If you have quit or have temporarily left Overwatch, why did you?
Here’s my reason. Well it’s several reasons.
The most obvious reason I stopped playing was because I started watching Naruto, and I am now addicted.
The main driving force keeping me from going back to the game right now is because of the way Mercy is being treated. Knowing Blizzard they’re gonna do what to Mercy what hey did to Ana. Will be irrelevant for a year and a half.
A secondary reason is just how stressful the game has been since I’ve been hovering in High Plat and Low Diamond. Damn I mean these games just suck the life force out of me.
And in Quick Play and Mystery Heroes I get paired with Silvers and Gold who don’t know how to counter Bastion and Torb.
It might be some time before i return to this game.
I have not quit, but I have been playing significantly less and getting much more frustrated than I ever have before. I still want to like the game.
For me the rise of CC and the increased popularity of CC heavy characters is just making the game unbearable to play. I’m a tank main and understand that it is better if I’m the one hit by the CC as I am most likely to survive, but at a certain point, I just want to play the game too.
I only play a couple of games a month because I am a completely average player that constantly gets matched against Master+ players.
It’s insanely discouraging to me that the game consistently matches me, an average player that only plays very rarely, with highly skilled people that have played the game every day since it came out.
It’s not just every once in a blue moon, it’s every single time I attempt to play the game.
I have no motivation to continue playing a game where my opponents outskill me so much I have only a tiny sliver of hope of winning each match.
Part of my feels like if I just keep playing and losing, the matchmaker will eventually see it’s putting me in unfair matches and lower its expectations, but that just doesn’t sound like a fun or useful use of my time.
Still playing like… 1-2 level ups a day… would prolly be more if the game balance wasn’t as much of a mess as it is right now. If at least the default way of playing was “taking the game seriously and trying to win” I might have found myself still enjoying it as much.
We are not supposed to play Overwatch forever even if you are a fan! There are loads of new games coming out now and tbh overwatch is 2 years old and it makes sense that many players will be bored and look for something else.
I guess I am just working on some other projects right now and don’t have much time to game. But I don’t bother to make much time to play it lately, because there hasn’t been enough new stuff. The new map that dropped will probably bring me back in for a few hours this week - but I hope Halloween isn’t as disappointing as Summer Games was - after SG my interest in this game began to plummet a bit -_- (it’s still my favorite game)
Slow balance patches. And when they finally do patch something, its usually more or less extremely disappointing.
Not only that but they dont know whether to balance the game for only the pros (nerfing the everloving s*it out of Mercy), or catering to the casual playerbase (Brigitte, Hanzo)
OWL has sucked the resorces from this game blatantly. The fanboys/girls are quick to defend it like a mob mentality, and it gets old quick.
The past event was the most disappointing thing ever. If the Halloween event is anything like Summer Games with microtransaction only skins taking up the event screen for a week, I’m done with this game.
