got off one decent transcendence too -.-

    I play 2-5 characters from each role and I've stopped tanking altogether not because it's thankless but because the frustrations are unacceptable. Rein gets bounced around all over the fucking place, and the other tanks feel bad to play.

    "fucking retarded team, if that motherfucking sombra would have been killed she wouldnt have gotten those 2 ticks"

    Playing Sombra on Anubis attack. Had to take first 2 ticks on second point on my own as my team had WM+Hanzo main+Ashe vs a Winston and also got outsniped. My team barely got out of spawn, so I "only" had to play around with the lonely Ana defending the point and her allies whenever they ran out of spawn or ran back when I started taking the point.
    Then some of the snipers left and the new additions took healers or non-snipers so we finally got the last tick.

    Still I got no recognition from my team... but from the enemy team, so I'll take that I guess.

    to be fair, if they can't aim, they're going to do even worse on someone who shoots projectiles. They're better off on a hitscan.

    (although Ashe is probably a bad choice there)

    You can still spam chokes with pharah, you'll hit something a fair proportion of the time.

    Very painful indeed. Again, no one wants to play tanks and healers. Which I don't get, as they can be some of the most fun characters.

    But yee gods, playing rein is painful. You just push, die, push die, push die....

    I am the only one that thinks Bob has a bit too much health? It's also way too easy for Ashe to get PotG -.-

    Bob definitely has a shitton of health, but I think that's because they don't want the strategy to be kill Bob, they want the strategy to be hide from Bob (or maybe tank Bob or something like that).

    But yeah if they're intention is that kill Bob is a viable strategy, his healthpool is insane so it's a waste of time to even try to get through that before he runs off.

    Bob feels like the only truly threatening part of Ashe's kit, to me at least. Which is great, just what we need, more shit designed around the retard button

    Depending of the rating, Bob can be CC, an at this moment almost every game run a ana witch can hard counter ashe ultimate, but on low rating player trend to break the sleep so.

    Man, this game is infuriating me lately. Since my placement matches I have not won a single competitive game. continuously get paired with shit people...I've dropped 200 rating and ready to punch people in the face whenever I play this game now. Sad part is it's not even just in comp that I feel im getting crappy teammates....if I solo queue for quick play or any arcade mode most of the players I encounter are just pure dogshit at the game. It just makes a very frustrating feeling as well as a feeling of disdain for the game. Maybe it's time to uninstall for a while again.

    Hadn't played OW since the Christmas event last year, so I did a few games today. Ashe is a lot of fun. I've heard about Doomfist being really annoying and I can see it. I think I'll keep playing for a while, got burned out last time.

    How's Junkrat nowadays? Got bored to death playing this game when it came out but i did find some fun in JR, his kit is very nice and allows me to make huge outplays

    I'm also pretty sure we don't get ult charge from hitting bob.

    I'm finding map dependent it's better to manipulate bob more than anything. Best character for this is Rein, you can close the distance with a shield and charge him out of LoS. Or like I like doing, charging him straight off the map.

    Orissa can gravity him off.

    Sombra seems to be the best option currently, but it relies on having a competent tank to soak the damage for 3 seconds while you get the hack off.

    I placed at either 2200 or 2400 I can't remember, but it's taken me seasons to climb out of the fuck wittery that is bronze to a decent level, decent as in people want to play competitive not fucking around. I've ran into the same issue, everyone wants to fuck around, argue, go offline as soon as they can etc. I dropped from that score to 1600 across the week.

    I'm livid, I've played at 2400 with friends who are at 3000+ and I hold my own just fine. So I took advantage of black friday and bought a 2nd account, want to see how I'll place without a previous season fucking me over. Level 22 so far, holy shit the new accounts are so toxic, either it's smurfs steam rolling everyone or its all new players who just want to play damage. I feel kinda bad about it, I decided to play m y worst champions are first to make it more fair, but even on a WM I solo took two points,

    Ana can put him to sleep too, but that requires your team not shooting him.

    Not really true, at least not for me. My aim isn't very good, but I do way better with projectile heroes than with hitscan.

    To me it's a problem because if the Ashe player pops him on the point it can be nightnight, and that's way too o.p. on that kind of map.

    As for my games lately, I've only played 3/10 placement matches this season because I just can't deal with all the aspie windowlickers I get grouped with. I get stuck playing support literally every game (this was going on most of last season too) which is bad enough (I enjoy support but I like a little variety) but most of the time we end up with 1 tank and 1 healer if that, myself included. And it's not like I'm playing with dps who are lights out and capable of carrying 1/1/4 (which you should honestly be able to get away with occasionally in bronze/silver if the team is halfway competent), so it's one long painful slogfest filled with leavers, throwers, and people who just plain suck.

    I'm sure that paragraph made me sound toxic. I am indeed becoming toxic. Honestly, these days I mostly play arcade to get my weekly chests of 35 credits each and then fuck around in quick play where I don't care if people run 6 dps and I play whatever I want.
