Well what I mean is when someone picks a character and continuously dies leaving the team at a disadvantage. In that case I really think something isn’t working with their character choice, whether its that they’re being countered by the enemy’s picks, the map we’re on, or our own team synergy. Or maybe they really do just need to practice more in a skirmish or something because they’re unfamiliar with their abilities.
Sometimes all of those things are working against you and it’s better to save playing that character for another time, because not only are you not even going to get to play that character and learn them if you’re living in spawn, but you’re also making it frustrating for the rest of your team. I would think it’s not enjoyable for the individual as well to repeatedly die.
It’s not as if i’d say, “you can never play Mei in QP until you’ve mastered her in practice modes!” but, maybe if you pick her on the first point of junkertown and there’s a pharah/widow etc and she dies repeatedly before she can contribute to the fight, maybe it would be best for everyone to save practicing her for a better situation. That situation could be the next game, it’s not a big deal.
it sucks because often I’m in the mood to play a specific character, but I don’t because i know it would be a bad idea once I que up to the map and see my team comp etc. like people have said, this game is all about counters and switching it up when necessary, it’s part of the game. just because youre practicing doesn’t mean you dont abide by the same courtesies as the rest of us.
