I agree with most of what you said. Maybe there was a hint of salt and rant left in the comment. I think that last session really gave me some sort of PTSD. After really trying to improve and not let the matches and tilt get to you while you’re playing and focusing on yourself… rewatching the footage made me more upset than while I was playing. Yes, I did mistakes, but damn I saw a match where one of my tracers just blinked to the point for 5 whole minutes as if it were OT, touch point without blinks left and die. She was part of a threestack… I saw her die 3+ times per minute and that really got to me which I can see now while rereading my post. You’re right that I did go off topic there for a moment.
Aiming to play just slightly better insread of immediately aiming high is actually stupid but a good idea. I mean it’s stupid to not think of it. It’s like trying to chew of too big a piece. I think I’ll rewatch abd VoD reviews of mid-highplats for a while.
I think you can guess that Lucio is my second favourite character to play but he seems awfully popular lately and I don’t get to play him much…
LFG on console is the absolute worst experience I’ve had so far. People talk and start positive but as soon as they die they start blaming their teammates and even leave. It’s been social cancer. Which is annoying, I really had high hopes for this feature.
Again, I really don’t expect to lose and I really do all I can to win, but how do I put this… I come from a VERY selftoxic behavoour with OW, even though no other game makes me ever toxic. I would just start yelling and tilting in front of my screen. What I do now is no longer do that because of ally mistakes and focus on my play, but my play is still focused o trying to win the game. But yes I do admit that games where I see my team trickle in for 3 min straight without listenting to group up calls… yeah I do give up on those matches.
I’ve been working on this maybe even more than I do on improving my gamestyle as I know this will be very helpful in general. I think OW has the potential to train you be immovable and unwavering towards tilt or frustrating situations.
And finally: the VC problem on europe console is bad. Because if it’s not the 12 year olds, it’s the language barriers: russians/easteuropeans and arabs are the death of me. I can literally talk every european language: italian, lux, underatand dutch halfways, german, french, english, understand and talk a little spanish, and underatand somewhat portuguese…
Yet the game queues me with russians and arabs all the time. I can’t even use my language background to somewhat decipher the arab tongue. I started learning russian but yeah… that’ll take some time
