I was rewatching older clips from those weekly best of clips from Twitch on YouTube and I saw one where Guru had this Ana who was crying that their DPS kept dying. Guru told them that it really isn’t a big deal and it’s only a game, trying to calm the guy down, and the guy just went on this weird rant on how streamers have to be positive in a fake way for their viewers and ends up rage quitting midround.
So I go to the comments to see if anyone is talking about how weird that Ana was and, to my disbelief, most comments about that clip were siding with the Ana. They were saying that they understood the frustration that Ana was going through, and that Guru saying “it’s just a game” is bad because it’s competitive and it has to taken seriously. I found this both hilarious and frustrating because they’re implying that 1) Guru doesn’t take the game seriously (he’s always top 500 lol) and 2) the Ana’s behavior was in any way justified. It was really telling that these are the kinds of players to flame their teammates when things aren’t going their way, and that yelling at your teammates is justified when they’re having a bad game or playing really dumb.
Sorry for the rant but this has been bothering me all week. It’s just so weird to me how warped and desensitized players are after playing this game for almost 6 years. At the end of the day, it’s just game even if you’re top 500.
im so fucking tired of hog. i dont even play this game anymore but that obese animal is on every. god damn. game.
worst part? his gameplay is fucking stupid. just walk anywhere, hook someone, feed 0% ult charge with the buff, repeat. you dont even feel rewarded anymore for hitting him, hes so fucking stupid to play as, with and against. worst part, hes not even map dependant.
the counter??? its fucking ana. the ana that can be killed much more easily than any hog can be ever. not even a reliable counter. getting good isnt even worth it because hog teaches u to be afraid of a fat dps that has all the tools to play stupidly, he doesnt even teach you how to aim either and his dmg reduction is nuts.
I must know is there some sort of Sombra sniper combo i dont know anything about? I consider myself a decent sombra but it seems like lately almost everysingle time I choose her my fellow dd chooses either widow or hanzo. Is this a viable combo and im just not playing right?
Maybe they main those heros or they like to play them, they could say the same about u lol
Fuck the fat cunt that designed Ana.
You know nothing!
(But seriously fuck Anti nade)
Mother knows best.
I will forever and always be stuck in bronze support because team consistency and coordination is non-existent - also getting flamed in post game chat every game makes it so much more fun and uplifting!
Bro bronze is easy to get out of as healer. I'll give you easy tips. 3 heroes are really good in Bronze. Moira, Bap and Lucio.
I lost so many games trying to play Mercy/Ana but it just wouldn't work.
Identify who their good player is. If Junk/Mcree/Pharah is carrying enemy team, pick Bap. If your team is too disorganised and no one goes to point, play Lucio and disrupt enemy backline. If your DPS are abysmal (which happens in bronze) go Moira.
Once you make it Gold/Silver, Mercy Ana and Brig become very viable.
Purchase a new account - it's on 50% off - and **test your theory**.
New account MMR starts at Gold-Plat by default. If everything works out as you intended, you should be able to break out of Bronze.
Not true. I’ve climbed above bronze many times on my alt account as a support.
I feel you
Straight up if you’re in Bronze and you really think you belong elsewhere, start a new account and redo your placements. If you have improved, then you will place in gold or silver and should be able to hold onto it.
I bought this game for free and I want my money back, first game I played got 3 hackers. They should be paying me to play this. This game should literally be illegal. This shouldn’t even be free, they should be giving YOU money to play this, I’m reporting this game
I'm level 937 and have run into three definite hackers in my entire time in game (and maybe a dozen who were iffy). I'm not saying it's impossible, but why do you think the people who you played against were hacking?
Now that I look back two definitely weren’t hacking but were somehow under the map, one was definitely cheating cause i couldn’t kill them, not because of a shield or anything, I was playing wrecking ball and a Moira was alone and I sprayed her down for about a solid 10 seconds and her health didn’t drop at all
You on PC? Also I've never seen anyone have godmode i dont think it's a thing
I’m on ps4, I just know they were completely alone
Yeah sorry but there are no hacks on console :)
Cross play is with xbox, unless you specifically have a friend who's on pc and is in your group then you can be placed against pc players as well
I’m on ps4 and have cross play on bro
Yeah cross play is for consoles only not pc:)
Moira heals herself as she does damage. I can easily 1v.1 a Hammond with her and out heal his damage if I move around a little to avoid some of the hits or get a healing orb out. I've never seen anyone under a map, but only play on PC. Their support is pretty good with reports, though, so please let them know.
Another week, another post about how I hate turrets
So sick of seeing turrets in every game on both sides. It makes the game so boring.
WHO THE FUCK FLAMES THEIR TEAMMATES ON FUCKING XMAS. I AM SORRY YOUR GIFTS SUCKED BUT THEY DEF MATCH YOUR ATTITUDE
i am so tired of seeing roadhog *every single game*. I hope whoever decided to buff him from a "meh" hero to a viable spot before not touching the game for 8 months decides to just move on from their career in game balance, because he just sucks the fun out of every match you see him in, whether he's on your team or the enemy's
Ask Ana to nade his fat ass and sleep after/during his ult. Pick Reaper. Even Sigma is pretty solid vs Hog.
i know how to counter Hog, but it doesn't make him any less miserable to play with or against.
I LOVE DOOMFIST PLAYERS TEARS
MY TEAM CAN'T HAVE FUN BECAUSE WE ARE CONSTANTLY BEING CC'D WELL ENJOY BEING CHAIN HACKED THE REST OF THE MATCH
If you're a dps or tank, and go 1v6 and die, don't complain about heals, thx
Oh yea? If you'd joined it'll be **2v6**.
**Double** the odds!
WHY IS VOICELINE SPAM STILL A THING IN THIS GAME?! GET PEOPLE LITERALLY HOLDING DOWN SOME SIDE BUTTON ON THEIR MOUSE THAT'S ASSIGNED TO A VOICELINE, SO THEY JUST SPAM IT EVERY SINGLE SECOND IT'S OFF COOLDOWN.
DON'T KNOW WHY MATCH CHAT STILL EXISTS EITHER. ALL IT'S USED FOR IS SO THE SMURFS CAN GO "EZZZZZZ" AFTER WINNING. IT OFFERS ZERO VALUE. EVERYONE PRAISING RIOT FOR THEIR LOL CARTOON, BUT DON'T ACTUALLY WANNA COPY OF THEY REMOVED MATCH CHAT FROM THEIR GAME.
I AGREE, MATCH CHAT SERVES NO POSITIVE PURPOSE. IT IS LITERALLY ONLY USED FOR SHIT TALKING 99% OF THE TIME. I PERMANENTLY DISABLED IT AND I CAN'T BELIEVE IT TOOK THEM 5 FUCKING YEARS TO IMPLEMENT THAT.
Riot anime came after Valve's Dragon Blood. Riot were literally forced to make cos Valve showed it's great advertisement.
Also, you can mute voicelines and match chat.
What? If you mean arcane, arcane took 6 years to make..
Doomfist mains are lot more bearable now that they spam "Hot Cocoa" instead of "And Dey Say"
I’m so tired of forced cross play on PC. Always been against cross play on PC and always turn it off. This game, you can’t turn it off and it makes me remember why I stop playing this game for months at a time.
What are you talking about? You aren't matched with console players, unless a console player matches up with a PC player. Even then, that doesn't happen in competitive, and they don't have any aim assist? You have every advantage over a controller player.
That’s the problem is having an advantage over them when they end up on your team.
Not everyone plays ranked
And yes, I know how it works. Doesn’t stop console players getting onto my team.
You sound like someone who blames everyone but yourself when you lose.
Okay, yeah I guess you literally ADMITTING their weakness and why they don’t pair well with PC players, doesn’t mean anything.
Edit; 35 day old account replying on a rant thread. I don’t even know why I’m bothering.
Remember when this was a team game? And people used teamwork in voice chat? (I guess I don't all the way remember that either but it should be that way right?)
LET ME OPT OUT OF BACKFILL ALREADY FOR FUCKS SAKE. I'M SO FUCKING TIRED OF BEING PUNISHED FOR OTHER PEOPLE'S SELFISHNESS BLIZZ. I NEVER LEAVE EARLY EVEN ON THE STEAMING PILE THAT IS PARIS, SO WHY AM I CONSTANTLY BACKFILLED IN TO STOMP SCENARIOS.
STOP SCREWING ME BECAUSE LITTLE SHITHEADS CANT TAKE AN L
ON THE FLIP SIDE, BLIZZARD NEEDS TO REMOVE THE XP PENALTY FOR LEAVING, BECAUSE NOT ONLY DOES IT CLEARLY NOT WORK, IT ACTIVELY PUNISHES PLAYERS FOR NOT HAVING FUN AND MAKING A CONSCIOUS CHOICE TO BETTER THEIR STATE OF MIND. WHY SHOULD I BE PENALIZED FOR CHOOSING NOT TO ENGAGE WITH TERRIBLE MATCHMAKING, MAP DESIGN, AND BALANCE CHOICES? SELFISH OR NOT, I'M NOT OBLIGATED TO CONTINUE PLAYING A GAME FOR ANY REASON. I KNOW IT MEANS A LOPSIDED EXPERIENCE FOR BOTH TEAMS, BUT I HAVE TO COME FIRST IN MATTERS OF RECREATION BECAUSE MY MENTAL HEALTH AND EMOTIONAL STABILITY ARE FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OUTCOME OF A CASUAL VIDEO GAME PVP MATCH.
Okay but for real I remember once I got this angry at backfilling for the fifth time in one session. I decided I was gonna STOMP THE SHIT OUT OF THE OTHER TEAM for making them backfill. And, somehow, someway, my team managed to win the second round - THEN THE THIRD ROUND. I was play Soldier and I kept demanding my Ana just nano me so I could team up with our ulting Rein and make the other team stay off point. And it worked. It was exhausting but I felt like I won a small victory against all the other shit backfills I had.
THIS. I TOO AM SO TIRED CLEANING UP AFTER OTHER PEOPLE SCREW UPS AND RAGEQUITS ALL FOR MEASLY 400 BONUS XP.
I want a goth gf.
I WANT MY NEW MERCY AND ASHE SKIN. AND THROW IN THAT GENJI ONE AS WELL. STOP PLAYING AROUND OVERWATCH
Really wish they'd quit it with this bad habit of making *really good* skin designs for heroes, without ever making them into skins.
0 reason why Ashe can't have [this as a Summer skin](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EAQwYikUcAAv8Gc.jpg), Blizz, c'mon.
STOP PISSING YOUR PANTS WHEN SOMEBODY DECIDES TO PICK SOMBRA IN TOTAL MAYHEM TO COUNTER YOU BEING AN OBNOXIOUS DOOMFIST.
YOU ARE THE REASON I GO SOMBRA. FOOL.
DONT START NONE, WONT BE NONE.
FUCK THAT JUMPING FIST.
HE DESERVES THE SOMBRA CUZ HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS GETTING INTO
DON’t PLAY BALL OR WINSTON IN BRONZE. DIVE IS TO DIFFICULT FOR A BRONZE PLAYER
I KNOW ITS CHRISTMAS AND WERE MEANT TO BE POSITIVE BUT I CAN NOT GET ANY ENJOYMENT FROM THIS GAME ANYMORE. I CAN BARELY WIN ANY GAMES, ALL THE HEROES HAVE BECOME BORING TO PLAY AND IM FLAT OUT NOT HAVING ANY FUN. OW2 HAS DRIED UP OW1 AND I'LL NEVER FORGIVE BLIZZARD FOR THAT (as well as all the awful shit they've done)
SOUNDS LIKE IT'S TIME TO TAKE A BREAK, IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO STEP AWAY FOR A WHILE AND PLAY DIFFERENT GAMES TO ENSURE YOU DON'T BURN OUT! NOT LIKE OVERWATCH IS GONNA RUN AWAY OR GET ANY ACTUAL CONTENT SOON SO YOU WON'T MISS ANYTHING
I HAD TO START PLAYING GODFALL.
THAT ALSO SUCKS
GET OFF THE FUCKING HIGH GROUND ON DEFENSE.
DEFENSE ON GIBRALTAR OR DORADO AND THE PAYLOAD IS ON THE 3rd POINT AND YOURE STILL ON THE HIGH GROUND ON THE FIRST POINT. THE PAYLOAD PASSED YOU 14 MINUTES AGO AND YOURE STILL STANDING UP THERE SHIELDING.
IF YOURE ON ROUTE 66, THE TOP GAS STATION SETUP HAS LITERALLY NEVER WORKED EVER AND YOU ARE JUST GIVING UP THE GOOD CORNER FOR FREE.
There's a leaver in every competitive game this morning. Some of you miserable assholes really hate Christmas huh. Try not to ruin it for everyone.
People start queueing and timed out. They probably didn't realise the queue was gonna be as long as it did.
I queued 33 minutes for an Arcade Competitive No Limits game, figured what's the odds it'll trigger in the next minute. I went and poured myself a cup of water in kitchen. When I came back I was kicked for AFK. Fk.
I can't play Pharah for more than 10 seconds without someone switching to Soldier:76 and absolutely destroying me :(
Can't play the game cause I've been getting "Login Errors" for the past hour. Also, didn't get a single legendary skin from the five free Christmas loot boxes and when I did get one from levelling up it was just a 500 currency.
PLEASE IF YOU SEE PHARMERCY, GET A DVA INSTEAD OF FLAMING THE ONE HITSCAN WE HAVE, TO DEAL WITH BOTH (2!!!).
MAYBE A MERCY DMG BOOST POCKET??? THERES MORE WAYS THAT LEAD TO ROME
Hello I’m mad
Matchmaking IS garbage and I’m tired to being persuaded to think otherwise
Ever hear of weekend overwatch? It's the theory that more kids/casuals play on the weekend and cause the game quality to drop. It's even worse when schools are on vacation, like winter or summer break. Any matchmaking issues are exacerbated.
I've been keeping track of this thing internally. I've found here in the states my quality of matches peak on weekdays between 4-8pm and fall sharply past 11pm, and after 8pm Friday quality falls and stays low until Monday afternoon.
I've actually been a lot happier playing these hours.
Then by all means, weekend started a year ago and continues till this day.
IF AN ENEMY PHARAH IS ON A KILLING SPREE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SNIPE/SHOOT HER AND CONFIRM KILL. NO, YOU CAN’T FIGHT HER OFF BY YOU PICKING PHARAH TOO! YOU’VE GOT THE AIM OF A SHITFACED MAN ON A FRIDAY NIGHT AT 2AM! THANK YOU FOR COMING TO MY TED TALK.
CAN PEOPLE STOP JUDGING OTHERS FOR WHO THEY PLAY? IT ISNT 2018 ANYMORE, PEOPLE CAN PLAY MERCY IF THEY WANT. THEY BOUGHT THE GAME, THEY CAN PLAY IT HOW THEY WANT. I MAIN MERCY BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WANTED TO PLAY HEALER WHEN THE GAME FIRST CAME OUT AND I ENJOY PLAYING HER. CAN PEOPLE STOP RAGGING ON PEOPLE WHO MAIN HER??? I DONT JUDGE OTHERS FOR WHO THEY PLAY. UGHHHH. THE GAME IS FOR FUN. NOT TO JUDGE PEOPLE FOR PLAYING A HERO THAT THEY LIKE. I PLAY OTHER CHARACTERS BUT SHE IS MY FAVOURITE. I DONT GET IT.
If its quickplay, sure. Play whatever. If its ranked, you need to be picking what is going to win and you need to switch if something isnt working.
I totally get that, but I don’t play ranked anymore lol. This was in quick play.
EDIT: I also agree that you should switch to what works in comp, not just play one hero.
Exactly like I don’t understand people who feel the need to attack someone over their hero choice. I have my heroes that I hate and I scoff when I see them but I’d never flame someone for it lol
I only say something when you're playing into a direct counter
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF FROGS, STOP AND CONSIDER THE TEAM COMP FOR AT LEAST A SECOND BEFORE WE RUN OFF TO OUR DOOM. IF IT LOOKS RIDICULOUS AND BAD, SWITCH A CHARACTER. ANYTHING MIGHT BE AN IMPROVEMENT.
IF IM PLAYING MYSTERY HEROES AND I HAVE GOLD DAMAGE GOLD KILLS GOLD HEALING AND GOLD OBJECTIVE TIME, YET WE’RE *STILLLL* LOSING, WHAT MORE CAN I FUCKING DO?!!?!
HAPPY CAKE DAY!!! RAAAAAAAH
PRAY TO RNGESUS
CAN IT NOT PUT A PLATINUM PLAYER AGAINST US I KNOW ITS QUICK PLAY BUT PLATINUM VS LOW GOLD SEEMS A BIT EXTREME
I'd rather a true plat or diamond than the fucking smurf ruining everyone's games with their level 5 alt account.
That was what finally pushed me to quit playing overwatch.
If you think that's extreme you are in for a rough time.
Had a brainfart meant diamond shiny symbol
