    (Yes, of course they should do damage and get picks too where possible, but keeping your own team alive should be their first priority, aside from some situational exceptions.)
    It's a bit of both, DPS-focused supports are generally a problem in lower ELOs, I found by high-plat/low-diamond they've nailed healing, but generally ignore the fact that they can contribute to the damage output of the group, too.

    Ah, so you're the people I hate in my games.

    Stack JR, Mei and Reaper, cries for healing and expect the Ana to take out the Pharah that is blasting her around while attacking her.

    Got it. No wonder you're raging about being stuck in gold still after 3 years.

    I hate the people in your description too, and rightly so.

    Play of the Game system is an absolute joke.

    Nobody in this fucking game swaps heroes

    I'm juggling between Rein/Ashe/Mei/Brig constantly while my team is still the same god damn heroes that won't change for the last push, while the enemy team has someone swapping between Pharah/Bastion/Junkrat and I'm like come on guys, I can't be the only flex player here.

    This whole thread is full of people crying about how they are stuck in x bracket and that it is everyone elses fault but their own.
    So seeing the same people(atleast some of them are the same) crying about healers not doing everything it is easy to see why they are.

    Pretty sure you're the one playing it wrong. If you lock-in main tank, you stick with main tank.

    I nearly bought this on sale, reading this made me avoid it like the plague.

    Try a different tank like Orisa or Winston before switching off Tank maybe?

    Orisa, like Rein, doesn't do much against a Bastion if no one else on your team is swapping to counter him (haha quick play I know), and there was an enemy Reaper so I don't think there is a lot I can feasibly do with Winston, especially since the enemy player playing Bastion was swapping to counter constantly. McReaper good lord Winston just stay home.

    There's also Zarya, Roadhog, D.Va and Wrecking Ball... Not really main tanks, but likely stuff that can fare a bit better vs a Bastion (Zarya bubbles in general seem fairly useful vs. Bastion) unless they are behind a shield and have a pocket healer.

    at which point all you can really do is just shrug and accept that one can only do so much in a situation like that.

    If I based my purchase decisions on any game's forums I'd never buy anything tbh. No game is perfect, and players rarely write about the good things because they're happy with those and therefore it's nothing to write about, even though it's why they're still playing. Give it a go and see for yourself, the sale price is cheap so you don't lose much even if you end up not liking it, yet might just find a new favorite.

    Hit Masters again since season 4. I hate to admit it, but I was carried by my duo partner at that season, but now I can be happy that I accomplished it alone.

    If it's worth anything, this subforum is much more toxic and salty than the general OW community as a whole.

    Blizzard needs to act quicker on people who keep disconnecting/leaving games/crashing. 7 games today that have had leavers/disconnects/crashes. Why even try to play if your internet or computer isn't up to it? You're just ruining the game for everyone else. Why should habitual leavers be allowed to continue playing?

    Yep. Really wish they'dve just made this a strong single player game with multiplayer pve features.

    Still fun for me, except fighting Genji, Doomfist and Tracer. But I dislike competition in video games because it ruins the fun of doing goofy stuff. Which is what I am currently enjoying.

    I'm finding some surprise success in playing Torbjorn on Attack and Control. I modded my crosshair to help aim for heads, and finding odd spots for my turret to flank while they push.
