    The only bad part of this "Chinalock" as you put it, is that if someone isn't pulling their weight, players aren't
    able to swap with them. You're at the mercy of whoever is playing their role.

    Playing on Tank Ques, nothing sucks more (and further drive my hatred toward this character more)
    than losing several games in a row due to Pharah, because no one can fucking kill her.

    Role queue has pretty much killed the game for me. I can't switch to deal with enemy heroes any more because I'm locked into a role. So stupid.

    My games are... terrible, I guess. I'm somewhat of a new player, but taken up the support-role as either Zenyatta or Mercy. But good grief, some teammates... Rushing into the enemy team alone, breaking LoS (More a Mercy problem, should press shift more to stay close), being too spread out. Also: Being the immediate target is so much fun. It's like the enemy is using an auto-aimer whenever I come into play. The woes of being a Support player, I guess.

    I think the only reason I find the game enjoyable is because I'm playing it for fun, and not for glory or getting high ranks. That reminds me: I need three more wins for the new Mercy skin.

    - Queue times are so much longer than they used to be
    - Forced into a role means if my team can't deal with someone in their role we're fucked
    - Matches are cookie cutter and boring

    Shit game now tbh.

    The only thing I really agree with is the queue times have suffered, which in a way is enlightening into how many games we’ve played in the past where people went tank or support and either never wanted to (didn’t enjoy it) and/or were completely terrible.
    Other than that, if someone can’t take care of someone else you were potentially just as fucked as you are now, as there’s no guarantee they would/could take over the role you were in or would even swap to it, or that the extra spot you took would even help.
    I’m guess the cookie cutter is just the 2-2-2, because all other scenarios with previous metas and the like we’re also cookie cutter.

    I swear there is something in place that if you DC/abandon/whatever out of a game early that your next game(s) you have to be placed with some of the worst people to play your rank.
    Internet went down last night, kicked out of game, lose SR, the usual; but, the next game I get teammates so bad that the enemy Widow is able to stand next to the payload right outside of our spawn door at the start of the map and pick people off. Before anyone says anything, pretty sure that no, there was nothing I could have done better as a healer. It wasn’t just a widow btw, just that I noticed her and 2 of the other enemy team there and she really stood out that she could do that.

    If true, I'm okay with this. If there exists some sort of low priority/shitlord queue I think it should definitely be advertised though.

    2-2-2 saved the game for me. Was tired to play in teams with minimum 5 dps on each side.

    The only thing they should add is the possibility to sign up for more than one role when playing with friends.

    I have one tricked(only did this in support role) Zen to 4k this season and I still have people leave and throw only because of the pick before the game even starts.

    The metaslaving is beyond retarded.

    games are absurd and no fun. they drenched every fun aspect out of the game.

    Got new gear from the sales. With a steady 144fps I see a considerable improvement in my gameplay. Used to be I lost about 3 out of 4 of my games, but for yesterday and today it's flipped the other way around. Oh well, I'm sure Blizzard's shitty matchmaking will bump me up beyond my skill ceiling soon enough.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.
