You’re reporting people because they are being forced into matches where everyone is a higher skill level? You think it’s fun being the worst player on the team? You think you have it bad??? But you’re punishing the people who have it worse than you do. That’s the stupidest thing I’ve read this week.
Yeah, that’s what I did for 1.5 years… I guess I’ll just go back to it.
For me, I’m just getting put on team after team where I’m the worst player on the team by far and everyone tells me to kill myself every match. Last season was normal and fun, and I won 59% of my matches and hit Gold for first time. This season, I’m on teams with all alt accounts and they are shocked a (now) Silver player is in their lobby and they pray for my death continuously via text chat. All I do is apologize, ask them who they want me to swap to and promise I’m trying my best… But of course, unless I actually kill myself, nothing I offer is gonna make them happy.
Not sure what that means, I don’t remember every saying or thinking I was good. I did enjoy last season though, I was “good” in the matches I played in at my skill level.
It’s impossible for anyone to prove, but almost every game my team has one player that the rest of the team is supposed to “carry”. I know the scoreboard doesn’t tell the full story of the game, but it seems every game there’s one teammate finishing the game at like 4-18 with 3k dmg. This typa stuff rarely happened in OW1 ranked
Oh god, no one wants to play with me… I wouldn’t wanna ask anyone to do that, it’d just be horrible for them. I just wanna be able to play with and against people at my level like it was literally all of last season. This whole “being the reason we lost” thing is about as unfun as it gets… I’ll just play QP until things get better. In those matches, if I suck, no one cares, and I still end up in plenty of matches with people at my level, too, where I tend to actually shine a lot of matches.
Yeah I’d say their are two reasons people struggle to rank up. Not teaming up with people. And not communicating in games. If you can team up with others you’ll have a massive advantage so long as you’re both semi focused.
I’d say it is almost a requirement for you to have consistent games at least!
Duoing at the very least is a huge advantage.
Back when I was garbage at the game, (I’m still garbage now, but I was garbage then too). Duoing was how we got out of low ranks into somewhere where we could learn the game.
Low ranks is inconsistent as hell, so learning while there is super hard. Getting out of low ranks is the best way to get the tools to get you out of low ranks (which hopefully people can see is a problem…)
Honestly, after getting team-killed 3 times in a row, I’m not leaving the spawn. There is no reason to ever have more than 5 deaths in a match. Part of that is just stubborn stupidity for even leaving the spawn in the first place. The stomp matches are less than 10 minutes long anyways, just take damage when you need to and go retreat back to spawn so you don’t get booted.
My toughts exactly. I have a very different experience than those guys.
I feel like I can influence the result of most games. Of course there are those ganes here and there, but usually I have a fair chance of winning if I play to my full potential.
Yeah, it is weirdly regional. I’ve NEVER seem as much anger as I’ve seen from the states servers. I think there is a very real way you could measure stress withing a society by how people treat each other in games.
Even the OCE is kindness and light compared to them, and we have Australians.
Personally, I think it is just people having things break in other parts of their life, and them bringing that to the games they play.
But that is just the ramblings of an old man I guess
