    I'd still like to win in QP, if you're deliberately not countering the team or just doing nothing at all to help then yes, I will yell at you. QP is great for practice for competitive. Stuff the people who say "it's just QP", no, losing sucks.

    I like to win too. but that doesn't mean i need to counter pick the enemy team. i completely agree if a person is doing nothing that they should be reported. but that means actually doing nothing. just because a person is ineffective doesn't mean they aren't trying.

    people like you care too much about winning and ruin the game for casual players. if you want people to counter pick and try as hard as they can to win, that mentality is for COMPETITIVE. quick play isn't meant to be pro play or competitive. it is meant as the mode for casual players who are either bad at the game or just want to play a character they want to that sucks (which is usually me). I like playing bastion and hanzo. I like bastion because haha, it goes brrrr. but bastion isn't good in competitive and i just suck with hanzo but still find him fun to play.

    your attitude says that bastion should be deleted from the game and i should never have a chance to play hanzo. YOU are imposing an IDEAL on people. life isn't an ideal and you aren't going to win every game. get that through your thick head.

    Honestly? Most players are just selfish and don't know how to play as part of a team. They've an allergy to constructive criticism, too.

    I used to be pretty invested in this game but it ended up feeling like more of a chore than anything else because in so many matches you get people locking in Widowmaker and Hanzo who have terrible aim and who probably aren't going to improve anytime soon.

    I dislike healing and tanking, though if that's what is needed I bite the bullet and play one. Sometimes I get to play my favourite character and sign up as a DPS which is great - but I don't go into each match with the expectation of sticking with that specific character if a different tool is needed.

    I feel a little dirty suggesting it, but if you want a game that's quick to get into and people play to win then you might want to look into Fortnite. It wasn't my kind of game at first, but then I realised that whenever I wanted to scratch the itch of competitive play, it just worked much better than Overwatch in its current state.

    All of that (toxic people, leavers, idlers, ...) made me stop playing also Comp and my will to play the game seriously

    QP is basically the same

    Now after doing some mystery heroes become in love with it, no try hards, super rare having toxic people on there and its fun, makes you play all chars and learn them

    I would love to come back the community at the start of the game, all the amazing Comp games of people giving it all and having fun doing it, now? forget it

    Well yes, it does. It's still a team game regardless if it's QP or Competitive... if you're dps and there's pharah/mercy combo and you're not changing to a hitscan to counter, then I would consider that throwing and blast you in return. You say that it's ruining for casual players but that's BS, but you do not take into consideration that casual players would find this annoying too that you're not helping out the team. Want a "casual" game? Play arcade mode. Just because you put "casual" in QP doesn't mean you should be a burden to your team.

    No, my attitude says to counter the enemy when necessary. It's a team game, QP or otherwise. Your attitude is the selfish, "me me me" one here. "Hurr it's only QP" is just another way of saying "it's casual so it doesn't matter if I have a throw pick".

    Of course I don't understand why they come in and sit in the corner ...
    I know I stopped playing because the players were toxic and not very intelligent.
    My favorite hero has always been Junkrat ... It didn't matter that I had most of the gold medals, I was still on fire and had very good stats - "BUT I SHOULD NOT PLAY THIS HERO!"

    Note that they don't make 1v1 PvP games anymore - that's no coincidence. People don't like to lose, preferring the responsibility to the team. Overwatch is the embodiment of this phenomenon

    Toxicity is plentiful now with the Archives event challenge modes. Take 'Close Quarters' for example, all enemies do a consistent Winston-like damage to you if you're near them, yet you still see people picking Tracer or Genji for it. Pretty soon they realize what fools they are and leave the game. And in 'Sympathy Gains' people refuse to focus targets and rather go on to solo their own groups of enemies like that's something the mode allows (it fucking doesn't). Out of like 15 attempts I've managed to get three competent PUGs and with that managed to finish three challenge missions. You need a premade for this shit, because people are arse.

    The game is dead, people just mess around, like what do you expect?
    This is the natural course of any multiplayer game.
