It’s been quite some time since I lasted played. I initially uninstalled for about 2 years and didn’t even look back and I’ve been a happier person ever since. I downloaded hots again because I needed a throw away game until shadowlands dropped and I made the unfortunate mistake of buying imperius and playing him and got addicted once again…
I started doing competitive and it was great at first, but then I started losing left and right. I won 6 games in a row and lost 2 and just like that, those 6 wins meant NOTHING, because my points dropped me down from almost silver 1 to silver 3 IN JUST TWO LOSSES!
About a week and half into hots and I’m stuck at silver 3, no matter how hard I carry a team and set up kills. My teams always consist of ragers, morons, people that are playing casually in competitive and use the excuse “it’s just a game” to excuse their poor play, people with terrible internet connections and people that can’t speak even a bit of english, so pings are useless. Meanwhile, the enemy team has a squad of 3-5 people, smurfs and just all around average players that really shouldn’t be in low tier.
I remember why I quit again and it’s because this matchmaking system makes overwatch’s matchmaking system look like royalty. The balance is pathetic for some heroes, like mei, imperius, deathwing and kt. The chat is a racist, political mess and makes f2p games chats look clean, because there’s zero moderation.
The absolute WORST part of this game is how it sets you up to lose and no matter how much you win, two losses will absolutely destroy you. Why is the punishment so harsh?
TL;DR: This game feels god awful to play in just about every single aspect.
