I will readily admit I made a second account to play on, but it originally wasn’t intended for Overwatch comp. Though, the more I thought about it, the more appealing the idea seemed to be.
Let me state that my intention was never to play at a lower elo than what I currently sit at on my main account. My intention was to see how well I would do if I started on a blank slate account (honestly I’m a little bit higher on my alt than my main.).
The outcome is that I seem to play better or just have better matches on my alt in terms of DPS and Support but I’m roughly the same (maybe about 50-75 SR lower) on my Tank.
It was more of an experiment than anything.
But I get a lot of matches where I’m matched up with some people that just don’t feel like they belong in the rank they’re at. While I won’t straight up call everyone that bests me a smurf or an elo grinder (lets face it, a lot of people decay and then when they come back they’re usually stuck in Plat for a bit because they have to wipe the dust off their skills.) it is rather frustrating when you get matched up against someone that feels like they belong a few ranks ahead of you.
I won’t say that this happens every game because that would be overexaggeration. It does tend to happen more often than I’d like, however.
