Honestly I find this frequently. I actually hit my season high a few days ago (its like 2705 or something?) and being at that horrible section of platinum that’s not quite diamond but not low enough to be Gold i was stumbling into people who were playing Torb and emoting, playing healer and trying to be a DPS with no out come, refusing to switch off of 4 dps, with my two stack being the one to solo tank and solo heal. I had a game where I was SOLO-HEALING as Brigitte (I didn’t realise until after we were halfway into the first round before switching to Mercy), and then had someone come into the chat and verbally abuse me (for being a girl, and because apparently we were losing because “our Mercy is sh*t and not healing”) and they then proceeded to spend the whole game crouch walking from our spawn to the edge of the map until our inevitable loss.
I honestly will never understand why people feel the need to intentionally come into competitive and ruin the game for other people. Like realistically you want to go into a competitive game wanting to win, with other people who also want to win! I know for a fact if I have a game where the whole team is positive and trying their best, even if we lose there’s always that little “well we tried, good luck with your games guys!” at the end of it.
I also agree that I wish the reports were looked into further, to result in more harsh actions against players who genuinely throw the game. But we all know that’s never going to happen…
What frustrates me is I can’t even avoid the people who are ruining my games, because we only have two avoid slots (MAYBE more for the small amount of time I’m queueing with people if they even have room on their list), and EVERY time I’ve unavoided someone to add someone else, that person I unavoid has been in my game THE VERY NEXT GAME. (Literally the other day I unavoided someone, and then they were in my next 3 matches, they proceeded to throw AGAIN and I had to switch my lists up so I could avoid them again.) It honestly brings down my morale a hell of a lot and I, admittedly, tilt fairly quick some times, and sure I could just “stop playing” but I love Overwatch, I love Brigitte and Symmetra and I would like to keep playing them and I want to get to a higher rank but it’s so hard when for some reason people think it’s necessary to ruin someones day. I dunno, maybe it’s just me and a handful of other people who cannot fathom what kind of amusement these rude people get, jumping onto a game that costs money just to try and take the fun out of it.
